So Stealthy, we didn't know they were here

Can we blame Bud Selig? Pointing to poor attendance figures at Everett's Comcast Arena, the Washington Stealth lacrosse team announced that it was moving north to Langley, B.C.

Pot-in-the-belly pigs: A Snohomish farmer is creating a new cut of pork by feeding his pigs the roots, stems and other parts of the marijuana plant left over from the production of medical marijuana. A butcher shop at the Pike Place Market sells the "pot pig" bacon for $17 a pound.
