Tonight’s highlights from the WSB West Seattle Events calendar page:

SOUTHWEST HEALTHY YOUTH PARTNERSHIP: As noted in a much-discussed WSB report last week, this group will talk about neighborhood concerns regarding the plan for a state liquor store to move into the side of Westwood Village closest to Southwest Athletic Complex. SWHYP’s fight against underage drinking also will get a big showcase this Friday night at the West Seattle High School-Chief Sealth High School football game, when coordinator Renae Gaines says the players’ helmets all will display red ribbons. Plus – can you help the SWHYP? Here are ways to pitch in. Meeting’s at Madison Middle School (map), 6 pm.

WEST SEATTLE CRIME PREVENTION COUNCIL: Get the latest crime-trend toplines directly from Southwest Precinct leadership; ask questions, voice concerns, and/or just listen to what’s being done to make the peninsula safer. 7 pm, Southwest Precinct (parking lot’s on Webster just west of Delridge, meeting room entrance is right off the parking lot).

  1. Why waste your time.
    I attended the last one.
    I asked about a specific incident that the SPD was aware of.
    The officer dodged my question, presented hearsay as “fact”, then said my question was taking up to much of the meeting’s limited time and that he would meet me in the lobby after.
    The meeting then adjourned 15 minutes early and SPD had left the lobby.
    WSB covered the meeting and announced a 3 part coverage.
    Parts 1 and 2 showed up on WSB, but not #3.
    My questions about SPD non response to breaking and entering were never covered.
    I won’t bother to attend another of these meetings…pure PR and happy smiles of how SPD is successfully catching the bad guys and putting them out of business.
    In this process, I feel WSB continues to forge a clear distinction from a news organization.
