By Sally Gracie Rod Molzahn will present his very entertaining “A Visit With Will” this Friday (Feb. 13) at 7 p.m. at The Merc Playhouse. (I know it is entertaining, as I saw Rod perform as Will several years ago). The “Will” is, of course, William Shakespeare. “This is not a lecture,” Rod wants us...

By Sally Gracie Update: When Patrick Hannigan was here to install my Nice Nest, he also removed last year’s phoebe nest from the eaves of the garden shed so the new nesters wouldn’t come in contact with yucky stuff that might make them sick. If bird health was our goal, we probably should have placed...

By Sally Gracie Here’s how my day has gone. I felt crummy when I woke up. My head felt wrong; my lower back and my legs felt wrong. I just didn’t feel right. That little voice said “Call the doctor. Call 911.” The other voice said, “You’re being a hypochondriac. You’re probably just getting a...

By Sally Gracie It’s not surprising that I dreamed of snow last night; I was watching The Weather Channel before I went to sleep. Two young women in very short skirts and low-cut blouses hyped the “historic,” “record breaking,” “blockbuster” blizzard that would dump as much as 3 feet of snow on parts of the...

By Sally Gracie I bet all of you crazy-for-the-Seahawks readers are feeling pretty good today. There were just a few minutes left when the tide finally turned. None of the earlier turnovers and interceptions seemed to matter in the last minutes of the fourth quarter.  With a little less than four minutes on the clock,...

By Sally Gracie Liberty Bell High School freshman Logan Butler earned community service hours by collecting Christmas trees at the Coyote Ridge Automotive drop-off point in Twisp last Saturday. Trees that would normally go to a burn pile will instead be used to improve fish habitat. The project was sponsored by the Yakama Nations Fisheries....

By Sally Gracie Happy 2015. I can’t say I’m sorry to see 2014 behind me. Let’s hope and pray that we have no repeat of our fire summer. Lightning doesn’t strike twice! My perfect little Noble fir stands lighted in the corner of the living room. I usually wait until Jan. 6, the twelfth day...

By Sally Gracie Mary Bean, wearing a “100 years” sash over her sweater, was feted at a fabulous birthday party on Saturday (Dec. 27). Months of organizing by Mary’s daughter, Jo Doyle, and others were evident in the decorations at the Methow Valley Community Center gym. These included a guest-book table — the book was signed by...

By Sally Gracie Happy birthday to one of the great ladies in the history of the Methow Valley, Mary Bean, who turns 100 on Dec. 30. From July through the summer, coverage of the fires and floods in the Methow Valley News was so absorbing that I read every story, then read it again. When...

By Sally Gracie The Twisp branch of North Central Regional Library (NCLR) is the hub of the Methow Valley Community Center. As Twisp’s librarian, Terry Dixon has helped to make it so. Those of us who volunteer or substitute at the Twisp Library do so out of our strong belief in the importance of libraries,...
