Now that Congress is back in session there will be a lot to get done and that includes attempting to pass those 3 free trade agreements. Washington Congressman Doc Hastings says they are getting close.

HASTINGS: We think that we are getting very much closer to the free trade agreements. There is a procedural bill that passed the House yesterday. The Senate will act on that and when they act on that it’s my understanding that the President will send the free trade agreements to the House and of course we will back all three; I’ll support all three - Columbia, Panama and South Korea.

We’ve all heard of wild animals making their way into a town. Usually it’s a bear that is looking for food in garbage cans but a mountain lion in Boise? A sheriff's deputy shot and killed a mountain lion outside St. Alphonsus Regional Medical Center in the early morning hours yesterday. The hospital is on the east side of Boise and an official with Fish and Game said the animals behavior was unusual which could have made it dangerous. The mountain lion appeared to be a healthy two to three year old male and had been seen around town.

Now here’s today’s Washington Grange report.


That’s today’s Northwest Report. I’m Greg Martin on the Ag Information Network.
