  1. Was Oso mudslide nature's mystery or man's mistake?Read the original story w/Photo

    Mar 15, 2015 | HeraldNet

    Nearly a year after the worst disaster in modern Snohomish County history, a legal battle continues to take shape over whether somebody should be held responsible. Was the March 22, 2014, mudslide near Oso a tragic display of natural forces reshaping the land, or a calamity caused by human hands? Did local governments have a duty to discourage people from making their homes along the banks of the North Fork Stillaguamish River beneath a slide-prone hill, a place where 43 people later lost their lives? So far, four lawsuits have been brought in King County Superior Court by those who lost family and homes.

  9. Halftime for the Legislature's 2015 Session: What bills are still alive, deadRead the original story w/Photo

    Mar 13, 2015 | The Columbian

    Halfway through the Washington Legislature's 105-day session, only three bills have made it to Gov. Jay Inslee's desk to be signed into law, with the state's Republican-controlled Senate and Democratic-led House each passing a series of bills seemingly at odds with the policy goals of the opposite chamber. The bills Inslee has signed shot through the Senate and House with little controversy: a supplemental budget to cover expenses related to wildfires, the Oso mudslide, and lost lawsuits over home health workers and mental health patients; permission to give the state Medal of Valor to several communities simultaneously for their work helping Oso; and a new 14-day deadline to conduct mental health assessments in jails and hospitals.
