Wahl to Wall: OK Theatre back in business after remodel

Wahl is editor of the Chieftain.

My column got pulled last week because of space constraints. I’m a bit worried that not one person called to ask if it was going to continue to appear.

I’m beginning to wonder if anyone reads this column or perhaps our readers thought leaving it out was an oversight on our part.

This week, I spent several days at a regional training with Rotary International in Seattle. That left my time for column-writing a bit truncated.

It was nice to wake up to sun Monday morning after living in Seattle’s clouds, rain and snow for a spell.

I’m not sure that’s something I could adjust to.

YOUR FIRST opportunity to see the newly remodeled OK Theatre will be March 4 when the Stringdusters take the stage. Darrell Brann and his crew have been working like beavers on steroids to complete the work.

If you’ve ever remodeled anything, you know the pitfalls that can crop up. And with a building as old as the OK, there were probably more than a few.

Stringdusters are a terrific group, so it should be a great night of fun and music. See you there.

PREPARING AND editing content for the 2018 Wallowa County Visitor’s Guide has reminded me of the busy spring, summer and fall ahead.

We expanded the calendar portion a bit this year to provide better descriptions about the events. In previous years, we’ve only published an event name, assuming that everyone knows what each event is all about.

We also have some absolutely amazing and stunning photography going into this year’s edition. It will be a work of art, I promise.
