The Star - News, views and advertising of the Grand Coulee Dam Area

Coulee Medical Center ER and Walk-In Care

How would you answer Kate?



Approached by someone who knew nothing about the area you live in, how would you answer them if asked for the most important facts they should know before or during a visit to the area we call home?

That’s the essence of a question asked by Kate, who plans to bicycle through the area in August on a cross-country trek with a large group of bicyclists — all the way from Providence, Rhode Island.

“I was wondering if there was any information you think visitors should know about Grand Coulee,” Kate wrote in a recent email to The Star.

That’s a broad question with a lot of potential answers, the basis of the format for the special section found in this issue for many readers.

Subscribers to The Star will find in this issue “The Grand Coulee Dam Area Visitors’ Guide 2016.” Its question-and-answer format was conceived long ago to answer questions commonly asked by people like Kate. But this is a new age with new capabilities, which we embrace.

Where our printed visitor guide leaves off, our online blog picks up at We’d like your help with it.

The intent of the online product is to offer visitors updates on what’s happening right now and to explore in greater depth the topics that will keep them (and you) interested. This week, for example, we’ll post about this weekend’s music festival at Sunbanks Lake Resort.

But that doesn’t answer Kate’s more timeless question. How would you answer her? We’d like to know.

If you’d like to tell us, feel free to write in, answer in the comments section online or in the comments to this article on our Facebook page at, or our Twitter feed, @culestar.

Oh, and take a look at this year’s visitors’ guide, just to get you started.
