Alternative Energy at CHS shines

May 30, 2014

Been thinking about converting to solar power?
The students in Colville High School’s Alternative Energy class can do that. Building a radiant heater? They can do that too. In fact, when it comes to alternative energy and creating the means to harness it, there’s not much the students can’t do. Money and time are the only restrictions.

April 16, 2014

It’s time for folks to step up to the rows.
The Colville Community Garden (CCG) is in dire need of some volunteers to assist with planting preparation and maintenance. Whether it’s weeding, fer¬tilizing (organically, that is), watering, hauling soil, etc., and whether people rent a plot or not, assistance is much desired.
“We would really appreciate the help,” says Mike Kisman, Manager of the garden, “You don’t have to be a gardener yourself. Whether you rent a plot or not, we’re in serious need of people who are wiling to contribute their time.”

A man and his dog in Kettle Falls

February 27, 2014

Nathaniel Waters settles down on the front porch of Meyers Falls Market in Kettle Falls and hugs the elderly, fluffy white dog laying on her bed and nestled in her sweater near the front door. Her slow, deliberate movements show her age (16-years-old), but she looks at Waters with the unconditional love that only canines feel for their humans.
“You’re such a good girl,” Waters confirms, petting Bella’s head and bestowing a kiss on her nose. Her tails thumps the boards in a lackadaisical way, as if to quietly affirm, “Yes, I am. And you are a good human.”

Avista wants increase in gas, eletrical rates

February 11, 2014

It’s cold outside, but the news that Avista will be raising its gas and electrical rates over the next 11 months probably doesn’t do much to warm the hearts of customers.
According to Avista Corp. spokeswoman Debbie Simock, the utility company wants to raise power and natural gas rates in Washington next win¬ter, including a large increase in the basic charge for each service.
Avista serves more than 241,000 electric and nearly 152,000 gas customers in Washington.
