  1. There was some interesting economic development news that came out of the latest “Port Side” meeting convened by the Chelan County Port District. The meeting was held at the Wenatchee Community Center on Wednesday.
  2. To see Dr. Ed Farrar take steps with the help of an exoskeleton device is thrilling. After spending five years in a wheelchair after an accident, Farrar first tested one of these computerized rehabilitation devices in California last year.
  3. In the short time that it has been operating, Pybus Public Market has become a shining example of a civic project that engages the community on all kinds of levels. The stunning building and the various events that take place there have created the valley’s first true tourist destination. The ‘wow’ factor is undeniable.
  4. Talking with comedian and motivational speaker Ernie G is like drinking a latte with six shots of espresso. You walk away buzzing with energy.
  5. In the past few years, I have come to appreciate the talents and the growing wisdom of Matt Ballard, a Wenatchee native who currently is a student at Loyola Marymount.
