Chris Rader | The fire of '94: This summer's fires a reminder of the Tyee Fire

This summer’s devastating wildfires in North Central Washington has ignited memories of another terrible fire season 20 years ago. Four major fire complexes on what were then the Leavenworth, Lake Wenatchee and Entiat ranger districts of the Wenatchee National Forest destroyed homes, disrupted commerce, and blackened many miles of forest landscape in 1994.

Chris Rader | Wenatchee became electrified through Squilchuck

With Thomas Edison’s invention of the incandescent light bulb in 1879, and the first transmission of electricity over a 20-mile line from Niagara Falls Buffalo in 1896, the world had a bright future. Electric power became available in most cities and towns across the U.S. within the next decade (though many rural residents had to wait till the 1930s).

Chris Rader | Art exhibits highlight museum’s local flavor

Visitors to the Wenatchee Valley Museum and Cultural Center have probably admired “The Saga of Wenatchee,” a large mural on the south wall of the lobby. The mural was painted in 1939 by the young Tacoma artist Peggy Strong, who had won $2,600 in prize money from the U.S. Treasury Department in a competition for murals in public buildings.
