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.

Linda Holmes-Cook | An autumn lullaby

As I waited for the light to change on the corner of 19th and Sunset Highway, I couldn’t help but be reminded that harvest is upon us. Tractor-trailer rigs laden with square boxes filled with Honeycrisp, Gala, Grannies, Jonagold, Ambrosias, Auroras, Goldens and Reds lumber past, destined for packing sheds and ultimately, markets throughout Washington, the U.S., and other parts of the world. This is the time of year that so many of us spend the rest of the year preparing for — we are now rewarded for our careful ...
