The North Palouse Washington eNewscast editor is taking a short vacation and will not be publishing local news for the couple of weeks.

Meanwhile, to keep you entertained, and help locate calendars of June events, the following links will take you to several Palouse-region towns.

Start with Oakesdale, Wash., it's one of the oldest communities in the state of Washington, and its Local attractions include the historical Flour Mill, Steptoe Butte, the museum, and the John F. Kelley Homestead Cabin built in 1872, http://www.oakesdale.org/. Oakesdale was once the junction of three major railroads; The Great Northern, The Northern Pacific, and the Union Pacific.

When you click on The North Palouse Washington eNewscast TOWN page, you can hop to an individual town's information. Some is pretty skimpty, though.

However, there are other ways to learn about the Palouse, and Palouse happenings.

Here are a few examples to start exploring:

Fairfield Community Center has a fascinating history that you'll find at, http://fairfieldwacc.org/history/.

Garfield, http://www.garfieldwa.com/events.htm. A RSS feed scrolls on the left side of the page, keeping you informed.

Palouse has a wealth of interesting information, and their local events are found here, http://www.visitpalouse.com/events.html,

Rockford's calendar of events is on the town's website, http://www.rockfordwa.com/index.php/calendar. Click on the event for more detailed information.

The quickest way to learn what's going on at Rosalia, is to call city hall, (509) 523-5991 or email: clerk@townofrosalia.org, or visit City Hall & Museym, 110 W. 5th St.

Tekoa has a newsletter, but if you really want to know something, it's best to phone city hall, (509) 284-3861. http://www.tekoawa.com/.

St. John has a website, http://www.stjohnwa.com/, and also an events calendar on the website.

Many times you will learn a whole lot more by simply typing the name of the town into a search engine, followed by [wa] -- washington abbrefiation without the brackets.

Stay happy, and keep reading online until the editor returns. 

Thanks for your patience!
