Twisp: May 21, 2014

By Sally Gracie Two popular annual events are coming up on Saturday (May 24): the Cowboy Breakfast and Western Sale at the Senior Center, and the Twisp Library Friends’ book sale in the gym. Instead of the live auctioneer, the best Western items will be on the front lawn for silent auction bidding. These include...

By Sally Gracie A poster titled “How to Build a Community” hangs on my fridge, and I read through the list of “how to’s” from time to time to see how Twisp is doing. This past Mother’s Day weekend — like so many other weekends here — shows that the community of Twisp is doing just fine, thank you....

By Sally Gracie There was so much going on the weekend before last (April 25 – 27) that I couldn’t fit everything into last week’s column, and I just have to write about Pam Hunt’s studio recital at the Community Center on the afternoon on April 26. I was so impressed with Pam’s violin students’ performances. And...

By Sally Gracie Happy 98th birthday to Lloyd Bjerge, for whom a party will be held at the Methow Valley Senior Center lunch on Friday (May 2), his actual birthdate. An honest critic must say that Mirificus High (mirificus, from the Latin: amazing, wonderful) is a work-in-progress, but no less delightful because of that. The...

By Sally Gracie Methow Arts’ Facebook timeline has a new cover photo and profile picture this Monday morning — “art baby” graphics — and the most recent post begins, “A tiny work of art has entered the world.” Congratulations to Amanda and Kraig Mott, whose daughter was born at the hospital in Brewster (if all went according to the plans...

By Sally Gracie A male rufous hummingbird arrived first. I saw him last Tuesday at 7:40 a.m., and I like to think he is “my” bird, the one who has traveled a great distance for the third year to the back porch feeder. His more-timid mate followed soon after. The hummers have settled in so...

By Sally Gracie I hung the feeder on the porch yesterday in anticipation of my returning hummingbirds, still beating their wings north to Twisp — “Are we there yet? Are we there yet?” They’ll probably be as relieved to arrive as I will be happy to see them. In other bird news, various woodpeckers — including my favorite northern...

By Sally Gracie Six little piggies. Six tiny little piggies in a big blue tub in the back room at Valley Veterinary Clinic, where Stata Powers keeps them workdays while she is at the front desk. Dan and Terry DeWeert, whose business is animals, are sympathetic to Stata’s trying to save the piglets’ lives. One...

By Sally Gracie A series of unfortunate events led Methow Valley Theater to cancel its opening weekend performances of the adult comedy The Seven Year Itch. The play will go on with performances at the Methow Valley Community Center auditorium on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings (March 27 – 29) at 7:30 p.m. The cast wants the...

By Sally Gracie I mentioned the play Over the River and Through the Woods last week, didn’t I? But at lunchtime, Jocelyn Murray came walking from the highway into the Hank’s Harvest Foods parking lot as I was leaving. She saw the play over the weekend and liked it so much she wanted to be...
