According to a report in the Yakima Herald Republic, the Bears have signed an exclusivity agreement with Clark County which will short circut Councilman Dave Eddler's attempt to convince Selah and Union Gap to team with Yakima in an effort to form a Public Facilities District to fund a new ball park.
