Linda Holmes-Cook | An autumn lullaby

As I waited for the light to change on the corner of 19th and Sunset Highway, I couldn’t help but be reminded that harvest is upon us. Tractor-trailer rigs laden with square boxes filled with Honeycrisp, Gala, Grannies, Jonagold, Ambrosias, Auroras, Goldens and Reds lumber past, destined for packing sheds and ultimately, markets throughout Washington, the U.S., and other parts of the world.

After being medically discharged from treatment, I returned home to the Wenatchee area to gather my strength, and start my ...

Matt Kearny | Figure skating championships: A special treat

An estimated 268 skaters representing six western states are expected to compete in the U.S Figure Skating Northwest Pacific Regionals at the Town Toyota Center, Sunday through Tuesday. Many of those have the chance to move on to sectionals competition, with an opportunity to join the U.S. figure skating team (can you say “Olympics?”).
