    A 60-year-old Hoquiam man was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on Sunday after he struck a bear on U.S. Highway 101, according to the Washington State Patrol. A second motorcyclist also was injured as was a 21-year-old Aberdeen woman who was riding on the motorcycle that hit the bear. The bear, estimated at 200-250 pounds, died, according to Komonews.com. About 1:50 p.m. Sunday, the Hoquiam man and his passenger were southbound on U.S. Highway 101 on a Harley-Davidson when they struck a bear at milepost 143. Both riders were ejected. The second motorcyclist — a 64-year-old Hoquiam man...

    He has the wealth to do it, the base to do it and he is POTUS.....stars are aligned perfectly...a very rare opportunity... He should give members of Congress the chance to switch to his party..if they don't then back Republicans in their district in the primary that would promise do so if they win in the general election.. DO NOT run 3rd party candidates in the 2018 general election since that may allow a liberal to sneak in if the Republican/Conservative vote is split Target very red areas first that he did well in 2016.....get the fondation laid...get a least...

    Dear African-American protester, In the history of mankind, there have been many more white slaves than there have been black slaves. Your history is not unique, it is merely the latest chapter in man’s inhumanity to man. In America, there are thousands and thousands of white crosses all across the country. Those crosses represent the thousands and thousands of young, white boys who gave their lives so that your great-great grandfather could gain his freedom. Across Europe and the Pacific, there are more thousands and thousands of white crosses that represent the thousands and thousands of young, white boys who...

    Just about four years ago we published a post on 15 Manly Smells. The article received a ton of comments from folks who wanted to add their own favorite manly smells to the list, and the other day I found myself lost in enjoyment reading over them all again. So many of the additions were so great and evocative and so worthy of mention, and as the first post was one of my all-time favorites, I couldn’t resist compiling another edition. Enjoy and add your still unmentioned favorites to the comments!Black Coffee “My favorite scent, not just manly scent,...

    LOS ANGELES -- The Dodgers continued their historic 2017 run, using a five-run eighth inning to beat the White Sox, 6-1, on Tuesday night at Dodger Stadium, becoming the first team since the 2004 Cardinals to be 50 games over .500. The Dodgers, who have the best record in baseball at 84-34, reached 50 wins at home for the third straight season. They are on pace to win 117 games, one more than the Major League record shared by the 2001 Seattle Mariners and the 1906 Chicago Cubs.
  • Furbaby ALERT! There is Leptospirosis (Lepto) bacteria in the Texas Hill Country

    Our veterinarian told us that Leptospirosis (Lepto) is back in the area. He hasn't seen it in decades until a local dog died of it a couple of weeks ago. He gave our two slobber buckets a shot for it this morning and they'll be back for a booster in a month. He's very trustworthy about not prescribing more than is needed and was concerned about it. The bacteria grows in standing water so don't leave buckets or containers outside. We drained the fountain. Years ago, cattle would get it with water sitting in hoof prints on the ground. Hardly...

    Times-Picayune ^ | 8-15-2017 | Tom Masson
    Venice fishing guide Ron Price is a huge fan of redfish, speckled trout, flounder and black drum. What he doesn't care for, however, is a federal agency he equates with bottom-feeding hardhead catfish -- the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. In the awful months following the passage of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the corps, through eminent domain laws, took possession of a large swath of Price's property in Plaquemines Parish. It cost Price a fortune, and for a time, curtailed his successful charter operation. But now, 12 years later, business is booming and Price is expanding, with plans in place...

    Its days like today when I think America is hanging by a thread. And that thread is the courageous and good man Donald Trump. I knew the media would deliberately lie about Charlottesville, but I didn't think the liberal republicans would too. Clearly I overestimated them. These cowardly republicans still have never learned. Their fate is tied to trump. They go against him and they can forget getting the vote of people like me ever again. (Sigh) maybe in America 2.0 we will insist on a media that isn’t a bunch of leftists lying filth. Until then, stock up for...

    Been watching FOX and MSM the last couple of days. Getting tired of trying to tell them apart based on their guests' stances on political/Trump issues on everything current and past. Juan Williams seems to be empowered and out of ranting control talking over people and yelling. Him along with a couple of females and Sheppie are repulsively biased which is now festered and oozing out.

    <p>A Florida couple transporting a propane barbecue grill inside their SUV was injured Sunday after a woman lit a cigarette, sparking an explosion.

Both people inside the SUV sustained burns, but their injuries are not life-threatening, FOX35 Orlando reported.

The photos posted by police also show the windshield blown out, and dents all over the vehicle.</p>

    So I'm sitting here watching Fox News before going to bed and this sack of crap called Rick Leventhal begins his show giving voice to all the limp-wristed Trump-haters who are condemning President Trump for his "lackluster" condemnation of white supremacist groups and then he brings on some airhead teleprompter reader named Kristin Fisher who reads a statement from some supposed neo-Nazi group praising President Trump for not attacking them. What a sack of crap and crapette. I'm done with Fox News.

    GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Raiders weren’t going to take any chances, so coach Jack Del Rio only used two offensive starters in Saturday night’s preseason-opening 20-10 loss to the Cardinals. Not only did quarterback Derek Carr, receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree and running back Marshawn Lynch sit this one out, but Lynch sat on the bench during the national anthem.....

    R Kelly has denied canceled upcoming concerts scheduled as part of his After Party tour just weeks after doing the same over allegations of running a sex cult. The 50-year-old singer took to Instagram to share a short video to refute TMZ's Monday report that he had scuttled two shows in Louisiana, one in Dallas and another in Los Angeles. In the short clip he says: 'Yo what's up Mt. Pleasant, Michigan it's your boy Kells and I just want y'all to know that I'm five minutes away from your city, I'm ready to do my thing and I want...

    As the 4 p.m. non-waiver trade deadline grew closer Monday, baseball’s championship contenders pushed their final chess pieces into position. In the preceding days, the Rockies made a move for catcher Jonathan Lucroy, the Royals for Melky Cabrera, and the Yankees for Todd Frazier, Tommy Kahnle and Jaime Garcia. Entering the day, rumors swirled about Sonny Gray, Zach Britton and Yu Darvish, three top-notch pitchers generally regarded as the best available. Britton stayed. And at the very last moment, Darvish moved, about half an hour after Gray did. Here’s what went down, team by team.

    Life for British Phantom pilots was seldom boring. Whether it was training for near suicidal night attacks against the Soviet Navy, intercepting ‘Bear’s or performing low-level attacks.
