A 65-year-old veteran known to have angry outbursts walked away from the Washington Soldiers Home in Orting Monday and has not returned, officials said.
As Carrie Little walked the muddy soil of her Orting farm last week her black retriever Moose let out a series of barks for reasons only he knew. A group of nearby tom turkeys immediately gobbled back a reply. For Little, the interspecies exchange was just a symbol of the ties that bind – a choreography, Little calls it, between the animals, plants and humans that occupy the land she farms with her husband, Ken.
A King County Sheriff’s Deputy was among five people injured in a three-car crash near Orting tonight, according to the Washington State Patrol.
An 18-year-old from Orting was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle after a one-car crash early Sunday on state Route 162.
One person died early Sunday in a mobile-home fire just south of Orting, the Orting Valley Fire District reports.
