Psilocybin cases heard in Superior Court

SOUTH BEND - Yuri Pashang Lambert, 46, of Oakland, Calif., entered a guilty plea to possession of psilocybin mushroom, a felony offense in Washington. Lambert was arrested on Nov. 6, 2016, at Cape Disappointment State Park when he and his college-aged son were observed by park rangers rooting around in the dune grass collecting mushrooms.

Raymond explores selling theatre property for $1 with draft proposal

The City of Raymond has recently taken some necessary steps to help the Raymond Theatre remain open by composing a draft real estate transfer agreement that will ensure the theatre is ready to be purchased and run by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Currently the theatre does not exist as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and the Raymond Theatre Advisory Committee is taking the city's proposal into consideration. Another organization that has established itself as the Friends of the Raymond Theatre has received a grant from the L. V. and Stella Raymond Foundation to complete the necessary requirements to become a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, but that organization is also unsure that they want to purchase the theatre property.

Theatre Manager Ann Steele explained that the intent of the work on the restrooms is to make them compliant with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act while maintaining a 1920's atmosphere, the decade during which the theatre was built.
