City officials have rescheduled the open house for residents to view the proposed sidewalk designs for 116th Avenue Southeast to 6:30 p.m. Jan. 10 in Hazelwood Elementary School’s gym, 7100 116th Ave. S.E.
The open house had been scheduled for Nov. 22 at Hazelwood, but was canceled due to snow and ice.
Sidewalks are to be built on 116th Avenue Southeast from Southeast 88th to Southeast 84th streets.
The City Council reviewed three design concepts for the project in August, and chose an option that calls for concrete sidewalks, curbs, gutters, driveway ramps and pedestrian ramps compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

All 9-year-old Ralphie Parker wants for Christmas is “an official Red Ryder carbine-action 200-shot range model air rifle with a compass in the stock, and this thing which tells time.”
While he impatiently waits for Santa Claus to bring him the BB gun for the holidays, the star of the new 5th Avenue Theatre musical production of “A Christmas Story, The Musical!” has to deal with a foil his own age: bully Scut Farkus, played by Newcastle 13-year-old Ashton Herrild.

Two Liberty High School students were caught smoking marijuana in a car near campus, 16655 S.E. 136th St., Renton, during their lunch period just after 11 a.m. Nov. 12. The school resource officer spotted the students in the car and reported that all of the windows were fogged up and a large amount of smoke was drifting out from inside. He said the car smelled strongly of marijuana, and he confronted the students, who admitted they were smoking. The students said they bought the marijuana from a third student a boys bathroom near the main commons area for $20. All three students were expelled.
