Our take on the news
Apparently, the mayor of Grand Coulee does not want his police department serving Electric City. That seems the most reasonable way to interpret his proposed tripling of the cost Grand Coulee charges Electric City for answering calls to Electric City. Why this might be is a matter for speculation.
On a more hopeful note, the same two cities will explore the possibility of effectively completing a nearly community-wide walking trail. Crossing the causeway and joining Electric City and Grand Coulee with a pedestrian pathway would enhance local life, make it safer and add an amenity that would be valued by anyone who might be considering a move here. In short, it would be a good investment. Let’s hope a way can be found to accomplish it.
Local climate signs indicate the fire season could be a bad one. We can never know, of course, until it either rains a lot or it doesn’t. But it’s unlikely we’ll get the amount of rain it would take to keep local tinder tender. Let’s be careful of sparks.
With plenty to do this weekend — Kids Fest, Cruizers’ car show, Lions barbecue and Saturday Market, let’s have some fun.
