Morning Memo/Friday: Shot and burned … Bezos backs gay marriage … Trash strike

Weather: If you liked yesterday, we hope you enjoyed it, because today won’t be anything like that. Close to 80 yesterday, but a high of just 70 today. The sun might show itself sometime this afternoon, but there have been reports of drizzle at some point before that. Yikes. The saving grace is that we’re in for clear skies for the next week, and that sounds like summer to us. The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Jeff Bezos

Amazon chief Jeff Bezos and his wife have given $2.5 million to the effort to defend Washington’s same-sex marriage law.

Still no trash pickup: Sanitation haulers remain on strike. And the Teamsters aren’t blowing smoke when they claim that recycling work is one of the most dangerous jobs in the country. How long will it be before things start to get stinky?

Man busted in child rape cold case: DNA has put a Winlock man in jail for investigation of rape of an 8-year-old girl in a park in Mossyrock in 2007. The Chronicle in Centralia.
