Steve Wright | PUD water system delivers during an emergency

It was a harrowing 24 hours for residents of Wenatchee.  Starting the afternoon of June 28, an otherwise hot, lazy summer Sunday would soon turn into a frightening evening of survival. For Chelan PUD, it was a test of our ability to meet the needs of first responders for fighting major fires on two fronts. The question would be whether the investments made by the PUD in infrastructure  would be enough to keep a bad situation from getting worse.

Linda Holmes-Cook | In search of joy: Tips to help dahlia growth

My grandniece Kharma Jo came along with me yesterday as I headed out to weed my dahlia gardens.

I tried to explain the joy of the bloom, but with very few flowers in bloom yet, it was hard to illustrate this for her. All the same, she had a great time and wants to come back to help again.
