We've just started StoryCorps' series interviewing homeless people in Seattle. Their stories are amazing.
About a decade ago, Kris Kalberer left her job as a retail manager to raise her kids and care for her elderly mother. The family lived a comfortable life

Somber day of remembrance ahead for people still reeling from what happened a year ago.

Sunday marks one year since the Oso landslide. Highway 530 will shut down in the morning as people gather to commemorate the day.

Weird one. Interesting to know how 'natural causes' was arrived at.
 
It's unusual for a 40-year-old to die of natural causes; however, Antarctica is an unusual place.
A 40-year-old contract worker at the National Science Foundation's Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station died over the weekend, apparently of natural causes, the...

What an uplifting story. Human curiousity is awesome.
It started out as a joke. The students at Northwest Indian College on the Lummi Reservation near Bellingham were launching little rockets made from

Photographers light Delicate Arch in Arches National Park. Beautiful evening, with a new moon and Venus descending. Hiking back in the dark, I lost my way across a large expanse of slick rock and had to backtrack to find the right way down.

And that's bad news for polar bears.

Carbon dioxide emitted now makes its impact felt much sooner than scientists had believed, according to this research.
It's not just our children and grandchildren who need to worry about global warming. A new study indicates that it takes a mere 10 years for carbon dioxide e...

Introduction
This Alaska-born Washingtonian is interested in the intersection between digital news and the human spirit. I've been an editor-writer at newspapers across the country, then at msnbc.com and NBCNews.com, and now I'm director of digital media at KUOW. Key life events: finding a Zimbabwean to marry, having two global citizens as children, sailing across the Pacific in a 30-foot boat and doing a flip on a BMW R90, an escapade on an Anchorage-Key West trip that led me to meet the Kindling King of Northern California.
