    Woodland Park Zoo's twin sloth bear cubs, born on Dec. 27, remain off view in the maternal den with 14-year-old mom, Tasha, but the zoo has provided a short clip of the family. Zoo staff are monitoring the babies through a live web cam to make sure they are thriving.

– SUBWAY BIKE ROBBERY: Police responded to the 4500 block of 9th Ave. NW on Tuesday night for a report of a robbery. According to the scanner, the Subway was robbed at gunpoint, and the suspect was seen escaping on… one of those green rental bikes. (Thanks Silver for the tip.)

– FREMONT OFFICE: That prominent Fremont corner where Stone, 34th and Northlake come together — right next to the Burke Gilman trail — will become the site of a new office development. It will feature a pass-through for pedestrian and cyclists and a rooftop deck.

    Briefs: Thunder, mystery noise, Subway bike robbery, Captain America and more...
    THUNDER: Did you hear all the thunder last night? A lightning strike was detected in Wallingford near the QFC, but no damage was reported. There were no strikes detected in the Ballard area. - MYSTERY NOISE: My Ballard reader Noreen sent us a note asking about all the noise near 65th and 24th in the morning hours.

If you were wondering why there was a group of about 30 people standing at the corner of North 67th Street and 1st Avenue NW at 7:30 this morning, it’s because neighbors were throwing a retirement party of sorts for Mary Anne Kelly on her last day of work.
