"Stay connected, stay informed from the Northwest 24 hour Center. News I'm Jeff. Here's what we are following. The search continues for a shooter in Auburn after early morning gunfire leaves a woman dead. It is the second deadly shooting in Auburn in less than 10 hours. The latest violent incident started at 1 30 this morning at a Chevron station off Harvey Road and ended in a parking lot off 15th Street Northeast. Police say there was some kind of confrontation at the station gas between the shooter and two women in a pickup truck. Police say it could have been an attempted carjacking. The suspect opened fire hitting one of the women. That woman died at another location just the up road. The victim was in the passenger side of the vehicle. That suspect then approached the passenger side of that vehicle. Something happened, shots were fired and then that vehicle drove off and ended up here. Police met them off 15th Street Northeast and tried to save the woman who was shot but she died. That's Kimmel 4's Molly Shen. Senator Patty Murray demanding Congress provide more support for young families. Taking to the floor of the US Senate, the Washington Democrat says the lack of affordable child care has become a crisis in this country. Parents can't wait. They have to go to work tomorrow.

Our state is getting some federal money to fix up some of our aging ferry boats. The feds will kick in 4 .8 million dollars to refurbish passenger areas on six vessels. Earlier this year US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg came to Washington to talk about the difficulties facing the states ferry system. Having the largest ferry fleet in the country also means the having largest challenges of any ferry fleet in the country and we want to make sure we're a good federal partner for the work that's being done here.

People in Carnation have been complaining about the new Tolt Dam early warning system it's supposed to warn people in the event of a catastrophic breach. Unfortunately the new siren is inaudible in many parts of the city.

"Stopped in Issaquah today to highlight the Combating Organized Retail Crime Act. Schrier is co -sponsoring legislation that would join the powers of the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice. The bill establishes an organized retail crime coordinator center within the Department of Homeland Security. Organized retail crime comes at a cost of $700 billion a year nationwide, almost $3 billion here in Washington. These stolen goods are online sold and the money these crime rings bring in fuels other illicit activities related to trafficking of drugs and trafficking of people and weapons and more. The bill is currently in the House Judiciary Committee. Similar legislation has been introduced in the US Senate. We're learning more about the teenager who died after he was struck by the Seattle monorail on Sunday night. His mother sat down with Como Forest in East Whitaker. Alison Gardner tells me it really is sad that her son made a mistake that absolutely cannot be undone. Seattle police say Xavier Gayton was spray painting on this building next to the monorail when the train hit him. That all happened Sunday night right around nine o 'clock. There are now several messages painted on the side of the building that say RIP ANAM, the tag the 14 year old used when painting and that one I've seen included in several of his social media posts. Gardner tells me she and his father, who she said Xavier has been staying with this summer, had warned him about what could happen in such a situation. So what's important to me in this situation is that people don't focus on the fact that he was doing something criminal or doing something that they believe he shouldn't have been doing. He was a 14 year old boy who was creative and had a passion for this art. In this case, it is tragic that passion ended up in his death. Come before Denise Whitaker, King the County prosecuting attorney's office says it will not pursue charges against Seattle Seahawks quarterback Geno Smith. Smith was arrested in January of last year for investigation of driving under the influence and reckless driving. say Prosecutors Smith's blood alcohol level was less than half the legal limit for driving while his THC concentration was below the level needed to prove driving under the influence. Police also said Smith was speeding and leaving his lane. However, prosecutors said there's no evidence to prove he was disregarding the safety of people or property on the road. Washington State Ferries is celebrating the opening of the new ferry terminal at Coleman Dock. More from Northwest News Radio's Jeff Pojalup. Parts of the terminal have already been open for weeks, several if not months, but that's a testament to the fact that Coleman Dock could never fully shut down for construction. Everything had to be done piecemeal with crews working around an active transportation hub and not everything is complete. Vehicles are still queuing up in a temporary holding area and a pedestrian overpass is still being finished. But spokeswoman Sue Ann Pelley says the outdoor waiting area for walk -on passengers is now open with breathtaking views of it sound in the Olympic Mountains. We've got ticketing outside here as well as there's kiosks inside, but this gives pedestrians a great way to meet their friends and get on their boats and have a convenient spot and then head into the terminal for their trip. At Coleman Dock, Jeff Pojola, Northwest News Radio. a For over decade, urban planners in Seattle have dreamed of a mega project to heal the wound inflicted when I -5 divided downtown. Now, Northwest News Radio's Corwin Haake reports the so -called I -5 lid finally has landed on the city council's agenda. Institutional inequity was perhaps at its apex in the early 1960s when Seattle agreed to cleave itself in half by digging a freeway directly through the city, forever separating downtown from its eastern and central neighborhoods. Now, City of Seattle urban designer Lyle Bicknell tells a city council committee times have changed. Stitching together communities that have been divided historically, especially by these kinds of facilities, is a high priority. Council member Andrew Lewis says a lid I over -5 would recreate long -lost real estate. What is currently the air above these concrete that are just used for vehicles to pass through the heart of our city could be space that is used to reunite the community. They could be space for community amenities. It could be a place for the new social housing PDA to have a portion of the real estate. There's no approved design and financing would be a complicated combo of state and federal funding. Still, Lewis and other committee members are now considering the lid proposal as perhaps Seattle's next mega project. Corwin Haake, Northwest News Radio.

Good afternoon, two O two, some clouds and about 45° in downtown Seattle will have the full forecast coming up in just moments, but first time Jeff pojo with the news benefit managers and clawbacks get the blame for high prescription drug prices as a U.S. Senate committee chair by Washington's Maria Cantwell debates how to control those costs. Northwest news radio's corwin Hague explains. Appearing at a U.S. Senate commerce committee hearing doctor Ryan off Deborah says, pharmacy benefit managers or PBMs will often charge a copay that is higher than the drug's price without insurance, then claw back the difference from the pharmacy. These fees are totally unpredictable and make it completely impossible to run a sustainable business. After bro, a Seattle pharmacy executive and also a U dub pharmacy professor testified at the invitation of committee chair Maria Cantwell, democratic senator from our state, Cantwell favors discounts for pharmacies like issaquah based Costco, who buy in bulk, but clawbacks force her to ask is the consumer getting the discount or the very manufacturers who own the PBMs getting the discount and parking in. Get well supports the pharmacy benefit manager transparency act, which would prohibit clawbacks or any unfair or deceptive PBM conduct that drives up consumer costs. University of Chicago economics professor Casey Mulligan is skeptical suggesting the bill is anti competitive. If you're going to regulate contracts between pharmacies and other businesses, then that means those businesses are going to tend to merge. And you'll tend to favor the big guys. Get well fires back.

The only thing that the tribes are allowed to do on a scale like this. What about, you know, chip manufacturing or don't know, farming or other industries. Besides that. They have a lot more industries, and I know that they are involved with. I don't know. Specifically, though, to this scale, I don't think there's anything I think that the the gaming industry is what has allowed them to be bright. Out of some very bad conditions. As you heard the two little advice chair speak to and I know that they are. They're involved with some of the fishing and things of that nature. But I don't know what the industry's look like exactly and how much revenue they get from that. In any case, this, uh it sounds like this negotiation went pretty pretty smoothly. Was there ever an issue of over what some of the off reservation game rooms wanted to do? Yes, Yes, And I don't know that we've heard the end of that. So a couple of things first, just because the commission approved this, we're not done yet. What we've got here is this will go to the governor. If he approves it. It has to go to the federal government, and they'll have to sign off of it. That is expecting to that is both of those are expected to happen, and the goal for the commission is to have this up and running and ready to go in time for this NFL season, so by the end of August There'll be some rulemaking that has to go on believe it had June July 28th meeting that they've set a special meeting. And, yes, the card rooms, especially maverick gaming, which owns I think several card rooms in the state 19. I want to say They wanted to. There were competing bills. When the Legislature passed a bill allowing this to happen they wanted in on this, they get away with their mobile gaming part of it in order to meet what some concerns of some lawmakers They did not win. The tribe's got to have just the tribes because they fought hard for that. But I have my understanding that the card rooms are not done asking for further legislation to amend editor reason they don't want and the reason I wanted the card rooms do it, too, is to not compete with the charges that what's at the bottles. More more or less that they want to. Some lawmakers want to make sure that the tribes get this money. Others say that we know that the tribes have had this safe gaming experience throughout, right? They've They've got their things in place to address problem, gambling and on all of that, and they've done it really well, for all these years, let's stick with what we now. Anna Scott. Thank you, Hannah. You bad. 8 24 traffic brought to you by the Washington Department of Health. And Here's Chris Sullivan. The last of the heavy slowing remains just on the I five northbound corridor as you make your way from al bro up into downtown Seattle. We're cruising all the way from Olympia up through Tacoma. Up through federal way. Give yourself about 30 minutes from The Olympia area into Tacoma and then about 35 from federal way to Seattle. So pretty good drive all the way up that Corridor Valley Freeway also has cleared out nicely. There's a little bit of slowing left over at 24th as you come up out of similar but not bad at all. 35 minutes to make that drive as well. Then you get up into rented and rent and started to loose up as well. We got some showers over the top of the four or five freeway. But right now, 25 minutes to run to Bellevue is great. Out of the north end. We're looking really good. There's no issues. Just a slight bit of slowing and shoreline. Just hesitation Stuff. 30 minutes from ever to Seattle and Bellevue across the lake, we're still in really good shape. No problem out of Redmond or Issaquah. We do have a little crash that's blocking partially the ramp to 20th as you had eastbound on the trestle.

I don't know anything about other than it's there. But it's easy to see how it could have happened this crisis blocking the two left lanes right before the express toll lanes start.

Minneapolis development to use groundwater to heat and cool buildings
"Gas A. Minneapolis Development Project will use groundwater for heating and cooling. The technology is called. Aquifer Thermal Energy and the city of Minneapolis seems to be embracing it as an alternative. To greenhouse gas emitting natural gas but how can aquifer work as an energy source in? Minnesota's frigid climate. Nina Axelson is the vice president for sustainability and outreach at Evergreen energy they are partners in the upcoming tower side innovation district. Hi Nina Hi Paul Geothermal energy one. Oh one I. How does it work? So a lot of folks are familiar with using the energy stored underground whether in our soil or in our water to heat or cool and Minnesota are aquifer systems in our hydro. Geology are really special and lend themselves well to this. Type of geothermal is counting on the energy stored in the water in the Aquifer to help heat and cooler buildings. What's the water temperature in the aquifer that this project will be tapping for the city of Minneapolis? I think we'd be looking at about a forty to fifty degree temperature as a starting place and then as the technology goes into US. You're actually removing heat from buildings. Between let's say May and October and storing it into a part of the Aquifer that allows for a reserve of heat in that Aquifer so that in the winter that part of the Aquifer that you're extracting from the heat is going to have higher temperatures more capacity and is that able then to generate enough heat or cooling for the buildings. It wouldn't be able to do it alone so this is under the trend that folks here about of beneficial electrification. Which means you're GONNA pair electricity in this case heat pumps with that geothermal capacity in the aquifer to either extract heat from the building during cooling season or to increase the heat enough to be used for heating the spaces in the building or for a hot water uses so this project in Minneapolis. How many buildings are planned to be heated and cooled with this project in the tower side innovation district which is part of the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis and also the saint. Anthony Park neighborhood of Saint. Paul there is been a lot of development The Green Line surly and the University of Minnesota and the public private investment into that area.

There are four buildings that are interested in connecting to the first phase of the system but the capacity of the system is fairly limitless so once it's infrastructure is in place all new development in that area would have the potential to connect how new Issaquah for thermal energy and as Minnesota and early adopter in the US. So it's actually been around for at least over twenty years. Most of the applications are in northern Europe Netherlands Scandinavia where? There's over a thousand sites there are not A lot of these in the US so this is absolutely a place for Minnesota to lead that combination of are forward thinking policy on clean energy. The city of Minneapolis has made huge commitments to decarbonised the city and are looking at ways to get away from natural gas as their biggest carbon contributor so this technology is going to be A little bit newer for the country and a little bit newer for Minnesota.

Why Are Macadamia Nuts So Expensive?
"First things first macadamia nuts are not actually ups. Yes I know it's ridiculous. It's right there in the main for goodness sake but much like Brazil L.. Nuts again what is it with. These misleading names. The Macadamia is in fact a seed and although they've become a signature staple of Hawaiian Agriculture Macadamia. His are actually native to Australia. We spoke with Glen Soko an economic development specialist with the Hawaii County Department of Research and development he explained leaned Macadamia. Nuts are originally from Australia but much of the early research breeding work quality development were done by the University of Hawaii on the island of Hawaii. These cultivars are suited for the Hawaii. Climate and do not produce the same high quality nut when grown in foreign conditions cultivars is short for cultivated varieties and these are specific types of plants selected and cultivated by humans. In this case. The plant is a large bushy tree that starts producing macadamia nuts spy the time. It's about four or five years old. So how exactly did these Australia cultivars and up in Hawaii for that you can think. One William Purvis office. Who planted the first Macadamia tree on the Big Island in eighteen? Eighty one purpose didn't initially intend for the tree seeds to be a hit. He planted the trees as wind breaks as for the sugar cane fields. The plants were functional and also happens to be quite pretty but he didn't suspect they could bear such delectable and profitable. See it's about a decade later. One are Jordan planted some macadamia trees on Oahu. The trees that researchers think is the ancestor most of Hawaii's trees and the not quickly became a popular snack among businessmen who came to Hawaii to profit off of sugar plantations in the early nineteen hundreds. The Hawaiian Agricultural Experiment Station was established published to get new crops growing on islands since this newly established United States territory was relying almost exclusively on sugar following the collapse of the coffee market. In the nineteen twenties. The government offered a five year tax exemption on land that was used solely for Macadamia production. But most farmers were interested. That is until roasted it. BECA Damian that's started popping up in stores and consumers went wild demand finance went up and the number of trees planted for nut production more than doubled from nineteen eighteen thirty two to nineteen thirty. Eight sales slumped a bit after that. But by the Nineteen Fifties Hawaii was turning out macadamia goodies to stack fans throughout the world and major companies. Ladies were making a pretty penny off of them speaking of why are Macadamia so expensive while Macadamia is clearly have an interesting past. And they've tastes taste heavenly coated in thick layers of chocolate. Do they really merit they're often exorbitant price tag after all around twenty five dollars a pound. They're considered the most expensive have nuts in the world. So what's the deal. A bunch of factors go into the price but a lot of them. Come down to the fact that Macadamia can't be grown effectively. On the continental dental United States and shipping them in from Hawaii is costly and growing things in Hawaii is costly to begin with because it's a small archipelago that some three thousand miles title. That's nearly five thousand kilometers away from anything in two thousand. Eighteen Macadamia has made the news for a seventeen percent price. Increase which sacco attributed to Hawaii's fixed harvest acreage and a higher global demand. Furthermore Issaquah said it takes seven years for a Macadamia nut tree to produce a crop. Demand remains high and prices are up to a dollar twenty per pound despite this. There's tremendous pressure on the industry. The agricultural labor shortage continues and that's caused wages and benefit costs to increase invasive. Pests continue to affect the Orchard Health and production. The Hawaii land prices are so high. Hi Orchard Expansion is too costly and producers can't wait for seven years therefore the production acreage remained steady despite the increased demand for the nuts. Okay so that explains the cost but are they actually good for you. High fat foods used to be the most demonized of all kitchen staples basically because of a very effective and sort of insidious marketing campaign put out by the sugar industry but thanks to current research and slightly Leila systemic marketing hype such things as nuts oils and seeds are getting their due as healthy options. We also spoke with registered Dietitian than yell. Birger she said Macadamia nuts are high in monounsaturated fats. Low in net carbohydrates and a good source of copper manganese and thion monounsaturated unsaturated fatty acids have been shown to lower. LDL cholesterol levels. The bad kind especially when they're used in place of saturated fats and refined carbohydrates in one's diet it net carbs are important. Consider because it clues you in on how much fiber something contains in relation to the amount of total carbohydrates present. Having we're fiber is crucial to gut health copper assists with iron absorption and transport in the body while manganese and vitamin are central for carbohydrate metabolism.
