Vicki Olson Carr | Shot and discus records fall in Chelan

Before Bill Veroske graduated in 1942, he set a Chelan High School record in the shot put with a heave of 50 feet, 7 inches. His strength and power were gained from stacking green lumber during summers at Harris sawmill in Ardenvoir and working in the apple orchard at the family ranch on the Entiat River.

Dan Sollom | My new gig: there's a new golf marshal in town

Back in the 1800s when the new marshal came to town, the mayor gave him a gun and a badge and sent him out to uphold the law. Not so, it seems, when you’re the new course marshal at Desert Canyon Golf Resort. Nope. No badge and no gun. It’s probably just as well because unlike the old west, being a course marshal is much more civilized. Or so I thought.
