Harvest Dinner supports Colville Food Bank

September 19, 2014

The annual dinner and auction to raise money for the Colville Volunteer Food and Resource Center (CFRC) is back for its seventh year.
This year’s gala will be held Saturday, Sept. 20 starting at 4:30 p.m. at the Stevens County Ag. Trade Cen¬ter on the Northeast Washington Fairgrounds.
The event features over 100 high-quality items for auction and a dinner prepared by retired Disneyland Executive Chef Tony Bodner. The best part, though, is that underneath a fun, casual evening is the underlying philanthropy that goes back into the community.

Chewelah wins a thriller

Cougs on the road at Lakeside

For the second straight week, Jenkins High played a thriller on the football field. But unlike the previous week when Chewelah dropped a heartbreaker to Priest River to open the season, the Cougars downed Warden, 24-21.
Over the previous week, head coach Jim Fisk and his staff worked to correct the mistakes Chewelah made in that opener against Priest River. The hard work paid off with an improved defense and a solid passing game.

Republic back on track

September 16, 2014

After turnovers and penalties cost Republic High an opening season win at home over Entiat, the Tigers got back on track last Friday at Almira-Coulee/Hartline with a workmanlike and wild 64-32 win.
RHS pretty much ran ACH (0-2) into the ground, scoring 42 points in the third and fourth quarters to break open a close game.
Angelo Rivera rushed for 255 yards on 16 carries and scored four touchdowns for Republic in Coulee City. Quarterback Aaron Fritts added a pair of passing touchdowns and two TDs on the ground.
