Saturday Memo: Man shot in Edmonds … fair opens … flamingo chicks

Man carrying rifle was shot in Edmonds: A man walking down an Edmonds street this morning carrying a rifle was shot and wounded by police, Edmonds police say. The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. We’ll be updating our story as details become available.

It’s fair time: You can do it at a trot, you can do it at a gallop, but fair organizers would prefer you don’t call it “the Puyallup” anymore. In any case, the newly renamed, 17-day Washington State Fair opened yesterday in, yes, Puyallup. The weather has been less than ideal for fairgoers, but who needs sunshine when you have a cadre of employees with squeegees sponging off the giant slide? (We have photos of that and other fair scenes in our gallery.) And the weather’s getting better anyway. If you need ideas on what to see, we have a list of highlights.

Traffic detours, with sports games to boot: The Sounders and the Mariners play tonight, and likely adding to game-day congestion will be several construction projects in Bellevue, Sodo and West Seattle, Monroe and across Highway 520. Be in the know about the best times to go and when things might get hairy. Details here.

Pink pipsqueaks: If Woodland Park Zoo’s baby giraffe didn’t max out your cuteness tolerance, here’s another chance: The parents of six new flamingo chicks are keeping a close eye on their little ones, who recently hatched at the zoo. Five more eggs may or may not hatch in the next several days. The babies might not be as pink as their parents yet … but they’re still pretty adorable.
