Crews rescue kayakers, dog

Emergency crews rescued two kayakers and their dog after one capsized in stormy weather Monday morning on the rocky west side of Lake Pend Oreille.

But the signs were clear enough, according to Deputy Wade Nelson, the Spokane County sheriff’s search and rescue coordinator.
