County should act Dear Editor: Your front-page picture of the un-permitted trailer park development on the banks of the Methow River last week was truly disturbing. We’re glad to see that after numerous complaints, Okanogan County sent a “cease and desist” letter to the property owner. It’s encouraging that the County responds in some way...

Show some respect Dear Editor: As a taxpaying resident of Okanogan County, I am concerned with the ongoing issue of the Three Devils Road vacation. The Chiliwist group and supporters that are working to keep that road open to the public have been accused of having a vendetta against the vacation petitioners — the Gebbers/Gambles group. The truth...

Barry’s annual snow blower advice Dear Editor: To my fellow snow country folks: Now that it looks like winter is soon to show her face, I feel moved to pass on some annual advice. Over 20 years ago I had a moment of brain-deadness and ended up turning off a snow blower with my left...

Thanks from Farmers Market Dear Editor: Well, another successful season for the Methow Valley Farmers Market just ended.

Invest in Three Rivers Dear Editor: Where do you plan to go for urgent care or childbirth as a Methow Valley resident?

Questionable statements Dear Editor: Concerning Dana Visalli’s recent letter, I’m not sure what lie he is talking about, so I will restrict my comments to a few of his questionable statements. • “The United States divided Vietnam into North and South.” This is untrue. When the French surrendered to the Vietminh in 1954, both parties...

Thank you from Ski and Jennifer Dear Editor: Words cannot begin to express the gratitude we feel for the outpouring of love and support we’ve received since our son Tom’s death.

Power grab Dear Editor: After running on a platform touting small government, our county commissioners want to expand government by taking over our health district and making it a county health department. Currently there are six members of the Board of Health comprised of the three commissioners and three members representing incorporated cities and towns....

A distraction Dear Editor: It has been 10 years since Al Gore wrote his masterpiece of environmental hysteria, An Inconvenient Truth. The years go by and not much changes, the rain still falls and the grass still grows. One outcome of Al’s work is the creation of federal funding for research intended to support the idea that human activity causes global warming....
