A crowd of 30 or so, including his wife and daughter, gathered at the finish line in Ketchikan to welcome Karl Kruger, who paddled under the name “Heart of Gold.” The Orcas Island man became the first person Monday to finish the 750-mile Race to Alaska on a paddleboard.

Two protesters scaled a fence, chained themselves to a crane and unfurled a banner Monday at the site of a liquefied natural gas storage facility under construction at the Port of Tacoma. Outside the gates a group of protesters largely comprising Puyallup Tribal members and local residents said they are trying to halt construction of the Puget Sound Energy facility, which they believe will pose a danger to the region. A spokesman said the men who locked themselves to the crane plan to remain there for the rest of the day.
A doorbell camera shows a thief stealing a package from the porch of a Puyallup home on 66th Avenue East on Nov. 9. Pierce County sheriff’s deputies are hoping to catch the man who they compared to the legendary Dr. Seuss character in a Facebook post.
