Tuesday Memo: Firefighter’s side of story … Wolf shot … Ferry fee on car tabs

Who was the victim here? One firefighter said he was a victim in the beating of a homeless man in Pioneer Square over the weekend. Witnesses and prosecutors say, hey, not so fast, pal. Seattle’s fire chief has apologized for the attack.

Wolf killed: A black female wolf was killed in Stevens County last month, and state wildlife agents want to find out who did it. The wolf, which had been shot, was wearing a radio collar and was being studied.

The price of car tabs could go up: Many vehicle owners would pay a $5 service fee to help pay for building a new state ferry based under a bill waiting for Gov. Jay Inslee’s signature. The fee is aimed at saving the state money by locking in a lower price from the shipbuilder. The Herald in Everett has the story.

Uh, oh … Speaking of ferries, a crew working on the state ferry Walla Walla accidentally drilled a hole through the boat’s hull. Measure twice, drill once!

What’s that sound? A cat survived a ride from Renton to Kent … under the hood of a car. KING5 has the story.

Seriously? A California man has been arrested near the Canadian border at Blaine, accused in a plot to join al-Quaida.
