Washington State University’s governing board has approved a $10 million expenditure to design a new classroom and office building and acquire property for future development of WSU-taught programs on the Everett Community College campus.
The money was appropriated by the Legislature. The building of 95,000 square feet will support programs focused on science, technology, engineering and math. The actual construction will require additional funds, but WSU won’t know how much until after the building is designed.
Everett officials and legislators asked the Legislature for the money; it wasn’t on WSU’s legislative operating or capital agenda, said WSU spokeswoman Kathy Barnard.
WSU has a growing presence on the Everett campus. Legislation signed in 2011 by Gov. Chris Gregoire gave WSU management and leadership over the University Center of North Puget Sound beginning in 2014. The center is located on the Everett campus and is currently managed by the community college. It offers classes from a consortium of eight schools.
The new building will be located on community-college property currently used as a parking lot. WSU will likely ask the Legislature in 2015 for money to build it.

A man was arrested in Snohomish County early this morning after a police chase with speeds topping 100 mph.
According to the State Patrol, troopers noticed a black Lexus sedan on Interstate 5 South, near Smokey Point, around 11:30. p.m. weaving through traffic. When they ran the license plate they realized the car had been stolen, said Trooper Mark Francis.
Troopers tried to stop the car but the vehicle took off, hitting speeds nearing 105 miles per hour, Francis said. The pursuit went south to the Everett Mall, onto some surface streets near the mall, then back north on the freeway. The Lexus got off the freeway in Marysville and drove through construction barricades blocking Highway 529, no one was hurt. Along the way troopers tried to stop the car with a PIT maneuver and spike strips, but were unsuccessful, Francis said.
Once back in Everett, the car stopped and the people inside took off. Francis said troopers brought in a police dog to track them down.
According to KOMO-TV at least one person has been arrested. Francis was unable to confirm any arrests, saying the case had been taken over by Everett police. A spokesman for the Everett Police Department could not be reached this morning.

A 20-year-old man was taken to Harborview Medical Center after being slashed in the face with a machete in a fight in Everett on Wednesday evening, police said.
The man is recovering from non-life-threatening injuries, Everett police spokesman Aaron Snell said.
The fight began between two brothers in the 3200 block of 18th Street, and when a 47-year-old bystander stepped in to break it up, the brothers turned on him, Snell said. The man was hit with a baseball bat, and in retaliation he pulled out a machete and swung it at the pair, slashing one of them in the face, Snell said.
The man with the machete has been arrested and is being questioned, Snell said, but it’s not clear whether charges will be filed.
The other brother ran off, and Everett police, who responded to the scene around 7:30 p.m., have not yet been able to find him, Snell said.
Snell said he didn’t know whether the brothers knew the other man, but he said all three are believed to live in the same neighborhood.

PORTLAND — A federal judge in Portland has delayed the trial of a couple accused in a Northwest crime spree that claimed four lives.
On Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Ancer Haggerty decided to postpone the trial of David “Joey” Pedersen and Holly Ann Grigsby two more months, from May 5 to July 7 next year.
The Oregonian reports Grigsby’s lawyers also asked for another delay. They want the judge to postpone until next year hearings that will determine whether Attorney General Eric Holder pursues the death penalty. The judge said he would decide on that request by Monday.
Pedersen and Grigsby are accused of a white-supremacist conspiracy in the 2011 killing of an Oregon man, a California man and Pedersen’s father and stepmother, Red and Dee Dee Pedersen of Everett.
