Sometimes I get a nudge from the late, great Lucille Tumelson, former Pollock news reporter… and I sure did this week. Lee and Cathy Tumelson had a weekend filled with family and fun. Their two daughters and husbands, Holly and Phil Agnor and sons, Holt, 2, and Kai, 3 months, of Hood River, Ore., and Tiffany and Bill Baker and son, Heyden, 18 months, of Colville, Wash., were home to help Lee celebrate his birthday along with Lee’s brother and wife, Tom and Bert Tumelson, and their daughter, Kali, and her two children, Dawson and Kinley, and Cathy’s parents, Bev and Andy Walyer.
