WENATCHEE — Pat Palmer was just closing up his downtown shoe store last Thursday evening when he says he was nearly run down by a skateboarder riding on the sidewalk. “He was coming down (the sidewalk) about 100 mph,” Palmer said. “Sometimes they slow down a little, but a lot of time pedestrians just have to get out of their way. ...
