"Thanks to Christina Parish at Kenmore Self Storage for being so patient while helping me move my mother's belongings into storage"

Posted by: Luann Jackman, Northshore Y


"I want to thank the Staples in Bothell for all of their help with my new smart phone. Their mobile consultant, Jason, helped me select a phone at a great price, set it up, transfer all of my information and he even called a week later to see if I had any questions or needed help using any of the features. I am more than impressed!"

Bothell Youth Court Launch Celebration

Bothell Youth Court Logo

You are invited to attend the launch celebration of the Bothell Youth Court. BYC is a collaborative effort of the City of Bothell Municipal Court and University of Washington Bothell. High school students are in charge of their own courtroom in legal proceedings for traffic infractions committed by teens in the community. The students are the judge, prosecutor, defense attorney, bailiff and jury.

By empowering teens, youth courts have proven to be a powerful restorative justice model that encourages creativity and prepares teens for the future. The court also fosters community interest in safety, efficiency and civic engagement. Bothell Youth Court will officially begin hearing cases in February 2013.


The celebration will include refreshments and a mock youth court hearing created and staged by our teen participants. We encourage your attendance and appreciate your support of BYC. 


Parking Information: Parking pass is available per your request.
The South Parking Garage is the assigned parking garage for this event.

Moscoso to Vice-Chair Transportation Committee  

From the look of his committee assignments, Rep. Luis Moscoso's second term in the House of Representatives will be very busy, but he's no longer the new kid on the block.


The Mountlake Terrace Democrat is no stranger to transportation issues; his stellar work in that committee the past two years was decisive in his reappointment, but as one of three vice chairs this time around.
