Monday memo: Dangerous suspect … Eyeing the Needle … Zags vs. St. Mary’s tonight
Renton shooting suspect: King County sheriff’s detectives say the suspect wanted in an elderly couple’s slaying over the weekend is an “extreme danger” to police and the public. Less than two days after 26-year-old Michael Chad L. Boysen completed a nine-month prison sentence at Monroe Correctional Complex, his grandparents were found dead in their Renton-area home.
Protecting Space Needle views: With development on tap for South Lake Union after zoning-rule changes, precious public views of the Space Needle could be crowded out by taller buildings. But Seattle has long valued showing off the Space Needle. Bob Young takes a look at the balancing act between development that could benefit the public and preservation of that famous Seattle view.
Rain: How’s this for consistency? The National Weather Service expects Seattle to get a daily dose of wet all week.
Zags to play usual foe St. Mary’s: Once again, the Bulldogs will face the St. Mary’s Gaels in the WCC conference championship. The teams are well acquainted. In fact, they’ve faced each other 15 times over the past 5 seasons. This time, with the Zags at No. 1 in the national polls, St. Mary’s will be looking for a big-time upset heading into the NCAA Tournament.
Peeps contest: Wednesday is the last day to enter the 2013 Peeps contest. Make something crazy out of those sticky marshmallow puffs and send us a photo of your creation. Winners could win up to $500 in Bartell Drugs gift cards.
