Waiting game begins for Riverside Park
Twenty minutes.

That's all the time the Cashmere tandem of city official Mark Botello and councilmember David Erickson had to make their pitch in Olympia for $500,000 of state money for Riverside Park.

Thirteen of those minutes went with the presentation before the Washington State Recreation Conservation Office, and seven went to field questions.

Lucky 13 and lucky seven? Cashmere planning director Botello and Co. will find out in October.

Until then, they wait optimistic that little ol' Cashmere will snag half a mil, despite having not nearly the resources other presenters did.

Midnight practice kicks off soccer season
Cashmere's girls soccer team opened its 2014 season with something common on college campuses, but a bit of a rarity on high school ones.

Midnight Madness, a late-night, early-morning celebration of the start of a new season has become a tradition for the Cashmere team, which has done it for seven years.

This year, players began gathering outside Cashmere Soccer Field around 11:30 p.m Aug. 24. Despite the late hour and the fact that school would start in three days, nobody dragged feet. Music, singing and laughter filled the air as more players turned up.

Mosquitos and West Nile pose threat
With dozens of mosquitoes and with the first case of in-state contagion occurring in Walla Walla County last week, regional and state health agencies are increasing prevention efforts.

Earlier this month, the first case of in-state contagion appeared in Walla Walla County. Two more cases have already appeared, one in Grays Harbor County and another in King County, but in both cases the virus was acquired out of state.

Cashmere's Anya Tronson named new soccer coach at WVC
Anya Tronson, a Cashmere High School grad is the new associate head coach for the women's program at Wenatchee Valley College.

Busy summer of trips and tiaras for Cashmere grad
You know you've had quite the summer when moving from Cashmere to southern California to start college ends up being only the third-coolest thing you did.

Such is the life of one Sarah Fitzpatrick, 18, former Cashmere student who will start attending Biola University, just outside of Anaheim this fall.

But what she will remember about the warm months of 2014 is not the time she spent packing boxes or looking for the right dorm room, but the time she spent in Europe as a goodwill ambassador with other American youths, or the time she spent competing in the National American Miss Washington pageant.

WDFW says stray cougar was bloated, starving
Despite appearances, a necropsy indicated that the cougar killed near Brender Canyon was starving when he died.

The animal, a male adult about six years old died the day after he killed a Cashmere family's pet. Jerry Humrich found his wife's dog's carcass, and spotted the cougar about 10 feet away. Humrich shot him instantly.

Department of Fish and Wildlife Sgt. Dan Klump said the WDFW officer on the scene of the kill saw the cougar and it looked healthy at first, but time had passed since the cougar had died and it had become bloated, making it look fatter than it was when it was alive.

Cougar, not coyote, killed after it kills couple's dog
What Kate Humrich first thought was a daring coyote, turned out to be a cougar. And what looked like a stealthy catch for the feline, it turned out to be its last meal.

Humrich, a resident of Brender Canyon for 22 years is mourning the loss of her dog, Beanie, at the paws of a cougar. But the animal lover inside her is also mourning the loss of the cougar, killed after her husband went out to look for the dog's body and instead found both dead dog and, 15 feet away, live cougar.

A season to remember for Cashmere hardballers
The team didn't make the playoffs, the coach resigned at the end of the season,and they played a pile of games with a cloud of smoke hovering nearby.

Was 2014 a great season for the Wenatchee AppleSox or what?

Well, if you ask the team's Cashmere imports this year, Cooper Elliott and Colton Loomis, it indeed was a great season. And home cooking, or in Loomis' case, friend's home cooking was only one of the reasons.

"It was 100 times better than anything I could have imagined," Elliott said. "The guys were amazing. When we went our separate ways, everyone was like brothers."

Farmers' Market going strong
In a small way, it's like bungee jumping.

It may not be as big a thrill, but opening a farmers' market stand does have things in common with impersonating a yo-yo from a tall bridge. They both require optimism, those who love it rarely miss a chance to do it, and bungee cords play a big part in its success.

The Cashmere Farmers' Market is in mid-jump now, hoping that things will turn out all right. Switched from its original Friday time, the vendors meet Sundays from 1-4 p.m. outside the Cashmere Museum, with bungee cords attaching weights to the canopies to protect them from the wind.

Authorities updated on mill site status
With a series of presentations, the Port of Chelan County brought a variety of community leaders up to date on a handful of projects.

Topics like the projected extension of the runway at Pangborn Airport, or the effect of the smoke on Leavenworth's tourism bottom line, appeared on the docket of the second of three "Port Side Lunches" the port will host this year.

No jumbo jets yet, but Pangborn Airport planning to grow
While it may never see Boeing jets the way Moses Lake's airport does, Pangborn Memorial Airport still has big plans for its future.

The Wenatchee Valley's largest airstrip is still too small for some planes. A planned runway extension might at least increase the number and size of the aircraft that currently use it, the airport's director Trent Moyers said at a Port of Chelan County meeting in Cashmere.
