  2. We live in a remarkable part of the country with unparalleled natural beauty. The access we have to the wild lands of the North Cascades is highly valued by the people who live in North Central Washington, regardless of their political persuasion.
  3. There was a wonderful send-off Monday afternoon for Brenda Abney, the executive director of the Wenatchee Valley Museum & Cultural Center.
  4. Significant momentum is building in this state to support STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education in public schools and our good friend Dr. Gene Sharratt and the Washington Student Achievement Council staff are playing key roles.
