CANNABIS - yes or no?
Editor's note: David Asson is a Sisters City Councilor. He notes that all comments in this article are solely his own.

SPRD is turning 21
The Sisters Park & Recreation tax district turns 21 next year. We are eight long-time Sisters Country residents who helped raise the Sisters Park & Recreation District since its infancy.

For the community of Sisters, the saying "it takes a village" not only applies to the villagers but also to the public entities that serve the village.

Choosing an electric car is not about battery recycling
After reading the well-written electric car article by Ethan Ferwalt, I realized that the article was actually about lithium-ion battery toxicity, hazards, and lack of recycling and should not be interpreted as: "electric vehicles are bad."
