Broken bridge removal begins: The removal of the two cars that plunged into the  water along with pieces of the broken bridge has begun. State officials say a new bridge over the Skagit River north of Mount Vernon could open by mid-June. It’s a temporary bridge, but even so, that’s darn fast.  How many times have you driven over that bridge. Hundreds of times probably.

Burglary and a fire: A house in North Seattle was burglarized and then neighbors saw smoke coming from the home. Police still looking to see if there’s a connection.

Baby put in freezer: What a terrible story this is. A man in Pierce County put an infant in a freezer because the baby wouldn’t stop crying. The child was in the freezer for up to and hour. The baby is going to be OK. The man was arrested.

Memorial Day brings rain and the chance to remember the sacrifices made by the men and women who died serving in our armed forces. You’ll find a few of the events marking the occasion here. You might also want to read Hal Bernton’s story on the mother of a fallen Green Beret who turned a bed and breakfast into a refuge for grieving military families.

Sounders and Storm trounced: A trip to Los Angeles was not good for either team.The soccer boys lost to L.A. Galaxy 4-0 and the Storm lost to the L.S. Sparks 102-69. Ouch.
