Wednesday Memo: Boeing-going poll … Bill Nye, dancing guy … Chainsaw vs. gun

Uh, oh, more Boeing jobs heading south: The company is sending even more engineering jobs to California. It had already announced in May that it was sending a bunch of them down there and had warned of more to go, but hey … Do you worry that Boeing is sending too many jobs out of state? Vote in our poll.

Bill Nye the Science Guy is going to be on “Dancing with the Stars.” Mr. Nye was a member of the local “Almost Live!” television comedy show and is a pop star of science. On “Dancing with the Stars,” can we keep him from analyzing the physics of the Paso Doble?

Running down grandma with a Jeep: A man in Kelso has been busted, accused of  hitting his 77-year-old grandmother with his Jeep Cherokee. When police arrived at the scene of the incident, they found the man pinching his grandmother’s nose to stop it from bleeding. Yes, he was arrested on suspicion of vehicular assault, obstructing police and for being high on booze, Mary Jane and prescription pills. Grandma suffered a broken nose, but it appears she’s going to be OK.

Native American remains found could be really, really old: Those in the know say a Native American skeleton found in August in Clallam County might be at least 200 years old, possibly older. In fact, a state physical anthropologist says the remains could even be thousands of years old. Whoa. The Peninsula Daily News has the story.

Man brandishing chainsaw shot dead: It happened Monday in Vaughn, Pierce County, northwest of Tacoma. The 19-year-old man reportedly made threats to cut up people, and waved the chainsaw at his father’s girlfriend. It’s believed the woman’s brother fired the shot that killed the man in what was described as a longstanding feud. The News Tribune has the story.
