  1. “Time and tide wait for no man,” wrote Geoffrey Chaucer. 
  2. The 20th annual Janice Franz Talent Show at Wenatchee High this week is going to benefit a very special person in our valley — longtime cancer volunteer and community organizer Wendy Skalisky, who is getting treatment for breast cancer.
