Your story about your daughter is heart wrenching. If you ever would like to connect, I would be happy to talk to you. Bill was my best friend of 19 years. I didn’t know him at your daughter’s age, but he had often told me stories about his struggles during the early years. My heart goes out to you both.Debbie – ehri.debbie@gmail.com

Comment on Southwest Seattle Historical Society to meet with new owners of ‘stone house’ in hopes of moving it by HS https://westseattleblog.com/2019/02/southwest-seattle-historical-society-to-meet-with-new-owners-of-stone-house-in-hopes-of-moving-it/#comment-2194529 Fri, 22 Feb 2019 03:29:07 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=942085#comment-2194529 Ditto that it would be a great addition to Lincoln Park. However, if there aren’t any other options people in the community, such as myself, would happily take it.

Comment on VIDEO: King County Parks Levy announcement at Steve Cox Memorial Park by WSB https://westseattleblog.com/2019/02/happening-now-king-county-parks-levy-announcement-at-steve-cox-memorial-park/#comment-2194524 Fri, 22 Feb 2019 02:35:56 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=942048#comment-2194524 This is a COUNTY PARK levy. Some of the money from past levies goes to non-county facilities but what you mention are CITY parks, completely different (the city has its own park levy, separate from this). The nearest county parks are south of the city limits in White Center (including Steve Cox, where the announcement was made).

Bus took the Dearborn exit but did not stop at Madison, which has a RR marker at the stop.

Comment on WEST SEATTLE LIGHT RAIL: Your next chance to comment starts now as ‘scoping’ period begins, with visualizations by KATHRYN M VITELLI https://westseattleblog.com/2019/02/west-seattle-light-rail-your-next-chance-to-comment-starts-now-as-scoping-period-begins-with-visualizations/#comment-2194518 Fri, 22 Feb 2019 02:14:04 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=941616#comment-2194518 Please tunnel in West Seattle to preserve our beautiful area. The station and parking could be at the golf course with the tunnel starting there. I know it will cost extra but in the long term it will be worth it.

Comment on VIDEO: King County Parks Levy announcement at Steve Cox Memorial Park by TJ https://westseattleblog.com/2019/02/happening-now-king-county-parks-levy-announcement-at-steve-cox-memorial-park/#comment-2194517 Fri, 22 Feb 2019 02:06:36 +0000 https://westseattleblog.com/?p=942048#comment-2194517 The parks have been maintained poorly, and they want double now? Every levy seems to be renewed at a much higher rate than inflation. Is this all just a money grab because of a good economy? How about the automatic sprinkler systems at some of the parks? Riverview and Alki are 2 that I know were watered twice a day with the sprinkler systems over 30 years ago when per capita the parks were getting less money than now. They don’t operate them anymore. I have asked and never received an answer.

It was about 25 minutes from Junction to Madison/3rd

Or as it been there for a while?
