  1. LEAVENWORTH — A defective computer part interrupted fiber-optic data service to an estimated 2,500 Chelan County PUD customers Saturday between Wenatchee and Leavenworth.
  2. WENATCHEE — Folks out along the Wenatchee stretch of the Columbia River Sunday observed a tiny tug boat pushing a “lived-on looking” barge that could have jumped off the pages of a Mark Twain novel.
  3. ENTIAT — Eager beavers sunk their timber-toppling choppers into 17 of the tender, recently planted trees in this city’s new Columbia River-side park.
  4. WENATCHEE — Little was known about salmon and their habits in the late 1930s, when the U.S. government gave its director of fisheries B.M. Brennan a year to conduct a “thorough analysis” of how to preserve salmon runs into the upper Columbia River, which was soon to be blocked by Grand Coulee Dam.
