reports a gain
Coulee Medical Center reported a net gain for the month of July of $124,899.
The good month eases an overall loss for the year that stood at $317,758 on net patient revenues of $12.3 million.
Okanogan County Sheriff Frank Rogers found his agency dealing with two unrelated deaths Monday.
Carissa L. Amundson, 22 of Omak, was killed as she was ejected from a 2001 Ford Focus as it rolled after it didn’t make a curve on Fish Lake Road about six miles north of Conconully about 6:30 a.m.
About 45 minutes later, deputies were responding to a report of a shooting victim on Cow Camp Road on Pontiac Ridge out of Chesaw.
They found a victim shot to death as two subjects from the west side of the state were grouse hunting.
Names were not released pending notification of next of kin.
No arrests have been made, but the sheriff is treating the incident as a murder investigation, the county’s fifth this year.
Time to honor those who serve
The Grant County Board of Commissioners yesterday voted to proclaim September as National Preparedness month in Grant County, urging all citizens to “join us in recognizing and supporting those who volunteer and serve.”
