And speaking

of dogs…

Dawn James of Lynnwood is looking for Wolfie.

Wolfie’s her 6-year-old gray and white dog, a Pomeranian. The last time she saw Wolfie was Saturday, Sept. 22 at around 6 p.m.

Witnesses told her they saw a dog matching Wolfie’s description at the intersection of 180th Street Southwest and Olympic View Drive.

“He was wearing a black collar with tags on it,” James said.

Wolfie weights about 9 pounds and is 9 inches tall. She said Wolfie’s on a special diet and could become ill without it.

She’s offering a $1,000 reward for his return, no questions asked and $200 for good leads. If you’ve seen a dog matching Wolfie’s description, contact James at 206-852-1170 or Lynnwood Police.

Turn a new leaf

at Terrace library

Last Leaf Productions presents a live performance of “The Musicians of Bremen,” at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Ave. W., at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 10.

This is the second in the Family Night at the Library Series sponsored by the Friends of the Mountlake Terrace Library. Admission is free.

This production of “The Musicians of Bremen” is a lively adaptation of the familiar Grimms fairy tale that will appeal to all ages.

The musicians are three pets discarded and deemed useless by their owners. They become friends through their common circumstances and their love of music.

The donkey, the cat, and the rooster decide to take up residence together. Soon a nasty bullying thief decides he would like to take over the house and claim it as his own. The animal friends band together and use their singing talents and teamwork to prevail. After a bit of a surprise ending, all ends happily. Gather your family together for this delightful and heartwarming night out together.

Last Leaf Productions is a local non-profit touring theatre company based in Monroe specializing in theatre for families and in productions of Shakespeare for parks and community events. For more information, call 425-776-8722.

CT ready with ‘double tall’ for Terrace riders

Community Transit’s double decker bus, The Double Tall, will run on the first afternoon trip of Route 408 from downtown Seattle to Mountlake Terrace from Oct. 1-14.

The bus will pick up passengers beginning at Fourth Street South and South Jackson Street in Seattle at 3:09 p.m. and arrives at 220th Southwest and West 58th at 3:49 p.m.

The Double Tall will continue to switch routes every two weeks throughout its first year of service. The bus typically makes one or two trips each weekday morning and afternoon, depending on the length of the trip. Since it began service on Aug. 1, the double decker has traveled on commuter routes to or from Lake Stevens, Lynnwood, Mukilteo and Stanwood.

From Oct. 1-14 The Double Tall will make morning runs on Routes 401 and 413 from Lynnwood to Seattle, as well as a late afternoon run on Route 401 back to Lynnwood. Riders can check The Double Tall’s schedule by visiting and clicking on “The Double Tall.”

Community Transit is just the second transit organization in the country to have a double decker bus in its regular service (Las Vegas was first). The Double Tall – which stands 14 feet tall and is 40 feet long – has 70 seats and standing capacity for 20 other riders on its lower deck.

Its hip-to-knee room in each seat is 31 inches, about three inches more than a standard commuter bus, and each seat comes equipped with its own reading light, air vent and stop signal button. The bus is also outfitted with top-of-the-line security features on both decks.
