Possible Ethics Violation In Olympia: A Washington state senator has filed a formal ethics complaint against one of the Northwest's leading solar power advocates. Republican Jim Honeyford accuses Mike Nelson of using his position at Washington State University to help a company he later went to work for. But as Olympia Correspondent Austin Jenkins reports, the solar-power advocate in the spotlight vehemently denies the charge.

Renting The Home You Used To Own: Being a real estate investor means researching prices and being savvy about the market, but it also means breaking the news to people that you now own their house. And foreclosures are expected to rise this year in the Puget Sound region, after two years of declines. That means more homeowners will be seeking to rent or move on after losing their house. In part two of our series on real estate, KUOW's Amy Radil has the story of one family who managed to stay in their home, now as renters.

Washington State Patrol Starts Hiring Blitz: The patrol just received approval to run the 101st academy class in agency history, starting in October, as the milestone 100th Trooper Basic Class finishes. That means Washington State Patrol needs to bring on 60 trooper cadets, and quickly. Ross talks with Trooper Pete Stock about what makes a great trooper.
