West Seattle Crime Watch update: Police search at Lincoln Park after woman reports man grabbed her http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/west-seattle-crime-watch-police-search-at-lincoln-park/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/west-seattle-crime-watch-police-search-at-lincoln-park/#comments Wed, 27 May 2015 03:15:48 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=311490 (UPDATED WEDNESDAY MORNING with police report details)

8:15 PM: If you’re noticing Seattle Police heading toward/into Lincoln Park, here’s what’s happening, according to what we’ve heard via scanner so far: Someone called 911 to report a man tried to grab her in the park. The description made public so far is a “Hispanic male, about 18 … white T-shirt, blue gym shorts.” (added) Also: “Thin, about 5’6″, no facial hair.” If you saw anything or have any information, call 911.

8:59 PM: A parkgoer says in comments that the victim told her it happened “on the trail going up from the beach near the pool.”

ADDED 9:34 AM WEDNESDAY: Just obtained from SPD, the narrative from the report, with the victim’s name redacted by SPD (replaced by us with “she” or “her” or “the victim”):

At 2017 hours I responded to a report of an assault with a sexual motive at … Lincoln Park. (The victim) had called 911 to report that an unknown male had grabbed her “butt” while she was walking through the park.

I made contact with (her) on the western side of the park which runs along the Puget Sound. The park has two levels. The lower western side of the park runs along the Puget Sound; the higher eastern side of the park is accessible through several sets of trails and staircases along the interior of the park.

(She) said that she comes to the park every other day to exercise. Tonight,(she) entered the park near the southernmost parking lot. She began running and walking along the trails on the higher, eastern side of the park. (She) said that she had been alternating between running and walking along the trail near the ridge that separates the lower half of the park from the upper.

While (she) was walking along the trail an unknown male approached her from behind and grabbed her “butt” with his right hand. (She) said that she had never seen the male before today. She described the male as approximately 18 years old, Hispanic or possibly Pacific Islander. She said that he was wearing a white t-shirt and dark gym shorts. (She) said the suspect was thin, around 5’6″ in height. He did not have any facial hair that she could recall.

After the suspect grabbed her butt, (she) recoiled away from him. (She) said the suspect then apologized, saying something like, “Sorry, I’ve only got a month to live, I just had to do that”. (She) felt that the suspect did not understand what he did was wrong. She said that the suspect did not leave the area when she asked him what he was doing. After (she) told the suspect that she was going to call the police, he reiterated his apology.

(She) then tried to get a passerby to lend her a cell phone. She stopped a couple who was walking through the area and asked to borrow their phone to call 911. The couple refused and told (her) that she should just leave the area, and that she should not travel alone. (She) said that during this time the suspect left the area but she did not see which direction he went. (She) then walked down the hill into the lower section of the park. She was able to find someone who let her use her cell phone to call 911.

(She) was not certain but said that she might have seen the suspect in the park before he assaulted her. (The victim) believed that he might have been sitting on a bench along the path. (She) believed that he may have been following her through the park but she was not certain.

Multiple units responded to the park and searched the area in vehicles and on foot. King County Metro was notified with a description of the suspect but no one was located. Because (she) did not see the suspect enter or exit the park, his mode of transportation was not known. I provided (her) with an SPD business card with my name, serial number, and this incident number. I asked her to contact the department if she recalled any other details about the incident. I also provided (her) with a victim’s brochure and talked with her about counseling services available.

Sun or no sun, outdoor swim/spraypark season starts Saturday http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/sun-or-no-sun-outdoor-swimspraypark-season-starts-saturday/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/sun-or-no-sun-outdoor-swimspraypark-season-starts-saturday/#comments Sat, 23 May 2015 04:51:25 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=311255

(Highland Park Spraypark, WSB file photo)
The forecast right now isn’t looking much like warm sunshine tomorrow – but it’s still the first day of the year for Colman Pool at Lincoln Park and for West Seattle’s only spraypark, at Highland Park. We mentioned this a week and a half ago in a roundup of start dates for Seattle Parks‘ outdoor water facilities in West Seattle; for a citywide perspective, check out this recent update on the city’s Parkways website. To get specific: Colman Pool’s first pre-season swim session starts at noon tomorrow (full schedule here); Highland Park Spraypark will be open daily starting tomorrow, 11 am-8 pm (per the citywide schedule that also includes wading pools, which don’t start opening until late June).

‘Free’ Seattle Parks programs on school-closure day Tuesday not free for all: Preschool families lose a day, no refund/makeup http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/free-seattle-parks-programs-on-school-closure-day-tuesday-not-free-for-all-preschool-families-lose-a-day-no-refundmakeup/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/free-seattle-parks-programs-on-school-closure-day-tuesday-not-free-for-all-preschool-families-lose-a-day-no-refundmakeup/#comments Fri, 15 May 2015 21:16:34 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=310429 By Tracy Record
West Seattle Blog editor

After the city announced Tuesday that Seattle Parks would offer “free” drop-in programs for school-age kids during Seattle Public Schools‘ teacher-walkout closure day next Tuesday, one group of Parks clients learned it will come with a cost to them:

Families with children in Parks-facilities preschools have been told their programs are canceled for that day, and that there will be no refund and no makeup date.

At first, Parks said everyone in programs affected by the May 19th changes would get a refund if their program was canceled that day. That’s what Parks’ communications manager David Takami told us in response to our inquiry on Tuesday; we published his response in the comment discussion following our story.

Then we were contacted by a reader who forwarded a letter they said was distributed to preschool families Tuesday evening. The letter, attributed to Parks manager Kelly Guy, told them the preschool programs were canceled for the day and that there would be no refund because it was considered an “emergency circumstance” – like, for example, a snow closure.

Takami confirmed that to WSB, saying he wasn’t aware of it until after his original response to our question. He said the Preschool Family Handbook provided to all participating families says:

“Preschool Program days cancelled by the Department for any reason will be refunded with the following exception: Programs closed due to weather or emergency circumstances will be credited to the customer account after the first two cancelled days. No credit will be provided for the first two cancelled days over the course of a school year.”

We consider the teacher walk-out as one of those “emergency circumstances.” … Fees for non-preschool programs that are cancelled will be refunded as previously stated.

We asked our tipster about the cost of the preschool program; at the numbers cited, one day means about $26 (prepaid) lost, plus whatever the affected family might have to pay for replacement child care.

Seattle Public Schools is making up the walkout date by extending the school year one day, to June 16th. This is one of many districts around the state where teachers are staging one-day walkouts to protest circumstances including the Legislature’s court-rebuked education-funding failure; here’s the Seattle Education Association FAQ explaining the walkout. (Teachers in the school district immediately south of here, Highline, are walking out on May 21.)

May 19th Seattle Public Schools closure: City-run community centers offering free programs for kids that day http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/may-19th-seattle-public-schools-closure-city-run-community-centers-offering-free-programs-for-kids-that-day/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/may-19th-seattle-public-schools-closure-city-run-community-centers-offering-free-programs-for-kids-that-day/#comments Tue, 12 May 2015 18:29:11 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=310028 ORIGINAL REPORT, 11:29 AM: As announced a week ago, Seattle Public Schools will close one week from today – Tuesday, May 19th – because of teachers’ one-day protest walkout. The city says today that it’s planning to help out families by offering free programs at its community centers, including all of its West Seattle/South Park centers. IMPORTANT: You need to register ASAP if interested. Here’s the announcement:

Seattle Parks and Recreation has announced it will open and staff drop-in activities at 21 designated community centers for Seattle Public School students from kindergarten to 8th grade in response to the May 19 teacher walk-out. The free program will operate from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 19 and will include supervised recreation activities, with an anticipated supervision ratio of 20 children to 1 adult leader.

“We’re willing to open Seattle’s community centers for parents needing daycare on May 19,” said Mayor Ed Murray. “Our programs for school-age kids offer educational and fun options during the summer and school vacations. It just makes sense for Parks for to step up during this exceptional circumstance.”

Due to space limitations, eligible students will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. All students must have a completed registration form. Registration forms can be obtained at open community centers, at the community centers the day of the drop-in service, or printed from http://www.seattle.gov/parks/. To hold a spot at a center, register in advance; please go online at class.seattle.gov/parks/Start/Start.asp. A registration form still must be brought to the community center on the 19th.

Seattle Parks and Recreation and the Associated Recreation Council will staff these sites. Parents are asked to drop off eligible children by 9:00 a.m. Spaces for parents who have pre-registered will not be held past 9:00 a.m. Once signed in, children will only be released to the authorized contacts listed on the registration form (identification is required).

Parents are asked to send a sack lunch with their child. Snacks will be provided to all students, and lunch will be provided to those students who are unable to bring their own.

The drop-in activities will be available at (editor’s note: we’re just listing the local centers, full citywide list here):

Alki, 5817 SW Stevens St.
Delridge, 4501 Delridge Way SW
Hiawatha, 2700 California Ave. SW
High Point, 6920 34th Ave. SW
South Park, 8319 8th Ave. S.

Parks’ Teen Centers [including Southwest, 2801 SW Thistle] will be open 2:30-8:00 p.m. in order to provide some daytime drop-in activities for teens.

ADDED: As noted in comments (including the comment we procured from Parks), this will mean some originally scheduled programming at the centers is in turn canceled that day.

Speaking of summer: See the schedules for Colman Pool, West Seattle wading pools http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/speaking-of-summer-see-the-schedules-for-colman-pool-west-seattle-wading-pools/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/speaking-of-summer-see-the-schedules-for-colman-pool-west-seattle-wading-pools/#comments Mon, 11 May 2015 21:52:20 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=309951 Not as summery today as it was over the weekend but we just checked the pool schedules because of this picture:

Jim Edwards sent the photo from Colman Pool on the Lincoln Park shore, where he says they’re “putting the finishing touches and doing the laser alignment on the pumps.” Less than two weeks now until Colman Pool’s first pre-season opening – May 23rd, which is also when Highland Park Spraypark opens. The wading pools open later (in West Seattle, June 27th for Lincoln Park, June 29th for Delridge, July 1st for E.C. Hughes and Hiawatha). Here’s the citywide wading-pool schedule (PDF, including the pools’ addresses); here’s the Colman Pool 2015 schedule (also a PDF).

West Seattle art: Fauntleroy/Alaska mini-park plaza taking shape, with Lezlie Jane’s art http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/west-seattle-art-fauntleroyalaska-mini-park-plaza-taking-shape-with-lezlie-janes-art/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/west-seattle-art-fauntleroyalaska-mini-park-plaza-taking-shape-with-lezlie-janes-art/#comments Mon, 11 May 2015 04:45:01 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=309898

With construction winding down at Spruce, the mixed-use project that filled what for years was “The Hole,” the sidewalk along 39th SW is open and that provides a view of the plaza on what is actually a bit of city parkland along the corner where Fauntleroy/Alaska/39th meet. At the heart of the plaza, art by Lezlie Jane, the West Seattle artist whose creations grace other spots including Constellation, Cormorant Cove, Weather Watch, and Dakota Place Parks.

We first reported her role in this project when the “public benefit” package for Spruce – required because it includes an “alley vacation” – went to the Seattle Design Commission in December 2012. You can see the concept for the “medallion” in our coverage of the meeting, and how it’s turning out, above, and below in our quick walkaround captured in a 15-second Instagram video clip (we focused on the wording around its perimeter, which includes an explanation of the bear, if you don’t know that part of West Seattle history on sight):


Our visit to the site this afternoon was inspired by the announcement of next Tuesday’s Junction Neighborhood Organization meeting – JuNO director René Commons mentioned it while saying the group will talk about the mini-park’s future, as well as other public/green space issues, at 6:30 pm Tuesday, at the Senior Center of West Seattle.

Pet owners, take note: Seattle Animal Shelter back to full patrol strength in local parks http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/pet-owners-take-note-seattle-animal-shelter-back-to-full-patrol-strength-in-local-parks/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/pet-owners-take-note-seattle-animal-shelter-back-to-full-patrol-strength-in-local-parks/#comments Thu, 07 May 2015 00:29:12 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=309268 Pet owners thinking about flouting the laws in city parks might want to think twice. Seattle Animal Shelter says it’s back up to full staff and so, as director Don Jordan puts it, “folks not only in Lincoln Park but around the city will see a more-concerted effort back in the parks again to (encourage) off-leash compliance and compliance with our licensing law.”

We contacted Jordan because of Jeannie‘s post in the WSB Forums, saying she’d heard from an officer who said Lincoln Park is now being patrolled. Concerns about off-leash dogs have been a frequent topic in the forums; we also published a report in March after hearing from a student researcher who’s been studying how off-leash, off-trail dogs have affected park restoration efforts.

Jordan says what’s happened is, “We’re finally back up to full staff” – 13 officers, after two years in which various staffing challenges dropped levels to barely half that, as low as seven officers. (If you’re cited for a violation, here’s the list of fees.)

Even more than off-leash violators, though, he wanted to talk about the importance of licensing. “It’s the right thing to do,” he said, pointing out, repeatedly, that licensing revenue supports SAS, and that it has other benefits. It’s estimated, Jordan said, that only about 30 percent of dogs and 15 percent of cats are licensed here (he cited a formula by the American Veterinary Medicine Association for that), “so we know there’s a great opportunity out there for pet owners to help us out.”

For one – if your pet is lost (a circumstance that touches our work via the WSB Lost/Found Pets page), a license provides a way for you to be found, once they’re found, without putting all your personal contact info on their tags.

Jordan says licenseholders also can contact SAS when they’re going on vacation, for example, to provide information on who’s watching your pet, in case it gets loose. Find out more about pet licensing here – and keep in mind there’s a $125 fine if you’re caught without it.

Back to the staffing; Jordan says SAS has “been able to recruit some really stellar staff members with a tremendous variety of backgrounds … vet technicians to wildlife experts to folks who have worked in large animal veterinary practices, a wide array of officers. Best crew I’ve had in the past 25 years I’ve been here.”

We asked if they’re working beats – is someone permanently assigned to Lincoln Park, for example? He would only say that they schedule in advance, and might have to “modify” when something comes up at the last minute – someone out sick, testifying in court, etc. They’re trying “to spread our efforts out, (especially) among the larger, heavily-used parks. Folks should know we’re here to help – call us if you have problems in the neighborhood. We’ll be deployed as much as we can with the leash law and licensing law this summer,” among other things. The SAS animal-control hotline is 206-386-7387 (that’s 386-PETS).

In case you wondered too: Fairmount Playfield’s new-but-not-open restroom building is almost ready http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/in-case-you-wondered-too-fairmount-playfields-new-but-not-open-restroom-building/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/05/in-case-you-wondered-too-fairmount-playfields-new-but-not-open-restroom-building/#comments Wed, 06 May 2015 02:55:19 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=309287

Jeff sent that photo on Monday, wondering why the new restroom building at Fairmount Playfield is still closed, though it’s looked complete for weeks. We took the question to Seattle Parks, whose Karen O’Connor replied:

We have a couple of punch list items for the Fairmount Playfield restroom building including locks and the installation of the electric meter. We are working with our shops and Seattle City Light to get this done. In the meantime, the temporary bathrooms will remain on site. … If the final inspection goes well – we anticipate the restrooms opening the weekend
of May 15.

The restroom replacement has been in the works for almost four years; the project finally got going last fall.

After volunteer work today, Morgan Junction Park pronounced ‘in great shape, ready for summer’ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/04/after-volunteer-work-today-morgan-junction-park-pronounced-in-great-shape-ready-for-summer/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/04/after-volunteer-work-today-morgan-junction-park-pronounced-in-great-shape-ready-for-summer/#comments Sun, 26 Apr 2015 05:10:41 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=308298

Thanks to Barry for the report and photo:

Friends of Morgan Junction Parks held their first event of the year on a beautiful Saturday afternoon at Morgan Junction Park. A nice turnout of volunteers performed pruning and transplanting projects, and weeding and mulching of all the plant beds. The park’s in great shape and ready for summer. Thanks to everyone who lent a hand from the Morgan Community Association, The Bridge and Beveridge Place Pub, and to the volunteers who work in all seasons to keep the park clean and vibrant.

The biggest event of the year at the park is just under two months away – the 10th annual Morgan Junction Community Festival, set for Saturday, June 20th.

Five years after last try, Seattle Parks smoking ban proposed again http://westseattleblog.com/2015/03/five-years-after-last-try-seattle-parks-smoking-ban-proposed-again/ http://westseattleblog.com/2015/03/five-years-after-last-try-seattle-parks-smoking-ban-proposed-again/#comments Thu, 19 Mar 2015 18:57:19 +0000 WSB http://westseattleblog.com/?p=304401 Five years ago, Seattle Parks‘ then-Superintendent Tim Gallagher decided to ban smoking in all city parks. But instead, as recommended by the Parks Board, the system ended up with a rule banning tobacco use “within 25 feet of other park patrons and in play areas, beaches, or playgrounds.” Today, there’s a new proposal to ban smoking in parks – here’s the memo spelling it out. Mayor Murray has already issued a statement saying he’s for it. Next step: The Parks Board will have a public hearing at 6:30 pm April 16th at Parks HQ downtown.

The long-planned Little Free Library is now in place in Morgan Junction Park, reports Cindi Barker from the Morgan Community Association: “Thanks go to Joe Paar, Morgan resident; Tyler Jamison of Village Builders; Seattle Parks staff; and the Friends of Morgan Junction Park for getting this installed!” As shown in the photo, you can see it right next to the information kiosk at the park, which is at 6413 California SW. If you’re not familiar with the concept, as explained on the official LFL site, it’s “a box full of books where anyone may stop by and pick up a book (or two) and bring back another book to share.”

Almost six months after he announced that Christopher Williams would end almost five years as acting superintendent, moving to the role of deputy superintendent, the mayor says he’ll announce his nominee tomorrow morning at 11. Williams, a former West Seattleite (Chief Sealth alum), took over after Tim Gallagher resigned in spring 2010.
