Dear Friends and Neighbors, Greetings from our state capitol in Olympia! Today is the first day of the 2019 legislative session, scheduled for 105 days. The first day of each legislative session is highlighted by important traditions. The large double doors to the Senate and House chambers are...
Members of the Lake Chelan Community Choir give a big “Thank you” to the Mirror staff who chose to include our Christmas performances Dec. 7 & 8th  in the “Year in review” summary of events.   Also –  a second “Thank You” is in order to this fine community.      Because of the generosity of...

I will continue my service this year on the Senate’s Early Learning and K-12 Education Committee, which is chaired by Sen. Lisa Wellman (right) of Mercer Island. In my new role as the committee’s ranking member, I will work more closely with the chair and staff on committee legislative matters. This position will give me opportunity to put my 10 years of school board experience to good use on issues.
Dear Friends and Neighbors, Happy New Year! I hope you had a great holiday season with friends, family, and loved ones. I wish you good health, enjoyable work, and lots of joy in 2019. Hopefully a snowy winter will provide you ample opportunity to enjoy sledding with your families or some of our...

It causes me great concern when I see the TV commercials and hear the speeches of Dr. Kim Schrier as she campaigns for Congress.

It has come to our attention that Judge Kristin Ferrera’s appointment for Chelan County Superior Court Judge and now her bid to be retained for that position, has been called into question by her opponent. Judge Ferrera’s opponent is implying that as an appointee of Governor Jay Inslee she must...
Not with all democrats, but with the leaders. Why are they so far left? I think it’s safe to say that they are all radicals and every thing they say must be carefully analyzed or we will all be fooled. It’s clear we are being fooled by people who have been voted out of leadership positions and can’...
