So grab a blanket, pack a picnic and bring the entire family to enjoy live – and FREE – entertainment outdoors at this great summer concert series.

There are two concert venues this year with concerts on both Wednesday and Thursday evenings.

In addition to concerts at Lake Burien School Park, there will also be three concerts at North Seatac Park. Starting on Wednesday, July 16, it is the soulful country sound of The Joy Mills Band, led by Seattle songwriter, Joy Mills. We think you’ll also agree that it wouldn’t be a summer concert series without some Latin music. The band Grupo Son performs the acoustic music of the Cuban countryside, considered to be one of the primary roots of modern salsa.

Summer concerts are held on Wednesday and Thursday evenings, from July 10 through Aug. 14, 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. Wednesday concerts are at North SeaTac Park, while Thursday concerts are at Lake Burien School Park. North SeaTac Park is located at S. 128th Street & Des Moines Memorial Drive. Lake Burien School Park is located at SW 148th Street and 16th Ave SW.

See you at the park!

A charge of ‘Manslaughter in the First Degree’ was filed last week against a cargo handler at Sea-Tac Airport who allegedly slapped a co-worker who later died, according to the King County Prosecutor’s Office.

The defendant, Taumailelei Mapusua Jr., was involved in a verbal dispute with an airline employee on July 5 in a cargo area of the airport. The defendant allegedly slapped the other man. When the victim fell, the back of his head hit concrete.

Mapusua, 27, remains in jail with bail set at $1 million.

Arraignment is scheduled for July 23 at the King County Courthouse.

A stabbing injured one man at Angle Lake shortly before 8 p.m. in SeaTac Saturday night, July 12.

Police say this crime was possibly gang-related.

“Very few if any persons involved wanted to cooperate with police so there isn’t any suspect information,” Sgt. DB Gates of the King County Sheriff’s Office told The SeaTac Blog.

The investigation is ongoing.

“As I’m guessing you know, most serious crimes that occur are never reported in the media,” Gates added. “The fact they chose not to report on the SeaTac incident is their choice.”

You probably heard numerous – and serious – helicopters around Burien on Thursday (July 10), as a multi-agency disaster drill was held at Sea-Tac Airport, and Photographer Francis Zera was on hand to take these photos:

As we previously reported:

Eight evacuation helicopters, more than 175 emergency vehicles and 300 victim volunteers are scheduled to be part of the exercise, simulating an aircraft accident at the airport. The Port of Seattle is organizing region-wide emergency response partners and incorporating lessons learned from last year’s aircraft incident in San Francisco for this disaster preparedness and response exercise required every three years by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

For the first time, the port will include in this year’s exercise multiple helicopter agencies to practice potential patient air evacuations. This comes on the heels of lessons learned from the SFO Asiana accident in July of 2013. Airlift agencies scheduled to participate include the U.S. Coast Guard from Port Angeles and Astoria, Oregon, U.S. Navy Air Station Whidbey Island, Washington Air National Guard – Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Snohomish County Sheriff, King County Sheriff, and Airlift Northwest.

Up to 300 volunteers will participate as ‘victims’ next to the Port of Seattle Fire Department’s mock aircraft fuselage which will be located on the north end of the western-most runway (designated as 16R/34L, or locally known as the third runway). Volunteers will arrive at approximately 5 a.m. for moulage (or make-up) to represent a variety of injuries that will test medical care triage practices.

Dozens of the King County area mutual aid police and fire agencies will participate in the exercise with an estimated 50 -75 pieces of equipment from fire engines to aid cars and up to 175 fire fighters. Additional police officers from the area are also expected to participate alongside first responders from the Port of Seattle Fire and Police Departments, Sea-Tac Airport Security, Airport Operations, Public Information and the Port Environmental team.

In addition, other key exercise participants will include airport and airline representatives, the FAA, Red Cross, King County Emergency Management Division, and the King County Medical Examiner.

A comprehensive report will be prepared post-exercise to identify any gaps in emergency plans and then prioritize follow-up corrective actions.

Inquiries or concerns should be directed to the Port of Seattle Fire Department at 787.5327 or fire@portseattle.org.
