NEED TESTING? Our weekly reminder – the city-operated testing site in West Seattle – south side of the Southwest Athletic Complex parking lot (2801 SW Thistle) – is open Saturdays (as well as weekdays). Go here to choose an appointment time before you go.

HELPING: With so many more people in need this year because of the COVID crunch on our economy, if you can donate, every drive gains new importance. Tomorrow (Saturday), new kids’ coats and used men’s coats are being accepted at Hope Lutheran in The Junction.
