CEO cites forest service policy for Stimson closure

September 28, 2011

Within the next three months, the Stimson Lumber mill at Arden will close due to a combination of economic factors and federal policies that CEO Andrew Miller said are “a real shame.”
“While it is regrettable that the mill is closing, the real tragedy is what has happened on the Colville National Forest in recent years,” said Miller. “Our closure is the natural result of Forest Service policy.”
The Stimson Lumber operation currently employs 67 people in the area who will be out of work when the mill closes this winter, likely within 30 to 100 days, Miller said.

Husband & wife aces

September 22, 2011

Rare is the hole in one. A feat even more eye-popping is a husband and wife recording holes in one a week apart—on the same hole. But that’s what Sarah and Bob Cleaver (pictured) did earlier this month on the par 3 16th hole at Dominion Meadows Golf Course. Bob, playing with Sarah at the time, aced the 142-yard 16th hole on Sept. 8. Cleaver’s nine-iron hit just right of the pin and spun into the cup. The city of Colville Building Inspector, who has holes in one on the second and ninth holes at DM, said his latest ace from the elevated tee on no.
