Vallance photo King Blossom Orchard mechanic Marion Lltchfleld posts keep out signs around what's left of his mechanic shop on North Star Road north of Brewster. Late night fire destroys mechanics shop A late night fire destroyed a maintenance shop three miles north of Brewster Saturday, February 7 By the time fire fighters from Okanogan Fire District #5 arrived around 11:00 p.m., the 60 foot by 30 foot structure was fully engulfed in flames. Fire fighters from Brewster, Pateros and Malott fought the fire and surrounding hazards for nearly two hours. Fire crews were able to maintain the fire to the mechanic shop which was flanked by three 4,000 gallon gas tanks on one side and an attached spray material shed on the other. The 2,000 square foot building which housed an office, bathroom, shower room and the mechanic shop belong to King Blossom Orchards at 40 North Star Road. Mike Boyd, manager of King Blossom Orchards in Brewster, estimatedthe loss at $40,000. No orchard equipment such as tractors or vehicles were inside the shop at the time of the fire. Boyd said the loss, although it destroyed the mechanic shop, could have been worse. "It's the best, worse case scenario," Boyd said. King Blossom Orchard does have insurance and do have plans to rebuild according to Boyd. Twenty fire fighters and six fire trucks from Brewster, Pateros and Malott fought the blaze. Fire District Ambulance also responded for stand-by. The cause of the fire is still under investigation accord,.'ng to fire officials.

Quad City Herald j Mitctl, ell leaves ral eros bank Peggy Mitchell began her career in banking in 1964, as a teller at the new bank in Pateros. In the years since the bank has gone through many ownership changes, from a locally owned company to a branch of a regional bank and back to a local company. Through it all, Peggy Mitchell has been behind the counter, as a teller or manager. That was true until Monday, when Mitchell left the bank after exactly 33 1/3 years. She took a job as assistant branch manager of the Chelan branch of lnterWest Bank. She will be the supervisor in charge of nine employees, she said. Some of her customers couldn't imagine it. "You can't-- run Pateros without Peggy," said Chick Pryor, as she wished Mitchell goodbye and good luck. 'Mitchell said she was going to miss her customers; "that was the hardest part--the customers. I've got family here." But while it was hard to leave, the new job hasadvantages too. Mitchell said the job at InterWest will give her more chances to use her experience and offer more opportunity for professional advancement, as well as offering her more challenges. (Besides, her former colleague Peter Rodionoff has taken a job at the same InterWest branch, and the workers there need help in keeping him in line, she said.) She said banking has changed a lot since she started as a teller "right out of high school." In 1964 everything was done by hand. All the checks and withdrawals and deposits and transactions were posted with pen and paper, the way banks had been operated since they were invented. Since then the technological revolution has brought many changes; now some people do all their banking by computer and don't need to go into the office at all. Her fellow employees at North Cascades National Bank gave her flowers and acake Thursday afternoon, as customers like Pryor dropped by to wish her good luck.
