Front Porch: Resolution honors mudslide victims
U.S. Rep. Suzan DelBene, D-Wash., has introduced a resolution to honor and remember the victims and all affected by the Oso landslide on March 22. House Resolution 634 is co-sponsored by the rest of the Washington delegation in the House of Representatives.
“It’s been amazing and inspiring how the community has come together to help each other,” DelBene said in a news release.
“This resolution is a way for the House to express the entire nation’s support and affirm its commitment to doing everything possible to ensure that resources are available to help.”
In part, the resolution expresses condolences and extends thanks to “those who took quick action to provide aid and comfort to the victims of the landslide.”
Keep dogs safe: With warmer weather settling in, Mukilteo police remind dog owners to keep their pets safe.
Dogs should not be left in hot cars, even if the windows are cracked, officer Colt Davis said. Leaving a dog in a dangerous environment, such as a hot car, can lead to a criminal citation.
“It simply is not worth the risk of losing them to heat stroke,” Davis said.
“This is something that is entirely preventable. Please report distressed pets locked in cars immediately by calling 911.”
