Twisp: March 18, 2015

By Sally Gracie A white puddle beneath my back porch on the north side of the house is all that remains of our winter’s stingy snowfall. Boston broke records with 108.6 inches; I doubt we had 2 feet. The annual fundraiser dinner for Wenatchee’s Trusting Spirit Horse Rescue was held last week at Twisp River...

By Sally Gracie Snow melt, so early this year, has exposed the enemy in the garden. Gophers/voles are active in one flower garden, and the war is on. I’ve purchased gas bombs and MoleMax pellets from Katrina. I can’t tell what has been destroyed, but ominous lumps of loose soil suggest damage to plants and...

By Sally Gracie I spent Sunday watching Academy Award “best picture” nominees on pay-per view. After playing a role in The Merc Playhouse Readers Theater production on Friday and Saturday, I was most taken by Birdman, a story about a Hollywood super-hero who, to prove his worth, risks everything as an actor on Broadway. Needless...

By Sally Gracie Did you read Ashley Lodato’s “In Defense of the Gossip Columnist?” That column was an adaptation of the witty essay she shared at the 113th birthday party for the Methow Valley News a few weeks ago. If only Ashley and I could publish all the rumors and gossip we are privy to, we...

By Sally Gracie Rod Molzahn will present his very entertaining “A Visit With Will” this Friday (Feb. 13) at 7 p.m. at The Merc Playhouse. (I know it is entertaining, as I saw Rod perform as Will several years ago). The “Will” is, of course, William Shakespeare. “This is not a lecture,” Rod wants us...

By Sally Gracie Here’s how my day has gone. I felt crummy when I woke up. My head felt wrong; my lower back and my legs felt wrong. I just didn’t feel right. That little voice said “Call the doctor. Call 911.” The other voice said, “You’re being a hypochondriac. You’re probably just getting a...

By Sally Gracie It’s not surprising that I dreamed of snow last night; I was watching The Weather Channel before I went to sleep. Two young women in very short skirts and low-cut blouses hyped the “historic,” “record breaking,” “blockbuster” blizzard that would dump as much as 3 feet of snow on parts of the...

By Sally Gracie I bet all of you crazy-for-the-Seahawks readers are feeling pretty good today. There were just a few minutes left when the tide finally turned. None of the earlier turnovers and interceptions seemed to matter in the last minutes of the fourth quarter.  With a little less than four minutes on the clock,...

By Sally Gracie Liberty Bell High School freshman Logan Butler earned community service hours by collecting Christmas trees at the Coyote Ridge Automotive drop-off point in Twisp last Saturday. Trees that would normally go to a burn pile will instead be used to improve fish habitat. The project was sponsored by the Yakama Nations Fisheries....

By Sally Gracie Happy 2015. I can’t say I’m sorry to see 2014 behind me. Let’s hope and pray that we have no repeat of our fire summer. Lightning doesn’t strike twice! My perfect little Noble fir stands lighted in the corner of the living room. I usually wait until Jan. 6, the twelfth day...
