Defending Great Northern League and District 7 2A softball champion Colville High got the 2014 softball season off to a fast start last week with three wins.
Playing in weather conditions more reminiscent of a winter that doesn’t seem to want to exit stage left until next November, the Indians came from behind to post a dramatic 5-4 win over Northwest Christian in the season opener for both teams last Thursday at frigid Vaagen Park.

"I'd love to run the Iditarod someday"

February 20, 2014

Most 10-year-olds aren’t thinking about hooking up a team of sled dogs and hopping
on the back end of a sled for a ride through the snow-covered woods in the dead of a Northwest winter. Usually, it’s video games or playing some sport that involves the use of a ball.
Lane Esvelt isn’t any 10-year-old.
Sure, Lane likes playing football and baseball. He shoots trap. But what the fifth-grader at Kettle Falls Middle School really gets excited about is hanging
with and running his dogs.
Mushing.
No, that’s not a bowl of oatmeal in the morning.
