Washington high school football state champions will be crowned this weekend, but one Port Townsend native will be making history of her own.
A 63-year-old Port Townsend man was sentenced Monday to more than eight years in prison and 10 years of supervised release for raping a 6-year-old child while on a vacation in Canada.
Blustery weather swept through communities across western Washington on Thursday. Port Townsend saw wind gusts up to 60 miles per hour, the highest in the state. A High Wind Warning was issued in the Admiralty Inlet area from 10 a.m. Thursday to 10 a.m. Friday.
A man who abandoned an fatally overdosing man in a Port Townsend hospital parking lot has been sentenced on related federal charges.
One person was stabbed aboard a Port Townsend ferry and both suspects are now in custody, according to Washington State Patrol Trooper Chelsea Hodgson.
