Thursday Memo: More bones behind dam … ‘Weed Island’ … Truly Golden

More bones found: A second set of human bones has been found as the result of lowering the water level behind the Wanapum Dam. The bones appear to be as old as the first set found March 4.

The Wenatchee World has the story.

Weed Island:  Nearly three-fourths of the voters on Vashon Island said they wanted to legalize marijuana, but some aren’t too keen on a proposal to bring a pot factory to the island. A pot factory, eh? Who’da thunk it?
