New 'Local Solutions' page launches on Sunday

We are excited about a new feature we're launching in Sunday's World — our first "Local Solutions" page, which is dedicated to creatively exploring a local issue and suggest ways that individuals can pitch in and make a difference. 

From a philosophical standpoint, Local Solutions fits with our goal of being a catalyst for building stronger, more resilient communities. We think that identifying possible solutions or highlighting creative ideas to make North Central Washington better is far more effective and valuable than just pointing out problems. 

This inspiration for this effort came from community member Rebecca Maloney, who started Pay It Forward NCW.  We're open to creative ideas about how we can better serve the community and Maloney's Pay It Forward NCW, which is dedicated to promoting random acts of kindness, seemed like a perfect partner for this project.

Our maiden topic is how we can properly care for the properties in Wenatchee's foothills that were enhanced as part of the Chelan Douglas Land Trust's successful $8.6 million campaign.

These lands, if we care for them properly, will be an asset that will drive local economic success, enhance our quality of life, provide habitat for mule deer and allow us access to incredibly scenic areas for generations to come. But there are some educational challenges to keep them viable. And that's the point of the Local Solutions page. We provide readers with ways to help make a difference in  caring for these lands. 

We hope you enjoy the page and welcome suggestions for topics to address as well as any other comments.
