Morning Memo/Sunday: 6 juveniles arrested … Yancy Noll suspect denied bail … kindergarteners prepping for college

Weather:  The bright, crisp weather continues today and tomorrow, with some sunshine and temperatures in the high 60s. Look for lows in the 50s overnight. And today is the last day of the Puyallup Fair, a fine pairing for fall weather. Gates close at 10 p.m., so you have plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine and do the, well, you know.  The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic: The 520 bridge is closed for construction until 5 a.m. tomorrow, but  Mercer became less messy last night, a bit ahead of schedule. The Interstate 5 on- and off-ramps at Mercer Street were opened last night, and the northbound I-5 on-ramp at University Street is also clear. The map and cams.

Six offenders at Snoqualmie juvenile facility arrested:  The boys were apprehended after authorities say they planned a violent escape that left a female staff member injured. Police were brought in to search for the boys and located them in a wooded area nearby. The six will be held at the Seattle juvenile jail for investigation of second-degree assault, unlawful imprisonment and escape, a sheriff’s spokeswoman said. The injured staff member is expected to recover.

Suspect in Yancy Noll killing denied bail:  Dinh Bowman, suspected of fatally shooting Yancy Noll on Aug. 31, was held without bond Saturday after authorities told a judge that Bowman posed an extreme risk to the public. A charge of first- or second-degree murder against Bowman will be filed by Tuesday, said Scott O’Toole, senior deputy prosecuting attorney for King County.

Elementary-school students are thinking collegiate thoughts at some South King County schools, where students sport T-shirts with college logos and sing university fight-song lyrics. The schools have launched a series of programs aimed at getting students as early as kindergarten to consider attending college after graduating from high school, and one principal says he’s already seeing some success.
