Indians split with DP, Pullman

An issue that has plagued the Colville High girl’s basketball team all season long came into play last Saturday evening against visiting Pullman. The Indians (7-7, 3-3) turned in subpar second and third quarters offensively and that was just enough of a cushion for the Greyhounds (10-5, 6-1), who had to withstand a fourth quarter CHS rally to post a 48-43 win.
Back on Jan. 15, Colville blasted host Deer Park (0-15, 0-7) 62-16.

Why not be a hospice volunteer?

January 17, 2013

In 2013 why not consider becoming a Hospice of Spokane (HOS) volunteer? There is always a need for dedicated, compassionate men and women to assist the Hospice team in the care plan for a patient and their family, particularly in the Tri-County area, says Volunteer Coordinator Sharon Angle.
“It would be really nice to have more volunteers for this in our area, particularly men,” states Angle. “We hope people will take advantage of this training; all it requires is your time.”
