Increased DUI Patrols on the Road for St. Patrick's Day Weekend
Police will increase DUI patrols all weekend as St. Patrick's Day, a day of revelry that often invoves alcohol, is celebrated this Sunday, March 17.
Renton police, the State Patrol and the King County and Snohomish County Sheriff's Offices are warning St. Patrick's Day revelers to avoid driving this weekend, promising increased DUI enforcement this weekend.
With St. Patrick's Day this Sunday, March 17, extra DUI patrols will take place all weekend.

Group advises 3+/2+ hybrid option for future i-405 HOT lanes
After their final meeting on the matter, the Interstate 405 Executive Advisory Group is recommending an option that would keep I405’s planned HOT lanes open for two-person carpools during off-peak hours, but would switch to three-plus during busy times.
The group’s recommendations will help determine the future of the 40-mile long express toll lane system, encompassing I-405 express toll lanes and state Route 167 HOT lanes.
An HOT lane is a multiple-occupancy lane that is open to single-car drivers for a price, like the lanes on SR167.
The Washington State Department of Transportation has plans to install at least one of the lanes on I-405, but the state law states that HOT lanes must be designed to maintain a minimum speed of 45 mph 90 percent of the time and that tolls must pay for theirope... more »

Group advises 3+/2+ hybrid option for future i-405 HOT lanes
After their final meeting on the matter, the Interstate 405 Executive Advisory Group is recommending an option that would keep I405’s planned HOT lanes open for two-person carpools during off-peak hours, but would switch to three-plus during busy times.
The group’s recommendations will help determine the future of the 40-mile long express toll lane system, encompassing I-405 express toll lanes and state Route 167 HOT lanes.
An HOT lane is a multiple-occupancy lane that is open to single-car drivers for a price, like the lanes on SR167.
The Washington State Department of Transportation has plans to install at least one of the lanes on I-405, but the state law states that HOT lanes must be designed to maintain a minimum speed of 45 mph 90 percent of the time and that tolls must pay for their operation.
Because of that, discussions over how to deal with the lanes have gotten complicated, with several advisory members, including Renton representative and City Council President Randy Corman, worried that the public will simply not accept a plan that changes the rules for HOT lanes to three-plus from the current two-plus option.
But WSDOT officials have concluded that a two-plus option is not viable because too many people would use the lane, making the speed requirement nearly impossible to meet, as well as not generate enough revenue.
According to Renton Public Works Administrator Gregg Zimmerman, the Nov. 7 meeting was “amiable,” and despite reaching a consensus, Zimmerman said all involved had an understanding that “not everyone is going to agree on every detail.”
In a presentation before the City Council on Nov. 4, Zimmerman detailed some of the city’s concerns, including that Renton city streets get a lot of use from people looking to avoid traffic on the highway, or that the I-405/state Route 167 connector project be funded at the front end of the phase two project to ensure traffic can continue to flow when the new lanes are added to the existing highway.
During the meeting, Corman also said he was concerned that a mandatory transponder would be necessary to use the HOT lanes, stopping the possibility of a spontaneous carpool from using the lanes.
Combined with what he sees as a potential loss to the public who are used to carpool lanes being two-plus, he said he had some concerns.
“It seemed like with a lot of the proposals, the incentive for carpool fades away,” he said.
In the end, Zimmerman said the advisory group went for a hybrid option, making the lanes three-plus during peak usage hours, but keeping them two-plus at other times.
Zimmerman also said funding recommendations were discussed. As of now, the state legislature has not passed a transportation funding package for this project and others.
Zimmerman said there were three options for funding being discussed. At the top level was a $1.1 billion package that would fully fund the entire 40-mile system without tools being needed to supplement the funding. In that case, tolls that are collected could be put to future improvements.
The next level of funding is a more traditional $960 million package that would require $215 million in tolling to complete the project.
Finally, the group discussed a $675 million option that would need $500 million to be collected from tolls.
Zimmerman said there was little support for the bottom option.
“It seemed to be pretty much between the high and the middle funding options,” he said of the discussions, adding that no consensus was reached on funding options.
The next step in the process is for the Washington State Transportation Commission to begin the rate-setting process, including tolls and exemptions, a meeting that will take place Nov. 20 in Kirkland.
After that, WSDOT will deliver a final report on funding and phasing to the legislature and governor by the end of the year.
The new lanes are expected to be opened by 2015.

State police out looking for texters behind the wheel this week

August 5, 2013 · 1:47 PM






The Washington State Patrol and local law enforcement agencies will have extra patrols from August 5-23, 2013 targeting distracted drivers, connected to the use of cellular phones or texting while driving in King County.
"Distracted driving is quickly becoming one of the main reasons for collisions on our roadways, please help us by keeping our roadways safer by staying alert while driving,” comments Lt. Michael Rupert of the Washington State Patrol.
“Just like drunk driving, distracted driving is illegal and threatens the safety of other drivers, pedestrians and cyclists,” stated Dr. Beth Ebel, of Harborview Medical Center.  “We see the consequences from thedistracti... more »

State police out looking for texters behind the wheel this week

August 5, 2013 · 1:47 PM






The Washington State Patrol and local law enforcement agencies will have extra patrols from August 5-23, 2013 targeting distracted drivers, connected to the use of cellular phones or texting while driving in King County.
"Distracted driving is quickly becoming one of the main reasons for collisions on our roadways, please help us by keeping our roadways safer by staying alert while driving,” comments Lt. Michael Rupert of the Washington State Patrol.
“Just like drunk driving, distracted driving is illegal and threatens the safety of other drivers, pedestrians and cyclists,” stated Dr. Beth Ebel, of Harborview Medical Center.  “We see the consequences from the distraction too often in the trauma center.”
Research by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission (WTSC) showed that from 2009-2012, distracted driver-involved collisions accounted for 20 percent of all traffic deaths in King County.  A study by the University of Utah confirmed that subjects who text while driving are six times more likely to be involved in a collision than a drunk driver.
Distracted driving goes beyond just cellular phone use or texting; reading, eating and adjusting music are other factors that can affect a driver’s ability to operate a vehicle in a safe manner.
In Washington State, drivers are prohibited from texting or talking on their cellular phones without the use of a hands-free device.  The fine for this violation is $124 but could be increased in the case of a traffic collision.  Teens with intermediate driver licenses or learner permits may not use a wireless device at all while driving, including hands free devices, unless they’re reporting an emergency.
This special patrol is funded by grants from the King County Emergency Medical Services and WTSC with the coordination of the King County Target Zero Task Force.___

Hi,

We asked the Port of Vancouver Commissioners to reject the proposal from oil giants Tesoro and Savage to build a massive oil export facility in Vancouver, WA. My mom and nine-year-old daughter hand-delivered your signatures — more than 14,000! — to the commissioners last week at the official hearing.

More than 90 people came to the hearing to oppose the project, including local Climate Parents members and their families. Unfortunately, the Port of Vancouver Commission sided with oil companies over our families and voted to approve the proposal.

Now, Tesoro and Savage must apply to Washington State for approval on their dangerous project. Washington’s governor, Jay Inslee, a long-standing champion of building a clean energy economy, will be the final decision-maker on the oil export terminal. Can you send him a message now asking him to oppose this project?

Hi,

We asked the Port of Vancouver Commissioners to reject the proposal from oil giants Tesoro and Savage to build a massive oil export facility in Vancouver, WA.

Now, Tesoro and Savage must apply to Washington State for approval on their dangerous project. Washington’s governor, Jay Inslee, a long-standing champion of building a clean energy economy, will be the final decision-maker on the oil export terminal. Can you send him a message now asking him to oppose this project?

http://act.engagementlab.org/sign/pnw_oil_terminal_inslee/

As a parent, I know how important it is to stand up for the safety of my family. I live in Vancouver, WA, and it’s where I’m raising my daughter. Tesoro and Savage’s proposed facility would ship as many as 360,000 barrels of crude oil every day along the Columbia River — that’s half the volume of the Keystone XL pipeline. This project would incentivize additional oil extraction across America at a time when our country is being racked by climate change-fueled heat waves, floods and drought.

Last week, Gov. Inslee told local press there are legitimate questions surrounding the safety of the proposal and said the public needs to be protected. He has a strong record of supporting clean energy solutions, but the pressure to approve this project from oil companies will be immense. That’s why we need to take action now. If Gov. Inslee is really committed to a clean energy economy, he must reject this proposal.

I will keep working to stop this oil facility. I hope you’ll continue to work with me. By signing my petition with Climate Parents, you’ll be part of a growing movement of families demanding solutions to climate change. And, Climate Parents will keep you updated about this and other issues where we can make a difference for our kids and communities.

Please, tell Gov. Jay Inslee to oppose this massive project and look toward kid safe, climate safe energy solutions:

Corps to remove 220 trees that pose risk to airport, 737 plant flood wall

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on Monday will begin removing 220 trees that pose a risk to a concrete flood wall along the Cedar River that protects the Renton Municipal Airport and Boeing's 737 production plant.
The work also will include removing all woody vegetation within 15 feet of the I-wall. The work will be visible from the Logan Avenue bridge over the Cedar River.
To help offset the loss of the trees and vegetation, the corps will plant  willows at 12-inch spacing along 200 feet at the project site, as well on 1,620 feet of the river's bank across from the project.
The work is near Renton Memorial Stadium.
The corps will plant trees at Renton's Ron Regis Park along the river and some along the Elliott spawning channel as another mitigation site. That... more »

Corps to remove 220 trees that pose risk to airport, 737 plant flood wall

The work also will include removing all woody vegetation within 15 feet of the I-wall. The work will be visible from the Logan Avenue bridge over the Cedar River.
To help offset the loss of the trees and vegetation, the corps will plant  willows at 12-inch spacing along 200 feet at the project site, as well on 1,620 feet of the river's bank across from the project.
The work is near Renton Memorial Stadium.
The corps will plant trees at Renton's Ron Regis Park along the river and some along the Elliott spawning channel as another mitigation site. That proposed off-site plan includes planting 408 trees, or three trees for each of the 136 trees being removed that are at least six inches in diameter.
Outside the 15-foot, vegetation-free zone, approximately 40 trees will remain to provide riparian habitat to aquatic life in the Cedar, according to the corps.
The $65,000 project, paid for with federal funds, will bring the flood wall into compliance with corps rules that require a 15-foot, vegetation-free zone. A corps analysis found that tree roots could damage the "structural integrity of the wall.
The corps expects to finish the work by the end of October.
The corps has coordinated the work with the City of Renton, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Marine Fisheries Service, the Washington State Department of Ecology, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife and the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe.___

Activities begin on Friday at Liberty Park, located at Bronson Way North and Houser Way North.
A highlight of the festival is the Renton River Days Parade, which begins at 10 a.m. Saturday, and travels down Third Street, between Rainier and Mill Avenue.
Those streets will be closed to traffic and parking from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., the conclusion of the parade.
Also this weekend, Houser Way North between Mill Avenue and Bronson Way North will be closed at 5 a.m. from Thursday to Monday, when it reopens.
Continuing this year the Salvation Army and the Art Market are hosting a “feed the people, not the ducks” campaign to collect food for Renton’s hungry.
Visitors to the three-day festival are asked to bring canned foods in support of this cause.
Last year the food drive was successful with 559 pounds of food donated from festival attendees, QFC, Safeway, Albertsons, Fred Meyer, Grocery Outlet and Sam’s Club.
The Art Market has developed an interactive art piece to make giving canned food fun.
“It’s a duck and we’ll be building the body of the duck with the canned goods,” said Beverly Storey, Salvation Army’s director of social services.
The giant duck’s name is SalvArte, a take on the Salvation Army and the Art Market.
“We are the Salvation Army, we are a part of the Renton community and we do take care of the Renton community,” said Storey as to why the group is soliciting food from festival attendees. “We care about people and we care that everyone is getting adequate food.”
All of the food supports the Renton Salvation Army Rotary Food Bank.
Donations can be brought to the organization’s information booth located in Gianini Stadium in Liberty Park, near the arts and crafts vendor area.
For more information, contact the Renton Salvation Army Rotary Food Bank at 425-255-5969.___

County warning of river dangers with mailing, signs on rivers

County warning of river dangers with mailing, signs on rivers

The promise of long summer days in the Pacific Northwest might have residents thinking about heading out for a quick swim or raft trip – but it definitely has King County health and safety officials raising awareness about river safety.
Even though the air is warmer, the rivers are still cold and the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks, Public Health – Seattle & King County, and King County Sheriff’s Office are urging recreationalists to exercise caution around open water.
Public health and safety officials this week are kicking into high gear a campaign to heighten awareness of river dangers and what people can do to help prevent drownings. A mailer that urges life jacket use and provides other river safety information – including resources for affordable and discounted lifejackets -- will be sent to more than 30,000 addresses within about one mile of major King County river recreation areas.
And new signage is being installed at riverside recreation areas. The yellow signs – reading: “Warning, River is Dangerous” – are going up at more than a dozen popular river put-in locations on King County Parks land.
“Rivers are dynamic systems, and they are always changing,” said Christie True, Director of the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks. “Warm weather and cold water can be a dangerous combination, and we urge all river users to exercise a high degree of caution and awareness when recreating on any of King County’s beautiful rivers.”
“We want you to have fun and also return home safely from river recreation, so please use caution and wear a PFD on the water,” said Dr. David Fleming, Director and Health Officer for Public Health – Seattle & King County  “If you want to swim, there are much safer places to be – visit a local pool or lifeguarded beach instead.”
Before venturing into open water, King County health and safety officials remind river users to:
Wear a life jacket;
Do not use alcohol and drugs which can impair your judgment in an emergency;
Keep children within reach, always watching them closely near and in water;
Choose safer swimming options with lifeguards present, such as a beach, lake or pool; and
Know river conditions before getting in the water.
The county’s river safety campaign is funded by the King County Office of Risk Management’s Loss Control Fund.
For more information on river safety and drowning prevention, visit the King County river safety web page atwww.kingcounty.gov/riversafety.___

The clues so far:
GRAHAH: Graham flew into the "new" location of this local institution, but he flew by so fast he could only see a portion of their sign. (Graham is courtesy of Waste Management.)
ELLERY: A duck's beak is called a bill. Ellery goes to this City Hall Department to take care of hers.
OZWALD: Ozwald is going to have a "super" time at this place.
JOSEPHINE: Josephine was last spotted "Landing" amidst all these toys.
POIROT: Poirot is a big fan of the Huskies and gets all his gear at this store--and usually picks up a new book too!
CHANDLER: After stopping at the palindromic donut stand outside this building, Chandler went inside.
LEONARD:  Leonard has gone to the library. Which one? To find out, fill in these words to make two famous events.___

Renton lifeguards gear up for summer
It’s possibly one of the coolest jobs to work in the summer.
One might get a suntan or not in the fickle Pacific Northwest weather, but one can enjoy being outdoors and take in the view.
However, that view is limited to carefully keeping watch over the happy, sun-chasers frolicking in the water at the Henry Moses Aquatic Center, Gene Coulon Memorial Beach Park and Kennydale Beach Park.
They all open June 16 and lifeguards will be at the beaches from noon to 8 p.m. daily.
Swimmers can rest assured knowing they’ll be safe this summer.
Approximately 60 new and returning lifeguards start work June 9 and will staff the beaches and water park June 16 through Labor Day. The lifeguards start work a week ahead of the opening of Renton water parks for training.

Renton lifeguards gear up for summer
It’s possibly one of the coolest jobs to work in the summer.

They all open June 16 and lifeguards will be at the beaches from noon to 8 p.m. daily.
Swimmers can rest assured knowing they’ll be safe this summer.
Approximately 60 new and returning lifeguards start work June 9 and will staff the beaches and water park June 16 through Labor Day. The lifeguards start work a week ahead of the opening of Renton water parks for training.
The city looked for dependability, maturity, good judgement, tact, positive attitude, professionalism and physical fitness when hiring its staff, said Kris Stimpson, recreation manager.
All City of Renton lifeguards have to pass a written test and a swimming skills assessment.
They also have to have current certifications in such skills as CPR and blood-borne training, she said.
The week prior to opening the staff spends time training by taking swim tests, practicing beach guarding and boat skills, emergency-response training, rectifying for certain skills and they will organize their supplies as well as other activities.
The minimum age is 16 to be a lifeguard, but the guards at the beaches are usually college-age, said Stimpson.
Last year no patrons to the lifeguarded water areas required CPR, but about 40 patrons at the pools needed assistance as they were struggling in the water, Stimpson said.
“Our biggest problem is losing lifeguards in late August as they go back to school,” Stimpson said.
The city hired all 45 applicants that they had for open positions this year.
“We take all the 45 applicants, however, they must pass the swim test prior to working,” she said. “Some will not pass. They can practice and retake the test. A lot of guards return, but some graduate from college and move on to their careers.”___

The phased closures will ensure there are available, but limited locations to purchase liquor across the state, according to a liquor board press release.“There is a lot of work involved in transferring these stores to private ownership,” said Chris Liu, the liquor board’s director of retail services. “This method will ensure that our customers have the ability to buy liquor right up until June 1, when private retailers take over.”Thirty five state liquor stores will remain open until June 1. Customers will experience the most limited service on Thursday, when all contract and the majority of state stores will be closed. Two liquor stores will be open in Kent on Thursday, including on 108th Avenue Southeast at Panther Lake and in Midway on Kent’s East Hill.___
