Closed for repairs

September 1, 2011

Walking into the Colville Public Library’s (CPL) basement is like walking into organized chaos---it’s planned, but thankfully not permanent. Books and furniture are stacked in cluttered, but contained rows. Patrons with an item on hold can come in on the side entrance off of Astor Street to retrieve it, but there’s no milling about in the books that have taken temporary shelter in the building’s lower level.

Kettle Falls will improve this fall

August 31, 2011

Last fall was a disappointing inaugural season for Kettle Falls High in their debut into Class B football. The Northeast League, the old Bi-County, was anything but hospitable to the Bulldogs, who finished 2-8 overall.
With a loaded sophomore class (20 players) and a retooled offense, look for KFHS to experience more on-field success this fall.
How that translates into what looks like another rigorous Northeast is anybody’s guess. Check back in early November.

Columbia/Inchelium one of the teams to beat

August 31, 2011

Columbia-Inchelium, in its second season as a combined Class B-8 football team, should be one of the teams to beat in the Northeast 1B North this fall. The Timberwolves, 7-4 last season after finishing the 2010 campaign with a quarterfinal loss to then second-ranked Cusick, lost significantly to graduation. But there is enough returning talent to pretty much guarantee that Columbia-Inchelium will be a factor in the league race once again. “We have 10 kids who played last season,” said longtime Columbia High head coach and Timberwolves coach, Chuck Wyborney.

Chewelah Cougars gear up for football

August 31, 2011

The Chewelah Cougars look to push into the top half of Northeast A football this season with many returning players at key positions and retooled offensive and defensive lines.
Last season, the Cougars were hot early, getting off to a fast 5-1 start before losing three straight and then winning their final game of the season.

A lot of question marks over Colville High camp

August 31, 2011

One of the greenest and least experienced Colville High football team in recent memory will get the 2011 high school football season underway Friday night against traditional opening foe Lakeland. Game time in Colville is 7 p.m.
Lakeland (0-1) is coming off a 46-21 loss last Friday night in Coeur d’ Alene to Idaho power Lake City.

Kids, make way for the old-timers

August 29, 2011

One of the hottest days of a belated summer greeted youngsters from barely walking to age 18 recently at the Arden Old-Timers Kids’ Day in the Arden arena. Youngsters competed in events that included pole bending, mutton bustin’, goat tail tying and goat tail pulling and calf riding. The popular event is sponsored by the Arden Old-Timers Rodeo Association. The annual Arden Old-Timers Rodeo, usually held each May, will be staged at the Arden Old-Timers Rodeo Arena on Saturday, Sept. 17.

CHS Cross-Country will be strong again

August 29, 2011

Colville High lost some significant talent off last season’s State 1A runner-up boy’s team and a strong girl’s contingent. But the Indians have enough returning talent and some talented newcomers who should make one of the top Class A programs competitive once again. Early-on, veteran head coach Dean Fischer is talking a lot about “rebuilding.” And how could blame him. CHS lost state competitors Colton Hastings and Alaina Kowitz to graduation.

Man jailed for shaking baby

August 26, 2011

On Wednesday night a six-week-old female infant from Colville was transported via Med Star to a Spokane hospital.
Authorities say the baby showed signs of abuse and Spokane Police began an investigation. Spokane Police alerted Stevens County Sheriff Kendle Allen to the abuse and Stevens Co. Sheriff's deputies interviewed 18-year-old David M. Ordway, who lived with the baby's mother.
According to Allen, Ordway confessed to abusing the child. As of now, it’s unclear whether he is the baby’s biological father.

Play the ball as it lies...or with creative lies

August 25, 2011

‘Golf is the cruelest of sports. Like life, it’s inherently unfair. It’s a harlot. A trollop. It leads you on. It never lives up to its promises…it’s a boulevard of broken dreams. It plays with men. And runs off with the butcher.’
--Jim Murray

Stalking perfection

August 25, 2011

Like a predominant number of fly fishermen, Colville’s Jesse Nicholas is a fisherman’s fisherman--a purist, if you will. After all, while he is erudite in any debate over the nuances of graphite vs. bamboo fly rod and understands the reasons for both, it’s clear where Nicholas and his allegiances lie—it’s bamboo with his dry fly pattern. Nicholas isn’t going to poor mouth the spin casters, or graphite and fiberglass. Different strokes and casts for different folks. It’s just that he prefers angling a different way. No, Nicholas isn’t going to take that bait.
