Capitalism is being manipulated

Government regulations are not the problem. The challenge facing the capitalistic system is the manipulation of the system by the ‘few’ along with corporations spending huge sums of money influencing the decision of the many to endorse the greed of the manipulators.

AppleSox put on the miles, off to Southern Oregon

Wenatchee (4-2) at Medford (5-2) 6:35 tonight. Deep South...Deep South of the Beaver State That IsThe AppleSox are off on their longest road trip of the season mileage-wise, an adventure to the two furthest outposts in the league (for Wenatchee anyway).  The ball club will go a minimum of 1,050 miles depending on the route used.  With six “away” games in as many days it also ties for the longest trip game-wise (next month Walla Walla and Yakima Valley for six). Wenatchee vs. MedfordStarted last seasonWenatchee- is facing the hottest team in ...

Joy Jasinek | New sculpture exhibit installed

Perched on his pedestal on the corner of Palouse Street and Wenatchee Avenue, “Bowed Raven” by Georgia Gerber offers a moment of reflection as art and nature convene in this stunning sculpture. And it is just one of 10 new visiting pieces added to the Art on the Avenues exhibit.

Jenny Pratt | The YWCA is there when needed most

If I had a dollar for every time someone came to the YWCA and said “I never thought this could happen to me ...” I would not have to write to you for support today. I’ve used those words myself, and maybe so have you. The words that come next can vary from the depths of extreme abuse or homelessness and financial distress to something hopeful, like the need for free job training in order to get a job.

Jack Anderson | Charge! NCW offers plenty of places to plug in

One unanticipated pleasure of working on this column is that people around the valley have emailed me questions. Lucy Larkin recently asked; “What do you do if your trip requires more mileage than the car can go on a charge?” Her question is very often asked by those considering the purchase of an electric drive vehicle. Our region of the state has a great story to tell because there are more high amperage Level 2 chargers here than in any other region of Washington. Plug-In North Central Washington is a ...

Morning game. First time ever at home for AppleSox.

Kitsap 14, Wenatchee 4 last night Kitsap (4-0) at Wenatchee (2-2) 11:05 this morning...earliest home game in AppleSox history. Offensive Opposition Last night drubbing triggered conversation about how most runs given up and losing margins. The 14 by Kitsap is the 11th time a foe has tallied that many or more against the local nine. The record was a 19-4 loss to the Everett Merchants in 2003. The 10-run losing margin wasn’t close to the record. In 2009 the Spokane RiverHawks pounded the AppleSox by 17 here on the WVC ...

Kelli Scott | Paying it forward in NCW

Rebecca Maloney was having a tough day. We’re talking grocery-store-with-a-hungry-infant-in-tow tough. There she was in the checkout line at the Fred Meyer store in East Wenatchee, groceries half-bagged and just minutes from getting out the door, when she realized she’d left her wallet at home. As Rebecca explained her situation to the clerk, a woman standing behind her in line — a complete stranger — stepped in and picked up her tab of more than $60. The generous woman’s one request was that Rebecca do something kind for someone else ...

David Kelts | Spring — Where were our Japanese friends?

It was very strange to have Apple Blossom time without our Japanese sister city guests from Misawa, Japan. I felt like I should have been scheduling tours of the area, visiting local schools and watching Misawa students and city delegates in our parades. However, I do understand they have decided to cut back to one visit a year in order to provide more financial help for their students wishing to visit the Wenatchee Valley. We sure look forward to 10 students and eight adult delegates who plan to visit us ...
