After a one week hiatus, Mitch Unfiltered, the podcast by Mitch Levy will return Monday August 10th with an interview with Olympic Speed Skater Apolo Ohno. Ohno, the most decorated US athlete in Winter Olympic History, was raised in Seattle by a single father. Ohno was also a winner in Dancing With The Stars in 2007.
Levy has expressed his lack of interest in Olympic sports, however, a documentary on mental health problems often faced by Olympic athletes called The Weight Of Gold will soon show on HBO. Those are issues that Levy has focused on the podcast.

I guess I "became a man" 50 years ago, today. My Bar Mitzvah was July 8th, 1970 at the old Congregation Beth Israel (top picture) on Rose And Tucannon in Walla Walla. A reception took place afterwards at the Royal Motor Inn, across the street. Bottom picture, I'm posing with Grandmother Barer's family at the Royal Motor Inn.

A two alarm fire, not too far from our house, brought emergency vehicles to Maple Valley's Daybreak neighborhood. A grass fire had gotten out of control and would wind up destroying an abandoned house, some building structures and some vehicles. These were near, but not part of Daybreak.
KIRO 7 reports 24 units and 50 firefighters responded to the blaze. The billowing smoke was visible from our yard and a helicopter circled above.
