  1. OLYMPIA — A Wenatchee resident who for years has guided state water projects in the Columbia Basin has been named as the new director of the state Department of Agriculture.
  2. From a carved wooden box resting heavily on his dining room floor, Ellis Robinson lifted two large volumes of an 80-year-old journal that he believes reveal the hidden lives of two West Coast artists.
  3. WENATCHEE — The city’s post office takes its first step Saturday to move into new digs and, say national mail managers, a new era of U.S. Postal Service efficiency.
  4. American Shoe Shop, one of downtown Wenatchee’s oldest businesses, is getting ready to strap on its boots and take a hike — a very short hike — to its first new location in more than half a century.
