Friday Memo: Hope Solo speaks … Special brownies … La Conner quake

National Weather Service / Forecast

Hope Solo is in town: Yesterday at least, at a news conference, talking about the beautiful game, the media’s scrutiny of her personal life and what’s next for her (playing in the new women’s soccer league for the Seattle Reign). When asked if there will be an added challenge living in Seattle where the outspoken Solo and her husband, Jerramy Stevens (who was arrested the day before their wedding), are so well known in the community, she did herself well with this: “We’re known in the community for doing good things,” she said. “We do many local events, many charities, so I think we should be just fine.”

Man found dead in Marysville: An 82-year-old man was found dead in a mobile home early this morning and the police are treating the case as a homicide. We’ll have more as the day progresses.

Love them brownies… One of the better lines from last night’s packed forum in Seattle on how the state will regulate the marijuana business came when state Liquor Control Board chairwoman Sharon Foster said a brownie point was in the offing to those who kept their comments under two minutes. Someone chimed in, “What kind of brownies?” Who remembers Alice B. Toklas?

La Conner quakin’ this morning: A 3.2 earthquake rocked the Skagit County town, and was felt around the area, including Anacortes, but was apparently just a little shakin’ going on.
