What's your legislative coverage this year?

Question: Last year you ran an on-going section on the Legislature's session. Is there any plans for somethinglike that again? -- Roger Dormaier, Hartline, Wash.

Answer: I'm glad you asked! In fact, staff writer Richard Roesler is writing regularly in his web log, "Eye on Olympia." He finds odd, quirky sorts of news tidbits, in addition to writing short items about more substantive news as it occurs. Every Sunday during the session, the online column will be excerpted into print as part of a legislative news page.

Roesler's column is fun, informative reading and is updated frequently, so check back often. For example, did you know that there's a rock group in Manchester, England, named "Lisa Brown," and that the group made Spokane's own state Sen. Lisa Brown the band's "Lisa Brown of the Month?" Didn't think so. -- Ken Sands, managing editor of online and new media
