Saturday brought a stellar show to the Omak Performing Arts Center as the Okanogan Valley Orchestra and Chorus hosted its annual holiday concert. Never before have I been more impressed with this fine group of musicians as I was with their latest performance.
Christmas is right around the corner. Earlier this week, while driving to the office, I noticed only a few houses along my way with beautiful colored lights on them. Which begs the question, why are so few people decorating this year?
The holiday season is in full swing, still with more emphasis on Christmas than Thanksgiving, even though turkey day is tomorrow.
I love listening to music, be it one of today’s “hot new” songs, or a classic from yesteryear. While I’ll admit the bulk of my music collection (both physical and digital) is country, bluegrass and classic rock, I’ve got nothing against classical, folk, blues, and even the occasional pop song. Last week my brother purchased a subscription for me to the popular streaming music service Spotify.
The Boeing 747, with its iconic cockpit “hump,” soon will be just a memory as far as passenger service goes.
Does Thanksgiving even matter anymore?
Brrr! Where did this wintry weather come from? It seems we went from a nice autumn breeze to cold north winds all of a sudden.
My friend and longtime co-worker Elizabeth Widel died last Tuesday at age 100.
Every so often you will come across a special person in life. Someone that motivates you by his or her ethics or who leads by example. Elizabeth Widel was one of those people to me, and many others.
Ready or not, it seems winter is just around the corner. While we only had rain at our house this weekend, that wasn’t the case throughout much of the region.
Wildfires have been tearing across California’s Wine Country for more than a week.
I can’t believe were only 43 days away from Thanksgiving. Where has this year gone? On the topic of Thanksgiving, it was announced last week that the first Black Friday advertisement was released by Harbor Freight, a tool and equipment retailer.
Each morning I have a routine. I get up, let Gypsy (my 70-pound German Shepherd) outside, get a cup of coffee and sit down at my computer to read the daily headlines. It was sure a surprise to see an email from Garth Brooks’ promoter with information about his upcoming show Nov. 11 at the Spokane Arena.
Although the days are getting colder and darker earlier, there’s still plenty of activities to take in around Okanogan County.
North Valley Hospital’s board has plenty of people showing up to meetings and asking questions about how well the hospital is being managed.
