Tuesday Memo: Stray bullet kills … Troubling scenes … Egyptian Theatre

Stray bullet in Ferndale is deadly: The 23-year-old woman who was at a Father’s Day barbecue when she was struck by a stray bullet from a half-mile away has died. How sad. How bizarre. Two of five people who were shooting handguns and rifles on the other side of the Nooksack River were arrested for being felons in possession of guns. Police are looking at others and talking to witnesses. The Bellingham Herald has the story.

Edmonds shooting: KIRO-TV this morning reported a shooting in Edmonds, but they later tweeted “Shooting in Edmonds? and “… police are still trying to get to the bottom of the troubling scene.” Stay tuned.

Woman dead in Bellevue home: Don’t yet know what happened there. Police first said she had been shot, but then not. They still do suspect foul play.

The Egyptian Theatre closing: It’s been around in its current incarnation for more than two decades. The theater offers what we call around here a “sense of place,” something that is dyed-in-the-wool Seattle. Sorry to see it will be shuttered.

“Living on light” just too difficult: We didn’t think the 65-year-old Eastside woman would able to keep living on water, tea and a tad of milk for too long, but she did last 45 days on what she called “living on light” before giving up. Living on light? Well, OK, sort of.
