Good evening and welcome to the NCWLIFE Evening News. I’m Grant Olson. Before we get to today’s top news stories, let’s take a quick look outside our weather window:
And now, a few of the stories we’re following for you tonight, Moses Lake Deputies chasing a fleeing domestic violence suspect found the man seeking refuge atop a shed in order to avoid contact with one of their K9s earlier this week, we will tell you how that turned out. And, Ideal Option, Washington state’s largest provider of Medication Assisted Treatment for individuals suffering from opioid use disorders, has opened a new location in East Wenatchee.
But first, we begin tonight. . .
New safety upgrades continue at the Chelan County Regional Jail under County Commissioner oversight. The Wenatchee jail is undergoing significant changes both structurally and operationally to address concerns of inadequate staffing and training as well as unsafe work conditions at the facility. Commissioner Kevin Overbay provided NCWLIFE a status report on the project after Jail Manager, Bill Larsen presented the board with his long-term strategic plan earlier this week. . .
Overbay added that his board is also negotiating a possible deal with Douglas County to house some of their inmates in Wenatchee rather than transporting them to Okanogan County, which is their jail of record. Overbay says it would only involve pre-trial prisoners charged with minor misdemeanor offenses.
Moses Lake Deputies chasing a fleeing domestic violence suspect found the man seeking refuge atop a shed in order to avoid contact with one of their K9s earlier this week. Deputies on Monday night were hunting for 36-year-old Gabriel C. Correa of Moses Lake for an alleged domestic violence assault and an outstanding warrant.
Deputies found him and his car near Stratford Road Northeast and Road 7-Northeast and tried to pull him over. Correa led deputies on a short pursuit, which ended when Correa crashed his car into the porch of a mobile home at 9998 Maple Drive Northeast, where he jumped out of the car and ran.
Deputy Tyson Voss and K9 Edo showed up and tracked Correa to the opposite side of the trailer park. As Edo closed in, Correa jumped atop a metal shed to avoid contact with the dog. Correa was taken into custody without further incident and lodged in the Grant County Jail for investigation of fourth-degree assault-domestic violence and an outstanding warrant.
Ideal Option, Washington state’s largest provider of Medication Assisted Treatment for individuals suffering from opioid use disorders, has opened a new location in East Wenatchee.
The new location will provide North Central Washington residents struggling with addictions to opioids and other drugs increased access to evidence-based and personalized addiction treatment. This includes comprehensive physical and mental assessments. The East Wenatchee location adds to Ideal Option’s treatment network across Central and Eastern Washington, including its Tri-Cities headquarters and locations in Yakima, Sunnyside, Walla Walla, Spokane, and Pullman.

Welcome back, and in other news…
A settlement has reportedly been reached between former State House Representative, Matt Manweller and his former employer, Central Washington University. Several news organizations including NW News Network report Manweller’s lawsuit against the University was settled for $155,000 dollars.
In his original court filing Manweller had sought $2 million dollars in damages. The action was brought in Kittitas County Superior Court after Manweller was fired from his position as a political science Professor in August.
CWU alleged in a workplace conduct investigation that Manweller had engaged in inappropriate behavior with female students over the course of 13 years. Court documents say CWU did not admit any liability and will not pay Manweller’s attorney fees. Manweller has steadfastly denied any wrongdoing but in subsequent media interviews he acknowledged he might have been too casual or flirtatious with female students. He won reelection to the House but had declaredbefore the election that he would not serve.
Today the community organization, Wenatchee 1 Million Cups, celebrated their one year anniversary. Started by the Kauffman Foundation in 2012, 1 Million Cups is a free monthly event meant to bring together local entrepreneurs and community members. Together they help educate, engage and inspire each other over coffee and conversation. Volunteer and organizer, Stacy Luckensmeyer gives an overview of the last year. . .

How about those Mariners?! And how about former Wenatchee AppleSox Marco Gonzales?!
The left-hander went 8-and-a-third innings to help Seattle beat Los Angeles 2-to-1 last night at T-Mobile Park. He allowed just one run on 4-hits while striking out four.
Mitch Haniger’s RBI-double in the 6th tied the game at 1-1. Then, Daniel Vogelbach stepped up with one out in the 8th and delivered a 2-2 pitch over the center field wall on a line drive to give the Mariners the winning margin.
Anthony Swarzak came on with runners on the corners for the Angels in the 9th. He struck out Albert Pujols and then induced a game-ending ground ball to Dee Gordon at second to send Seattle to its best start in franchise history at 7-and-1.
The Mariners have a travel day today before beginning a three-game series in Chicago against the White Sox Thursday at 11:10am.
For the first time this entire post-season, the Wenatchee Wild were blown out last night by a score of 7-to-2 at Vernon…
The Vipers led 1-nothing when it unleashed three goals in the second and three more in the third. It was the first time since the fourth game of the season that the Wild have allowed 7-goals in a game. And strangely, it was seven different Vipers who lit the lamp.
For Wenatchee, the defeat was on the shoulders of Austin Park, who tallied a shutout in Game 2 on Sunday. Brian Adams and Blake Bargar were the only Wild players to find the back of the net.

Finally tonight,prangsters at Chelan Fire and Rescue used April Fools day to announce that the department had acquired a new rapid response rig! Officials said in a Facebook post they had acquired a Harley Davidson motorcycle that would be used by EMT’s during the summer months. They said in the post, that the bike, called Rescue 7, would drastically minimize emergency response time. They said they would be able to weave through heavy traffic, utilize sidewalks when necessary, and make better time on those curvy roads. Rescue 7 was set to start operating on April 1st from the District’s main station and would only be used on sunny days by trained EMT’s and approved aviators.
