  • Higher wages a surprising success for Seattle restaurant

    Menu prices are up 21 percent and you don't have to tip at Ivar's Salmon House on Seattle's Lake Union after the restaurant decided to institute the city's $15-an-hour minimum wage two years ahead of schedule.

    The owner of a farm where a teenager was killed on a Halloween-themed hayride last fall said he never would have allowed a vehicle with mechanical problems to haul people on the attraction. Peter Bolduc, owner of Harvest Hill Farms in Mechanic Falls, Maine, denied knowing about any mechanical problems with the Jeep that was hauling the hay wagon and said he'd used it as his personal farm vehicle. There's a measure of vindication that he was not charged, he said Friday, but that's tempered by the tragedy of 17-year-old Cassidy Charette's death.
