Thank you for joining us this evening on northwest news radio. There's some growing concern among health experts about the newest COVID-19 variant Another day, it seems another coronavirus variant the latest BA 5, said to be highly contagious and causing spikes in cases nationwide. You're seeing this virus evolve quicker and quicker and will probably see another variant in the fall. Doctor John brownstein an epidemiologist and professor at Harvard Medical School tells ABC News, the newest variant show signs of overcoming a person's immunity, meaning so called herd immunity may no longer work. Even if you had a previous infection with omicron or alpha Delta, you could be infected with this new variant. He says it's like contracting an entirely new disease. Derek Dennis ABC News. You may have heard that Elon Musk is no longer interested in buying social media giant Twitter. He wants out of the $44 billion bid, but Twitter executives say the bid is rocked the stock market price and they want to hold mister Musk accountable. Naomi nicks is watching it all for The Washington Post first. Why does he want out of the deal in the first place Naomi? Legally is that Twitter has not been forthcoming and operating back to bed misleading about the number of spam accounts on the platform. He says that it must be much higher than what the company has said, which is that it's lower than 5%. And that this represents the material enough difference that it essentially changes that it violates some of the provisions that Twitter agreed to when he made the deal. Twitter is saying, work, we'll take it as court. The company has said that the number of Salem accounts on the platform is lower than 5% and that it's been truthful and forthcoming about that information and that Elon has to go forward with the deal because he agreed to legally. Yeah, certainly doesn't sound like it's been an easy time at Twitter since Musk first announced he was buying the company. Twitter stock is off about 50% since that first bid was made. It's really been a bit of a roller coaster in part because this is an acquisition that has played out in public in a way that few acquisitions do. And so Elon has publicly criticized specific people and executives at Twitter. He's criticized the platform. He's indicated that he would be potentially open to seeing president Donald Trump return to the platform in a Twitter ban Trump over his role in the gen 6 events. And the employees have had to grapple with, who's thinking about who's going to be leading this company and what direction are they going to take in the months that lie ahead at a time when tech companies stocks aren't doing so well and that there's a lot of server ambiguity in the marketplace.

It's a response to the states recently enacted police reform law, PD says the last time the agency made any significant security changes was back in 2019, right after the mass shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California. As a precaution for large gatherings. More Puyallup officers were added near the gates and on the fairgrounds. That presence has remained and will not change this year. Otherwise fair organizers are reminding everyone to have fun and be aware of their surroundings. Nearby streets are blocked off the vehicle traffic, but there are several still open, especially Near the crosswalk at the state Fair entrance. Authorities are also asking drivers to pay careful attention to the road, since there are so many people and other distractions.

The collision is currently blocking all North bound lanes and the left South Beach online. You are asked to avoid the area, We will have more information as it becomes available. A brush fire has started in the area of Highway 18 near 272nd. Valley Fire fighters, along with multiple other agencies are fighting a two alarm fire there. Every summer. Firefighters worry about fire danger during the Fourth of July weekend as people use fireworks, Cuomo's Suzanne fallen reports this year. The fire danger is even more serious. Fire officials say Fire danger is at an all time high. There's an elevated fire risk this year due to the heat wave that we just had. And we haven't had any significant rain since the heat wave. Check out this car fire and I five and every on Monday the hottest day of the heat wave, and it was a vehicle fire that was near the side of the freeway. And the dry grass nearby caught and it did run, which is abnormal. For this time of year, Another car fire broke out on I five by North East 80th Street, and the grass, of course, is prime for that that type of choir right now this year, it's more important than ever to be extra cautious. If possible, Go watch an official show and leave the fireworks to the professionals. Suzanne Fun Communist Right now. Burn bans are in effect across much of our region. There was a brush fire late Saturday along I five that raced toward homes on the King Pierce County line. Many areas have restricted fireworks, recreational campfires and the use of briquettes for barbecues. Check local fire districts for updates as many changes have occurred in the last 48 hours. Where can you watch fireworks safely. We put a list on our website of all the communities where professional fireworks displays and fourth of July events are happening. We also have a list of the communities where fireworks are banned. Just go to komo news dot com Scroll down to the Don't Miss section at the very bottom of our home page. And police would be pretty busy this holiday weekend, and they're asking people not to call 911 to complain about fireworks noise. They need to keep those lines open for emergencies like injuries, fires and crimes. And again, the fireworks display over Lake Union in Seattle is canceled again this year. Remember it's illegal to set off your own fireworks in Seattle. In the city. Fireworks offenses are punishable by up to one year in jail and or A $5000.5 as the state fully reopens its economy.

"Is on track to begin just a few hours from now on the trial of Derek Chauvet show opens. The former Minneapolis police officer picture here charged in the killing of George Floyd kneeled on Floyd's neck for more than nine minutes. Jury selection was supposed to begin today, but prosecutors fought for a delay until an appeal over reinstating a third degree murder charges resolved. The judge says selection will get underway tomorrow unless the higher court stops of Chopin pleaded not guilty to second degree murder and manslaughter charges. Ah third degree murder charge requires a lower standard of proof to get a conviction. Anti police protesters used the timing of that trial to stage a demonstration in downtown Seattle tonight. Double stroller. Marino's live with the group's message and the movement that trying to build Joel Mary. Instead of smashing windows and tagging businesses, these protesters relied on signs chance and passionate speeches to call for a complete overhaul of the Seattle Police Department. You have seen this movie before Justice for George Floyd is something these protesters don't think will be achieved is a trial for the former officer who killed him gets underway. We see these murders in the streets and we see officers get off. We're not holding our breath for a guilty verdict. Jean Smith, with the Seattle Alliance against Racist and Political Repression, says we face the same lack of accountability in Washington state. These activists say What is needed is a top to bottom reorganization of how police departments air run, starting with the formation of a civilian police accountability counsel to oversee all aspects of operations in full control over budget. Policy hiring firing of top level staff and street level officers oversight full access to investigations. These demonstrators say. The problem with current police watchdog agencies is the people who run them are appointed, alliance members say, unlike Seattle's Office of Police, Accountability, or Opa, Their proposal for a civilian counsel would be an elected board. So it answer directly to the community. There's a lot of cops on board on the opiates, so it's cops watching cops, which isn't great for accountability. Well, These demonstrators do not have a specific timeline to get the legislation out for these civilian oversight boards. They say they plan to hold more rallies. Get their message out peacefully.

The economic impact of COVID-19 pandemic on Seattle

"Cast your mind back. I remember talking with you soon after the pandemic started. And you were describing looking out of your window and seeing hardly anybody on the street where what. He's seeing right now today. Well we have more activity than that there. There are some office. Workers are back that are back of course essential workers. There are things that are open today that we're not open a month ago. Museums like the seattle art museum and wing luke The pike place market has been just a great bright spot through all of this. They've never closed. They've had to adjust plenty. So that's a note of activity and usually it's a lot of tourists there. It's mostly locals that are coming from other neighborhoods in seattle downtown. So there's activity downtown. But we sure want more genders more activity but still i mean. The pandemic did take a major toll on downtown businesses. Can you give us a nutshell. Just what happened over the last year. Yes we all know. Downtowns are all about bringing people together and in a pandemic to stay apart for good reason so this pandemic has had a disproportionate impact on urban areas in our country and downtown seattle. Certainly and so. We've had one hundred sixty small businesses that have permanently closer restaurants and retailers office. Occupancy has been below twenty percent over the last couple of months of folks who are showing up at least a few days in their office during the week. Hotel occupancy is still hovering at twenty percent or below in some weeks and our major venues arts culture performance live music venues have have been shuttered for the most part throughout this period so this has been devastating economically to our downtown into downtown's across the country because when you're all about bringing people together a pandemic has significant impact on on how you function and that's what we've seen john. We are still dealing with this pandemic. we haven't turned a corner quite yet but it does seem that most adults who want a vaccine will be able to get one in the next few months. What could that mean for. The future of downtown really is a game changer and we. We have such a clear line of sight on the pace of vaccinations and win. A majority of adults in our community are going to be vaccinated because of the recent approval of the johnson and johnson vaccine. So it's going to allow office workers to return at some level here Early in the summer late spring. We're talking to employers and companies that are that are making those plans now and it's going allow for leisure travel to resume at higher levels throughout our country in seattle can compete really well for the domestic leisure travel business which we believe is going to be sort of the first type travel to return likely before business travel and likely before international travel. People are dying to get out. We want him to come to seattle so office. Workers in leisure travelers and the seattle. That maybe hasn't been downtown in the last year. We want to invite them back. There's plenty of that is open today and more to come. So that's where we're focused. Some folks are speculating. That this pandemic has forever changed. The nature of work and that many employees may simply work from home indefinitely which could mean way fewer people shopping and dining downtown. Are you worried about that potential shift. I do believe the office and work does get recalibrated but the office isn't going away by any means but it mean that some folks might work from home owners days a week. That's generally what the research in surveys. Both in our own community around the country are saying so. The office in the downtown still has an important role to play. When it comes to work and collaboration in shaping a company an organization's culture i do think it gets a re recalibrated doubt. So recalibrate it. If you've got fewer workers around who else possibly could be drawn down to the core to to kind of make up for the for the flow of energy that used to be there. We'll we're investing still record levels in in housing in downtown so more than seven thousand. Units of housing are currently under construction. Were connecting our city to downtown in ways that are going to help people to take a train from northgate in just a few months. That comes every couple of minutes right into downtown. So there's there's new ways to get downtown. We're significantly in housing. And then we're investing in generational infrastructure projects like the waterfront park and a great new arena seattle center. So there's going to be new things to see inexperienced downtown that weren't here prior to this pandemic and there's going to be lots of new businesses that come in into spaces that were vacated by businesses that had to close through this pandemic so this plenty to look forward to new investments new experiences that we're not here prior to this pandemic and we want to celebrate those in addition to everybody that made it through this pandemic and that's able to reopen. Is there a scenario where you might see that. The downtown doesn't recover. And what would that look like. And what would that mean. There's a lot at risk here. And i don't think we can take anything for granted and every great city has a great downtown. I haven't been to a great city without a thriving core in as a as a city here in seattle in a community. We we've made a big bet on a healthy thriving downtown. We've passed many levies to invest in families and education universal pre-k low income housing and a great park system that is betting on a healthy economically. Vital downtown so we have a lot at stake on what happens on these three square miles of land for the entire city and really the entire region. So we've got to get this writing. We can take nothing for granted.
