Spring sports are up and running

HALF AND HALF--Last Thursday was totally awesome, and that sunshine sure perked everybody up for awhile. It also meant it was time for me to get out there and get at those flower beds, which I truly felt the next day! Friday was a different story as...

Celebrate St. Paddy's Day in Skamokawa

NASTY START--This past weekend began with a miserable start, as it rained and then blew some, and rained again. Luckily, we had a real nice break on Sunday, and it was terrific to see the sun shining, the river glistening, and out here in West...

Lots of events set for this weekend

COLD SHOT--This past weekend we had another little cold spell, and yes, we did indeed see some snow falling but it didn't last too long down here. Beaver Creek had four new inches of snow by Sunday morning, so I was glad it was up there and not down...

Crab & oyster feed at Norse Hall Saturday

MUCH DIFFERENT--This past weekend we saw some sunshine and much more pleasant conditions than the last one. No white stuff, yeah! It was nice to catch a break after all the snow and rain, which led to road closures and tons of trees coming down, so...

Redmen Hall to reopen March 4

NOT NICE--The weekend began with lots of rain and temps in the 40s, so when I went to bed on Saturday night to pouring rain and 45 degree temps, I didn't think much of it, other than I knew I'd wake up to a "lake" Sunday morning. Well, I did wake up...

Valentine dinner will be at Grange Saturday

MILDER/THEN COLD?--We had a few days of warmer temperatures around here but still had some freezing mornings in West Valley, so it hasn't exactly been a heat wave! Still, it's certainly better than the massive flooding, snowfalls and freezing rain...

Crab & oyster feed Saturday in Rosburg

Celebrate the new year responsibly

NOT BAD--If you were hanging around this area during Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, the weather was quite co-operative, as it wasn't pouring, snowing, freezing or blowing, so I was pretty happy with the "just dreary looking" weather, as it wasn't a...

More donations will be most appreciated

COLD ENOUGH?--By the time you read this, we are supposed to have warmed up a little bit; I sure hope so! With puddles staying frozen and the snow that fell turning into hard crunchy ice, and temps in the teens at night here in West Valley, I am more...

More snow, ice may be coming our way

November may set a rainfall record

GRAY & WET--As we ended November, I think we broke a record for being one of the wettest Thanksgivings here at our house ever, as we had 3.89 inches of rain that day! Although there were many areas who were seeing a soggy day, I don't think there...

Turkey bingo Friday at J.A. Wendt school

Many Halloween events this weekend
