Morning Memo/Wednesday: Supe finalist No. 2 … gobbled garbage

Weather: The next four days: Rain, rain, light rain, light rain. Well, last weekend was sure nice. The temperature could reach 63 today, but temps are expected to drop into the upper 50s for the next several days. That’s about normal for this time of year. We still want what we had last weekend … The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Girl hit by police car: A 13-year-old girl was hit by a police car in Kent last night, but police say it was her fault and she wasn’t seriously hurt.

Steven Enoch, one of three candidates for superintendent for Seattle Schools, holds a news conference today. Enoch  most recently headed up the 30,000-student San Ramon Valley Unified School District in the San Francisco Bay Area. Read our profile of the candidate by Seattle Times reporter Katherine Long online today. We’ll be at the news conference, and we’ll post a story on this blog soon thereafter.

A 51-year-old Longview woman was busted yesterday for reportedly stabbing another woman in the back in a disagreement over who owned a washer and dryer. Laurie Welch was arrested for investigation of second-degree assault in the stabbing of Linda Mahape. Mahape was treated at a hospital and released. The Daily News in Longview has the story.

A whale’s diet? People are talking about the fact that a golf ball, among other things, was in the stomach of the gray whale found dead off Camano Island the other day. Also in there: shrimp, woody debris, algae, pieces of rope and plastic.
