Morning Memo/Monday: Starbucks juice … PETA protest… Sunken tug still sunk

Weather: Clouds today (It was certainly cold overnight. Did you have ice on your windshield this morning?) Rain or showers Tuesday through Thursday. Spring starts tomorrow, but you wouldn’t know it around here. The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: Could be slippery in spots because temps got down to 32 degrees overnight. The map and cams.

Got juice? Starbucks is getting into the juice biz. The coffee company has bought Evolution Fresh, a juice maker in California. The first Evolution Fresh store is in Bellevue.

 PETA members say they are going to hang a banner off a bridge over I-5 near Tacoma at noon today to protest the use of ferrets in research at Madigan Army Medical Center. It doesn’t appear there are plans for them to  take of their clothes. The PETA people, not the ferrets.

A 140-foot tug containing 50,000 to 60,000 gallons of diesel fuel has capsized and sunk at an Everett shipyard. The Coast Guard and Washington Department of Ecology are monitoring the site in case the fuel starts to leak. (Photo / U.S. Coast Guard)

A plan to charge higher tuition for engineering and chemistry majors over degrees for  history and English majors at the state colleges and universities is on hold for now. Whew.

Sunken tug: We’ll keep you posted on that tug and dry dock that sank in Everett yesterday. The fear is that the boat would lose a significant amount of fuel.
