July 1, 1976 From the Desk Behind the Editor ... by Doris Vallance Seventy-five years old - WOW! And always the next comment is"Why, you don't look it!" Quickly I reply. "Thanks, I always felt I was holding my age well, but this is the paper, not me." We, the Vallance family, have only been a wee, small pmt of this seventy-five years, like about five years come February. How did an apple orchard family become a newspapering family with no previous experience? Back in 1969 we lost 75% of our orchard and with six children, both Ike and I had to go out and find jobs. Ike found employment here at the Herald, some months later the Ed Eslers decided it was time foi" retirement and my husband decided we would buy a newspaper! The skeptics had a heyday, and we learned the why's and wherefores of newspapering in a hurry. Had we have had the time on many occasions to stop and consider just what we were doing or going to do, complete desperation would have left us fiat on our backs. We laughed a lot instead of crying, we all worked long, hard hours and here we are, celebrating seventy-five years! Our staff of employees have been wonderful, working long hours under much stress to meet deadlines. Our advertisers have been wonderful, often excusing a slip of the price or a misquoted item on sale. And you, our readers, have been wonderful, for your contributions, for your patience and for your continued support. For all of you, we are most thankful. We are mighty proud of our newspaper. We are happy to have been a wee, small part of the first seventy-five years. We look forward to many more years of publishing a bigger and better Quad City Herald!

It was at Fort Okanogan that the New Calqdonia"brigade" met or parted with|he Colville "brigade" on their annualflpilgrimages from and to the lonely trading posts of the northern country d Fort Vancouver, Wash., at the mouth of the Columbia River, during the days of the great fur business. The people of Brewster recently erected a stone monument and flag pole to mark the spot where old Fort Okanogan once stood. This historic spot is well worth a visit. Here at Brewster the Columbia sweeps in one grand curve, covering, at high water, several thousand acres and having the appearance of a great lake.
