WENATCHEE — Artemio Salas held court against the bumper of a long-parked car, grateful for his new hat. The homeless orchard worker and commercial fisherman, troubled by failing eyesight, accepted the knit cap and other sundries from Mariah Terhaar and her team as they assessed the Wenatchee Valley’s unhoused population Thursday night. Salas, 60, is one of about eight men who bunk in their cars south of the Sen. George Sellar Bridge in Wenatchee. He’s been there seven months, working whatever pruning jobs he can find and waiting to see a doctor about his eyes.
