Wednesday Memo: Sacramento’s still trying … Rain returns … Inslee, Feds talk pot

 

Rain, rain, rain Rain, rain, and more rain  this week: Welcome the rain back. Our 12-day dry stretch is expected to end this afternoon. A system that has already crossed the Washington coast should raise temperatures and rinse away the stagnant air. Rain – at least a chance of it —  is forecast each day into next week.

Does Sacramento still have a chance? Mayor Kevin Johnson, a former NBA player, is pulling out all the stops. Yesterday, he held a sort of pep rally to drum up support for the city to keep the Kings, and he’s been gathering up investors to make a counteroffer to that of Chris Hansen’s group.

Man shot through walls in SeaTac:  A young man is expected to recover from a gunshot wound to his back. He had been playing video games when three gunshots traveled through several walls in a SeaTac fourplex and one of the bullets struck him.

Griffey honored by M’s: Ken Griffey Jr. will be inducted into the Mariners’ Hall of Fame on Aug. 10 at Safeco Field. Griffey is No. 6 on baseball’s career home-run list with 630. He hit 417 dingers as a Mariner.

Feds, Inslee talk pot in D.C.: Gov. Jay Inslee and state Attorney General Bob Ferguson met with U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder about I-502, which requires Washington to create rules for a legal marijuana system. Inslee said the meeting was “very satisfying” and “nothing I heard should dissuade us” from implementing legal pot.
