pudOver the next week, the PUD will prune and remove various trees at the Old Mill boat launch parking lot.

All trees being removed have been deemed unhealthy by a certified arborist; their removal will allow neighboring trees room to flourish.

A variety of new trees will be replanted to increase the health and appearance of the park.

sheriffsmOn May 22, 2017 Sheriff Brian Burnett reports on two search and rescue operations during the weekend.

The first was reported on Saturday, May 20 at 2:15pm when a caller reported they were with a group at Cantaloupe Island Crag in the Icicle Drainage and had an injured member in their party. Chelan County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue, Chelan County Volunteer Search and Rescue, Cascade Ambulance, Chelan County Mountain Rescue responded. The patient, 22 year old Lauren Adkins of Redmond had twisted her ankle approximately 1800 vertical feet above the roadway on an extremely steep trail. A ground team of Search and Rescue members and medics were deployed. Medics were able to splint her ankle and she walked out with assistance at approximately 2015 hours. Adkins refused transport to the hospital.

The second was reported on Sunday, May 21 shortly after 11:00am when a caller reported a mountain bike accident on the Xanadu Trail in the Derby Canyon area of Peshastin. 42 year old Jennifer Eichorn sustained a broken leg in the mountain bike accident. Chelan County Sheriff's Office Search and Rescue, Chelan County Volunteer Search and Rescue, Cascade Ambulance, and Chelan County Fire District 6 personnel responded to conduct the rescue. Ms. Eichorn was transported by wheeled litter to a Sheriff’s Office UTV outfitted with a carrier, which then took her to a waiting ambulance on the roadway. Eichorn was transported to Central Washington Hospital at approximately 1630 hours.

douglascountysheriff148On 05/26/17 at approximately 3:00 AM Douglas County Deputies responded to a vehicle prowl which had just occurred in the 500 Blk of 18th Street in Bridgeport, WA.  The complainant reported that at approximately 2:30 AM his wife awakened him to say she could see someone inside his pickup.  The complainant put his clothes on and went out to confront the subject.  The complainant recognized the person and tried to grab him.  The subject a male resisted and ran.  He got into a vehicle and started to drive away.  The complainant jumped in through an open window and attempted to turn off the vehicle and pull out the keys.  He lost his grip and fell out of the vehicle after a short distance.  He was not injured.  The suspect made off with a stereo subwoofer worth about $800.00.  The identified suspect is still at large and the investigation is continuing. 

While I greatly admire this man’s courage and willingness to draw a line in the sand against criminals, it would have been much safer for him to call 9-1-1 right away.  Mere things are not worth one’s life. 

This weekend we will have extra marine patrols on the river at the north and south end of Douglas County.  I encourage all boaters to make sure you have all required equipment on board and that your vessel is in good working order.  The legal standard for Boating Under the Influence is the same as that for DUI (.08% BAC).   As a matter of public safety, we don’t give warnings for BUI.  Enjoy the holiday, but don’t take chances with your safety and the safety of others.

sheriffsmUPDATE:

On May 24, 2017 autopsies were performed on both of the deceased. The autopsy results did not reveal any trauma or fatal injuries. The Chelan County Chief Deputy Coroner reported further tests and analysis would need to be completed prior to determining a cause of death. The results for that could take up to 10 weeks. The Chief Deputy Coroner and Chelan County Sheriff’s Office Detectives continue to try to identify the two deceased. Positive identification could take up to two more weeks.

######

On May 24, 2017 Sheriff Brian Burnett reports the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the deaths of two individuals found deceased inside a vehicle adjacent to a campsite near mile post 90 on Highway 2, between Leavenworth and Lake Wenatchee.

On May 23, 2017 shortly after 12:30pm a caller reported they located a full sized pickup truck in a heavily brushed area near the Chiwaukum Creek Rock Quarry. The Rock Quarry is located near mile post 90 on Highway 2, west of Leavenworth. The reporting party did not get close enough to the vehicle to determine if anyone was inside.

The first arriving Deputy located the vehicle with the assistance of the reporting party. The Deputy noticed someone had attempted to conceal the vehicle with a blanket, duct tape, and natural vegetation from the area. The Deputy approached the vehicle and located two deceased subjects sitting in the driver’s seat and front passenger seat. The Deputy requested assistance from our Detective Unit and notified the Chelan County Coroner’s Office. The Detective Unit and Chief Deputy Coroner processed the scene, secured both the deceased and the vehicle. The Coroner’s Office is performing autopsies on both the deceased and is working closely with our Detective’s Unit to determine a cause of death.

At this point in the investigation we are not actively pursuing any suspects, nor do we believe there is a risk to public safety related to this incident. Both the Sheriff’s Office and Coroner’s Office are working to identify the bodies and notify next of kin.

Once the autopsies are completed and a cause of death determined there will be more to follow.

The Lake Chelan Valley 4th of July Fireworks, which is organized completely by volunteers from the community, will return for 2017 above the Manson Bay on Lake Chelan. (Photo by GoLakeChelan.com)

The Lake Chelan community will produce one of the largest fireworks shows in Washington state on July 4, 2017. The annual event is coordinated by community members, some of whom have already begun the planning process for the show which will feature some new details for locals and visitors who flock to Lake Chelan for the show each year.

The Lake Chelan Valley 4th of July Fireworks take place in the Manson Bay in downtown Manson each year. The fireworks are staged from a barge on Lake Chelan so viewers can enjoy the views while waiting for the show at nightfall.

A GoFundMe page (https://www.gofundme.com/MansonBayFireworks) has been set up to accept ongoing donations for the show. The goal for the campaign is $2,500 which is just a portion of the funds that volunteers need to produce the show.

Overall, $30,000 is raised each year through sponsorships and donations bins which are placed throughout town. Any funds not utilized for the event are rolled over to the next year’s fireworks show so the team does not have to start from scratch financially. All funds raised from the event are designated solely to produce the annual fireworks spectacular.

Lake Chelan Winery will again host an auction to raise funds for the fireworks show. The 4th annual fundraiser will take place June 10, 2017 at 6 p.m. Tax deductible donations of items such as art, sports memorabilia, hotel stays and gift baskets can be made by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Tickets for the event will go on sale soon and usually sell out, so guests are encouraged to RSVP quickly.

The fireworks show got its start when guests at Wapato Point Resort produced their own small show. Since then, the community has taken the reigns to build the show into the crowd-pleaser that it is today.

Event sponsors such as Wapato Point Resort and Washington’s Playground have been vital in ensuring the high quality that the show has become known for. Additionally, Town Toyota Center of Wenatchee has graciously committed as the event’s Presenting Sponsor. The group would also like to recognize media partners GoLakeChelan.com and KOZI Radio for their generous support of the event.

wsdot logoDIABLO – With the rev of some engines and the swing of the gate, State Route 20/North Cascades Highway has reopened for 2017. Opening for the upcoming summer season not only provides drivers another option to cross the Cascades but reconnects US Bike Route 10 between Skagit and Okanogan counties.

Washington State Department of Transportation crews were able to speed up the projected eight week reopening with a little help from mother nature. Spring rain helped melt some areas of snow and WSDOT crews worked long days to clear more than 45 feet of snow from below Liberty Bell Mountain and more than 20 feet in many other avalanche chute areas.

Today’s 11 a.m. opening allowed crews to do a final sweep of the highway to remove remaining debris. All travelers should be aware that this route is a scenic byway that features jagged glaciated peaks, high elevations, two lanes and sharp turns. All travelers should be prepared for quickly changing conditions and limited facilities between Diablo and Mazama.

Other SR 20 construction

Travelers heading to the North Cascades Highway from Interstate 5 should be prepared for weekday daytime work between Sedro-Woolley and Concrete. Contractor crews from Granite Construction are currently working on repairing cracks, potholes and bridge decks before resurfacing this 20 mile stretch later this summer. This work is expected to last through September.

Drivers and cyclists hoping to use SR 20 between Twisp and Omak will need to add a lengthy detour to their trip via SR 153. SR 20 west of Loup Loup Summit is closed due to washouts, mudslides and road repair work. Crews are working to repair the area, but there is currently no estimate for reopening.

How long will this stretch of highway be open?

WSDOT crews will keep the North Cascades Highway open as long as it is safe to do so. The gates will close at mileposts 134 and 171 when snow starts filling up avalanche chutes, making it unsafe for travelers and crews to be on the road. That usually happens around Thanksgiving.

Mermaid

Disney’s The Little Mermaid, a stage musical adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen tale most remember from the 1987 animated film, is currently being presented by Okanogan Valley Orchestra & Chorus (OVOC) with remaining shows on May 12, 13, and 14 at the Omak Performing Arts Center.

To accommodate families with young children the show times have been set earlier than usual with curtain at 6:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and Sunday matinees at 3 p.m. Some special events have also been planned such as a costume contest.

OVOC has been producing large Broadway style musicals on the Omak stage since the Performing Arts Center was build 27 years ago. The group of dedicated artists is made up completely of community members from around the Okanogan and Chelan Valleys.

The 2017 production tells the story of Ariel, a young mermaid, who is unsatisfied with her life in the sea. Ariel longs to find adventure and love in the world above. With music by eight-time Academy Award winner Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman and Glenn Slater, and book by Doug Wright, this fishy fable will capture your heart with its irresistible songs including "Under the Sea," "Kiss the Girl," and "Part of Your World."

Emily Larsen, a senior at Pateros High School plays Ariel. Larsen is an OVOC musical veteran having participated in many productions. Ariel’s father, King Triton, is played by Zachary Van Brunt, whose first role with OVOC was in 1995 as a young revolutionary in Fiddler on the Roof. The love interest, Prince Eric, is portrayed by Derek Nansen and the evil sea witch aunt, Ursula, is performed by CaraMia Stearns Vance (Omak).

Rounding out the cast as Flounder is Hayden Swartsel (Okanogan) and Sebastian the Crab portrayed by Matthew Sonneman (Brewster).

The show is directed and designed by Judy Johnston (Brewster) and produced by James Craddock and Kim Harriman with music direction by Jonathan McBride (Chelan) and Matt Brown (Chelan).

This production takes a fresh look at the design elements of the classic tail, utilizing a steam-punk theme brought to life by costumer Susan Graves and designer Johnston. Steam punk refers to a style of design and fashion that combines historical elements with anachronistic technological features inspired by science fiction and the steam-power era.

To include the audience in the steam punk fun, there will be a costume contest during the show on May 12th with prizes.

Tickets for Disney’s The Little Mermaid are $10 for children and $20 for adults. Details about the production and events as well as special group ticket pricing can be found by visiting www.ovocmusic.org.

douglascountysheriff148On 04/30/17 at I:34 AM Douglas County Deputies responded to an assault complaint which occurred at the Douglas Creek camp area about 8 miles south of Hwy. 2.

It was reported that two individuals had been stabbed. They had transported themselves to the hospital, but the suspect was still at the scene.

The investigation revealed that there was a large party at the camp area and there was alcohol involved.  A person at the party suspected another male party goer had inappropriately touched his wife. The person, identified as 36 year old Bobby McCurdy of Soap Lake, reportedly stabbed the other male and a second male who had tried to break up the fight.

The two injured men took a private vehicle to Confluence Hospital. One subject was treated and released for a minor stab wound. The second had to have surgery because the blade had penetrated this abdominal wall.

McCurdy was booked into the Chelan County Jail for two counts of Assault 1st degree.

wsdot logoEASTON – Work to repair deteriorated sections of Interstate 90 near Easton is still scheduled to take place Saturday. Next week construction-related delays continue east of Snoqualmie Pass.  The Washington State Department of Transportation plans to remove and replace sections of deteriorating asphalt in the westbound lanes between Easton and the Cabin Creek area between mileposts 63 to 67. Drivers should plan for delays between 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Saturday, April 29. This work is weather dependent and may need to be canceled and rescheduled.

Drivers will experience delays due to daytime rolling slowdowns and nighttime lane closures east of the Snoqualmie Pass Summit to the Price Creek area between mileposts 57 to 62. The eastbound lanes near Cle Elum between mileposts 87 to 93 will be reduced to a single lane 24 hours a day Monday, May 1 through Friday, May 5.

Bridge deck repairs start in various locations on Monday, May 1 and will cause delays for drivers during the day throughout the week due to lane closures in both directions near Easton between mileposts 75 to 76 and Ellensburg between mileposts 97 to 98.

sheriffsmSheriff Brian Burnett reports a Cashmere Middle School student was arrested for pointing what appeared to be a black pistol at another student in the hallway of the Middle School.

On April 26, 2017 shortly before 3:00pm the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office School Resource Deputy responded to Cashmere Middle School for a weapons violation. The investigation determined two students were bothering each other during a class session. One student asked the other student to move to the other side of the classroom. They continued to engage in bothering and annoying each other until the end of the school day. As the two students passed each other in the hallway one “shoulder bumped” the other. The student who delivered the shoulder bump continued to walk and was approximately 10 feet away when he heard the other student call out his name. The victim student alleged when he turned around the suspect student was pointing what he believed to be a black pistol at him. The victim student said he was fearful and ran away as he yelled, “He has a gun”. The suspect student fled down the hallway, went outside, and got onto a bus.

As the incident occurred a nearby teacher heard the yelling and statement about a gun. The teacher ran to the location and was provided the name of the suspect student and that he ran outside. As the teacher pursued he learned the suspect student got onto a bus. The teacher immediately boarded the bus, located the student, and removed the student from the bus. The suspect student immediately told the teacher he did not have a real pistol, but was in possession of an airsoft gun capable of shooting plastic pellets. It was later confirmed the displayed object, which was black in color with an orange tip, was indeed an airsoft gun with plastic pellets.

The suspect student was booked into Chelan County Juvenile Detention Center for harassment – threats to kill and possessing a dangerous weapon on school facilities.

The Chelan County Sheriff’s Office is working in cooperation with the Cashmere School District to investigate this incident and we want to stress the Cashmere School District is taking this incident very seriously.

sheriffsmWHISPERING RIDGE -- The Chelan County Sheriff's Office, as a precautionary measure, has advised two property owners in the Whispering Ridge slide area to leave their homes. The recommendation is based on the most current readings from surface monitoring points at the slide area, which continue to show increasing movement in the slope.  Both homes are on Squilchuck Road southwest of Wenatchee, WA.

A geotechnical firm retained by Chelan County has been analyzing data for more than a year from 30 points of reference along the slope. The points were predetermined last year.  Late Friday afternoon the geotechnical firm advised Chelan County that the measuring point data is showing increased movement within the Whispering Ridge slide area.  This increased rate of movement could potentially cause the “toe,” or base of the slide, to inadvertently affect the flow of a tributary creek located within an adjacent canyon to the slide. That creek flows into Squilchuck Creek which is very the near the two residences contacted in the 5000 block of Squilchuck Road.

This information triggered the notification of the two property owners Friday evening.  Those residents and the three other property owners in the 4900 – 5000 blocks of Squilchuck Road had received a general notification of increased slope movement from Chelan County Emergency Management and Chelan County Public Works earlier Friday afternoon.

Surface monitoring point readings taken on March 30th (2017) show the landslide is moving again.  The Whispering Ridge slope movement was first reported in March 2016.  Initial notifications to property owners along the affected area of Whispering Ridge Drive and the five residences located below - on Squilchuck Road - occurred last spring.

The current monitoring point data indicates that movement has increased within the past couple of weeks.  The geotechnical firm has stated that future readings will determine the rate at which the landslide is moving.

Monitoring points also show the roadway at Whispering Ridge Drive is moving at a much slower rate. The roadway remains open only to local traffic and is being monitored closely by Chelan County Public Works and the geotechnical firm to determine if restrictions are needed in the future.

douglascountysheriff148On 04/14/17 Douglas County Deputies responded to two calls of gas thefts which occurred overnight. 

One theft occurred at U-Haul located at 423 Rock Island Rd.  The second occurred at the Liquor and Cannabis Control Board office located at 430 Rock Island Rd. 

It is unknown how much gas was lost, but repairs for the damaged vehicles could be over $1,000.  The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office is sharing information with the Wenatchee Police Department to determine if the thefts in the two jurisdictions might be related.

Anyone who sees suspicious activity is encouraged to call 9-1-1.  Anyone with information is asked to call RiverCom dispatch on their non-emergency line:  663-9911.

wsdot logoHYAK – Construction-related delays return to Interstate 90 east of Snoqualmie Pass starting next week. Drivers need to plan for added travel time.

On Monday, April 17 through Friday, April 20 drivers will experience delays associated with intermittent rolling slowdowns during the day just east of the Snoqualmie Pass summit along Keechelus Lake. Drivers will also see delays in both directions due to single lane closures near Cle Elum.

The RV dumpsite located at the eastbound Indian John Rest Area will be closed to traffic on Monday, April 17 until Thursday, April 20 for maintenance repairs. The rest area will remain open.

Maintenance work along the shoulders on I-90 could cause minor delays for drivers during the day on Thursday, April 20 at the westbound I-90 off ramp at Exit 110, the eastbound I-90 off ramp at Exit 106 and the westbound and eastbound I-90 off ramp at Exit 101.

Unknown suspects had entered the store and stole a cash register containing $250 in cash.  They also took a box which held $150 in nickels.  In addition, the thieves entered an outbuilding and stole another cash register. 

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office.

wsdot logoDrivers need to plan for delays, slow down and pay attention through work zones

HYAK – It’s been a very long winter on Interstate 90 over Snoqualmie Pass, but now it’s time for drivers to switch gears from driving in winter conditions, to driving through construction work zones.

A number of road-improvement projects will cause delays for drivers this spring and summer while the Washington State Department of Transportation and contractor crews add lanes, build and repair bridges and fix cracked sections of pavement between North Bend and Ellensburg.

“This year there will be multiple projects along I-90, which means drivers need to be prepared for slow downs and plan for a longer trip,” said Todd Trepanier, WSDOT regional administrator. “Please stay attentive and be patient while driving between North Bend and Ellensburg.”

Next week crews will resume work on the I-90 Snoqulamie Pass East project that builds a wider, safer and more reliable stretch of I-90 from Hyak to Keechelus Dam and from Keechelus Dam to the Stampede Pass interchange. Later this summer, crews will resume blasting along the rock slopes east of Snoqualmie Pass. Drivers need to plan for hour-long closures, during the week starting an hour before sunset.

Crews will also resume work next week to replace deteriorating sections of the westbound lanes between Cle Elum and the Elk Heights area. As part of the work, the westbound Indian John Rest Area will need to be closed periodically during the week starting in late May and continuing throughout the summer.

In May, crews will start replacing deteriorating sections of concrete pavement panels in the eastbound lanes and repairing bridge decks in the westbound lanes between North Bend and the Snoqualmie Pass summit. Drivers will experience delays as traffic is detoured around the work zone. Crews will also be making repairs to bridge decks between Easton and Ellensburg.

WSDOT has a wide variety of resources to help drivers plan their trips across I-90 this summer. Drivers can find information on multiple websites, including the What’s Happening on I-90, Snoqualmie Mountain Pass and Traffic Alerts pages. Drivers can also follow us on Twitter @snoqualmiepass and @wsdot_east or sign up for email updates or subscribe to our text message alerts by sending the phrase “WSDOT Snoqualmie” to the number 468311.

Wapato Avenue in downtown Chelan. This family fun event will run from 10 AM – 4 PM. Community members are invited to come and enjoy touring the fire station, learn ways to stay safe, enjoy a free lunch that will begin at 12-noon.

With the community celebrating Earth Day firefighters want to do their part by hosting this event that is designed to help members of the community learn more about what they can do to keep their homes and family safe. Visitors will be able to see fire engines and equipment up close and visit directly with firefighters about the important and life saving work they do.

Information on Firewise (wildfire prevention), car seats, smoke alarms and more will be available. Special guests from Chelan Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Life Flight and Rivercom 9-1-1 will also be available to provide information about the invaluable work they do and the role they play in an emergency situation. The community will also have the opportunity to learn what they can do to help in an emergency and how to quickly access these services.

Everyone is encouraged to attend and bring the entire family.

TomHow do you properly thank someone who has given their entire working life to an organization? Manson School District will be faced with answering this question in June as Mr. Tom Alexander will be retiring at the end of the school year after 38 years of teaching and coaching all with Manson School District.

Mr. “A”, as he is referred to, has taught over 50 different subjects to Manson students at almost every grade level in his years with the district including: PE, Health, Science, Social Studies, Math and Language Arts covering just about every subject that can be taught.

Not only has Tom taught these many subjects, but he has done so while serving as athletic director (20 years), coaching multiple sports such as baseball (24 years), football (18 years), girls and boys basketball (14 years) and cross county (3 years) at both the middle and high school level. Mr. A even refereed all the middle school home games for all sports for over ten years.

Tom has touched over 1,000 lives in his tenure with the Manson School District and left lasting impressions on many students and athletes. He has served as a mentor to dozens of educators and worked with countless parents and community members to provide that “extra” support a child might need. For many years Mr. A was the first to arrive at school and the last to lock up the gate after a late game or event.

Mason high school teacher Brad Soliday shared, “Tom’s loyalty and devotion to Manson’s school and community has been extraordinary. I can’t imagine that if you could add up the hours this man has spent working for students and athletes in Manson, over 38 years, anyone could rival his accumulated devotion. He has truly been a pillar of our school. I could not have asked for a better colleague or friend for the past 22 years. Thanks Tom.

As his longtime friend/co-worker and co-coach remarked… “Tom has been such a positive influence on hundreds or even thousands of students in the past 38 years. He has the ability to bring out the best in all students and athletes and the example he sets has helped shape the character of all the lives he touches.  I have been lucky enough to share Tom’s journey at Manson High School for 37 years and he has also affected my life and my family in so many positive ways.  I have been blessed to share many laughs and tears along the way.  He is a brother to me and I am so thankful to be his friend. Joe Teague (Retired Manson Counselor/Coach)

Congratulations on your retirement Tom and best of luck on your next adventure!

April 2 plane crash

OLYMPIA – Two individuals were rescued from a downed aircraft in the Olympic National Park this evening near Mt Jupiter and have been airlifted for medical treatment.

The Cirrus SR22 aircraft went down in the snow covered wilderness and search and rescue officials were alerted at 3:48 p.m. Sunday, April 2, when the plane's Emergency Locator Transmitter activated.

The signal was detected by satellites and the distress message was forwarded to the Air Force Rescue Coordination Center at Tydall Air Force Base in Florida, who alerted the Washington State Department of Transportation.  The occupants of the aircraft were also able to alert overflying commercial aircraft on the emergency frequency.

Search and Rescue personnel from Naval Air Station Whidbey Island Search and Rescue were able to locate the wreckage with the help of a search aircraft from Washington Air Search and Rescue, who tracked the distress beacon's signal. The Navy crew then lowered rescuers to the ground to locate, access and hoist the downed flyers up and onto the rescue helicopter and transport them to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Exact details about their injuries are not available at this time, but they were described as minor and not believed to be life threatening.

At this time we still do not have the names of the pilot and passenger or know what the purpose of the flight. The Federal Aviation Administration and National Transportation Safety Board are already mobilized and will begin their investigation to try and determine what caused the plane to go down.

sheriffsmOn March 30, 2017 Sheriff Brian Burnett reports two juvenile males were arrested in connection with a residential burglary and theft from an Eagle Rock residence.

On March 25, 2017 shortly after 11:00am Chelan County Deputies responded to a reported burglary in progress at a residence on Anna Lane in the Eagle Rock development. The victim homeowners returned home from a morning outing and found a vehicle parked in their driveway. They then observed two male juveniles fleeing from their residence. One of the homeowners was able to subdue one suspect and ordered him to lay on the ground until Deputies arrived. The second suspect fled the scene on foot, but returned later and turned himself over to the victim homeowners, and then Deputies when they arrived. It was later determined the suspects were brothers and an acquaintance of a male juvenile who lived at the victim residence.

Through the investigation Deputies learned the suspects entered into the residence by prying off a window screen and opening a sliding window. Once inside the residence the two juvenile suspects ransacked the residence and left it in complete disarray with clothes and other items strewn throughout the residence.

The suspect vehicle parked in the victim’s driveway was secured in preparation for a search warrant. A search warrant was authorized and stolen items located inside included electronics (Xbox game, Surface pro, Asus Laptop, and other electronics), men’s and women’s clothing, alcohol, an Amazon Echo, four bank access debit/credit cards and other items. The replacement value of the stolen items was less than $5000.

The two juveniles were booked into Chelan County Juvenile Justice Center for Residential burglary, Theft 2nd degree, possession of a legend drug without a prescription, malicious mischief 3rd degree, and minor in possession of alcohol.

chelan county logoThere have been recent reports that the Chelan County Regional Jail is refusing to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Agents (ICE).

These reports are incorrect.

Chelan County has in the past and continues to honor ICE requests to notify their office in advance of the release of individuals deemed of interest to ICE.  What Chelan County cannot and will not do is to illegally hold prisoners past their scheduled release date.  To do so has been determined by Federal Courts to be illegal.  Chelan County expects to continue this practice of cooperation with ICE in a manner that fully complies with Federal Law.  

ChelanFireRescueLogo20003/21/2017 at 0824 hours, Chelan Fire and Rescue’s (CFR) Engine 71, 79, Rescue 71, Medic 3171, Tender 71 and Chief 702  responded to a commercial fire at 60 SR150, Zippy Disposal Service, for a fire in one of their shops.  

First unit arrived within two minutes from time of dispatch to find smoke coming from the building and the remains of a fire that had been knocked down by employees using portable fire extinguishers.  CFR crews finished extinguishing the fire and checked for possible extension.  

Damage was limited to a garbage container with minor heat and smoke damage to a wall and work bench area. Cause of the fire is under investigation.

Value of the building is estimated at about $138,000.00. There was no structural damage and minimal damage to the contents.

CFR gives Zippy Disposal Service a big at-a-boy for having their extinguishers available and employees taking appropriate, safe action, to limit fire spread  by knocking the main body of the fire down.

This is a great example of why everyone should have fire extinguishers and have them serviced annually to make sure they are in good working order. Good Job to Zippy Disposal Service employees.

On Friday I had the privilege of addressing third, forth, and fifth graders at Bridgeport Elementary School. We talked about the negative consequences of bullying and how it can play into the lives of those being bullied well into adulthood. The kids were very engaged and the staff was a great help. We ended class with a fun question and answer period and I passed out junior Deputy badges to kids who could recall points from my talk.

Very Respectfully,

wash traf safePassenger ferry service, transportation planning efforts and road usage charges to be discussed

OLYMPIA – Developments in passenger ferry service and long-range transportation plan updates are among the topics before the State Transportation Commission next week in Olympia.

The meeting starts at 9 a.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, March 21 and 22, at the Transportation Building, 310 Maple Park Ave. SE, on the Capitol Campus in Olympia. This meeting is open to the public and persons wishing to speak to the commission may do so during the public comment period at 4:45 p.m. Tuesday, and at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Tuesday morning the Washington State Department of Transportation will report on progress for construction and planning to complete expansion of the State Route 520 corridor from Lake Washington to Interstate 5. The commission will then discuss recruitment and public outreach strategies to enroll 2,000 volunteers for a pilot project that begins later this year to evaluate how a road usage charge might work. In light of the growing fuel efficiency of new vehicles, the pilot project will let Washington drivers test the concept of road usage charging as a potential replacement to the gas tax and shape how it could work.

Afternoon briefings include updates on the transportation plan for the Central Puget Sound region and WSDOT’s implementation plan for WTP 2035, the state’s long-range transportation plan. The Puget Sound Regional Council’s update to its Transportation 2040 plan does not anticipate significant changes to the current plan but will address climate change, financial strategies and performance measures. A presentation on the Main Street Program will highlight how 34 cities in the state participate in a unique preservation-based economic development tool that enables communities to revitalize downtown and neighborhood business districts. Active transportation is a common element in Main Street success, helping to leveraging local historic, cultural and architectural resources for downtown economic vitality.

The meeting continues Wednesday morning with presentations on the past and future of passenger ferry service in Puget Sound, in particular Kitsap Transit’s offering of new passenger ferry service from Bremerton to Seattle, starting in July. Other topics on Wednesday address the freight-and-goods movement research underway at the University of Washington Supply Chain and Transportation Logistics Center, and a proposal under legislative consideration to study the feasibility of ultra high-speed rail transportation between Portland, Oregon, and Vancouver, B.C.

manson schoolOn Monday, February 27th, Manson’s Knowledge Bowl team battled against a very tough pool of 2B competition at the North Central Washington Regional Knowledge Bowl Tournament at Wenatchee High School.

The Manson team competed against four other 2B schools: Liberty Bell, Tonasket, Soap Lake, and Waterville. All of the schools were fighting for one of the four spots that would guarantee a berth to the 35th Annual Washington State Knowledge Bowl Tournament on Saturday, March 18th at Arlington High School.

Manson fought hard coming out on top for the first two oral rounds of their competition. By the end of the night, Manson (63 points) edged past the juggernaut Soap Lake (57 points) to take 3rd place. Liberty Bell took top honors, finishing the night with 109 points. 2nd place went to Tonasket with 93 points, Soap Lake took 4th, and Waterville finished the night with a 5th place finish and earned 28 points.
