Family home evening
- Dear Editor,
- Concerning the family, big or small, one thing is for sure, they are important! So, what makes a family so important?
OROVILLE – Breity Tufte will be teaching ballet for all ages at the Oroville Fitness Center beginning this spring.
MOLSON – Noah and Heather Burnell have recently taken over the Inn at Molson and transformed it into the Phoenix Caf&#233; and Gallery.
OROVILLE – Joseph Enzensperger approached the Oroville City Council to ask that they consider opposing Okanogan County PUD’s current plan to generate hydroelectric power at Enloe Dam because of the high cost and potential to dewater the Similkameen Falls below.
OKANOGAN – After 19 years on the bench, Judge Jack Burchard has announced that it is time to retire and he will not be seeking a sixth term.
OKANOGAN – Okanogan County Assessor, Scott Furman, is reminding everyone that owns a business, ranch, farm or orchard in in the county that they are required by state law to provide the assessor with an itemized list of all personal property as of Jan. 1 of each year.
NORTH COUNTY – Voters in the Tonasket and Oroville School Districts have been asked to approve two-year Maintenance and Operations levies to replace levies approved in 2010.
MOLSON – The 2012 North Central Washington Ice Fishing Festival will be the Saturday of Presidents’ Day Weekend, Feb. 18 at Molson.
OROVILLE – The fact post season tournaments for boys and girls wrestling are held at two different locations raised the question of whether a volunteer coach could stand in the corner for the girls and still meet federal Title IX requirements.
Both Oroville and Tonasket School Districts are going before the voters asking them to replace the two-year Maintenance and Operations Levies that are running out this year. The new two-year M&amp;Os, which will be collected in the years 2013 and 2014, are necessary to continue to provide our school kids with an education they can use to go on to find jobs, pursue higher education opportunities and to better the communities in which they live. An excellent education prepares our students to be good citizens and to become productive members of society.
