Morning Memo/Sunday: Jail numbers … Lucky the dog … and a sea otter

Weather: The details.  Ok, at least it’s not raining this morning.  That could happen tomorrow, but for the most part, think clouds with some sun peeking through this week.

Traffic: The map and cams

The Lewis County Jail: You never know what might pique your interest. The folks in Centralia apparently want to know what’s going on in their county jail. This from the police blotter of  The Chronicle:

Inmate population in the main facility as of early this morning: 175 inmates; 139 are men and 36 are women. None is a work-release inmate. Forty-eight are contract bed inmates from outside agencies. None is on electronic home monitoring and none is day-reporting. In the past 24 hours . . .  eight people were booked into jail and 28 were released.

Whew!

 

We like to say at the newspaper that you can't publish too many photos of sea otters because they are just so darn cute. The Seattle Aquarium is expecting a baby otter any time from Aniak, above. Captive births are rare and special. The pregnant otter was photographed at the Seattle Aquarium on Dec. 20, 2011. (Courtney Blethen Riffkin/The Seattle Times)

Lucky had a job and he did it. The Associated Press:

Airmen at Fairchild Air Force Base (outside Spokane) held a memorial service last week for Lucky the bomb-sniffing dog.

Lucky was deployed five times with the 92nd Security Forces Squadron to Afghanistan, Iraq and Kyrgyzstan and also supported the Secret Service.

The “tac dog,” a Belgian Malinois, died in September of cancer.
