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.

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.

They're not just promoting art for art's sake.
