For the last three years, members of Rio de Vida, Wenatchee’s Spanish Foursquare Church, has grown organic fruit and vegetables at the site, including tomatoes, chilies, peppers, tomatillos, cherries, blueberries, and corn. They sell the products at the site and also give much of the crop to the area needy. Balbina Macias washes tomatoes after they are picked at a garden at the corner of Grant Road and S. Nile Ave., in East Wenatchee.
Two letters of the Stan’s Merry Mart sign in Wenatchee flank the supermoon that lit up the Wenatchee Valley Sunday night.

Brothers Jackson and James Neumann of Wenatchee play and watch as Bart Miller operates a Chelan County PUD milfoil harvester in the Columbia River at Kirby Billingsley Hydro Park. The harvester cuts milfoil down to about 4 to 5 feet below the surface to keep open access to docks, boat launches and swim areas in PUD parks.
