By Sarah Schrock I know you’ve seen them, driving up and down the highway every hour; orange place names on the roof, striped green and blue. The 12-passenger buses operated by TranGO seem to be gaining riders, based on my un-official observations. I was the sole rider on my first TranGO trip last month. The...

By Sarah Schrock Before I begin, I want to apologize for my blunders in last week’s column about the pool party. I totally blew it on the who’s who and what they do. First off, Emele Clothier sang folk songs along with Fred Cooley, not Lauralee Northcott. I am sorry to have confused these talented...

By Sarah Schrock The zombie apocalypse has arrived. They are invading homes, gardens, ranches and just about anything that gets in their path. Grab your children, your pets and your garlic because these monsters will eat anything, even each other. Their sheer numbers and menacing chirps and screeches are enough to drive one to madness....

By Sarah Schrock If you haven’t been to the Methow Valley Farmers Market recently, you will be pleasantly surprised by the number of new vendors and farm stands this year. All the oldies but goodies are also still going strong. Methow Gold, pure raw honey by Blane Rogers, is always one of my regular stops....

By Sarah Schrock “Little opportunity for the air mass to warm up” from “the seemingly endless parade of cool and wet low pressure systems” that we have been experiencing. This, from NOAA forecasters, is a great departure from the original long-term forecasts that predicted above-average temperatures. So why the change? I want to know because...

By Sarah Schrock My neighborhood is undergoing some growing pains, being the epicenter for the largest subdivisions Twisp has probably seen since the platting of Gloversville in 1897. We are happy to welcome new neighbors. However, with the advent of new development come conversations regarding traffic, noise, light pollution, safety and preparedness. We recently met...

By Sarah Schrock This is the first of a periodic series of columns about the trees of Twisp. Walking through Twisp, you will notice some diverse and interesting inhabitants. Hailing from foreign lands, they are frequently considered aliens. Despite calling Twisp home for many years, these local residents are often treated unkindly because they tend...

By Sarah Schrock Imagine the life of a child in poverty from a country afflicted with political upheavals, economic uncertainties and famine that dances on the heels of unpredictable rains. In a land where security means life behind iron gates and armed men for the privileged and elite, or in the sheer numbers of slum...

By Sarah Schrock Here’s something you didn’t know: 840,000 people. That’s roughly how many people would be required to eat a Popsicle the size of a blue whale. This was a question posed to me by my 4-year-old: “What if we made a Popsicle the size of a blue whale?” It would take more than...

By Sarah Schrock I am skeptical of the notion of death without regret. Sure, all of us would love to arrive at the finish line without harboring doubts over our lives decisions. But this weekend I managed to generate a regret I am sure to go to my grave with: missing “A Prairie Home Companion”...
