Early Saturday morning there were those out in the snow who were working serving others.

Just minutes later mailman Steve Kinsman, aka Frosty, was making a delivery on 20th Ave NW.

Steve has been working this route for years. If you are near the mailbox when he comes past he will always greet you with a big smile and a friendly comment. In a couple of months Steve will have been a postal employee for forty years. He is really an outstanding individual.

And Friday, the Shoreline Police were on the job, responding to a bank robbery at the US Bank inside the North City Safeway. They brought in a tracking K9 but were unable to locate the robber. It was all over so quickly that most shoppers did not even realize there was a problem.
