Chris Rader | Wenatchee became electrified through Squilchuck

With Thomas Edison’s invention of the incandescent light bulb in 1879, and the first transmission of electricity over a 20-mile line from Niagara Falls Buffalo in 1896, the world had a bright future. Electric power became available in most cities and towns across the U.S. within the next decade (though many rural residents had to wait till the 1930s).

Watch out for those health insurance subsidies

Many people are going to be shocked to learn they owe penalties or additional payments when they send in their taxes. People being people, some are probably underestimating their income in order to get subsidies when they signed up for insurance through the Affordable Care Act.

Susan Ballinger | New guide points out our native shrubs, trees

June in the Wenatchee Valley is peak bloom time for many native shrubs that form dense thickets in foothill ravines and alongside streams. Have you caught a whiff of sweet citrus perfume wafting from Lewis’s mock-orange? Or, been reminded of crashing ocean waves by the frothy sea-foam flower head of oceanspray? Have you cracked a smile at the over-sized flat-topped white mass of flowers on the gangly blue elderberry?
