Here are some of the top stories on columbian.com this week:

1. In-N-Out is coming to Ridgefield; Clark County lands popular fast-food joint before Portland

Clark County residents craving a cheeseburger animal style are in luck. California fast-food chain In-N-Out submitted an application earlier this month for a Ridgefield location.

The restaurant would be the first In-N-Out in Washington, according to planning documents submitted to the city of Ridgefield. The company plans to build near the under-construction Ridgefield Costco at Union Ridge Town Center on Pioneer Street, just west of Interstate 5.

2. Bodycam footage shows man pulled gun before being shot by Clark County sheriff’s deputies

Body camera footage released Thursday by the Clark County Sheriff’s Office captured a 53-year-old Brush Prairie man pulling a gun from his waistband moments before three deputies fatally shot him on Feb. 20.

The video compilation includes footage from five deputies’ cameras as they responded to 12521 N.E. 152nd Ave. The video came hours after the Vancouver Police Department, which is investigating the shooting as a part of the Southwest Washington Independent Investigation Team, released the identities of the deputies. Three of the deputies fired their guns, while two were witnesses, investigators said.

3. Facing nearly $20 million budget deficit, Evergreen Public Schools may cut 140 positions

Evergreen Public Schools leaders are proposing cutting 140 positions across the district to meet nearly $20 million in budget reductions for the 2024-2025 school year.

The initial draft of the budget reductions was shared and discussed in a board workshop Tuesday night, which was open to the public in person but not streamed online.

4. First Latter-Day Saints temple in Clark County will be built in Camas

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the location of a 43,000-square-foot, multistory temple to be built in Camas.

The temple will sit on a 15.11-acre site on the northwest corner of the intersection of Southeast Bybee Road and Southeast 20th Street, just inside the border of the city of Camas. However, the church is referring to the building as its “new Vancouver Washington Temple” on its website.

5. Residents in Hazel Dell mobile home park dealt losing hand after rent control bill dies in Washington Legislature

Several residents of a Hazel Dell senior mobile home park gambled that rent stabilization legislation would pass — and lost.

Their landlord at Meadow Verde had asked them to sign a lease agreement that included a discounted rent increase if they signed by Sunday. Some of the residents weren’t due to sign a new lease for almost a year.
