Many people who encounter Mikael Moore, the chief of staff for Rep. Maxine Waters, see a typical Capitol Hill aide: a young, serious, BlackBerry-toting workaholic in a business suit with an intense belief in the importance of his work. If they know he is also Waters' grandson, making him a rarity in Congress, it is not because he talks about it much, if at all. Colleagues say Moore rarely offers information about his family connection, and that they have instead come to know him as a talented, politically gifted peer who has brought order to a sometimes tangled office and quickly grasped the intricacies of Washington.

Four Seattle-area police officers were shot to death Sunday morning in a coffee shop in what officials called a brazen ambush by a lone gunman. At least one officer apparently fought his way to the coffee shop door and returned fire, possibly wounding the shooter, authorities said. The shooter is likely to seek medical treatment for a gunshot wound, officials said. The officers, three men and a woman attached to the Lakewood Police Department, were conducting a routine pre-shift briefing over their laptops at the Forza Coffee Shop in Parkland, Wash.

I got back from Seattle dead tired from the flight. I know, I know, it's just 2½ hours, but I was seated in front of a family traveling with at least four screaming kids. (And I was unlucky enough to have been on the same flight with them going out as well!) I was starving. I set down my bags and pulled out the loaf of bread I'd bought at Sitka & Spruce , which my friend Roberta claimed was the best in the city. Must be, because the four of us devoured an entire loaf before dinner at her house.
A Washington state schoolteacher who last month pleaded guilty to having sex with a 13-year-old student whose child she bore in May said she had hoped to hide her family identity throughout the ordeal because her father, former Orange County Republican Rep. John Schmitz, is dying of cancer. "It's a tragedy that this came out about me before his death," Mary Kay LeTourneau, one of Schmitz's eight children, told the Seattle Times in an emotional interview from jail in Kent, Wash. "He has cancer.

Dorothy Berkoff walked with a pack of neighborhood dogs onto wind-swept Eagle Point on San Juan Island and shook her head. "I don't like it," she said. "We didn't think about the fact that someone owns this land. Lots of people have utilized this as public for years. I guess we shouldn't have taken it for granted." The tip of Eagle Point, 7 acres of rock outcroppings and grassy knolls without a tree in sight, now exhibits survey markers for a 4,000-square-foot house, and there's a new road cutting through trails made by generations of visitors.

Dale Ellis of the Seattle SuperSonics says his marriage may become stronger as the result of his arrest in a domestic dispute last week. "The whole thing was blown out of proportion," Ellis told the Seattle Times. "That's what happens when you're in the public eye. You're under a microscope. You have to do the right thing all of the time. "That's the sad thing about it. I don't really want to discuss what happened. It's kind of personal. A little embarrassing.

To the Editor of the Seattle Times: With all the property we Californians are buying in your city, it would be normal to expect some resentment. We would expect, therefore, for you to go after some of our athletic stars. Magic would fit well into your backcourt, or maybe Eddie Murray in your infield, but Benoit Benjamin? Perhaps you haven't heard. Ben has been a six-year project with the Clippers, a failed experiment. Ben is the one who arrived at a game with two left shoes.
