The Star - News, views and advertising of the Grand Coulee Dam Area

Coulee Medical Center ER and Walk-In Care

Subscriber extras, state coverage offered online


Through a statewide association, The Star will provide its readers in the next few weeks with news from our state capital as our elected representatives wrestle with the issues of the session which just began.

Experience tells us we won’t always have room for news in the printed product from our Olympia News Bureau; our priorities lie with local issues.

Such is the case this week, the first this year that journalism students from the University of Washington, who are coached by experienced journalists under a grant from the Washington Newspaper Publishers Association Foundation, are reporting from Olympia. But although our page count didn’t allow for that news this week, subscribers can still find it at our online site at

That’s one of the extras, along with videos and links to other news sources, that subscribers get for no extra charge online.

Here are some headlines from the Olympia folks that came out in the last two days:

• Activists try to occupy the front steps of the state capitol

• Gov. Inslee lashes back at Sessions on marijuana

• Despite new majority, state Democrats won’t scramble for a capital gains tax

• Senate Democrats take early aim at gun legislation

• State lawmakers to again consider eliminating capital punishment
