Friday Memo: Bear ‘reward’ … Summer’s here … Olympia beer poll

Bear rewarded with food: Well sort of.  A campground in North Cascades National Park is closed for at least a couple of weeks to discourage a bear that got what was described as “a substantial food reward” by breaking into a garbage can.

Beginning, ending and staying the same:

Plane from Seattle to Miami makes emergency landing:  An American Airlines flight from Seattle to Miami made an unscheduled stop in Denver when smoke filled the cockpit. Don’t think this was a 787. Yesterday, however, a United Airlines 787 from London to Houston also made an unscheduled stop in New Jersey because of a low engine oil indicator.

Beer making coming back to the old Olympia brewery? KING5 has a story saying a real estate broker is negotiating to remove a convenant that says no alcoholic beverages could be made at the old brewery, which opened in 1896 and closed in 2003. Did you drink Olympia beer? Vote in our poll.
