  2. MISSION RIDGE — A small landslide that crossed a run at Mission Ridge Ski & Board Resort on Wednesday prompted the Okanogan-Wenatchee National Forest to close the ski area to hiking or other recreation.
  3. HOLDEN VILLAGE — A Rio Tinto official said Wednesday that the Holden Mine Cleanup Project will cost upwards of $500 million — nearly five times the cost initially projected six years ago, when the U.S. Forest Service and the mining company agreed on a plan to rehabilitate the old copper mine near Holden Village.
  4. OKANOGAN — Chelan County officials on Tuesday stressed that they aren’t encouraging Okanogan County to close its juvenile detention center and send their young offenders to another county.
