Early afternoon in Wenatchee June 14th I’m finishing up work and packing my things to head back to Renton. One challenge of work and travel is making time to look around. I did a little research before I drove over and found several great photos of sculptures shared on Google+. Soon I discovered Riverfront Park and Wenatchee’s Art on the Avenues. The park is only a few blocks from our office in town and I was excited to see these works in person. At the time I had no idea of the scope of this project. Later I found out there are 85 works in the park and around town. One of the first pieces I came to (and appropriately so) was “Welcome” by Jim Johnson, from Salem, Oregon. This impressive sculpture is about 10 feet tall and made of bronze, stainless steel, and copper. True to history, ind...

Wenatchee, Robe of the Rainbow Bridges have always represented a metaphor to me. Regardless if it’s figurative or physical. When we cross them life changes.

From my daily routine vantage point it’s like crossing from one world into another. The Seattle metro area is now definitely behind me and by the time I get just a couple of miles down the road through Goldbar I’m ascending into the the Cascad...

Wenatchee Home Inspector and weighing in on the Subject! Well so I was looking for what could be hiding under the sink- chemicals, abandoned body parts, old socks, scrubbing utensils or is it the Infamous SCALE! We all look at this horror of a device from time to time to see how we slipped through the ages (maybe that is droop). I guess I lost that ol' girly figure I once had (unlike Mr. Buell there, do I get bonus points for name dropping?). But have you ever wondered about these devices of mental despair?   How do you get the perfect weight? Ever really thought about it? At the end of the 18th century, a kilogram was the mass of a cubic decimeter of water. In 1889, the 1st CGPM sanctioned the international prototype of the kilogram, made of platinum-iridium, and declared: This prototy...

There is a hidden jewel in Wenatchee. Anyone interested in locating to Wenatchee or already living here should take the time to get acquainted with The Performing Arts Center of Wenatchee.Built about 5 years ago for approximately $7MMin public and private funds it is a treasure to the local community. The quality of the facility has received notice. But the quality of the productions is over the top! (Ok, Ok, I am related to the director... my daughter)It really is a valuable contributor to the community. If you haven't take a minute and check out the Performing Arts Center of Wenatchee. You will see acts from Carol Channing to a local dance studio. Contemporary and Classical. It is all there.
