The amended plan calls for four breeding pairs in Eastern Washington, four each in the North and South Cascades, and 3 more pairs anywhere in the state. If more are found, the plan calls for stepping up management actions, like moving wolves around or shooting animals who prey on cattle.</p> Mon, 05 Dec 2011 19:51:15 +0000 April Baer 3356 at http://www.kplu.org Occupy Portland Protesters Gather In Downtown Portland http://www.kplu.org/post/occupy-portland-protesters-gather-downtown-portland <p>PORTLAND - Protesters gathered Thursday in downtown Portland for a demonstration in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement.

More than anything I just want to get my voice out there, that that&#39;s what I think. What we&#39;re doing isn&#39;t working.&quot;</p> Thu, 06 Oct 2011 22:45:08 +0000 April Baer 2837 at http://www.kplu.org Washington State Patrol chasing car license violators http://www.kplu.org/post/washington-state-patrol-chasing-car-license-violators <p>The Washington State Patrol has revived a unit of officers to pursue a distinct class of lawbreakers: people living in the state who’ve retained license plates from Oregon or elsewhere.</p><p> Wed, 17 Nov 2010 09:49:24 +0000 April Baer 152 at http://www.kplu.org Washington State Patrol chasing car license violators
