Cougars lose Wuesthoff

January 11, 2012

“It’s a tough way to start the league season,” said head coach Tom Skok.

Another day besides Father’s Day for rodeo

January 11, 2012

The annual Panorama (Colville) Pro-West Rodeo is changing its dates from Fa­ther’s Day weekend to Fri­day, June 22 and Saturday, June 23.
According to Panorama Ro­deo Association Board (PRA) member Wyatt Cowley, the change comes in part because this year is a leap year, caus­ing this year’s rodeo to share the same calendar space with events in Oregon and South­ern Washington and the Na­tional College Rodeo Finals in Casper, Wyoming.
That could mean a drop in the number of cowboys who might other­wise compete in Colville’s Pro-West Ro­deo stop.
