You can be an artist. Willow Rosales will show you how

February 27, 2013

Art isn’t just for children or aspiring Monet types. Colville resident Willow Rosales shares her skills as print maker and mixed media talent in non-credit classes at Spokane Community College’s Colville Center. A 2005 graduate of Fairhaven College in Bellingham, Rosales taught printmaking workshops at the college until 2010. She came back to Stevens County a couple of years ago with her husband and fellow artist, Chris, to be closer to family (her parents own Quillisascut Farms in Rice).
Tell us about the non-credit classes you will be teaching.

‘It’s much different than the media portrays’

February 26, 2013

Husband and wife team Dirk Boswell and Michelle Lee’s trip to Pakistan almost didn’t happen. Between the aggravating visa process and attacks by the Taliban in the southern part of the country, the 12-day visit seemed like a plan that might never materialize.
However, at the last minute, after Boswell and Lee had been told at the Los Angeles consulate that it would take two to three months to get their visas, Michelle received an email from a contact in Pakistan that said their applications had been approved.

Iraq War vet reunited with lost dog

February 22, 2013

The black little dog, of Scottish Terrier descent, stood up on his back legs with his front two paws pressed against the bars of his kennel. His shaggy hair fell over his eyes and his pink tongue stuck out in a cheerful grin. If he was a person, you would think he was smiling. Perhaps, he was grinning because he was finally being reunited with his owners after three months of separation.
“Hello, Charlie,” said the Animal Control officer. She opened the door and pushed him off her green uniform, as he jumped up on her legs in greeting. This was Charlie's day.
