Better pull on those oars: A project to replace expansion joints on the bridges over Steamboat, Union and Ebey sloughs will reduce I-5 to one lane on nights and some weekend days beginning Monday.

Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1914, the nation’s first electric traffic light was installed at an intersection in Cleveland.

Fallen idol: David Cassidy, the teen heartthrob on “The Partridge Family” in the early 1970s, has fallen on hard times and is auctioning off his Florida mansion and most of its contents.
