Important Credential Papers Stolen In Recent Car Prowl
Laurelhurst Blog - The Laurelhurst Blog Staff received this email:Just another frustrated neighbor complaining about a car break in.   We live on the 4800 block of NE 40th Street, one block from the park.  On Friday evening, October, 17, I must have inadvertently left my car unlocked, and they took everything in it.   My dog and I are work as an animal- assisted pet therapy team and they took my bag.  It has lots of  dog stuff, like leashes harnesses, etc.  Most importantly, it has the credentials that allow us to enter facilities to do our work.  The bag is brown and white polka dotted and has a Ronald McDonald House logo on it.   If anyone sees it, I'd really like to have it back.  I can't imagine the petty thieves have any use for the contents, and I'm hoping they tossed it in the bushes somewhere.  Read more...

Public Meeting Tomorrow on Radioactive Contamination Cleanup at Magnuson Park
Laurelhurst Blog -   Tomorrow from 6-9pm, the Department of Ecology is holding a public meeting at the Mountaineers, about the cleanup of radioactive contamination at Magnuson Park. The information says:The agencies working to clean up low-level radiation from two former naval maintenance rooms at Seattle's Magnuson Park will provide updates and answer questions.    Cleanup work by contractors for the U.S. Navy has been under way since June 2013. The Navy used the rooms to repaint aircraft cockpit dials with glow-in-the-dark radium paint in the 1940s and 1950s. The Navy owned and operated an air station at what is now Magnuson Park and is responsible for cleanup of all contamination left from its operations. Park areas open for public use and access have undergone review and testing for contamination. Radiological contamination was found in parts of Buildings 2 and 27, both former aircraft hangars.  Building 2 is used for park equipment storage, and has a small area used as offices by the Seattle Conservation Corps. Arena Sports, an indoor athletic facility, is located in Building 27. A former radium-painting room at Building 27 was in an annex, referred to as the south shed, separate from the sports facility. The annex and nearby contaminated grounds are fenced, locked, and closed to public access. The Navy is conducting its work under federal cleanup laws that apply to former and current military facilities. Washington's departments of Ecology and Health are providing additional oversight. Health is the state's radiation safety regulator.  Repeated Navy and Health Department tests have confirmed that no radiation above background level - the amount of radiation naturally present in rocks and soil - is present in the Arena Sports complex. The Navy has completed its interior cleanup of the annex and plans to dismantle it this month, after Health has verified that all contamination has been removed.   Site investigations and cleanup work continue at outdoor areas near these locations, primarily along storm drains connected to the buildings. Further phases of the Navy's investigation will include the lake bottom in areas near the storm drain outfalls at the north end of the park.The open house will start at 6 p.m. and  presentations will start at 7 p.m. Ecology will host presentations by the U.S. Navy, the Washington Department of Health Office of Radiation Protection, the Seattle Department of Parks and Recreation, Ecology representatives, and 46th District Representative Gerry Pollet.  Seattle Parks and Recreation sent out this information published by The Washington Department of Health:Radiation and Your Health - Magnuson ParkWhat is radiation?Radiation is energy given off by atoms and is present in nature all around us. Everyone is exposed to radiation every day from natural sources in soil or from the sun, and you may be exposed from man-made sources lik Read more...

Neighbor Has Car Broken Into Then Few Weeks Later Packages Stolen
Laurelhurst Blog - The Laurelhurst Blog Staff received this email:I  wanted to make other Laurelhurst neighbors aware that the petty crime in our neighborhood is continuing and to keep their eyes peeled. We live on the 4100 block of 42nd Ave NE and back up to Talaris.  Approximately 3 weeks ago my husband's new car was rummaged through in the middle of the night.  He had accidentally left it unlocked but when he went out the following morning to go to work all of the contents of the glove box, center console and his briefcase were strewn all over the car. Nothing major was stolen, or even present in the car to begin with, thanks to warnings from other neighbors and LCC. It was very disturbing.Then again this past Monday, we had two packages stolen from our front porch. Whoever took them must have been really bold because they had to come through our fully fenced front yard to take them off of our front porch.  Luckily the supplier was willing to replace and re-send both packages this week. We absolutely love our neighborhood but are disturbed by this recurring issue and recently had a full security system installed. I hope we are in some way able to get this under control. Read more...

Is The Seattle Police Department "Ignoring" North Seatlle Burglarie?
Laurelhurst Blog - A Laurelhurst Blog reader sent us this article to share published by KIRO-TV last month titled:Leaked memo: SPD ignoring most N. Seattle burglariesSEATTLE -- A confidential memo leaked to KOMO 4 News contains a bombshell admission by the city's police department. The document says north precinct detectives are too short-staffed to investigate most burglaries. A police source said that unless burglary detectives have a suspect's name, evidence photos or surveillance footage, and complete witness interviews, it's unlikely a case will even get worked let alone solved. Pete Rogerson works with Seattle police through the North Precinct Advisory Council, where he offers citizen input on police operations. Rogerson said in all his years in that role, he's never seen anything like this memo. "I think this memo is very troubling," he said. The memo is marked confidential and not for public display, but what it says about burglary investigations could trouble anyone. "It's very surprising," Rogerson said. "I cannot believe this is the case." The memo says at one point, 14 detectives worked burglary, theft and juvenile cases for the north precinct. Today it's down to two detectives and an on-loan patrol officer, even though the memo says cases have climbed to 1,500 a month. The memo concludes, "misdemeanor and even many felony crimes can no longer be investigated except on a very rare, case by case basis." "This seems like a big problem," Rogerson said. "We're just asking for trouble." Seattle police won't divulge staffing levels in the north precinct, saying it keeps the bad guys guessing. However, a spokesperson said the major crimes task force also takes on burglary cases. Additionally, the department uses real-time data and community input to guide where resources are deployed. Milana Richardson, a north Seattle resident, said officers do a good job focusing on violent crime but that didn't help when burglars stole from her home. "I told the police. I took their license plate down. I had their name, I looked them up, where they lived, and I had no response (from police)," Richardson said. Mayor Ed Murray hopes to add 100 new officers in the coming years, though that's not likely to help the lack of burglary detectives today. "Adding more officers is not the sole solution to addressing our public safety needs," the mayor said, "but it clearly needs to be part of the solution." By all accounts, crime safety experts said still vital to report all crimes because that information plays out in how limited police resources get assigned. Read more...

Erratic, Unstable Man Seen In Laurelhurst And Nearby Neighborhoods Recently Arrested
Laurelhurst Blog - Last month the Laurelhurst Blog staff posted about an erratic man (pictured above) seen in Laurelhurst and other nearby neighborhoods scaring adults and children with his unusual behavior.This included yelling at people, screaming obscenities, banging on car windows while people were stopped at lights, making inappropriate comments in front of children, harassing and scaring people and turning on water faucets full force in front of homes and walking away thereby leaving some houses with the potential of flooding if the residents were gone all day.There were numerous comments posted on NE Seattle Moms Yahoo Group detailing their interactions with the male and where it occurred.SPD Officer Strong, informed the Laurelhurst Blog, that the individual was arrested and as of last Wednesday was still in police custody.The same individual was also arrested last month and then was seen again in nearby neighborhoods. At that time Office Strong told a NE resident as she posted on the NE Seattle Moms Yahoo Group:Officer Strong told me that in order for him to be arrested for criminal trespassing, a homeowner needs to see him on their property and be willing to testify in court that they saw him trespassing uninvited on their property. Or the police need to arrive while he is still trespassing and the homeowner would need to testify that he was uninvited. Even then, it sounds like he wouldn't get jail time, but at least the court might be able to send him to a mental health facility and actually require that he stay there. Officer Strong said they are all well aware of this man and are working on getting him out of the neighborhood, although that doesn't seem to be a simple task. Officer Strong wanted us to be reminded that they will respond quickly if the 911 call is made during the crime. If officers can get there when he's still committing the violation (ex - trespass), they will observe the misdemeanor crime occurring in their presence, and have the ability to arrest him. Here are some comments that were posted last month before he was arrested:I saw that man crossing Sand Point Way headed toward Princeton Ave. He has shaved his head and facial hair, but it was definitely him.This man turned on my faucet at 4am today on the 6000 block of NE 39th Street in Laurelhurst.  in the . I heard the water running and saw him. He was "bathing" or drinking from it. The paper delivery scared him away but he left the faucet running.  I was driving by Met Market  and he crossed the street in front of me so I stopped to let him cross. He then proceed to approach the car and yell at me. He then smacked the side of my car with his jacket. Another neighbor saw and we both called the authorities. I was told an officer was sent out but have not heard any news about an arrest. He was wearing black pants and a golden yellow shirt. Hope he gets the help he needs.  Read more...

Long-Time Laurelhurst Barber And Style Shop Going Under New Ownership, Longer Hours And "Freshened Up" Decor
Laurelhurst Blog -   The Laurelhurst Barber (3613 NE 45th Street)  appeared to be closed, week before last, with brown paper covering the windows and then last Thursday, October 9th, the paper was off and a neighbor said it looked as if it had re-opened.   One of the long-time owners of Laurelhurst Barbar, Edward Waage, passed away in February of last year and his partner, Mike, continued to run the Barber Shop.  Two long-time customers, one who has been going to Laurelhurst Barber for about as long as the Barber Shop has been open, over 40 years, gave us this update:After Ed died a few years ago, Mike, the second barber has kept it going.  The hours are different.  Mike is usually there Tuesdays - Fridays from about 7 am to about 11 am for appointments ( a large group ) and then on Saturdays  from 6:30-10, first come first serve.  Two barbers who have single shops up north, 65th and 95th (I think) have combined to buy Ed out.   The buyout will go over the next year.  Ed will stay there for a year and as long after as he wants.   The new guys have met with the landlord who indicated she will lease the shop to  them when Ed's lease is up in a year.  In the meantime, the two new guys are freshening the place up - there will be 3 chairs, (2 of which are much newer);  tile the floor; add new lighting and paint the walls.  I think they will add a big wall TV on the back wall.  It was a very nostalgic barber shop that probably had not had anything done to it in at least 20 or 30 years  so a 'freshen up ' will be nice.  But the old flavor will be gone. The hours will expand.   Mike will continue to be there the same hours he has been.  The new guys will then come in at 11am and stay until late afternoon.  I have briefly met the new guys and they seem nice and friendly.Another customer told us last year that "the old barbershop may not keep long hours but there are well over 100 loyal customers from the neighborhood."Laurelhurst Barber is a different barber than Epic Barber, just a few doors down in the next block.    Read more...

Long-Time Laurelhurst Home Near St. Stephens Demolished To Make Way For Two New Large Homes
Laurelhurst Blog - home demolished recently at 4720 NE 45th Street       home as it stood before demolition at 4720 NE 45th Street  to make way  for 2 new homes  The yellow house at 4720 NE 45th Street, built in 1936, directly across from St. Stephens Church, was recently demolished and will be replaced with two homes sitting each on roughly 5000 square feet, as the Laurelhurst Blog reported in April of last year. The Department of Planning and Development (DPD) project numbers associated with this upcoming construction, which is considered a short plat, are Project #3016836 and #3016832,  were submitted to the City in March of last year.  The owner, Thomas Hall, bought the 2000 square foot home in 1990, and hasn't lived there for quite some time. He also owns the small house next door, 4711 48th Avenue NE.   The land us application states a request "to subdivide one parcel into two parcels of land. Proposed parcel sizes are: X) 5,025 sq. ft. and Y) 5,025 sq. ft. Existing structures to be demolished." However the lot size on the King County Assessor website shows as 9,526 square feet. Branin Burdette, DPD Land Use Planner, told us that "the submitted survey shows the lot at 10,049 square feet, therefore allowing a subdivision of two lots into roughly 5000 square foot lots.  The proposed subdivision shows compliance with the minimum lot size requirements of 5000 square feet." He added that there was a boundary line adjustment one on the lots addressed 4716 NE 45th Street, 4511 48th Avenue NE and 4720 NE 45th Street.   One Home Per Lot.  a city-wide grassroots group monitoring large homes built on side and backyards of existing homes, said that in "reviewing the permits, it looks as if there were three lots and the developer/owner did a boundary adjustment to ensure that the two lots under the current permit would be 5,000 square foot lots.   The group added that three lots have been given three separate addresses (4720 NE 45th Street, 4501 48th Avenue NE, 4503 48th Avenue NE) and are being combined and manipulated n different ways for the project via lot boundary adjustments to create three new lots sizes: A) 5,097 sq. ft; B) 10,049 sq. ft; C) 6,682 sq.ft.   The largest of those three lots (lot "B") will then be subdivided into two lots, each 5,025 square feet, called a short plat. Burdette said that "currently, the only revised lot line shown is the new lot line directly in the middle.  This new property line runs east to west.  The City right-of-way will not be counted in the overall lot size, lot coverage allowances or setbacks." The new home on the northern lot, Burdette said,  will have access off of 48th Avenue NE while the southern lot will, most likely, have access off of NE 45th Street.  Read more...

Suspicious Man On Bike On 51st Avenue NE
Laurelhurst Blog - We received this information:On October 8 at 5:40pm while walking our evening route, we noticed a suspicious looking man on a bike slowly riding southbound at the 4200 block on 51st Avenue NE.   He seemed more than interested to be looking at the homes on our block.He was riding a white bike without a helmet.  He had reddish brown hair (partially bald on top), appeared to be in his early thirties, and was wearing sandals. He had a camouflage backpack.  He did stop at the neighbors driveway and most probably was checking to see through the windows in the garage door, if there were any cars in the garage.  When he saw us, he rode off down the street.

Bill the Butcher Shop Closes All Seattle Locations
Laurelhurst Blog - This was posted on Seattle Eater on Wednesday:Bill the Butcher Is on the Chopping Blockby Sara Billups Oct 7 2014     <img src="http://cdn3.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_image/image/41210728/Screen_Shot_2014-10-07_at_11.42.09_AM.0.0_standard_400.0.png" alt=""/> Tom WeinraubOutside the Laurelhurst location.   All of the butcher shop's locations are closed. <img alt="Bill 2" src="//cdn1.vox-cdn.com/thumbor/MQOw9MmcgTz1KQw12HzrePo0JZo=/cdn3.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/2332940/Screen_Shot_2014-10-07_at_11.42.18_AM.0.png"> After years of financial trouble Bill the Butcher has at least temporarily shuttered all of its Seattle-area locations. According to an anonymous tip from a Bill the Butcher employee the company closed its stores "to reassess finances" and all its staff have not been paid for last pay period:I've been with the company for a while and the only answer I got from corporate is that they couldn't pay us and that the shops are closed until they can find the money to buy product. The shops have been poorly stocked since the beginning of September and I know of at least 5 people quitting within the company. I have filed a complaint with Washington LNI and hope to be paid the money I am owed. This is for all the skilled butchers who have worked so hard to calm frustrated customers during this time of corporate disaster. For the love of meat I wish they would just close their shops for good!Eater was able to reach a staff member today who confirmed that all stores are closed and the company is "hoping to reopen" but "does not have a firm yes or no."Wallyhood reports that the Wallingford location is shuttered. The same sign was found in the window of the Laurelhurst store this morning:Due to circumstances beyond our control we are closed until further notice.Thank you for your support, your patronage and welcoming us to your neighborhood. We hope to see you soon. Established in 2009, the Seattle-based chain became publicly traded in 2010. Eater first reported on the cash-strapped company in 2011, when CEO/Owner J'Amy Owens disclosed that the firm had only $40,000 cash remaining.The Seattle Times reported earlier this month on Sleep Country USA founder Sunny Kobe Cook's recent blog post rant about Owens: "I viewed her as a friend and someone who has always managed to make a good living, so I foolishly wrote 2 checks, each in the amount of $25,000." With interest, Kobe says she's been repaid $10,000 of the loan that, with interest, stands at $66,000.Bill the Butcher recently reported sales over the last nine months that totaled only $1.3 million, representing a $3.2 million loss.

Fire This Morning At Home In 4300 Block Of NE 45th Street
Laurelhurst Blog - Pictures taken shortly after 6am looking west on NE 45th Street:Pictures taken shortly looking west on NE 45th Street after 7am: General area here fire occurred An early morning fire in the upstairs of a home on the 4300 block of NE 45th Street caused "minimal damage" as one firefighter told an onlooker. A person on their way to work commented that the information on the scanner "didn't look really bad." Shortly after 6am this morning, six fire engines came racing up NE 45th Street along with several other support fire vehicles. A chainsaw was heard cutting a whole in the 2nd floor roof and glass was broken in an upstairs window for more ventilation.  The family next door was seen with their small children going to another immediate neighbor's house during all the activity. Their house was not known to be damaged.NE 45th Street at 45th Avenue NE was closed as well as 45th Avenue NE at NE 45th Street.  Cars were seen backing up on NE 45th Street after they had seen the cones blocking access to the area, then the vehicles were seen then turning northbound on 46th and 47th Avenues NE.About 7am "Fire Support Vehicles," a City vehicle, as well as some new fire vehicles, started arriving and talking to the home owners who were standing out in front, most likely to start the investigation of the fire. There were no injuries.As of this time, several fire engines are starting to leave but the streets have not been re-opened. The Seattle Fire Department tweeted at 6:26am: Firefighters at working fire 4300 Blk of NE 45th St. All occupants out of 2 story residence. Another tweet was sent out at 6:43am - most likely referring to the same location, however another street was tweeted:Small fire on 2nd floor "tapped".
