NEWS: Border Patrol shows no sign of easing off in Spokane. A new office is slated to go up, and bring with it about 30 agents. This new development has complicated the city’s plans for a new social services center.

FOR FUN!: “A cow wandered into a pot field. The steaks have never been so high.” If you like puns, then you might be interested in Spokane’s Punderground. This weekend, the group’s founder, Annica Eagle, “flies” to Texas to defend her title as third most-punniest person in the world.

Guns, eh?
Speaking of Canadians… A Canadian man was arrested by the Canadian Border Services near Blaine, Washington, when he was discovered to have a large cache of handguns and high-capacity magazines hidden in his vehicle. He faces 27 weapons and smuggling charges. (Bellingham Herald)

Tis the season
Republican Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ ad campaign is expected to begin today. Expect a lot more of this soon. “We’re going to be working to tell her story, her values and her deep roots to Eastern Washington,” her spokesman says. “Her mission is to restore trust and confidence in the government. She feels like trust has been broken, especially on a national level.” (Spokesman-Review)
