    **On January 20th, Byron Barnes, 47, was found dead outside in a parking lot in Ballard (at 1764 NW 56th). The cause of his death is pending. Mr Barnes had many friends and will be dearly missed.

    **Then, in the early morning hours of January 25th, the body of Kathryn Ann Blair, 60, was found near the 1200 block of Rainier Avenue South by one of the One Night Count street-count teams. Heartbreakingly, the cause of her death was hypothermia. (2,736 people were found outside, without shelter, on the night of the Count, a five percent increase over the previous year's Count.)

    WHEEL Women in Black will stand vigil for Mr Barnes and Ms Blair from noon to 1 PM next Wednesday, February 6th, outside the Seattle Justice Center at 5th and Cherry.
