Dr. Bill Dienst | Aid to refugees is a moving target

When the mass migration to Europe via Greece and other destinations pinnacled a year or so ago, the world was caught off guard. Politicians in the USA and Europe and their client tyrants and renegades in the region had felt free up until this point to prosecute their endless wars in the Middle East. They have had minimal concern for the disastrous humanitarian consequences and the blowback that would result.

Leavenworth Ski Hill 1

Susan Ballinger | Leavenworth Ski Hill: Bursting with blooms and birds

The snow is long gone at Leavenworth Ski Hill where formerly white ski slopes are blanketed with green thickets and splashes of color. Each week in spring, a new wave of wildflowers come into bloom and several new species of migratory birds arrive back to their summer home and birdsong fills the air. Managed by the U.S. Forest Service and open to the public year-round, visitors find themselves just minutes from busy Highway 2, but miles away in spirit once they walk into the forest.

Wenatchi P'Squosa Territory

Wendell George | The Wenatchi (P'Squosa) Territory

In the fall of 1980, Moses George rode on horseback through the NW part of the Wenatchi (P’Squosa) Territory. He and T.B. Charley, another tribal member, were asked by the U.S. Forest Service to look for areas that had previously grown huckleberries. They rode to the Chiwawa Ridge along Raging Creek from the Chiwawa River Road. Chiwawa Ridge is about 2,300 feet elevation with Twin Lakes of Raging Creek and School Lake to the north. Moses was on Dusty, a Forest Service horse, as he overlooked the valley.
