Some history lessons for the Fourth of July | Pat Cashman

Can you spot the sentence that is not contained within our nation’s Declaration of Independence? • “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal.” • “We mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred honor.” • “Can I get some more mustard on this wiener?”

Bellevue teenager sheds ‘Jewish-style afro’ for Locks of Love

Wherever 15-year-old Robby Weltman goes, the bushy brown ball of hair nested on the top of his head has raised eyebrows. While in London with his family last summer, a tour bus pulled up alongside Robby and stopped. Tourists stared. “The tour guide said, ‘If you look to the left, you’ll see an example of London hair,” recalled Robby, an Interlake High School junior. “I’m the example of local flavor - no matter where I go.” Besides evoking curiosity, the curly 12-inch mass that Robby refers to as a “Jewish-style afro” also has been a source of annoyance.

Robert Johnson  heard his calling

New Mormon president to oversee many south Bellevue congregations

Robert Johnson had heard the words spoken so vividly that he looked up because he thought somebody was in the room. He has heard smaller voices before. They have told him to do something, or go to someone’s house because they were in trouble - but nothing as distinct as the time he was called to be bishop for the Newport Ward of more than 350 people.
