The Department of Social and Health Services has revoked the license of an adult family home in Kirkland for allegedly allowing a resident to wander outside in the cold and failing to tell anyone the resident was missing, among other violations.
According to DSHS, the privately operated Vlasie Camelia Adult Family Home at 13327 119th Ave. N.E. also failed to have a negotiated care plan for a resident, gave false statements to state complaint investigators, hospital personnel and law enforcement; and failed to have a call system available for residents to notify caregivers that they needed assistance.
The operator has the right to contest the revocation.
Dunn to seek council position in NovemberMetropolitan King County Councilman Reagan Dunn, who was appointed earlier this month to fill state Attorney General Rob McKenna’s old council seat, has announced that he will run for election in November.
Dunn, a Republican from the 6th District, will run for a seat in the 9th District when the county’s current 13 districts are reduced to nine districts with new boundaries. He will run against Councilman Steve Hammond, R-Enumclaw.
Dunn, the son of former U.S. Rep. Jennifer Dunn, worked as an assistant U.S. attorney for the terrorism and violent-crime unit of the Justice Department. He said his campaign will focus on opposition to the critical-areas ordinance, increasing transportation connections between suburban cities, and improving the King County elections system.
Police to raise funds for Special OlympicsRedmond police are hoping the public will come up with enough donations next Friday to bail two officers out of their self-imposed imprisonment on a grocery-store roof.
The “Cop on Top” fund raiser at the QFC store at 8867 161st Ave. N.E. in Redmond is designed to raise money for local Special Olympics programs.
A firetruck will lift the two officers to the store roof, where they will dangle buckets to the ground with fishing poles to entice shoppers to give. The police department is hoping the officers will collect more than $6,000 by the end of their 12-hour effort.
