Over the past year or so, a hitch has developed in Rich Arlt’s retirement plans — a Wycked Hitch.

Arlt started his Wycked Hitch business a little more than a year ago to create a hitch to use with the Polaris Slingshot. A Slingshot is a three-wheeled, two-seat vehicle. Arlt, who lives in rural Ellensburg, works as a shop teacher in the Wahluke School District in Mattawa. He has 32 years of experience as a teacher.
