The Wicks: On fire and back home for one night at Mela

The Wicks are coming home, at least temporarily. Husband-and-wife duo Jedidiah and Pauline Wick formed The Wicks in 2009, while they were living in Cashmere. Last year, they moved to the Fort Worth area, picked up a third member in vocalist and lead guitarist John Charles Ledbetter and continued to tour and win fans with their foot-stomping soul-folk music. Now they’re back, touring Washington and playing before a hometown crowd Friday night at Caffè Mela.

Poker is in, live music is out at the new Clearwater

Dave and Neang “Touch” Dvorak, Jerry Howe and Bill Harrison took ownership of the East Wenatchee bar and restaurant on Jan. 1 from longtime owner Ken Dominguez.
