Does anyone know what happened on Oakton and Dunton last night around midnight? Dropping a friend at her place and driving north in Dunton approaching Oakton and there are four police squads all lit up, a heavily damaged sedan and a woman being questioned. Couldn't see another car or any property damage so can only assume the damage happened somewhere else and her final resting place was Oakton. She did not look injured. Can't find info anywhere.
How do I file a complaint or take some kind of action against Northwest Recovery? They towed our company truck for a third time this month and we had a parking pass hung on the rear view that stated the dates “12/18/19-1/1/20.” Their logic is that the parking pass only needs a “valid until” date...but that obviously was on there.

The group is made up of many members, from freshmen to super seniors, and with a variety of different majors, but one goal in common: to rock their audiences’ pants off with electric harmonies and robotically precise choreography. In celebration of their 9 ¾ year anniversary, the Huskie Hunks are excited to bring their a cappella jams to Cutting Hall! Featuring guest a cappella groups from near and far, it will be a musical night with no instruments, just voices, and many talented performers! Wondering who our special guest groups will be for this evening? Stay tuned as we release more info in the coming weeks! Scott Johnson
