The Spirit of America Memorial arrived in Cashmere to a quick parade and a heartfelt ceremony. The memorial now goes into storage until Sept. 11, 2015.

Council mulling pay raise
Spurred by the words of former council candidate Dave Hobbs, the City Council will study the possibility of raising the stipends of its member and the mayor.

Hobbs, on the night of his second attempt at earning an appointment to city council, suggested that more people would be more willing to run for city council if the job paid a little better.

Right now, council members make about $100 every month, and the mayor makes about $400 per month, before taxes.

Both current and former occupants of the cozy chairs around the big table at City Hall said they welcomed the idea.

"It is long overdue," said Donna Wynne, a business owner and former council member. "Especially the mayor, my gosh, it's a full-time job and $400 a month is just chicken feed."

Valison: Ask the citizens for the raise
Former Cashmere mayor George Valison said citizens should have the final word on whether the council and current mayor Jeff Gomes should get a raise.

"Depending on the economy of the community, can we afford it?" he asked. "With all the expenses of the sewage plant and so on."

Cashmere is building a new wastewater treatment plant on the same spot its current one sits. The current councilmembers should weigh this and other expenses before deciding on a pay raise.

When curling means caring
For one day a week, the years melt away and the health problems don't matter.

For one day a week, a group of women residents of the Cashmere Convalescent Center get to feel what it's like to have an honest-to-goodness good hair day.

Two women have been making these good hair days possible for more than 20 years for free. They spend each Wednesday morning setting curlers and combing and brushing until the ladies' hair look just so.

Eloise Day, 92, and Patty Lindaberry, 66, never set foot in a beautician's or hairdresser's or cosmetologist's school, but they have done it enough -on themselves and on others- to know what looks good.

Chiwaukum, Hansel fires push toward wilderness
As members of the Southern Area Red Team, the national level incident management team managing the Chiwaukum Complex Fires, held a community meeting last week at Cascade High School, one thing was a clear as their southern accents. The Chiwaukum Complex fires are going to be with us for awhile, probably until the snow flies.

For one thing, the hot, dry weather is going to continue, according to team meteorologist, John Pelton, along with a continuing threat of thunderstorms and lightning.

Twenty-five gallons. Two hundred needles and countless sugar cookies.
