Dave Bartholomew | Sustainable living tour announced

The Wenatchee Valley has much to be proud of. We are literally world famous for everything from fruit trees to beer fests. But there is another aspect of our valley, often out of view, that we should be equally proud of: people leading a healthy, sustainable life. There is even an event touting this, known as the Leavenworth Sustainable Living and Farming Tour.

August 25: Into The Fire

 “Into The Fire” by Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band: “May your strength give us strength, may your faith give us faith, may your hope give us hope, may your love give us love.” Springsteen wrote “Into The Fire”for the firefighters who lost their lives on Sept. 11, but it’s a fitting choice to honor the firefighters who were hurt and killed last week near Twisp. Songs and words fail to describe the sacrifice.

Fire season proves community correspondence

This past winter was mild, and then add in this summer’s early and dreadful heat —  the outcome created is that of a disastrous one for this year’s fire season. If you have lived in North Central Washington for long, it becomes second-hand knowledge that late summer usually entails heavy smoke and torrid days. However, it seems as though Mother Nature’s wrath hit too hard this year, leaving all of us to play catch up.

Dave Bartholomew | Stay connected with reality

In earlier columns I made the point that sustainability really is just another word for reality; that we don’t have a vote in what ultimately is sustainable. Reality will decide. Therefore, if we really want to be more sustainable, we must constantly strive to root our decisions in reality, not in our desires.
