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 ...

Susan Sampson | Meet 'Perri the Poetry Fairy'

Meet “Perri the Poetry Fairy.” Most people wouldn’t recognize Perri, but the first, second and third grade students at Mission View Elementary School do! Perri is the woman dressed, from the toes up, in bright tights, shorts, a tutu, a bright top, gauze wings, a tiara, bright makeup and gobs of jewelry. She breezes into their classrooms to read poetry to the children for five to 10 minutes once per week. She squeezes her performances into lesson plans evidently required by “No Child Left Behind” laws and “Common Core” concerns ...

Mary Rea | Keeping an eye on deer

A lot of deer roam through our yard, which is just fine. It’s a chance to get up close and personal with nature. We watch bucks browse on the bushes out back, count points on their antlers and wonder which of the local females they’ve romanced.

Linda Holmes-Cook | Wood hath hope: The cycle of plant life

A couple weeks ago I was checking my Facebook notifications to find a post from my daughter Abby. “Did you know that Father Lovett died?” she asked. I said “No … Where did you hear that?” She told me that a friend from St. Jude’s Parish in Redmond had told her. Father was the founder of our former parish, St. Jude’s, and I immediately Googled his name. My heart broke when I found out that it was indeed true. Father Gerald Francis Xavier Lovett passed away at the age of ...

Kris Bassett | Clark's pebble mansion

One of Wenatchee’s most historic and early grand mansions is what is known today as “Wells House.” But before A. Z. and Imogene Wells owned the house, which later became the first home to the Wenatchee Junior College, it was home to a man who is regarded as the “father of the Wenatchee Valley.” It was William Timothy Clark, who brought water to the valley through the Highline Irrigation Canal, which in turn resulted in Wenatchee becoming the “Apple Capital of the World.”

Dawn Kranz | By From Sweet Getaway Cottage to Home Sweet Cottage

There is just something about these sweet little havens that seems to answer to our deepest longings for shelter and comfort.
