Monday Memo: Boeing machinists’ upcoming vote … Amazon-USPS deal … Sun today

Boeing Machinists contract vote Wednesday is expected to be close. That’s interesting, because the head of the union said last week that Boeing’s offer was ‘crap.’

Apples everywhere: It’s easy to forget for folks here on the Western side of the mountains just how huge the state’s apple business is. State’s apple crop crunches past $2 billion in 2012. That’s the first time the harvest crossed the $2 billion mark. What’s your favorite apple variety? Vote in our poll.

The power of Amazon: The U.S. Postal Service is struggling, Amazon leaves no stone unturned, and this is what you get: Amazon, Postal Service cut deal to deliver packages on Sundays. But only in L.A. and New York, for now.

Seahawks: Numbers you need to know: 33-10 over Atlanta, 9-1 for the season.

Lest we forget, today is Veterans Day: Postal Service honors local vet who wasn’t seeking to be hero

Weather: Could see some sun today and a high approaching 60 degrees. Nice. National Weather Service forecast
