Trump, California closer on renewable energy

WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) — As President Trump travels to fundraisers in California, White House officials said at least when it comes to renewable energy — the president and California may be more in agreement than most might believe.

The Deputy Secretary of Energy Dan Brouillette said the Trump administration is working closely with the state. Brouillette’s energy department labs are working hard to develop the energy solutions of the future.

“We help develop technology like battery storage, which is very important to the renewable energy industry,” he said.

Double trouble: Seahawks prepare for 2-QB Saints

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Drew Brees is a quarterback you game plan for. Almost always. He has played 281 NFL games in his career and missed only three, only one of those because of injury.
