This weekend, Sammamish Patch spotted more people taking advantage of the warmer and sunny weather to pedal their bicycles around the city - especially along East Lake Sammamish Parkway.
So, hopefully, more warmer weather will be on its way. Speaking of events that have happened, here is the regular installment of Week in Review (in the news, that is):
Tuesday: In the feature, Sammamish Patch featured Princeton the Pomeranian. Take a look at previous features because dogs are still in need of a warm, loving home.
The City Council voted to remove the Southeast 32nd Street barricade, though some residents are still concerned about safety.
School officials and the State Patrol reminded young people to be safe, given a report of a possible sexual assault of a teenage girl just outside of Issaquah.
Wednesday: In "Whiz Kids," the ASB students from Christa McAuliffe Elementary School were honored. In the parenting column, writer great question: When do you buy a membership to an organization, such as a zoo or museum? Or when do you buy a single ticket for everyone?
Thursday: , editor of Bellevue Patch, reminded area residents that the state's Good to Go website was still having problems. The site was designed to sell passes for the State Route 520 toll. The site should be repaired in the coming week.
In another item from the News You Can Use Department, reminded motorists (say, if you live in Sammamish but commute to Redmond) that Redmond police are enforcing fines if cameras catch you running a red light or speeding. Moran edits Redmond Patch.
Also, on Thursday, Nathan Lee, a 9-year-old pianist from Sammamish, won the grand prize in the Ten Grands youth music competition, which is sponsored by KING FM (98.1).
At some point in the week, Sammamish Patch also noted that the City Council and city government staff want to hear feedback from residents about possibly building a community center with aquatic facilities. Public meetings are coming up during the week of March 7.
Sammamish Patch also posted photographs of a visit to an Eastside Fire & Rescue station in Sammamish in the regular feature.
Friday: Sammamish Patch posted a story from its sister publication, Redmond Patch, about a Sammamish woman who used CPR to save her father. He lives in Sammamish. The woman is a Redmond police officer.
Writer reviewed police reports and spotted one in which the Sammamish Heritage Society was sent peach-colored narcotic pills to its post office box. The police were called.
Writer highlighted the Snoqualmie Casino in her Great Escape feature. She says there are activities of all sorts - in addition to gambling. As the name implies, these escapes really are great.
In past , she's talked about a modern twist on bowling and an upscale (but close) movie experience in Redmond (with food served at your seat).
Saturday: Sammamish Patch spent time with Eastside Fire & Rescue members who were preparing for Sunday's Scott Firefighter Stairclimb in downtown Seattle. It's a fundraiser and firefighters run up the Columbia Tower - as fast as they can.
More news - especially in the form of Week in Review - will be coming, um, next week.
