Kenmore man dies in fall

   Kenmore resident Peter A. Morse, 55, died early Monday morning from injuries he suffered in a fall at Snoqualmie Pass. Morse fell 200 feet, striking several trees on Kendall Peak, just east of the Pacific Crest Trail. Bad weather prevented the use of a helicopter, forcing King County Search and Rescue teams to carry him three miles to the trailhead. He died enroute to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Cow, calf sculptures vandalized

   The steel cow and calf on the Woodinville-Redmond Road that have become popular and well-known public art were painted last Saturday night by unknown vandals. "It is a shame that [someone] would vandalize what everyone likes," creator and artist Gary Vig said. "I think the people who made the mess should come and clean it up and restore them to their original condition. But I am concerned that the finish will never be the same." To help, contact Paul Waterman, the owner of the field, at (425) 483-1655.
