Princess Bowcutt bake sale to be held Saturday

Bald Eagle Days are this weekend in Cathlamet

DRY SPELL--Last Friday was the beginning of the burn ban for our area, and with all this dry weather we've been having, and blazes all over the western states, it's definitely not the time to be lighting a fire to burn any brush. As we head into...

 

Flea Market Saturday at the fairgrounds

PRETTY NICE--The first weekend in July was pretty doggone nice, as we had temperatures in the 70's and a nice breeze, so that was much more to my liking than those higher temps we had a short while ago. It was also looking dry for the big 4th of July...

Open mic night at Grange on Friday

A MIX--We had some pretty warm days last weekend, but by the time you read this, it's supposed to have cooled down and maybe even rained, so we have really had some "yo-yo" weather around here lately! Umbrellas for shade one day and wearing...

 

Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend

White Tail Run takes place this Saturday

SO-SO--This past weekend was Mother's Day weekend and I hope everyone had an enjoyable time in spite of some of the weather we had. We seemed to take turns between sun breaks and rain showers, some of which were quite heavy, so it really depended on...

 

Remember Mom on this Sunday

Music at the Grange Hall Saturday night

OFF AND ON--Last Friday was a gorgeous day and some folks were even enjoying a nice Saturday right from the start, but for those of us here in Skamokawa, it began as a cool, drippy, cloudy and well, not all that great of a beginning. Luckily, by...

 

Photography exhibit to open Sunday

SOGGY--As this week begins, it's a very soggy Sunday indeed. Saturday saw some breaks in the rain at least, but if you ask me, Sunday was just a good day to hunker down and stay put inside where it was nice and dry! The week looks to be fairly soggy...

 

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...

Lots of events set for this weekend

We may still see some winter weather events

CHANGES--I think all of us in this area could agree that last Friday, Feb. 17, was just a gorgeous day! It was a "get outside, take a walk, hoorah for the sunshine" kind of day; very nice! Of course, then came Saturday, and the clouds and drippy weat...
