Okanogan Valley Gazette-Tribune


Okanogan Valley Gazette-Tribune

The Okanogan Valley Gazette-Tribune began as the Oroville Weekly Gazette in 1905, with a newsstand price of 2 cents an issue or $1 for a year’s subscription. Today, the G-T covers the Okanogan County cities of Oroville and Tonasket and the unincorporated areas that make up the North County region. Oroville, a border town, is the gateway to the U.S. from southern British Columbia and the only 24-hour Port of Entry in Eastern Washington. Oroville shares the international Lake Osoyoos with its nearest neighbor, Osoyoos, B.C., making it a tourist and shopping destination for Canadians and Americans alike. Both Oroville and Tonasket are agricultural centers surrounded by apple, pear and cherry orchards. The North County area also has many working cattle ranches, which can be seen while driving through the Okanogan Highlands surrounding the valley. The highlands are dotted with active, unincorporated little towns like Loomis, Chesaw, Molson and Wauconda.
