Sheriff Brian Burnett reports a 77-year-old Wenatchee resident – Charles “Ivan” Bowman - was killed in a single motorcycle collision near Plain, WA Saturday afternoon.

A 911 call was received by RIVERCOM Dispatch at 2:34pm advising a motorcyclist had failed to properly negotiate a curve on the Chiwawa Loop Road just prior to the intersection with Beaver Valley Road. The motorcycle traveled off the right shoulder of the roadway colliding with trees.

Bowman was reported to be unresponsive and CPR was initiated at the scene. Chelan County Fire District #9, Cascade Medics, an Airlift Northwest medical helicopter crew and deputies responded to the scene. Medical personnel attended to Bowman for over 45 minutes prior to pronouncing him deceased.

Bowman had been riding with his son and two other relatives when the collision occurred. He was operating his motorcycle in the second position within the group of four as they entered a left-hand curve in the roadway just prior to the stop intersection with Beaver Valley Road. According to witnesses, Bowman appeared to brake prior to heading off the right shoulder of the Chiwawa Loop Road. His motorcycle traveled down a small embankment and impacted with the trees.

Bowman and the other three riders in his group were not taking part in the “Toura Tech” motorcycle event being held in Plain.

The collision is still under investigation by the Sheriff’s Office.

wsdot logoWSDOT to host meetings on DBE goal setting in Spokane, Seattle and Yakima, June 24-27

OLYMPIA – Contractors, trade and labor organizations, small and disadvantaged businesses and others who might be interested in working with the Washington State Department of Transportation are invited to comment on the agency’s proposed Disadvantaged Business Enterprise goal for contracts funded by the Federal Highway Administration.

Transportation projects that receive federal funds include a DBE goal that represents a percentage of the contract value in which minority- and women-owned businesses should participate, given their availability in the market place. WSDOT proposes continuing its current 19 percent overall DBE participation goal on Federal Highway Administration funded projects for federal fiscal years 2019 through 2021.

WSDOT will consider all written comments received and submit a final document to FHWA on Aug. 1. The goal will be effective through Sept. 30, 2021.

The purpose of the DBE program is to create a level playing field for firms owned and operated by disadvantaged individuals wanting to participate in federally assisted highway, transit and aviation programs.

options science

The Lake Chelan Multisport Foundation recently granted the Options program with a generous sum of money for a new science kit for the Options first and second graders.

The Solids and Liquids kit explores these two phases of substances, their properties and characteristics, and how to run tests to distinguish what those characteristics are.

The kids are absolutely loving it! The hands-on science hones their observations and writing skills and really makes science fun.

Over the years the Lake Chelan Multisport Foundation has been so generous in supporting Options. To date they have helped fund 4 science kits and other endeavors for our program.

The Manson School District wishes to thank them publicly for their generosity!

appleline map 800

OMAK – The Apple Line – an intercity bus line connecting Omak and Ellensburg – is having a party for its 10th anniversary, and the public is invited. The big difference between this and other anniversary parties: the Apple Line will be the one giving away the presents.

Launched just over 10 years ago as the second route of the Washington State Department of Transportation’s Travel Washington intercity bus system, the Apple Line has connected approximately 62,000 riders between Omak and Ellensburg since its first day of service. To celebrate its 10-year anniversary, WSDOT, Greyhound, Northwest Trailways and other community partners will host a reception and luncheon at 11 a.m. Wednesday, June 12, at the Civic League Park Bandshell in Omak.

The first 100 attendees will receive a coupon for a $10 one-way or round-trip fare, a savings of about $10 to $30 on a future Apple Line ride. Lunch will also be provided on a limited basis courtesy of Northwest Trailways, the transportation provider that operates the Apple Line, and other prizes and giveaways will be available to attendees.

“The Travel Washington program provides vital links between smaller, rural communities and urban parts of our state,” said WSDOT Public Transportation Division Director Brian Lagerberg. “I’m thrilled that the Apple Line helps connect people in the Omak area with the rest of our great state.”

“We’re honored to help support WSDOT’s commitment to connecting the citizens of Washington along the Apple Line over the past 10 years,” said Greyhound Regional Manager Ed van Heel. “The Apple Line is a shining example of a community investment in transportation, and we are excited to continue our support for years to come.”

Apple Line 10-year anniversary celebration

 

When:                   11 a.m. Wednesday, June 12.

Where:                 Civic League Park Bandshell, 20 S. Ash St., Omak.

Schedule:             11 – 11:45 a.m.     Presentations from local officials and agency executives.

WSDOT’s Travel Washington intercity bus system connects rural communities in Washington with regional transportation hubs and urban centers. These buses make scheduled connections with other transportation services to make traveling accessible, reliable and convenient. The program fills gaps in the statewide transit system by bringing connections to rural communities and other parts of the state.
