Robbery has touched many lives

  As most Woodinville residents did, I watched and listened with awe at news of the tragic shooting in the town last week. As a business owner and operator my heart goes out to Mr. Otto Beech and those employees and customers of his store. Mr. Beech has obviously made his store a good place to work with long term staff. Employee safety appeared to be a given. I am saddened by the incredible situation all were placed in by the young men who were intent on committing their crime. Their actions have touched many lives and will, no doubt, have a devastating effect on their own families. One can only wonder about the motivation for their efforts.
