Saturday Memo: Smokin’? … Anti-war vets … Charter schools vote

National Weather Service / Forecast

Got pot? We’re wondering if any of the more than 220 people whose pending misdemeanor marijuana-possession cases being dismissed in King County will be celebrating by having a toke or two? Just asking…

What were they thinking? Three young people were trying to walk off with some musical instruments, of all things, after breaking into Eckstein Middle School in Seattle early today, but were caught by Seattle police. They were arrested, sort of, and handed over to their probably not so happy parents. Musical instruments?

Freezing temps… If you didn’t have to scrape ice off your car windows this morning, you were among the lucky ones. The forecast.

Anti-war vets can march today: It might be interesting to see how the anti-war group will fare today at the Auburn veterans parade now that a judge has ruled that they can’t be excluded from the popular event.

Charter schools initiative yet to be decided. The statewide initiative that would OK charter schools is still too close to call. It was down a bit from Thursday, but still leading 50.8 to 49.2 percent. More ballot results are expected today.
