This week's Oregon, Idaho and Washington Public Affairs Digests are out, for a big week in politics in at least two of the states. We include a rundown of the early post-primary campaigning moves in Oregon and Idaho, and a look at Washington politics with the entry in the Senate race of Republican Dino Rossi - one week ahead of candidate filings.

There are also pieces about the retirement of Ken Griffey, Jr., the possible move of the city of Vancouver into what used to be a newspaper office building. In Oregon, there were key developments in the state's Independent Party and in biofuels and other green business expansions.

As a reminder: We're now publishing weekly editions of the Public Affairs Digests - for Idaho, Washington and Oregon - moving from a monthly to a weekly rundown of what's happening. And we're taking it all-electronic: The print edition will be moving to e-mail.

That means we can include more information, and get it out a lot faster: The weekly Digests will be in your in-box first thing Monday morning. If you subscribe, of course: That's $59 a year, for 50 issues and the yearbook. Yes, including the yearbook. The Idaho Yearbook, which we published for years up to 2002, will return early in 2011 - in printed book form - and Digest subscribers get it for free with their subscription.
