Jean Towers | Those smile-filled, glorious days at Wells House

We all know it as Wells House, but it should really be called Clark-Wells house after the two prominent families who originally lived there. One, the W.T. Clarks, who built it and raised a family of five children. What fun they must have had playing in all those rooms and filling the house with laughter! Two, Mr. and Mrs. A.Z Wells, whose only child died shortly after birth, which made for a more quiet, subdued lifestyle, but just as full of love for the house.

Diana Haglund | Students test careers

There are many ways students can explore career paths. One of the best ways for young people to get a glimpse of what it takes to be successful in an occupation is through a job shadow.

Kaylin Bettinger | Why a community land trust works for Leavenworth

Like resort towns all over the country, we face a unique challenge here in Leavenworth. We want good teachers in our schools, quality health care providers in our hospital, friendly servers in our restaurants, fresh fruits and veggies at our farmers market. But if the people who provide those services, who make this town live and breathe, can’t afford to live here, what happens to this town?
