Quick work by fire departments contains blaze near Monitor
A fire that started in the late afternoon hours of Saturday burned between five and 10 acres but caused no injuries, fatalities or structural damage, Cashmere Fire Chief Matt Brunner said.

The fire, Brunner said, started on Kelly Road, west of Monitor, and it spread uphill, requiring a second alarm. Staff from Douglas County Fire, Chelan County Fire District 1, and personnel from fire departments and districts from Monitor, Dryden, Peshastin, Cashmere, and the United States Forest Service fought the blazes.

Riverside Center administrator John W. Bryant loses license
The future of the Cashmere Riverside Center is in flux after its administrator lost the state-issued license to run the facility.

John W. Bryant, a businessman and former city council member, had a business license that allowed him to operate the Riverside Center as JASCO. That license has been revoked effective Sept. 11, according to a Washington State Department of Revenue document.

The letter, posted outside City Hall as requested by the DOR, states that Bryant, doing business as JASCO, received a tax warrant in September of last year and another in June of this year.

New bathrooms arrive at Riverside Center
An old problem has a new solution at Riverside Center.

Long beset by rafters cutting across weddings and other ceremonies to use the Riverside Center bathrooms, the city of Cashmere has installed new facilities halfway between the center and the river boat ramp.

The bathrooms, made of concrete with a river rock design on its outer walls will be available to use later this week, city planning director Mark Botello said. The river rock matches the Welcome to Cashmere signs located on Aplets Way and on Cotlets Way.

The bathrooms contain automatic flushing toilets, automatic locking doors, hand dryers and sensor lights.

Health District warns of Enterovirus risks
The Chelan Douglas Health District is sounding the alarm about Enterovirus D68, which may have infected a Chelan County 5-year old. There are over 100 kinds of enteroviruses, which mainly cause colds or other relatively mild diseases, said CDHD Public Information Officer Mary Small, but this one seems to cause severe problems for some children with respiratory problems like Asthma.

There are two confirmed cases of EV-D68 in the Northwest, one child from King County and one from Snohomish County. Small said there are several other patients at Children's Hospital in Seattle with respiratory infections would could be EV-D68.

"There are 15 or so identified as possible cases, but they could be something else. It's going through the testing process at the CDC (Center for Disease Control) to see if they have this virus," Small said. "They are looking for this virus because of the outbreaks in other states."

Bronze a big part of community eye-catchers
One is a pig named after a motorcycle, the other is a pair of children, one of whom remains barefoot even when there's a foot of snow in the ground.

Two bronze statues, a couple of blocks away from each other, have become part of the Cashmere landscape, with the pig proving exceptionally popular.

The bronze pig, parked outside Country Boy's BBQ on Aplets Way, is named Harley, so baptized after Tom and Anitra Dew reached détente on their decision of whether to buy a bronze pig or a motorcycle.

Cashmere throttles Ki-Be; stout Royal squad next
Aided by a strong defense that helped overcome early mistakes, Cashmere defeated the Kiona-Benton Bears 41-6 in the football Bulldogs' home opener.

Cashmere's first two possessions ended in a fumble and an interception, but the defense held the fort together and kept the game a scoreless affair in the first quarter.

"The defense played outstanding," head coach Phil Zukowski said. "Once the offense got those turnovers out of the way, they really took over the game."

Jadon McCabe opened the scoring with 10 minutes left in the first half, on an eight-yard touchdown run. McCabe himself had the big stop on the next drive, halting Ki-Be on third-and-3 at the Bears' 45-yard line. Going for it -and failing- on fourth down, the visitors left Cashmere with great field position, on first and 10 at the Ki-Be 46.

Cashmere soccer team wins two out of three in busy week
The year of the long preseason continues for Cashmere with two victories against Connell and Ki-Be and a loss to Naches.

After three games in five days with two road trips, the team gets a reprieve of sorts with two games in two weeks, against Toppenish Sept. 25 and Ephrata Oct. 2.

Both games are at home, with kickoffs at 6 p.m. and 6:15 p.m. respectively.

The team learned plenty after its trio of matchups against South Central Athletic Conference competition. The Bulldogs took on a 3-0 lead against Connell before yielding a late penalty kick, then blanked Kiona-Benton 2-0 before dropping three early goals to Naches en route to a 4-2 loss.

"It was a good week," head coach Dennis Tronson said of his Bulldogs. "I think we are on the right track looking forward."

Cashmere volleyball team off to best start in years
Cashmere's volleyball team won its third game of the year Sept. 18, lifting its record to 3-1, all nonleague.

The record is the best start for the program since at least the 2010-11 season, and a sterling beginning for the Cashmere career of first-year coach Juan Sanchez.

The team won both matches last week, defeating Warden 3-2 on the road and rallying from one set down to beat Wapato at home 3-1.

Next up were two more away matches at White Swan Tuesday and Toppenish Thursday. The team hosts Kittitas Saturday at 6:30 p.m.

Besides the wins, the team looks more cohesive and organized on the floor, with a newfound toughness that allowed them to come back from six points down, 15-9 in the first set against Wapato to tie it at 16 with an ace by Delaney Strutzel and take the lead 17-16 with a kill by Sydnee Mongeon.

Cross country team runs in Wenatchee meet
There's a first time for everything in life. First steps, first kiss, first day of school, first time driving a car. And first day running a high school cross country meet.

Fifteen Cashmere runners at the Wenatchee Invitational Meet last Saturday were first-time high-school runners, and it showed, Head Coach Jeff Kenoyer said.

"Some of the kids were a little too excited at the start of the race and some of them paid for it," he wrote in an email. "Many of the runners went out too fast with their first mile split time being faster than either of the other mile split times. The run isn't quite as much fun when you go out to fast and are low on energy the rest of the race because of it."

Runners prepping for strange days ahead
In a year of absurdity, the schedule for the Cashmere High School cross country team astounds for how normal its immediate future looks.

Meets in places like Wenatchee, Leavenworth, Ellensburg and Shoreline give the list a business-as-usual feel much different from that of other fall sports.

Things get funky quickly for the Bulldogs once the regular season ends. The Caribou Trail League Championship meet will determine who goes to state. No districts, no regionals, nothing. Win and you're in.

"It's not all the way solidified," said Jeff Kenoyer, the team's first-year head coach. "But what it looks like now is we will have a race with four schools. The team that wins goes to state and then the rest of it, if there are any kids in the top five that aren't in that team, they also get to go."
