Smoke bothering your eyes? It’s not from the reservation, but from the Antoine Creek fire near Chelan. David Nee, information officer for the Mt. Tolman Fire Center said Monday that everything on the reservation was under control. Another fire near Bridgeport apparently started during a controlled burn within an orchard, the sheriff in Douglas County said.
The regular Wednesday evening town council meeting at Coulee Dam has been cancelled due to a lack of town business. The next meeting will be at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 22.
