National Weather Service forecast

National Weather Service forecast

Missing kayaker: Searchers with the Whitman County Sheriff’s Office are looking for a kayaker missing on the Palouse River. KHQ reports that authorities were called when the woman failed to return from a kayaking trip on the river near the town of Palouse.

Expensive jaywalking stop for the city of Seattle: The city has to pony up $15,000 to a felon because an officer violated the guy’s rights during a jaywalking arrest four years ago. And, judges were rather critical of the cop’s obscenity-laced conduct. By the way, the officer was the one who killed Lakewood cop-killer Maurice Clemmons.

Put your phone away, pleeeease: Based on our unscientific poll yesterday, most people by far don’t want the guy in the seat next to them yakking on a cellphone in flight. The FCC says it might allow passengers to use cellphones on planes.

Charter-schools challenge: Oral arguments over the constitutionality of the state’s new charter-school law are expected to be heard today by a King County Superior Court judge. Those challenging the law say, among other things, that it diverts public school money to private organizations that are not subject to voter control.

Cold here? Naw, it dropped to 11 degrees in Yakima yesterday.  We’ll continue to have sun today through Sunday with highs in the upper 40s and low 50s. National Weather Service forecast
