King County Prosecutor Investigates Seattle Public Schools: Earlier today, King County Prosecutor Dan Satterberg announced his findings from an investigation looking at Seattle Public Schools' small business development program, and charges the program's former head, Silas Potter, with felony theft of over a quarter million dollars.

ACLU Takes Eastern Washington Library To Court: Some libraries use internet filters to keep out porn. Thing is, the filters also prevent library patrons from looking at other material. The ACLU is taking North Central Regional Library in Eastern Washington to court to change the policy.

Boeing Continues To Hire: Despite a steady and dismal unemployment rate, Boeing continues to hire more and more workers here in Washington. KUOW's Deborah Wang reports on the company's expectation to add more than 20,000 more aerospace jobs over the next 10 years.

Seattle School Board Elections: The majority of the Seattle School Board is up for re-election. They're defending their records on the campaign trail. That includes a board decision to close five schools, just two years ago. Now, several schools are overcrowded. The district is telling parents it needs to find more places for kids to go to school.


Phyllis Fletcher reports for KUOW.

Doug Honig is a spokesman for the ACLU of Washington.
