Workers at the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, one of the city's two strike-hit newspapers, ended a 38-day strike by approving a new contract, but wrangling over who could return to work, and when, threatened resolution of the walkout at the Seattle Times. The P-I contract offers a smaller hourly wage increase than the guild had wanted but increases company contributions to health plans. The hang-up at the Times is over back-to-work provisions.

I went to my files and pulled out my copy of the 1937 Third Annual Compton Invitational Track and Field Meet and there it was, just as I remembered. . . . Pole Vault Assistant--Pete Rozelle. When a vaulter knocked the bar off, Rozelle put it back up. VINCE REEL Claremont As a former sportswriter with the Seattle Times, I am familiar with the selective memory difficulty that plagues the profession. I refer to your writers who have canonized Pete Rozelle as the patron saint of the NFL. Is this the same Pete Rozelle who did everything in his power to deny recognition to that "other" league, the AFL?

Seattle Mariners General Manager Jack Zduriencik appears to be in hot water — and for reasons that have little to with a promising season gone horribly wrong. Zduriencik is in trouble over apparent misstatements he made to team President Chuck Armstrong regarding minor league pitcher Josh Lueke , the key player the Mariners received in the July trade that sent Cliff Lee to Texas. Earlier this month the Seattle Times quoted ousted Mariners pitching coach Rick Adair , a former minor league instructor with the Rangers, as saying that he had made Zduriencik aware before the trade that Lueke had off-field problems, including a 2008 sexual assault case in which Lueke, according to court documents, repeatedly lied to police.

SEATTLE -- For the city of Seattle, Amazon.com has long been the 500-pound gorilla. But it isn't on fine display at the zoo, where the city can preen and show off the $48-billion-a-year company to visitors. Rather, the company is more like King Kong in the jungle, a powerful, largely invisible and vaguely threatening presence. Started in 1994 in the Seattle suburbs, the online retailer is one of the city's biggest downtown tenants, spread across a dozen buildings in the city's up-and-coming South Lake Union neighborhood.

ARLINGTON, Wash. - The Stillaguamish River and the Hazel Slide have been rivals for decades. The river eats away at the clay and sand hillside to the north of the snaking river. Weakened by the erosion, the hill's foot lacks the strength to fight the pull of gravity. Rain and logging add to the river's offense. In this deep-seated recess, landslides are inevitable. They send sediment surging into the river, deforming it for years until the cycle repeats. DOCUMENTS: Warnings about landslides in Snohomish County This ongoing battle exploded Saturday in a catastrophic geological event as a wall of mud, trees and rocks slammed into the river below, blocking the flow.
