Stuck in the middle: Deputy mayor acts as swing vote

  • Written by Briana Gerdeman

The first time some Woodinville citizens might have heard of now-Deputy Mayor James Evans was a letter sent last summer by Councilmember Susan Boundy-Sanders that reached the wrong hands.

Blue Angels’ return to the skies mean closures of I-90 bridge during Seafair

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff

The supersonic boom of the F/A-18 Blue Angels over Seattle is sure to thrill crowds during Seafair, but drivers are going to need to plan an alternate route to prevent their travel plans from going bust while the jets are airborne.

WSDOT will close I-90 from Interstate 5 in Seattle to Island Crest Way on Mercer Island during practice flights and performances Thursday, July 31, through Sunday, Aug. 3. Traffic will need to take alternate routes. Drivers should expect heavy traffic and delays in the greater Seattle and Bellevue areas.

Certain I-90 and I-5 ramps will also close 30 minutes to one hour before flight times. Drivers who need to cross Lake Washington should plan to do so at least one hour before the closures or use an alternate route, such as Interstate 405 or State Route 522.

State law requires that ads within 21 days of an election that cost more than $1,000 must be reported in 24 hours, but it has been more than a week since the ad has aired, said Tom Conlon, Goodman’s campaign manager.
