Twisp: Dec. 23, 2015

By Sally Gracie Six months after I first wrote about Brandon Sheely as “a patient in search of a diagnosis,” doctors have still not been able to give his illness a name. In January and February 2016, Brandon has appointments with two different Lyme disease specialists on the west side. He is somewhat hopeful that...

By Sally Gracie I drove my trusty Matrix AWD in low gear through the slush on Glover Street on Sunday afternoon. Pulling to a stop in front of The Merc Playhouse, I realized that the matinee I’d come to see probably wasn’t going to happen. The parking spaces had not been plowed. A handwritten sign...

By Sally Gracie Jennifer and Richard Edwards were at Hank’s Harvest Foods the other day. I’ve been writing about Richard Edwards’ fight against cancer off and on this year. Though I’ve known Jennifer, I hadn’t met Richard before. But there he was, right next to the tangerines, smiling and looking healthy indeed. Jennifer says that...

By Sally Gracie Hurray to the curators, Salyna Gracie and Sarah Jo Lightner, for bringing back Christmas trees to Confluence Gallery’s annual gift show. “Miniatures: It’s the Little Things,” is especially lovely this year. Christmas trees in the main gallery and the gift shop are hung with ornaments made by local artists in glass, wood...

By Sally Gracie Last week a friend had to brake to a sudden stop on Twisp-Winthrop Eastside Road. Not for the black cattle being moved at night — which also happened recently — but for two mule deer “doing the dirty deed,” as my friend politely described it. It’s rutting season, and the deer have abandoned reason. You’re as...

By Sally Gracie One of the photos in last week’s column was misidentified as Jeff Newman when, of course, it was really Phil Woras, who played at the Twisp River Pub with Shakedonia on Halloween. When I asked friends if they had noticed the mistake, they said they took the word of the Methow Valley News to...

By Sally Gracie OK, you guys, stop kvetching about losing Daylight Saving Time and enjoy the lovely mornings that “fall back” has given us. Instead of staying in front of the TV (I was binge-watching five new episodes of “Gotham” — I’m learning all about Cat, Penguin, and the young Bruce Wayne), I pulled on some black...

By Sally Gracie Although the “free deer skinning” sign was not out by Highway 20 when I drove by on Monday, I took a chance and drove into Katie Russell’s place north of Twisp. Turns out that she and her two friends, Rollean and Callie, were there but had so much work they had pulled...

By Sally Gracie The sermon title on the billboard at Friendship Church caught my attention this morning. It was something like “A crisis is an opportunity for change.” Of course. Change can be an “opportunity.” I just wasn’t feeling it today. I haven’t had any crises to live through this summer, and for that I...

By Sally Gracie Did you miss the Harper Lee discussion at the Twisp library? No worries. The Winthrop library will host a discussion of Harper Lee’s books (To Kill a Mockingbird and Go Set a Watchman), and this year’s Columbia River Reads selection The Mockingbird Next Door by Marja Mills, next Wednesday (Oct. 21) at...
