Empty gas tank alters birth plan


A Colfax ambulance crew was dispatched at 12:07 p.m. July 9 by a report of a pending birth of a baby on the Airport Road at mile one west of Colfax.

The mother was transported to Whitman Hospital and Medical Center, and the father taken to a station in Colfax to purchase fuel.
