Sexual assault prevention education is part of the school curriculum

The upcoming school year is the deadline for every public school in the state to provide comprehensive sexual health education to all K-12 students.

One of the requirements set forth in state law includes education about the prevention of sexual violence.

“Making prevention possible is multi-year, multi-strategy. We typically do two hours of classes with each year of students, working in small groups with the students,” said Chris Johnson of King County Sexual Assault Resource Center.

Johnson leads sexual assault prevention education at Renton and says much of it focuses on affirmative consent, which for younger students is more about boundaries.

Inflation is costing families nearly $5,000 more

A new study indicates that inflation is costing the average American household $4,400 more this year alone.

The American Consumer Institute reports that energy prices are the main culprit, but also increased government spending leading to record inflation.

Low-income families are disproportionately affected by rising prices. Families earning less than $15,000 per year had to shell out nearly $1,000 more in 2022.

Several small fires break out within a quarter of a mile of each other

A busy morning for the Puget Sound Fire as crews work on multiple fires in the East Hill neighborhood.

Puget Sound Fire said the fires were within a quarter mile of each other and caused minor damage with no injuries. There was a car fire, two dumpster fires, a tire fire and one in a homeless encampment.

Dry conditions could have facilitated the spread of the flames.

Investigators are determining if the fires are related.

Boeing Dreamliner back for delivery

The FAA has confirmed that it will allow Boeing to resume deliveries of the 787 Dreamliner “in the coming days”.

Production issues have prevented deliveries for much of the past two years, leaving around 120 devices ‘parked’.

Federal regulators now say they’re happy with the changes Boeing has made.

The FAA and Boeing have come under intense scrutiny since two Boeing MAX planes crashed – killing 346 people – after the plane was initially certified.

The MAX was anchored around the world until it was finally recertified.
