Jaana Hatton | Simplicity is good

As soon as I stepped onto the bright premises of the Artisan Bread Co. here in town, the busy sounds of Wenatchee Avenue faded away. While classical music gently softened my pace, the elegant metal artwork of East Wenatchee artist Tim Hautala on the wall caught my attention. I felt there was nourishment here for the whole person, body and soul.

Jaana Hatton | The magic of mariachi

Ramon Rivera’s hearty handshake and warm smile put me at ease right away. He is the director of the Wenatchee High School Mariachi Program, with contagious bubbling energy. It extends much past 3:30 p.m., when classes end. With three high school groups and one in the middle school, it is enthusiasm and dedication that keep him going.

Susan Sampson | Going gluten-free in NCW

I agree with Mary Rea’s recent column: It’s faddish to avoid eating gluten if you don’t have to, but I have celiac disease so can’t touch the stuff. I sneered at the fad until I was surprised by my diagnosis three years ago. Since, I’ve discovered that Wenatchee is as good a place as any to live with celiac, thanks to are ample resources for dealing with it.

Wells donated their beautiful three-story, five-bedroom home, surrounded by five acres of manicured lawns and orchards to the Wenatchee School District for the newly-formed Wenatchee Junior College. Students had formally been housed in the Wenatchee High School. That building was located on the corner of King and Idaho streets, which now borders the newly formed Historic District of Wenatchee.
