It seems while our family was getting a couple of first hand reminders of how awesome our community EMS, Fire Departments, law enforcement and hospital staff (i.e. admitting, nursing and practitioners) are, I missed the latest misconstruing of our infamous hospital CEO.
Letters to the Editor
Dear Editor, I am responding to a recent Gazette-Tribune article about Enloe Dam, which featured unsupported predictions from the PUD on how much it might cost to remove the dam. The PUD’s cost estimates have no basis in reality and seem more intended to shock ratepayers into letting the PUD off the hook on its [...]
I am writing on behalf of The Nourishing Hand, our local animal rescue. We are a 501c3 nonprofit, equine rescue, dog rescue and pet food bank. We want to let the community know what services we offer and also to ask for support to continue to help rescue and rehabilitate animals in need.
The Okanogan Amateur Radio Club recognizes First Concrete Pouring at Grand Coulee Dam
Dec. 6th, 1935 was the first “ceremonious pour” of concrete at Grand Coulee Dam. It was the first of a total of 12 million yards, which is enough to pour a sidewalk around the world at the equator twice!
A letter to the editor from a former player of Tonasket basketball coach Agustin Pedregon:

The Tonasket Food Bank would like to take this opportunity to thank all the churches, community organizations, and individuals who contributed to our recent “turkey drive.” Your responses were overwhelming!
The following responds to the North Valley hospital nurse/CEO comments last week. I apologize for its length, but there is a lot to address. At the outset, I want to say that I greatly respect good hospital administrators, and that hospital boards have one of the most challenging jobs in the country.
Your feature article “Group demands Enloe Dam Breach” is a misrepresentation of the facts presented at the PUD meeting Nov. 5, 2013. I was fortunate to be one of the ratepayers present, having heard through the grapevine, that Enloe Dam was the $5.4 million dollar 2014 budget item focused on that evening. The PUD did no publicity or advertising for this 6:30 pm public meeting.
There is no argument the health care situation is a fiasco but let’s be honest, do you really think the government cares if the American people are covered under a qualified health insurance plan? No. After weeks of trying to understand this web of deceit our leaders have spun, I have come to one conclusion: The “Affordable Care Act” is a ruse to obtain more revenue from the taxpayers.
