Election coverage

Since neither the state nor county produce a voter's pamphlet that covers local races, the Ferry County View will be publishing a voter's guide and mailing it for free to all residents of Ferry County on October 13, the day the general election ballots are mailed by the Auditor's office. In last month's View, we invited readers to submit questions to be asked of the candidates, many of which the candidates will be answering in the voter's guide. The guide will also feature a brief description of the responsibilities and salary of each office, and if space permits we will publish election-related letters to the editor and general statements from candidates. We invite readers to submit all letters to the editor through our contact page on this website or drop them by our office at 771 S Keller St. in Republic. Letters that are not published will appear on our website.

Your business

We hope you enjoy reading the "Your Business" column each month in the View. Writer Sikander Jaad began the column with a series of instructional articles about business plans, marketing, customer service and other topics of concern to business professionals. She then embarked on a series of business profiles, interviewing local businesspeople to get their takes on the challenges and joys of doing business in Ferry County. It's important to note that while the instructional series and the interview series fall under the same "Your Business" heading, Ms. Jaad intends in the profiles to simply tell the interviewee's story without comment or critique. She continues the interview series this month with an excellent sketch of Hamilton's Shoot-N-Irons co-owner Jack Hamilton.

Cell Phone Etiquette PDF Print E-mail

Dear Ferry Godmother,

Maybe I'm becoming just an old fuddy duddy, but the manners displayed by many cell phone users today seem downright rude. I've been present with grown adults who stopped their in-person conversation with me to talk on a cell phone to a distant caller. My grown children sometimes type messages into their phones as they blankly nod, pretending to listen while I'm speaking. They interrupt church services, funerals, weddings--you name it. Shouldn't a live person always have priority in conversations?

Hey everyone! Welcome to this month’s Cowboy Corner! I’ve been getting a lot of questions about what products I use to keep my horses in tip-top shape, so this month I wanted to touch on a few products that I won’t let my prize pony go without.

Every individual income tax return asks for your filing status. Are you married or single or what?

Seems like a simple question, but in tax law, things are usually not simple.


The first question is, when? IRS doesn’t care how long you were in a particular “status.” They just want to know what your “status” was on December 31st of last year. So if you got married on New Year’s Eve, you file as “Married” for the whole year. If you were divorced on New Year’s Eve, you cannot file as “Married."

If you drive onto the Curlew Job Corps campus, you may see a group of physically fit students in red t-shirts and Carhartt jeans moving materials, pouring cement, or sighting a transit for an excavation site. These are the students of the Construction Craft Laborers Pre-Apprenticeship program, a popular trade taught by Darald Staley and Bob Ruklic.

You know these young men and women by the local projects they've worked on, such as the Republic Episcopal Church of the Redeemer (the "stone church") and the carousel building at the Ferry County Fairgrounds.
