Thursday Memo: Pacific lives … Man shoots ex-wife … Sounder service nixed, again

National Weather Service forecast

The town of Pacific lives! At least for another year. KING 5 reports that the Pacific City Council has voted to buy insurance that will allow the city to stay incorporated for at least another 12 months. There’s been a lot of turmoil in that tiny town, including controversies over Mayor Cy Sun. The insurance company blames him for the $11 million in lawsuits facing the city.

In Kent, a man drove a pickup into a home and shot his ex-wife in the hand: A woman was shot after her ex-husband drove his pickup into a home near Kent, pulled out a gun and fired. He then drove away. Police are looking for him. He was driving a black Dodge Dakota with Washington license plate B78258F. KOMO TV reports that there were three children in the home at the time of the incident.

The bane of Sounder service: Unstable slopes, mudslides and rain all mean bad news for Sound Transit’s service between Seattle and Everett. They keep saying passenger service will resume soon, but really, not so much. Here’s a hopeful headline: Sounder Northline service might start again Monday. Yeah, right. Makes you wonder if commuter bus service between the two cities is booming.
