    Folks: I wanted to share that Carolyn Long is one of 4 candidates who have filed for WA #3 Representative position currently held by Jamie Herrea Buetler. Carolyn is certainly qualified academically: she is a WSU-Vancouver political science professor who specializes in civics. But what I really want to share is this: she actually includes “Dark…[Read more]

    We need to hire a crew to help us with some forest maintenance/fire hazard reduction. Anyone have recommendations?
    Thanks!
    Jenn

    • Hi, Jenn:
      In the fall 2015 we had Miguel Garcia and crew work here quite a few days on our 20-acre property. This was in conjunction with the DNR’s cost-sharing program (up to 50% reimbursement) “to promote forest health and fire suppression“. Our neighbor, Jesse Calkins (recently retired from the DNR), assisted us with the appli…[Read more]

      • Jenn, I second that. Miguel and Brothers Garcia are good to work with, hard workers, and have good experience.

      • Marisa and Barbara,

        Thanks for the recommendation. Jesse Caulkins had given us Miguels information as well, but we had trouble pinning him down. We have cost share funds as well. Given your recommendations we’ll double down on our efforts to get his attention!

        Best!
        Jenn

        • I did try to reach him awhile back and got no return call, not sure what’s going on there. If you do get him, I’m sure he’ll be very reliable. Good luck!

    • Miguel and his crew are the hardest working most dependable people I’ve seen. I plan to bring them back to do some trail work. The number I have for him is 509-261-0646.

    • Hello! Just adding in to the ideas here: With Jesse Calkins’ retirement, Dan Lennon is the new contact for DNR cost-share in this area: Daniel Lennon at 509-773-5588 or daniel.lennon@dnr.wa.gov. He’s out of Goldendale but covering the west end of the County now.

      And Underwood Conservation District has a free mobile chipping service starting…[Read more]

  • The Klickitat County Fire District #3 is looking for volunteers for their Citizens Advisory Council. It would be great to have more representation from the Snowden Area. Are you willing to join us in supporting the Fire Department? Please respond here and we can call you with more information. Thanks so much.

    Anyone check out the nextdoor.com Snowden/Bates? I don’t like signing up for stuff on the www. Prefer to hear some opinions/experiences first.

    • Hi, Brian, et. al.:
      Yeah, Googled ‘nextdoor” myself earlier today. It’s a private social network with mixed comments/concerns. Also, the BBB has more negative than positive reviews. Strongly suggest anyone considering signing up (we are not) to first evaluate the pros and cons. Richard P. S. Doesn’t/couldn’t/shouldn’t the Snowden Com…[Read more]

    • P.P.S. Also wonder who paid for the mailing to every Snowden resident, and why? R

    • I signed up for it a long time ago but forgot about it until this last year it became active with people in my corner of Snowden. What I like about it is that it’s fairly immediate. I get an email when someone posts, which is usually about worrisome subjects. Like when the planned burn on Burdoin flamed up from wind many of my neighbors posted…[Read more]

  • I’m interested in connecting with other horse owners in the Snowden area. I have a 11 year old Quarter Horse gelding that I’m working with for trail riding. It’s good to have horse friends nearby. Thank you.

  • The PUD Commissioners meeting is this Tuesday 2:00 in Goldendale. Solar net metering reimbursement will be discussed. If the Commissioners reduce this reimbursement the opportunity for solar development in Klickitat County will plummet. Solar jobs will go away and the opportunity for future jobs will be non-existent. Now is the time to pay…[Read more]

    • Did you/anyone go to the meeting? We were gone. Any interesting info? Please share. Thanks.

      • Tom & I went to the Commissioners’ meeting on Tuesday. It was well attended with lots of positive input for solar and recommendations not to alter the net metering rate. The Commissioners did not directly address our concerns but stated that the PUD had encouraged sokar. It was pointed out to them that reducing the net metering rate may well…[Read more]

  • I just found the following Facebook message, “Kim M Larsen January 1 at 9:53am. Anybody I know on Snowden Rd who may be missing their golden retriever or know ego this beautiful pooch my belong to? Becky, Scott” Hopefully this is old news and the dog is safely back home.

    • Not sure if this was Cody. He has been staying home or visiting w/Family downtown. Thanks for posting here. We want to thank the Sears Family for helping Cody out a while back. He”d been torn up pretty good by other dogs.

  • Snowden Community Council meets on Thursday evening, January 4th at the Cherry Lane Fire Station. Even if you can’t make it you may want to read the minutes from both the November and December meetings. Each had Community Forum guests that provided lots of information to council members and residents. Dave Sauter was at the November meeting and…[Read more]

    • Thanks, Judy! Where do we find those minutes? I don’t see anything posted on this website for 2017 except for the month of April (under Resources/Info>Snowden Council>Snowden Council Minutes) but maybe I’m looking in the wrong place. Or the minutes haven’t been approved and posted yet.

  • Gina McCabe will be at the WS Library on Thursday 3pm-4pm. Bring your thoughts.

  • Hello fellow Snowdenites. I don’t post here very often but I thought this was newsworthy. Our friend near Cherry Lane discovered a cougar holding his dog by the head yesterday. He spooked it with a gunshot. Today he tracked it to his checken coop. When he opened the door, there it was surrounded by dead chickens. He shot and killed the…[Read more]

  • I just had a solid light brown maybe palomino horse visit my house on tunnel. After rolling around in the snow for a bit it went back out on Tunnel. If you know who’s horse it might be please let them know its loose and in the Tunnel area near the gate to the Kreps trail/road. road.

  • Anyone need their piano tuned? I’m scheduling a master piano tuner to come to my house. He’s very talented and very reasonably priced. Since he’s coming up all this way, it’d be great if he could tune some other pianos in the area. We all are a bit out of the way, and he’s coming from Vancouver. So if you’ve got a piano you’ve neglected, I’d…[Read more]

    • Hi Scott,
      This is Duncan’s wife, Shannon~
      We have a paint that needs tuning!
      All sounds Great.
      Let us know time frame, and we will make it work!
      Best,
      Shannon (& Duncan)

      • Shannon,
        Mark has been trying to get in touch with you. He’s coming from Vancouver, so it really helps for him to be able to consolidate his tunings in this area. If you’re still interested, please let him know.
        Thanks!
        Scott

    • For all those who need a piano tuned, please use this Doodle poll to indicate ALL the days that work for you. https://doodle.com/poll/7uq7bsuycmut5mvw
