  1. NCW — Fish biologists have known since 2009 that Northern pike — a non-native, invasive and predatory fish that eats other fish — had made its way into Lake Roosevelt, the Columbia River reservoir behind Grand Coulee Dam.
  2. NELSON, B.C. — More than 60 years after the Sinixt tribe was declared extinct, the Provincial Court of British Columbia on Monday gave the aboriginal tribal members back their history, and their identity.

  4. CHELAN — Supporters of building a new hospital in Chelan will host a community forum from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the Chelan High School Performing Arts Center.
  5. NCW — The Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest plans to burn some 9,000 acres to improve forest health.
