It could be in a car, on a friend’s couch, in a homeless shelter, or even on the street. In Washington State alone there are more than 30,000 homeless children and for these kids getting their homework done is the least of their problems. Now a unique program out of Tacoma is trying to help those kids do better in school, one family at a time.</p> Mon, 02 Jun 2014 07:01:00 +0000 Taylor Winkel 14714 at http://klcc.org Oregon Women Come Out Strong In NIT With 90-63 Win http://klcc.org/post/oregon-women-come-out-strong-nit-90-63-win <p>The University of Oregon women's basketball team opened the first round of the National Invitational Tournament with a 27 point win Thursday night in Eugene.</p><p></p><p>The Stockton, CA-based University of the Pacific had a nice season in the West Coast Conference going 12 and 6.&nbsp; It was the exact opposite of the Ducks in the PAC-12.

It got off to a rocky start—from the temporary shut down on its first day to the recent errors in calculating tax credits. Even so, Washington’s technical problems pale in comparison to the federal website’s. We have two reports checking in on Washington’s health exchange. We’ll hear from a call center in Spokane. But first, we begin with KUOW’s Ruby de Luna in Seattle, who talked with some of the users of the website.</p><p></p><p></p> Thu, 14 Nov 2013 14:48:14 +0000 Jessica Robinson & Ruby de Luna 3040 at http://klcc.org Tracking Health Care Exchange From Consumer To Call Center
