  1. The World is proud to partner with the Community Foundation of North Central Washington again this year for Give NCW, a unique fundraising effort that engages the community in funding projects for 25 nonprofits.
  2. We are fortunate that a group of local leaders has been working since the first of the year to discuss what might be done about the curtailment of the potlines at Alcoa's Wenatchee Works.
  3. Ron Scutt, one of the region's most innovative and creative educators, retired last month after four decades as headmaster at the tiny Stehekin School and the whole community turned out to make sure he and his wife Kim were appropriately honored for their contributions.
  4. One of the Wenatchee Valley’s truly radiant souls, Melissa Hernandez, passed away Friday after a long battle with cancer.
  5. There's a special community gathering and art event happening at the Wenatchee Community Center Sunday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. No art experience or expertise is required. It should be a heck of a lot of fun.
