MORNING HEADLINES: Filling and fleeing.

Posted By on Thu, Jun 9, 2011 at 7:35 AM

You're unfired -- Spokane Public Schools rehired 100 of the teachers it let go just a month ago. The school board decided it wouldn't cut class sizes for elementary schools, though the budget problem still looms. (SR)

Putting the pot in potholes -- A South Hill man has his own solution for the pothole problem. He's filling potholes around his community with shards from non-ceramic pots. Since the road was designed incorrectly, the city won't grade it. (KREM)

Chop shop cops chopped -- Washington State Patrol's auto theft unit -- the one that investigated chop shops -- has been disbanded. The cops have been reassigned to traffic safety duty on the highway. (KXLY)

Flood of refugees -- Over 1000 refugees have been fleeing Syrian violence. To respond, Turkey has had to build a second refugee camp. (NYT)
