QB Luke Falk ready for final chapter at Washington State

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 06:08:31 UT

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Back when Luke Falk was a freshman walk-on at Washington State, struggling to strike a balance between being a first-year college football player, school and trying to have a few dollars of his own, he picked up a part-time job working for a catering company. One of his assignments was working a high-end booster event where Falk was asked to serve, of all people, Washington State athletic director Bill Moos. "Here I am serving our athletic director. He didn't know me at the time, probably. But, he's heard the story now," Falk recalled. "He was one of the only guys that said, 'Thank you, and please, and thank you.'" Years later, everyone associated with Washington State knows Falk. He's no longer overlooked.

(AP) — Authorities say a brush fire south of Olympia in the Grand Mound area burned a half a dozen structures and a business before the fire was contained and evacuation orders were lifted Tuesday night.

Sims, 3 others combine on shutout, Braves beats Mariners 4-0

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 05:09:40 UT

ATLANTA (AP) — Ozzie Albies got caught in a rundown, and it worked out just fine for the Atlanta Braves. Then two of his teammates also found themselves trapped between bases, a daffy play that overshadowed a dominating start by Lucas Sims. The rookie right-hander combined with three relievers on a five-hitter Tuesday night to lead the Braves to a 4-0 win over the Seattle Mariners, whose shoddy defense in the interleague series was epitomized by a slapstick sequence that closed out the sixth. With two outs and two runners aboard, Ender Inciarte grounded sharply up the middle. Shortstop Jean Segura made a stop on his knees, didn't have a play at first but spotted Albies rounding third.

Jury refuses to convict 4 in Nevada ranch standoff retrial

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 01:29:52 UT

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A federal jury in Las Vegas refused Tuesday to convict four defendants who were retried on accusations that they threatened and assaulted federal agents by wielding assault weapons in a 2014 confrontation to stop a cattle roundup near the Nevada ranch of states' rights figure Cliven Bundy. In a stunning setback to federal prosecutors planning to try the Bundy family patriarch and two adult sons later this year, the jury acquitted Ricky Lovelien and Steven Stewart of all 10 charges, and delivered not-guilty findings on most charges against Scott Drexler and Eric Parker. More than 30 defendants' supporters in the courtroom broke into applause after Chief U.S.

Oregon's governor, state police chief stand up for marijuana

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 00:38:57 UT

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Oregon's governor and the head of the state police defended the state's legal marijuana industry in letters to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has been hinting at a crackdown on states such as Oregon that have legalized pot in defiance of federal law. Gov. Kate Brown noted Tuesday in her letter that Sessions' earlier letter to her referenced a draft report from the Oregon State Police that concluded a lot of Oregon's marijuana was being diverted to other states. Brown and Oregon State Police Superintendent Travis Hampton said that draft report was invalid and had incorrect data and conclusions.

Feds review annual whaling quotas for Alaska Native hunters

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 22:43:23 UT

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Federal officials are reviewing annual catch limits for 11 Alaska Native communities whose subsistence hunters are authorized to harvest bowhead whales. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says the public has until Sept. 14 to comment on quotas for a six-year period to begin in 2019. The International Whaling Commission, which has final say on quotas for subsistence harvesting of large whales, meets next in Brazil in 2018. The environmental impact statement being prepared will help NOAA decide how Alaska's share of catch limits is allocated, according to NOAA spokesman Chris Rogers. The Alaska Eskimo Whaling Commission decides how the quotas are actually split among the whaling communities.

Burien hospital to pay $45,000 over care of deaf patient

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 22:22:35 UT

SEATTLE (AP) — Highline Medical Center in Burien has agreed to pay $45,000 to settle allegations that it violated the Americans with Disabilities Act by failing to provide sign-language interpreters for a deaf patient. The U.S. Attorney's Office in Seattle said Tuesday the case involved a deaf patient who underwent spinal surgery in 2014. The hospital failed to provide sign-language interpreters at his discharge and other critical moments of his care. Officials say the man's wife is also deaf, and she could not effectively communicate with medical staff about the extent of spinal damage discovered during his surgery, his pain or information his post-operative care.

Swastikas and bomb threat prompt WSU dorm evacuation

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 22:02:50 UT

PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Dozens of students were evacuated from a dormitory at Washington State University after students reported vandals had scratched several swastikas and a vague bomb threat onto the walls. The Spokesman-Review says the graffiti was reported about 10 p.m. Monday. Police inspected Simson Hall and found no evidence of explosives, and the students were allowed back in shortly after 2 a.m. WSU assistant police chief Steve Hansen says the Nazi symbols were etched into walls in stairwells and common areas on multiple floors of the building. He said the markings were thin and hardly visible and appeared to have been created with a sharp knife. He says the bomb threat was simply the word "bomb" above a time: 1 a.m.

Arctic researchers to study wind effects on marine life

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 21:39:48 UT

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A federal research vessel will launch on a cruise this week to study how Beaufort Sea wind affects plant and animal life in a changing Arctic Ocean. The Sikuliaq (see-KOO'-lee-ak), owned by the National Science Foundation and operated by the University of Alaska Fairbanks, will depart Friday from Nome for the trip through the Bering Strait to waters on and off the continental shelf in the Beaufort. Climate warming in recent decades has resulted in far less summer seasonal ice in the Beaufort, which stretches from the northeast coast of Alaska across Canada. East winds that formerly blew over sea ice now blow over open water, said Steve Okkonen, a physical oceanographer at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

Oregon officials say no mayhem or big eclipse problems

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 20:59:15 UT

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — No raging forest fires trapped people. The telecommunications system didn't crash. There were only a few traffic jams. Tourists spent money in restaurants and brewpubs, and found gas to get around. Even the weather cooperated, with skies mostly clear across Oregon for the eclipse. Emergency responders had prepared for the worst, using practice runs for a massive earthquake as a template. Oregon National Guard troops and their Blackhawk helicopters were ready to help in evacuations. But Oregonians and an uncounted number of visitors from the U.S. and abroad came together and experienced awe as the moon eclipsed the sun, putting part of the state in total eclipse, with stars coming out and temperatures plunging.

Bradley says he paid $183.24 in registration fees for him and his wife. The complaint says they believed if they paid the fee, they could attend the Sept. 17 marathon.

Sparks replace banged-up Lynx atop the AP WNBA power poll

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 19:44:39 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — The Minnesota Lynx are banged up and struggling. Lindsay Whalen has been sidelined for a few weeks with a broken bone in her hand and Rebekkah Brunson is out with a sprained ankle. Without the two starters, the Lynx have dropped three of their last four games and fell out of first in The Associated Press WNBA power poll for the first time since week 2. Los Angeles took over the top spot Tuesday. Whalen said she's recovering well, but isn't sure when she'll be back. Coach Cheryl Reeve was hopefully to have Brunson back soon. "No one is feeling sorry for us," Reeve said. While the Lynx have hit a rough patch, Seattle hasn't lost a game since changing coaches.

Sam Darnold headlines loaded 'Conference of QBs'

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 19:13:29 UT

The Pac-12 has been called the Conference of Quarterbacks and it looks like it will really live up to that this season. USC's Sam Darnold leads a strong group of returning QBs, including Jake Browning of Washington and Josh Rosen of UCLA. But there are some newcomers, too. Oregon State has community college transfer Jake Luton, while Utah's Tyler Huntley wrested away the starter's job from a senior incumbent after a glimpse of the field last season. A primer for the quarterbacks that will lead the league's teams this season: SAM DARNOLD, USC: When fans last saw Darnold, he was throwing for 453 yards and five touchdowns in USC's comeback win over Penn State in the Rose Bowl.

Deliberations resume for 4th full day in Bundy standoff case

Tue, 22 Aug 2017 15:51:01 UT

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Jury deliberations have resumed in Las Vegas for a fourth full day in the retrial of four men accused of wielding assault weapons to force federal agents to abandon a 2014 cattle roundup near anti-government figure Cliven Bundy's ranch in Nevada. Jurors are back at work Tuesday considering 10 charges including conspiracy, weapon possession and assault on a federal agent against Idaho defendants Scott Drexler, Eric Parker and Steven Stewart, and Ricky Lovelien of Montana and Oklahoma. Defense attorneys complain that their clients were prevented from telling the jury why they went to the Bundy ranch.
