Former Colville Tribal officer recalls huge victory, huge loss

David Finley has proud memories of serving as a Colville tribal police officer and game warden. The 65-year-old Inchelium resident was part of a law enforcement team that won the tribe jurisdiction over its lakes and waterways at a time when non-Indian entities patrolled the reservation. When he had the chance to buy a piece of history — the shell of a light green patrol boat used to issue a citation to a county officer, which contributed to the tribe regaining its rights to enforce law on its land — he didn’t hesitate to make an...

Different options could get relief out faster or could let the state more closely direct the aid to the people who...
