Wrong priorities Dear Editor: I see in the legal briefs the call for bids to repave Lincoln Street from Twisp Avenue to the park and pool area. I fail to see the priorities on these street repairs. It’s one of the town’s better streets that has no potholes in its driving surface. We have other...

Many disconnects Seems like AT&T wasn’t the only one to suffer a disconnect during the recent fires. The same folks who claim they hate the federal government are eager to receive disaster funds in the multi-millions. The county will take the biggest gains for “infrastructure” repairs and wants more funds for individuals who suffered losses....

Rodriguez for coroner Dear Editor: I am writing in support of Dave Rodriguez to be your Okanogan County coroner. When someone dies and the death is not expected, the coroner must visit the scene to document the death before the person can be moved. The coroner comes into your home or the scene of the...

More ATV damage Dear Editor: Ann McCreary did her usual fine job on her “over-snow vehicles” article (July 2) — except she failed to note that snowmobile impacts are not limited to the winter. How can that be? Well, for one example, the Tonasket Ranger District signed a cooperative trail maintenance agreement in about 2008 with one...

Not so little Dear Editor: I attended the U.S. Forest Service meeting at the Winthrop Barn on May 19 to hear about the Blue River plans for drilling (on Flagg Mountain). I left thinking of Carl Sandberg’s poem about the fog: The fog slips in on little cat feet, It sits on silent haunches and...

Thanks from the Housers Dear Editor: The Houser family would like to say thank you to the Methow Valley Senior Center, the volunteers, those wonderful cooks and dessert makers, Hank’s Harvest Foods for providing the food, and to anyone else who helped with this unbelievable event. Wow. Our appreciation has no words that could even...

Why a new tax? Dear Editor: I have a huge concern over the Methow Valley Recreation District. This district is proposed under RCW 35.61, which deals with Metropolitan Park Districts. A Metropolitan Park District would be greatly unfair to property owners in School District 350. Here’s why: • Adding a new property tax makes your...

Cougars have no choice Dear Editor: As people, we have many choices. Most of us chose to move here from someplace else for many reasons. One reason, I’m sure most will agree, is the wild, natural beauty that surrounds us, which includes cougars. We chose to move here, the cougars did not. They were here....

Where is Teddy? Dear Editor: An informative and interesting read for anyone who enjoys history is The Bully Pulpit by historian Doris Kerns Goodwin. This book is framed in the early part of the 20th century during the turmoil between the newly formed worker unions and the trusts owned by the wealthy. These trusts or...

Help Beebe Springs Dear Editor: The Beebe Springs Natural Area (BSNA) is a new roadside attraction. The 200-acre site has been purchased by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and its riparian portions have been reworked for salmon habitat, the upland portions sculpted into rolling hills for shrub steppe native plants. I want...
