Friday Memo: Scratching Nugent … A bump in the night … More money for Beast Mode?

Just say ‘No’ to  Nugent: The Puyallup Tribe is the second Northwest tribe to cancel concerts by Ted Nugent. The news came three days after Idaho’s Coeur d’Alene Tribe canceled Nugent’s Aug. 4 show over his “racist and hate-filled remarks.” Shawn Vestal, a columnist for The Spokesman-Review, writes about the Nugent controversy.

Shake, rattle and roll: OK, more like a bump in the night. The U.S. Geological Survey reports a 2.8-magnitude earthquake near Duvall (northeast of Seattle) this morning just after 3 a.m. Weak or light shaking was felt, according to the USGS website. No damage.

Speaking of making the earth move, Beast Mode wants more money. Marshawn Lynch, who threatened to hold out during minicamp in June but showed up anyway, is expected to be absent when the Seahawks begin training camp Friday, according to NFL commentator and Beast Friend Michael Robinson. In the middle of a 4-year contract, one of Lynch’s goals is to get more money up front in case he is released after this season, Robinson says. “I really think he just wants his position in the organization and how they view him, he just wants that recalibrated a little bit.”

Tired of the rain yet? Even if you’re not, it looks like we’re making a return to summer and leaving July-uary behind. Highs in the mid-70s by this afternoon and into the low 80s by Sunday, according to the National Weather Service forecast.
