Morning Memo/Wednesday: Cop-couple fracas … Anacortes water … Yakima tragedy

Weather: Did we say it was feeling like fall? Well it is, but a very nice fall. Temperatures in the upper 60s and lower 70s and mostly clear skies. It might even reach the low 70s tomorrow. Typically, we’d have had more than an inch of rain so far this month, according to National Weather Service numbers. No rain in sight through next Tuesday. Gotta like that. The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Police officer comes to the aid of his wife: In this case, though, the wife is an officer, too, and she was trying to arrest a combative man up on Capitol Hill. The husband, who was on duty elsewhere in the city, also got into it with the guy being arrested. When the dust cleared, the wife, who had been injured, was treated at the hospital. The arrestee was, too. And the husband was placed on administrative leave while the department looks into the whole incident.

Five million gallons a day, really? Now here’s something to get your arms around. A company is looking for approval from the city of Anacortes and Skagit County to build a water bottling plant up there, and if it got the go-ahead, it would use up to 5 million gallons of water a day. Is that a lot?

He’d been out of jail only an hour …  A gang member arrested in the shooting death of a 15-year-old boy in the Lower Yakima Valley last week had been out of jail just an hour before the shooting, the Yakima Herald-Republic is reporting this morning. The boy was shot in the head one week ago. It just makes you shake your head …

Those Mariners: With all the talk about the controversial win by the Seahawks Monday night, it’s easy to forget that the Ms are still playing. But maybe that’s OK.  Twenty of them were fanned in the 5-4 loss to the Angels yesterday. Ouch.
