"Currently and I'm Gary McNamara There's a story just appearing all over the place because I'm sitting here during the break This one from the Seattle times ready for this On defunding the police whether you think to fund the no I don't want you to laugh too hard here Whether you think to fund the police a Samaritan or not it's becoming clear that no entity in the country has bungled the idea more than the city of Seattle This is Danny westney is his name We couldn't even get the meter reader part of it right It never made much sense how moving the parking enforcement out of the police department and into the roads department would further social or racial justice But it was proposed in the hot summer of 2020 anyway as a way to stick it to the cops by cutting their budget Along with more meaningful moves such as moving the 9-1-1 dispatch center to a new department to try to shift how many calls are answered by officers with guns The city council initially cut the police budget by 17% never reaching the 50% goal but the agency has been in a tailspin ever since More than 400 officers have left while crime has soared This past week the Seattle times and others reported new sex assault cases are not being investigated because of understaffing Meanwhile the software approaches envision for community safety are still in the pilot stages This past week the city announced It is refunding one 100,000 parking tickets and voiding another 100,000 because of an oversight Namely that the parking enforcement officers who are civilians were not granted the authority to write tickets after they were switched out of the police department last fall It's a 5 $1 million mistake Or it would be if that's hopefully the end of it but there's another wrinkle Which like most of the defund the police efforts so far could snowball more in an unintended direction It turns out during the 7 month period when the meters lack the right commission to do their jobs they didn't have the authority They also authorized more than 10,000 toes of cars and trucks from city streets Wow We're still crunching the data but so far we count over 10,000 impounds authorized by the Seattle park in enforcement officers Said chuck labor two president of Lincoln towing which has the sole contract for city initiated towing Most of those impounds were peak hour toes in which parking officers okayed an impound and tow truck swooped in to clear the road lanes of parked cars at rush hour If the tickets aren't legit then there's little doubt some people will now contest the toes said the towing company operator We also auctioned off some of those cars He said he estimated about 1700 of the 10,000 plus cars were sold off in a statement Friday the city said it has not planning on automatically refunding towing and storage fees related to bad tickets on the ground that it doesn't necessarily require a ticket to get towed This decision does not affect the rights of person has to request a hearing to challenge a toe was provided by city law the tow company was skeptical what's going to happen here is we're going to get sued and I can guarantee it and I'm going to forward every one of those lawsuits over to the city And then once Seattle council member Alex Peterson summed up about the ticket fiasco this reinforces that rearranging our public safety systems as complicated and can result in unintended consequences unless implemented with the utmost care Yes and it isn't clear yet who in the administration failed here but all 9 members of the council did vote for this back in the activism fueled atmosphere of 2020 at the time there hadn't been any in depth study of the move nor was anybody really asking for it The Black Lives Matter protesters weren't clamoring about parking meter readers They were focused on cops At work of actual cops So there you go There's been some talk of expanding the parking officers duties to include some of the things cops do now like directing traffic or responding to car prowls but if they're going to be doing crime work in the future why shift them to the road department in the first place Everything just totally screwed up Well I mean that was the idea It was it's the same nonsense of reallocating funds We're reallocating funds and they remember let's hire social workers to go on calls 9-1-1 calls Well they said the real reason all this was performative it was to appear to be slashed in the police budget without actually cutting any city services or saving any money Well yeah you're just changing it You're just taking essentially one large function of the police department and putting it over in another department Now they don't have authority Now oh I guess we need to dismiss all of these parking tickets Congratulations you defunded and then unfunded because those parking tickets are funding Yes I just happen to see the article I mean but this is this is it This is the nonsense that we live in But remember the very liberal actor Michael rappaport on in New York City he was on was he on Twitter I forget was it was posting video I don't know if it was on his TikTok or it was one of his social media pages He was posting the videos of the thieves going into a local I think it was a CVS But it was a local pharmacy and he was outraged and then he kind of did an update on that a few weeks later You know so people in you know whether it's Seattle New York all these major liberal cities now where we say where they say.

"We're in our resident historian Felix Bedell joins us with a quick look at the stories behind the names of local places and things. And this week the mystery of Kellogg Island. Has been solved. It looks maybe didn't know there was a mystery of Kela gone, but we did talk about it a couple years ago on all over the map. It's one of my favorite spots anywhere in the world. It's in the Duwamish River, not far from Elliot Bay. What it is is one of the last remaining natural parts of the river is just a little piece of land. A few acres with the main dredge navigation channel on one side and a nice, curvy little natural channel. On the other, he conceded, Person from Port of Seattle Park itself invisible from the air, especially if you're coming in to see attack from the North. You look down. You look like you're looking back to the 19th century. Now. Two years ago, I did some digging and came up with a couple of possible namesakes for Kellogg Island Landowner and former Seattle Fire Department chief named Gardner Kellogg and a doctor upon would be island named John Cho Kellog big figures here in the 19th century. There's no paper trail. Nobody consulted from the port of Seattle to the drama's tribe to a handful of local historians could definitively say then fast forward to a few days ago, my old friend Matt McCauley, emailed me. He's a historian over Kirkland. I've known him since high school. That was doing some research stumbled across Gardner, Kellogg's name on some property records. That knew about gardener Kellogg's Fire Department career and remembered he remembered our story from a couple years ago, he started wondering what other property records might reveal. Help from Greg laying at the King County archives, MCA Plat maps and deeds and figured out that Kellogg Island is named for yes, drumroll, please partner Kellogg's brother, David Kellogg, David Kellogg. And we had mentioned David in the story we did two years ago. It's certain he was kind of like a red herring. In a mystery. You wouldn't have suspected him And if you read my story two years ago But David Kellogg bought that land from the U. S government in 18 65 and started subdividing it and selling it off. He called the area Kellogg subdivision of Lot 11, very romantically named and somehow or other, the name Kellogg stuck to the island. Now I know this probably seems pedantic, but I think it's worth celebrating when a granular detail about a pretty remarkable place can be nailed down definitively like this. That's a big deal. So congratulations to Madame Kali and also David Kellogg, Matt found is a very colorful character. He owned the city's first drugstore. He battled Ezra Meeker over renaming Mt. Rainier. David Kellogg preferred the indigenous name to coma before he came to Seattle. He fought alongside abolitionist John Brown and Bloody Kansas. So really interesting guy. And before was called Kellogg Island. James Rasmussen, the Duwamish Dr told me. It was called Mud Island or Muddy Island. And since the port of Seattle has been re naming many of its parks, who knows? Maybe there'll be a move to rename the island too. But you know, whatever. It's called business. It's an incredible place Kellogg Island and thanks to Matt McCauley, Greg Lang, We know just a little bit more all about That's that's the better story than that. If it was named after the corn flakes that would have been like the best to you each morning, I would have sort of a healthy way to start your day, but not necessarily very historically accurate.
