Friday Memo: Deputy prostitution investigation … Potty pranks … Peeps prizes

Times have been tough, but really? Anonymous sources say King County sheriff’s investigators are looking into an allegation that a veteran deputy, while under financial strain, aided his wife in working as a prostitute, including using the county’s computer system to check the backgrounds of her clients, the sources said. Two more deputies are under investigation for possibly alerting him to the criminal inquiry, the sources said.

Prince Albert in a can: In an age of cyber deception, the traditional phone prank somehow seems so quaint these days. A few Port Angeles teens may ask more questions next time they’re asked to bring pee to school. Hmmm, there seems to be a trend of urine in the news.

A chance to dry out: Looks like we get a break from the rain today, but don’t get too comfortable — there’s an 80 percent chance of rain on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service forecast. Easter Sunday is looking like it could be dry, but we’ll be wrapping our Peeps in plastic before hiding them outside.

Peeps 101 – Gretchen Crossley’s Grand Prize winning entry.

Speaking of Peeps: Some great artists work in oil. Others work with acrylics or watercolors. We know the real artists out there work with Peeps, and this year was no exception. We had more than 200 entries in the annual Peeps Contest. This year’s winners scored some great prizes from Bartell Drugs, and Gretchen Crossley, the adult grand prize winner, is donating her prize to the Oso mudslide victims. How cool is that?

Get smart: It’s Friday and we have another news quiz for you.
