It looks like a backhoe is putting up a pretty solid defense on Michael Nordt's jumpshot, but the machine is actually digging footings last week for the new Wenatchee Valley College Student Recreation Center. Nordt, 16, is being defended by Hayden McKenna, 16, at the college's outdoor basketball courts next to the construction site. The $6.2 million building should be finished next summer.
Some of the 400 children from Wenatchee, Waterville and Cashmere schools listen to opera maestro Jose Iniguez as he sings at the Numerica Performing Arts Center on Friday. They were taking part in the Every Kid at the PAC program. Earlier that week, an anti-bullying program called Out of Bounds presented a production under the same program that encourages all children to enjoy local performances.
