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.

“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.

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.
