I was very impressed with Echo Ridge after my most recent phonecall to them. Our cat who is getting older was feeling sick, so I called to ask them what they thought we should do. After asking me some questions, they actually advised me that taking my cat in the car to an unfamiliar place would probably be too stressful to be worth it and that I should wait until she developed other symptoms before I did that.
The people we have talked to at this law firm have been so helpful to us! We found their services to be very professional, and beyond what we have hired them for, the other day they gave us about an hour of advice - so many tips on filling out legal forms and other things related to real estate that we didn't know before. They really went above and beyond.
Some of the staff at this nursing home have been so nice and caring that I was really impressed. I did notice that it always seemed to take a long time before anyone came to help when something minor needed to be done (while I was visiting people here), but overall they did a good job, and I was thanful for that.
We've stayed here more than once when we came to The Dalles which is on the Oregon side of the Columbia River. It's a pretty good motel - clean rooms, an outside swimming pool (I think the pool is only available for use during the summer months) - and there is a restaurant that is sort of attached, or at least next door to it.
There used to be more video rental choices in town, but right now Star Video is basically the main one. It's not bad - actually better than some of the places we used to have as they do at least have a small foreign section and are pretty good about getting new releases in. I have actually found a couple unexpected videos I wanted in the section of used videos for sale too.
This is the best supermarket grocery store in the Colville area for most things. A while back their bread (that they bake themselves) didn't seem to be as good as at Safeway, but lately it has seemed to taste better - they must have changed their recipe. They have a good produce section, a good selection of cheeses, and a pretty good selection of microbrew beers.
