World War II marked a turning point for the city of Seattle. Boeing built thousands of B17 planes at a facility on the Duwamish River. At one point, 30,000 people reported for work there, assembling the planes that would help the allies defeat the Nazis. But with most of the young, white men overseas, Boeing was forced to expand its hiring criteria.

A subcommittee of the Oregon Board of Forestry has identified two proposals for new state logging rules to keep streams in Western Oregon cool enough for salmon.

One proposal increases no-cut buffer zones to 90 feet. The other offers approaches such as thinning or staggering harvests. Currently, trees must not be cut within 20 feet from streams.

Conservation and fishing groups say neither proposal is sufficient. They say no-cut buffers should be 100-feet deep.

A total lunar eclipse will share the stage with a so-called supermoon tonight. That combination hasn't been seen since 1982 and won't happen again until 2033. It's also only the 6th time since 1900 that an eclipse has coincided with a supermoon.

The total eclipse will last more than an hour, starting at 7:11 pm and ending at 8:23 pm. During those 72 minutes, the moon will turn a coppery red.

It will be the closest full moon of the year, and will look 14% bigger and 33% brighter than usual.
