    CLEARVIEW, Wash. - Many people in Snohomish County have seen enough of bikini baristas. About 100 people gathered at the Foursquare Church in Clearview Tuesday night for a town meeting to share stories about seeing near-nudity and sexual behavior. County Councilman Mike Cooper attended the meeting and said he plans to introduce legislation to have bikini coffee stands reclassified as adult entertainment.>>

EVERETT, Wash. - The owner of one racy espresso stand in Snohomish County says he'll have his baristas cover up their breasts rather than seek a license as an adult entertainment business.
     
Bill Wheeler, owner of Grab-n-Go Espresso, told The Everett Herald he was in the process of doing away with pasties even before the county council voted new regulations Wednesday on bikini barista stands.
     
The ordinance requires an adult entertainment license for stands where baristas wear pasties that don't cover the bottom half of their breasts or thongs that don't fully cover their rear ends.
     
Starting next month, employees and customers of such stands must be at least 18. Violators could be shut down as a public nuisance.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said. She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.
