Parades, parks, crime and local businesses: news from around the neighborhood:



Reports from around the Maple Leaf neighborhood:


Several residents and businesses are reportedly discussing a way to save the Third Annual Maple Leaf Parade of Costumes, which needs organizers before Halloween. Stay tuned.


Friends for a Greater Maple Leaf Park is raising money for needed equipment before the park opens in 2013. “While we don’t know everything to be included (or what will be left out) of the construction, we DO know the Family Terrace picnic shelter, completed sidewalks along 14th Avenue Northeast and Northeast 82nd Street, and the skate dot are currently unfunded.”

There’s a donation coupon in last week’s Maple Leaf newsletter, or email reservoirpark (at) mapleleafcommunity.org


Penny writes: “Burglary and petty theft seem to be on the rise. I personally have had three blankets stolen off my porch and have heard of numerous car issues. This subject should probably be looked into/passed around. Maybe a neighborhood watch group would be useful?”

Jarrett reports, on our Facebook page, another neighborhood exposing incident.

Also on Facebook, Liz reports “everyone should be aware that there seems to be a break-in problem on 15th around 89th.” She adds: “Please, keep your cars clear of anything interesting like bags or wires. Lock your door when you aren’t home. Let’s all keep an eye out for each other to help keep our neighborhood safe.

Andrea passed along a message thread indicating neighbors around Northeast 77th Street and 88th Avenue Northeast are in fact keeping a close watch for strangers and suspicious activity.


We’re getting quite a few kudos, both on our post and our Facebook page, for Patty’s Eggnest opening at the Northgate location where the Seattle Crab Co./La Bera Cafe/The Fine Diner used to be.

Doctors Elizabeth Smoots and Moira Fitzpatrick invite you to their Fall Open House at the North Seattle Professional Building two blocks south of Northgate Mall,  9739 Third Ave. N.E., Suite 202.

Their open house provides the opportunity to talk one-on-one with an integrative medical doctor (Dr. Smoots) and a naturopath (Dr. Fitzpatrick).  Plus they will be providing live Celtic harp music, healthy refreshments, and free samples of supplements.

The date is next Tuesday, Oct. 18th, from 4-7  p.m. Simply drop by, no RSVP is required.

North Seattle Community Acupuncture, 11329 Pinehurst Way N.E., announced it has teamed up with an international cooperative, the People’s Organization of Community Acupuncture.

In Community Acupuncture, patients rest in recliners in a shared space. Small, thin needles are placed in a patient’s lower legs, lower arms, and head in order to treat everything in between. A low fee allows more patients, regardless of income or insurance, to receive enough treatments to experience relief from chronic and acute stress and pain, as well as improvement in symptoms and root causes of illness and injury.
