As members of the Tonasket School Board, we are asking our voters to replace the expiring Maintenance and Operations Levy. Community support is crucial to our quest to provide quality programs and to maintain our facilities and grounds. Fortunately, levy dollars in our district are nearly matched by additional funds from the state, but we receive these matching funds ONLY if voters approve the levy. Ballots, separate from the presidential primary ballots, will be sent this week and must be postmarked no later than March 11th.

I find it disgusting and offensive when I watch folks out walking their dogs and “Doggie” takes a “poo” in the neighbor’s yard and after doing the deed, both continue on their way. How inconsiderate and irresponsible is that?
While briefly discussing politics with a friend.., I commented that I wished I had the option to vote for “no President at all” because our country has been going steadily downhill for the past 50 years. Why do I feel this way? After all, the government constantly tells us we are in a period of unprecedented freedom and prosperity.
Hand-stitched quilts of old in every room; the love in them will never wash away or fade. She “touches” my hand whenever I touch her works.
Charlie and Momma are no longer on this “level.” I still experience that stage of separation when loved ones of many years are only temporarily away. Memories refuse to fade, instead, come alive, vividly stand out to take my breath away with a knowing pain in my solar plexus that beg a tear. Yet, the memories offer joys of the past.
I thought my bench letter was fairly explanatory, if digested thoroughly. Let’s flip the spectrum to summer. Any day above 90 degrees with a beating sun on dark brown cement will not “cool your buns.” It will cook them. How many hot days will Oroville have next summer? As I said, the slat wood type are comfortable and useable at any temperature.
And the posture angle. Do you like to squat or lean? I guess it depends on the moment.
