Movies at the Beach July

This Saturday July 23rd at 9PM we will be showing The Goonies at the Beach on lower Edgewater

The Goonins PosterMikey Walsh and Brandon Walsh are brothers whose family is preparing to move because developers want to build a golf course in the place of their neighborhood — unless enough money is raised to stop the construction of the golf course, and that’s quite doubtful. But when Mikey stumbles upon a treasure map of the famed “One-Eyed” Willy’s hidden fortune, Mikey, Brandon, and their friends Lawrence “Chunk” Cohen, Clark “Mouth” Devereaux, Andrea “Andy” Carmichael, Stefanie “Stef” Steinbrenner, and Richard “Data” Wang, calling themselves The Goonies, set out on a quest to find the treasure in hopes of saving their neighborhood. The treasure is in a cavern, but the entrance to the cavern is under the house of evil thief Mama Fratelli and her sons Jake Fratelli, Francis Fratelli, and the severely disfigured Lotney “Sloth” Fratelli. Sloth befriends the Goonies and decides to help them.

Director: Richard Donner
Writers: Steven Spielberg (story), Chris Columbus (screenplay)

Tests show raccoons to blame for polluted Lofall Creek

LOFALL, Wash. (AP) – Raccoons are to blame for the pollution in a northwestern Washington creek.

The Kitsap Sun reports officials have been trying for more than a decade to solve the mystery behind fecal bacteria in Lofall Creek.

A recent collaboration with the University of Washington’s Tacoma-based Center for Urban Waters tested for compounds usually found in human waste that come from products like antibiotics.

The compounds were almost nonexistent in the creek. This pointed to an animal source that health officials tied to complaints of neighborhood raccoons.

Health officials hiked along the creek and found baby raccoons and plenty of feces along the banks.

The health district is planning an educational campaign to help residents deter the animals.
