On October 6th, news spread of Kathy Lambert's racist attack mailer against her opponent Sarah Perry.(Image by Lambert campaign, photo courtesy of Kirkland Reporter) The King County Council could get a shakeup this election, and those odds went up last week as Republican incumbent Kathy Lambert lost her Seattle Times endorsement after sending out a racist mailer. The ad depicted her opponent, Sarah Perry, as a marionette doll controlled on puppet strings by County Councilmember Girmay Zahilay, the only Black member on County Council. Vice President Kamala Harris, Senator Bernie Sanders, and Seattle City Councilmember Kshama Sawant are also pictured at the puppet-master level.

In May 2020, police gathered in large numbers to ensure a Chinatown encampment was swept and cleared in rapid fashion.(Photo by Enrico Doan) Every major public sector union has cut a deal with the City of Seattle to implement the Mayor’s Covid vaccine mandate, but the Seattle Police Officers Guild (SPOG) is the odd one out. SPOG continues to fight the mandate, and its vaccination rate continues to lag.
In this video, we are continuing at "Point Defiance Park" in Tacoma Washington. This is a gorgeous park with many different attractions such as a Japanese Garden, Rose Garden, wildlife, and more. Here we are relaxing and exploring "Owen Beach", which is a beautiful part of the park. Here we had a nice strip of sand, views of the different islands over Puget Sound, and even Mount Rainer behind us. This was a stunning place to come for sunset, and we even saw a sea lion swimming around!

How about a salad heaped with quality meats, fresh ingredients, and homemade dressings? There is something fresh and delicious for everyone at the cozy Antique Sandwich Co. in Tacoma.
The bastion at Fort Nisqually, Tacoma, WAJan Ewen/eatdosee.com. There is an historical gem in Tacoma that is well worth an afternoon’s saunter. I hadn’t visited Fort Nisqually in Point Defiance Park for several years and I recently discovered that this “living history museum”, run by the Metro Parks of Tacoma, is more visitor-friendly than ever.
Continuing from the previous video, we are exploring the beautiful "Point Defiance Park" in Tacoma Washington. This park is one of the most beautiful public parks that I've visited in the entire country. We have already checked out the Japanese Garden, and now we are exploring the "Rose Garden" area. There were countless deer wandering around eating the grass which was great to see. The roses themselves were many different stunning colors. Check out the next video for more Tacoma!

Seattle came to play, overall they looked like the better team in a game where I expected it to be very even. It felt like the 49ers didn't have much of a true game plan prepared for when Trey Lance came in and a lot was ad-libbed and plays were extended because of Trey's mobility. I'm not sure if they'll give the reigns back to Garrapolo but having two QB's on the roster who have totally different playstyles is difficult and I believe If Lance is the future they should commit soon, but we'll see how they story plays out. #NFL #AmericanFootball #49ers #Seahawks Youtube: HallsWay Twitch: Hallonmars1
As the deadline for the statewide vaccination mandate looms, more than 350 sworn Seattle police officers have still not submitted proof of vaccination, according to stats released by the Seattle Police Department on Tuesday.

Sound Transit welcomes all to the newly extended "1 Line" at Northgate Station.(Credit: The Urbanist) At 4:51am Saturday morning, the Northgate Link extension officially opened to the public. Many riders were in attendance for the occasion rising to cheers, whistles, and claps as the 1 Line welcomed them aboard and visited its three new stations. Families, neighbors, and transit enthusiasts filled platforms, but the train cars generally had seating freely available, so it wasn’t packed by any means, not that you’d expect that Covid or not for such an early opening.
Since Salmon swim upstream, it is no surprise that Salmon Days has returned to Issaquah, WA even though COVID-19 is still ravaging the world. These strong, inspirational creatures have inspired the local community to persevere and find a way to bring strength and connection even when it is difficult. So Salmon are the perfect reason to have a festival, even if it were simply for the first time, rather than the annual upcoming event celebrating its 52nd year.
