Baseball Blurbs by Bruce Victoria (19-23) at Wenatchee (22-20) 7:05 tonight. Run on RunsWhat happened to pitching and defense? The WCL record book is getting blasted offensively.

This season that has shot up to 11.08, a 22.3 percent increase. Check out these from the league record book and how many entries occurred so far in 2014. - Most runs in ...
I first came to Wenatchee when I was 11 years old. Two years ago, I graduated high school and almost immediately moved away. I came back home this summer to work as an intern at The Wenatchee World in the digital department and, upon returning to this valley, I realized how much I missed the community I left behind.

I wrote last week about the vital role local newspapers play during fire season. Since then, as you may have heard, a few more fires broke out. Also since then, I have realized a few things about this place and the people who live here.
It has been heartening to see readers responding so favorably to the outstanding fire coverage that the World staff has delivered throughout the tragic wildfires that have ripped through North Central Washington.

He felt so valued for the work that he was doing that he didn’t understand why he was being paid to do a job he loved so he threw away his first check in the trash. If this isn’t the essence ...
Roughly one month into the first field season, work proceeds on such an intense schedule that I haven’t had time to update the blog.

Suffice to say, it adds up to a large sample.
