Weather:  Quite nice, with highs in the 40s again.

Elderly Bellevue woman missing: Police are asking for help in finding an 89-year-old woman who went missing Friday. Here’s more on her description and where she might have been Friday.

Judge strikes down part of SeaTac minimum-wage measure: Less than a week before a $15 minimum wage was to take effect for about 6,300 workers in SeaTac, a King County judge ruled Friday it can’t be enforced at the airport, but is legally binding at nearby hotels and parking lots. So now, only about 1,600 hospitality and transportation workers in SeaTac stand to receive a $15 minimum wage on Wednesday, the start date for Proposition 1. Read more on the ruling and what could be ahead from reporter Amy Martinez.

Seattle homicides: The number of homicides in Seattle this year is about the same as last, but this year a fifth involved police officers. Of the 29 homicides, six were officer-involved, reporter Jennifer Sullivan writes. There was one officer-involved shooting in 2012. Interim Seattle Police Chief Jim Pugel attributes the number of officer-involved shootings to an increase in people with mental illness not getting the help they need.

Huskies score a bowl win: Interim coach Marques Tuiasosopo led the Huskies to a 31-16 victory over BYU on Friday in the Fight Hunger Bowl. Sark who? Columnist Larry Stone has more about about the game and Tui’s strategy and reaction.
