Pranksters poured a prodigious amount of soap into the Tulalip Resort Casino entryway fountain overnight, causing bubbles to rise more than 10 feet and overflow onto a traffic roundabout.
This sort of thing happens about once a year, said Sam Askew, the hotel general manager. He presumes somebody was having some harmless pre-Halloween fun, and casino security is not trying to catch the soapers.
“It’s mostly cleaned up. We can appreciate a good practical joke as much as the next person,” he said late Saturday afternoon. On the other hand, it could create traffic hazards for drivers entering the roundabout, or even if they are distracted on nearby I-5, he said. KING TV said traffic slowed on the freeway, but the state Department of Transportation reported no crashes. Tribal police said there have been no arrests.

TULALIP – A Tulalip woman has been charged in federal court in Seattle with second-degree murder in the death of her 1-year-old daughter in a parked car on the reservation near Marysville.
Prosecutors say Christina D. Carlson left Chantel Craig and a 3-year-old daughter alone on Oct. 8 in the car in which they apparently were living. Investigators believe Carlson was using drugs there.
The Daily Herald reports in addition to murder, the 36-year-old Carlson is charged with mistreatment.
An autopsy showed Chantel suffered from severe malnutrition, weighing just 18 pounds. She was found covered in waste, and had maggots in her diaper and lice in her hair. Her older sister was in similar condition but survived.
State and tribal welfare workers had been trying to find Carlson for months.

TULALIP — State social workers closed a child neglect investigation on Oct. 8 just hours before two little girls were found in a car on the Tulalip Indian Reservation suffering from malnutrition and dehydration so severe that one of them died.
Records obtained by The Daily Herald show that the case was closed because social workers could not find the mother, Christina Carlson. The family had been living in the car on the reservation near Marysville.
The Snohomish County medical examiner’s office says year-and-a-half-old Chantel Craig died from parental neglect. Her 2-and-a-half-year-old sister was rushed to a hospital and survived.
Police said the girls were covered in waste and infested with fleas.
The 36-year-old mother has pleaded not guilty to criminal charges in Tulalip Tribal Court.

There is not points to locate on the map
A bomb threat last night forced the evacuation of the Walmart store on the Tulalip Tribes reservation.
Snohomish County sheriff’s deputies responded to the store at 8924 Quilceda Blvd. just after 8 p.m. after someone called the store and said a bomb had been placed in the building. The State Patrol and Tulalip police also responded.
No explosive devices were found in the store.

A handicapped Tulalip woman was robbed at gunpoint last night in front of her two young children, according to Marysville police.
The 25-year-old woman was putting her wheelchair into her vehicle around 8:30 p.m. when a man approached, pointed a handgun at her and demanded money, police said. She told the man she had no money, but he grabbed her purse from the front seat of the vehicle and ran. He was joined by a second man as he fled.
The woman was knocked to the ground, but was not injured. Police said her two young children were in the vehicle during the robbery.
The armed man concealed his face below his nose. He was described as about 5-feet-7 and 150 pounds. He had acne and appeared to have a shaved head, police said. He was wearing blue jeans and a black hooded sweatshirt. The second man also wore blue jeans and a black sweatshirt.
