David Kelts | Winter in Misawa

Those who visit Misawa, Japan, on our August Sister City trips can’t believe that snow often falls in winter, from November often to mid-April. Yes, it can be warm and humid in August, but average snowfall in winter is 140 inches. During the time I lived in Misawa, we even had a winter of almost 240 inches of snow. It piled up to the second floor of our Japanese home. I remember when it was the first day of spring and snow still covered our fences but Judy insisted that ...

WVC women in NWAC playoffs

WOMENS BASKETBALL (10-2, 22-5)The Knights have earned a berth in the NWAC tournament for the second season in a row.  They are tied for first with Spokane and each has two regular season games remaining.  And they both finish with the seventh and eighth squads, Big Bend (3-9) and Yakima Valley (0-12).  The only difference is Wenatchee Valley gets both games at home while Spokane has both on the road.

Parents don't lose sight of fun

As a young 20-something, I appreciate a good social life. I don’t have kids; I work a full-time job, and it’s just my fiance and me and our dog — so it’s easy to go out.

Lend a helping hand with Pets for Life

There is one over-riding truth we’ve discovered at the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society (WVHS), no matter how much money they have, people love their pets. Nothing is more heart-wrenching than to have to give up your pet due to economic circumstances — or to have to choose between feeding your pet and feeding yourself! We’ve seen it happen time and again. People will choose to take care of their pets, even at the expense of neglecting their own needs.

Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain

Hi, I'm Russ Alman, and I'm the primary social media manager for the Wenatchee World. I, along with my business partner, Dominick Bonny, curate most of what goes on in the World's social cyberspace. I thought you might be wondering who this "Russ A." guy is that responds to your comments and questions, and since it was my turn to write a column for Your Digital World this week, I decided to take advantage of the opportunity to introduce myself.

Go! Spotify Playlist: Punxsutawney Swing

“Cal” by Silver Torches: With this track this young Seattle band is reminiscent of Bruce Hornsby and The Range mixed with a little Jackson Browne, and it encapsulates all that’s right and good about modern independent music. There are so many great artists (especially from the Pacific Northwest) who are making music that reminds me of popular rock’s best years – this is one.
