Grace Weber: 105 years of a remarkable woman

It’s not the years in a person’s life that matters, but rather the life in their years. Former Wenatchee World correspondent Grace Weber, however, will celebrate an abundance of both when she turns 105 on June 17th. That life includes horseback rider, bookkeeper, shipyard worker, farmer, wife and mother, musician, businesswoman, secretary, press photographer and journalist, delightfully portrayed in her memoir, All Those Hats published the year she turned 100.

Kids & Nature Connections | Let it grow

Everyone who knows me well knows that I love growing food. I love talking about growing food, reading about growing food, planting and transplanting and eating the fruits of my labors. I even love — yep — weeding. Well, to an extent. As American writer Charles Dudley Warner said over 100 years ago, “Blessed be agriculture, if one does not have too much of it.”

Bill Dienst | Doctor meets refugee boat

David Eng, the Starfish Harbor Master in charge of refugee operations on Molyvos Harbor on the North coast of Lesbos, called me at 5:45 am. “There is a boat with about 100 refugees at sea being rescued by the Greek Coast guard. We need you to assemble your team and meet us in Molyvos Harbor in 20 minutes.”

Vicki Olson Carr | Shot and discus records fall in Chelan

Before Bill Veroske graduated in 1942, he set a Chelan High School record in the shot put with a heave of 50 feet, 7 inches. His strength and power were gained from stacking green lumber during summers at Harris sawmill in Ardenvoir and working in the apple orchard at the family ranch on the Entiat River.

Flying Farmers

Darold Wax | Mansfield's flying farmers paid a price

Charles Lindbergh created an immediate sensation when his 33 hour solo flight across the Atlantic ended successfully outside Paris on May 21, 1927. He became an instant hero. First Paris mobs and then the entire world — from Bombay, India to Bogota, Columbia — erupted in celebration.  Man and machine — the Spirit of St. Louis — had triumphed in a dramatic demonstration of technology in service to humanity.

Walk and Talk Series 1

Susan Ballinger | Popular walk-and-talk series underway in Wenatchee

Last Thursday evening, a group of 12 valley residents gathered at the Saddle Rock Trailhead to take a trip back into time. Chelan-Douglas Land Trust is offering a free, 10-week Thursday evening Walk-and-Talk series in the Wenatchee Foothills and Chris Rader was the third featured guest speaker on May 5. Chris is a local history researcher and writer, recently retired from the  Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center.

Dan Sollom | My new gig: there's a new golf marshal in town

Back in the 1800s when the new marshal came to town, the mayor gave him a gun and a badge and sent him out to uphold the law. Not so, it seems, when you’re the new course marshal at Desert Canyon Golf Resort. Nope. No badge and no gun. It’s probably just as well because unlike the old west, being a course marshal is much more civilized. Or so I thought.

Susan Sampson | What's that bird?

What’s that bird? The one on the feeder filled with seed is a goldfinch. That hovering predator is a kestrel, our smallest falcon. The tan bird with the black mask over its eyes is a cedar waxwing. Can you find the yellow warbler with the rippled red lines down its breast?
