Change is budding out all over


Change and rebirth are evident in more than the green buds on the trees in the coulee area.

With a bright new coffee shop to hang out in, Colorama around the corner, new educational programs in planning at local schools, and progress made toward raising money for a new school stage curtain, there’s plenty of freshly budding newness to talk about.

One other old thing is also new again: a fishing spot once favored by many has re-opened to public access. The rocks near the Third Powerhouse have been off limits since 9/11.

But one community-based, decades-long effort needs some help. The POWER (Promoters of Wildlife and Environmental Resources) group needs more volunteers to keep its super successful fish-raising net pen operation afloat. The story on the front page tells you how to contact them if you have a little time to help out.
