There’s gold in them thar’ streams. Joe Gill of Wenatchee pans for gold in the Wenatchee River, just downstream from the Sleepy Hollow Bridge. Gill said he’s been panning for gold off-and-on for the last 30 years.
North Wenatchee over the Wenatchee River bridge was down to one lane this past weekend as crews cleaned the bridge. Doing the work were crews from the state Department of Transportation. The cleaning will let inspectors get a better view of the bridge joints.
