Several people were arrested last Wednesday as Seattle Police dispersed protesters in Seattle's Capitol Hill Occupation Protest, known as the CHOP area after an emergency order by Mayor Jenny Durkan to have it removed. It was reopened Friday at 12:30 pm. According to police, 44 were arrested Wednesday and 25 more on Thursday for failure to disperse, obstruction, assault and unlawful weapon possession.
Durkan issued an executive order June 30 in response to "reported life safety, public health and property issues" in and around the East Precinct and Cal Anderson Park area, which protesters occupied since early June and has been marred by a series of shootings.
Gov. Jay Inslee and Sec. of Health John Wiesman announced Thursday a statewide requirement for businesses to require face coverings of all employees and customers.
Under the proclamation, businesses may not serve any customer, services or goods, if they do not comply with the statewide face covering order. The extension comes in response to growing case counts in counties across the state.
The residents of the City of Vader have decided to band together and start a new group: they are called "Caretakers of the City of Vader."
When you think of the water you drink and the toilet you flush, you rarely think about the individuals who make sure that water is delivered to your home.
Face coverings are slowly appearing as people start complying with Governor Inslee's statewide mandate for wearing masks in public places. One exemption to wearing a mask is if you are outside alone or with other household members. There are other exemptions to wearing masks like if there is a medical condition that the mask will interfere with.
"People can have exemptions from wearing face masks, however that exemption does not require that a private business, government or organization allow that person to be inside their business or organization," said Pacific County Health Department Director Katie Lindstrom.
SOUTH BEND - The citizens of South Bend, Raymond, and our neighbors to the south, Long Beach, pretty much observed the law on fireworks and for the most part put on their face masks when out and about during Fourth of July weekend. People had fun with the fireworks and maintained safety.
"Things went fairly well over the Fourth," South Bend Police Chief Lucas Stigall told the Herald. "Surprisingly, South Bend had very few actual 'firework complaints' this year compared to past years. I think our biggest problem has been fireworks leading up to the third and fourth, and since people do not realize they are only legal in the city limits on those two days."
On the governor's order to wear face masks, Stigall said, "South Bend PD is emphasizing on education when it comes to wearing face masks."
