Another idea for the middle school

There is a letter to the editor this week suggesting the old middle school become Grand Coulee’s new city hall. What a waste of space that would be. It seems that this is the perfect opportunity for a community center, which could include most any...

Disappointed in new laser show

If Saturday night was the entire new light show (as it didn’t start until about 10:30 instead of 10 and was over by 11), I am truly disappointed. I had heard it was much longer than the old one. The story is fantastic! The pictures and wording...

How about a buzzer?

Having had two evening visits to our nice, up-to-date hospital emergency room, the first time I went there was no one to be seen, so I pulled the door open. Now when the front door is locked for the night, there is a sign saying, please KNOCK, do...
