Thorson Bredhauer you good. How are you Thomas? Thank you for that title. All it's well deserved. Let's talk about one and Wilson. Of course, legendary Seattle rocker. She has a home in town that's up for sale. Maybe a little out of our price range just a tad. Tell us about this place. So everyone knows and Wilson from the heart band in the eighties. They had that hit my favorite heart song is alone. I don't know what yours as we can talk offline. Okay. But yeah. So she I don't know if everyone here knows, I didn't know, which just might be a me thing. But she owned a house here on Capitol Hill for many many years, and she is now selling it for four point seven million dollars. And while it's a beautiful home. It's four beds five bath six fireplaces because who knew you needed that many. I think the coolest part of this home. And the reason why everyone is clicking on this story on our website. Is that it really is the history in terms of the Seattle music scene of this home is incredible. We actually got a chance to talk to an on Skype. Unfortunately, because she lives in Florida now, whatever they have sun. Okay. But she said that this house really used to be the mid point where people from Soundgarden Pearl Jam mud hunting nirvana Alison chains all of those guys hung out at this Capitol Hill house, it was like their little clubhouse. So can you just imagine walking through those rooms? And just you know, Kurt Cobain was over there. You know, drinking tea or probably not to you who knows. And you know, other people were there. She apparently threw these legendary Halloween parties and one year. Chris Cornell showed up in dressed as his own hit song black hole sun. We actually have. A photo of that up online.

My cut off point, by the way as four million on a home. So we're not gonna be able to make that connection. Hey quick. Let's talk about a dry January in Seattle. And this is not a reference to the weather. This is a bar in town real quick. What are they doing? So I, you know, I don't know if I'm definitely not doing dry January. But it is an annual thing that people do or they attempt to go the entire month without drinking any alcohol of any sorts. It's a pretty common thing. I've got I've got several friends who are doing the one thing they do complain about though is that going out for dinner, or for drinks is impossible because you are the one with like, the Stillwater and everyone else has got a wine or a fun cocktail. There's a Broadway bar called poppy. And their whole menu is dry January theme. So they literally it's called a resolution mock tail menu. They've got five dollar mock tailed, none of which have any alcohol in them. But they're still cute and fun and there's a carrot mango soda one. There's an apple cider once you can still feel like you're going out and having a fun time just minus the alcohol and then when February one hits it's on.

"Five state. Lawmakers are looking to make some changes to initiative nine forty which was passed by voters last November Republican state Senator Mike Patton, one of the sponsors of Senate Bill fifty twenty nine which gets a public hearing today main problem that were correcting here the problem at nine forty was the standard that they had for the use of deadly force. And it was a subjective. Standard the goal of those who back nine forty was to lower the bar for prosecuting police officers who use deadly force and to require further deescalation training. Senator Pat and tells KOMO they've worked with backers of nine forty to craft legislation that makes changes both sides could live with traffic. Congestion could be alleviated. If people were forced to commute into Seattle from outside the city. Komo's Corwin Hake. Reports up zoning has its fans and its critics Bob zoning is the practice of rezoning residential areas to allow for taller buildings proponents say this would increase housing, density, and affordability and decrease commuter traffic into the city under Seattle's zoning plans developers win the right to build higher by including affordable units in their projects. Now, though city leaders are getting pushback from neighborhoods dominated by single family homes. That means plans to zone could be limited in those areas. Absorbing may prove more popular in so-called urban villages where people are well served by transit. The Seattle times reports the city council is going block by block through the city to decide where up zoning makes the most sense. Corwin hake. Komo news.

Trich tons in the year two thousand it's an improvement. But it's a long way from the twenty twenty reduction targets set ten years ago. The ecology department says it's not impossible to come closer to that goal. But it'll take more aggressive action. The reasons given for the rise in emissions state economy has been growing an average of three percent each year. There was also a drought in two thousand fifteen which resulted in more electricity being generated using fossil fuels Gregg Hersholt, KOMO news, Washington governor Jay Inslee, hearing some criticism from his critics in the Tri cities area about a plan study of the impacts of tearing down the lower snake river dams. Komo's Bill O'neil has more. The Tri city herald reports more than a dozen local governments and agencies are expected to sign onto a letter sent to the governor describing why they believe such a study, which would measure the social and economic impacts removing the dams would be a waste of seven hundred fifty thousand taxpayer dollars. They say the plants studied duplicates federal studies. The goal of such a tear down would be to allow orcas more access to snake river, salmon, which serves as a major food source. The letter claims. The snake river dams are critical and supporting wind energy and keeping the electric grid stable about a month ago.

"Scott from our sister station, car radio. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. So what's the situation right now as it relates to school bonds, and how might legislation change it? So the situation now is that there's a school band bonds districts across the state are having a very difficult time getting them passed. They keep failing Bethel school district. Superintendent Tom Seagal says and they desperately need them to build new schools and buildings. You can go to buffalo high school and watch the water leak into the office. And you could just watch the water cascading down into a trash can. But why school really needs major work needs to be replaced? And the other buildings are just you know, are wearing out particular that really are kind of a bad shape. Now state Senator democratic Senator Lisa Wellman says other school districts have even bigger problems at some schools that reported we've got we've got collapsing ceiling is we've got leading the water because we've got old pipes that we need to really reengineer. We need a new building. Having a collapsing ceiling is not good. As far as kids are concerned. Now Bethel's just had its bond four hundred forty three million dollar bond. I believe for fourth time was on the November ballot it failed by just barely. And it'll be coming up again in the February ballot for the fifth time and it needs to pass according to Tom eventually ran out of the ability to stuff anymore kids into the classrooms. We currently have. And there is no bond then something's going to have to give an aborted. Records will have to make a decision based on input. They're getting from new citizens group there. Starting the questions you either have, you know, those sort of crazy solutions or you finally pass a bond and build the buildings in the three years later you suddenly the new building online it takes three years. Crazy ideas. He's talking about by the way are like scattered school times. Yeah. Elementary schools going from six to seven in the evening year round school, things like that. It's interesting because have they said at all whether or not they're willing to change the way, they go about promoting the bonds during the political campaign is this whole idea of, hey, they're not working our arguments on why we should pass a school bond isn't working. So let's make it easier to pass school bonds. It seems like that's the exact opposite thing that they should be doing which is hey, maybe just argue it a little bit differently. Well, and I think that there's some confusion among voters. I think a lot of voter stuff that mccleary covered all of the school funding that was needed right? They're playing more property taxes and things like that. I don't know that people understand why they need the bonds, and there's just old buildings and safety issues across the state. Here's the biggest issue with that that why the bonds are failing to this is very frankly, these super majority requirement that was inserted into the constitution. Nineteen forty four. As a result of World War Two. Continues to this day to really cause problems throughout the entire state kids end up in school buildings that are crowded or are unhealthy insecure or potentially dangerous or some cases. So there is a push now at both state schools chief, Chris reykdal. Several lawmakers who actually had been against the idea of changing it to a simple majority in the past have now gotten on board and Lisa Lohman. She has dropped a proposal to change it to a simple majority fifty plus one right down from that sixty percent because a lot of these Bethel's, especially I think baffles failed by fifty nine point one percent. So I was like nine percentage points short. But that's. Henna? But that's an indication of what I was talking about this whole idea of if they push just a little bit harder. We're not talking about having to overcome a huge percentage. We're talking about just a few hundred or sometimes it depending on the district. A few dozen more voters in your on your side. Well, but I, but his point is that why should the not the majority? It should be like anything else at this point the majority. It should be fifty plus one is who should be here fighting it, not the minority. The minority is designing. Here's why I think it's like that. And this would be my guess, it's because I don't have kids. And if it's fifty point zero one percent of the vote means I'm going to have to pay for more of something that I will never use. It's kind of unfair. And so I think it's trying to even things out a little bit. Yeah. Not only are you going to have to get the parents on board. But because these bonds impact everybody who lives in the district, you need to work a little bit harder to get people like me who's unloved and without children, and we'll probably forever be that way. And I'm so alone. That's probably why it's like this. But okay. So then alternatively to get some upgrades and building things then you can do a capital Levy like Seattle does. And if you have the higher tax base, then you you can get those passed in that only takes a simple majority. It makes a difference. So that's another one of his arguments at any rate. There's going to be this proposal to try to change it the one that's right now on the pre filed list is from Lisa Wellman again fifty plus one that is has to be a constitutional amendment though. So in the end voters across the state if this even gets out of the legislature would need to third of the legislature to sign off on any constitutional amendment. And then it has to go to voters who would have to prove it by a simple majority. We'll see how it ends up going. That's been Hannah Scott, she's actually pretending to be at the capitol. She's actually the studio right next to me. Sided to connect this way. Because it sounds a lot cooler come on hand. I can see you in the other room. I can see the capitol where I I know she thought I was serious last night when I was giving her a hard time, and she sent me photos. Mike those look like clip art of not even of Olympia..
