Unacceptable Dear Editor: From what I understand, the public (who would fund the proposed Methow Valley Recreation District) would have no input or control over projects or taxes levied. It is therefore completely unacceptable. Vote no. Nadine Van Hees, Winthrop   Preventing sexual violence Dear Editor: April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and this year’s campaign...

More reasons for ‘no’ Dear Editor: Here are a few new reasons to oppose the Methow Valley Recreation District ballot measure. Once we begin to spend our recreation dollars via taxation and a new government body, rules come into force which limit or event prohibit volunteer labor. Furthermore, government spending must use union labor and/or...

The long view Dear Editor: Solveig Torvik’s “The irreversible tipping point” (Aug. 28) reports many of the scientific observations in the annual State of the Climate Report. Climate change is certainly a fact. Over the last 500,000 years the Earth has had five long ice ages and five short, warm inter-glacials in a cycle of...
