The packages from Pennsylvania were most anticipated
Will we have a white Christmas in the Okanogan Valley? Well, that’s up to Mother Nature and, frankly, I don’t really care. As of Friday, when I wrote this, we had a little bit of snow and it was still falling, but the jury was still out for Christmas Day.
In several places in the United States there are caves that attract people to come and see these natural wonders. I have been to the Gardner Cave on the east edge of the state twice.
The first steps have been taken toward preventing the National Security Agency from collecting information in bulk through phone records and other metadata.
Last week, I had the opportunity to help Santa Claus navigate the streets of Omak and Okanogan as he brought Christmas cheer to area children and collected donations for area food banks.
Major League Baseball is in the process of installing a rule that would ban collisions at home plate. Although the new rule could be implemented as soon as the upcoming baseball season, the more plausible time frame is for a 2015 launch. The move parallels what the National Football League has been pushing for several years with regards to reducing concussions.

Help is on the way for folks who feel obligated to comment on, “like” or repost every little scrap of minutiae that lands on their Facebook page. The folks at Google are seeking a patent for a program described as “automated generation of suggestions for personalized reactions in a social network,” the International Science Times website reports.
Books inform in laymen’s terms
I have been through my copy of Alt and Hyndman’s “Northwest Exposures” in an attempt to find a certain bit of knowledge but have run out of time.
Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a challenge from Internet retailer Amazon.com over its being forced by a state to collect sales tax, even though it didn’t have a physical presence in that state.
It’s that time of year again, when we shop for presents, load up the refrigerator and put up Christmas trees. We go to church, proclaim our good will toward each other and wish everybody we meet a Merry Christmas.
In some — OK, many — areas, Omak and the surrounding area lacks the amenities of big cities.
For nearly 50 years, the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree has been a holiday tradition in Washington, D.C. I’m proud to say this is the second time a tree from Washington state has been selected as the Capitol Christmas Tree.
