I got my second COVID-19 shot two Fridays ago at the Columbia Valley Community Health office on North Wenatchee Avenue. It’s over by Ballard Ambulance and Godfather’s Pizza, so as I pulled into the parking lot I figured I’d be covered if I became suddenly ill, or seriously hungry.

The Wenatchee World recently recognized five people who are making a big difference in our community during a remarkably tough year: Dr. Mabel Bodell, Dr. Malcolm Butler, Alma Chacón, Blair McHaney and Thom Nees.

The mob that broke into the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday was threatening on so many levels. If a mob can rule at the U.S. Capitol, mobs can rule at state capitols and city halls and school boards and county commissions.
