Cowgirl author

January 4, 2013

When the doctor told Dawn Nelson that she had cancer in 2005, she was six months pregnant with her first child. Test results had revealed a cancerous tumor in her stomach, and Nelson was informed that she probably wouldn't live to meet her baby girl.
Out of a desire to have her baby know who she was, Nelson began to write a memoir of her life. Unknown to Nelson, this book would change the course of her career.
“We decided to go ahead and have her [the baby]. And I started writing my first book so that she would know who I was,” explained Nelson.

Chewelah picks up wins

December 31, 2012

The Chewelah boys’ basketball team remained undefeated in Northeast A League play with wins against Riverside and Lakeside before Christmas
Jenkins High head coach Rocky Verbeck credits strong bench play from Tommy Norman, Cordell Bean, Deylin Peone and Lars Berger for the Cougars ability to grind out wins.
“I think that is going to be our theme this year--we ground out those wins,” said Verbeck. “They don’t score often, but our bench is making the most of their minutes and that is always big for us on the defensive side of things.”

Indians play without Hubbard

It’s tough to win without your all-league meal ticket.
So it went for Colville High (4-4) in last Thursday night’s non-league boy’s basketball game with visiting Priest River.
The Indians were playing without their 6-9 junior post, Matt Hubbard. The team’s leading scorer and rebounder was in Oklahoma with his family.
Colville played well early and led by as many as nine points in the third quarter before Priest River found their collective shooting eye.

Thieves make off with life-sized coffee cup

December 29, 2012

Thieves helped themselves to a cup of coffee at Talk-n-Coffee in Colville last Wednesday evening, but not just any cup. The coffee shop’s white, sheet metal cup sculpture, which bears the Talk-n-Coffee logo, was stolen from its resting place on the sidewalk in front of the business, located at 119 East Astor Avenue.
The cup, which was made at a local metal worker’s studio in 2007, stands at over three feet tall and serves as a float in community parades and is considered an enjoyable landmark for, “the coffee shop family” according to Talk-n-Coffee owner Scott Sanders.
