Sunday memo: Community center opens . . . Suspect sought . . . Seahawks by 20?
Community welcome: The new Rainier Beach Community Center and pool has its grand opening today from 2 to 5 p.m. The center at 8825 Rainier Avenue replaces the leaky, worn-out facility that was torn down in 2011. The new center cost $25 million, has 48,500 square feet on the main floor, a lap pool and recreation pool with water slide and an outdoor playground and space for community events. Today’s activities include tours, music, refreshments and class sign-ups.
Suspect sought: Seattle police are searching this morning for a male suspect after officers were called to a stabbing at about 5:30 at 14th Avenue South and South Walker Street. As officers arrived, two people ran away. One of them was a female suspect, who was found hiding under a car near 12th Avenue South and South Massachusetts Street. The male victim apparently knew the two suspects. Fire department medics took the victim to Harborview Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries.
Seahawks favored: Those in the wagering world think the Seahawks will beat the Jacksonville Jaguars today by 20 points when the two teams meet at CenturyLink Field at 1:25 p.m. That’s the biggest spread oddsmakers have assigned to the Seahawks in the team’s NFL history. Here’s one thing that’s a sure bet: Traffic around the stadium before and after the game will be heavy. Take that into account in your travel plans today.
