In my book, the view of Mount Olympus from the High Divide is one of the most glorious scenes anywhere, ever. We’re looking south across the broad Hoh River valley, but it feels like we could stretch an arm out and make designs in the Snow Dome with our finger.
As ballot counting continues in the 2016 primary, here are a few story lines emerging from the results already in hand:
Sequim resident Harvey Martin is no stranger to responding to emergencies. Earlier this year, however, the 89-year-old was on the other end of some critical help.
Looks like the next school bond is getting ready to leave the station. That is, if the school board can get on board.

What makes a community? What makes this community — our community? What is the emotional connection we feel toward this place — what do we love about our community?

Several years ago, a development team met with city staff to discuss a conceptual development plan for a large property ownership at the south city limits between Seventh Avenue and River Road. That discussion evolved into a formal subdivision application for 48 acres of that ownership — Legacy Ridge — last summer.
Alana Linderoth, our “cub” reporter since her start date back in April of 2014, has — much to our chagrin — left our fair newspaper.
I kept expecting the Pony Express to arrive any minute to deliver the results of the Washington State Democratic Presidential primary contest. Is the process of selecting candidates for the highest office in the land this old-fashioned in our technological age?
We are disappointed that the Clallam County PUD Board of Commissioners voted against supporting Initiative 732, a measure designed to accelerate the switch to affordable clean energy.
Washington’s next economic development plan may be written by Oregon voters next November.
As I write this, the sun is blazing hot. But the forecast for Friday — when you will walk across the stage and transform from Sequim student to student of the world — is rain.
If you’ve never tried to pull off a debate, it’s hard to appreciate the degree of difficulty involved in such a feat.
Why do we live here? What brought us here — what attracted us to Sequim? Why do we stay?
Are we collectively losing our minds or is it just me? Don’t answer that.
"I am deeply disappointed that the tribal and state salmon co-managers were unable to reach agreement on a joint package of fishing seasons for Puget Sound this year."
"The personal nature of politics was on display last week in Washington."
