    Tri-Citians were welcomed to inspect new facilities for the Washington State Patrol in this photo dated April 7, 1961. The building was located on Kennewick Avenue one block south of Highway 8. Chief greeter was Sgt. R.G. Liner, who commanded the 15-man detachment.

    Ninety-mile-an-hour winds wreaked havoc with this house on Badger Road in the Horse Heaven Hills, tearing off the entire upper floor. Mr. and Mrs. Dwight M. Talcott and their two children were asleep in the home when the gust struck on Jan. 19, 1961.

    Edward Lang of Kennewick claimed the cutter and binder shown above had the first power take-off used. He said the machine inspired the invention of combines. This picture was taken in 1914 on Lang's farm. Lang (left) and his partner John Dahlquist (right) built the machine applied for a patent but the inventors never received a cent for the outfit.

    These Rainier Street moppets, if they were expecting to see their street roar as in days of yore during thaws, were somewhat disappointed when this photo was published on Feb. 1963. In previous years, Rainier Street floodwaters, most of which originated in Zintel Canyon, have surged over the sidewalk where the children were standing. The water flow never exceeded by much the level shown here. City crews later replaced the gratings, reopened the street to traffic, and everyone went home. Kennewick, WA.
