Recognizing their financial responsibility to district taxpayers, Everett school officials decided against the pricier squadron of aerial surveillance drones.
Why, oh why? Despite an eighth-inning rally, the Mariners lost Sunday's game and the weekend series, 2-1, to the Chicago Cubs. The Cubs, who have not won a National League pennant since 1945, can blame the Curse of the Billy Goat, after the team barred a bar owner's goat from the stadium that year because of its odor.
A similar but less-familiar curse hobbles Seattle. A grizzled M's fan, still angered by the trade of shortstop Omar Vizquel in 1993, cursed the team when the Mariner Moose spilled his beer.
Don't know much about history: On this day in 1980, "O Canada" was proclaimed the national anthem of Canada.
"O Canada" beat out Canadian progressive rock legend Rush's "Cygnus X-1 (Parts I and II)," because of its 28-minute length, But judges did give it points because it was easier to sing than "The Star-Spangled Banner."
