The June 2 edition of the Echo is much appreciated. Thank you. This issue is what a community needs and wants in a hometown newspaper: good writing, a focus on local and regional news, an events calendar, and recognition of citizens of our community. The focus on our fine Cascade High School...
In the most recent issue Bill Forhan, Publisher put a spotlight on what has been brewing with the current Mayor and City Council regarding the cities revenues and what organizations and their events really contribute. It appears that they have no real knowledge what Leavenworth is…it is tourist...
We “The People” are facing a real threat of losing our country. A look at any of the policies instituted by President Biden since his inauguration will tell us that he is not capable of leading this once great country. Illegal immigration is rampant; thousands of illegals cross our southern...
The seismic rumblings of the American continent these days are not earthquakes. They are the millions of our forebearers turning over in their graves at what we have done with America. Who among the pioneers of our culture would not be astonished at today’s concentration of wealth into so few hands...

I am responding to your Article April 21st on Affordable Housing and once again on this Merry Go Round, no one is addressing HUD Project Based Housing nor Section 8 Vouchers which would easily address the Housing Crisis in Leavenworth for Local Workers.  Is it because no Developer nor Owner wants...
I don’t want “the shot”, and no one can make me take one!  Why can’t I jay-walk?  As if that painted crosswalk would stop anything.  “No shirt, no shoes, no service”, what a concept!  I know how to swim, ergo, why do I need a life vest?  Don’t even get me started on those insane seat-belt rules. ...
