Steadying themselves on the pitching, water-sloshed deck, two crewmen from the Polar Lady move a sorting table loaded with Opilio crab. In January and February crabbers fish for “Opies” or snow crabs—smaller cousins of king crabs—with 700-pound (315.5-kilogram) crab pots. Even as the boats battle 30-foot (9-meter) waves and heavy gales the crew must hoist, stack, move, and empty pots. The work is tedious, and crabbers always run the risk of being hit suddenly by a swinging or falling crab pot.   © Karen Ducey

Melody Estrella, 12, feeds milk to Eva, a one day old calf, three times a day at the Estrella Family Creamery in Montesano,Wash.  on November 4, 2010.  The Food and Drug Administration ordered the Estrella Family Creamery in Montesano,Wash.  to stop processing cheeses after it found listeria bacteria on some of the cheeses this year.  The family says they have made many renovations on the farm and the bacteria is only found on the soft cheese, not everything.  They believe they should be allowed to resume making cheese and sell the hard cheeses they have already made at the facility.  The creamery is one of Washington's most famous artisan cheesemakers.
