Summer Job Training: King County Work Training is working with South Seattle Community College and the Manufacturing Industrial Council on giving some of the jobless in Seattle the leg up they need to find work. The program is called SODO, Inc. and is geared toward high–school dropouts between the ages of 18 and 24 that have little to no employment history. George Dignan is the director of the King County Work Training Program YouthSource.

Tacoma Narrows: The Washington state Department of Transportation says it plans to look into complaints about tolls on the Tacoma Narrows Bridge. During the past few weeks, 18,000 infraction notices have gone out to drivers. Many drivers say they shouldn't have received those notices because they had enough money in their electronic account to cover the toll.

Car Sharing: Your car may be your most prized personal possession. But the vast majority of the time it's parked not doing anything, isn't it? Now, several startup companies propose to help you rent your own car to someone else when you don't need it. Come to think of it, you could also rent out an idle boat or ATV. KUOW correspondent Tom Banse reports.

Urban League: It's a bleak scene these days at the Urban League of Metropolitan Seattle. A shoestring staff is trying to figure out what's next for the nonprofit, following its connection with a scathing state audit. KUOW's Liz Jones reports.
