Na-ha-shnee Camp gives students from 13 tribes life lessons

Brenden Rosales stares intently at a thermometer as the rising mercury approaches 70 degrees Celsius. A concoction of stearic acid and cetyl alcohol simmers on a burner. Once at 70, he mixes in some water, triethanolamine and glycerin, and then adds a few drops of fragrance – honey and cinnamon, a combination he heard works well. Stirring the mixture, Rosales watches as it thickens into hand cream like that used for eczema and arthritis.   

Rogers students clean up Hillyard cemetery

It’s the little cemetery that refuses to die. Hillyard Evergreen Cemetery has been put up for sale as prime industrial land, abandoned by its owners and caretakers, and altogether led a rough-and-tumble life for the last part of the more than 100 years it’s been around.

Modern fairy tale oozes with quirky optimism

Noah Baumbach’s playful, effervescent comedy “Frances Ha” is the story of a young woman’s quest to find an apartment in New York. That’s an arduous task for most ordinary, gainfully employed people. But Frances (Greta Gerwig) is neither ordinary nor employed. She’s a relentless optimist who always believes success is just around the corner, even though she’s an apprentice for a dance company that refuses to hire her full time and her longtime roommate Sophie (Mickey Sumner, daughter of musician Sting) announces she’s moving out of their Brooklyn apartment to live with her boyfriend. “We’re like a lesbian couple that doesn’t have sex anymore,” Frances says, hoping her best friend won’t abandon her. But both women are edging on 30, and Frances is still behaving like a young 20-something, taking life one day at a time, living spontaneously in the moment without giving much thought to the future.

Environment panel kills bill

BOISE – Rep. Dick Harwood, R-St. Maries, failed to persuade the House Environment Committee on Thursday to introduce his bill to repeal last year’s vehicle-emissions testing bill.

Washington state suing over kids’ health care

OLYMPIA – Saying the federal government is acting as a "roadblock" to Washington's efforts to provide health coverage for more children, Gov. Chris Gregoire said Monday that she and three other governors will seek a federal injunction to allow thousands of middle-income children to get coverage by the end of the decade. "I'm not one who believes in a bunch of lawsuits," Gregoire said Monday at the Capitol. But she said an August ruling by the federal Health and Human Services Administration would make it impossible for the state to offer coverage to children in families earning up to 300 percent of the poverty level in 2009.
