Let the wind blow and the thunder roll. Sunday eveningâs squall through the Colville Valley managed to knock out power and do a fair amount of property damage, but wasnât able to dampen the Colville High School cross country teamâs appointed 2013 season kick-off.
While much of the Valley languished in the dark after a strong thunderstorm knocked out large portions of the local power grid, a swift response by local AVISTA crews had the metered gold restored to CHS well before the Indiansâ annual midnight appointment with their new season.
Area high school football teams started practice sessions one week earlier than their volleyball, cross country and soccer brethren. Practice sessions for area high school football teams started August 19. Colville High head coach Randy Cornwellâs Indians have been working the âdaily doubleâ routine every other day.

In accompanying photos, Cornwell works with some of his linemen during a recent practice session.

After a long hiatus, the Kettle Falls Community Chest remodel has finally started. The building had housed both the Food Bank and the Thrift Store; due to lack of room, the Thrift Store had to be closed. âYes, we are going to re-open it. It was based on donations only, we never had a fixed price on anything, and weâve lost $4,000 in revenue per year; that doesnât seem like a lot, but those are donations. We donât pay for any of the items that we have, and we donât demand prices on anythingâat all,â said Director Susan Urhausen.
A little change of pace. That was what Wendy Granville was looking for when she and her family moved from Anacortes to Kettle Falls last year. But when it came to finding a job, Granville returned to what she knows---antiques. She recently opened A Kick in the Attic Antiques, located at 235 E. 3rd Kettle Falls. The store features antiques (of course), vintage items and consignment. Many of the goods Granville brought with her from the antique mall she owned and operated in Anacortes for 17 years named Days Gone By.
Itâs safe to say, this lady knows âgreat junkâ when she sees it.
