Josh Cozart | It comes full circle

Twenty one years ago, I joined the newly-formed Icicle Creek Youth Orchestra. I expected to meet other talented young musicians, push our musical limits together, and explore both classic and new compositions. What I didn’t expect was that this decision would remain part of me for decades.

Grace Weber: 105 years of a remarkable woman

It’s not the years in a person’s life that matters, but rather the life in their years. Former Wenatchee World correspondent Grace Weber, however, will celebrate an abundance of both when she turns 105 on June 17th. That life includes horseback rider, bookkeeper, shipyard worker, farmer, wife and mother, musician, businesswoman, secretary, press photographer and journalist, delightfully portrayed in her memoir, All Those Hats published the year she turned 100.

Teri Fink | Transition House connects special education students to community, independent living

Nineteen-year-old Bayley arrives at work at Red Robin restaurant early in the morning twice a week. Her job is cleaning and replacing batteries in the Ziosks, the tabletop table systems used for ordering and paying at the restaurant. She meticulously wipes down each unit then replaces the battery, before moving onto the next table. Bayley is sight impaired, and she gets her job and training through the Transition House, a Wenatchee School District Special Education program designed to help developmentally delayed students enter the work force.

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.

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. He raised his sunken cabin cruiser in a Florida hurricane and then spent a year working construction to pay off his debt on the uninsured boat.
