Northwest Now examines issues that affect Wash. residents

Posted: August 19, 2016

On this edition of Northwest Now, airing tonight at 7:30 p.m., we’re getting out of the studio and going out into the field to take a closer look at the issues that affect all of us here in Western Washington.

Up first, we talk to gun owners about why they’re buying guns and practicing in the wake of a series of mass shootings. Then – victims of gun violence – an Issaquah couple wants to restrict access to guns and raise the standards for owning them.

Then, we turn to the state’s heroin epidemic – and our discussion with those involved in the Hoquiam area. Next – Alzheimer’s is one of this state’s leading causes of death – we talk to those dealing with the disease.

On a happier note, the Children’s Museum is instituting a new play time for special needs kids…The Washington State History museum is tasked with saving history – we’ll learn how they do it…And finally, a small-town journalist take on local government using the public records laws to keep us all informed.
