SEQUIM — Joshua W. Fox has been named a partner in the Platt Irwin Law Firm.

After practicing with an insurance defense firm in Omaha, Neb., for three years, Fox and his wife, Morgan Fox, moved to Port Angeles in 2011, when he was hired as an associate attorney at Platt Irwin.

New Coho lease

VICTORIA — The British Columbia Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has signed a three-year lease extension with Black Ball Ferry Line, operator of the MV Coho ferry between Port Angeles and Victoria, for its dock and terminal in Victoria's Inner Harbour.

Extending the lease to 2016 will allow the provincial ministry and Black Ball time to develop a long-term plan for the wharves, officials said.

The ministry said it will conduct an engineering assessment of the wharves used by the Coho — and the Victoria Clipper passenger ferry boats to Seattle — to determine their condition, remaining life­span and what repairs are needed.

This information will be used to develop a plan for these assets, based on the scope and cost of repairs.

The ministry took responsibility of the Belle­ville Street ferry terminal properties last Tuesday as part of the dissolution of the Provincial Capital Commission in a cost-cutting move.

Homebuying class

PORT ANGELES — The Washington State Housing Financing Commission will sponsor a free, five-hour down payment assistance and homebuying seminar at Clallam Transit, 830 W. Lauridsen Blvd.

The seminar is from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 12.

Targeted at moderate- to low-income buyers, the class will allow attendees to acquire a certificate, making them eligible through the commission for down payment assistance.

Admission is free, but RSVP to Sandra Fangen at Crystal Properties at 360-457-2838.
