Washington State posed a health alert this month against eating too many fish from behind the famous Grand Coulee Dam. The reason: Dioxin contamination from upriver in British Columbia. Politicians representing coastal Washington are fuming over spending millions of dollars to upgrade sewage treatment plants along Puget Sound. The reason: The capitol of British Columbia, Victoria, is dumping its sewage into the cold blue waters of the sound untreated.

King training camps once were so quiet, you could hear the ice melt. In this British Columbia island city with the veddy British tastes, afternoon tea is still a tradition, and the annual visit of Los Angeles' ice hockey team made for far less conversation than, say, salmon spawning season. But that was before the arrival of Wayne Gretzky, whose Kingly presence stirred a tempest even in Victorian teapots.

Her Majesty the Queen apparently is a fan of the charming Fairmont Empress hotel in Victoria, Canada. Named after Queen Victoria, her great-great-grandmother and empress of India, Queen Elizabeth II has visited the regal British Columbia landmark six times during her nearly 60-year reign. In her honor, the hotel has a set of fine china created exclusively for use during royal visits. That exclusivity, however, is about to disappear. For three evenings, April 29 and 30, and May 1, commoners will be able to dine on the posh china in the Empress Room.

Alfons Heck, whose experiences as a member of the Hitler Youth organization in Nazi Germany were the basis of two memoirs and an HBO documentary, has died. He was 76. Heck died Tuesday of heart failure at Scripps Mercy Hospital in San Diego, according to his wife, June. In his books "A Child of Hitler: Germany in the Days When God Wore a Swastika" and "The Burden of Hitler's Legacy," Heck recounted his fascination with National Socialism from the time he entered Hitler Youth in 1938.

Attorneys for an Algerian accused in Seattle of smuggling explosives into the United States as part of a bombing conspiracy have asked to move his trial to another city, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reported. Media coverage of the arrest of Ahmed Ressam and other alleged bomb plotters has reduced the chances of obtaining a fair trial in Seattle, the attorneys wrote in a motion filed in federal court asking to shift the trial to San Francisco or Los Angeles.
