Give a shout out to a soldier

December 5, 2011

In an effort to provide a link between United States soldiers and their loved ones at home, the Statesman-Examiner is inviting the public to post a video message to a family member or friend in the military on the S-E website, www.statesmanexaminer.com.

The Colville High School auditorium is empty, save for Gary Killings sitting at the Grand Piano in the center of the stage. He plays middle C, repeating the chord methodically as he adjusts the gleaming instrument’s music pins to achieve the perfect pitch.
“I once had a little girl stand next to me for over 30 minutes while I tuned her family’s piano,” Killings recalls. “I was surprised that she just stood and watched me the whole time as I did just what I’m doing now. Then, finally, she looked at me and asked, “Don’t you know any other songs?”

Animal shelter suffers fire

November 23, 2011

A fire that razed one of the animal sheds at Colville Valley Animal Sanctuary last week has put the organization in a tenuous situation. Already limited facilities and inclement weather make it difficult to care for the animals housed at the Arden facility. The Nov. 16 fire took out the “puppy shed” that was the only heated facility at the sanctuary. It is suspected that the fire centered around the woodstove used to heat the building. Kennel Manager Nancy Rose said a dog and two cats could not be rescued from the burning structure.
