Truly sorry for my behavior
- Dear Editor,
- This letter is to the president of the American Legion in Oroville and I’ve agreed to have it published in the local paper:
OROVILLE – You don’t like the weather in the valley, just wait five minutes and it will change – from extreme heat to rain and hail, this year’s cherry harvest has seen it all.
Just as important as knowing the candidates is knowing which candidates represent you in the various legislative districts. One reader said this can be confusing and suggested we find a way of explaining which district the various citizens of the county vote in. As the Tuesday, Aug. 7 primary ballots are going out in the mail today, we thought we’d do our best to try and clear some of this up.
OROVILLE – Mark your calendars for an activity packed weekend July 20 to July 21 as Oroville Heritage Days and Fly-in take place in Oroville.
OROVILLE – The Oroville City Council amended the 2012-2017 Six Year Transportation Program at their Tuesday, July 3 meeting adding $51,568 Preliminary Engineering money for the STPR Central and Cherry Streets projects.
CHESAW – Talon Kartchner was named Senior All Around Cowboy and Corey Olson Junior All Around Cowboy at the Chesaw Fourth of July Rodeo.
Kartchner, from Republic, took first place in the Bareback and third in the Senior Cow Riding. He teamed up with Steve Kartchner, also of Republic, to take third in the Wild Cow Milking, as well. Olson, of Chesaw, took second in the Pee Wee Barrels.
OKANOGAN – Detective Mike Murray, who served for two years as Okanogan County Sheriff and started his career with the Oroville Police Department, has retired.
