The UW freshman unearthed a 4,000- to 7,000-year-old spear, which archaeologists determined to be from the same era as the Husky football team’s last winning season.

Cheech and Chong
The pot-endorsing comedy duo hits Bellingham. We’ve got the munchies already. (Mount Baker Theatre, Feb 11)

Milton Bradley
The Mariners’ new outfielder shares a name with the board game maker. No word on whether Colonel Mustard will be the new third baseman.

Colton Harris-Moore

Suzanne Vega

J.B. Dickey
We’re counting on the Seattle Mystery Bookshop owner to solve the case of Pioneer Square’s disappearing bookstores.

David Newell

Chris Liddell
The former Microsoft CFO is now chief number cruncher at General Motors, whose insolvency he’ll hopefully control + alt + delete.
