Jaana Hatton | Simplicity is good

As soon as I stepped onto the bright premises of the Artisan Bread Co. here in town, the busy sounds of Wenatchee Avenue faded away. While classical music gently softened my pace, the elegant metal artwork of East Wenatchee artist Tim Hautala on the wall caught my attention. I felt there was nourishment here for the whole person, body and soul.

Jaana Hatton | The magic of mariachi

Ramon Rivera’s hearty handshake and warm smile put me at ease right away. He is the director of the Wenatchee High School Mariachi Program, with contagious bubbling energy. It extends much past 3:30 p.m., when classes end. With three high school groups and one in the middle school, it is enthusiasm and dedication that keep him going.

Susan Sampson | Going gluten-free in NCW

I agree with Mary Rea’s recent column: It’s faddish to avoid eating gluten if you don’t have to, but I have celiac disease so can’t touch the stuff. I sneered at the fad until I was surprised by my diagnosis three years ago. Since, I’ve discovered that Wenatchee is as good a place as any to live with celiac, thanks to are ample resources for dealing with it.

Teri St. Jean | Wells House: A gift of college memories

In 1949, Mr. and Mrs. A.Z. Wells donated their beautiful three-story, five-bedroom home, surrounded by five acres of manicured lawns and orchards to the Wenatchee School District for the newly-formed Wenatchee Junior College. Students had formally been housed in the Wenatchee High School. That building was located on the corner of King and Idaho streets, which now borders the newly formed Historic District of Wenatchee.

Chris Rader | Eagle Transfer has mobilized Wenatchee for 112 years

Founded in 1903 by Albert N. “Bert” Courtway, the Eagle Livery and Transfer Company was Wenatchee’s first horse-based transportation business. It offered many services: stabling and feeding horses, selling feed and firewood, taxiing, and renting out horses and wagons. Two-horse “buses” from Eagle Transfer would meet all incoming steamboats and trains to deliver passengers to their hotels or residences. Families hired the company to move furniture and household goods, including pianos. Young men rented Eagle carriages to take their sweethearts on Sunday drives.

Wendell George | Little Joe learns about the symbolism of the eagle

When Neil Armstrong guided the Apollo 11 lunar module to the moon on July 20, 1969, he said “The Eagle has landed.” As he moved to the surface, he said, “One step for man and one giant leap for mankind.” But did mankind’s giant leap open the door for solving world problems? Astronaut Edgar Mitchell believed so during his 1971 Apollo 14 flight but progress has been slow since.

Community input sought to enhance Pybus Public Market

In the short time that it has been operating, Pybus Public Market has become a shining example of a civic project that engages the community on all kinds of levels. The stunning building and the various  events that take place there have created the valley’s first true tourist destination.  The ‘wow’ factor is undeniable.
