Mary Rea | Gardening catalogs are sprouting

Each year about this time an avalanche of gardening catalogs cascades into my mailbox. I avidly pour through them, folding back page corners and circling items to order. In Mazama, where the temperature can stay below freezing for weeks on end, seed catalogs are a promise of good things to come.

Mary Rea | Long live leftovers!

Did you see that news item about the 16-year-old can of soup found in the back of a refrigerator at the Chicago EPA office? I can beat that. The other day, while sorting though a box we’ve been storing for a grown son, I came across a Milky Way candy bar with a sell-by date of 1985.

In school district 350, which includes Mazama, Winthrop, Twisp and Carlton, there are about 1,700 households. There are also approximately 170 organizations in need of money.
