World Editorial Board | Fires will burn

There is a fire burning today near Buck Creek, at the head of the Chiwawa River, north of Lake Wenatchee in the Glacier Peak Wilderness. Now 2,000 acres, it has been burning for a month, touched off by a bolt of July lightning.

Art of Community | Bourgeois creating community at Leavenworth Farmers Market

The Leavenworth Community Farmers Market is making some wonderful progress in helping foster a greater sense of community while building a healthier bottom line, thanks to the energy and creativity of executive director Jenny Bourgeois and the board of directors. Bourgeois is a young leader to watch in North Central Washington.

Charles Krauthammer | The price of powerlessness

This week Russian bombers flew out of Iranian air bases to attack rebel positions in Syria. The State Department pretended not to be surprised. It should be. It should be alarmed. Iran’s intensely nationalistic revolutionary regime had never permitted foreign forces to operate from its soil. Until now.

Guest Editorial | Commander in chief?

I am a retired nuclear-trained Navy captain with over two decades of sea service, so I feel confident I can speak here with some expertise. Our armed forces are without question the finest and most powerful fighting force the world has ever known. So the men and women serving today deserve from our next president an unwavering respect for their committed dedication, expertise, and sacrifice.
