An interesting mix of stories last week crept into the top five, including one about the former Olympia brewery sign and a man trying to rescue two dogs from a scalding hot spring. But neither topped a story about the Seattle Seahawks and holdout Kam Chancellor.
1. Dion Bailey is Seattle Seahawks’ answer to strong safety Kam Chancellor’s holdout: Not sure why this was our No. 1 story, but here it is.
2. Capital High alum suffers burns after trying to rescue dogs from scalding hot spring: Paden McCormick, a former Olympia resident and Capital High School graduate, is recovering at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle from burns suffered when he jumped into a scalding hot spring in Eastern Idaho to rescue his two dogs.
3. Tacoma couple charged with prostituting Lacey runaway: The girl ran away to Tacoma and met up with a man who promised he could “make her life better” and get her lots of money.
4. Prosecutor releases Olympia officer-involved shooting documents: Accounts from police officers, witnesses, victims and the investigators paint a picture of what happened early that morning, when Olympia police Officer Ryan Donald shot and injured theft suspects Andre Thompson and Bryson Chaplin on Cooper Point Road.
5. Old Olympia beer sign could see light of day: The golden sign is divided into four sections of intricately shaped sheet metal, weighing hundreds of pounds apiece and covered with rusty patches. All assembled, the entire sign would measure about 16 feet tall and 22 feet wide.
