Welcome to my home

February 5, 2013

Most people that have clutter in their homes have it for no other reason than most of us: we don’t know what to do with all of our stuff. Hence, it starts to formulate small piles, or, in extreme cases, inter¬vention broadcasted to the world on reality TV (A&E’s Hoarders, anyone?).
Colville resident Wendy Cook, 58, is an exception to both rules. Yes, she has a lot of stuff and she collects it on purpose, but unlike an actual hoarder, she can easily let it go if she needs to. Not only that, but she has managed to arrange her various décor in a way that is aesthetically pleasing.

Head coach Rocky Verbeck credits the work the Cougars put in on defense and the players finding their roles on offense with a run that has carried the Cougars close to a Northeast A League championship as the league enters its final week before the District 7 1A playoffs get started next Monday.

Indians on the road at West Valley, Cheney & Pullman

Colville High (5-3, 9-7) faces its most difficult—and most important—stretch of the season this week.

CHS is at West Valley on Tuesday before heading to Cheney (3-6, 6-10) on Thursday. Game time is 5:45 p.m.
Colville will make the long trek to the Palouse and a visit to Pullman on Saturday. Game time is 4:15 p.m.

Indians share GNL dual championship

It’s post-season time for high school wrestlers in Washington state. Fourth-ranked Colville High, who moved up to the class 2A Great Northern League from the Northeast A in the fall, made their return foray into the GNL a successful one with a league dual co-championship (with East Valley).
The Indians’, who would be the odds-on favorite to win a 1A championship if they were still members of the NEA, suffered a lone dual loss this winter to five-time defending State 2A champion Deer Park.

Second Amendment gets first billing at City Council

January 29, 2013

Emotions ran high at last Tuesday’s Colville City Council meeting when the council voted against passing a proclamation that would have rec¬ognized Feb. 4, 2013 as Second Amendment Appreciation Day. It was standing room only in the council chambers with people trickling out into the adjacent hallway.

The administration in the district has taken a proactive stance rather than a reactive response to the latest school shooting tragedy.

’

January 23, 2013
