Cougars have no choice Dear Editor: As people, we have many choices. Most of us chose to move here from someplace else for many reasons. One reason, I’m sure most will agree, is the wild, natural beauty that surrounds us, which includes cougars. We chose to move here, the cougars did not. They were here....

Where is Teddy? Dear Editor: An informative and interesting read for anyone who enjoys history is The Bully Pulpit by historian Doris Kerns Goodwin. This book is framed in the early part of the 20th century during the turmoil between the newly formed worker unions and the trusts owned by the wealthy. These trusts or...

Help Beebe Springs Dear Editor: The Beebe Springs Natural Area (BSNA) is a new roadside attraction. The 200-acre site has been purchased by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and its riparian portions have been reworked for salmon habitat, the upland portions sculpted into rolling hills for shrub steppe native plants.

Annexation is equitable Dear Editor: A recent article about the Town of Twisp’s budget would lead the public to believe that the town is paying the fire district $41,202 in 2013 and $54,845 in 2014. The actual amounts — according to the signed document that is a matter of public record — are $35,000 for 2013 and $42,000 for...

Seattle ruined the Methow Dear Editor: It was interesting to read your paper for a short time but I do not want to receive it any more. This is so obviously not the same town or quality of people that I lived with there in my youth. It has been taken over by alien Seattle...

Aero Methow’s excellent service Dear Editor: This letter is long overdue and I apologize for my tardiness. Life has been a roller coaster the past few months.

Praise for Mackies Dear Editor: I take issue with Mr. Stern’s letter (Nov. 27) claiming that the Loup Loup Ski Rental shop in Twisp has no connection with the Loup Loup Ski Education Foundation (LLSEF). The Loup Loup Ski Bowl owes a great deal to Ron and Kim Mackie, owners of the shop in Twisp. Their connection...

It was a community effort that benefited the Methow Valley Nordic Team and hopefully many...

Honoring our veterans Dear Editor: On Veterans Day, the board of the Methow Valley Senior Center sponsored a lunch in honor of the military veterans in the valley who have served our nation. We were absolutely thrilled with the turnout. The Senior Center was filled to capacity with veterans from World War II, Korea, Vietnam,...
