Spotter time is well spent time
No such thing as a useless phone call for Andrew Brown.

Brown, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service, said that the NWS has never received a phone call from a spotter that was a waste of time.

Spotters are the eyes and ears of the NWS in places where its radars sometimes don't reach. Brown offered a training session for spotters in Wenatchee two weeks ago, in which he reiterated the importance of the spotter's job and his or her calls when describing a weather event.

City awarded $150,000 grant to study wetlands
The city of Leavenworth has received notice it has been awarded a $150,000 grant from the Department of Ecology Centennial program. The city must match $50,000 to receive the grant.

City Development Director Nathan Pate said they have been waiting for this grant for some time.

"We knew there were some hints we are getting the money, but it is not official. We can celebrate and say that we've made one of the biggest efforts to get this particular task done through a point to where we finally have the money to get the work started," Pate said, at the July 8 city study session. "I do want to talk about getting the work started. This is going to take some time, because it will take energy, work, action, effort over months of study, data analysis, review."

The city will use the grant money to study the wetlands in the city's urban growth area, Ski Hill. Pate said the whole process could take 18 months to two years.

Wastewater treatment plant expansion could threaten Community Cupboard
Leavenworth City officials say future expansion of the wastewater treatment plant could force the Community Cupboard out of the 14th Street building it has occupied for more than 20 years.

City Administrator Joel Walinski said the logical place for the wastewater treatment plant to expand is up the hill, into the public works building, which also houses the Cupboard.
