Thumbs down to people who littered

Thumbs down to the folks who left garbage at the rope swing at Carey Lakes so that a young girl and her family not only had to look at it, but she felt compelled to clean it up. Please clean up after yourselves.

Thumbs up to surviving another Labor Day weekend

It was another great Labor Day weekend for the Kittitas County Fair and the Ellensburg Rodeo. The weather cooperated and events were enjoyed by visitors and local residents. And, thankfully, we have a whole year to get ready for the next Labor Day weekend.

Thumbs up to start of fall sport season

Another exciting year in high school sports kicks into gear this weekend. Football got underway Friday night for both Ellensburg and Cle Elum-Roslyn (Kittitas kicks off next Friday) and the Ellensburg cross county team hosts the annual Ellensburg Invitational today. Check out the schedules and cheer on your home team.

Thumbs up to Kittitas Valley Junior Soccer Association jamboree

Speaking of excitement, the annual season-opening KVJSA jamboree is today at Rotary Park in West Ellensburg. There will be hundreds of kids and their families at the park, which means you might have a hard time finding a parking space there this morning. The jamboree is a blast with all the age groups competing. Best of luck to all the young soccer players this weekend.
