Governor to come east

OLYMPIA -- Gov. Chris Gregoire will make a two-day swing through Central and Eastern Washington this week, with visits scheduled to highlight irrigation projects, flood damage victims and wine research.

Gregoire is scheduled to stop in Yakima Thursday morning to discuss an irrigation project on the Yakima River, and in Sunnyside to tour crop damage sustained by local farmers from recent storms. In the afternoon she has a tour of the Washington State University Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center in Prosser and a meeting with the Potato Commission in Richland.

Friday she'll attend a groundbreaking for a pump station near Benton City, visit the Wine and Culinary Center in Prosser and stop at another groundbreaking ceremony for a new shipping warehouse, in Burbank.
