COLVILLEâ€”A first Wildfire Defense Fund-raising golf scramble tournament will be held at Dominion Meadows Golf Course in Colville on Sunday, Oct. 4. Shotgun start at 10 a.m.
The tournament will serve â€śas a place where folks can donate money to help support our local firefighters and their equipment needs,â€ť pointed out DM Pro, Andy Hite. â€śAll money raised will stay in our local area to help raise funds for firefighter protective gear.â€ť
CHEWELAHâ€”The Chewelah Artsâ€™ Guild needs the publicâ€™s help to â€śLight Up The Parkâ€ť on Oct. 24 with carved Jack Oâ€™ Lanterns.
â€śBring as many as you would like,â€ť encouraged spokeswoman, Sarah English.
To count toward Chewelah Arts Guildâ€™s Guinness World Record attempt of 2,015 pumpkins, the Jack Oâ€™ Lanterns need to have carved mouths, noses, eyes and yes, even eyebrows.
If that criteria isnâ€™t met, the pumpkins wonâ€™t be counted toward the record.
â€śBe as creative as you wish carving a design,â€ť English said. â€śPut a logo, character, name, etc. on the backside of the pumpkin if you wish.â€ť

Colville High turned in a solid showing at last Saturdayâ€™s season-opening Lakeland Invitational Volleyball Tournament (Rathdrum, Idaho).
Colville High won the Silver Division of the Lakeland Invite with a 22-25, 25-20, 15-8 win over Lewiston, Idaho.
Coeur dâ€™ Alene downed University to win the Gold finale, and host Lakeland beat Reardan to capture the Bronze title.
The Colville High Cross-Country team competed in this seasonâ€™s first invitational at Shadle Park High School in Spokane on Saturday. The invitational is the oldest in the state and always draws a large number of teams every year. Thirty-two high schools from around the Northwest were present this year and student athletes were divided into seven different heats.
Colville was represented by 19 athletes.

Chewelah (1-1) came into Fridayâ€™s non-league high school football game ready to replicate the success they had the previous week in Priest River. Unfortunately against the Warden Cougars, the JHS offense struggled to gain yardage and keep possession of the ball in a 24-16 loss.
Head coach Jim Fisk summed it up.
â€śDefensively, we played well enough to win, but offensively, we did not,â€ť Fisk said.
Three interceptions caused most of the damage, killing two scoring opportunities for Chewelah, and setting up a Warden touchdown.
Struggling at QB
After examining the origin of the Carpenter Road Fire, wild land fire investigators have determined that the fire was human-caused and not lightning-caused like originally believed.
According to a joint press release from United States Department of the Interior - Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Spokane Tribe of Indians, the fire was discovered on August 13 around 9:30 p.m. along the Westend-Wellpinit Road, just north of the Rock Church on the Spokane Indian Reservation.
Don't miss out on these games from around the region.

Offense a no
show in opener
After Cheney High (1-0) controlled the line of scrimmage all night against a mostly green and inexperienced Colville High (0-1) front last Friday night at Cheney in the season-opener for both schools, itâ€™s obvious the Indians have a lot of work to do.
Ty Graham, possibly the best running back Colville will see this fall, ran for 136 yards on 16 carries to lead Cheney to a 28-0 whitewash of the Indians.
Graham scored once on the ground and once when he was the recipient of a weird bounce after a short Colville punt
