  1. ROCK ISLAND — About 20 workers from CW Concrete and Wenatchee Sand & Gravel took the ice-bucket challege that has swept the country to new heights on Wednesday. They raised money for the ALS Association by standing under a front-end loader bucket as it soaked them with ice water.
  2. As schools get going, it’s interesting to note when high schools start make a difference in student learning. Circadian rhythms are the reason, pushing teenagers to sleep later and stay up later at night.
  3. Rufus and I rode Link yesterday — a half-hour trip in town, and another half-hour to East Wenatchee — as part of a promotional event for the public transit system’s city shuttle buses.
  4. “This engine pulled the longest train ever to come off the W-O Line.”
  5. WENATCHEE — City officials favor annexing part of the Olds Station area and a merger of fire districts as ways to start digging the city out of financial trouble.
