"In South Korea after a man drove a car onto a sidewalk and began stabbing people. A suspect's been arrested. You're listening to ABC news news radio 1000 FM 97 7 stay connected. Stay informed. Good morning, it's Thursday, August 3rd and at 502 with clear skies. It's 61 degrees in downtown Seattle along with Brian Calvert. I'm mad to factor. Then here's what's happening. Seattle's brand new Coleman dark dock that that is is ready for passengers. Northwest News radio's Jeff Poggio is there this morning. The new ferry terminal is the crown jewel of the waterfront revitalization project. As the Seattle Times put it, planning began shortly after the 2001 Nisqually earthquake as the viaduct had to come down, the seawall replaced and the area seismically retrofitted. But for ferry passengers, they'll notice a much more expansive waiting area here at Coleman Dock with broad views of the Olympic Mountains, the sound and more. But not everything is complete. Soon, vehicles will longer no wait on Pier 48 to board a boat, instead queuing up in two northbound lanes of Alaskan Way. In all, the renovation project cost nearly half a billion dollars. At Coleman Dock, Jeff Pojalyn, Northwest News Radio. City leaders in Seattle taking a second look at a longstanding proposal to reconnect downtown neighborhoods split apart by Interstate 5. Dreamers and doers have been promoting a project called LIDI 5 since at least 2011. This week, city council members listened while boosters described the several blocks of new city space that could be built on top of a covered 5 I trench through downtown. Lyle Bicknell is a city of Seattle urban designer. The big win is to to the city reconnecting neighborhoods, huge pedestrian, huge environmental benefits. Those benefits would come at great financial cost, but city council member Andrew Lewis says the plan is worthy of consideration businesses are now open to construction as the city enters into a 2024 comprehensive planning process. The next big thing for our public asset planning in the core of the city really could be the potential of this lid zone successful freeway lids can be found above I 90 on Mercer Island and immediately adjacent to this proposed lid zone where freeway park and the Seattle Convention Center already span part of I -5.

It looks like now it has been moved over to the off -ramp where it's sort of flanking on both sides of that ramp but I don't really see that that ramp currently is blocked but it's flashing lights in the darkness it's definitely a bit of a visual distraction. I'm not seeing too big of a up back there but you're just gonna need to proceed with a little bit of extra caution. And then we are working with a crash in the index area. This is eastbound US -2. It is east of index Galena Road and all of the eastbound traffic that is currently blocked in that area. Also in Tacoma we are working with a crash. This is going to be partially blocking our ramp from Sprague to eastbound State Route 16 and we're seeing a little bit of right crowding now on southbound I -5.

"The Seattle Times have settled out of court over public records requests SPD has agreed to change its practice of treating multiple requests from a single user as a single request. That policy led to months even years containing some records. The Seattle Police Department had asked the City Council to provide more resources for public records processing and that didn't happen. That's attorney Kathy George who represented the Times in this case she says SPD will hire four temporary employees to help clear the backlog of requests that have been piling up. We did reach out to both Seattle Police and the City Attorney for comment and we've yet to hear back from either. Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell has forwarded legislation to the City Council help reduce the city's drug problem. The plan would invest 27 million dollars toward facilities and services to expand treatment and address public drug use. Coma Force Chris Daniels spoke with Mayor Harrell about the proposal. Seattle Mayor Bruce Harrell says unlike that failed council vote his legislation gives specific instructions to police on when to arrest somebody who is using drugs on city streets and also provides millions of dollars for diversion and treatment programs. He has now officially sent it to the Seattle City Council for quick approval. This as the overdose deaths in Washington State continue to go up by the week. The state leads the country in overdose deaths. Seattle and King County have seen fentanyl issues in the downtown core skyrocket emergency calls related to opioid ODS of 73 % in a year but the council declined last month to codify a state law into municipal code to make drug possession a gross misdemeanor. Harold says his legislation builds off of that with 27 million dollars to expand treatment facilities and specifically identifies a new quote threat harm of standard for users who pose as a public safety risk. Our approach is one to reset norms and expectations in the city and so we're not going to go around and make arbitrary arrests if that's the point. We'll do the outreach, we'll give notice, we'll let know people what we're trying to do but certainly we will make arrests when we think that are good arrests, constitutional arrests but most importantly we always want to get people treatment and so I think the law that we propose calibrates that balance. It's a public safety and public health approach toward that area. Harrell says an accompanying executive order will offer that clear guidance on when officers can make those decisions to arrest a user who is deemed to be threatening to the public. There has been a flurry of reaction, positive reaction from the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber Commerce, of the Downtown Seattle Association and the Seattle Police Officers Guild who have all called for a quick passage of this legislation. KOMA4's Chris Daniels reporting. A sad byproduct of inflation, people more are having to surrender their pets. The same thing happened during the 2008 recession as people either lost their homes or were between living situations. Libby Jones is the chief operating officer for Seattle.

Seattle to pay $2.3M to whistleblowers over ex-mayor Durkan’s 2020 deleted texts
"Seattle will pay $2.3 million to whistleblowers to settle a lawsuit over ex mayor Jenny durkin's deleted text messages. The lawsuit was brought by employees who helped reveal the thousands of then mayor durkin's text messages had been deleted in 2020, amid protests over George Floyd's death at the hands of Minneapolis police. The Seattle times reports the terms of the settlement were finalized this week after the whistleblower complaint, texts of other top officials were also discovered to be missing from that period when police used tear gas against Black Lives Matter protest crowds and vacated a police precinct.

No, you must first tolerate it. You must accept it. You must then celebrate it, then you must participate. Those are the four steps of the alphabet mafia from toleration to participation.
