Brenna Dimmig | New Día de los Muertos event will rise again

I met with Miseal Ferardo Perez for lunch in late October. Before the food even arrived, we were deep in conversation about Día de los Muertos. The beloved Mexican celebration was fast approaching and we were dizzy with anticipation. So dizzy — and possibly delusional — that we thought it would be a good idea to throw a Día de los Muertos fiesta on a week’s notice. The Wenatchee Community Center could host the event, Misael offered to organize food and entertainment, I’d make event fliers.

Dan Sollom | Apple Tree — take a bite

Playing golf in November can be dicey if you live in North Central Washington. Late fall brings cooler daytime highs, wind, rain and even snow and frozen turf. It’s a challenge to play daily if you’re sick and addicted like me. Luckily for us, we have golf options to the south that become more suitable for this time of year.

How two local youths inspired the Mayor's Maker Forum

A couple talented Wenatchee students played a significant role in inspiring City of Wenatchee officials to launch the Mayor's Maker Forum this Thursday at Wenatchee Valley College. Valley Academy 8th grader Sam Monson, who is passionate about tinkering with technology,  proposed that the community develop a "Maker Space,"  according to Allison Williams, the city's executive services director, Steve King, the community and economic development director and others. The idea was seized upon quickly by the city. Before that, the notion of "Maker Space" was not even on their radar, Williams ...

Hanz Scholz | Methow Valley Nordic Team to hold auction

The Methow Valley Nordic Team is an organization that “shares the love of Nordic skiing with area youth.” The team teaches cross country skiing, both classic and skate techniques, to about 110 children from the ages of 5 years old through high school. Many of the children also compete in their age group in races throughout the Northwest, going as far north as Central British Columbia and east as far as Bozeman, Mont. A fair number of the children are on a scholarship program with the team, meaning that without ...

Steve Wright | It’s time to plan projects

As we were preparing to put our Portland house up for sale earlier this year, I came to a realization. While we had been good at getting some of our critical home repair projects accomplished, there were others that I had put off. For example, our second story deck could withstand an earthquake (safety has been our priority). But while the roof did not leak, it needed to be replaced. Doing the inventory alone was disappointing and the repairs turned out to be costly. I wished I would have been ...
