Marijuana for sale
Marijuana went on sale in the state of Washington in early August as part of the initiative that voters passed in 2012.
Marijuana went on sale in the state of Washington in early August as part of the initiative that voters passed in 2012.
Pot, green, Chronic, herb, reefer or bud; by another name, marijuana is now legal for recreational use.
Whether it's called ganga, MaryJane, weed or even wacky tobacky, Washington state residents voted to permit the recreational use of marijuana in the 2012 General Election.
Since then, state officials have been working out the details of how marijuana will be grown, processed and sold within state lines.

State revokes, suspends licenses, certifications, registrations of health care providers
The Washington State Department of Health has revoked or suspended the licenses, certifications, or registrations of health care providers in our state. The department has also immediately suspended the credentials of people who have been prohibited from practicing in other states.
The department's Health Systems Quality Assurance Division works with boards, commissions and advisory committees to set licensing standards for more than 80 health care professions (e.g., medical doctors, nurses, counselors).

No jumbo jets yet, but airport planning to grow
While it may never see Boeing 787s the way Moses Lake's airport does, Pangborn Memorial Airport still has big plans for its future.
The Wenatchee Valley's largest airstrip is still too small for some planes. A planned runway extension might at least increase the number and size of the aircraft that currently use it, the airport's director Trent Moyers said at a Port of Chelan County meeting in Cashmere.

Federal disaster aid approved, but individual assistance denied
Following recent devastating wildfires across the state of Washington, residents had hoped they might receive federal aid, but they were denied such assistance, at least initially.
While the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency did make federal disaster aid available to state, tribal and eligible local governments, what has drawn greater attention from those in the state of Washington is the denial of Gov. Jay Inslee's request for Individual Assistance.

Letters to the Editor
Religious freedom

I have just read a right to life update in our church bulletin, and the shocking truth is that the era of comfortable Christianity is over, where ever young people with brains attempted to start a pro-life group in a high school it became necessary to involve Lawyers. At three Universities young men and woman have filed law suites against their administrations for unfair treatment of their Students for Life groups.

Racism alive and festering across America
Presumption of innocence is not a right specifically enumerated in our Constitution. It is in fact a recognized right in common law that precedes our Constitution's bill of rights and can be found in human legal jurisprudence all the way back to the Roman Empire. In other words, it has long been recognized as a fundamental principle of fairness in most civilized societies. So why are we still arguing about it today?

Farewell my friends
My last day with NCW Media; the Lake Chelan Mirror and the Quad City Herald is this week, Aug. 28.

My first day on the job here I remember thinking how friendly everyone was. While that's still true, it's only making my decision to leave that much harder. When I first arrived in Chelan, the first thing I noticed was the beautiful lake, of course, and the neat and tidy little town.
