Wednesday Memo: Missing camper … Brace for cold weather … Many DUIs

National Weather Service / Forecast

Brace for some cold: Temperatures are expected to drop into the 30s this weekend and the highs are likely to be only in the 40s, says the National Weather Service. Hello November. Light snow is even forecast in Eastern Washington. Like we said, hello November!

Oh, and yesterday was election day. Today we have local election results by race and county-by-county results for key state races.

How many DUIs? A man wanted in our state on a DUI charge has pleaded guilty in a Virginia court to his 12th DUI. Unfortunately we couldn’t find details about the Washington state case, but you have to read this story just the same. Along with the Washington state charge and the Virginia conviction, he’s been busted for drunken driving six times in Alabama and three times Mississippi and is wanted in North Carolina. A fuller story can be found here.

Camper from Renton was last seen in Conconully in Okanogan County.

A camper from Renton is missing.  Christopher Campbell, 50, was last seen in Conconully in Okanogan County on Friday, three days after he was supposed to be home and back at work. KREM says sheriff’s deputies found Campbell’s camp at Fish Lake. Everything there still in place, but Campbell and his truck were missing. The Okanogan County Sheriff’s Office asks anyone with information to contact deputies at (509) 422-7232.

  3. Voters approve I-502 legalizing marijuana: Washington state voters made history Tuesday by legalizing the recreational use of marijuana.
  4. Gay-marriage measure passing in initial returns: In what will surely go down as a historic night for same-sex marriage, voters in Washington and two other states were approving measures to permit gays to marry — ending a 30-plus state losing streak at the ballot box.
  5. Inslee takes strong lead, but McKenna won’t concede: Buoyed by strong support in King County, Democrat Jay Inslee looked well-positioned to maintain his party’s three-decade winning streak for the governor’s office.
