PHOTOS: Holidays in the Park

Wednesday night dozens of neighbors came out to the annual Holidays in the Park tree lighting at the Lake City mini-park. The annual event is organized by the Lake City Chamber of Commerce and the Lions Club.

People enjoyed cookies and cider as they listened to music from the Ingraham High School Band.

And of course, Jolly Old St. Nick made an appearance at the event.

Here are some photos of Wednesday night's festivities.

Weekly Walk Report 04: December 5th

This week's walk went well. It was very quiet on the streets.

We picked up litter as we traveled the usual path. One of the two memorials ( the one in front of the future Elliott Bay Brew Pub ) was gone. At that location, there were a few plastic shopping bags tied to the hurricane fence with empty cans in them -  a makeshift trash container. They were filled, so we took them down and put them in our trash bag. The other memorial at the NE corner of 127th and 30th is still there.

By the 99 cent store, we heard kids singing Christmas songs as a family walked through the space between Cedar Park and the Panos building.

Comcast Internet outages?

A resident of 25th Avenue NE has been having intermittent Internet issues with Comcast for a few months. There have been nearly a dozen repair of service calls by the Comcast customer.

Twice a Comcast technician has been called out and at the last minute the service call cancelled because Comcast says there is an outage in the area.

We are curious if any other residents of our neighborhood are having Comcast connectivity issues lately? (Specifically last night, Sunday from 7p.m. to 12 a.m. Monday)

If there is an outage in our area we assume it affects other customers.
