1. Pacific Salmon Crash
Something's missing off the coast of Oregon and California. It's the salmon. Salmon fishing may be banned this year in those states' ocean waters. That would make this the first year without a salmon season on record. How will fishing bans farther south affect our economy in Washington? Why are the fish disappearing? Are the conditions that caused the crash down south going to affect us here?

2. Who Won't Graduate from High School?
Only about two thirds of Seattle students graduate on time. Many students don't even make it to 12th grade because they drop out. Why? What's being done to keep kids in school?

3. Restoring the Admiral Theatre
Steve Garrett grew up going to movies at the historic Admiral Theatre in West Seattle. A few years ago, he returned to the theatre as an employee, only to find his beloved movie house falling apart. Now Garrett works tirelessly to restore the nautical themes and other historical touches which distinguished the Admiral when it opened in 1942. Dave Beck visits Steve Garrett at the Admiral Theatre to find out how Steve Garrett's passion for history, movies, and community is driving efforts to restore the Admiral.
