    Three months later Wenatchee School Board is back in person; Dr. Malcolm Butler stepping down from role at CVCH

    Today - After three months of virtual meetings due to maskless attendees and an online threat of violence against two board members, the Wenatchee School Board returned to in-person meetings this past week.

    The meeting was calmer and quicker than the board’s previous meetings, with around 50 masked people in the audience and no disruptions. Items on the meeting’s agenda included the election and appointment of several board positions and also the swearing in of two incumbents and one newly elected member. Those election results were certified Tuesday afternoon by Chelan County.

    Wenatchee Valley food banks running lower than normal on food; Small business Saturday is here!

    Wenatchee Valley food banks running lower than normal on food; Small business Saturday is here!

    Today - most Wenatchee Valley food banks have not yet felt the strain of nationwide supply chain issues, but that could change as the holidays and 2022 get closer. Food prices have risen nationwide as a result of supply chain disruptions and labor shortages, making it hard to get certain items. And for food banks, that’s become most apparent as they ramp up for holiday boxes.

    Also, on Saturday, November 27th, from 9am to 4pm, head over to the Wenatchee Convention Center to get a jump on your holiday shopping. Shop local on small business Saturday with more than 30 local vendors who will be there selling their crafts.

    Redistricting Commission misses the deadline to submit 12th District maps; Meet Wenatchee World's 30 under 35 Winner Nicole Germain!

    Today - The State Redistricting Commission’s reworked 12th Legislative District boundaries could reshape North Central Washington politics. But the Commission released Legislative and Congressional District maps late Tuesday after missing the deadline for final deliberations the previous night. Their failure punted the redistricting to the Supreme Court, which now has until April 30 to draw new district boundaries.

    Later, we'll introduce you to a Wenatchee World's 30 Under 35 winner from the 2021 awards. These were made possible by Chelan County PUD. Today we’re highlighting 31 year old Nicole Germain - the Website manager at Confluence Health.

    Wenatchee School District to begin equity audit of curriculum and policies; Businesses still struggle to find employees

    Today - The Wenatchee School District will be auditing curriculum, learning materials, instructional policies, disciplinary procedures and other materials to ensure equity for students.

    Also, Wenatchee Valley businesses are still struggling to find employees. In fact, Glaze Bakery is no longer open Mondays. They’ve cut their hours on other days and can’t always offer the full menu. Glaze co-owner Jim Eakle says they’d ideally have around 15 people. And at times, Eakle has had up to 30 employees. But right now there are just 10.

    One in six homes closed for over $700k in Wenatchee; East Wenatchee's Christmas tree breaks in half; Local pediatric vaccine clinics

    Today - Nearly one in every six of the 596 homes sold in the Wenatchee real estate market in the past six months closed for more than $701,000. So what’s in store for the future?

    Also, it’s not often — or ever, really — that East Wenatchee goes through two Christmas trees in one year. A two-tree Christmas wasn’t the original plan. But when the first tree broke in half, city employees quickly had to come up with a Plan B.

    And two pediatric COVID 19 vaccine clinics are available today in Chelan and Wenatchee.

Quality cast

As a new local resident it’s nice to have access to news in a new format. I don’t listen to radio and since the paper gets deliver in the afternoon(baffling) I rarely see that. The host is good. Great voice, clear with a nice cadence. I look forward for to more subject and hopefully longer casts in the future. Great work.
