Good morning! It is Friday, August 30. Here are the top stories to know while you start your day:

SPORTS: The Spokane Indians are close to beating their season attendance record. The goal is to pass the 200,000 mark. It’s never happened in the Indians’ 37 short-season history.

DEVELOPING: The issue of homelessness and crime is one that has dominated headlines across Washington in recent months, heightened with documentaries like ‘Seattle is Dying’ airing on the west side. Now, a new video, which debuted online Thursday, is shifting the spotlight to the east.

BUSINESS: Brain Freeze Creamery said it will soon reopen its Kendall Yards location, but permanently close its South Hill location amid a report the company owes several thousand dollars in unpaid taxes.

ROADWORK: Road work can dampen anyone’s day. Construction can lead to detours or a change in your morning commute. But when it’s in front of your house, that’s when it can start affecting your everyday life. That’s what one woman has been dealing with this summer while crews have been chip sealing the street she lives on.
