Jensen search continues

   The search for 53-year-old Arlene Jensen of Kingsgate continues. She disappeared May 26 or 27 from her Compton Meadows Condominium, leaving the front door ajar, the TV set on, and her purse in its normal place. King County detectives continue to actively pursue leads, according to police spokesperson Joanne Elledge. She described the search as sad and frustrating. Jensen is described as a 5'3", 125-lb. white female with brown hair and hazel eyes. Her son, David, says it is unlike her to just disappear. Anyone with information on the case can call Det. J. H. Doyon at (206) 205-7809.

Bothell citizens invited to celebrate public safety bond victory

   Bothell citizens are invited to attend a community celebration barbeque-style picnic at noon on Thursday, June 19th, in recognition of voter approval for a $9.7 million bond issue to build a new public safety facility. The ballot proposition was approved by a 64% majority at a special mail ballot election held on May 20th.
   City Manager Rick Kirkwood summed up the sentiments of the City Council and staff by saying "Voters realized that in order to keep the community safe and our citizens protected, a new police station is a necessity. This is the single most important project this community has faced in a long time. The voters made a good decision and we thank them for that."
   The picnic site is located north of Bothell City Hall, at 18305 101st Avenue NE in the downtown area. Call 486-3256.
