BY SALLY GRACIE As I weeded the shelves at the Twisp Library last week, I came upon two unlikely companions under “J” in fiction. There, touching covers, were E. L.

BY SALLY GRACIE Did you have trouble with your Verizon phone over Memorial Day weekend? How many tourists does it take to make the cell phone towers overload? At the Pipestone Music Days concert on Saturday evening (May 25), young violinist Keeley Brooks played Vivaldi’s Concerto in A Minor. Keeley was the first-place winner of...

BY SALLY GRACIE Bill and Joni Miller are some of the nicest, down-home people to migrate to Twisp in recent years. Their local business, Community Bicycle Services, has a stall at the Farmers Market.
