    The Jerry Wilmot Green Gateway Park Finance Committee is looking for creative funding sources to pay for the future park. Suggestions for funding have included business, community group or individual donations, "anything from large donations to buying a brick," said Lane Youngblood, project coordinator for the park.
    Those interested in becoming a part of Woodinville's Green Gateway should call Youngblood at 489-2700.

    A Seattle man may face charges for four burglaries that occurred in the Woodinville Highlands area on Nov. 1. The suspect was caught by Bellevue Police following a high-speed escape attempt after an alleged break-in.
    In addition, some of the property stolen in the Woodinville cases has been recovered.
    The suspect has been charged in Bellevue for two counts of residential burglary and attempt to elude, and is held on $40,000 bond.
    Police are still on the lookout for three Asian men spotted in the area at the time of the burglaries.

    The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for the proposed TRF-Pacific development in Woodinville is available at City Hall and at the Kingsgate and Woodinville Libraries. Written comments will be accepted until Dec. 21 at 5 p.m.
    The proposed 43.44-acre project would have four single-tenant anchor buildings ranging in size from 34,000 to 130,000 square feet, including a movie theater.
    The project would also have several multi-tenant buildings, eight pocket parks, and two new public roads.
