Weather: Fog this morning will give way to a lovely day. Partly to mostly sunny, highs in the 70s. Here’s the forecast.

It’s good to be Ed Murray:  State Sen. Ed Murray was hired by the University of Washington in 2009 at a time the school was being hit with budget cuts and layoffs. His one-year post has been extended repeatedly since, giving him a steady second paycheck while the Legislature is not in session. Read political reporter Jim Brunner’s story.

It’s work to get a job: Business reporter Amy Martinez looks at the competition for good jobs in the post-recession market.  Read more about the strongest job sectors locally, the fast-growth job markets nationally, and personal stories about the hunt for a job.

What’s eating Mayor McGinn about Whole Foods:  Columnist Danny Westneat talks with Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn about the mayor’s objections to Whole Foods coming to West Seattle. McGinn tells Westneat he is “setting a new standard here” in saying that the city will take a look at wages and benefits when a company wants public property for its project.
