King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg has asked Sheriff Patti Cole-Tindall to investigate the deletion of text messages in 2020 from the phones of then-Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and other city leaders. Satterberg said Thursday in an emailed statement that it wasn’t clear to him that anyone was going to start this investigation without prompting, The Seattle Times reported. "Just like the public’s right to an open courtroom, people have a right to know what is in public documents – including text messages," he wrote. Satterberg’s office requested the investigation July 28, spokesperson Casey McNerthney said. Cole-Tindall spokesperson Cynthia Sampson said the agency is in the early stages of reviewing the matter.

In this recurring series, we find those people who’ve done all the work for you and have them walk us through a particularly wonderful, especially well-thought-out vacation they took that you can actually steal.

Community Corner Orphans of the Storm animal shelter finds record number of dogs and cats await adoption due to pandemic Alan Blitz, Volunteer Media Writer , Community Contributor Posted Reply The animal welfare industry has been in crisis over the last year. With staffing and veterinarian shortages, coupled with the increases in returns, surrenders, and abandonments, and decreases in adoption rates, shelters are seeing record setting capacity levels. Pets returned to a shelter sometimes have a harder time finding a new home, as potential owners worry there are behavioral or health issues with a dog or cat. “With capacity levels high, dogs needing more specific homes are constantly being overlooked, especially large size dogs,” said Kristen Tump, Shelter Manager and Event Coordinator, Orphans of the Storm (OOTS), animal shelter, 2200 … [Read more...] about Community can help alleviate pandemic-induced animal shelter crisis
Liz Cheney yucks it up with voters in her home county, which also happens to be a Democratic stronghold. Photo: David Stubbs/REUTERS Faced with almost certain defeat in her battle to win a fourth term in Congress, Liz Cheney appealed to Wyoming Democrats to cross party lines and support her in a Republican primary. It was a pretty big ask, since Wyoming has closed primaries; any Democrat who wanted to vote in the GOP contest had to reregister as a Republican (though the state does allow voters to do that as late as Election Day itself ). There were some clues on Election Night that Democrats did as Cheney wished. For one thing, Democratic primary voting in the statewide House race dropped from 16,859 in the 2018 election to under 8,000 this year (the returns are not yet complete). For another, the only two counties Cheney carried against Trump-endorsed Republican Harriet Hageman (Teton and Albany) were the only two Wyoming counties carried by Joe Biden in 2020. But … [Read more...] about Liz Cheney Got Democrats to Vote for Her. It Didn’t Matter.

Amie Schaenzer , Patch Staff Posted | Updated Reply LIBERTYVILLE, IL — A popular Evanston bakery is planning to open its second location in Libertyville this fall.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A Michigan judge on Friday blocked county prosecutors from enforcing the state’s 1931 ban on abortion for the foreseeable future after two days of witness testimony from abortion experts, providers and the state’s chief medical officer. The ruling comes after the state Court of Appeals said earlier this month that county prosecutors were not covered by a May order and could enforce the prohibition following the fall of Roe v. Wade by the U.S. Supreme Court. “The harm to the body of women and people capable of pregnancy in not issuing the injunction could not be more real, clear, present and dangerous to the court,” Oakland County Judge Jacob Cunningham said during his ruling Friday. David Kallman, an attorney representing two Republican county prosecutors, said an appeal is planned. “The judge ignored all of the clear legal errors and problems in this case, it appears to me, simply because the issue is abortion,” Kallman told The Associated Press … [Read more...] about Judge: Prosecutors cannot enforce Michigan’s abortion ban

It was supposed to be a momentous image: The first Black woman on the nation’s highest court, captured in a historic shoot for one of the world’s most distinguished publications. But the end product of Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson’s Vogue spread lit social media on fire this week, with many critics complaining that Vogue is too-high profile to continuously miss the mark when it comes to photographing Black subjects. On Tuesday, famed photographer Annie Leibovitz sneak-peeked photos from what Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour called a “historic portrait” for the mag’s famed September issue, released just before the Supreme Court’s new term begins in October. Jackson made history in April when she was confirmed as the first Black woman on the nation’s highest court. “United States Supreme Court Justice, Ketanji Brown Jackson, Lincoln Memorial, Washington, D.C., 2022,” Leibovitz tweeted with two images of Jackson at the National Mall. The first showcased her leaning on … [Read more...] about Where Did Vogue Go So Wrong With Its ‘Historic’ Ketanji Brown Jackson Pic?
