From partner site White Center Now: Annexation; Amanda Knox

Two links of interest to share from our partner site White Center Now:

ANNEXATION: Burien’s proposal to annex part of the White Center/North Highline area is one step closer to reality tonight after a preliminary approval recommendation from the King County Boundary Review Board, following a public hearing in Tukwila. Burien’s city manager noted during the hearing that Seattle, which might annex the rest of the area – or might not – didn’t send a representative to comment. Read detailed notes from the hearing, as it happened, here.

AMANDA KNOX: Some people are so interested in the case of the young woman from West Seattle who’s on trial for murder in Italy, they could tell you the entire story in intricate detail. If you, on the other hand, feel like you came into the story in the middle, you might be interested in this WCN analysis/opinion piece retracing the case.

    I just read that White Center received a federal loan of $11.2 mill to help build a business plaza or something like that. WC is making big strides, I know I used to live their and seen how bad it was. It has really got a lot better over the last five years and real estate is a bargain. It is a hard working ethnic neighborhood.

Sorry, comment time is over.
