Morning Memo / Sunday: Biting Danny Bonaduce … Rent or buy? … Big Metro bus changes

Weather: It’s starting to feel more like fall. Today the highs are in the mid-60s with clouds overnight into tomorrow. The National Weather Service forecast.

Traffic & bus changes: Today on Highway 99 northbound at the First Avenue Bridge, two right lanes are closed due to roadwork. Tomorrow, the big shake-up happens for King County Metro Transit, as tens of thousands of commuters experience changes ranging from a stop moving a couple of blocks to having their routes replaced or eliminated. Transportation reporter Mike Lindblom has the full rundown and Mark Nowlin, from our graphics department, has mapped out the changes in today’s story. See the map and cams for a look at current traffic.

Crazed fan takes a bite:  Danny Bonaduce didn’t know what he was getting himself into when he told a crazed fan she could kiss him. The former child TV star ended up with a bite on his cheek as the woman latched on for a full minute before people could pull her off, The News Tribune reports. Bonaduce says he won’t press charges.

To rent or to buy? The age-old question is addressed on our front page this morning. The answer: It depends.  Even when closing costs, maintenance, taxes and insurance are factored in, owning typically is less expensive than renting in every metropolitan area in the country — up to 42 percent cheaper in the greater Seattle area, according to one report.

Seahawks vs. Rams: The ‘Hawks play an early game this morning at St. Louis and reporter Danny O’Neil has a live chat going now for fans to discuss the action. The game starts at 10 a.m.
