Saturday Memo: Hospital hackers . . . Pill take-back. . . Mariners at home

Hospital hackers: The Chelan County treasurer says hackers stole more than $1 million from an electronic bank account held by a Leavenworth hospital. Treasurer David Griffiths’ office noticed that three unauthorized transaction files had been logged Friday, April 19. The Wenatchee World reports that the files moved more than $1 million out of a public hospital district account to 96 different bank accounts, most in the Midwest and East.

Pill take-back: If you have old medications in your house that you would like to get rid of, today’s the day to do it. From 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., the Seattle Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration will  take potentially dangerous, expired, unused and unwanted prescription drugs at most Seattle Police Department precincts (the event has been canceled at the East Precinct).  The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked. In its five previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners took in over 2 million pounds – over a thousand tons – of pills.

Mariners at home: The Mariners (9-16) continue their struggles today at 6:10 p.m. at Safeco Field against the Los Angeles Angels, who won last night, 6-3.

Rain likely: Increasing chance of rain for the next couple days with temperatures in the mid to upper 50s.
