The Morning Memo / Wednesday: Trucker killed, Bellevue boy still missing, Costco gets to sell liquor

Weather: Look at that big sun over there on the weather chart. And the temperature is expected to be 58 tomorrow. Hey, that’s almost 60 degrees. Yes. Take that November! No rain expected Friday either. More weather.

A truck driver was killed in a crash early this morning when his tanker truck overturned on a ramp from eastbound Interstate 90 to southbound I-405 in Bellevue.

As if you didn’t know… we had an election yesterday: Costco gets to sell liquor, three cities appear to have nixed red-light cameras, Tim Eyman’s tolling initiative trailing…

What has happened to the missing Bellevue boy? Too many unanswered questions. Here’s one about the boy’s mother from today’s story by staff reporter Christine Clarridge:

Why would a woman who had previously been cited for leaving the boy alone in a car do it again, reportedly while driving the sick toddler to a hospital?

Fire overnight at a Bank of America: There was a fire that appears to have started at an ATM at the bank in Madison Park early this morning. The fire got inside the bank, too, but firefighters got it out in about 45 minutes. Police say it’s suspicious. See the post below for more details.

The photo above is one of some 70 murals on display in the Lower Yakima Valley town of Toppenish, which has a new identity, the City of Murals. Here’s more on this project in which the murals were painted on buildings or large boards throughout the city.
