Local robotics team prove Girl Scouts go beyond cookies

Local robotics team prove Girl Scouts go beyond cookies

For most, the Girl Scouts are associated with one thing- cookies. However in addition to selling cookies, many Girl Scouts are dedicating hours of their time to something else- engineering.

 

Six girls make up the Rambunctious Robot Dancers, a local Girl Scouts robotics team whose members spend several hours each week programming an autonomous robot for FIRST Lego League (FLL) competitions.

 

Four transients arrested for South Hill murder

Spokane Major Crimes detectives have arrested four transients in connection with a South Hill murder last weekend.

Wednesday night police arrested 24-year-old Isaiah Freeman, 34-year-old Christopher Hall, 29-year-old Ricky Cox and 49-year-old Richard Richardson. Police say all four were transients and all four were booked into the Spokane County Jail on first degree murder charges.

Police say a wealth of evidence, including a bloody shoe print on the victim's body, linked the four men to the murder of Damian Stewart, 33, who was found dead inside his home Sunday. Police say the group strangled Stewart with his own jewelry and then stole the few valuables he had.

Major crimes detectives credit alert neighbors with providing them with descriptions of the men they saw leaving Stewart's apartment after a loud argument.

?From that we were able to track down someone who had visited there, who gave us other information that allowed us to develop a couple of persons of interest,? Spokane Police Lieutenant Steve Wohl said.

South Hill murder victim identified

The Spokane County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the victim of a homicide on Spokane's lower South Hill.�

Damien L. Stewart, 33, was found dead in his home at 5th and Hatch on January 25.�

According to the Medical Examiner's Office, Stewart was strangled to death but was also beaten and cut with a knife.

When detectives showed up at Stewart's apartment Sunday neighbors told investigators this murder might be drug related, however the people closest to him say he wasn't a drug dealer.

?I definitely know it wasn't a drug rip he was a drug user, but he did not sell drugs,? neighbor Lorena Perot said.

Fellow tenants Lorena and Michael Perot know the inside of Stewart's apartment is trashed. Every nook and cranny has been turned out in what appears to be a search for the few valuables Stewart had.

?He did not have much so whoever did it I think it was more like you said a burglary of his kindness of letting people in and they took advantage of that,? Perot said.

Group Health changes name to Group Hawks

Group Health changes name to Group Hawks

Group Health announced Wednesday that it is changing its corporate name to Group Hawks to show support for the Seattle Seahawks as they prepare to battle the Patriots in the Super Bowl. The name change was announced Wednesday, and will continue through Sunday’s big game.

 

“Patients still can find the quality and affordable healthcare they’ve always experienced at Group Health, but at Group Hawks they’ll also find plenty of Seahawks fever,” said Scott Armstrong, Group Hawks CEO. “And Seahawks fever is a condition we have tested, and know from our evidence-based medicine approach, can have very positive patient outcomes.”

 

Medical experts at Group Hawks say these are the Seahawks fever symptoms to watch for:

  • Green and blue face paint
  • Irresistible urge to have the #12 prominently tattooed on limbs, face or other obvious body parts
  • A need to wear feathers
  • Sudden urges to yell “Go Hawks!”
