Sunday memo: Silas Potter Jr. in jail … construction on I-5 … still raining

weather-407Digging deep for pensions: A Washington state retirement system created decades ago for now-veteran public servants has added particularly daunting burdens for some local governments. Those jurisdictions are struggling to manage costs for the most lavish medical plan possible. Second part of Associated Press series.

It’s still raining: Rainfall for the Seattle area dwindles down to drizzle in the coming week, but for today, there’s a 100 percent chance you’ll need your umbrella.

Now in jail: Silas Potter Jr., the former Seattle Public Schools official accused of abusing his position to steal from the district, was booked into King County Jail Saturday afternoon. A  warrant had been issued for his arrest last week after he skipped a hearing in King County Superior Court the previous week.

Mariners’ home opener: It’s Monday night at 7 o’clock. Expect heavy traffic headed to Safeco Field.

Speaking of traffic: Work continues on northbound I-5 south of downtown with some lanes closed. Highway 522 is closed between Echo Lake Road and 164th Southeast until 11 a.m., and the road from Longmire to Paradise is closed all day in Mount Rainier National Park.
