Diana Haglund | Students test careers

There are many ways students can explore career paths. One of the best ways for young people to get a glimpse of what it takes to be successful in an occupation is through a job shadow. Job shadowing links schools and businesses by providing students with an opportunity to spend time in a real workplace.

Kaylin Bettinger | Why a community land trust works for Leavenworth

Like resort towns all over the country, we face a unique challenge here in Leavenworth. We want good teachers in our schools, quality health care providers in our hospital, friendly servers in our restaurants, fresh fruits and veggies at our farmers market. But if the people who provide those services, who make this town live and breathe, can’t afford to live here, what happens to this town?

Kids in the Creek 1

Zach Hinman | Program teaches Entiat ecology

For three days last week, approximately 300 high school students found themselves on the scenic grounds of the Entiat National Fish Hatchery for the annual Kids in the Creek event (KITC). KITC is a hands-on outdoor education program in which high school biology students study stream ecology on the Entiat River. Thousands of North Central Washington students have experienced this unique learning opportunity since its inception in 1992.

Norm Sturm | There's no place like NCW

A little history... I was born and raised on the “dark side,” some call them the 206’ers. On a fateful weekend after Memorial Day I said, “I just cannot take this anymore.” It was 46 degrees and raining and I had had enough. So instead of church, we packed the car and headed over the hill. Thirty years later, my heart’s desire has been realized and now three years after the move back to Washington, we have fully embraced life in our beautiful Wenatchee Valley!

Susan Sampson | Dan O'Brien and the North Cascades Highway

When John Frank Stevens planned the railroad route over his pass between Wenatchee and Everett, perhaps he would have chosen the less tortuous route over the Snoqualmie and Stampede Passes if he’d known about it. But a North Cascades route? Probably not. Too steep, too high, too ravaged by winter weather. It took Dan O’Brien of Wenatchee to meet the challenge of a North Cascades Highway, although only for automobiles, not trains.

Farrar receives Spirit of A.Z. Wells Award

WENATCHEE — Edward Farrar has a gift for overcoming obstacles. He abandoned a football scholarship at Georgia Tech after just one year, so he could study medicine.

Paula Walters | Molly Gloss to discuss new novel

What a wonderful evening April 9 was at The Numerica Performing Arts Center. Daniel James Brown was so amazing and it was evident that all present loved his book “The Boys in the Boat.” The audience had interesting questions for him. I would like to thank everyone in our community that participated in North Central Regional Library’s 2015 Columbia River Reads Program. More than 75 of our book clubs were represented that evening. A “one book” program is only a success if members of the community read the book and ...
