Mary Rea | Swimsuit search rarely successful

I’ve never been a huge fan of swimsuit shopping. The suit I wear now was purchased on sale at Rawson’s in Omak at least 10 years ago. Every June, I promise myself I’ll buy a new one, but the purchase becomes so excruciating I can’t force myself to go through with it.

Carin Smith | FIDO wants to offer first public, no-fee dog park

I’m the chair of a local group called FIDO (Friends Improving Dog Opportunities) that is working to create a network of public, no-fee, off-leash areas in the Wenatchee Valley. In early 2014, after a process of public input, the city of Wenatchee gave approval for an off-leash area of approximately 2.5 acres at Hale Park. They asked FIDO to work with the city for planning and ongoing maintenance of the future park. The site is located at the end of the Loop Trail, south of Pybus Market and under the ...

Susan Sampson | Seeds to save the Coulee

It takes 30,000 jasmine flowers to make an ounce of “Joy” perfume. It takes 4,500 crocus flowers to make an ounce of saffron. I thought of those numbers as I stripped stalks of needle grass of their seeds, collecting them for a Nature Conservancy (TNC) project.

Linda Holmes-Cook | Growing a legacy is a labor of love

Someone once told me that nothing worth having is easy — if it is worth having, it is worth working for. In my work as a school counselor, children often told me that something they were struggling with was “hard.” I would agree, but would remind them that they CAN do hard things. This is true as well for dahlia growers, especially in North Central Washington.
