Evening News November 23

1175

Good evening and welcome to NCWLIFE News. I’m Grant Olson. Before we get to today’s top stories, let’s take a quick look outside our weather window:

 

For those watching on our Facebook, tune in to LocalTel channel 12 or Charter channel 19, or stream us live at NCWLIFE.com for the full evening newscast tonight. And now, a few of the stories we’re following for you tonight—a dog is attacked in Wenatchee, the PUD slates tree removal work in Cashmere and we’ll have a few local feature items for you. But first, we begin tonight:

A Semi-truck rollover yesterday (Wed.) afternoon caused major delays and traffic slow-downs on Highway two, 10 miles North of East Wenatchee near Orondo.

 

The semi, driven by 43-year old Audias Castro-Rosales of Wenatchee, was traveling east on Highway 2 when it left the roadway, overcorrected and rolled onto its driver’s side. The truck then slid into a guardrail and came to rest blocking both westbound lanes.

 

The Freightliner Semi and box trailer were loaded with 80-thousand pounds of apples. Highway2 was completely closed late Wednesday night for a time while crews worked to remove the wreckage. Castro-Rosales sustained minor injuries in the accident and refused aid.

A Pomeranian dog was seriously injured late Tuesday night when it was attacked by what a witness described as a Pit Bull-type dog.

 

The dog attack occurred on the corner of Mission Street and Antles Street in Wenatchee between 9:30 and 10:00. The owner of the Pomeranian says the attacking dog was brindle-colored with no distinguishing markings nor was it wearing a collar. After the attack, the owner of the Pit Bull type dog ran off towards South Viewdale Street. If anyone has any information identifying the attack dog or its owner, please call Animal Care and Control at (509) 662-9577.

Chelan PUD, working with the City of Cashmere maintenance crews, have identified 18 of the 57 Norway Spruce trees along Evergreen Drive in Cashmere as hazardous to the public and to electrical and fiber infrastructure.

 

 

 

The trees, anywhere from 60 to 80 feet in height, are approximately 85 years old. PUD Forestry Operations Manager Bill Sanborn fears a storm could cause the trees to come down and threaten public safety and electrical and fiber equipment. The PUD and the City plan to begin work on Wednesday, Nov. 29, if the weather allows. The crews estimate that it will take four or five days to remove all of the trees. Evergreen Drive will be closed during the duration of the tree removal, except to local residents.

Coming up, we’ll hear from the salvation army this holiday season and spotlight a Lake Chelan business serving free thanksgiving dinners for the last 20 years. I’m Grant Olson and you’re watching NCWLIFE News.

Bells will soon be ringing once again in the Wenatchee Valley as the local Salvation Army kicks off its Red Kettle drive. Salvation Army of Douglas and Chelan Counties Major, Ralph Jimenez, says some kettles are already out but the bell-ringers will be out in full force on Black Friday. . .

 

Jimenez says the Salvation Army is always looking for Red Kettle volunteers and those interested can call (509) 662-5742 for more information.

Today is the 20th Year that the Apple Cup Café has provided the city of Chelan a free community Thanksgiving Dinner. Started by his Father 20 years ago, Ryan Peterson has continued to provide that community Dinner for the area even after his purchase of the business. Ryan sat down with Jay Seabeck and talked about how they continue to make this holiday tradition work.
