  1. WENATCHEE — “Crazy Legs” will be poking through the soil soon, not far from “Horsefeathers” in Linda Holmes-Cook’s second “tribute” dahlia garden behind Pybus Public Market.
  2. WENATCHEE — Restrictions on campfires and fire pits and a ban on fireworks will be in effect in unincorporated Chelan County starting Friday to reduce chances of wildfire during the year’s hottest, driest months.
  3. UPDATE:  PESHASTIN -- Power has been restored to most Chelan County PUD customers affected by an animal-caused outage at 7 a.m., utility officials have reported. The community's downtown area is expected to remain without power until around noon, while crews fix a transformer.
  4. WENATCHEE — When a basement dryer fire closed the familiar doors of Hayes Cleaners Thursday, a lot of people’s clothes were inside. And still are.
  5. WENATCHEE — The two-alarm fire Thursday afternoon at Hayes Cleaners was likely caused by lint build-up in a large, commercial clothes dryer or its exhaust venting, fire investigators say.
