Mazama: August 15, 2018

By Erika Kar Friday night and early Saturday morning brought the storm that we had all been expecting. The sky was lit up in Mazama with bolts of lightning that would have been beautiful to watch, if not for the feeling of impending doom. Welcome to August in the Methow. At approximately 6 a.m., residents of...

Mazama: August 8, 2018

By Erika Kar Everywhere I go, people are telling me that I need to write about the swimming hole. OK, that is not exactly true. One person, aside from my family and the voices in my head, has suggested that I write about the swimming hole. But one out of 250 people is 0.4 percent. So,...

Mazama: August 1, 2018

By Erika Kar It was a two-fer Saturday night in the beautiful town of Mazama. The Mazama Store continued with its wildly popular Beer and Brat Nights, which happen every Thursday, Friday and Saturday night through the summer. While the name might lead you to believe that you can only get beer or brats, kind of...

By Erika Kar What you are reading here is supposedly something of a gossip column. However, living in such a small community makes an actual gossip column, like Page Six of The New York Post, nearly impossible unless you want to get run out of town by some pitchfork- and torch-bearing angry neighbors. I certainly don’t....

Mazama: July 11, 2018

By Erika Kar Crime has been a hot topic in Mazama lately. Back in the spring, there had been some vandalism, graffiti, to be more exact. Then came the thefts. Car prowls, break-ins and thefts at trailheads were being reported as early as June 11, according to this very publication. However the MethowNet Bulletin Board didn’t...

Mazama: July 4, 2018

By Erika Kar With the Fourth of July coming up, I know that I should be writing about something patriotic, celebratory or, at the very least, regarding the fireworks ban. But up in Mazama we don’t have a parade, a festival or even any face painting. If you want some of this action, head to Twisp...

Mazama: May 30, 2018

By Erika Kar Like the rest of the valley, Mazama was full this past weekend. FULL. And many things happened. Some of which I should probably be reporting on, except that I tried to stay home. And I mostly did. Hey, what can I say? I wrote in my very first column that I am pretty...

By Erika Kar The ripples of Ian Fair’s life are still out there, still having impact, still making a difference. One place we can see it at the Bush School’s Methow Campus located at the former North Cascades Basecamp on Lost River Road. Ian had been the program director there and was working on methods for...

Mazama: May 16, 2018

By Erika Kar The hot topic around the valley is the rivers and possibility of flooding. There are many people who might want to know things such as numbers — like cubic feet, flow, and the like. I am absolutely not the right person to give you this information, as numbers and things dealing with numbers...

Mazama: May 9, 2018

By Erika Kar Mazama was alive and bustling this past weekend with the 2018 Sunflower Marathon, Half-Marathon and Relay put on by Methow Trails. The flowers, the weather, the volunteers and the organizers all cooperated to showcase the very best of the valley. And although the North Cascades Highway opening didn’t happen in time, it did...
