  1. GEORGE — Three Ephrata residents and two Moses Lake residents were injured early Wednesday when their vehicle left Highway 283, four miles north of George, after the driver fell asleep at the wheel.
  2. LAKE WENATCHEE — Residents of this heavily forested mecca for outdoor recreation and outdoorsy living had a scare last weekend, when officials feared that the Wolverine Fire had spread into the upper Chiwawa River drainage — a rugged, well-fueled and tinder-dry passage way to many lake-area homes, cabins and businesses.
  3. WENATCHEE — In the wee hours of Aug. 12, a bicycle-riding thief rode to the Jiffy Lube on South Mission Street, dug up a 2-year-old Japanese maple from a small flower bed there and rode off with it on his bike.
  4. FIRE ZONES — Power outages can happen even in areas where crews have repaired fire damage, PUD officials say, if fire managers request that areas be de-energized for firefighter safety.
  5. ENTIAT — Fire crews and managers were divising a strategy Monday to slow the southward spread of the 52,001-acre, lightning-caused Wolverine Fire, which is pressing into steep-and-timbered terrain at the top of the Entiat River drainage, a gateway to populated areas along Entiat River Road.
