Teams of two to five people race through Everett to compete in heart healthy challenges while collecting as many points as possible.

Registration and more information is available at: www.HeartChase

Gander at geese while you can: If you want to catch a glimpse of snow geese near Stanwood and around Fir Island in Skagit County, better hurry. These snowbirds fly north to their summer digs on Wrangel Island in the Arctic Ocean, and they're usually gone by mid-April.
