Supports Enloe decision Dear Editor: Considering the amount of negative input the Okanogan Public Utility District decision has received about restoring the Enloe Dam project, I feel compelled to provide positive support.

Good to see Dear Editor: Nice to see some smoke in the air from U.S. Forest Service prescribed burning. Good for forest health and for protection of human habitat too. And yes, of course, smaller amounts now are part of reducing the future likelihood of heavy and long-lasting smoke episodes from uncontrolled wildfire. Susan Crampton, Twisp/Winthrop...
