Pho — pronounce it “fuh,” as in “fun.” It’s Vietnamese street-vendor soup that I regard as a gourmet treat. I was worried that I’d never find it in Wenatchee when I moved here five years ago, but Van Tran solved that problem when he opened his VN Pho restaurant four-and-a-half years ago. He serves it out of the strip mall just off Miller in Wenatchee, across Springwater Avenue from Walgreens.
A group of local service clubs are collaborating on a revolutionary concept to bring a collaborative community approach to addressing the generational poverty issue that is challenging the Wenatchee Valley and our region.
I don’t usually like to play in charity golf scrambles for various reasons. One, they are typically over five-plus hours long when 18 holes should be played in about three-and-a half hours. Two, they are sometimes governed by a funky, hard-to-understand handicap system, whereby a ridiculous 20-under par is required to win or at least be in the conversation. And three, you wait at least 10 minutes on every hole waiting to tee off, and that takes you out of any rhythm you might hope to establish. One and three ...

That is the most goals they scored they’ve scored in 98 games, since they had an equal amount in 2008 against, who else - Pierce. It is also the fifth most in school history.
At 10 N. Mission St. here in Wenatchee, some local artists have created orangutan, a shared artists’ studios with storefront window display. The new space provides an incubator effort in establishing affordable workspaces here in North Central Washington and the “windowspace” is a drive-by art experience.
After a season of dahlia shows all over Washington, North Central Washington finally gets to play host. We will be welcoming some of the top dahlia growers in the Northwest, as they head east to participate in the final show of the season, right here in Wenatchee. It’s been a hard year for dahlias here in the Wenatchee valley, with record-setting dry hot temperatures during July and August. In an ironic twist, while the dahlias were experiencing a case of arrested development, the goathead, purslane, morning glory, chickweed and sperge ...
I recently made my annual trip to Northern California to visit family and friends. I was especially looking forward to seeing my niece, Kimberly, whose wedding I missed earlier this summer. It sounded like I missed the wedding of the century, at least for my family.
Wenatchee River Institute’s (WRI) fall field-science programs are all in full swing in Leavenworth and throughout the Wenatchee Valley. The Red Barn Friday lecture series, local elementary student Field Days, and the start of WRI’s 12-week Wenatchee Naturalist course offer opportunities for students of all ages to explore the natural history of our area.
Among the firefighting heroes, a broad-tailed variety deserves some credit. At least that was true last August during the Eagle Creek Fire. Compared with this summer’s onslaught, that 3,000-acre burn seems trivial, but it could have ignited much more, without the help of beavers!
