Is Vancouver burning?

Crying in their poutine: After finishing the regular season with the National Hockey League’s best record and leading the championship series, 2-0, the Vancouver Canucks lost game seven to the Boston Bruins on Wednesday night in Vancouver, 4-0.

The loss got to Canuck fans, who responded with drunken rioting, overturning portable toilets and burning cars, or as it’s know in Boston: Saturday night.

His and hers public disclosure forms: A married couple are running for the school board in Monroe, campaigning against each other as well as the incumbent and a fourth candidate. Each wants to see the incumbent replaced but differs on the best approach as a school board member.

One says that in all Monroe schools, the toilet paper roll should go over the top, while the other believes that the paper should go under.

Dying with a smile: A study by the Harvard Men’s Health Watch says that men with cardiovascular disease shouldn’t worry that sexual activity might trigger a heart attack. But neither did sex provide much of a health benefit, increasing the heart rate less than the same amount of time spent on a treadmill.

But how much good can you get out of 30 seconds on a treadmill?

Wildlife officials said Tuesday, Aug. 10, 2021, that an emergency trap-and-truck operation of Idaho-bound endangered sockeye salmon, due to high water temperatures in the Snake and Salomon rivers, netted enough fish at the Granite Dam in eastern Washington, last month, to sustain an elaborate hatchery program.
