So sunny and warm today that we’ve seen people out running, walking, bicycling everywhere around West Seattle. Great time to think about community involvement like this: Girls on the Run is recruiting coaches for spring 2015, and needs volunteers for the program at three West Seattle schools: WS Elementary, Alki Elementary, and Westside School (WSB sponsor). Here’s the announcement:

Girls on the Run of Puget Sound is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy, and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running. Empower 3rd-5th grade girls to celebrate their bodies, honor their voices, recognize their gifts, and activate their power to make healthy choices for years to come!

As a coach, you’ll work with 1-2 other coaches to guide a group of girls through an established, easy-to-follow curriculum that uses running games to teach healthy living lessons that develop the whole girl – her social, emotional and physical self. Together, you will explore issues like media awareness, nutrition, emotional health, positive communication, and community service. Help empower the next generation of women by volunteering to coach this spring! For more information, please visit http://girlsrun.org/get-involved/coach/ or contact Jen John, Program Manager, at jen@girlsrun.org or 206-528-2118.

11:27 AM: Nobody hurt, but some damage at The Shack coffee shop in Luna Park, after a car crashed into the building this past hour. We’re heading over to find out more. Thanks to Eleanor for tweeting photos.

11:53 AM: Just back from The Shack. Owner tells us they’re still open for business – the damage wasn’t that serious – and also shared another photo from right after the crash, added above (note the T-shirt). Someone is already on the way to board up the damaged window.

12:17 PM: And their sense of humor was certainly left undamaged:

West Seattle weekend scene: Sweating for the Seahawks http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/west-seattle-weekend-scene-sweating-for-the-seahawks/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/west-seattle-weekend-scene-sweating-for-the-seahawks/#comments Sun, 25 Jan 2015 19:08:54 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=299215 From the “in case you wondered” file: Here’s what the Seahawks-spirit crowd, with cameras and sound equipment, was doing at Don Armeni Boat Ramp a little while ago. We checked it out after someone texted this photo, wondering if it was some kind of video shoot.

Turns out it was local Zumba instructor Jennifer Cepeda and friends, dancing in Hawks fan gear (and recording it on video, link to follow).

With warm-ish temps and dry weather, perfect morning.

West Seattle Crime Watch: Junction 7-11 store robbery http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/west-seattle-crime-watch-junction-7-11-store-robbed/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/west-seattle-crime-watch-junction-7-11-store-robbed/#comments Sun, 25 Jan 2015 17:33:06 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=299212 Thanks to the person who called to say they had heard about this from an employee at the Junction 7-11 (California/Erskine). We have since obtained some information from police: They confirm the store was held up about 1:30 am Saturday. The robber was described “as a white male about 25 years of age, wearing a dark blue or black puffy coat, and had a red scarf wrapped around his face.” He showed the clerk a handgun. Police called in a K-9 to help search but they didn’t find the robber. Checking Tweets by Beat, that’s the only robbery call in the Southwest Precinct coverage area, West Seattle and South Park, so far this weekend. (Side note: If you routinely check the tweets and haven’t noticed this, each confirmed incident generates two tweets – the second one, when a report is filed, so the time will be different. The first tweet describes what was reported – so the second one might classify the incident differently, depending on what’s confirmed. The telltale sign that two or more tweets are about the same case is the incident # in the tweet.)

South Seattle College ‘Gifts from the Earth’ fundraiser sets record http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/south-seattle-college-gifts-from-the-earth-fundraiser-sets-record/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/south-seattle-college-gifts-from-the-earth-fundraiser-sets-record/#comments Sun, 25 Jan 2015 07:41:24 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=299196

A student’s inspiring story keynoted tonight’s recordsetting “Gifts from the Earth” fundraiser at South Seattle College (WSB sponsor). Above, David Yama spoke to the sold-out crowd of 300. Here’s the full recap by SSC’s communications director Kevin Maloney:

South Seattle College announced tonight that the annual Gifts from the Earth fundraising event raised nearly $215,000, a new record in its 12-year history. Proceeds from the event benefit South’s Foundation in its mission to support South students and programs with scholarships, internships, emergency funding, tutoring, and more.

“Gifts from the Earth is an inspiring event where philanthropists and our sponsors come together for the common goal of supporting South students in their pursuit of a higher education and a fulfilling career,” South Seattle College President Gary Oertli said. “Their support has an enormous impact on our students’ ability to realize their dreams.”

South’s supporters started their night with a silent auction accompanied by appetizers and wines crafted by South’s Culinary Arts, Pastry and Baking Arts, and Northwest Wine Academy students and alumni. Next, the sold-out event moved to the Jerry M. Brockey Center, where guests enjoyed a multi-course meal created by 15 celebrity Northwest chefs (including South alumni). Students from the college’s culinary, wine and Hospitality Management B.A.S. programs helped the chefs prep, cook and serve.

A highlight of the evening came after dinner and a live auction, when South student David Michael Patrick Yama shared his story of emerging from poverty to succeeding in college with the help of a Foundation scholarship:

“I sought out a Foundation scholarship because I needed more money, but money was the smallest thing it gave me,” said Yama, who hopes to obtain a doctorate in biomedical engineering. “The greatest thing it gave to me was validation. Validation that I belong here, that I could succeed in school.”

Gifts from the Earth is made possible by the support of the following sponsors: Food Services of America (title sponsor), Boeing, Union Bank, Rebar and Associates, McGranahan Architects, GM Nameplate, QBSI, Interbay Food Company, WSECU, Vigor Industrial, The Gene Colin and Susan Janus Charitable Fund, Pedersen’s and Ferguson Construction.

(Watch SSC’s Facebook page for a photo gallery next week.) The college is headquartered on West Seattle’s Puget Ridge.

West Seattle brothers join in youth-led ‘State of the Planet’ event http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/west-seattle-brothers-join-in-youth-led-state-of-the-planet-event/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/west-seattle-brothers-join-in-youth-led-state-of-the-planet-event/#comments Sun, 25 Jan 2015 06:03:56 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=299186

Last year they sang downtown at a rally of concern about exploding oil trains; today, West Seattle brothers Aji and Adonis Piper were part of the State of the Planet” event at City Hall. Though City Councilmember Mike O’Brien was on hand, this event was led by young sustainability ambassadors, campaigning for two initiatives – first, the Billion-Tree Challenge:

According to the young advocates supported by 350 Seattle, if each person in our state planted 150 trees, that would add up to a billion new ones, creating, advocates say, a “carbon bank” to get through the rest of this century. The other proposal discussed today: Climate-change-warning labels on gas-pump nozzles in Seattle, something like this:

The Northern California city of Berkeley passed an ordinance last November approving that type of label; San Francisco is reported to be considering it. Those who attended today’s event heard from Rob Shirkey, who has been campaigning for the pump labels in Canada. There is no formal proposal pending in Seattle yet.

On the WSBeat, for West Seattle Blog

This edition of our periodic feature The WSBeat contains summaries written from reports on cases handled recently by Southwest Precinct officers – generally cases that (usually) have not already appeared here in breaking-news coverage or West Seattle Crime Watch reports, but that might at least answer the question “what WERE all those police doing on my block?” Or on the bridge, or the beach, or …

*Early on the morning of the 17th, a man heard a bang outside his home in the 2700 block of 46th SW. He contacted three males who were standing around his car. (The car door was open.) The three walked away and the victim followed them to a grocery on California Avenue. Officers found the three hiding in the rooftop parking lot. One, a 15-year-old who lives in another part of Seattle, was booked into the Youth Service Center for investigation of vehicle prowling. A second, a 12-year old who does live in West Seattle, was a missing person, and already had two juvenile warrants; one for burglary and one for theft. He was booked for these warrants and for investigation of vehicle prowling. The third, a 14-year-old from downtown, was also a missing person with two juvenile warrants – one for burglary, one for possession of a stolen vehicle. He was booked for the warrants and for investigation of vehicle prowling.

*On the morning of the 20th, a 14-year-old Kent resident with a history of disruptive and intimidating behavior was arrested and booked into the Youth Service Center after striking and threatening to “cut” an Admiral-area store employee who had told him to leave the premises.

Five more summaries ahead:

*An assault incident started when a citizen was bitten on the arm by a dog, described in the report as a German Shepherd, at the Alaska Junction on the afternoon of the 20th. The dog (and three others) were leashed and being walked by a man who appeared to be in his late twenties. When told of the bite, the man said he would put the dogs in his car and return to talk to the victim. He became angry that the victim was following on foot, so he turned and head-butted the victim in the nose before fleeing northbound on California Avenue. The man was described as white, with dark, short hair, unshaven, about 6 feet tall, thin, wearing a red knit cap, a dark bomber-style jacket and tight gray jeans.

*Around 10 a.m. on the 15th, officers contacted a naked woman who was wandering around the railroad tracks in the 1100 block of SW Klickitat Way. She had no ID and spoke only in fragmented “cuss words” to medics who responded to the scene. A “Jane Doe,” she was transported to Harborview for a mental evaluation.

*On the 16th, a man with an existing $250,000 warrant for domestic-violence assault added another notch to his record when he showed up at his estranged wife’s Alki-area home, in violation of a protection order. He was booked into King County Jail.

*Seeing that her ex was intoxicated, a North Admiral woman took his car keys for safekeeping on the evening of the 14th. The next day he accused her of stealing his cellphone and wallet as well. He claimed that he was a member of the Aryan Nations, used his hand against her head (in the shape of a gun) and threatened to blow her head off and said he’d have his son kill her son. He was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of DV harassment/threats.

*On the 17th, a Delridge resident called 911 to report her husband had been using cocaine for several days and was having a mental-health crisis. He had made her and the children leave the home because “it was going to blow up.” Meanwhile, he was calling 911 himself from their driveway, claiming that he was being chased by the Mexican Mafia. Officers found him sitting in the family car with a loaded gun on his lap. He was taken to the precinct for later transport to Harborview for a mental exam. While in the holding cell, he kicked the door repeatedly and screamed for help.

West Seattle music: Another ‘Tiny Desk Concerts’ contender http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/west-seattle-music-another-tiny-desk-concerts-contender/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/west-seattle-music-another-tiny-desk-concerts-contender/#comments Sat, 24 Jan 2015 22:40:44 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=298977 Two weeks ago, we featured video of the West Seattle band Woodland recording a song on the Water Taxi for a contest offering an appearance on NPR’s “Tiny Desk Concerts” series. Today, another West Seattle entry:

That’s Margaux LeSourd performing “The Piper.” Her husband Tom sent the link to her video of “The Piper,” explaining it’s her entry in the “Tiny Desk Concerts” contest and also her first video! As noted on the YT page for the clip, she explains:

I love the intimacy of Tiny Desk Concerts… as a musician it is something that both terrifies and touches me. That’s why I chose this song for the submission – I feel that in light of recent and ongoing national events, I have a responsibility to say something meaningful in this small, vulnerable space where people are truly listening.

Margaux teaches music in West Seattle and Georgetown. According to the NPR website, the winner will be announced on February 12th.

West Seattle traffic alert: Junction 47 tower-crane takedown day http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/west-seattle-traffic-alert-tower-crane-takedown-day/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/01/west-seattle-traffic-alert-tower-crane-takedown-day/#comments Sat, 24 Jan 2015 17:10:15 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=299141

9:10 AM: Thanks to Kyle for the tip: 42nd SW is closed from the main Jefferson Square entrance north to Alaska as the contractor for Equity Residential takes down the tower crane for its two-building Junction 47 project after almost 11 months. More to come.

10:03 AM: Photos added. The crew on scene told us they expect to finish sometime this afternoon – it’s gone a little faster than expected because of the size of the portable crane that was available to lift the sections over the eastern building and down onto 42nd so they can be trucked away.

This leaves two West Seattle projects with tower cranes right now – 4435 35th SW and 4745 40th SW. The next tower-crane installation will likely be at The Whittaker (4755 Fauntleroy Way SW), whose project team told us at the November groundbreaking that it will have two cranes, arriving sometime this quarter.
