Vicki Olson Carr | Up from the ashes

In late August last year an attractive well-dressed woman walked into the Apple Cup Café in Chelan and sat down at a nearby table. Smoke from the devastating fires still hung in the air in the Lake Chelan Valley. Many vacationers had canceled reservations and the restaurant was unusually quiet that summer evening.

Wendell George | We shall live again

“We have waited too long for the government to fulfill their promises. They have only given us handouts. We want respect which only comes from doing things ourselves. So let’s form a group that can successfully jumpstart economic development on our reservations. It will not be easy as they’ll have to do a lot of travelling and convince government people to work with tribes the Indian Way.”

“How you gonna keep them down on the farm after they’ve seen Paree” captures the concern even if the song was not popularized by returning American doughboys until after World War I.

Chris Rader | Early settlers danced all night

Long before television and Internet, early North Central Washington settlers looked to occasional neighborhood parties for entertainment. These parties were often held in winter, when there was less to do on the farm. Families would travel in horse-drawn sleighs, wrapped in blankets and carrying food to share. After socializing for a bit, someone would bring out a fiddle or sit down at the piano and the music would start! Since sleighs had no headlights, guests stayed and danced all night long.
