Considering he was a medic, Sergeant First Class Wyatt Goldsmith probably wouldnâ€™t mind having a medical building named after him. Not that he would personally seek or demand the honor, but it seems an appropriate dedication to a man who made the consideration of otherâ€™s well-being one of the top priorities in his all too short life.
Goldsmith, a member of the United States Armyâ€™s Special Forces, was killed while serving as a combat medic in the Helmund Province of Afghanistan with Company A, 3rd Batallion Special Forces ODA 1314 in July 2011.
He was 28-years-old.
COLVILLE--The Libraries of Stevens County will be eliminating Saturday hours at the Kettle Falls, Colville, Chewelah, Loon Lake, and Lakeside libraries starting January, 2015. After the recent levy failure, library staff and library board members met to finalize a budget for 2015. Over the course of the fall, there had been a hiring freeze when two employees left the library to take other jobs. A total of 60 staff hours were left vacated.
Here is a list of upcoming events from the Colville Chamber of Commerce. Chamber luncheons are Tuesdays at noon at the Colville Eagle's Lodge and are open to the public.

The Colville Tree of Sharing is now open and needs support. Sponsored by the Colville Rotary Club, the tree is located in the Key Bank lobby at 211 South Main Street and is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The Tree of Sharing gives citizens and businesses in the Colville area an opportunity to brighten the holiday season for children in Stevens County. There are currently 130 tags remaining on the tree.
Stop by Key Bank and select a gift tag from the tree, or drop off a donation. Generosity will help a child who otherwise may not receive a gift this Christmas.
Kettle Falls High School is also hoping to provide students with a Job Shadow opportunity. Job shadowing will take place during the month of February. There are a total of 68 sophomores that we will be transporting in small numbers throughout the community to job shadow. We ask that you have one student on any given day (your availability) and we will provide you with resumes and generic job applications from the students that are interested in your career so that you can select and know about anyone coming to job shadow.
The atmosphere in the Keller House last Monday was merry, if slightly scattered, as volunteers prepared the historic Colville home for the annual Christmas Tour.
Wreaths were waiting to be hung and Christmas lights illuminated the dining room. Amidst all the holiday decoration, photos of men and women in the United States Armed Forces surveyed the scene, coinciding with this yearâ€™s theme, â€śIâ€™ll be Home for Christmas.â€ť
