ALSO ONLINE TONIGHT: Ethiopian Community in Seattle celebration

Thanks to Brenda for sending this:

With all the smoke and people staying inside today, I wanted to share another online event that is happening this evening.

Yesterday was Ethiopian New Year; Ethiopians follow the Coptic calendar, which is 7 years behind the Julian calendar, making it the year 2013.

Detour traffic, ferries, police @ Fauntleroy Community Association

Our toplines from the 吉林快三大小群‘s monthly meeting this past Tuesday:

BRIDGE DETOUR TRAFFIC: The SW Barton route to/from the Fauntleroy ferry dock is a lot busier since the West Seattle Bridge closed almost six months ago. The FCA is working on a letter to City Councilmember Lisa Herbold and ‘s bridge-project leader Heather Marx, asking them to come take a look in person and see what can be done about it. The group is also collecting photos and video to show the problem.

FERRY WATCH: No major news, but anecdotally, long lines are making a comeback in Fauntleroy, though says traffic is still off a third from this time last year.

POLICE: Operations Lt. Sina Ebinger from the said one of the crime trends they’re keeping a close watch on is gunfire, with several reports in West Seattle so far this month. Regarding the department-wide shift of 100 officers to patrol, she said the SWP will likely lose its Community Police Team吉林快三大小群 members in the redeployment, so the long-running projects/issues they’ve been working on will have to be rethought.
