He says he is most looking forward to continued interaction with the people of Cllam County. Nichols will be in Forks Saturday marching in the Old fashion fourth of july grand parade.

Forks Police administrator Rick Barts is asking all resident not to set off fireworks this weekend. He says a fire in town could be a disaster – not only because it will burn fast – but because it will use up the town’s water supply.

The state Senate passed a $38.2 billion dollar biennial budget that makes much-needed investments in education, restores recession-era cuts to the safety net, and makes higher education more affordable.

The budget passed in the Senate, 38 to 10 and passed in the House 90 to 8. The budget will now head to the governor to be signed before the end of the fiscal year on Tuesday, June 30.
