National Weather Service forecast

Skyway shooting: The shooting injured five people, one critically, near Renton early this morning. We’ll have more on this soon.

Profiting from disaster? One property owner got $85,000 from the state so a temporary road could be built across their land and around the Oso mudslide, allowing a link between Oso and Darrington. Other landowners got $500. Columnist Danny Westneat wonders, what’s up with that?

Dogs left in hot cars: Two Spokane Valley dog owners face possible criminal charges after leaving their dogs in cars in very high temperatures late last week. One of the dogs, a Chihuahua mix, was rescued from a car where the interior was measured at 113 degrees. Come on people.

For-profit college nightmare: After The Seattle Times ran a story about Everest College being investigated for questionable practices, a few former students contacted us to tell their experiences with the school. Only a few said they were able to find work in the field they had studied. And they were all left with  thousands of dollars in federal and private student loans and most are still paying them off.
