Anderson echoed a sentiment shared by many in the Colville valley and surrounding com¬munities, what with record breaking amounts of rain for the area dominating the month of June.

July 2, 2012

A lot of fuss is made of Dr. William Foege’s height. After all, the man is six-foot-seven-inches tall, so it’s safe to say he gets noticed in a crowded room.

After all, when the couple is not enjoying fishing on Lake Roosevelt or looking after their home in Kettle Falls, they work out six days a week and run races and marathons all over the country. Both finished first in their respective age categories in the annual Bloomsday run for the masses earlier this month in Spokane.
