ELLENSBURG — After more than 30 years at Central Washington University and more than 45 years of working with chimpanzees, Roger and Debbie Fouts retired from their positions at CWU this month.

But retirement for the Foutses is not as simple as turning in the key to the office. To a certain degree, it’s not retirement at all.

“Life with chimpanzees is not a job,” Roger said.

“We’ll be more like grandparents,” Debbie said. “We’ll see them from time to time, but I won’t be going every morning to greet them.”
