Severe Weather Awareness Week

This week is Severe Weather Awareness Week. KCII will be highlighting the services and people who make it their job to keep us safe. We'll be airing special weather related news stories during our regular newscasts. We'll talk with local emergency officials and meteorologists from Weather Eye, and the National Weather Service. We'll also be participating in a statewide tornado drill on Wednesday, April 8th. During that time the KCII Severe Weather Action Team will conduct an emergency equipment test, and demonstrate how severe weather coverage works at the station.

Washington State Bank recently announced the retirement of Karen Murphy as its Internal Auditor. Murphy was with the bank for 20 years. Her duties included control reviews, account verifications, procedural reviews and adherence to bank policy and regulatory compliance. She also worked closely with the bank's external auditor and reported directly to the audit committee. WSB has yet to announce her replacement.
