Avista wants increase in gas, eletrical rates

“Dick has treated us well,” says Ron Tiner. “He’s only locked the door on us once.”
“I was trying to convince
them that we were closed, but they got in anyway, despite my best efforts,” Bosin jokingly retaliates.
The men laugh and take sips from their coffees; an everyday
routine
that McDonald’s has seen almost daily for the past 12 years.

January 28, 2014

Just looking at Stazya Richman and Myriah Pazereckas, one might not think the two women have much in common: Rich­man is a classically trained vo­calist who sings like a bird and Pazereckas is a counselor with an analytical mind. But one thing the two longtime friends are enthusiastic about is Dances of Universal Peace (DUP), the monthly song and dance movement that takes place in the Colville Public Li­brary.
