Happy Monday! If you need a pick-me-up this morning, the forecast just might do it. It’s looking like we can expect blue skies and sunshine with highs in the mid to upper 80s every day this week, and no clouds in sight.

Here’s what you should know as you get your week started:

Garlic Festival shooting

A gunman opened fire at a Garlic Festival in northern California last night. The Gilroy Garlic Festival attracts 100,000 people every year with food, live music, cooking competitions. The suspect got in through a creek which boarders the parking lot, then used a tool to cut through the fence. He opened fire with a rifle, injuring at least eleven and killing three, including a 6-year-old boy. The gunman was then shot and killed. Police say they are still looking for a potential second suspect.

Dems get ready to debate again

Tomorrow, the second debate between the democratic 2020 presidential candidates will kick off in Detroit. This one, being hosted by CNN, will also be split up into two fields of ten. Taking the stage tomorrow are Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren and Beto O’Rourke. Wednesday’s group will include Joe Biden, Cory Booker and Washington Governor Jay Inslee.

Small town America comes together for one of its own

An eastern Washington farming community organized a group harvest this weekend, for one of their fellow farmers who could no longer work on his own crop. Larry Yockey was diagnosed with stage IV skin cancer earlier this year, leaving him unable to harvest his wheat field for the first time in nearly 50 years. So dozens of people hopped on their combines and bankouts yesterday to do the work he could not. In the process, they say they were honoring and thanking Yockey for all he has done for their community.
