Carin Smith | Update on Wenatchee’s public off-leash dog park

I’m the chair of a local group called FIDO (Friends Improving Dog Opportunities) that is working to create a network of public, no-fee off-leash areas in the Wenatchee Valley. We have made great progress over the summer towards our goal of creating the first such park. It will be part of the Hale Park property, which is located south of Pybus Public Market along the Apple Capital Recreation Loop Trail. The off-leash area will be the 2.5 acres south of the Pedestrian Pipeline Bridge. If you go down there, you ...

Katie Covey | 5 Things to Love About Living in Wenatchee

My name is Katie Covey, and I am currently a senior at Washington State University. As I am starting out my senior year, the unsettling feeling of what to do after I graduate is slowly creeping up and the dreaded question of “so what’s next after college?” is becoming more common in my daily life. I will be graduating with a BA in Rhetorical and Professional writing, which clearly is no accounting major.

Dan Sollom | Dream golf: A book report

Author’s note: It’s been nearly 50 years since my last book report, back to the 10th grade, I think. I still remember struggling over writing something halfway intelligent about “Catcher In The Rye” by J.D. Salinger — Holden Caulfield coming of age and dealing with angst and alienation that many 15-year-old high school kids were expected to relate to. I think I remember getting a C on the paper, so use that letter grade as a measuring stick for what you are about to read. Thanks.)

Susan Sampson | Pybus Public Market is a weekly treat

Every Saturday morning, all summer, I treat myself to a shopping trip to the Pybus Farmers Market. My trip is cheap recreational shopping compared to shopping at the mall, and shopping at the farmers market is practical — usually. Most recently, I’ve loaded up on ripe peaches from East Wenatchee, Kalstrom’s fresh corn picked the night before and this season’s apples. I’ve baked my second pie of the season — the first was that old standby, Gravenstein. Next was Sweet Tango, the supposed competitor to Honeycrisp, but in my opinion, ...

Wendell George | Little Joe asks about the number four

For Native Americans the Four directions, Four winds, and Medicine Wheel describe what life is all about. The number Four has fascinated the world since the beginning. The Greeks with the Four basic elements, Earth, Air , Water and Fire which match the North, West, South, and East counterclockwise directions. The Bible with the Four winds to one spirit and the Four Horsemen. The first Four numbers are the scientific basis of the whole physical universe. They point to the unity of our psyche and matter.
