We feel blessed to have understanding customers

There's nothing like a crisis to get the blood circulation and raise the blood pressure!   When we upgraded our presses with new motors and drives over the weekend, we had all the confidence in the world that the manufacturer would figure out a way to make the darned thing work. KBA, a family-owned company in Wurzburg, Germany, has been an exemplary business partner since we installed the press in 1999.

Pay It Forward NCW inspires us to be kind and giving

Virtually every day, I come across at least one person making important contributions to make North Central Washington a better place to live. These are people who choose to put community ahead of self interest and have discovered the magic that generosity to others is the greatest gift we can give to ourselves. Nothing increases happiness and contentment as much as giving.

Dancing with the Wenatchee Stars was a huge hit

If you didn't get a ticket for Dancing with the Wenatchee Stars last Friday night, you missed a whale of a show. The place was sold out and Matt Cadman, the executive director of the Performing Arts Center of Wenatchee said the waiting list was as long as his arm. It was a real treat.

They are cross-country skiing at Tumwater Campground

By some sort of miracle, the Leavenworth Winter Sports Club has found a way to open up a nice cross-country ski venue at the Tumwater Campground off of Highway 2.  There's not enough snow in Leavenworth or even in Lake Wenatchee to strap on the skis, but the campground in between those two places had enough snow for the LWSC's grooming crew to make a 3.5-kilometer track.

Study shows strong support for conservation, public lands

Public Opinion Strategies, the polling firm that does work for Rep. Dave Reichert, conducted a couple of focus groups of conservative voters on both sides of the Cascades recently and the results were rather interesting. The focus groups were held in Kent and Wenatchee in November and those involved identify as conservative voters and participate in Republican primary elections, according to Lori Weigel of POS.

Methow Arts Alliance proves size of vision matters most

I'm impressed with the far-reaching positive impacts the Methow Arts Alliance is having throughout Okanogan County. This is an organization that sees the arts as a catalyst for economic development, improving civic life and engaging students in the discovery of learning. They're not just promoting art for art's sake.
