Reports about efforts to organize a new football team in the Lewis-Clark Valley have left some wondering if Lewis-Clark State College is somehow associated with the new team. According to press release, LCSC officials are making it clear that the team, called the Lewis-Clark Valley Loggers, has absolutely no affiliation with LCSC.


“Our priority is to strengthen the existing programs we have,” LCSC Athletic Director Gary Picone says. “Any expansion or growth in our programs would not include football.”

Week days after school you can find Spencer Kimbro shooting hoops in the gym at the elementary school where his mom teaches in Moses Lake. This fall, he raced cross country at Chief Moses Middle School for the first time. On weekends, the Kimbros head to Spokane so that Spencer can practice with ParaSport Spokane.


Spencer, who has Spina Bifida, is no stranger to being interviewed. He’s the face of Youth Outdoors Unlimited, a Central Washington based nonprofit that teaches kids with disabilities how to hunt and fish. Spencer learned how to hunt and fish in 2010 and loves it.

Meet the Athletes: Mike

You can’t help but smile when you’re around 10-year-old Mike Lucas. He’s a double amputee, but his smile and spirit are bright reminder to always get back up and go for it.


Outside of his disability, Mike is just like any other 10-year-old boy. He likes to play basketball and video games on the Wii. His favorite subject in school is science. At the Shoe City Open track meet, Mike ended a long day of races making sure that everyone had a snack and chasing after a football with members of Team U.S.A.. When he took a tumble on the field he popped right back up.
