Sad to see the Peerless name change, but….

Don’t cut Critical Access
- Dear Editor,
- Here is a copy of a letter I sent to our representatives in Olympia and I think more people in the community should be aware that Tonasket’s North Valley Hospital is a Critical Access hospital and may face severe cuts if this budget cut is enacted. I encourage members of the community to act as I did.
Grateful for levy vote
- Dear Editor,
- During these difficult economic times, the Tonasket School Board is heartened by the continued commitment of voters to the children of Tonasket and its surrounding communities. Their approval of a two-year maintenance and operations levy shows these precious children how very important their education is to their future and to ours. Strong schools benefit the community in numerous ways, and a solid partnership between schools and community is better for all.
