'The new face of history'

May 9, 2012

One may ask what man does after he has conquered the frontier. Interestingly, he often looks back to see how it was done.
Locally, this attention to our early roots is taking an approach that project volunteer Joe Barreca said is the “new face of history.”
“When many of us learned history, it was canned and written down in certain boundaries approved by a publisher somewhere,” Barreca said. “But if we really start looking at the history of communities and individuals, we can get to the same place that highlights wars and economic booms, for instance.

Schools spared the axe, but enrollment wanes

May 1, 2012

Local school districts were spared the financial axe during the 2012 Washington State Legislative session as legislators struggled to address a $1.1 billion shortfall in the state budget. While there were a number of proposals to cut funding to public education, public schools came out relatively unscathed.
“It is looking like there will be little to no change in per pupil funding for the 2012/2013 school year,” said Colville School District Superintendent Ken Emmil. “However, federal program funding is up in the air right now and there are hints that there will be cuts for next year.

Peace sign proposal pulled

April 17, 2012

The Colville City Council chambers turned into an ideological battleground last Tuesday as community mem¬bers volleyed back and forth during a public comment pe¬riod.
The issue at hand was whether or not a trio of local residents should be allowed to turn the “C” into a peace sign on Colville Mountain for Earth Day. The author of the pro¬posal, Peter Quinn, withdrew his proposal, saying he “didn’t mean to offend anyone,” and that his desire to construct the temporary peace sign was not politically motivated.

March was a very wet lion

April 11, 2012

Though the phrase is “In like a lion, out like a lamb,” there was nothing docile about the month of March’s exit, as significant rainfall broke records in the Colville Valley.
As of Saturday, March 31, the area had received 4.25 inches of rain for the month of March, exceeding the old record of 3.55 inches in 1987.
“It’s a weather occurrence of note, but it is that time of year,” says Meteorologist John Livingston of the National Weather Service Office in Spokane. “We had a dry winter for the 2011-2012 season and it looks like the wet weather is just starting to kick in.”
