Get it while you can, if you can: Sure, 25 marijuana retail stores have licenses to sell their wares today, but only one is expected to open for business in Seattle. So, if you have a jones for a joint, a legal one that is, best of luck.

Dancing cow meets its maker: An Angus cow that got loose and caused some havoc last week in Mount Vernon — including tossing a police officer in the air and jumping on a patrol car — was shot dead to keep it from doing any more damage or hurting anyone.

Fireworks are dangerous: If you need to be reminded of this, read about the 20-year-old Seattle-area man who was hit in the eye by a mortar round and the 12-year-old boy who seriously injured his hand and lost a finger when a Roman candle he was holding exploded.

One fuselage at a time: The first of three Boeing 737 fuselages that were thrown from a train over the weekend has been pulled from the river’s edge. The photo of those big old things clinging to the bank is one of a kind.

Hot weather: Can’t get enough of this heat? It’s your lucky day. The high temp is expected to reach into the mid-80s. Have you noticed the nice breeze in the late afternoon? National Weather Service forecast
