  1. WENATCHEE — On the day we meet for coffee, Nicole Benoit’s fingernails are painted a bright, eye-catching green. She’s just wrapping up a run as Sally Bowles, the seriously self-involved nightclub dancer in a PAC production of “Cabaret,” and Sally favored green nails. But this day we’re here to discuss Benoit’s other big role this summer — organizer of the second annual LEAP event.

  3. TWISP — Friday, Aug. 1, 2014, was a hot, windy day in the Methow Valley. Two weeks after the largest wildfire in state history began, the hillsides still smoldered and smoke hung heavy in the air. In the early afternoon, a tire blew out on an old trailer being towed south on Highway 20 between Winthrop and Twisp. The tire rim dragged on the pavement for 1,000 feet, sparked and ignited dead grass on the side of the road.
  4. LEAVENWORTH — When Andre Feriante came up with the idea for a peaceful weekend of guitar workshops and concerts set out in nature, he proposed calling it the Guitar Monastery and combining music sessions with meditation.
  5. After a successful first event last summer, LEAP is back. LEAP — Local Enterprising Artists’ Project — is a performance and visual art piece, a showcase of local dancers, poets, musicians and other artists. It begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29 at the Numerica Performing Arts Center.
