The Springdale Chargers couldnâ€™t wait for their second football game this season.
The Chargers, who were routed by Tekoa-Oaksdale in their season opener two weeks ago, scored the first time they touched the ball, a 58-yard punt return by Shane Oâ€™Malley in a 48-0 win over Liberty (0-3) on Friday.
Unfortunately, Oâ€™Malleyâ€™s punt return was called back by a clipping penalty. It did not matter, since Mitch Peone legally scored a 45-yard run two plays later and the Chargers were in control the rest of the way.
William â€śLeeâ€ť Evans, 68, entered into rest on Saturday, Sept. 3, 2011.
He was born on July 10, 1943, to Rena and Roy LaVerne Evans in Eureka, Mont. He worked at Kaiser-Mead for 38 years.
When the kids were younger, we did a lot of camping on the Colville Reservation. As the kids got older, they became bowlers so we went to many tournaments in Seattle, Spokane, Tri-Cities or wherever. Lee would get the camper ready and away we went.
He bowled a 299 game in the Adult-Youth League.
He loved kids and they loved him.
Lee was a lifetime member of Deer Park Eagles Aerie No. 3564.
Arthur H. â€śArtâ€ť Kohlstedt died on 8 Sept. 2011, at the age of 83.53.
He was born on 26 Feb. 1928, to Marguerite â€śMargeâ€ť and Harold â€śKoleyâ€ť Kohlstedt, longtime residents of Colville.
Art loved life and was generous in spirit and a friend to all.
Faced with shrinking budgets, area school districts received some good news after the preliminary enrollment counts for the 2011-12 school year.
Each of the three school districts has enrollments slightly higher than what was budgeted for this school year.
Deer Park, which has been in the best budget situation the past couple of years, has a district enrollment of 2,423 full-time equivalent students in September. The count is 67 FTE students above what the school district budgeted for the upcoming school year.
School districts receive about $2,000 a year in state funding for each FTE.
