A rainy Mother’s Day and rest of week: Shower all the mothers out there with love ’cause it’s going to be a rainy one.
Central District Shooting: Not a ton of info just yet, but Seattle Police are reporting a fatal shooting last night near a CD parking lot.
Cafe Racer recovery: Since the Cafe Racer shootings, survivors have struggled, grieved and rebuilt both their lives and the little cafe. Their motto: Racer Love.
Sounders get hot on offense: After a handful of low-scoring (and frankly pretty boring) affairs earlier this season, the Sounders finally got their offense humming. Lamar Neagle scored twice, and Mauro Rosales and Obafemi Martins punched balls into the back of the net for 4-0 drubbing of the San Jose Earthquakes. The team has won five straight.
Chris Hansen must really want a basketball team: He’s upped his offer to $625M and cut a backup deal with the current Kings owners to buy 20 percent of the Sacramento team.

How high? That’s a question the NBA Board of Governors has to be asking after Chris Hansen raised his offer for the Sacramento Kings by another $75 million, taking it up to $625 million. The board is meeting Wednesday to decide whether the Kings stay in California or migrate north to Seattle. The NBA Relocation Committee advised the board to stick with Sacramento, but if money talks, $625 million has a very loud voice.
Speaking of migrating: Today is International Migratory Bird Day with events going on at Discovery and Seward Parks. You can watch birds, learn about birds, build bird feeders and take a wildflower walk. Check it out.
How low? And how wet? The National Weather Service says the warm, dry weather the Seattle area has had for the last two weeks could come to an end this evening with daytime temperatures in the next week returning to the 60s and rain starting Sunday and continuing through Monday. Cloudy weather is forecast for the rest of the week. But today is supposed to be sunny. So get out in it.
Mother’s Day: Have you written home to mother? Bought her a nice gift? Made plans to be with her on Sunday? If not, today’s your last day to make sure you’re ready to make Mom feel appreciated on Sunday, which is Mother’s Day.

Weather: Sun, sun, sun! The weather is playing nice for Mother’s Day, already hitting 58 degrees this morning, with a high of 77 expected later in the day. The National Weather Service forecast.
Traffic: A charity 5k from Seattle Center to Spring Street has traffic all snarled downtown this morning, and there aren’t any signs warning about it — just closed off streets block after block with no way to get through. So be ready. It’s supposed to last until about 11:30 a.m. See the map and cams.
Mother’s Day inspiration: Today we have a touching story from staff reporter Sandy Ringer about a mother who is still going strong despite her debilitating brain tumors that have so far required nine surgeries. Former KOMO-TV news anchor Kathi Koertzen has lost parts of her vision, hearing and speech, even lost the anchor job she adored for nearly 30 years. The condition has robbed her ability to eat and drink, and destroyed the nerves on the right side of her face, leaving her with a crooked smile. But no tumor can shake her faith or the love and support she shares with her family, friends and more than 72,000 followers on Facebook. Read the full story.
Violent offender on federal payroll: For your dose of Seattle Times watchdog reporting, we have a story about an offender with a history of violence against women who somehow became a federal informant in Seattle. Reporters Steve Miletich and Mike Carter obtained police records that shows the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives paid for Joshua Allan Jackson’s motel room where he sexually abused an 18-year-old woman, holding her against her will for days. Read the full story.
New Chihuly exhibit: Dale Chihuly’s long-debated Seattle Center exhibition, Chihuly Garden and Glass, opens May 21 at the base of the Space Needle. Hours are 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.- 9 p.m. Friday-Sunday, with admission ranging between $12 and $19. Read the full story and see the photo gallery.
Water rafting accident: For those of you wanting to take advantage of the sun and hit the water, be careful. A cautionary tale comes from Green River where a rafter’s body was recovered about 45 minutes after a King County chopper spotted the overturned raft.
