A woman received multiple injuries when she fell an estimated 20 feet down into a sink hole created by melting snow at Mount Rainier National Park. Park officials say the unidentified woman fell about 6 p.m. Friday when the surface of the snow gave way in the Paradise parking lot near the Jackson Visitor Center. A small cavern had been formed beneath the surface by heat from an electrical transformer buried 20 feet below, according to park officials.
The woman fell at least 10 feet onto the transformer, and then onto the ground, “sustaining multiple traumatic injuries,” they said. Climbing rangers at Paradise lowered a rope into the hole, descended, and stabilized the woman. She was raised to the surface shortly before 8 p.m., and then airlifted by helicopter to an Olympia hospital. Park officials did not release the woman’s name, hometown, or her condition.

I have been interviewed hundreds of times, at times with a female counterpart. They always ask the female how they manage to combine children and a career? Dad’s are never asked this question. It must be assumed all we do is plant the seed. As a dad it is not our job to tell our children how to live, we live and make sure our kids are around to watch us do it and participate in it. We have the best job in the world. Happy Fathers Day
Take care, my friends.
Yet another idiotic school administration showing how really stupid our educators have become. PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Christan Morales said her son just wanted to honor American troops when he wore a hat to school decorated with an American flag and small plastic Army figures. But the school banned the hat because it ran afoul of the district’s zero-tolerance weapons policy. Why? The toy soldiers were carrying tiny guns. “His teacher called and said it wasn’t appropriate,” Morales said. Read more
ENCINITAS, Calif. — Authorities say a 55-year-old man went into cardiac arrest and died after being stung more than 500 times by bees as he cleared brush from a property in Southern California. The man was operating a backhoe in Encinitas, in San Diego County, when he was attacked by the bees late Wednesday morning. Encinitas Deputy Fire Chief Scott Henry says the man ran about 200 yards to an outhouse in an attempt to escape. Henry says firefighters found the man inside in full cardiac arrest. Firefighters began CPR and took the man to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. It wasn’t immediately clear if the toxins from the bee stings caused the man to go into cardiac arrest. His name and an official cause of death have not been released. via AP
For an angler with a love of America’s wild places fishing in these type of remote waters promises epic adventure and a stockpile of stories for you and your family. When Meriwether Lewis and William Clark began their expedition to explore the Western part of the continent, they commissioned Private Silas Goodrich to be their fisherman. It was Goodrich’s job every night to wet a line in the river and see what he could bring home. His assignment was partly for food, partly for scientific research,1 but mainly because Lewis, Clark, and Goodrich all loved to fish. Read more
SANDY — Sandy police are searching in the foothills around the Bell Canyon trail for a man who stabbed a hiker on the trail with a makeshift spear and then ran off.

MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — Authorities believe a mountain lion is responsible for the killing of sheep at a U.S. Department of Agriculture research center south of Mandan. Phil Mastrangelo (muh-STRAN’-juh-low) with U.S. Wildlife Services says the killings began about two weeks ago and at least eight sheep are dead. Authorities are continuing to monitor the area, including using cameras. Mastrangelo says the sheep are part of a research flock kept in an enclosure. Officials are researching using sheep to combat the weed leafy spurge. Mastrangelo says officials have ruled out coyotes as the predator because the sheep were taken down by the back of the neck, which is consistent with how mountain lions attack their prey. The center is about four miles southwest of Mandan, along the Heart River.
