By Bob Spiwak January 19: The weather out there mirrors the feelings of us Green Bay Packer fans: gray, dark, depressing and slippery. That last is appropriate for the poor guy who dropped the ball on the onside kick by Seattle. Was it a drop, or knocked away from him? Only the film knows. Five...

Winthrop: January 21, 2015

By Ashley Lodato The other night I was at the four-way stop in Winthrop behind a car with a rear license plate spelling out “GA-ME 1978,” which I imagine indicates that the owner of the car hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine in 1978 (and, incidentally, would have been one of about only...

Letters to the editor: January 21, 2015

It’s about the vote Dear Editor: My son is a firefighter on the west side. I would always hope and pray that he had the latest, greatest equipment and facility. But this is more than that — this is about the voting system in America. The Okanogan County Fire District 6 board of directors presented a levy...
