  1. The story of "big soda" is the subject of an article in The New York Review. It outlines the problem of dealing with sugar in our society, where on average we each consume 22 teaspoons of added sugar per day.
  2. When I think of a remote place in Africa, Timbuktu comes to mind, far away in the country of Mali.
  3. This week our Apple Blossom Festival goes into its busiest time, with the Memorial Park food and entertainment in full swing, with the carnival opening and with all the other events making this week special.
  4. Next Thursday, the founder of the Piatigorsky Foundation, Evan Drachman, will return to Wenatchee Valley College's Grove Recital Hall for a free concert, accompanied by Seattle's Lisa Bergman.
  5. There's a new look to Mansfield wheat fields nowadays, with "no till" wheat planting the latest change. Darold Wax took Fred Deal and me last week to see the operation, run by one of his relatives, Doug Poole.
