LOST ROCKING CHAIR: Keepsake given away by mistake

That simple rocking chair has huge sentimental value – but it got a new home by mistake this past weekend. Erik says his neighbor is hoping to get it back:

My neighbor had her garage cleaned up this weekend and her daughter’s blue rocking chair was mistakenly given away (Admiral neighborhood). If you were given the chair or know someone who was could you reach out to my neighbor Lauren at 206-271-5484, it’s a very sentimental piece they’d love to get back. Thanks in advance for anyone who might be able to help.

(Blooming madrone we photographed recently at Lincoln Park)

Here’s what’s happening on this first day of May, mostly from the WSB West Seattle Event Calendar:

ROAD-WORK ALERTS: Here’s what SDOT has planned for today:

Between 7 AM to 5 PM, we’re updating curb ramps at 16th Ave SW and SW Barton St in Highland Park. We will be working from the parking lanes, but people driving in the area can expect minor delays.

Additionally, between 7 AM to 5 PM, we’ll be installing traffic signs on southbound SR 99 between S Atlantic S and S Spokane St. During this work, we’ll need to reduce the two travel lanes to a single lane. People driving southbound on SR 99 may experience delays.

Between 7 AM to 3:30 PM, we’ll be installing speed bump markings at 12th Avenue SW and SW Kenyon St. We expect minimal traffic impacts and people driving will be able to continue around the work zone in both directions.

In South Park, the intersection of S Chicago St and 5th Ave S will be closed from 6 AM to 4 PM for upgrading the main water line under the street. This work is part of the South Park Drainage and Roadway Partnership, which is a project we are working together on with Seattle Public Utilities to improve chronic flooding and drainage issues in South Park.
