Jen and Jason with baby Oona live only a few blocks from us up Avenue C in a historic home built around the 1900s, quite possibly earlier. Jen practices yoga with Karen who feels privileged to have watched Jen’s body change as baby Oona grew. Oona is an Anglicisation of the Irish-language name Úna. It’s a name made famous by Eugene O’Neill’s daughter, who became Charlie Chaplin’s wife. (Got to love the internets.)
September 13, the Snohomish Networking Women met at Karen’s studio AngelArmsWorks in the renovated St. Michael Church at 3rd and Avenue B for their monthly meeting. As is the custom, the host is given the stage to talk about their work and Karen talk about the city’s successes over the nine years she as served on council and her current run for mayor. The following sequence of images is of Karen explaining the struggle to find the middle way as a leader.

And Karen’s in the middle.
Snohomish bid farewell to now Captain Flood and welcomed Lt. Keith Rogers as our new Chief of Police effective today. John Flood was promoted to Captain and reassigned to oversee the sheriff’s office north and south precincts.
Karen and Captain Flood bonded when as mayor Karen promoted contracting our police services with the county and Flood was the first Chief of Police. That was an emotional time in January 2012, losing our independent police force, but it has proven a sound decision with both better service while saving $800,000 a year.
