Uh, oh, snow! And a lot of it: OK, it’s going to be falling in the Cascades and Olympics, but we’re talking about two to three feet of it. So much so that a winter storm warning has been issued. Isn’t it almost spring? Skiing anyone? Bosses beware of an uptick in absenteeism for the next few days. Down here, we looking at rain and strong winds this afternoon through Wednesday night, according to the National Weather Service.

Even walking home from school isn’t safe: A 14-year-old girl was hit in the side by a pellet or a bullet as she was walking with friends in Burien in broad daylight yesterday. She is going to be OK, but what’s that all about?
Speaking of guns, there’s a church in Yakima offering to train you in how to use one to protect yourself and your home. The pastor of the Open Bible Christian Center apparently came up with the idea after talking with women who said they lacked confidence handling the guns their hubbies had bought them.
We’ve all probably had one, a vacation that truly sucked: One that you tell your friends about (maybe one too many times) and warn them it’s a place you’ll never, ever want to see again. Well now you get a chance to vent. The Times is doing a survey on vacations from hell: Tell us about your worst vacation. Some of the best stories might be printed in the paper.

The family of a girl who was wounded when a gun went off in her third-grade classroom has added the Bremerton School District to its lawsuit.
Lawyers for Amina Kocer-Bowman’s family say the district should have known the classmate who brought the gun to class in a backpack was dangerous and that school officials failed to take reasonable safety precautions.
A spokeswoman for the district, Pattye Heuer, says it has no comment on Tuesday’s development.
Lawyers announced their intent to sue the district in August when they filed a $10 million claim against the district. They also are suing the boy’s relatives for allowing him access to handguns.
Amina spent six weeks in a hospital and endured numerous surgeries for internal injuries caused by the shooting.

The third-grade girl who nearly died when a classmate accidentally discharged a gun has turned 9 years old.
Amina Kocer-Bowman’s birthday is Monday. Last week she was moved out of the intensive care unit at Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center. She is now listed in satisfactory condition.
The child has undergone multiple surgeries since she was wounded in a Bremerton classroom on Feb. 22. The girl’s surgeon has said the bullet narrowly missed the child’s vital organs but tore her liver and a major vein.
The mother of the 9-year-old boy who took the gun to school and her boyfriend have both pleaded not guilty to third-degree assault and unlawful possession of a firearm in the case.

A car went into the water near Gorst in Kitsap County this morning. Initial reports said one person was dead, but we’re checking into that. More to come.
Well, all we can say is we’ve had enough bad news and shootings this week: 8-year-old girl shot by 9-year-old classmate; trooper shot dead by felon; federal marshals kill fugitive in shootout. Let’s hope Friday will bring some good news.
The third-grade teacher some are crediting with saving the life of 8-year-old Amina Bowman spoke with KING5 yesterday and says not only is she worried about Amina’s health, but she’s concerned about the welfare of the 9-year-old boy who was carrying the gun that went off and wounded her.
And on a lighter note, have we run a photo before of former Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels with a full beard? (He’s now officially running for secretary of state.)

A third-grader was wounded in a shooting this afternoon at Armin Jahr Elementary School in Bremerton, district spokeswoman Patty Glaser said. The victim is 8, according to Bremerton police.
The school, a K-5 with about 400 students, was scheduled to let out at 1:30 p.m. today. The shooting happened shortly before the end of the school day. The school was immediately placed under lockdown, Glaser said. The students have since been released and were being sent home on buses.
Glaser didn’t know how badly the student was hurt, but she was reportedly shot in the stomach.
KING-TV reported the shooter is also in third grade.
A firearm was found in a classroom and one student was detained, The Kitsap Sun reported.
Police have not confirmed the girl’s condition, but an Airlift Northwest helicopter landed at nearby Harrison Hospital and airlifted the girl to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
Children could be seen escorted out of the building about a half-hour after the shooting.
The incident isn’t the first this school year in which a gun was brought to a Kitsap County school. The Kitsap County sheriff’s office arrested two 10-year-old boys for bringing a loaded handgun to Silverdale Elementary School .
Deputy Scott Wilson says one boy asked the other to bring a family gun to the school because the first student wanted to assault members of his own family.
It has been almost exactly two years since the last shooting in a Washington public school, said Nathan Olson, a spokesman for the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction. In that case at Tacoma’s Birney Elementary, a man with no connection to the school shot and killed a special-education teacher before killing himself.
Olson declined to comment on this incident.
