Wed, 18 Oct 2017 20:17:14 UT

SEATTLE (AP) — A California man has pleaded guilty to groping and kissing a 16-year-old girl on an Alaska Airlines flight last year.

Salas of Redondo Beach, California, was on a flight on June 22, 2016 from Portland, Oregon to Anchorage, Alaska.

She pushed him away again and tried to put his hand into her pants.



3 key players in drug distribution ring found guilty

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 19:35:21 UT

SEATTLE (AP) — Three key players in a drug distribution ring that operated across Washington state were found guilty after a 10-day jury trial. U.S. Attorney Annette Hayes says 14 others involved in the case pleaded guilty after their arrest in November 2016. The drug ring distributed heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine in King, Snohomish, Skagit and Whatcom counties. They had drug connections in Nevada and California.

The investigation was named "Operation Car Wash" as some of the conspirators conducted deals at a Mount Vernon car wash.

Washington unemployment rate holds steady at 4.6 percent

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 18:24:11 UT

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — Washington state's unemployment rate last month was unchanged from the previous month's rate of 4.6 percent. According to the latest numbers released Wednesday by the Employment Security Department, the state added 13,800 jobs in September after the private sector gained 6,000 jobs during the month and the public sector gained 7,800 jobs. Job gains and losses are estimates based on a survey by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The unemployment rate counts the percentage of people who are unemployed and actively looking for work, and doesn't include those who have stopped looking for work. The national unemployment rate was 4.2 percent last month.

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 17:18:32 UT

SEATTLE (AP) — A Seattle man says he chased down a suspected thief who ripped the bat off of the statue of baseball player Ken Griffey Jr. KING-TV reports the suspect was apprehended on Tuesday after Kelsey Klevenberg followed the man who ditched the bat in a garbage can during the chase. Klevenberg says he was across the street from Safeco Field when he saw the man bending the bat back and forth until it snapped off of the statue of the Seattle Mariners star. Klevenberg says he chased the man because "if there's one thing you don't do in Seattle, Washington, it's mess with the statue of Ken Griffey, Jr." ___ Information from: KING-TV, http://www.king5.com/



Washington Senate race most expensive in state history

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 17:13:21 UT

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — A legislative race that will determine control of the Washington Senate is the most expensive in state history. Officials with the Public Disclosure Commission said Wednesday that combined spending by the campaigns Democrat Manka Dhingra and Republican Jinyoung Lee Englund exceeds $2.4 million, surpassing the previous record of nearly $1.5 million. That 2014 race — between the late Republican Sen. Andy Hill and Democratic opponent Matt Isenhower — was in the same district. This year's race is to serve the last year of a four-year term left vacant by Hill's death. Republicans, with the help of a Democrat who caucuses with them, currently control the Senate by a single seat.

Women who own businesses find bank loans harder to get

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 15:07:35 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — Getting a bank loan is still a struggle for many women who own businesses. Kirsten Curry has had three rejections in the past six months and is waiting to hear from a fourth bank. Curry, owner of Seattle-based Leading Retirement Solutions, has applied to national banks, a regional bank and a credit union. The problem is that her 8-year-old retirement advisory firm lost money last year as it invested in technology to help it expand. Although revenue has consistently risen and her company has no debt, her expenses last year were a red flag. "Though we know we're going to see growth, it's not necessarily guaranteed," Curry says.

The I-90 bridge project is one of 100 products and technologies across 11 categories selected for the Best of What's New issue that was published Tuesday.




Prosecutor clears deputy in shooting of West Richland man

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 13:42:52 UT

KENNEWICK, Wash. (AP) — A deputy has been cleared in the shooting and killing of a southern Washington man who authorities say refused to drop a shotgun and leveled it at officers. The Tri-City Herald reports that Benton County Prosecutor Andy Miller says deputy John Clary was justified in the shooting of 46-year-old Douglas West in July. Authorities say the wife of West barricaded herself in a bedroom of their residence and called police. When Clary arrived at the West Richland residence, West walked out wielding a shotgun. Police commanded him to drop the gun. Miller says Clary made the correct decision to shoot, and "it is impossible to know what Mr.

Yakima voters to have say on county's recreational pot ban

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 05:51:06 UT

YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) — Voters in the unincorporated areas of Yakima County will vote in November on whether they think the county's ban on recreational marijuana businesses should be lifted. The Herald-Republic reports that county commissioners say the ban was put into place when Yakima County voters rejected the initiative that legalized recreational marijuana in 2012 by 57.8 percent. The November vote will be an advisory vote, meaning commissioners still have final say on the ban despite the outcome of the election. There are currently more than 20 marijuana businesses in unincorporated areas of the county, despite the ban.
