Friday Memo: Upholding the law … Freeway closures … Hot Hawks … Clutch M’s win

Role reversal: This former officer seems to have forgotten the part about upholding the law. The former police chief of Montesano is accused of selling meth and heroin. He’s also facing charges for allegedly stealing $1,500 in liquor from the grocery store.

Busy streets: If you’re downtown this weekend, keep an eye out for the Susan G. Komen walkers raising money for breast cancer research. They will be on a three-day walk covering 60 miles that starts and finishes at Seattle Center. Parking could be difficult.

Out late? Be prepared for closures on I-5 between Boeing Access Road South and SR 599. The Washington State Department of Transportation has nighttime repairs planned for the freeway Friday and Saturday nights.

Not dead yet: Summer’s still going strong for another weekend. Highs are expected in the 70s on Saturday and zooming into the mid-80s on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service forecast.

Seahawks sizzle: Let’s hope it’s not too hot for the Seahawks as they take on the Broncos at CenturyLink Field. Last week’s defense? We don’t know who that team was.  The Hawks hope to find their old selves this week. “I think I definitely got my championship spirit back after that loss,” safety Earl Thomas said. “My crave, my hunger and my desire to be unstoppable is back. I didn’t think I lost it, but after that game I was like, ‘Dang, something just hit me,’ and I’ve just been focused ever since and it feels so good just to be feeling like this.”

My oh my: Speaking of sports, just when you start to think they’re a lost cause, the Mariners pull it together. King Felix pitched seven shutout innings and Logan Morrison smacked a three-run homer in the ninth to give the M’s a 3-1 victory over the Angels. With the win, the Mariners move one game behind the Oakland A’s for the second wild card. Catch them at 5 p.m. in Houston on ROOT.
