  • St. Alphonsus School reviewed by a parent

    The school is okay. That's all. We're transferring our child to the local public school, which is highly rated in our area. If you're Catholic you'll find value in the religious education, but STEM is lacking. School is old, no real technology to speak of. It's silly to pay $9,000 per year, when you can get a better education for free through Seattle Public.

    Park at the Ballard Locks will close due to government shutdown
    While the Ballard Locks continue to operate, the Army Corps of Engineers says the park grounds will be closed beginning tomorrow - until funding is restored. That means cyclists and walkers won't have the ability or access or go through the park.

Power outage in Ballard and Magnolia

Power is also out at Ballard’s busiest intersection, at 15th and Market St. “Just tried to get through the intersection of 15th and Market with no traffic lights and dodging a zillion lanes of impatient drivers and buses in all directions,” says Jillian on My Ballard’s Facebook page.
