"I'd love to run the Iditarod someday"

February 20, 2014

Most 10-year-olds aren’t thinking about hooking up a team of sled dogs and hopping
on the back end of a sled for a ride through the snow-covered woods in the dead of a Northwest winter. Usually, it’s video games or playing some sport that involves the use of a ball.
Lane Esvelt isn’t any 10-year-old.
Sure, Lane likes playing football and baseball. He shoots trap. But what the fifth-grader at Kettle Falls Middle School really gets excited about is hanging
with and running his dogs.
Mushing.
No, that’s not a bowl of oatmeal in the morning.

Colville High (8-8, 3-5) dropped a pair of Great Northern League boy’s basketball
games last week.
The Indians battled East Valley (14-3, 7-2) on nearly even terms before a pair of late three-pointers by Tanner Jacobs keyed a 57-54 Knights’ win Friday night in Spokane.

superior firepower and speed took over and the visitors raced to a 71-58 win.

Matt Hubbard led Colville with 23 points.

Sherman’s wild march to the frozen Super Bowl

January 28, 2014

I will be the first to admit that I am not a big NFL fan. Mostly, that’s because I work the Statesman Sunday Sabbath and don’t see many games.
But I have always been a Seattle Seahawks’ fan and I’ve been a fan of a couple of the team’s key players—quarterback Russell Wilson and cornerback Richard Sherman.
Yes, Pete and the boys have put together a juggernaut full of interesting characters.
