And Tracy Simmons from Spokane FAVS dot com will talk with the supervisor of the United Methodist churches in eastern Washington about the church’s recent decision to continue with its tradition of not allowing gay Methodists to serve as clergy or to marry same sex partners.

A bill that would move Washington to full-time Daylight Saving Time is now headed to the state House floor. The legislation’s prime sponsor is Spokane Democratic Representative Marcus Riccelli.

Riccelli’s bill cleared the money committee in the House, the Appropriations Committee, late Thursday. It would move the state away from the “Spring Forward, Fall Back” regime that will take effect again just a week from now.
