The Colville tribes completed a deal this week to purchase a veneer and lumber mill in Omak that closed 18 months ago. The reopening of the mill is expected to be a big boost to the Okanogan County economy, which is in dire straights.

Colville Indian Power and Veneer will bring between 70 and 120 jobs to Okanogan County, said Terry Knapton, chief operating officer of the Colville Tribal Enterprise Corp.
