Happy Valentine’s Day: Lookin’ for love? You can find it on the big screen this weekend in the Northwest Rooms at the Seattle Center, where SIFF Cinema at the Film Center will be celebrating the big day with films dedicated to romance. Rather stay at home and watch a rental? Seattle Times writer Moira Macdonald has several suggestions.
Amber alert: The Everett Police Department issued an Amber Alert at 9 p.m. Thursday to locate Roshell Marie Turner, 31, who gave birth Jan. 27. Officials believe the newborn needs immediate medical attention, which has not been provided. The alert remains in effect Friday morning.
Unburying Bertha: Seattle Tunnel Partners will be deciding soon whether to try to fix Bertha by coming in from behind or digging down to the front of the stalled boring machine on the Seattle waterfront. The front-end option seems the most likely, and it has been done before. A machine digging a railroad tunnel in Sarnia, Ontario, had some of the same symptoms as Bertha. The Canadian engineers dug a vault in front of their machine, the Excalibore, lifted the cutter head away and fixed a damaged seal. It took seven months to complete the job. Seattle Times reporter Mike Lindblom tells how it’s done.
Rain keeps coming: Rain will be lighter throughout the day, but another storm system is on the way and it will bring more wind and rain to the Seattle area Saturday. Forecast is for that to continue through most of next week. National Weather Service.
