Morning Memo/Wednesday: Tuba Man killer … 60 degrees (soon) … Good samaritan killer

Weather: Darn cold overnight, with temps in the 20s in many places, ice on car windows and some slippery roads. Didn’t we say we’d have spring-like weather this week? Can’t get here soon enough.  It is supposed to be clear later today and tomorrow, and looks like there will be some sun. And then there’s that 60 degree forecast for Friday, too!  The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The map and cams.

Tuba Man killer back behind bars: The teen who spent time in juvie detention in the killing of Tuba Man Edward McMichael in 2008 is in jail for reportedly carrying a gun, something he’s barred from doing. Kenneth Kelly was stopped after a chase by gang cops late last month. He and two other teens were convicted of beating and robbing McMichael, who was known for playing his tuba outside sporting venues.  KOMO has the story.

The P-I Globe and landmark status: The Landmarks Preservation Board is scheduled to consider the landmark nomination of the P-I Globe. You’re invited to attend and comment on giving landmark status to the huge, iconic globe on Elliot Avenue West. Oh, board meets at 3:30 p.m. at the Seattle Municipal Tower, 700 5th Avenue, 40th Floor, Room 4060.

Shootout: A bail bondsman and another man were wounded in a shootout Tuesday night in Burien.

Good Samaritan killer sentenced in Wenatchee: The man who punched and killed a bystander who tried to help him with his broken-down van will serve more than 15 years in prison. According to The Wenatchee W0rld, Juan Manuel González-González was convicted of manslaughter in the death of  José Guadalupe García-Sevilla, who went to González-González’s aid when his vehicle stalled and was punched in the face. García-Sevilla fell, hit his head and died the next day.
