Hi there. It’s Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2016, and I’m here with your helping of the Morning Scoop. (Subscribe here to get the Scoop in your inbox because you like me. Or you hate me. Either way.)
What You Need to Know
• In a scene we’ve watched play out over and over and over, an unarmed black man named Terence Crutcher was killed by police in Tulsa.
• Today in “Did he actually say that?” news: Donald Trump Jr.
• In just two weeks, Fresno PD has issued 90 citations for littering on the freeway.
• It’s Tuesday and here’s the worst local story you’ll read all week. I hope.
• Huge things are coming to Fresno’s Manchester Mall and by “huge” I mean “Chipotle.”

What You Want to Know
• I love this video of Jack Elwood, former locomotive engineer, talking about working the rails. Love it.
• Is it a risk to mention Vin Scully in Giants territory? Maybe. All I know about baseball is that people in California’s two most popular cities seem to hate each other’s teams a lot.
• You can win tickets to see the Glenn Miller Orchestra in Hanford but I can’t because life sucks sometimes.
• A bakery in Clovis is doing Really Good Stuff for people in the community.

What You Wish You Didn’t Know
• The estranged husband of Jim Carrey’s ex-girlfriend is filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the actor, so … all righty then.
• Lightning has the ability to rip a hole in asphalt so maybe never again go outside.
• And finally, let a hive of bees set up camp on your face or don’t. It’s your life, man.
I’ll beeee seeing you tomorrow, friends.
