Area residents who want to cut down on bug bites should attend budget meetings
Many middle and high school students today consider it a rite of passage to have a Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram, Skype, MySpace, Twitter or other social media account. My own daughter believes all the “cool” kids have one.
This weekend’s event provides a new, much-needed opportunity for the community to build on. We hope it encourages other “promoters” to try to bring concerts, comedians, sports, religious and other programs and events to Omak.
How do you measure schools? Which ones produce students who excel? Which ones aren’t making the grade?
With so much going on, we’re sure you won’t want to miss this year’s Okanogan County Fair.
There’s nothing like an injury to remind you of one of the first things you learn in kindergarten — follow directions.

We bring this to the attention of visitors here to celebrate rodeo, horse racing, Jet Ski racing, concerts and fireworks.

The night was Thursday, July 17. A firestorm was coming, but Pateros residents didn’t know it until it was too late.

Okanogan County Commissioners Jim DeTro, Ray Campbell and Sheilah Kennedy didn’t mince words when they laid the blame for the catastrophic fires squarely on state government.
Amid the ashes and debris of the Carlton Complex wildfires, heroes rise.
I enjoy eating seafood as much as the next guy. But the assumptions Gov. Jay Inslee made last week about how much fish we eat is a bit ridiculous.
