Saturday Memo: A $20,000 good deed … Bertha is in port … Rain and more rain

$20,000 worth of integrity: Bismark Mensah was used to finding left-behind items in the shopping carts he rounded up in his job at the Walmart in Federal Way. But finding an envelope with $20,000 in cash inside was far from usual. Any thought of keeping it? “My conscience wouldn’t allow it,” Mensah said. It was returned to the owner, who made sure the store recognized Mensah’s good deed. Walmart named him the 2013 winner of the “Integrity in Action Award.” Read more.

Weather: It looks like nothing but rain for the week ahead. Temperatures could get up to 60 degrees by mid-week, but they will be accompanied by light rain. For the rest of the weekend? Stay inside to stay dry.

Bertha is in port: The drilling machine that will dig the tunnel to replace the Highway 99 viaduct on the Seattle waterfront arrived in port Saturday morning.

If you’re traveling north: Interstate 5 between South Albro and South Spokane Street is down to two lanes for construction work. The Washington State Department of Transportation advises taking alternate routes and building in extra time this weekend.

Final Four become two today:  Games Saturday afternoon will decide who plays in the NCAA basketball finals Monday. It’s Michigan versus Syracuse and then Louisville again Wichita State.
