By Scott Schaefer

After being in business for 60 years, the Boulevard Park Thriftway will be closing at the end of April or early May, owner Bill Knowles told The B-Town Blog on Monday, April 15.

Bill will be retiring after working in his family business for 55 years, and he gave official notice to employees last Wednesday, April 10.

He’s worked at this location for 30 years, but he feels that at age 66 it’s time to hang up his grocer’s apron.

“In my case, I’m just done,” Bill told The B-Town Blog. “People should know that I’m not actually going out of business – I’m retiring. But it’s not an easy game…the margins are small, and I only have one store now.”

Bill and his wife Rebecca have owned three stores at a time before, which allows for better buying power.

“The grocery business can be very tough, you’ve got to be careful,” he added.

This closing is the second one in our area over the last few months, as the Normandy Park Market (which Bill at one time also owned) closed in February.

“I’m not going to blame the internet though, as the grocery business is more about the economies of scale,” Bill added. “I run a union shop and pay the same rates for our employees as Fred Meyer or QFC do. We have similar expenses, but you just need to generate more sales to do well.”

Like when the QFC closed in Des Moines, a Dollar Tree store will be taking over this location.

“It’s sad,” Bill said, “and the fact is I looked for two years to find a grocery buyer for this place, preferably union. But no luck.”

Bill’s family has been involved in the grocery business since 1926. Rebecca joined the company in 1992 following a successful career at Bank of America.

The family grocery tradition was started in 1926 by Bill’s Grandfather, Howard “Howie” Mansfield. The first store was located across the street from the current Boulevard Park location. The original store had two gas pumps and a snack bar serving chili. The family lived in a house attached to the back of the store.

Among the most innovative grocers in the Northwest, Howie installed the first ice cream machine in 1929. He added the first meat shop in South Seattle in 1934 and converted to customer self-service in 1935. The first electric meat saw was purchased in 1939 and conveyor belts were also added to the check stands at that time. The innovations did not end with Howie.

When his son, Richard, returned from World War II and took over the management of the company, he began several remodeling projects, enlarging the existing store to its maximum capacity in the mid 1950’s.

In 1958 and 1959 the Mansfields purchased the property across the street, built the Mansfield’s Shopping Center and relocated the store to its current location.

Boulevard Park Thriftway was purchased and subsequently remodeled in 1989. Another major remodel of the store was completed in 1999. In 1999 the Knowles purchased the shopping center from Mansfield family members.

Bill says to watch for a markdown sale starting around the first week of May. Later they’ll sell all the fixtures, and once it’s empty he’ll hand the keys over.

The Dollar Tree will be investing $1 million into the building, and will open sometime within a few months.

“It’ll be nice,” Bill added.

This free, open event will run from 6 – 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 25 at the Highline Performing Arts Center in Burien.

Rep. Smith is a leader in the Quiet Skies Caucus in Congress, a group of Representatives who have elevated aviation noise and environmental issues to the forefront, along with introducing and passing legislation on these issues.

“In recent years, communities around Sea-Tac Airport are experiencing an increased and disproportionate share of noise and other environmental impacts from commercial aviation,” Rep. Smith said. “Worse yet, the concerns of residents in areas experiencing increased aviation traffic are not being adequately addressed. I’m looking forward to digging into the challenges at the League Town Hall. I have made it my priority to ensure that not only are residents’ concerns heard, but that solutions are put forward to reduce noise and environmental impacts for all.”

“At the local level, I have worked to bring the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to the people and have brought the concerns of residents directly to the agency,” Smith added. “More must be done – now – to understand the impact of these emissions.”

Rep. Smith joins speaker Chris McCann, creator of the Airnoise.io service which has led to over 1,880,000 complaints being registered at 39 airports nationwide, at the League of Quiet Skies Voters Town Hall.

“Congressman Smith is providing vital leadership on a federal level with the core purpose of protecting the quality of life – our health and environment – in our airport neighbor communities,” said Sheila Brush, founder of League co-sponsor Quiet Skies Puget Sound. “We look forward to the Congressman’s updates, ideas, and inspiration, particularly as we prepare for this year’s elections.”

WHAT: Town Hall – League of Quiet Skies Voters

WHEN: Thursday, April 25, 2019, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

WHO: *Rep. Smith’s keynote will take place at 6:40 p.m.

WHERE: Highline Performing Arts Center, 401 S 152nd Street, Burien

About Rep. Adam Smith
Rep. Smith has developed a reputation for having a thoughtful and common-sense approach to governance. He serves as Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, where he is a strong advocate for our military personnel and their families.

Rep. Smith has actively pursued legislation for aviation noise and pollution relief, including the Aviation Impacted Communities Act, which requires the FAA to work with citizens in designated “aviation impacted communities” to establish community boards to address aviation impacts. The legislation requires the FAA to help communities find solutions for their issues; empowers communities to petition the agency for studies on noise and environmental impacts; and also apply for additional noise monitors and mitigation.

In recognition that communities near airports suffer from increased particle emissions, Rep. Smith introduced the Protecting Airport Communities from Particle Emissions Act, which would authorize a study on ultrafine particles and their effects on the communities around major hub airports, including Sea-Tac.

About the League of Quiet Skies Voters
As aircraft noise and emissions present increasing human health and environmental concerns, impact property values and public safety, and create social, economic, and environmental justice disparities, the League of Quiet Skies Voters seeks to empower voters living in the shadow of the 8th busiest airport in the United States with the information to fully understand the risks of this expansion, the alternatives, our rights and choices, and how to engage our policymakers for change. The League was created as an association of regional citizen-led groups including:

The King County Sheriff’s Office is crediting extensive media coverage for Wednesday’s arrest of a 34-year old male as a ‘person of interest’ in an alleged rideshare rape that happened on Dec. 16, 2018 in White Center.

Police say that a family member recognized the man in photos and security cam footage (read our previous coverage, with video, here) and, a short time later, the 34-year-old male turned himself in.

Upon further investigation, the suspect was arrested Wednesday at his attorney’s office and booked into the King County Jail for investigation of rape.

As we previously reported, on Dec. 16, 2018 at approximately 12:15 a.m. the female victim was at a bar at the 5100 block of Ballard Ave NW in Seattle. She went outside to catch her rideshare home that a friend had ordered for her. A man in a black vehicle, possibly a Dodge Charger, led her to believe he was her rideshare driver.

The victim entered the vehicle. While driving her home, the victim states the man pulled the vehicle over and raped her near 11400 block of 5th Ave S. in White Center.

Surveillance footage captured the person of interest near the victim’s home. This subject was described as possibly Hispanic and spoke with an accent. King County Detectives have, at this time, been unable to associate the man with any rideshare company.

Daniel ‘Capone’ Varella has been arrested.

UPDATE: On Tuesday, April 2, Daniel Varela AKA “Capone” – wanted in connection with an attempted murder in White Center on Mar. 20 – was arrested after an anonymous tip that he was located at the Zintel Canyon Park in Kennewick, WA.

Members of the US Marshal’s Task Force located Varela sleeping in a brush area of the park.

He was arrested without incident and booked into the Benton County Jail in Kennewick.

As we previously reported, Police say that at around 2:25 p.m. on Mar. 20, a 55-year old male was in a minor vehicle collision with a fence and pole in the 1700 block of SW 98th Street in White Center.

When Deputies arrived, they found the male victim had been stabbed multiple times and his throat cut.

The victim was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.

The victim survived, but is still recovering.

“Thanks to everyone who helped to locate and arrest Varela without incident,” Sgt. Ryan Abbott said.

UPDATE APRIL 3, 2019: A ‘Person of Interest’ has been arrested in connection with this case. Read the latest update here.

The King County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help to identify a person of interest in a White Center rape investigation.

Police say that on Dec. 16, 2018 at approximately 12:15 a.m. a female victim was at a bar at the 5100 block of Ballard Ave NW in Seattle. She went outside to catch her rideshare home that a friend had ordered for her. A man in a black vehicle, possibly a Dodge Charger, led her to believe he was her rideshare driver.

The victim entered the vehicle, but while driving her home, the victim states the man pulled the vehicle over and raped her near the 11400 block of 5th Ave S. in White Center (map below).

Surveillance footage embedded below captured the person of interest near the victim’s home. This subject was described as possibly Hispanic and spoke with an accent. King County Detectives have, at this time, been unable to associate this man with any rideshare company.

Here are some screengrabs from the video showing the suspect:

Police urge anyone with information of whom this person of interest is, please call the King County Sheriff’s Office at 206/296-3311.

The King County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help locating Daniel Varela AKA “Capone”, a suspect wanted in connection with an attempted murder in White Center on Wednesday, Mar. 20.

When Deputies arrived, they found the male victim had been stabbed multiple times and his throat cut.

The victim was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition.

The victim survived, but is still recovering.

Police say that suspect in this attack has been identified by King County Major Crimes Detectives as Daniel Varela AKA “Capone” a 42-year old male listed at 5’9 and 175 pounds.

Varela has been charged by the King County Prosecutor’s Office with one count of Assault 1.
