Briefs: Locks, Salmon, Sushi, Elks, Lagunitas

We have a few news tidbits to share, beginning with the Ballard Locks. (Tilt-shift photo above is from the US Army Corps of Engineers on Facebook).

BALLARD LOCKS: The Seattle Times has put together a good in-depth look at why the Locks needs $30 million to $60 million in major repairs and upgrades. (Here’s our earlier story).

FEED THE SALMON: Seattle Parks is looking for volunteers who can help feed the salmon (baby salmon!) at Carkeek Park on a weekly basis.

BALLARD SUSHI: The chef of Shiku Sushi in Ballard, JP Kim, is bringing sushi to Magnolia. He bought Oliver’s Twist to turn it into a sushi restaurant, opening in February, according to Seattle Mag. Don’t worry Shiku fans, Kim will remain in Ballard.

ELKS SCHOLARSHIPS: The Ballard Elks Lodge is offering vocational scholarships for the first time: two students graduating high school (or getting their GED) this year will be awarded $1,000 or more. Interested? Here are the details.

LAGUNITAS GRANTS: Lagunitas Brewing Company plans to award grants up to $5,000 for qualifying nonprofit organizations. Want to apply? Learn more right here.

  1. – El Camion: Ballard’s best food truck has moved the other other side of 15th Ave, and one block south. The old parking lot is being redeveloped as a dentist’s office. Their website does not yet reflect the new address.
