Chelan Athletes pull down CTL League honors

By Richard Uhlhorn
It has been quite a Fall sports season for the Chelan Goats in all of the Fall sports programs. A number of Chelan athletes were honored with First and Second Team-All League honors.

Soccer:
The girls soccer team had a rough year as Coach Jamie Richards and Assistant Coach Gilberto Romero used the season to train the very young team in the fundamentals of the game. However, there were some excellent soccer players on the team who were recognized by the league despite not winning one league game this year.

Senior defender Mary Fitzpatrick and Junior midfielder Daisy Franco were both named First Team-All League. Junior defender Shandiah Medonza was named to the 2nd Team-All League along with Junior midfielder Casey Jackson. The Soccer team also received the Team Sportsmanship Award for the season.

Volleyball:
This year’s volleyball team was exceptional and ended the season with a 4-2 league record and a 10-6 overall record. Their only nemesis was Cascade and the downsized league, or they would have been battling it out for a trophy in Yakima. Unfortunately, only one team out of the Caribou Trail League was able to qualify for State, and that was Cascade who managed, after years of trying, to beat Chelan twice.

Chelan had only two seniors on the team this year; Mackenzie Harris and Johanna Fuller. The rest of the varsity team was made up of juniors and one sophomore.

Senior Mackenzie Harris and junior Haley Holliday, both outside hitters were honored with 1st Team-All League status. Senior setter Johanna Fuller and junior middle blockers, Emma Stockholm and Carolyn Martin were honored as 2nd Team-All League players.

Football:
The Chelan Goats has an exceptional year under Coach Travis Domser, losing only one league game to Cascade, but the highlight of the season was defeating Cashmere and bringing the Bronze Shoe back home on Homecoming night. The team ended up with a 2-1 league record and a 6-4 overall record.

The only game keeping the Goat out of post season this year was a 35-33 loss to Cascade, a game that could very easily have gone to Chelan.

Garnering 1st Team-All League honors were senior quarterback Eli Jenkins, senior running back Mason McClellan, sophomore wide receiver Donny Watson, junior offensive lineman Jose Padilla and senior offensive lineman Francisco Arteaga, junior linebacker Julian Buyas. Padilla and Arteaga were also named 1st Team-All League as defensive linemen.

Garnering 2nd Team-All League status was junior tight end and linebacker Ty Schwartz, sophomore wide receiver Bryce Robison, seniors Hayden Habich and Willy Isenhart on the offensive line, and Habich on the defensive line, senior Mason McClellan as a linebacker and both Donny Watson and Bryce Robison as defensive backs.

Cross-Country:
Mereck Palazzo, Dillon Dawson and Henry Elsner all garnered 1st Team-All League status for their work on the cross-country team. 2nd Team honors went to Ivan Reyes on the boys side.

Allie Barnes, Addison Ivory, Jessica Oules and Daisy Campos were named 1st Team-All League and Drew Morris, Olivia Nygreen and Kali Van Rusen were named 2nd Team-All League runners.

Coach Mark Anderson was named Coach of the Year and the boys Player of the Year was Mereck Palazzo.

All in all a great fall sports season for the Chelan Goats who shined on all fronts.

Overdue Climbers Set SAR into Action
Chelan County Sheriff Rich Magnussen, CCSO - November 22, 2014
Overdue Climbers Set SAR into Action
Sheriff Brian Burnett reports that two overdue climbers were located after failing to return home Thursday from a climbing trip. The climbers, Stefan Swoboda (53yoa) of Leavenworth and his wife Heidi Swoboda (45yoa), had advised family members that they planned on ice climbing in the Tumwater Canyon area and would return home Thursday evening.

On Friday morning a family member called RIVERCOM Dispatch center and reported that the climbers had failed to return home Thursday night as planned. Search and Rescue coordinators with the Chelan County Sheriff’s Office were advised of the overdue climbers and responded to the area. A Sheriff’s Office helicopter also responded to the area but after about thirty minutes of searching it was forced to abort and return to Wenatchee because of poor visibility.

Due to the very steep terrain and inclement weather, Search and Rescue coordinators requested assistance from Chelan County Mountain Rescue (CCMR). At approximately 1200hrs six members of (CCMR) began climbing up towards Icicle Ridge from the Tumwater Canyon side to attempt and locate the missing climbers.

At approximately 1310hrs, Search and Rescue coordinators received a text from three friends of the missing climbers who had hiked into the area from the Icicle Ridge Trailhead. They advised that they had located the two climbers on the Icicle Ridge Trail.

Four members of (CCMR) including a Doctor from Confluence Health, hiked up the Icicle Ridge Trail and met up with the climbers as they were starting down the trail. After evaluating the climbers and determining that they did not need medical treatment, they followed them down the trail. At approximately 1540 hrs the rescuers and the overdue climbers arrived back at the trailhead.

The climbers stated that they were overdue because the route they had chosen took a lot longer than they had initially planned. They had lost their cell phone during the climb and were unable to call and notify family members that they would be late.

Hospital retreat found no solutions to facility issues
News With Richard Uhlhorn Richard Uhlhorn - November 22, 2014
Hospital Commissioner Phyllis Gleasman concurred with the rest of the commissioners at the Hospital Retreat on Tuesday, November 18, that they needed to find a solution to upgrading the current facility.
Hospital Bond opponents Larry Hibbard and Bob Thompson were on hand at the Hospital Retreat to listen to the what was offered up in the way of solutions to the hospital’s dilemma of remaining in the current facility.
Hospital CEO Kevin Abel fielded questions from the Hospital commissioner regarding the current facility and other potential alternatives to building a new facility.
Commissioner Tom Warren suggested a number of potential alternatives that will be explored.
Commissioner Mary Signorelli asked what other financial options were available to the hospital.
Hospital retreat found no solutions to facility issues

By Richard Uhlhorn
What to do? That was the question raised at the Lake Chelan Community Hospital’s Strategic Planning Retreat at Lakeside Lodge and Suites on Tuesday, November 18.

The Board of Commissioners and administrative staff were on hand to discuss the failure of the $19 million dollar bond issue and what the potential alternatives to that failure were.

Kevin Abel, CEO of the hospital said, “When the day is done, I appreciated the dialogue.” He suggested that some thought on the future of the current facility was needed. “We need to look at what we can do with the debt capacity.” The bond issue failed for the third time just below the 60 percent super majority needed to pass.

The hospital is in sound financial shape, but Abel remarked that it couldn’t support a new facility on its own dime. Currently the debt service is $9 to $10 million dollars excluding grants.

“My thought is to not come up with a plan at this meeting,” said Able.

Commissioner Tom Warren started the dialogue and asked if the hospital should consider building a new clinic on the recently purchased land out by Walmart. “What are the odds of that happening?” he asked. Abel said it wouldn’t happen. Warren also asked how the purchase of the Clinic affected Medicare and Medicaid payments to the hospital. Abel replied that nothing would affect those payments and the hospital is allowed to own an off-site clinic.

Commissioner Mary Signorelli asked what the financial options were in-house. Warren added that the Port of Chelan County had shown an interest in the past with helping the Hospital District. “The Chamber is also interested because of the economic benefit of the hospital.”

Mike Mackey, Port Commissioner, told the board that the Port would have to look at the Return-on-Investment Analysis. “We would have to do our due diligence,” said Mackey. He did say that the Port is having a conversation, but that nothing has been decided.

Warren then asked about building a joint clinic with Columbia Health and Abel replied that they can talk about that.

Signorelli said they (the board) needed to look at other options and to not remove the fact that the hospital is housed in an aging building. “We still have to address that.” Warren agreed with that assessment and stated that the main issue is the current facility. “Confluence Health is everywhere except for us,” he said. Commissioner Phyllis Gleasman agreed that the current facility was the number one issue facing the hospital and asked how they would upgrade the building now?

Warren also asked how Grand Coulee was able to afford a new hospital facility. Abel replied that they got lucky. “They did it right when the recession was as its height and construction costs were down and interest rates were at their lowest levels.”

Warren summarized the ideas that included:
  • Replacement of the old facility;
  • Construction of a new clinic building freeing up space at the hospital;
  • Merging with larger partners like Confluence Health;
  • Find other funding through agencies like HUD; and
  • Spending more money into the existing building.
Les Cooper, Chamber President and chairman of the hospital election committee, said, “The community was clearly interested in good health care. The first thing people look at when relocating are the schools and health care facilities.” Cooper also said that the community needed good paying jobs outside of the tourism and agriculture areas. “Our young people generally come back to family owned businesses. We need well paying jobs.”

Cooper added that there are other health care issues in the valley. “Regency Manor is leaving in two years…that’s a skilled nursing facility that won’t be here. Would it be possible to consider how to retain some of that (function) here,” he asked. Abel replied that it was going to have an impact when they left, but that hospitals have struggled with maintaining that type of facility.

Signorelli stated that Regency Manor’s decision to leave the valley was regulatory and financial decision. “They are moving closer to Confluence,” she said. “That’s not good for us,” Cooper said.

Cooper went on to say that the dilemma in the community is that the majority of the voting public requested a new facility. “It has failed to reach the 60 percent super majority three times in a row. There is nothing we can do about that, but one way or the other it is our responsibility to provide a new facility.” He thinks there is money for construction of a new facility out there, but doesn’t know where.

Signorelli said, “There are more options out there. We need to come up with some good possible solutions. I think we have great momentum in this community right now.” She suggested going back to the community to keep the momentum going.

Emmit Aston, a retired pharmacist and resident, said, “I want to find out why people voted No?” He suggested asking the question via GoLakeChelan and KOZI. “We need to find out why.”

Troy Hawkins, a private resident in attendance, asked why the hospital wasn’t saving money. “My question is based on private business. If you want to expand, you go to a bank or save it or do a combination of it.” He asked if there had been any discussion about that since the first bond had failed.

“It could be an option and should be an option,” said Warren.

In other business at the retreat:

Katherine Jerald, executive director of the Hospital Foundation, reported on Community relations and how the foundation is doing financially. She said the Foundation has around $2.8 million and $1.9 million in scholarship fund. The endowment fund has approximately $900,000. “It is a value added component of the community.”

Les Cooper, chairman of the foundation board, added that they are in good financial shape. “Despite the bond failure, we plan on remaining aggressive.

Agustin Benegas talked about the Wellness programs and the need for volunteers. They have held over 50 events and the Club Max Program has been active at both Manson and Chelan Schools.

Vickie Bodie, Chief Financial Officer, went over the Finance and Regulatory issues at the hospital.

Dee Cook shared the results of the Physician Survey and Employee Satisfaction Survey, both of which were good.

Carol Velasquez talked about quality and safety issues at the hospital.

Ross Hurd, IT manager was asked if it was possible for a patient to access his/her own medical records. Hurd replied that it was possible by logging in to the system and requesting them.

In summary, the Board and staff will begin the process f up-dating the hospital’s long range plan in hopes of finding a solution to the facility issues.

PTA Parent/Visitor Lunch at MOE

Click Here for a bunch of photos from the luncheon
PTA Parent/Visitor Lunch at MOE
Every month MOE PTA puts on a parent / visitor lunch. The purpose of the parent/visitor lunch is to build our MOE family and school partnership. It's a great way for parents to spend time with their kids and talk with them about the importance of healthy eating habits. Learning about the school lunch program and having the opportunity to talk with the people who care for our children while they are at school is also a great part of this program.

This month with the suggestion from Holly Mogan, Lake Chelan School Districts Food Service Director, we decided to have a Thanksgiving Themed Lunch. The lunch was held November 20th and we had 165+ visitors! And with the help of the kitchen staff, Mr. Peck, Mrs. Bryant and our parent volunteers (Sarah Peebles, Krystina Nelson, Laura Clinton, Karla Domser, Mary Green, Brianna Foyle, Katherine D’Orazi, Camisha Hughbanks, and Toni Gasper), today’s lunch was a huge success!

Remembering Vietnam and a Fallen Soldier
News with Greg Kennedy Greg Kennedy - November 22, 2014
Click ABOVE for the video
Remembering Vietnam and a Fallen Soldier
Vern Zornes was killed in combat on November 23, 1970 in Vietnam in the arms of John Wolf. John Wolf is assembling a video in honor of Vern Zornes. That video has not been completed but Wolf has assembled a video from 8mm movies he shot in Vietnam. Read John's story below and watch the historical footage you will see nowhere else.

I was on your site and found references to Vernon Zornes, a Vietnam vet who was killed in combat. I am working on a tribute video for Vern Zornes who I served with in Vietnam.

He died in my arms on November 23, 1970. The guy in front of Vern, Robert Runge tripped a booby trap and it killed he and Vern. We were under attack and I had to decide whether to defend myself or try and help Vern? I decided to help Vern and save him if I could. Fortunately, Ron Griffin and a couple of other guys defended our position. It took about 20 minutes for the dust-off birds to arrive and by that time I think Vern had expired. I gave him CPR the best I knew how.

Vern was a real character, the kind of guy that everyone loved. Everyone hated C Ration Fruitcake, it was like eating a brick with horrible taste. When we got them most guys threw them away immediately. For some reason Vern loved fruitcake so we always gave him ours. Because of this he was nicknamed “Zombie.” I assure you it was a complementary nickname that good friends give someone they like a lot.

I blocked out Vietnam for years and then in 2007 got reconnected. One of the first things I did was find some movies I took in Vietnam with an 8mm movie camera I bought in the PX and was able to convert the film to my computer and then do some editing. One of my first videos posted on YouTube was a tribute to Vern. I never imagined that my videos mostly from Nam would be seen over 2.5 million times.

Over the years I have got to know via email and Facebook Vern’s brother and sisters, especially Jeanie Zornes. Thankfully they have adopted me to the family.

I hope this Sunday, November 23, 2014, forty-four years after he was killed, you would mention his name and honor his service. My life has been blessed because I think I have Vern on my shoulder helping me through life. I will never forget my friend, Vernon “Zombie” Zornes.

John Wolf

Chelan Fire and Rescue Report of Pat & Mike's Car vs Building
Chelan Fire and Rescue Greg Kennedy - November 21, 2014
Chelan Fire and Rescue Report of Pat & Mike's Car vs Building
This report from Chelan Fire and Rescue contains some more information concerning the Car vs Building that took place at Pat & Mike's on November 19th.

Chelan Fire and Rescue’s Engine 71, Chief 701, LCCH EMS Medic 3171 and Chelan County Deputies responded to a report of a vehicle vs. building on 11/19/2014 around 2247 hours at Pat and Mikes Texaco.

Initial reports indicated one vehicle was in the building with an occupant calling for help. CFR arrived and confirmed one vehicle was in the building about 20 feet. The structural integrity had been compromised, leaving a main beam unsupported due to the post being knocked out of position.

CFR and EMS personnel quickly extricated the sole occupant out of the vehicle that was inside the building. The driver of the vehicle was treated and transported to LCCH.

A Chelan County Deputy had turned off the power at the breaker boxes. Upon arrival of the business representative, the fuel tanks were turned off at the underground valves at the base of the tanks. The unsafe area of the building was cordoned off with Fire line. The building/business representative was directed to contact the owner, their insurance company and a general contractor to shore up the building before making entry. The vehicle was left in the building until it was safely be removed.

Popular Sage Hills Trails to close for the winter on Dec. 1

Popular Sage Hills Trails to close for the winter on Dec. 1
Annual closure to protect habitat for mule deer and other wildlife

The much-loved and used Sage Hills Trails, which traverse the hills west of Wenatchee, will close to all recreational use on Monday, Dec. 1, 2014, to protect habitat for wintering wildlife.

Chelan County PUD, the Chelan-Douglas Land Trust (CDLT) and the state Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) coordinate the winter area closure to protect wintering mule deer and other wildlife. The seasonal closure, which includes the habitat stretching across the Sage Hills, is monitored and enforced.

The annual area closure protects habitat for wintering mule deer and other wildlife and affects all lands owned by Chelan PUD and CDLT that are located between Number 1 Canyon and Horse Lake Road, including the Horse Lake Reserve.

The PUD owns about 960 acres in the heart of the Sage Hills and manages the area as a wildlife preserve as required by its federal license to operate Rock Island Dam. The CDLT supports the area closure by closing public access to the Sage Hills Trail system at area trailheads.

Plans are to reopen the Sage Hills Trails to hikers and bicyclists on April 1, 2015, if habitat conditions allow.

Until the Sage Hills Trails reopen, hikers and mountain bikers are encouraged to use the Apple Capital Loop Trail, Saddle Rock, Dry Gulch (hikers only), Lower Castle Rock and the Jacobson Preserve trails. A trail map showing alternative routes is posted on the CDLT website.

Chelan Schools Make Beautiful Music
Lake Chelan School District Greg Kennedy - November 21, 2014
Chelan Schools Make Beautiful Music
Music is a part of all of our lives - a universal form of communication that can express feelings and emotion beyond words.

Music education is known to increase comprehension in mathematics and gives students more pathways of self-expression. Enjoy these five short pieces from the Lake Chelan School District highlighting the music programs.

Eva Aneshansley
Audition Earns Aneshansley Acceptance to Western International Band Clinic
Eva Aneshansley is a junior at Chelan High School. Recently, Eva prepared an audition using Smart Music computer software and submitted it to the Western International Band Clinic (WIBC) along with over 1000 other students from across the country. The audition was assessed by a panel of music judges and Eva won a seat in the Thunderbird Band at WIBC!

Eva will be traveling to Seattle with Mr. Burdick, her concert band teacher, later this month. Eva is in the process of preparing an extensive list of concert music composed by the clinic’s guest conductors.

Guest artists at the clinic include two of the most renown flute players in the world including Jim Walker (famous for his parts in countless movie soundtracks including Star Wars and Schindler’s List to mention a few). The clinic will involve students from all over the United States.

Eva will have the privilege of listening to several high quality college and professional concerts each evening. Eva is not only an impressive musician, she also plays varsity volleyball, is a member of the ASB, leader and co-founder of the Kind Club, and she is an outstanding student. Eva began playing trumpet at MOE in the 5th grade. Congratulations Eva!

Morgen Owings Elementary School
MOE 5th Grade Band – FIRST NOTES OF A NEW SEASON – Concert on December 11, 2015 – Community Gym
As we all know, learning to play an instrument and learning to read music has some very important correlations to helping kids with symbolic representation among other things. After talking with our math teachers here in Chelan, I have heard this is one of the hardest transitions for math students. The shift to symbolic representation in our Algebra classes is a hurdle for many of our students. What better way to get a jump start, than by learning an instrument in 5th grade and continuing into our upper level music classes!

Our students are provided an opportunity to select and receive group lessons from our music staff on flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, trombone, or percussion. Through the ongoing support of the M&O Levy and the Lake Chelan Rotary, we have been able to provide an instrumental experience for anyone interested regardless of financial status. This truly gives our students an edge in academics and in representing our community on the regional, state, and national stage.

This year we re-organized the program a bit to better meet the needs of our students and get them off to a great start. Beginning Band is meeting Tuesday thru Thursday in small like-instrument groups and on Fridays all 5th grade band students are bused to the Middle/High School to rehearse together in the Middle/High School Music Room. We worked closely with Mr. Peck and the 5th grade team to shift minutes to decrease the minutes weekly of band, and still accommodate the small group lesson model that is so vital to this process.

A big advantage to the design this year is that 15 minutes weekly have been retained in 5th grade classrooms while allowing students to receive small group instruction 3 days a week and a full team rehearsal on Fridays. This new schedule will prove beneficial in years to come! Thanks for everyone’s support of the arts and a comprehensive education!

7th Annual Chinook Beginning Band Festival on May 12, 2015
We are excited to announce that we will once again be organizing and hosting the 2015 Chinook Beginning Band Festival. 7 years ago, Bob Soost and Stephen Burdick decided that our youngest musicians need a stage to perform on that would allow them the opportunity to see that students all over the country have the very same opportunities to learn wind and percussion instruments in their elementary schools. We also value the chance to invite other communities into our school and share an afternoon of music making culminating with a concert for our family and friends sponsored by Chinook Music of East Wenatchee.

For the 7th year in a row, we will be inviting the beginning bands of Entiat, Manson, Pateros, Waterville, Bridgeport, and Brewster to join us for the afternoon of rehearsals and concert. This year’s festival will be guest conducted by Kent Chalmers of Cashmere, WA (Pictured Left). Kent earned an undergrad degree in trumpet performance and education, most recently earning a Master’s Degree in Instrumental Conducting from Southern Oregon University. He will be rehearsing this mass band of over 200 beginning band students. We are also fortunate to have a local music teacher, Jonathan McBride from Pateros, WA who is a published composer with C.L. Barnhouse Publishing. This year we will be performing one of his recent published works entitled “Nature’s Fury.”

NAfME Northwest Division Conference
Outstanding music students from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming have received top honors by being selected to participate in one of our 2015 NAfME All-Northwest performing groups. Eva Aneshansley will join over one thousand other outstanding high school student musicians in this gala event.

Eva Anashansley was accepted on Trumpet Chris Whethersby auditioned on Alto Saxophone
NAfME All-Northwest high school bands, orchestras and choirs will meet in Spokane, Washington February 12-15, 2015. Eva will rehearse and perform in concert under the direction of world-renowned conductors. Eva was selected from over 5,200 students who auditioned to participate in this outstanding event, which is managed by the Washington Music Educators Association.

Many professional musicians credit their All-Northwest experience as crucial in their decision to choose music as a career. Thousands of others whose career paths took them in different directions have great memories of participating in this inspiring and motivating musical experience and claim that it was a life-changing experience for them.

Well-known Northwesterners who have participated in past years’ All-Northwest groups include trumpeters Doc Severinson and Allen Vizzutti, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer’s Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist and columnist David Horsey, 2008 National Teacher of the Year Andrea Peterson, and jazz saxophonist Kenny G.

Alcohol, Phone Use were Factors in Pat & Mike's Collision
Chelan County Sheriff Greg Kennedy - November 17, 2014
Alcohol, Phone Use were Factors in Pat & Mike's Collision
The Chelan County Sheriff has released an official statement regarding the vehicle accident that occurred Wednesday evening just before 11 p.m. You can read our previous story HERE .

From the press release:

On November 19 at just before 11:00 PM, Rivercom communications received an alarm call from Pat and Mike’s store located at 53 South Lakeshore in Chelan. A responsible party arrived at the store and observed some major damage to the wall and believed someone crashed through the wall and then fled. It wasn’t until Deputies arrived did they discover a vehicle that had driven into the building, was in fact still inside inside the building.

The vehicle, a black 2013 Ford Explorer was being driven by 23 year old Justyn Corter of Chelan. He was northbound on Hwy 97 and left the roadway at SR 971, just missing the guard rail and gas pumps of the store. The vehicle crashed through the wall and stopped deep inside the building causing a large amount of damage.

Corter was transported to the Lake Chelan Community Hospital where he was treated and released with non-life threatening injuries.

The owner of the store was notified and there was an attempt to tow the vehicle out of the store, but before they started, it was determined to be too dangerous, as the structural integrity of the building was compromised. It was decided to tow the vehicle out in the daylight after the building was shored up a bit to facilitate a safe removal of the vehicle.

Alcohol and cell phone operation was a factor in the collision, which is still being investigated.

The Dangers of Turkey Fryers
Chelan Fire and Rescue Faye Barker - November 20, 2014
The Dangers of Turkey Fryers
NFPA discourages the use of outdoor gas-fueled turkey fryers that cook the turkey in hot oil. The use of turkey fryers can lead to devastating burns, other injuries and the destruction of property.
Why Turkey Fryers are Dangerous
  • Hot oil may splash or spill during the cooking. Contact between hot oil and skin could result in serious injury.
  • A hot oil spill can happen with fryers designed for outdoor use using a stand. The fryer could tip over or collapse causing the hot oil to spill. Newer counter top units using a solid base appear to reduce this risk. NFPA does not believe the risks of either type of turkey fryer to be acceptable because of the large amount of hot oil involved and the speed and severity of burns.
  • In deep frying, oil is heated to temperatures of 350° Fahrenheit or more. Cooking oil is combustible. If it is heated above its cooking temperature, its vapors can ignite.
  • Propane-fired turkey fryers must be used outdoors. They are very popular for Thanksgiving. Many parts of the country may have rain or snow at this time of year. If rain or snow hits the hot cooking oil, the oil may splatter or turn to steam, leading to burns.
  • Turkeys must be completely thawed before placing in the fryer, because a partially thawed turkey will cause the oil to splatter causing serious burns.
  • The fryers use a lot of oil, about five gallons. Considering the size and weight of the turkey, extreme caution must be taken when placing and removing the turkey from the fryer to be sure it is not dropped back into the fryer, splattering the oil on the chef.
OIL-LESS FRYERS

NFPA urges those who prefer fried turkey to look for grocery stores, specialty food retailers, and restaurants that sell deep fried turkeys, or consider a new type of “oil-less” turkey fryer.

Vehicle Plows Into Pat & Mikes Convenience Store Late Wednesday Evening
PHP-Nuke Nov 20, 2014 ~ By Jerry Isenhart / Photos by Will Isenhart & Todd Kelly
Vehicle Plows Into Pat & Mikes Late Wednesday Evening
UPDATE: Thursday Morning: Thanks to GoLakeChelan's Todd Kelly we add daytime photos taken Thursday morning at Pat & Mikes. These better show the apparent route of the vehicle as it plowed into the popular convenience store, and a better look inside the store - where the vehicle remained as of early Thursday morning.

It is our understanding that electrical and structural issues made removal of the car unsafe until Chelan PUD was able to completely shut down power to the location and officials chose to wait for daylight and a safer time to shore up the heavily damaged structure. We will have more on this story soon.

CLICK HERE AND STEP THROUGH MORE PHOTOS

As shown in this annotated photo, a vehicle apparently plowed through the east wall of Pat & Mike's around 11 PM Wednesday evening, doing major damage to the popular convenience store located at the intersection of Highway 97A and the South Shore road.

Cause of the accident, driver of the vehicle, and other details of the accident were unavailable when Will Isenhart snapped this photo and photo library about 11:15 p.m.

GoLakeChelan will have more on this story when authorities release the information. Units from local Fire/ EMS and Law Enforcement were all on the scene promptly as shown in the photo library.

Public invited to comment on future transportation projects
WSDOT Nancy Huntley, WSDOT Local Programs - November 19, 2014
Click Here for the STIP document
Public invited to comment on future transportation projects
Feedback on projects list welcome Nov. 18 – Dec. 17

After months of collaborating with local and regional transportation planning organizations, the Washington State Department of Transportation is ready to present its annual list of future statewide transportation-improvement projects to the public for review and comment.

Anyone is welcome to provide feedback on WSDOT’s draft of the 2015–2018 Statewide Transportation Improvement Program (STIP) beginning Tuesday, Nov. 18, until Wednesday, Dec. 17. The 30-day comment period is the last step of a process that finishes near where it began: talking with local residents, leaders and planners in communities across the state. Any comments WSDOT receives will be sent to the appropriate local-planning organization for consideration.

About the projects list
More than 1,100 transportation-improvement projects statewide utilizing $2.6 billion in federal funds are included in the 2015–2018 STIP. Improvement projects include pavement overlays, roadway widening, bridge replacement or repair, signal systems, safety enhancements, bicycle and pedestrian facilities, and transit facilities.

WSDOT developed the project list in coordination with metropolitan and rural transportation planning organizations statewide to ensure that projects are consistent with local, regional and state transportation plans.

About the STIP
The STIP is a four-year, prioritized program of federally funded transportation projects. The list also includes some state and local transportation projects. A new four-year STIP is created every year, and projects may carry over as they move from design to permitting and, ultimately, to construction.

Projects included in the STIP are funded by a combination of federal, state and local sources. Federal-aid projects must be included in the STIP before the Federal Highway Administration or Federal Transit Administration can authorize the expenditure of federal funds.

The 2014-17 STIP is also available online. A similar, searchable database of the 2015-18 STIP will be created in early 2015, following FHWA and FTA approval. Some county projects are not included in the draft STIP. By state law, counties are required to complete their transportation-improvement programs by the end of December, and their projects will incorporated into the final version in January.

How to participate
Written comments can be sent to:

Fatality Accident Claims Three Lives
Douglas County Sheriff Report Undersheriff Don Culp, DCSD - November 19, 2014
Fatality Accident Claims Three Lives
Douglas County Sheriff's Office
Reference: DCSO case 14D05978, Fatal Traffic Collision

On November 18, 2014 at about 07:45 AM, Douglas County deputies were dispatched to a report of a one vehicle roll over traffic collision in the area of County Roads “P” NE and “27” NE. This location is in the northern portion of Douglas County approximately 17 miles east of Bridgeport. The report indicated there were three victims in the collision and all were deceased.

Investigation revealed that a Dodge van was traveling north on Road “P”, which is a paved roadway. At the intersection of roads “P” and “27”, the roadway turns to gravel. The vehicle proceeded straight through the intersection onto the gravel portion of Road “P” but was on the south bound side of the road. It appears the driver attempted to move over to the north bound side of the roadway but over-steered. The driver then over-corrected back to the left causing the vehicle to slide. When the vehicle reached the west shoulder of the roadway, it rolled over several times coming to rest on its top in the field. An adult male and adult female were both ejected from the vehicle and were deceased at the scene. A young toddler aged child was located deceased inside the vehicle still secured in a car seat.

It is believed the collision occurred sometime prior to 4:00 PM on November 17th as deputies have learned that one person drove through the area at about 4:00 PM on the 17th and saw the vehicle in the field but did not report it to law enforcement. It appears that a second person stopped at the scene at about 4:30 AM on November 18th but did not see anyone around the vehicle. That individual later made a report of what he thought was an abandoned vehicle at the scene. The Fire Chief from Fire District 3 went to the scene and located the victims.

The identities of the victims will not be released at this time pending notification of next of kin.

The incident is still under investigation.
