Apps we find useful

My iPhone is not just for talking. It also helps me track my food and exercise, organizing my tasks for the work day, listening to music, pinning, reading articles from the Wenatchee World at wenatcheeworld.com, planning dinner, you name it. To stay on top of all of these things, I use a variety of apps to keep my days steady.

Linda Holmes-Cook | In search of joy: Tips to help dahlia growth

My grandniece Kharma Jo came along with me yesterday as I headed out to weed my dahlia gardens. She quickly learned to identify the spotted spurge and purslane, goathead and morning glory, and was full of questions about why I liked to grow dahlias. I tried to explain the joy of the bloom, but with very few flowers in bloom yet, it was hard to illustrate this for her. All the same, she had a great time and wants to come back to help again. My experiences with weeding this ...

Diana Haglund | Community support of schools makes a difference in numbers

I don’t believe that we can ever say thank you enough for the generosity and support that our community provides in the form of time, support, encouragement and resources.

Betsy Steele | Elegy to the park

“Okay, I’m helping folks learn about birds, to focus in on their calls, songs, fleeting glimpses. This is lovely spring that (in the words of the James Russell Lowell poem “June”) ‘comes flooding back with a ripply cheer…,’ “ I thought as we entered the park from Bird Fest Central in mid-May. Swallows flew over, song sparrows sang, and a tiny elusive yellow warbler began its territorial “sweet sweet” singing just as cordless drills rang out, to be complemented by a leaf blower and then, a radio was turned on ...
