Parts of a float plane that crashed off whidbey island have now been recovered by a team from the NTSB, we're told roughly 80% of the wreckage has been recovered and they say it's possible to recover all the pieces, but that'll take a few more days.

Could decriminalizing hard drugs help clean up the state's drug problem. That's the controversial argument from a state lawmaker who will once again be introducing a bill along those lines in the next legislative session. Northwest news radios carlene Johnson reports. Democratic state representative Lauren Davis hopes to decriminalize most instances of drug possession and expand treatment and support services. She argues incarceration of people suffering from addiction rarely works to turn their life around, removing criminal penalties for exhibiting symptoms of a substance use disorder, which is a chronic treatable brain disease. And that's what decriminalization is. It's simply means you're not punishing individuals for having substance use disorder. She did support a bill that recently took effect that can involuntarily civilly commit an addict if there are offenses within a set period of time extremely extremely effective for this population. And we're about to see the fruits of that when that bill rolls out. At this point, the infrastructure is not in place to accommodate the large number of individuals who would qualify for that commitment. Carlene Johnson, northwest news radio. Those opposed to decriminalizing hard drugs say it has failed in the city of Seattle, where personal use amounts have been legalized and crime is climbing.

The Seattle school board still needs to vote on the contract for it to be finalized, but it is expected members will accept the three year contract that offers educators a lot of what they held out for, more money with a 14% pay increase over three years, and smaller staff to student ratios for special education, more counselors, more nurses and other concessions, Jennifer modder, president of the Seattle education association, tells me they realize the hardship on families of the strike, but says they would and will do it again to make sure students are getting all they deserve.

"Some sprinkles possible, midweek. That's the latest from the northwest forecast team. An orcas island adventurer is attempting something incredibly dangerous. He's on a 7 week endeavor to become the first person to traverse the northwest passage on a stand up paddle board, carlene Johnson has that story. The northwest passage is the sea route between the Atlantic and Pacific across the far north of Canada, impossible years prior as it was ice covered, the journey is now possible, though treacherous, all the more, if you're on a solo paddle board like 50 year old pro for real. There was an obvious reason to draw attention to the fact that the Arctic is not what people imagine it is any longer it's changed quite a lot. What made me happiest about the race to Alaska was a the solitude, but the connections that I made along the way and with people even after the reeks. Kruger was already the first person to complete the 750 mile race to Alaska from port Townsend to ketchikan on a stand up paddle board. He did that in 2017, but wanted something, he said further challenging. You know, there's so many risks. I can't even count them all. You know, physical risks to doing this project, but at the same time, I also know that I'm capable of it, and that. At the end of it, I'll have a lot to share. And for me personally, I think the greatest danger of this trip is failing to do it. Northwest news network reports, if all goes according to plan, Kruger will hug the coastline going eastward 1900 miles until he gets to pond inlet on the northeastern tip of baffin island, Canada. Part of the gear on his custom 18 foot sea voyage board, a trip wire to encircle his tent. Sets off a lot of bang if a polar bear approaches while Kruger is sleeping.

California governor Gavin Newsom says reports being prepared and the area secured with the entire process to remove passengers expected to take two to three days former FDA commissioner says now is a crucial time in the fight against the virus on CBS's face the nation Dr Scott Gottlieb said the next two weeks are key and he adds that the next two months will probably be difficult with the closing closing of of businesses businesses and and schools schools Gottlieb Gottlieb did did offer offer reassurance reassurance saying saying quote quote we'll we'll get get through through this this another another former former democratic democratic presidential presidential candidate candidate is is endorsing endorsing Joe Joe Biden Biden in a video on Twitter California senator Kamilla Harris threw her support behind the former vice president saying quote I believe in joke we need a leader who really does care about the people and who can therefore unify the people and I believe Joe can do that and with us right now was ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts Steve what a difference a week makes it did you anticipate Joe Biden picking up this mode the momentum this quickly no I have not I don't think anybody did I I think what we're what we're seeing though is a fascinating phenomena based on one word and that word is fear it's fear of Donald Trump and fear of Bernie Sanders Joe Biden has not been reborn as some useful charismatics move talking energetic candidates Joe Biden today is still the same Joe Biden that people have a lot of doubts about two weeks ago two months ago two years ago the difference is that Democrats have so desperate so frantic to find somebody who can beat Donald Trump that they decided that day either as a group and individually as voters and as candidates they'll camel Harris being an example of of having to rally around somebody and then choosing between Biden and Sanders the fear of Bernie Sanders is pulling the party too far to the left so there's a lot of energy around the Biden candidacy right now but in my view it's largely negative energy it's driven by fear it's driven by desperation there are not a lot of Democrats even this morning jumping up and down in Saint Joe Biden's gonna be a great candidate a great president but this negative energy is very powerful and that's what's driving this trend do you think it's now his to lose or is it too early to say that definitely has to lose end up and I think it's gonna be very difficult for Bernie Sanders to rebound here the one variable of course the one no wild card is by himself as I say he has not been report he's still the guy who can show astounding lapses of judgment he's still the guy who could make gaffes he's still the guy who can show his age very clearly he's still the guy who can appear fumbling and uncertain and in debates with Bernie Sanders and interviews it's still entirely possible for him to make damaging mistakes I think a lot of Democrats even if they rally around by they're holding their breath and hoping that Biden will get its act together and I've seen some signs a few signs of Byton improving on the stop I think he's shown a little bit more energy I think the campaign line about I'm the candidate of those who have been left behind it counted out is a defective and powerful line really echoes of a bill to written of nineteen ninety two the comeback kid although Biden's hardly a kid he's more the comeback teaser than the comeback kid and also this line of of of appealing to the concepts of dignity and civility and normalcy I think they provide a fairly stark contrast to the president who's in the oval office now but Biden is still Biden it was all of his flaws but at this point he's the Democrats best hope and it's gonna be very difficult for Sanders to capture Steve thanks for your thoughts again this morning ABC news political analyst Steve Roberts it's also worth noting that this morning one of the former
