Sandy Hook: A resounding effect

December 18, 2012

Stevens County resident Velena Hawthorne doesn’t have television, but her family does have Internet. So last Friday, as she was idly glancing over the contents of Google news, she saw the headlines saying there had been a shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, CT.
As she scrolled down the article, she saw that the majority of those killed were children, all under the age of 10. She gasped audibly, causing her boyfriend, Tyler Peterson, to come in from the next room to see what was wrong.

Open hearts, open doors: From Georgia to Colville

December 11, 2012

Hunters during deer hunting season, or any other hunting season for that matter, hardly garner more than a glance from passersby on the street or in a store or restaurant in Stevens County. It’s business as usual in one of the most verdant and popular hunting regions in the Northwest.
So not very many people may have paid much attention to a middle-aged man making his way around Colville and Loon Lake with a 16-year-old boy in tow, both dressed in warm clothing and hunting apparel.

Auto Vue to close after next year

December 10, 2012

In 2013 the Colville’s Auto Vue Drive-in theater will celebrate its 60th birthday, and its retirement party at the same time. Owner Steve Wisner said he will not re-open the drive-in after the summer of 2013 because he can neither afford new technology or repairs to the movie screen.
To stay in business, Wisner must buy a new digital processor for the drive-in that will cost $82,000. Movie suppliers will make the switch from 35 mm film to a digital format after 2013, and Wisner will not be able to buy movies on film for his processor any longer.

Day 1: Sept. 27, 2012

My dear wife Shelley seemed a little cranky to me the past couple of days. I now know that she was missing me already. She doesn’t like being alone at night. I understand that. I don’t like it either. I would rather take her along with me. Next time?
