Lost a bike or Ford key this week?

Posted by Mai Ling on September 21st, 2013

We received a couple of emails from readers about items lost in the past week.

Emily Irwin with North Seattle Orthopedic & Community Acupuncture, 11329 Pinehurst Way N.E., told us:

On Monday someone locked a bike up to our bike rack but has not come back to get it since. It isn’t it great shape but we were wondering if you could post something on your blog asking the owner to come pick it up? It almost seems as if it is stolen because it does not look rideable but the odd thing is that it is locked up. We have a very small bike rack and we need to be able to accommodate our patients who are cyclists. If we do not find the owner soon we will need to move the bike.

If you think the bike might be yours, call the clinic at (206) 524-6428.

Reader Tamara Oki also emailed us about a Ford key and remote lock control, shown at left, that she found Wednesday on 15th Avenue Northeast between 82nd Street and 85th Street. Email her at for more information.

    Maple Leaf made the news on Friday about the new bike lanes on Roosevelt.

    I think people were probably laughing or talking about crappy it would be to live along that stretch of Roosevelt. I have not met a single person that thinks that bike lane is a good idea. The only people that think its a good idea are the few bike riders than will use and McGinn. Everyone else thinks its a terrible idea, including myself. Catering to the few at the expense of many is the biggest downfall of this city.

    McGinn could be the worst mayor in history. He talks about mental health being a crisis in this city after the Sounders person gets stabbed as an attempt to drive re-election support. How about taking the 36 million he has spent on bike lanes and bike related studies and applying that to mental health issues. Maybe pioneer square wouldn’t be digressing into the drug, homeless, cess pool that it tried so hard to clean up years ago.

    I think the new bike lanes on Roosevelt will punish drivers more than helping anybody. I wish the Community Council would represent the views of drivers, who make up the majority of Maple Leaf residents.

    “I think the new bike lanes on Roosevelt will punish drivers more than helping anybody.”

    Clearly you’ve never driven NBound up Roosevelt behind a bicyclist going slowly up the steep hill. This will be safer for cyclists and much faster for drivers.

    ” I have not met a single person that thinks that bike lane is a good idea.”

    Must not get out much?

    This is just another wrong mayoral policy. The Mayor knows that he is not going to be reelected and he is trying hard to implement his agenda before he is out. The bike line on Roosevelt will create unhappy neighbors and a big traffic mess.
