Wawona Mast Video; Seahawk Mania! Clyde W. Ford Mysteries

KIRO-TV put together a package on the removal of Wawona's masts. You'll find the video online here. Scroll down and look for the headline "City boots historic ship from moorage." You will need a cable or DSL connection to see the video.

Think there's no connection between Seahawk mania here in Seattle and maritime heritage? Think again! Some folks working on Wawona's mast removal on Tuesday weighed in on the 'Hawks and the road to Super Bowl XL. Here's the article in Wednesday's P-I. [link]

Mystery novel fanatics should check out the new website for Bellingham writer Clyde W. Ford. He's published the second installment of his Charlie Noble Series, titled Precious Cargo. [link] The novels take place in the Northwest and have strong nautical settings. He'll be signing books at Seattle Mystery Bookshop on Jan. 28. Highly recommended.
