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 ...

Susan Ballinger | Golden October

Low-angled, fleeting October sunshine sharpens the fall foliage display of our native deciduous shrubs and trees. My favorite tree this time of year is the larch, a species that breaks the rule that says a conifer tree must have evergreen needles. Larch needles turn golden orange in October, lighting up the mountainside with a shimmering glow. Come November, the ground below a larch is carpeted with soft brown needles and the tree’s bare branches make the tree look dead. In the Cascades and the greater Pacific Northwest, we have two ...

David Kelts | Misawa delegation cherishes visit to Wenatchee Valley

A delegation of 22 Japanese people from our sister city, Misawa, Japan, visited the valley Oct. 3-9. Their goal was to see and participate in Wings & Wheels activities and enrich Sister City friendships. The nine adults and 13 students were busy from the moment they arrived until they boarded a bus to take them to SeaTac airport. All 13 students and two of the adults had host families who shared their homes and lives with the Japanese guests. Most students stayed with the same American teens that their own ...

John Braun | Garden Terrace a well-kept secret

Some people say that Garden Terrace is one of the best-kept secrets around. What they mean is that the owner, Wenatchee Brethren Baptist Homes, is a charitable, nonprofit corporation and that the 146 apartments of Garden Terrace are managed so well that the public is seldom called on for support. Eight-six of those apartments carry HUD Section 8 subsidies to help our mission provide a home for people who have few housing options available.

Jill Fineis and Ariaha Jones | Wenatchee School District taking STEAM outdoors

The world is full of acronyms and the latest buzzword to hit the educational system is STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) and PBL (project based learning). Knowing what they stand for is one thing, but putting them into practice is precisely what the Wenatchee School District’s Science Resource Center aims to do with their outdoor science field experiences (SFE).
