Wallowa chamber puts out warning
The Wallowa County Chamber of Commerce received a call Tuesday morning from someone named Chris from travelcouncil.com, said Chamber Executive Director Vicki Searles. Chris asked for information, but did not request to speak with Searles. He later contacted Sondra Lozier and discussed the making of a local DVD. He indicated that Searles was out of town and so he was not able to talk with her. Searles, however, said she was in the office and he could have made contact. The warning from the chamber, she said, is to let everyone know the chamber has not endorsed this individual. She encourages chamber members to use their wisdom when discussing any advertising.
