    Bellevue High coach says district trying to fire him over ‘new … unfounded allegation’

    BELLEVUE, Wash. — The Bellevue High School football coach said Thursday that the school district has recommended to the school board that they fire him. The move comes in the wake of a independent investigation that found the elite high school program violated WIAA rules.  The district released a letter it sent to Goncharoff that said it is considering terminating his employment for “repeated violations of District Board policies” including conflict of interest and interscholastic activities and “for your failure […]

    Commentary: IOC, Brazil making a mistake by not relocating or postponing Olympic Games

    We start with news that USA Swimming has moved a pre-Olympic training camp away from Puerto Rico because of concerns over the Zika virus – a virus whose epicenter just happens to be Brazil – the host country for the Olympics. I think you know what I’m getting at here. We’re now 2 ½ months from the start of the Summer Olympics in Rio – a period that’ll be filled with strong debates, regarding the fears and risks of holding […]

    If you don’t know who the Seattle Storm’s Breanna Stewart is already, you will soon enough

    She’s Seattle’s next superstar, but even Breanna Stewart is surprised by the attention Breanna Stewart has been getting. “I was driving – and someone screamed my name as I’m driving,” the Seattle Storm’s No. 1 overall draft pick told Q13 News. “I was like ‘Whoa!’ That didn’t even happen at UConn.” What did happen at UConn was four national titles – much of that thanks to the three-time NCAA player of the year. Now, the WNBA’s top draft pick has […]

    Commentary: A thank you to the forgotten majority supporting the SODO Arena Project

    I want thank a forgotten majority tonight: All the arena supporters who have been respectful in the aftermath of a divisive City Council vote two weeks ago – and continue to push for answers. For the past week, the council has garnered national attention for the ugly backlash, following a 5-4 vote that coincidentally fell along gender lines. It was absolutely horrendous and reprehensible, the way some fans responded: the vile name-calling, the threats, the disgusting words rooted in racist […]

    Sounders FC pay visit to Joint Base Lewis-McChord

    JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash. — What might’ve looked like a normal Sounders training session at first glance – hardly was. Thanks to a little friendly competition at JBLM. It was just a small part of a special visit for both sides – the team – and the military personnel and families they met. “It was a perfect opportunity to experience something out of our normal circumstances and get piece of mind from people who literally lay it on the line […]

    Commentary: The foolproof arena proposal that we’ve all been missing

    Close to a week later, it still hurts. The battle for a new arena in Seattle seems never-ending and fruitless. Take into account what basically happened last Monday: 1. Seattle’s City Council wouldn’t approve an arena in a location specifically zoned for arenas. 2. They wouldn’t approve a street vacation after their own Department of Transportation formally recommended it. 3. They sided with the Port of Seattle, which, per Tim Burgess, had failed to produce any tangible evidence that the […]

    Former UW baseball player, Braden Bishop, who is now in the Mariners organization playing for the Clinton LumberKings, has set up a charity, the 4-MOM Foundation, to raise money for the Alzheimers cause. Bishop’s mother was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimers, which has had a huge impact on Bishop and his family. “That’s probably one of the biggest things with Alzheimer’s. It’s so frustrating because I know who I was and I’m not able to accomplish what I used to,” Suzy […]
