I had worked in Africa for close to nine years. Some, in Nairobi, referred to me as Mazungu Mafrica, (White African), a moniker of honor bestowed upon me by those working in the public market as they had seen and talked with me so many times over the years prior.

In the May 12th issue of the Echo, Leavenworth’s Mayor wrote of his belief that our country is inherently racist. He gave one side of the story referencing two left-wing books of why this, in his mind, is true. I cannot disagree more! There is much evidence disputing his theory, and the feelings of...
A few weeks ago I wrote about the possibility of the Mayor and City Council wanting to do away with Oktoberfest. Well, that is exactly what they are wanting to do! I received the following notice from the city; and this is proof that they do not want Oktoberfest in Leavenworth. Notice they are only...

Who among the pioneers of our culture would not be astonished at today’s concentration of wealth into so few hands...
Thank you for the “Naked guy in yard is a short term renter” article, and thanks to Commissioner Tiffany Gering for that quote. However, lewd behavior, noise, drunkenness and nuisance issues expose only the tip of the iceberg of problems with short term rentals.   The primary problem is...

Jay Inslee on Tuesday made his most audacious assault yet on the state’s taxpayers, signing into a law an income tax disguised as a capital gains tax disguised as an excise tax. The measure, which taxes certain capital gains income exceeding $250,000 in a year at 7...
      In the first ten minutes of his first address to the Congress,       Joe Biden ramped-up the flattering process that politicians have       used forever to stir up support.       Joe said, “In America, we never ever, ever stay down.” But       our citizenry have been down socially (marital...
