Bellingham man reaches top of Mount Everest

BELLINGHAM -- A Bellingham man has reached the top of Mount Everest, achieving his quest to climb the highest peaks on seven continents.
The Bellingham Herald reported that Dave Mauro, 50, was part of a team of 21 people who reached the summit of Everest on Monday in Nepal, according to the International Mountain Guides.
