Life just looks better from here. You’ll find few places offering you possibilities for creativity, action and involvement all at one community. Fewer still that offer all levels of living – also at one community. When found together, that’s Judson Park, the sound choice for senior living. Who we are is as much a part of our fabric as what we are: • Residential living for independent-minded people seeking a strong sense of community • Short-stay rehabilitation and respite programs – open to the general public through direct admission • On-site assisted living, memory support and long-term nursing care • A robust, opportunity-rich lifestyle for those who aspire toward successful aging • Accredited by CARF-CCAC for meeting strict national standards for quality services – less than one in five communities can say this

Look at life from a Judson Park point of view. Start by calling 1-866-909-8850 or visiting ExperienceJudson.com.

Judson Park in Des Moines, Washington, is managed by ABHOW, a California nonprofit public benefit corporation. ABHOW is a nonsectarian corporation, serving seniors through quality retirement housing since 1949. License #BH-681, DHS #797.

2016 Renton Residents’ Guide

Welcome! Thanks for reading! Greetings! Welcome to the 2016 edition of the Renton Reporter’s annul Residents Guide! My name is Brian Beckley and I am the editor of your local newspaper, the Renton Reporter, which proudly covers all the news, features and sports this city has to offer every week. Located along the southern shores of Lake Washington, Renton is a fun diverse city with plenty of business opportunities, great places to eat and shop and a whole slew of fun events all throughout the year. This city has great parks, playgrounds, ballfields and other recreational facilities – like the Henry Moses Aquatic Center – as well as nationally recognized schools and hospitals, not to mention one of the largest employers in the Puget Sound Region, Boeing, where Renton workers continue to turn out 737s, the most popular commercial airline in the world, at an amazing rate. Did you know that every 20 seconds somewhere in the world a 737 – put together right here in North Renton – either takes off or lands? Pretty cool, huh? Along with Boeing, Renton is home to PACCAR Parts, PACCAR Technology and Kenworth truck factory. We’ve also got a bunch of smaller businesses that are each leaders in their field, like Wizards of the Coast and Fry’s Electronics and Lone Shark Games. We have a ton of great shopping opportunities as well, from the area’s only IKEA store (currently being re-built as a Brian Beckley
