Yakima’s Chalet Mall Starbucks Is Closing By Summer’s End

It's hard to imagine a Starbucks closing in Yakima, but looks like the one at the Chalet Mall on Summitview Avenue will be shuttering their doors by summer's end.

Suitcase Found In Storage Unit In Yakima Is Weird

The Yakima Herald-Republic recently reported that 86-year-old Paul McCulloh had found a mysterious suitcase in the storage unit he had rented for years. The suitcase wasn't his, but it contained a treasure trove of a family's memories -- photos, ashes of a pet dog, books and other mementos.
