Family and friends will gather April 27 to remember Tricia McLean, and are sharing this remembrance now: Tricia Lynn McLean; October 6, 1962 – March 18, 2024 An Obituary and Love Letter from a Brother, for a Sister Tricia died. Tricia. Died. … Two words that are so opposed to one another that, when uttered together, it is simply incomprehensible. “Wait… Tricia? Died? What?! No!?!” Our hearts skipped a beat, our stomachs dropped, our mouths went dry, and those words spun relentlessly in our heads as we struggled to comprehend the incomprehensible. Yet, that is what occurred on Monday morning ..read more

Your next chance to plunge into Puget Sound from Alki Beach for a cause is one week from tomorrow – and this one is taking on disorders collectively known as EB, under the leadership of a West Seattle couple you might know.

22h ago
(WSB photos) That’s just some of what volunteer divers, coordinated by Seattle Dive Tours, brought up from the seafloor around Seacrest this morning. With the Water Taxi taking a break this weekend, it was the perfect chance to remove some discarded junk from Elliott Bay, as SDT and volunteers have done before. This electric scooter was one of the more unusual items: Also retrieved: A handgun, which had been turned over to police by the time we visited the pier in late morning. Fairly rusty, we’re told, so it’s apparently been in the water a while. (Checking on last year’s cleanup coverage ..read more

That photo is from early this morning, after police responded to a burglary at Alki Mail and Dispatch (4701 SW Admiral Way).

There had been 2 previous failed attempts to make entry in the last few months (the 2nd time only being about 2 weeks ago) but apparently 3rd time was the charm. From our early assessment … they grabbed 6 packages that were logged in for our personal mailbox holders, and fro ..read more

A pot of … coffee at the end of the rainbow? Animated Café proprietor Melanie/”Ana” sent that photo with news that she’s reopening today in her new Georgetown spot, one month after leaving West Seattle.
