It’s not everyday that the defending Super Bowl champs Seattle Seahawks visit your school – including Russell Wilson and Doug Baldwin – but that’s what happened Tuesday, Oct. 21 at Cascade Middle School in White Center.

Students heard what middle school was like for the players, asked questions, and participated in Play60 games during break.

Volunteers from United Way also renovated the school’s student center.

Cascade Middle School is located at 11212 10th Ave SW.

Go Hawks!

2014-carnival-color

The Annual King County Parks Family Halloween Carnival is coming up this Saturday, Oct. 25 from 2-5 p.m. at the White Center Community Center, located in Steve Cox Memorial Park (1321 SW 102nd 98146.) 

Doors open at 2pm and admission is FREE.

“For nearly twenty years, White Center teens and King County Parks have organized a carnival for their local community, and this year’s event  aims to be another crowd pleaser,” reads an announcement.

The woodland themed family event hosts thirty different animal related crafts and games for local children ages 10 and under.

Tickets for each activity are sold for .25 each.

In addition to the games, the carnival also features a costume parade and a free performance by Juggler Alex Zerbe at 3:30 p.m.

This year’s carnival is once again sponsored by the Teens and Staff of the White Center Teen Program.  The WCTP offers free recreational, educational and social enrichment programming to over 900 culturally diverse participants ages 12-19 each year. The program operates five days a week, forty-eight weeks a year and provides structured recreational classes and programs, homework assistance, educational and computer resources, leadership training, volunteer opportunities, special events, field trips, and drop-in activities.  The Annual Halloween Carnival is traditionally one of the teens favorite volunteer events.  Program staff estimate nearly fifty teens will volunteer.

For additional Information, please contact Darlene Sellers, Recreation Coordinator at 206.296.2952

Deputy Julian Chivington has been selected as the new storefront deputy for the White Center community.

Chivington has been with the King County Sheriff’s Office since 2008, and his most recent assignment was with the bicycle unit of our Metro Transit Police unit.

Earlier in his career he worked as a patrol deputy at our north precinct, primarily in the North Bend area. Prior to that, he worked as a patrol deputy assigned to our city of Shoreline contract.

In addition to his duties as the White Center storefront deputy he is a member of our departments TAC 30 team.

Deputy Chivington is looking forward to getting to know both the citizens and businesses of the White Center community.

A bit of his background is as follows:

He is originally from a small town in Ohio, leaving there when he joined the military. Deputy Chivington spent six and a half years serving in the U.S. Army, stationed initially at Fort Benning, and later at Fort Lewis. He was deployed to Iraq twice. On one of those deployments he was injured as a result of an IED which resulted in his military career being cut short.

The King County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that shortly after 3 a.m. Friday morning (Oct. 17), they received a 9-1-1 call about a bloodied stabbing victim in the 10800 block of 1st Ave SW in White Center.

Police say that an uninvolved citizen was reporting a bloodied male had shown up at her door looking for assistance. He had been stabbed, apparently as a result of an argument with another male that he was acquainted with. The victim was found to have life-threatening injuries and was treated at the scene by medics and then transported to the hospital.

The suspect is still at large, and police say that he is driving a blue 1996 Ford Probe with a red bumper and a WA license plate of APA 0835.

“At this time it appears both the victim and suspect live at the address nearby where the stabbing happened so this is not a random stabbing,” Sgt. DB Gates told The White Center Blog. “They were arguing before the stabbing happened, and the argument was possibly over how or where one of them had parked a car.”

Major Crimes detectives have responded and will be processing the scene as well as working to locate the suspect.

“If anyone sees the above listed car we ask them to call 9-1-1,” Gates added.

Police do not have any further information on the status of the victim.
