    And ‘snow it begins’ for active winter
    Thanksgiving day is the unofficial start of the snowmobile season. This fourth Thursday of the month, the caravan from points east snakes through downtown before light breaks and heads out Three Creek Road the 11 miles to the Upper Sno-Park. By 6:15 a.m. there are already 13 rigs being unloaded. Within an hour, some 50 are packed up in the plowed lot. The later arrivals I am told needed a thermos refill at Dutch Bros, who strained to keep up with orders.

  • Christmas tree hunting in a COVID world
    Christmas tree hunting in a COVID world
    Like most everything in 2020, Christmas is looking to be a bit different this year. For many who heeded COVID warnings, Thanksgiving already fell victim to the rampaging virus, with infections skyrocketing in Deschutes County, most of Oregon, and the nation as a whole.
  • Making the most of limited instruction
    Making the most of limited instruction
    The three themes undergirding the work of Sisters School District — Belong, Prepare, Inspire — are harder to accomplish during the battle with COVID-19 and the resultant distance learning. The teachers of Sisters middle and high schools are doing all they can to safely offer person-to-person interaction through what is known as “limited in-person instruction” under the state’s “Ready School, Safe Learners” guidelines.
  • Staying in business amid pandemic
    Staying in business amid pandemic
    Two weeks ago, Governor Kate Brown announced the most extensive set of restrictions since the March Stay-at-Home order, in order to combat a surge in COVID-19 cases in Oregon. Some businesses closed — like restaurants, bars, and gyms — and gatherings are limited to no more than six people. Grocery and retail stores are open but capped at 75 percent of normal occupancy.
  • HolyCow helps children internationally
    HolyCow helps children internationally
    What began as a desire for Sisters residents Jared and Crystal Vogt to feed their family healthier food turned into a mission to help children overseas.
