Morning Memo/Tuesday: Not about Amanda Knox … Tax day … Dog rescue

Weather: What’s this, a little bit of sunshine today? But it will be mostly cloudy, cloudy, cloudy, the rest of the week with a middling chance of rain. Temps in the mid to upper 50s. OK, it’s April in Seattle …  The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Tax day, everyone: It’s the last day to file your federal taxes. Enough said.

The Amelia Earhart mystery: The search for air adventurer Amelia Earhart continues to this day. We have a story by staff reporter Jack Broom about a Woodinville firm that is joining one of the latest efforts to discover what happened to the daring pilot:  Earhart search goes high-tech with the help of area man

Dog rescued: We just can’t help but share stories about dogs being rescued, and here’s one about a pooch being rescued from a cliff on Mount Si and being reunited with its owner.

Meredith Kercher

“It’s all about Knox …” says the father of slain British exchange student Meredith Kercher writes in his book about his daughter, who was killed in her room in Perugia, Italy, in 2007. In a story broadcast by CBS News, Kercher’s father, John, writes, “Meredith … was a beautiful, intelligent and caring girl whom everyone loved, and her story deserves to be told.” Knox is Amanda Knox of West Seattle, who was convicted of the slaying, but the conviction was later overturned. The media has focused much of its attention on Knox, who spent four years in an Italian prison until being released late last year.
