Members of the Lake Chelan Community Choir give a big “Thank you” to our fine community. Because of the generosity of those who attended our presentations of the Christmas Cantata, “Joy, Joy, Joy” Friday, December 2 and Saturday, December 3. The choir is fully funded to perform again. We are...
I have lived in the Lake Chelan Valley for 41 years, and by-and-large I have been satisfied with our local USPS service (junk mail notwithstanding), until November 2022.  As I have done numerous times in past years, on October 31 I dutifully filled out and turned in a yellow “Hold Mail” card for...
A few weeks ago, I sent an editorial to the Lake Chelan Mirror about the tragedy of the Chelan Senior Center’s ReRuns store closing.  I put out a plea to the community to “step up and save the ReRuns store”.  Well, I am so pleased to say that we got our miracle, and ReRuns is here to stay. There...

I want to bring to your attention the upcoming spring season of black bear hunting. The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission will be voting in November whether to hold a spring black bear hunting season in 2022.  This is a very cruel act as it leaves cubs to die from starvation, predation, or...
We want to give a “shout out” for school board candidate, Barb Polley.  We know her both personally and professionally.  You could not have a better participant on the school board.  She is an advocate for all students, wanting the best educational possible for each and every one.  Her many years...
After reading Judie Gembala’s letter to the editor September 8, I feel I must reply with an alternative perception of the school board meeting on August 30.   As a relative newcomer to the Manson area and having moved here permanently in 2017, I decided to become more involved in my community...
