The North Eastern Washington Humane Society is preparing for a June regular membership meeting. Always open to the public, these meetings are held every other month. NEWHS is short on members right now, and welcomes folks with a passion to serve the community, and seek humane treatment of animals. We have jobs for you, you can believe that!
Discussion of fund raisers, possible speaking engagements, property searches and wishful shelter planning, are the usual conversations at these meetings, but June might be a little different! The month of May started with a huge seizure of dogs from a property near Clayton. Fantastic media coverage made everyone aware of this case! Just weeks later, another seizure of 23 animals from a different Stevens County residence took place. So, the topic at June’s meeting might be what can be done differently in the future!

Debating whether it was wrong for President Trump to pull the United States out of the Paris climate accord negotiations is never ending. Both sides will find ample evidence to claim the accords are good or bad for America; however, the rhetoric can’t obfuscate our ongoing work to reduce greenhouse gases.
The focus needs to be on what is being done to reduce emissions globally and how our innovations and technology can be implemented across our planet.
For perspective, the U.S. Energy Information Administration reported in April that U.S. energy-related carbon dioxide emissions in 2016 were 1.7 percent below 2015 levels. These recent decreases are consistent with a decade-long trend in which CO2 releases dropped by 14 percent. More

Springdale wrestler signs with D-3 school…
Shallon Crossley is making up for lost time.
After wrestling for just two years at Mary Walker High School, the recently graduated resident of Springdale is continuing her career at Mac Murray College in Jacksonville, Illinois.
A basketball player by trade, Crossley decided to make the switch her junior year after coming off two minor knee surgeries. She discovered a knack and a passion for the sport of wrestling and is excited she gets to continue to do a sport she loves.
MacMurray College competes in NCAA Div. III and announced in 2016 that it would be bringing back its wrestling program – including a women’s team – after a ten-year gap. MacMurray was originally an all-female school, founded in 1845 by Methodist clergymen but has since become fully co-ed with an enrollment of 570 students.
Chewelah’s AA American Legion Baseball team had another successful week, winning four of six games over the course of six days. The Cougars swept a doubleheader against Colville, 12-5 and 7-5, and then they won single games over Moses Lake 5-2 and Gonzaga Prep 8-0. However, they were shut out by Coeur d’Alene 14-0 and edged by Mt. Spokane 9-8. Going into this week’s games, Chewelah was 7-4 overall.
“We’re still hitting the ball really solid, and our defense in steadily improving,” said Coach Sawyer Bardwell. “We’re also getting in more reps for our younger players, which is improving our depth.”
