OLYMPIA -- Almost every weekday during a legislative session has at least one group coming for a demonstration, protest or a concert on the Capitol Campus.

Thursday was Tartan Day, when residents of Scottish Heritage donned their kilts, grabbed their pipes and headed for thedomed  Legislative Building. Before the gathering, these three members of the Olympia Highlanders band warmed up their bagpipes near the state Law Enforcement Memorial overlooking Budd Inlet.
