Last week, World reporter K.C. Mehaffey wrote about some innovative efforts that the Methow Valley Sport Trails Association is making to increase the number of visitors to the valley and serve the local community better. MVSTA took some risks by expanding free skiing from youths 13 and under to 17 and under. They launched a pilot program that allows so-called fat bikes on the trails to expand the types of winter use, and over the last several years they expanded the trails that can be skied with dogs. This is not an organization that is afraid to change.

The problem goes beyond guns I am writing this letter because, although my heart is full of pain and sympathy for all of the families who have lost their loved ones in the past few months to such violent acts, it angers me to the point that my blood boils every time I turn on my TV and radio.

SHIBA has the answers It’s mid-September, days are getting shorter, and we’re starting to think about special days we celebrate as the year winds down. For a lot of folks Open Enrollment starts on Oct. 15 when they can compare their current medical plan or Rx plan to those available for 2013 to make sure they are still in the best plan for them. Some have not compared plans for several years and may be paying much more than they need for their prescriptions because plans change the list of approved drugs, copays, and premiums. Without comparing plans during open enrollment, they will not have a chance to be in the plan that fits their needs best.
Where’d he go? The East Wenatchee 4-year-old was in the house, right there with his mom, and then he was gone, Douglas County Sheriff Harvey Gjesdal reported Wednesday.
Points well taken I was very pleased to read Karen Allen’s recent letter to the Safety Valve (May 16) titled “Medical research needs support.” I am in full agreement with her that we should all support medical research.
A second mistake I commonly see is inconsistency — inconsistent meals, inconsistent schedules, inconsistent application of rules, inconsistent discipline. Consistency makes everything easier because there is no second guessing and therefore no argument. Consistency builds habits, and habits lead to automatic behavior.
“Melody” has been my best friend since we were in the fourth grade. (We’re now in our 30s.) Over the past few years, Melody’s life has changed. She separated from her husband, lives alone and shares custody of their three children. She started dating almost immediately after her separation, going out with almost anyone who showed her a little attention. She’s now involved with a man who told her he’s bisexual and has never taken her out on a date. (Still, he never hesitates to call and ask her to clean his bathroom or cook him a meal.) She’s always crying on my shoulder because she ends up with losers, yet the picture she has on her profile on all the dating sites shows her in a skimpy bikini.
