Runners flock to biggest ever Sage Rat Run events
Nearly 900 runners took part in this weekend's fourth annual Sage Rat Run, more than double the amount of people who took part in last year's event.
The racers each had a chance to take part in different running events that saw people using different parts of the trail that runs between Sunnyside, Grandview and Prosser. People taking part in the Sage Rat Run half marathon took off from Sunnyside at 8 a.m. on Saturday, running along the pathway through Grandview and ending up near the Prosser Chamber of Commerce.
Mid week farmers' market opens in Grandview, hopes to attract vendors, visitors
It had always seemed strange to Linda Clark that Grandview didn't have its own farmers' market. Being surrounded by agriculture, packing houses and farmers it didn't make sense that there was no place for growers to sell their produce directly to consumers without having to leave town.
So Linda Clark paired up with her daughter, Rene Martinez, and got to work organizing the Grandview Farmers' Market. The market held its first market day last week, in the lot behind the Bethany Presbyterian Church. The market will now be open every Wednesday throughout the growing season from 4 to 7 p.m., the lot is located at the corner of Birch and Third streets.
Relay for Life increases attendance nearly twofold
Rich Leenhouts Stadium was filled with laughter, warmth and memories this past weekend as nearly 500 people took part in this year's annual Relay for Life.
After a little confusion as to where and when the Relay would be held this year, the change was needed to accommodate a soccer state quarter-final game scheduled to take place at the same time as the event, the race went on without a hitch.
