Missing Lake Stevens man wasn’t missing

LAKE STEVENS – An 87-year-old man who was reported missing Friday has been found.

Ralph Lammi was staying in the Everett area, and his disappearance had been a miscommunication with his wife, Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office operations bureau chief David Bales said.

He was reported missing because he never came home from a doctor’s appointment on Thursday, Bales said.

Everett: Man reported stabbed at apartment

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the stabbing of a 32-year-old man at an apartment in south Everett early Saturday.

Someone in the 10100 block of Holly Drive called Everett police about 6:30 a.m. to report seeing a man who appeared to have been stabbed several times, sheriff’s office operations bureau chief David Bales said.

Police came and found the man with several stab wounds in his upper body. Investigators determined the man had been attacked at an apartment in the 12400 block of Admiralty Way, Bales said.

The man was taken to an area hospital for treatment of his wounds.

The sheriff’s office has not arrested anyone in connection with the attack, Bales said.

Mukilteo: Everett man, 51, dies in car crash

A 51-year-old man died Saturday morning when the car he was driving crashed into another car on Highway 525, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Gregory Gerst, of Everett, reportedly drove past a stop sign and into the northbound lanes of the highway near Russell Way about 6:15 a.m. His car struck a car carrying a 32-year-old Mukilteo woman, who was not injured, the State Patrol said.

A medical condition may have caused Gerst to drive past the stop sign, the State Patrol said.

Mill Creek: Teen sues Everett School District

A teen is suing her school district and officials, saying her high school wind ensemble wasn’t allowed to play a version of “Ave Maria” at graduation because officials felt it was too religious for the school-sanctioned event.

In a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Seattle, Kathryn Nurre, 18, said the Everett School District and Superintendent Carol Whitehead violated her right to free speech in banning the group from playing the song.

Nurre played alto saxophone in an ensemble at Henry M. Jackson High School, where seniors select a favorite piece of music to play during commencement.

“Neither the district nor Dr. Whitehead have been served regarding the lawsuit so there is nothing to be said about it,” Everett School District spokeswoman Mary Waggoner said in an e-mail to a Seattle newspaper.

D.C.: U.S. Rep. Larsen visiting troops in Iraq

U.S. Rep. Rick Larsen, D-Wash., and four other members of Congress are in Iraq this weekend to visit troops and meet with Iraqi government leaders.

All five serve on the House Armed Services Committee. They left Friday and are scheduled to return Tuesday, according to Larsen’s spokeswoman, Kimberly Johnston.

Details of the group’s itinerary were not released for security reasons, Johnston said.

This is Larsen’s third trip to Iraq since the war began. He traveled there in 2002 and 2004.

House Majority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, organized this trip. He invited Larsen along with Rep. Jim Saxton, R-N.J., Jim Ryun, R-Kan., and Devin Nunes, R-Calif.
