Apparently there were more than two dozen people who didn’t read Wednesday’s front-page story warning drivers that the Washington State Patrol is ticketing those who try to shortcut the onramp from Highway 527 onto southbound I-405.

Troopers spent about two hours Wednesday morning watching drivers and nabbed 26 people crossing the painted solid white lines that mark the triangular area where vehicles are forbidden. The infraction costs drivers at least $388.

Here’s your second warning: There will be additional patrols in various locations throughout the year, said trooper Kirk Rudeen.

Edmonds Community College will provide two sign language interpreters at its performance of “Our Town” at 7:30 tonight in the Triton Union Building, 20000 68th Ave. W., Lynnwood.

This is the first EdCC play for Travis Schumacher, a senior at Lynnwood High School who plays George Gibbs. He plans to attend EdCC next year and then transfer to a four-year college, perhaps in Los Angeles.

He is interested in a career in acting and is fluent in sign language as both of his parents are deaf. For more information, call 425-640-1313.
