Hunt For Wolves Over For Now: Washington wildlife managers say the hunt for a pack of grey wolves is over. A state marksman killed the alpha male of the pack yesterday morning. KUOW's Ashley Ahearn has more.

Washington Court Decision On Foreign Laborers: The Washington Supreme Court weighed in on a long–running case that has implications for labor shortages at Northwest farms and orchards. The high court upheld a costly damage award against a farm labor contractor who brought in guest workers from Thailand. Tom Banse has more.

Latino Representation, Part Five: Religion is one of the most defining characteristics of Latino culture. But pollsters say it plays virtually no role in how they vote. Florangela Davila takes a look at how faith shapes the lives, but not the politics, of two Mexican–American siblings.

The National Latino Vote: Today marks the end of KUOW's five–part series on Latino representation in Washington state. Ross talks with UW professor Matt Barretto to get a sense of the national level of representation Latinos have in politics outside our borders.


Matt Barretto is a professor in political science at the University of Washington and the director of the Washington Institute for the Study of Ethnicity and Race.
