By Jack Mayne The public was asked to be patient while the shooting of a machete wielding man by a Kent Police officer is thoroughly investigated by a multi-agency task force.

The Marine View Driver: Streetcar Information that You Desire
By Mike Smith Many have been wondering what happened to the Seattle Streetcars on that fateful day where they were pulled from service. I can tell you what I know. Or rather, what I have been told. I’d like to preface this report with the fact that the street cars are actually quite safe and seldom travel at more than 50% over their available speed. On all railroad vehicles there is a device called a deadman. Notice I did not say an individual, I said a device. A deadman is a feature of railcars in the event an operator dies or is otherwise ...

Quiet Des Moines Council enlivened by citizen upset with airport noise
[caption id="attachment_61118" align="aligncenter" width="490"] 'Redondo Rick' Johnson at the March 9, 2017 Des Moines City Council meeting.[/caption] By Jack Mayne A relatively quiet Des Moines City Council meeting last week was enlivened a bit when long-time resident and regular citizen commenter 'Redondo Rick' Johnson wondered why the city is silent on the potential of changes in landing and takeoff patterns and more noise from planes from Sea-Tac Airport. The Federal Aviation Administration is implementing “NextGen,” a new National Airspace System across the country in stages with completion targeted by 2025. “NextGen” changes the country’s air traffic control system from a radar-based system with radio ...
Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce CEO: Business – yes, it is Personal
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is a new regular column for South King Media, written by Seattle Southside Chamber of Commerce President/CEO Andrea Reay: By Andrea H. Reay The old colloquialism “Nothing personal, it’s just business” has long been used to describe the often “dog eat dog” world of our capitalist economy. However, nothing could be further from the truth. Did you watch the Super Bowl ads? With the average cost of a 30-second spot going for $5 million dollars, advertisers know they must go with what works to maximize their investment. So, what works in advertising these days? Well, it’s the same thing that ...
