Recently, one of the largest employers about 90 minutes north of Spokane in Colville had to lay off more than 20 employees due to an embezzlement case that severely hurt the small town’s economy. The timber and construction industries have already hurt Colville in recent years, and this made things worse.
But, as the cliché goes, when one door closes another one opens. That may be the case with the people of Colville.

This veteran-owned business stood the test of time for more than 65 years, staying competitive despite a drop in the construction industry and an uncertain business environment.
When you think of loyalty, trust, and excellent service, what companies come to mind? One that measures up to these three is Carr Sales, located at 919 W. 1st Avenue. (more…)
By now, you’ve heard about Boeing’s big win last week. The airplane maker won a $35 billion – that’s billion – contract with the United States Air Force to build the next generation of Air Refueling Tankers – the KC-46A. Boeing beat the European Aeronautic Defense and Space Company (EADS) for the contract.
One of the two plants where workers will build the tankers is in Everett, Wash. (the other is in Wichita, Kan.) That means money and jobs will stay in state and trickle out to the rest of the region, thus improving our economy. In fact, Spokane’s aerospace industry will benefit greatly.
This contract came from the Air Force, which is part of the Department of Defense, which is, of course, part of the government. Therefore, it’s – all together now – a government contract. Government contracts are out there for almost any business. Let’s see how you can find new customers within the government.
