34TH DISTRICT REPUBLICANS: Not in West Seattle, but one of their topics is whether to move their regular meetings to WS, since it’s the biggest community in the district (which also includes White Center, Vashon Island, Maury Island, and part of Burien) – the group has new leadership and is working to get out more community information. Tonight’s meeting, which also will include discussion of “finding out the important topics to individuals in our district who attend the meetings” and City Council races, is at 7 pm at Round Table Pizza in Burien. More info here. (15730 1st Ave. S.)

    I have been watching a nest like this gradually getting re-built over the past couple of weeks in the SSC Arboretum right at eye level on a path! We have not been able to ID the bird though. Thank you! So great to know.

Sorry, comment time is over.
