Roundabout the better option, city says

File photo
A roundabout like this one will arrive downtown if the city's plan succeed. Despite early opposition from sectors of the community, plans remain in place.

Roundabout the better option, city says
Cashmere's director of planning and building Mark Botello said the roundabout the city plans to install downtown is still the better option for the intersection of Cottage Avenue and Aplets Way.

Botello said the roundabout is part of larger scope of work that seeks to improve Aplets Way, from Highway 2 to the railroad tracks.

Regarding the roundabout itself, Botello reminded citizens that it will be mountable to make the turn easier for trucks. Asked whether that would tempt other vehicles to imitate the trucks and mount the roundabout, Botello said "That's going to happen no matter what.

City Roundup: It's happening in Cashmere
Cashmere and Chelan County are still waiting on more funds for the Goodwin Bridge, the city's director of planning Mark Botello said.

"It's early, early grant-finding stages," he said, adding that the county has about $12 million but other grants are needed.

"It's a big project, so it's going to take multiple years to build a project," he said. All the money is not quite there yet for a project that not only requires a new bridge, but a new road on to and out of the bridge

A presentation comes at the Cashmere Council Meeting May 11 pinpointing the options for the bridge project.

"The county hasn't even decided what type of bridge they are going to put up there," noting that the project is a group effort between city, and county and the transportation council that involves both cities and counties.

Coaches' wives: Meeting in the middle
Megan Carlson laughs at the question, although she has probably answered it many times. She is a Cascade graduate, her husband a Chelan graduate: Who do they root for?

As it turns out, neither. She and her husband decided when they got married that asking each other to live in the other's hometown would be unfair. So they compromised and found a place in Cashmere.

The choice seems to be going well. Not only has her husband, Jeff won three state championships coaching the Bulldogs' baseball team, the Class of 2014 chose Megan to speak at its graduation.

"We are Bulldogs through and through. We love our hometowns, but we are Bulldogs," Megan said.

Now it's not unusual to see the couple's two children wear Cashmere gear as they watch Dad stand guard on the third base line. And up until a few years ago, Megan kept stats at the games. In the meantime, Cashmere has beaten both Cascade and Chelan several times and onlookers have yet to catch the Carlsons commiserating.

High school students teach horticulture at Vale
The stigmatized third-graders, holding on to their pistols, still walked with style.

Okay, so they weren't bang-bang pistols, but pistils. It wasn't with style, it was with a style, as in the part in the center of a flower.

And they only were stigmatized because as curious third-graders do, they had taken a big whiff of the flowers during class, getting some of that sticky stigma -the part of the pistil where pollen germinates-on their faces.

It's all good say Dani Kenoyer and Kelley Simpson.

The two 12th-graders from Cashmere High School's Future Farmers of America chapter, taught two lessons on plants and soils each week for four weeks to third-graders at Vale Elementary School. The seniors will write a portfolio on their experience and hold a presentation at this year's FFA State competition in Pullman, with a $500 scholarship on the line if they win.

Legion sends two to Boys State
Jonathan Mangas and Seth Meros will represent Cashmere High School at Evergreen Boys State, the annual conference that teaches high schoolers about the work of government.

For one week, Mangas, Meros and many other teenagers from around Washington will become participants in fictitious, but realistic government agencies.

The conference will occur next June 21-27 in Stanwood's Warm Beach Conference Center in northwest Washington.

Before they go, Mangas will ask one of his relatives for pointers for himself and Mangas. His uncle is the Chelan County Auditor and a Cashmere City Council member.

At Boys State, they will get a taste of a politician's life, Moore said, with agency meetings deep into the night and an early wake-up call to follow. They get to pass laws, run for office, and give speeches. They will also belong to political parties -the Federal Party or the National Party.

Cashmere rebounds from loss, thumping Lynden Christian
Cashmere rinsed the bitter taste of a midweek road loss to Quincy by thrashing the visiting Lynden Christian Lyncs 16-2 in Peshastin Saturday.

Softball splits back-to-back doubleheaders
Cashmere lost two to Nooksack and won two against Blaine in a 30-hour period last week.

The Bulldogs came close to taking at least one of the games against Nooksack on Friday, but they also came close to being shut out against the Pioneers.

Nooksack led 10-0 in the sixth inning of Game 1 before Cashmere scored five in the bottom of the sixth. An early seventh-inning run shrunk the deficit to four, but the Bulldogs got no closer.

In Game 2, Cashmere was tied at two after three innings and down 5-4 after four, before Nooksack pulled away to earn an 8-5 victory.

"Nooksack was a good team, they hit the ball well and ran the bases well," head coach Bob Van Lith wrote in an email. "We gave them a good fight. We just didn't get timely hits when we needed them."

Cashmere loses on PKs to Tonasket
Down two goals on the road against Tonasket, the Cashmere soccer team got to the 70th minute and simply quit.

Quit defending, that is. Encouraged by their bench the team decided to go all out and try to score at least one on the Tigers in the last 10 minutes. The Bulldogs figured, if Tonasket scores again because of this tactic, so what? They were already ahead of Cashmere.

"I made a few movements, I told the team, 'You move there, you move over there and you move over there," head coach Juan Valle said in Spanish. "'And let's go attack them.'"

For eight and a half minutes, the strategy didn't bear fruit. Then, in 90 seconds, Adrian Urrutia scored twice to tie the game. And, Valle said, there could have been more goals.
