Chuck Slowe challenging incumbent county commissioner
Former college professor and longtime pundit Chuck Slowe wants to unseat Chelan County Commissioner Keith Goehner, calling the three-time incumbent unprepared and unethical.

"I'm quite troubled with the record of my opponent," Slowe said. "I really feel and I felt almost from the beginning that he was way in over his head."

Goehner, Slowe said, "doesn't have the background that I have in consulting, the background I have in education." The incumbent from Dryden, Slowe added, has not grown intellectually during his time in office and "12 years with him is enough".

Spotter time is well spent time
No such thing as a useless phone call for Andrew Brown.

Brown, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said that the NWS has never received a phone call from a spotter that was a waste of time.

Spotters are the eyes and ears of the NWS in places where its radars sometimes don't reach. Brown offered a training session for spotters in Wenatchee two weeks ago, in which he reiterated the importance of the spotter's job and his or her calls when describing a weather event.

PUD leader Wright lays out snapshot of utility at civic meeting in Malaga
There's cheap, very cheap, and then there's Chelan County Public Utility District cheap, unless you ask Chelan County PUD customers, says the utility's CEO Richard Wright.

At a presentation before Chelan County community leaders in Malaga, Wright once again highlighted this company's calling card, power rates, by comparing them to the state and the national averages.

Washington's average power rates stand among the two lowest in the nation. The Chelan County PUD's power rates sit at a one-fourth of the national average and one-third of the Washington average.

And yet, he said with a smile, when the Public Utility District conducted a survey among customers, the main complaint of its unsatisfied customers was the PUD's rates were too high.

New pastor arrives at Methodist church
When it comes to being a pastor, Wendy Riddle knows the long and the short of it.

Long as in in 12 years in Pasco, serving the faithful at the United Methodist Church there.

Short as in two weeks as the pastor in Colfax, her next stop after Pasco. Fourteen days into her ministry there, a car wreck almost took her life and forced her to stop for two years.

So if you see her smiling particularly big this week, it's because as of July 16 she's been the pastor in Cashmere for longer than 14 days.

Wait continues for Cashmere family and for their child they have never met
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. For Dawna Fox, a picture with words is worth a thousand days of wait.

Primply sitting on a corner of her living room in Cashmere is a collage of photos of a young boy she has never met in person. The collage sits atop a small square that reads "Never, never, never, never give up."

The boy in the picture is Prin. Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo and adopted legally by Fox and her husband Travis, he has never met her adoptive parents and has not heard from them in almost a year, since the Congolese government put a moratorium on adoptees leaving the country.

Pool's staffing raises a stink
Cashmere Mayor Jeff Gomes said people defecating in the pool -and not staff shortages- have forced the pool to close in past weeks.

"It's got nothing to do with understaffing," the mayor said Sunday. "There was excrement in the pool and the Health Department requires us to close it for 24 hours."

State health regulations require a minimum 24-hour closure if the feces are runny, to let the water recirculate with an increased dosage of chlorine. If the feces are solid, pool personnel may remove people from the water, clean the pool, spike the chemical content of the water, wash the filter, and reopen on the same day.

Cashmere grad Lippert returns to town as Wenatchee coach
Lost in the hoopla of Celebrate Cashmere weekend was the fact that teenagers from all across the state met in Cashmere to play basketball at the annual Bulldog Challenge.

And lost among that parade of unfamiliar hoopsters was a familiar face: Rachel Lippert, who graduated from Cashmere in 2010 and who showed up at her old gym as an assistant coach for Wenatchee High School's girls basketball program.

Lippert, who played for the Bulldogs during her prep career, is an assistant coach with the freshman team at WHS. During this tournament, she served as the assistant coach for Wenatchee's B squad, except on June 29, where the head coach's absence obligated her to take the reins of the team.

Not bad for a lunch lady.

Agricultural issues team finishes fifth at FFA state
The Agricultural Issues team from Cashmere's Future Farmers of America chapter finished fifth at the state competition last month in Pullman.

The team put on a presentation on the issue of Arctic Apple, a genetically engineered fruit from Canada that does not brown, and whose pending approval by the Food and Drug Administration is and will be the source of much contention among American growers.

"People are afraid of it and they don't know if it's safe," team member Ellie York said. The team's advisor Rusty Finch picked that issue. A reason for the choice is the fact that this apple was created just north of the border in the Okanagan Valley of Canada.
