Marine Corps 2nd Lt. Jeffrey R. Northey, son of Robert Northey of Bellevue, recently graduated from the United States Naval Academy and was commissioned as an officer in the United States Marine Corps.
Six people, including a Bellevue man, were indicted by a Federal Grand Jury in Seattle on Wednesday for Conspiracy and Wire Fraud in connection with an estimated $8.5 million mortgage fraud scheme conducted in 2004 and 2005. Those indicted include a lawyer (since disbarred), a former bank loan officer and a mortgage broker, as well as the owner of shell companies involved in “flipping” dozens of properties as part of the fraud.
A recent audit of public records requests of Washington’s 30 largest cities, counties and state agencies found Bellevue to be fully responsive and already performing in a manner consistent with many recommended best practices.
Legislators representing Western Washington once again took the steps needed to win the Move It walking challenge presented by Regence Blueshield. Bellevue Sen. Rodney Tom (48th District) walked away with the bronze medal, taking third place for logging 315,201 steps over a six-week period.
A rental car, apparently lost in the area, was traveling northbound in the 3600 block of Evergreen Point Road when it veered off the roadway and struck a large rock, Medina police report. The accident occurred at about 2:20 a.m. on Thursday, June 19.
For 61-year-old Bruce Watson, living with cancer has become a race against time.
The Bellevue resident was first diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma in 2005, an incurable cancer that begins in the blood cells and later affects the bones. He has since endured a rigorous schedule of hospital visits and treatments, meant to prolong his health.
Although the diagnosis has altered his life, it has not slowed him down. An avid walker, he has participated in previous cancer walks and now plans to walk side by side with family and friends in this year’s Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
