Praise for Mackies Dear Editor: I take issue with Mr. Stern’s letter (Nov. 27) claiming that the Loup Loup Ski Rental shop in Twisp has no connection with the Loup Loup Ski Education Foundation (LLSEF). The Loup Loup Ski Bowl owes a great deal to Ron and Kim Mackie, owners of the shop in Twisp. Their connection...

What does Ward want? Dear Editor: Usually after reading one of Ward Hartzell’s thesaurus-tainted diatribes (“Suffocating overkill,” Nov. 6), I send copies to friends and relatives to demonstrate the range of, umm, culture here in the Methow Valley. But this time I am not forwarding his letter because I have no idea what he is...

Spread the word Dear Editor: Thanks for the comments on prostate cancer (Sept. 18). It was emailed to me by a friend in the Methow Valley who was recently diagnosed. I went through it in 2005.

Filer brings balance Dear Editor: The first time my grandfather, Charley Schmidt, came to the Methow Valley was in 1913 on a fishing trip from Waterville.
