  • Wine and chocolate lovers will want to visit many local wineries next weekend during the annual red wine and chocolate weekend.

    Barb Glover, director of Wine Yakima Valley, says it is the first big event of the year for valley wine lovers and wineries, “It’s a big event. We do see a lot of visitors from the Westside primarily come over.”

    Admission to the wineries is free but some do charge a tasting fee. Glover says people can purchase a premier pass to avoid those fees.

    Parking is available in the student parking lot located at seventh avenue and spruce street.

  • Yakima Fire investigators say the fire that damaged Abbotts Printing on Jan. 28 was started by someone.

    Firefighters first put out a fire in a nearby dumpster in the 500 block of S. Second Ave. but hours later they were called back to find the fire burning in the walls of the structure.

    The fire caused thousands of dollars in damage. Investigators are trying to find the person responsible for the blaze.
