Monday Memo: Des Moines fire … Soccer love … UW diversity classes
Fire hits Des Moines apartment building: The blaze put the occupants of the 18-unit building out of their apartments early this morning. There were no injuries reported, but one man had to jump from a second-story balcony to escape. We’ll have more on the fire soon.
No shortage of soccer love in Seattle: More than 53,000 fans turned out for the Sounders match against Vancouver Saturday where Federal Way’s Lamar Neagle put a winning goal in the back of the net. Sounder Brad Evans scored the winning goal for the U.S. Men’s national team match against Jamaica on Friday. Sounder Eddy Johnson is making his mark with the national team and could start the World Cup qualifier this week against Panama. And after a rather lousy start, the Sounders are actually winning.
Diversity at the University of Washington: The school is going to require undergraduates to complete a class in some area of social, political or economic diversity before they get that cap and gown. Do you think this is a good idea? Vote in our poll.
West Seattle jogger: We hope to update the condition of the woman who was hit while jogging along Fairmount Avenue Southwest on Saturday. She suffered critical injuries. A passerby found her unconscious on the pavement. The driver took off. Police continue the search for him or her.
