Well, it finally happened. Our most popular story last week wasn’t a story at all, it was a list of weekly restaurant inspections, which have become increasingly popular with readers.
Here’s the list, based on reader traffic to our website:
1. Restaurant inspections for March 4: Never good: “Cook and owner failed to demonstrate basic food safety knowledge of the food code after being asked several important temperature requirements.”
2. Suspected driver identified, car located in Thurston County hit and run: Lt. Cliff Ziesemer said that the Sheriff’s Office received a tip Wednesday night from a Shelton Police Department reserve officer who overheard a conversation at a bar.
3. Man arrested in Olympia after throwing rocks at cars, taking off clothes: As the man swung around in circles, he used an appendage other than his fingers to pretend to shoot at cars. He saw the police car approaching and pulled up his pants.
4. Sheriff’s Office searches for driver on Johnson Point who hit bicyclist and left him unconscious: The force of the collision ripped Smith out of his shoes, which were attached to his bike pedals. The straps of his helmet broke, and his phone, watch and keys flew into the woods. The car left behind several parts.
5. Officials identify Lacey man crushed to death in Tacoma: Albert Wayne Devos was pinned between the two trucks. The driver could not figure out how to put the truck in reverse, so a witness climbed into the cab to move the vehicle away from Devos.
