Great anticipations: Excitement and anxiety was high when Wenatchee school bond supporters gathered at North Cascade National Bank last Tuesday to wait for the results of the bond election. Before the returns came in, John McQuaig, head of the school facilities and bond election committees, said he was pretty confident voters would pass the $66.5 million, 20-year bond to construct, remodel or improve five schools in the district.
