For nearly 30 years, former Edmonds resident John Hurley has continually played a part in the life of his iconic yet battered orca sculpture at Brackett's Landing.

At 95 years old, he's still at it.

The sculpture was removed in early September after beach walkers discovered the dorsal fin had been damaged. It sat at the Edmonds parks department for a while, but is back with Hurley in Olympia, where he now lives.

Edmonds businessman Jeff Barnett, who own Salish Sea Brewing Co. and the Boathouse Taproom, and friend Kyle Hooser took it upon themselves and trucked the beloved art piece the 78 miles to Olympia.

It's back in Hurley's hands for repair.
