“Argo” took the Best Picture Oscar on Sunday night, but the really big story happened Saturday, when “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2” was named the worst picture of 2012 by the Razzies.

Got milk: People in China, the world’s most populous nation, are developing a taste for milk, and that’s excellent news for Snohomish County dairy farmers.
