As we near the beginning of the Thanksgiving Holiday season, we wanted to give a special and well deserved thanks to the volunteer firefighters at Lake Wenatchee Fire and Rescue.  We are so blessed to have such a well-trained and responsive group to help us as our community continues to grow. After...
In answer to your recent editorial advising Democrats not to vote in this election, I believe it appropriate that you print these opinions from Thomas Friedman’s Oct. 23 column in the New York Times, written before the current pipe bomb scares.                   “In the midterm elections, vote for...
I am writing a rebuttal to your “In My Opinion” article on “Fighting for the Soul of America” from Oct. 17, 2018 as it contains several false claims. The Kavanaugh hearings did not prove Kavanaugh to be innocent no matter what the President says. The harsh truth is the physical evidence of a sexual...
  Support Ann Diamond  Ann Diamond is the kind of person we would all be proud to call our representative in Olympia.   She embodies the independent, gritty, selfless determination that represents the best of small town America.  An entrepreneur with a calling to serve, Ann built the first medical...

At that depth it allows then for a short pedestrian tunnel about 1 city block in length going under the highway into the...
  The Friends of Leavenworth affirm the cautionary tale of “Killing the Goose that Lays the Golden Eggs” that Bill Forhan mentioned in his August 29th editorial. Our concern is that growing our tourism industry over and above what our infrastructure can handle will end up squashing that Goose under...
  Over the last two years, I have watched unmitigated growth adversely affect my neighborhood and community. Although I have attended literally dozens of city council and planning commission meetings, it was not until the Adventure Park issue came to the forefront that I began to see community...
  I am writing about the traffic during the Christmas Lighting Festivals. We live here, and enjoy the town with all its lights.  However, we have experienced, this last year, the difficulty of traveling out of town, or trying to get back into town at the time the lights go on, and after. It is...
  Recently it was reported in the “Echo” that there is talk of putting in an “Adventure Park” on the corner of Hwy 2 & Icicle. It is my belief that we are looking at huge traffic & pedestrian problem that will only get worse if the park is built. This park would be much too close to the...
