• The pile of discarded household items (refrigerator etc.) at the intersection of Snowden and Staats Roads seems to be growing. I don’t know whether someone is collecting things there and planning to dispose of them later, “offering” these items to passersby, or simply dumping them and expecting someone else to clean up the mess. In any case, it’s…[Read more]

    Anyone else experiencing slowdowns or gaps in mail delivery? We have noticed that Netflix DVDs seem to be taking 2-3 days longer to arrive than just a few months ago. Some days we get no mail at all, which is a noticeable change for us.

    • Hi Dawn, et. al.:
      Yes, we also have been quite disappointed with the decrease in quality of mail delivery the last couple of years or so. Among the changes: erratic delivery times (sometimes four or more hours later than was customary), no deliveries as anticipated (from the USPS daily e-mails to us*), considerably more items mis-delivered…[Read more]

      • Thanks for letting me know about Informed Delivery; it’s the first I’ve heard of it and it appears to be a free service.

        According to a chart I found online at USPS, Hamilton became postmaster of the White Salmon post office in April 2017. In September 2018, Elizabeth Slotterbeck was appointed Officer-in-Charge (which seems to be a de facto…[Read more]

        • We have experienced the same frustrating examples you site: no mail at all on some days which is completely out of the norm for us, much misdelivered mail, erratic delivery times. We were told by someone (sorry that I can’t remember who) that those who bid to become rural delivery carriers must pass tests much as the onsite employees do, but…[Read more]

    • We surely do understand the feeling of inadequacy expressed. We have Informed Delivery. Friday, we received the usual e-mail advising that we were to receive mail. NOTHING!!! I checked again Saturday morning to be sure the delivery was not super late and there still was nothing in the box. I do not believe that the delivery person ever…[Read more]

  • We have some “hold over” items from the day when we had five children in various stages of high school or beyond. It seemed we were spending many hours on very hard stadium bleachers. We have and no longer need;
    Folding seats that attach to bleachers and provide back rest. etc. There are two of them.
    Back pack style BEACH CHAIR
    These are free…[Read more]

      • Mind you, one megabit is 1/8 megabyte. Megabits are used for speed measurement to make the speed sound eight times faster to those non-geeky folks who don’t know a bit from a byte. In other words, most everyone.

  • Hi, Scott:
    RE: Email status
    The SCG website currently appears to be experiencing the same problem I’ve mentioned to you twice that’s sporadically been occurring over the last couple of years: I.e., we can’t get posted announcements automatically emailed to us. Whenever I click under either of the two links — “Get email updates…[Read more]

    • I had a few database updates to do. I’m hoping that was the problem. Can you give it another try?

      • Hi again, Scott:
        Yes, the “EmaiI Status/Email Options” choice that we personally selected ( “All Email”) now once again DOES appear to be operating property: it had “stuck” this time when I closed down and reopened the SCG website; and I just received an email (as I properly should have) of your posting on the website. THANKS AGAIN for h…[Read more]

  • Some years ago, I was involved in a very large communications engineering project. In order to get the primary actors together on a regular basis without all of us driving nearly 100 miles, we used internet meetings. It worked great and saved hundreds of bucks and dozens of hours. That life is now behind me ( I am retired) A short time ago, I came…[Read more]

  • Hello neighbors! I’m located up at the top of Snowden Rd, and I wanted to spread the word that that our ranch (pasture-raised specialty meats and eggs) is doing free home deliveries to addresses on Snowden and Bates Rd this year as part of our farm membership/CSA. I’ll keep this short and sweet, so please feel free check out our website…[Read more]

    • HI Neighbors! We have been members of Horseradish Ranch’s CSA, and we recommend it highly!

We are huge fans, and adore Horseradish…[Read more]

    We were trying to figure out how to clear our driveway back when we first got the big snow. We looked down the driveway and what to out wondering eyes should appear but our neighbor Dustin Dennis in a new (to him) road grader. Over the years, Dusty has done a fine job for us and we appreciate his efforts on our behalf. He lives on Sleepy Hollow…[Read more]

    A friend that lives on Staats Road let us know that he had identified a River Otter that has taken up residence in the pond that is near the intersection of Snowden Road and Staats Roads. The otter seems to be frequenting the east end. Great binocular viewing.

  • Update: This is Kevin Steven’s dog which would be down between the Y at Snowden-Bates Rd. by the Fire Station and the bottom of Locke Hill. Basically under the BPA Power Lines. She looks like a mid-smallish brown & black Collie type dog. So call if see. 509-493-2246.

  • Daughter just posted a missing dog along Snowden. Looks like a brown & black longish hair sm-mid size border collie. Named Sally and belongs to Kevin. Don’t know either, but someone up here may. Let me know if you see her 509-493-2246 and I will contact my daughter. Thanks.
