On the front pages


Again, the top stop of the day was Idaho’s struggle over gay marriage, and how the elimination of the same-sex marriage ban by the 9th Circuit Court was put on hold by Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy. the stories also told how word of Kennedy’s stay hit courthouses just as they opened for business in the morning, and the word arrived so close to the initial applications that one couple in Twin Falls County actually walked away with a marriage license before issuance stopped.

Here’s what public affairs news made the front page of newspapers in the Northwest today, excluding local crime, features and sports stories. (Newspaper names contracted with location)
