UPDATE: Seattle Ferry Theft Raises Security Questions

SEATTLE (AP) - The man accused of taking a commercial ferry from the Seattle waterfront is due in court Monday afternoon as prosecutors prepare charges.
    
A spokesman for the King County prosecutor's office, Dan Donohoe, says they'll ask for high bail to hold Samuel Kenneth McDonough in jail.
    
The 33-year-old Preston man was booked Sunday for investigation of burglary, reckless endangerment and malicious mischief. He was arrested by a SWAT team that boarded a Victoria Clipper that drifted nearly seven hours in Elliott Bay.
    
Clipper Vacations CEO Darrell Bryan says barbed wire has already been strung over a fence the intruder apparently climbed. And he says the company also is talking with the Coast Guard and a maritime consultant to review its security and block any other would-be pirates.

    Army of firefighters takes on still-growing California fire

    SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (AP) - The fourth-largest wildfire in California history continues to grow and threaten thousands of homes despite armies of fire crews and fleets of bulldozers and aircraft. The blaze northwest of Los Angeles grew by 3,000 acres overnight and although Santa Ana winds eased on Friday, they are expected to return with a vengeance over the weekend. And the fire is so large that winds on one end may be gustier than those on the other side. The 11-day-old Thomas ...

    CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - An eighth planet has been found in a faraway solar system, matching our own in numbers. Even more amazing, machines and not humans made the discovery. NASA joined with Google on Thursday to announce the finding. This eighth planet orbits the star known as Kepler-90, 2,545 light-years away. Like Earth, this new planet is the third rock from its sun. But it's much closer to its sun and therefore a scorching 800 degrees Fahrenheit (427 Celsius)
