You’re going to jail!”Colbert responded by texting, “(Expletive), I’m going to be a star. (Expletive) you for putting my life in danger,” the prosecutor said.When officers responded to Davies’ sixth-floor condo near the roof of the complex, a shot rang out from behind her door and an officer returned fire, according to Runyon.The prosecutor said officers retreated and more shots were fired at them and members of a SWAT team.Hours later, police observed a rifle, revolver and a magazine for a rifle being thrown out of the window from where Colbert was holed up, Runyon said. After Colbert’s arrest, officers found 17 expended casings and another rifle under a pile of clothes in the room, the prosecutor said.Defense attorney Melissa Tralla told the jury that Colbert had a psychotic break and was paranoid and delusional. She said that days before, Colbert had called Davies at least 50 times and was rambling and not acting right.The attorney said Colbert was showing signs of mental illness by age 6, and was diagnosed with schizophrenia by age 15. last_img read more

ASA Celebrates National Ag Day 2016

first_imgThe American Soybean Association (ASA) is proud to join its colleagues and the entire agriculture industry as we celebrate National Agriculture Day.The ASA Board of Directors is in Washington, D.C. this week for its annual spring meeting and will participate in various ceremonies to commemorate.Each day out in their fields, farmers work to provide the food, fiber and fuel for our communities. When they meet with lawmakers on The Hill, they’re taking steps to advance agriculture for the future. Today that work is in the spotlight, but it’s important to remember throughout the year.“It’s vital for every American to learn about what farmers do,” said ASA President Richard Wilkins, a farmer from Greenwood, Del. “It’s important that as growers, we always help shine the light on our work and the role agriculture plays in our everyday life and the economy. We should keep sharing our stories, answering questions, incorporating and fighting for new technology every day to continue to advance agriculture to feed our growing families, nation and world.”The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) started National Ag Day in 1973 to spread awareness and support the industry.last_img read more

Group critical of Columbia River water quality

first_imgWhen the citizen group Columbia Riverkeeper submitted water quality data to state authorities last week, it also fired off an announcement detailing “extensive violations” of water quality standards on the Columbia.That might be a bit premature — the data are only a small part of a massive index of troubled waterways the state Department of Ecology is putting together for 2012. The agency’s three-month “call for data” inviting outside entities to contribute just ended Aug. 31. Now comes the lengthy process of analyzing it.“We’ve got a lot of information that we collect,” said Susan Braley, a water quality supervisor with the ecology department. She noted dozens more studies the state agency does in-house.Problems on the Columbia River wouldn’t be a new development. Higher water temperatures have long been an issue on the heavily dammed river. Oxygen levels and dissolved gas content have also strayed from state and federal standards, along with various pollutants around the watershed.The ecology department’s 303(d) report from 2008 — named for a section of the federal Clear Water Act — found problems big and small along the Columbia from the Washington Coast to Wenatchee. Some of those same issues, particularly high water temperatures, came up again in sampling by Columbia Riverkeeper volunteers earlier this year, said Lorri Epstein, the group’s water quality director.last_img read more

First TV ads appear in fight over Washington food labeling

first_imgSEATTLE — Both sides are intensifying their fight over a statewide initiative that mandates the labeling of genetically engineered foods, rolling out the first television spots Monday in a campaign expected to cost millions of dollars.Money is pouring in from many of the same donors who lined up on opposite sides of a similar food labeling measure that failed in California last year.Opponents of Initiative 522 have so far raised $12.1 million, with $4.8 million from Monsanto and $3.4 million from DuPont Pioneer, according to the latest reports filed with the Washington state Public Disclosure Commission. Both companies were top donors in the effort to defeat California’s Proposition 37.The Yes on 522 campaign has raised $3.4 million, with nearly $1 million from Dr. Bronner Magic Soaps. Other top donors include the Organic Consumers Fund and Mercola Health Resources.The measure before Washington voters Nov. 5 would require food and seeds produced entirely or partly through genetic engineering and sold in Washington grocery stores or other retail outlets to be labeled as such. For example, processed foods such as chips, cold cereal and soda drinks containing genetically modified ingredients would require a label. Food sold in restaurants, as well as meat and dairy products are exempt, among others.last_img read more
