  1. Part two of a two-part report: No one panicked at Holden Village during the evacuation of staff and volunteers in late July. But the drive out on the 10-mile road to the boat landing at Lucerne was eerie, said Nancy Rerucha Borges, the transportation lead at the village. “There were flames and some things were still burning but the forest in that area had burned through,” she said. “I felt safe but there was still danger from falling rocks and trees”
  2. LUCERNE — The big-gun sprinklers are silent now, and metallic protection wrap is coming off buildings. In the distance, smoke wafts from small fires burning in tree stumps and exposed roots. There is a faint smell of smoke in the air.
  3. WENATCHEE — A 21-year-old Wenatchee man was shot in the thigh early Saturday morning during an altercation with a man who came to his residence.
  4. WENATCHEE — Mike Lamon has been over the shooting hundreds of times — in interviews, in casual conversation, in his daydreams and in his nightmares.
