Good to go with two new lungs Former Davenport Schools Supt. Dave Iverson is recovering nicely, according to family reports, from a double lung transplant earlier this month at the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle. According to entries posted by his wife Sharon on, Iverson’s Sept. 1 surgery took five hours and “everything went as planned.” Other family members, including daughters Becky Guhlke and Taunya Van Pevenage, have made the trip to see him in the hospital and at a nearby apartment to which he was released last Saturday. From there, he’ll continue therapy and rehabilitation over the next two to three months,

Iverson’s first unassisted breaths with his two new lungs is captured in this photo.

It wasn’t long after the surgery that Iverson was sitting up in his hospital bed with a laptop, using the Internet to keep in touch with personnel in the Keller School District, where he has been superintendent for several years. Students and staff also have been following his progress electronically. He was out of bed as well, walking the halls at the UW center, one of three in the western U.S. that perform the transplant procedure. Family members wrote on the website of their gratefulness for the outpouring of support, including fundraising events ahead of the operation, in several communities, including Davenport, Wilbur and Odessa, where Dave was raised and See LUNGS, page 3

By MARK SMITH Of the Times Lincoln County officials continue to consider just what their involvement should be in the Creston industrial site that once seemed promising as a biodiesel manufacturing plant. The site belongs to the Public Development Authority, which owes “quite a bit of money” to the state’s Community Economic Revitalization Board (CERB), which recently agreed to allow the site to be considered as “surplus.” That could open the door for Lincoln County to submit a bid, county commissioner Ted Hopkins explained Monday, but only “if we can get a guaranteed minimum bid from a private entity that would purchase it from us.” County government is interested in having the plant remain active because of the prospect of a $600,000 grant that would pay for construction of railroad siding to the site. The county has until Jan. 21, 2011, to have a new tenant in place and remain eligible for that outside funding. Two private firms have expressed interest in the location and the possibility of having access to railroad service from it. If the property goes to bid, other public entities would be given opportunity first, Hopkins explained. If the county bid successfully, it also may have to offer it to public entities before taking bids from

private interests. “The idea is to get it into private ownership as soon as possible and collect the tax revenue that would come from it,” Hopkins said. ■ Meanwhile, commission chair Scott Hutsell noted that work continues on getting an emergency response center in Sprague off the drawing board. Despite U.S. Sen. Patty Murray’s announcement some months ago that a grant had been awarded, its administration fell to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and state officials, which had additional requirements for local officials to meet. Conversations between them and Sprague Fire Department officials are continuing and Margie Hall, Lincoln County Economic Development Council (EDC) executive director, also is involved. ■ Public Works director Rick Becker told the commissioners that some $48 million will be required to complete maintenance work on the county’s road system over the next 10 years. On a project list required by the state Department of Transportation, Becker said he placed paving of Hawk Creek Road “at the top, because putting it there could improve its potential for getting the funds we need to do it.” The county plans to paint striping on the “well traveled roads as the See COUNTY, page 3

Les Wilcox, Patt Meyer will lead Saturday’s parade They’ve been picked for honor by Harrington Lions Club By MARK SMITH Of the Times HARRINGTON – Les Wilcox and Patt Meyer, two longtime Harrington enthusiasts, have been selected by the local Lions Club as co-grand marshals of this Saturday’s Fall Festival parade. Lions Club spokesman Randy Oestreich says both were selected because of “their dedication to the community over several decades.” They’ll ride in a 1957 Chevrolet convertible provided by Jamie Floyd. It’s the second year for the honor (last year’s inaugural recipient of a plaque and parade appearance was Bill Floyd) and, Oestreich insisted, “we’re way past due on this.” Les Wilcox “I’ve been in the parade as a

driver of the float and fire truck,” recalled Wilcox. “Now I’ll get the chance to wave.” Describing himself as a “member at-large” of the Lions Club, Les says he’s now “retired to chase my grandkids – and doctors – and enjoy life – and hunt.” He also spent more than 40 years as an active member of the Harrington Fire Department. Coming to Harrington in 1952, he first encountered it as a “thriving community” that since has “lost people as the little farms were gobbled up by the big ones. It was and is a wonderful community in which to raise kids.” With his wife, the former Donna Smith, a Davenport High School graduate whose parents lived in the Harrington area, he has raised four children: Jim (now married to

Harrington’s 65th Fall Festival Saturday brings the 65th annual Harrington Fall Festival, sponsored by the local Lions Club. Activities begin with an 11 a.m. parade on Third Street through the downtown core, with classic cars and Jeeps invited to join in. Signup is scheduled at 10:15 a.m. The parade will be followed by a noon barbecue beef lunch in the city park across from the school. The park will be the scene for afternoon games and bingo from 1 and 3:30 p.m., when the Lions will announce prize winners. Alumni of Harrington schools will gather at their alma mater for their annual banquet beginning at 6:30 p.m.

His children produced 10 grandchildren – and he now enjoys two great-grandchildren as well. He holds his high school diploma from Potlatch, Idaho, where he worked for Potlatch Forest, Inc., and local farmers after serving in the U.S. Army from 1953 to 1956. “I was one of a group of 10 that got sent to Europe rather than Korea,” he recalled. In 1958, he went to work for McCall Farm Chemical, later Shell Oil Co., Herman T. Wilson, Inc., Cominco, Inc., Cominco Limited, and now better known as Western Farm Service that recently took the Crop Production Services moniker. With a contractor’s help, “I built the Harrington plant,” he said. His official retirement was in 1999, but his involvement with the Lions Club, American Legion, fire department and EMT/ambulance crew, 4-H and Future Farmers of America continued. He was an FFA advisor for about 10 years and a leader of the Silver Steers 4-H Club. He also served a stint on the Lincoln County Fair Advisory Board. Rodeo is also a passion, having been part of the Washington Barrel

These Harrington and Odessa’s FFA career development events participants enjoyed their time at the Spokane County Interstate Fair earlier this month: Hannah Schmitt, Elana Hernandez, advisor Erica Whitmore, Lexie Hirst and Ellie Hedgren.

Harrington teams with Odessa FFA to excel at Davenport fair

Working together under advisor Erica Whitmore, FFA members from Harrington and Odessa showed their dedication and creativity at last month’s Lincoln County Fair. On Thursday of the fair, Jacob DeWulf was awarded grand champion FFA market swine, while Ryan Greenwalt received first blue in his market class on his steer and Lacey Hirst got purple on her beef, allowing her to return for the overall market judging selection, where she earned the reserve grand champion overall market beef in the barn. Her sister Lexie took home a blue, as did Daniel Mann. Outside the livestock barns, FFA members received a blue and later were awarded a commissioners award for their FFA display, “Growing Gold and Building Blue,” in the Grange building. It was designed and constructed by Mackenze Braun, Amanda Hardt, Jessie Whittaker, Elena Hernandez and Mrs. Whitmore. Also in the Grange building, trifold posters were displayed from the seniors’ International Agriculture project (Rylee Paris, Melissa Greenwalt, Jennifer Walter and Mallarie Bramer) receiving blue and red ribbons. Amanda Hardt entered her memories of the 2009-10 FFA activities with a colorful display of pictures (red ribbon), Matt McMillan and Connie designed a wooden silhouette of this year’s fair theme (blue ribbon), Jared King and Koralynne Kuch’s FFA Flames sign took a blue, and Kendall Todd, Lacey Nelson and Melanie Baer got blue for their “Where would you be without

John soennichsen

agriculture” poster. In the vegetable division Amanda Hardt received three blues on her straight zucchini, round zucchini and straight yellow squash; these coordinated with her vegetable SAE she worked on all summer in the greenhouse and while working for Andy’s Produce on Wednesdays. Another highlight was having two of Washington’s FFA officers visit and assist during the livestock showing: Paige Druffel, president; and Danyelle Cavadini, sentinel. On Friday it was back into the show ring for the FFA and 4-Her’s. Jacob DeWulf took part in fitting and showing, again getting grand champion for the freshman/sophomore FFA division earning him a spot in the round robin on Saturday. Ryan Greenwalt’s showmanship skills have improved so much he got a blue, Lexie Hirst won grand champion beef fitting and showing, Lacey was reserve grand champion and Daniel Mann picked up a blue. On Saturday during Round Robin, Lexie and Jacob took part in showing five different species (hogs, sheep, large goats, horses and beef). They are scored on a 1-10 scale at each station, allowed to show for five minutes, and are responsible for learning how to show the species from other fair participants. Lexie was named top overall showman for the FFA freshman/ sophomore category and Peter Rustameyer, a Sprague resident who attends and participates in Davenport’s FFA chapter, was the

junior/senior winner. FFA members also took part in the livestock judging contest organized by Lincoln County 4-H Extension. Team 1 (Lacey Hirst, Lexie Hirst, Jared King, Daniel Mann and Justin Hunt) took home the high honors, while Team 2 (Amanda Hardt, Jacob DeWulf, Jessie Whittaker and Ryan Greenwalt) was second. Lacey was the top livestock judge, accumulating the most points. Mrs. Whitmore expressed appreciation to parents, chaperones, fair superintendents, fair board members, volunteers and livestock supporters and buyers.

The commissioners also learned of changes to the Solid Waste Advisory Committee (SWAC) by-laws that will allow proxy voting for members who miss a meeting. The county’s Solid Waste Plan recently received approval from the Town of Reardan and, on Wednesday night, the Davenport City Council. Decisions from Sprague and Almira are yet to be communicated to the county. ■ The commissioners also sanctioned a six-month leave of absence for former sheriff’s deputy Ben Costigan, who has started a new job as a Gresham, Ore., police officer. “Civil Service rules allow him to return here should money become

available,” explained sheriff Wade Magers. “That could be extended another six months by the Civil Service Commission.” Costigan’s stated reason for leaving Lincoln County was the uncertainty of keeping his position in the wake of additional budget cuts that are expected by the start of next year.

They want to reduce the risk of wildfires in the counties, along with the harmful smoke that wildfires produce. Outdoor residential burning, illegal in most parts of Washington, is a leading cause of wildfire ignitions across the state. Wildfires destroy property, harm the environment and endanger people.

Every Washington family needs to connect with a farmer By JUDY OLSON Guest State Executive Director Washington Farm Service Agency Perspective Throughout Washington, farmers’ markets overflow with produce this time of year. Trains, trucks and barges haul grains from Eastern Washington to Westside ports. Harvest flurry has started in the state’s billion dollar apple industry. Throughout the state, farms and ranches are producing food, creating jobs, positively impacting our nation’s trade balance and providing wildlife habitat and scenery. This is a good time to reflect on Washington’s farmers and ranchers and how we benefit from their efforts. One of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s priorities is an initiative called “Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food.” This is an effort to create new economic opportunities for farmers and ranchers by better connecting consumers with local producers. It is also the start of a national conversation about the importance of understanding where

Does voteby-mail cause voter apathy?

By CHRIS THOMAS Washington News Service Washington’s primary elections take place in mid-August, during the dog days of summer, which may or may not account for last month’s low overall turnout. The ballot totals by county range from highs of more than 60 percent in Columbia, Lincoln, San Juan and Wahkiakum counties, to lows of 24 to 26 percent in King, Pierce, Snohomish and Stevens counties. The statewide average is about 30 percent, which means more than two-thirds of registered voters did not mail in their ballots. Allison Feher, president of the League of Women Voters of Seattle, says some believe changing the primary date from September to August has had a negative effect on voting. “A lot of people are busy; they’re away on vacation. I don’t know that moving it up made it better for people. It certainly has made it more challenging for us, in terms of getting the information together, getting in contact with people, organizing events,” she commented. The state Elections Division says the primary date was moved in 2007 to ensure that military and overseas voters got their ballots on time. Mail-in ballots are supposed to be more convenient and less expensive for counties than having polling places, Feher said, adding that they also give people more time to study the issues – if they remember to do so. “When you have the polling places, there’s a lot of stuff going on that reminds people to get out and vote. But with the all-vote-by-mail process, the deadline can get a little fuzzier and people can miss it. They say, ‘Let’s just toss it in the “I’ll get to that later” pile,’ and then they never do.” All Washington voters have had the option of voting by absentee ballot since 1993, but only in the past five years have most counties decided to conduct all elections by mail. Pierce County is the only one that still maintains polling places – and it also had the lowest voter turnout last month, at just under 24 percent. • Send your letter to the Times, P.O.

your food comes from and how it gets to your plate. The truth is that not every family needs a lawyer or an accountant – but every family needs a farmer. And today, there is too much distance between average Americans and their farmer. Here in Washington, we are blessed with agricultural abundance and diversity. Washington is second only to California in the number of agricultural products produced – more than 230. We are the No. 1 producer of a dozen different crops. We produce more than half the nation’s apples. All of this bounty grows on more than 39,000 farms in Washington. They range in size from just a few acres of crops grown for farmers’ markets to thousands of acres of wheat raised for export. Ninety percent of the state’s farms are considered small farms, even most Eastern Washington farms. A small farm is classified as having less than $250,000 in annual sales. Even small farms have equipment, labor or other

input expenses that run in the tens and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Many of Washington’s farms are family-owned. Types of crops grown and the amount grown depend on climate, productivity of the land, proximity to markets and market demand, farmers’ experience and more. Washington is a leader in the local food movement. The state benefits from having productive farmland and a temperate climate near large population centers. Farmers are able to grow high value fruits and vegetables, which have a short shelf life, and quickly deliver these products to a large market. In rural Eastern Washington, where land is less expensive but major markets are farther away and transportation costs higher, many farmers raise fruits and vegetables on larger acreages than in the western portion of the state. Grain farms and livestock operations can easily be 1,000 acres or more. Many crops are sold nationally and internationally, as well as locally. These

farms provide local jobs that include everything from producing packaging materials to harvesting, marketing and transporting crops. They also add to our nation’s trade balance with other nations. In 2008, Washington exported more than $6.5 billion worth of food and agricultural products. Washington is the third largest exporting state of food or agricultural products in the U.S. About one-third of Washington’s agricultural output is shipped overseas, Washington’s farms, both big and small, contribute to local economies and the overall state economy. Farms provide benefits beyond food on our plates and jobs to support families and communities. They also supply habitat for wildlife and give us open spaces and beautiful landscapes. Cropland, including pastureland, encompasses about 8.7 million acres throughout Washington. Take a few moments this week to visit a farmers’ market, a county fair or connect in some way with Washington’s farms and the farmers and ranchers who make it all possible.

1910: High school paper pleases 10 YEARS AGO (2000) From the Davenport Times KXLY TV’s “Sports Extra” show featured a live broadcast from the Davenport Community Youth Center at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds after the Davenport football game against Almira/Coulee-Hartline. Morgan Street was about to become a mess, but after new sidewalks and curbs were installed over the next few weeks between Eighth and Fourth Streets, a more pleasant downtown aesthetic was expected. On its second attempt, the Davenport High School modernization bond appeared to be passing, according to unofficial returns released by the Lincoln County Auditor’s Office Harrington planned its 55th annual Fall Festival, sponsored by the local Lions Club, along with related events in the community. Niels Peterson, a teacher at Harrington High School and instrumental force in the Lincoln County Housing Coalition, joined the Harrington City Council. 25 YEARS AGO (1985) From the Davenport Times Ninety-eight Davenport Grade School students cast their first ballots in a county election. The Davenport Gorillas overcame the superstition of “Friday, the 13th” and the stigma of holding a record 17-game loss from the past three football seasons by downing the Brewster Bears 21-6. Davenport’s Nikki Ensor received the highest award presented by

the state fair directors at county fairs: the Washington State Fair Commission Award Rosette. Elizabeth Mangis, 101, a Lincoln Nursing Home resident, received the “Best of Show” award in the Lincoln Nursing Home Arts and Crafts division at the county fair. Lincoln County auditor Larry Lindbloom, Shelly Telecky of the Auditor’s Office, and two Davenport citizens met with the goal of analyzing the elections system and looking for ways to improve it. 50 YEARS AGO (1960) From the Davenport Times Mr. and Mrs. Fred W. Magin were honored guests in an open house ceremony on their golden wedding day. Opening the season in what might have been the year’s big game, the Davenport High School football team staged a third quarter rally to beat the Tigers at Odessa by a 13-7 score. Diane Reinbold, a student nurse at Pacific Lutheran University, was capped among a class of 26. Miss Davenport of 1960, Sandi King, and her court were guests at the Davenport Chamber of Commerce luncheon and reported on honors won by the Davenport community float during 1960. 75 YEARS AGO (1935) From the Davenport Times-Tribune Wheat neared the dollar mark on the local market, and this week’s prices were the highest offered since

1930, Davenport grain men say. Rumors of war in Ethiopia and a general shortage of wheat throughout the world were given as the reasons. There was still a considerable amount of wheat coming in and this year’s crop promised to be one of the largest in history. John Tubbs of Davenport won first place in the daily northwest championship bucking contest at the Pendleton Roundup, and went into the northwest championship finals, but drew a poor horse and failed to place. Hugh McAdams also made the finals but didn’t place. Community Grange was calling for bids for the construction of the new hall on land alongside of State Road No. 22 north of Davenport. 100 YEARS AGO (1910) From the Davenport Tribune and the Lincoln County Times A.W. Turner, for years one of Davenport’s leading businessmen and a former Lincoln County auditor, exchanged his large timothy farm at Fruitland, where he had been residing for the past year, for the brick hotel at Cheney. The hotel was leased and Mr. Turner and family were to make their home in Spokane. There are few, if any photographic studios in the northwest that compare with the fine new structure designed and erected under the direction of E.H. Paige, Davenport’s noted artist. He has won many medals in competition with the best artists of the west. He received the “Salon” award at the Photographers’ Association of the Pacific Northwest convention held in 1907 at Seattle. He also received a beautiful gold medal award for his photographic display at the AlaskaYukon-Pacific exposition, a part of the Lincoln County and educational exhibits. He stood at the head of his profession in Washington. We are pleased to note that the students of the high school were again to edit “The Megaphone.” Our schools are one of the chief things which Davenport has to be proud of, and a paper written by the students and sent to all the other schools throughout the state was one of the best advertisements the town had. There was a great benefit to the students in having a publication of their own. It served as a means of stimulating school activities and literary ability.

Two straight Bulldog weeks

O-H Titans make meat of Curlew Curlew got ground up by the Odessa-Harrington Titans in the annual Deutschesfest “Sausage Bowl” last Friday night in Odessa. Nick Sperline scored three Titan touchdowns on runs of between 56 and 83 yards. Jake Tanke took a pass from Jared King into the end zone in the first quarter and scored O-H’s final TD on a 45-yard interception return in the third. The game was called in the third on account of the 45-point rule. The Titans built a 28-0 lead in the first quarter on the way to a 78-28 victory. King also tossed a 74-yarder to Stetson Sanford for the Titans’ third score. Brett Larmer put the ball in from one yard out to open O-H’s second quarter scoring. “We executed well, blocked well, tackled well – did well what we needed to do,” head coach Bruce Todd commented afterwards. “Our kids saw lots of playing time and it gave us an opportunity to move some people around in a game situation, something we’re unable to do in a practice setting.” Todd said that Curlew, dominated by juniors and seniors, still “had a difficult time stopping our running and passing game. Their offense had a difficult time getting anything going.” The Titans will host Almira/Coulee-Hartline in a 3 p.m. game this Friday in Harrington, part of that community’s annual Fall Festival weekend.

Licking their wounds from Colfax, Gorillas will line up against ‘hungry’ Kettle Falls

These big guys from Kettle Falls weren’t all that much of a threat for Reardan’s Chace Bell (16), who manages to turn every football game in which he plays into an opportunity to stay in training for spring track season.

Indians put leash on Kettle Falls, will entertain Kittitas on Friday By MARK SMITH Of the Times REARDAN – It was a great opening series for Reardan last Friday with Kettle Falls in town – and it only got better from there. When the night was done, the Indians had secured a 27-6 victory, its second of the season. On fourth down and goal with 2:58 left in the first quarter, Johnny Kieffer ran the ball into the end zone and Chace Bell followed with a conversion run to give the Indians an 8-0 advantage. After recovering a Bulldog fumble, Reardan expanded the spread to 14-0 when Bell took the ball in from the 3 with just under 20 seconds left in the period. Reardan head coach Eric Nikkola, while describing Kettle Falls as “a much tougher opponent, big and very physical,” indicated his pleasure over how the Indians responded with a

team effort. “We were able to drive down the field and score with very few mistakes and no penalties” in the opening series, he said. “The line seemed to be opening up holes and our running backs usually got positive yardage.” Noting the improvement he saw since the previous week, he believes early mistakes won’t be repeated. “But what really helps is that all four of my running backs are hitting the holes and gaining a lot of yards.

Gorillas finally beat W-C in 5 games It took five hard-fought games Girls’ for Davenport to manage a 3-2 Volleyball match win over Wilbur-Creston on Tuesday night in the Gorilla gym. The Wildcats took the first and third games 25-23 and 25-19, respectively, but Davenport came back in the second and fourth games 25-20 and 25-16, to force the fifth, which the lady Gorillas took by a 15-10 margin. Gorilla coach Pete Schweiger said his team made a lot of passing and hitting errors, “but hung in there

and pulled out the win.” The Gorillas had it easier last Thursday in Odessa, sweeping the Odessa-Harrington Titans in three games. “For us it was not a good match at all,” Titan coach Tammy Cronrath commented. “All night we struggled with ball control and of course, if you cannot control the volleyball you are toast.” Cronrath said her team picked up a little momentum in the second game, but made unforced errors and all in

lie (Eldred),” he added. “All four are taking care of the ball and running real hard.” A Reardan fumble with about 10 minutes left until halftime gave Kettle Falls the setup for its only touchdown, but a sack prevented the Bulldogs from adding any extra points. In perhaps the night’s most spectacular play with a little more than 10 seconds to go in the second period, quarterback Bell whipped a 27-yard pass to senior running back Clancy Kuykendall waiting in the end zone and, with Knezovich’s successful kick, the score increased again – to 21-6. In the third quarter, a one-yard run from Kieffer, whose personal production of 80 rushing yards equaled that from all of the Bulldogs, completed the Indians’ scoring for the night. Defensively, Nikkola said he saw “a big improvement. I am sending fresh linemen in almost every series and this has made a big difference in the line surge at the end of the game,” he explained. “So far we have been able to control the line of scrimmage. If we continue to improve in that regard, we are going to give Colfax a ball game in a couple weeks.” But Reardan will have to improve even more this week, Nikkola said, with Kittitas due to visit Joe Johnson Field. “They have a huge line both offensively and defensively.

Davenport Gorillas ATHLETE of the WEEK Lauren Erickson



“Keep the Pride in the Tribe...Support Indian Athletics!” 509-796-2601 or 509-796-2655

Davenport returns to Hering Field on Friday night to face a hungry Kettle Falls team that has yet to win this season. The Gorillas (1-1) are licking their wounds after a 62-21 thrashing last week at the hands of Colfax, which Davenport head coach Craig McIntyre described as “very impressive. They outplayed us in every aspect of the game. There’s a reason they’re ranked No. 1 – they’re that good.” It wasn’t that the Gorillas were that bad; they did match their production of 21 points in the previous week’s victory at home over Lake Roosevelt. But a fumble on the opening kickoff in Colfax didn’t help, and neither did three Colfax interceptions of passes from Davenport sophomore quarterback Derik Oliver. “We just weren’t able to overcome that fumble on the kickoff,” McIntyre said. “We lost to a much better team. We didn’t show up ready to play, we weren’t ready to compete and it showed. We were intimidated by the Bulldogs from the opening kick.” For the Gorillas, senior Justin Piper scored two touchdowns and three extra points, the third coming in the fourth quarter after sophomore Warrin Johnson returned a Bulldog kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown. McIntyre was pleased that he had the chance to play all of his athletes in the game and was impressed that “the younger guys never gave up.” The coach pointed to outstanding performances from center Ian Bouchard, who “played very hard and fought hard for four quarters,” on offense, as well as that from junior defensive tackle Dylan Graedel and freshman defensive back Max Mielke. Unfortunately, senior Ronnie Wilkie injured his back and shoulders

during the game – but he was the only major casualty for the Gorillas. McIntyre thinks the other Bulldogs (Kettle Falls), who lost last Friday to Reardan 27-6, “will be a great challenge. They’ll be hungry to get a win.” He expects numbers and size to be factors, as Kettle Falls has about 50 players on its roster, while the Gorillas have 28, and “on film, they look a lot bigger than us – but every team is bigger than us! – and they were an ‘A’ school.” His mission for Davenport: “It’s important for us to protect our home field.” Davenport 0 14 0 7 – 21 Colfax 35 0 13 14 – 62 Col – Berarducci 30 pass from Teade (McNannay kick).

Parking around football field tighter due to construction Fans of Davenport football are advised that parking around Hering Field will be tighter than usual this season because of the elementarymiddle school construction project now in progress. Home game attendees are encouraged to park near the high school and walk to the field, Supt. Jim Kowalkowski said. Parking spots are available near the tennis courts and around the campus. There won’t be an entry gate at the north end of the grade school this year. Instead, the “main gate” has shifted to the east side of the field, with other entry points on the south and west sides. Parents with young children at the

game should be aware that the “big toy” playground apparatus has been removed, Kowalkowski continued, asking that parents make sure their children are supervised. “The school district appreciates the patience and cooperation of dedicated Gorilla fans during the construction period,” he concluded.

“It has been a long time since we’ve had brothers starting for our football team,” reports head football coach Eric Nikkola. “Wyatt, a senior offensive tackle and middle linebacker, and Waylen, a junior offensive guard and defensive end, both are two-way starters and are involved in almost every special team. Very seldom do they leave the field. Their work ethic and toughness set them apart from most linemen. If you were to measure them, they are both undersized linemen, but if you measure their heart and desire you will find champions.” Their parents are Jeremy and Becky Anderson.

also need to improve on our number of penalties. We seemed to get a little lazy in the second half and were not getting our bodies in the correct position. These mistakes need to be eliminated soon. We need to be able to play four solid quarters with limited mistakes and penalties.” Despite that bit of necessary tweaking, the coach said he is “really enjoying this group of young men. They have bought in to the team concept. No one person is larger than the team and they know that if they work together we are going to be successful. They realize that 11 working together is better than one or two superstars.”

all had a poor night. “There is a lot of ability on the O-H squad and with continued work we will play up to our potential,” she added. The Titans will play Thursday at Springdale and have a bye for Harrington’s Fall Festival. Davenport (7-3) also competed at last weekend’s Okanogan Tournament, returning with a 1-3 record. The lady Gorillas beat Ephrata after losing to Zillah and Okanogan in earlier pool play. In their final match, Brewster pulled out a close match win, with spreads of three and two points in the two games played.

REARDAN Indians – Northwest Volleyball Christian required four games to get the match win over Reardan last Saturday. The Indians will play Davenport and Lind-Ritzville/Sprague this Saturday in the Gorilla gym, site of the first league doubleheader event for all of the teams. “As I had predicted, our match against NWC was tough,” Reardan head coach Brittney Kubik commented. “The first game we came out ready to play and took NWC by surprise. We did every element of the game well, and it showed.” But in the second game, instead of coming out with the momentum from the first game, she said her players let NWC take control. “We let them have too big of a run on us in the beginning of the game and we could never come back from it,” she recalled. “The same thing happened to us in the third game. We let them make runs of three or four points and we never made any big runs to beat them.” In the fourth game, the Indians took control and “played our game, stopping NWC from getting any runs on us,” she continued. “We handed the fifth game over to NWC. We made too many errors and any good team would have taken advantage of them, just as NWC had.” Kubik said the loss was “disappointing, especially since it was our first league game. NWC had one big advantage over us: This was their 10th or 11th match of the season and only our fourth. We just haven’t had as much playing time to smooth out our rough edges as they have.” But, she added, Reardan’s schedule from this week on will be packed full of matches, and she expects the Indians “will be ready for” NWC “when we meet up with them again.” As for this weekend, Kubik said she expects the Reardan vs. L-R/S match to be “fun, especially since we will be playing against my alma mater. This week we have been focusing on stopping our opponents

from scoring more than three points and pushing points to make our own runs. Also, we’ve been working on becoming smarter hitters by knowing where the block is at and hitting around it. If we do these three things, we should compete very well against Davenport and L-R/S.” The lady Indians also hosted a

match with Rogers of Spokane on Wednesday afternoon. Sept. 18 Northwest Christian def. Reardan 1625, 25-18, 25-21, 15-8. Kills: Kelsey Moos 12, Marrisa Dormaier 10, Lauren Schulz 10, Liz Flowers 9.

Obituary Claire B. Bell Claire B. Bell, 81, mother of Davenport city maintenance foreman Fred Bell, died Sept. 17. She was a resident of Manawa, Wis. Born Nov. 1, 1928, in Milford, Mass., to George and Edith Bullard, she joined the Navy in 1950. She married Fredrick Harold Bell in 1951 and had four children, 11 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. Family members recall how she often described her children as one of her greatest accomplishments of her lifetime and how proud she was of her family. She traveled the world as a Navy wife, worked as a nurse, served as a school board member and was part of the Lions Club organization.

New data shows water supply decline OTHELLO – Taking their first peek at a sophisticated database being developed to create the most detailed groundwater hydrologic model of the Columbia Basin, members of the Columbia Basin Ground Water Management Area (GWMA) administrative board learned that preliminary findings confirm the aquifer system’s dramatic decline. “We are beginning to see the development of a remarkable tool, built on the most comprehensive geologic and ground water data base ever accumulated for the Columbia Basin,” commented Paul Stoker, GWMA’s executive director. “This summer, we tested our information in meetings with literally hundreds of ground water users, well owners, municipalities and other stakeholders.” Very early data analysis indicates well owner concerns about the continuing diminishment of well pumping capacity are well founded. In the presentations, hydrogeologist Dr. Kevin Lindsey, GSI Water Solutions, Inc. (GSI), explained the extent of geologic units underlying the Columbia Basin, and what scientists are learning about the amount of groundwater that may have been stored in this aquifer system prior to development, and potentially how much water remains. “Our preliminary analysis suggests there were probably about 50 to 60 million acre-feet of water stored in the useable parts of the aquifer system prior to the advent of deep well irrigation in the 1960s. Assuming an annual withdrawal of approximately 1 million acre feet since that time,

it’s likely that a large portion of the useable aquifer system has already been withdrawn, with less than 20 to 25 percent remaining.” Dennis Bly, Lincoln County Commissioner and Board member added, “Given the significant amount being withdrawn annually, and the minimal amount of natural or river water recharge entering the aquifer, it’s clear that we’re facing a forthcoming water quantity crisis that will no doubt have significant long-term ramifications for the future of the Columbia Basin. This makes it all the more critical to press forward with the Passive Rehydration Feasibility Project to further define potential aquifer storage options.” In previous meetings, Lindsey and other GWMA scientists have explained how the groundwater chemistry data has shown how the GWMA’s aquifers were filled. Basically, ice age floods deposited ice across the Columbia Basin, and as it melted and receded, water filled and saturated the interflow zones of the basalt layers 10,000 to 50,000 years ago. John Porcello, GSI hydrologist and modeler, provided an overview of how the various mapped geologic layers and structures including folds, faults and dikes can act as barriers and pathways, and create groundwater sub-basins, that dictate groundwater volume and flow. Porcello explained that the model would be calibrated and tested to ensure it portrays an accurate picture of the groundwater system so that GWMA can answer two big ques-

Receding water Since the 1960s, wells in the GWMA have withdrawn about 1 million acre feet of water annually from the useable aquifer system, which GWMA scientists estimate contained between 50 to 60 million acre feet of available water before pumping began. Because there is little recharge to the system, at the current rate of withdrawal the useable aquifer could be depleted within the next 10 to 20 years.

tions: First, what is the water budget for these four counties? Secondly, what does this mean for the future? The latter question is especially important in light of Lindsey’s description of possible remaining available pumping capacity. Pointing to a geologic cross section of the Columbia Basin, Porcello explained that, “Subsurface stratigraphic mapping reveals that the basalt layers that host aquifers generally dip from the uplands in the north and northeast towards the south and southwest across the Columbia Plateau. Groundwater elevation data suggest that groundwater flows to the lowest topographic point of the Columbia River. The Frenchman Hills and Saddle Mountain shows the processes of folding and faulting that have disrupted the interflow zones and thereby apparently created separate groundwater sub-basins on each side of these structures. In

fact, the compartmentalized nature of these basalt layers is thought to greatly limit the rate of discharge to the river, to the extent that it may be immeasurable.” An example of how these barriers can divide groundwater sub-basins was provided in a presentation by Patrick Royer, GWMA spatial analyst, on the Frenchman Hills Fault, a groundwater sub-basin boundary that separates the Quincy Valley from the Royal Slope area. The two adjacent irrigated farming areas are divided by Frenchman Hills, a fold and fault structure that disrupts groundwater flow and recharge, resulting in two separate groundwater sub-basins on either side of the Frenchman Hills fault. Stoker pointed out that the fault analysis “is a prime example of how the model is being built and tested, through scientific hypotheses in this case, evaluating the effects of a geologic fault identified during

the GWMA stratigraphic mapping study on the groundwater system. Our previous mapping identified probable locations where faults, folds and feeder dikes exist, or are likely to exist. As we test and further identify and map these barriers, we will identify their effects on groundwater occurrence and aquifer connection, further refining our understanding of groundwater conditions and the presence of groundwater sub-basins.” Regarding the aquifer decline, Lincoln County Commissioner Scott Hutsell, also in attendance, added, “The evidence is overwhelming as we continue to see a race to the bottom and more wells going dry earlier in the year than normal. We’re past the time for concern – we need an action plan.” As for future model study developments, Stoker reminded the board that he “anticipates seeing a first run of the hydrologic model in the next 120 days.”

Sprague asks home-schoolers to participate in day programs

COURTS Continued from page 5

SPRAGUE – Sprague Elementary School has issued an invitation for home-schooled students of kindergarten through fifth grade age to participate in daily reading and math programs. Children in Sprague and Lamont are eligible to participate in the morning sessions. “We offer a K-5 direct-instruction reading program that has children placed according to their reading abilities,” explained teacher Bill Ressel. “We have had excellent results where many of our students have advanced to a reading level two grades above their current grade.” Parents of eligible students are invited to visit the program and may set up a time to come and observe with principal Pat Whipple or one of the office staff at (509) 257-2511. “We seek to form a partnership with our home-school community by working with parents to help them develop an educational program that is right for their children, Ressel said, adding that more information is posted at (follow the link to Sprague Elementary under the “School News” tab).

The court dismissed a claim by Alexsey Bodunov, of Tum Tum, that Luka and Irina Matveev, of Ford, owed $5,000 from a dissolved business partnership, as the claim seemed to be related to a previously judged matter in 2009 and also exceeded the court’s jurisdiction.

Opera House hosts scablands program HARRINGTON – Cheney author John Soennichsen, will explain how the unique features of the region’s coulees and scablands were created as he tells the story of J. Harlen Bretz at the Harrington Opera House on Friday night at 7. The scientific community once believed that the deep canyons and channels in the Inland Northwest were carved over long periods of time by glacial ice. In 1922 and 1923, University of Chicago geology professor Bretz and his graduate students began the work to scientifically explain his vision of a cataclysmic flood hundreds of feet deep, miles wide and moving at incredible speed. Soennichen’s presentation will include an explanation of how some of the topography of Lincoln County was created. Copies of his book, Bretz’s Flood: The Remarkable Story of a Rebel Geologist and the World’s Greatest Flood, will be available for sale. The slide show will take place in the upstairs auditorium. Tickets are $10 and light refreshments will be served at this fundraiser for the continuing rehabilitation of the facility. Before and after the Harrington Fall Festival Parade on Saturday morning, another local author, Har-

rington native Kathy (Thiemens) Walker, will share her children’s book, The Loving Family Tree. A portion of the book sales during her “Meet the Author” session will also be donated to the Society. In just three weeks, Bronn and

Katherine Journey will return to give a benefit concert on Thursday, Oct. 14. Advance tickets for events are available from the Harrington City Hall or call 253-4345 (weekdays) or 253-4719 or visit .
