WENATCHEE ― The likelihood of Chelan and Douglas counties being composed of sizable numbers of “have and have-not” residents in the future is real if current economic trends continue, according to a Community Needs Assessment released this week by the Chelan-Douglas Community Action Council. Over...
Publisher's note: This letter was far too long to publish in the print edition but does raise some interesting arguments against public transit service so we offer it here     There is a bit of humor among many bus drivers at a major transit agency, regarding passengers they see literally hopping...
Over seven years ago, a group of concerned community members in the Leavenworth area formed the Immigration Justice Group in response to the needs within our immigrant community. The impetus for our work has become more evident in recent years, as anti-immigrant fervor has reached a fever pitch....
Dear Mr. Moffett and Mr. Sutherland, I’m certain you have been listening to of the all the vocal oppositions presented and repeated by community individuals and the Friends of Leavenworth but, I’d like to offer another perspective that maybe worth pondering.
