ASPIRE helps students plan for future
For many of us, fall means experiencing cool, crisp mornings, raking leaves, and preparing for the coming holidays.

Summer reading works!
If there's one thing I've learned in the 90-some-odd years I've been traipsing around on this beautiful old planet Earth, it's the incredible value of libraries. The current one that's large in my life is, of course, our own Sisters Library which is part of the Deschutes Public Library System.

Climate from a tree's perspective
Do you know the difference between weather and climate?

Weather is what is happening outside your window right now and might happen in the next few days; climate is a description of atmospheric conditions over longer periods of time.

Whispers from the past...
Recently, the members of the Three Sisters Historical Society board were treated to a day spent exploring the former Edgington Ranch located south of town, with descendants of Ellis and Ellen Edgington.

What makes it special is the abundance of vegetation normally seen on the west side of the Cascades - towering Douglas fir trees, a large spring-fed pond surrounded by lush green plants, grasses, and dense stands of horsetail reeds.

Opening up old memories
It's hard to believe that December will be my first anniversary of leaving Sisters Folk Festival and starting my career as a full-time writer. I've been asked many times, "How's retirement?" I feel compelled to say that I'm not retired. I just left one job to start another. If I was retired, we'd be traveling often, taking up new hobbies, or dusting off old ones.
