Morning Memo/Thursday: Snow? … Edmonds harassment … soccer thievery

With the magnificent winter face of Mount Rainier as a backdrop, birds take flight at dusk above bare trees Tuesday near Emerald Downs Thoroughbred racetrack in Auburn. The mountain is expected to receive a new coat of snow this weekend as a cold front from the Gulf of Alaska arrives. Whether there will be snow in the lowlands is still a guessing game, said National Weather Service meteorologist Dennis D’Amico. “There’s a possibility for lowland snow, though we don’t quite know when or where.” Meanwhile, there’s always the view.

Weather: Let’s see, fog-sun today, fog-sun tomorrow, rain-snow Saturday? Sunday has a 50 percent chance of snow. The National Weather Service forecasts Sunday snow and snow mixed with rain on Monday in the lowlands. We  hope that’s a stretch. The details.

TrafficThe map and the cams.

City of Edmonds harassment case: You might remember that Kimberly Cole, the former executive assistant to Mike Cooper, the former mayor of Edmonds, had filed claims of a hostile work environment and harassment against the city a while back. According to a post by our community news partner My Edmond News, the city has released the results of an independent review of the matter. In a news release, the city says that  “of the 14 separate allegations raised by Cole, all but two and part of a third were either unfounded, not sustained, or if the facts were sustained, they did not constitute or suggest harassment.” Cole’s attorney says the city hasn’t provided the report to his client and it’s no surprise the city “would reach the convenient conclusion that the actions and inactions of those in Ms. Cole’s work environment didn’t subject the City to any liability.”

Youth soccer-fund theft: This happens enough that it’s not all that surprising, but the money amount in this case is a tad much. The Kitsap Sun has a story of a woman being sentenced after being convicted of stealing $100,000 from a Silverdale youth soccer organization.
