Casting Director Linda Berger comes to the Pacific Northwest with more than 15 years casting experience, including over 100 episodes of television, more than 20 movies made for television, and numerous feature films.
Linda grew up surrounded by the entertainment industry. At the age of fourteen, when most children were relying on parental allowances, Linda went to work part-time learning the talent agency business from her mother, a professional talent agent and now a talent manager. Her father, also an entertainment industry veteran, was instrumental in opening Motown Records West Coast Office, and currently manages the legendary Temptations.
Following in her family's footsteps, Linda chose to devote herself to the entertainment industry. She now brings her twenty years of experience and knowledge to the Pacific Northwest acting community, as an instructor and speaker in casting and production.
However, 20 families a day are still turned away because there is not enough capacity at these shelters.
This move by The Starbucks Foundation, Schultz Family Foundation, Microsoft, and others supports an immediate expansion of Mary’s Place, and responds to the critical, short-term need to bring unsheltered families inside.
“No child should have to sleep outside at night. We must come together as a community to address this vital need as a local imperative,” said Brad Smith, Microsoft president.
“We are pledging $1 million, including $250,000 to Mary’s Place, to address homelessness across King County. We will support partners throughout the area to pursue both short- and long-term systemic solutions, including permanent housing.”
In addition to a $1 million financial contribution to the No Child Sleeps Outside campaign, The Starbucks Foundation will match every dollar donated by customers in participating King County Starbucks® stores between December 1st and 31st, up to an additional $1 million dollars to help shelter local families.

Reader Glenn C. sent in a question about the school district bond which will be on the February ballot.
The proposed tax says about $5 per assessed $1000. This year's total taxes were about $11 per $1000. If this is correct, the bond would increase our taxes by about 50%. That is $2000 on a $400,000 assessed value. Please explain.

If you are an X1 customer from Xfinity / Comcast, you probably weren't watching The Voice Monday evening.
Because of an unspecified national problem with the X1 platform, the entire Seattle / Tacoma service area had extremely limited services from about 9pm.
At our house, we had Channel 4 ABC - and that was it. Whatever channel you were on when the outage occurred was where you stayed.
Reportedly, the engineers are working on the system pole by pole and node by node. They think they will be back online by midnight.
Telephones and internet may have been affected in some areas.
