The River Dogs have a long history of success, and this year is no exception.

Pateros strong: Sports won’t be postponed

PATEROS — In the wake of devastation, determined communities seem to find a common theme to rally around. In Pateros, that theme could be as small as a phrase on a hat. The hats, which read, “Pateros Strong, Rising from the Ashes 2014” will be available at Pateros High School and various Pateros businesses as early as this morning.

Young drivers fueled by adrenaline

EAST WENATCHEE — It’s hard to imagine a scenario in which a champion track star blows away the competition in the 100-meter dash, but isn’t allowed to walk onto the track to compete.
