Ribbon Cutting for Advertiser Home Helpers will be this Saturday, July 26


President of Home Helpers & Direct Link of South King County, Joey Sposari.

A ribbon cutting ceremony for new Advertiser Home Helpers and Direct Link of South King County will be held this Saturday, July 26 at 11:30 a.m. at their new location at 213 SW 160th Street in Burien, and all are invited.

Home Helpers & Direct Link of South King County is an in-home care provider service specializing in senior care, respite care, and companion care, offering light housekeeping, grocery shopping, meal preparation, laundry, medication reminders, prescription pick-up, errands, escort to doctors, personal emergency response systems and much more.

Ranked #1 in Senior Care, they employ a team of CNA’s and caregivers that are local, experienced and compassionate.

Normandy Park resident and President of Home Helpers & Direct Link of South King County, Joey Sposari, tells us:

“My interest in in-home care started as I watched my in-laws’ health decline. My wife did the best she could to care for them – I could see the love and compassion she had – but it was difficult. Through my personal experience, I realize the enormous need there is in assisting and caring for people in the comfort of their own homes.”

Home Helpers & Direct Link of South King County offers free in-home consultations and work closely with each client to create a flexible and affordable care plan based on individual needs. Home Helpers’ full-range of home care services empower seniors to live healthier and more rewarding lives in the privacy, safety, and comfort of their own homes.

“More than caregivers, we are family.” ~ Joey Sposari/President

The Sposari family has resided in West Seattle and surrounding areas for more than 60 years, and during that time the entire family belongs to and is active with Holy Rosary Church. Joey and his siblings went to Kennedy High and have a strong sense of community. The family still gets together at Joey’s parents house in West Seattle every Sunday for “pasta with Ma”. Family is extremely important to Joey, who adds:

“For me personally, being in the Home Care field gives me a certain sense of family, because our caregivers become an extension of family for so many by enabling people to live their life in the comfort of their own homes and retain their independence, just like one big happy family.”

Benefit screening of local UFO film for Discover Burien will be Friday, Aug. 1

A benefit screening of the locally-produced UFO film “The Maury Island Incident” for Discover Burien will take place on Friday night, Aug. 1 at the Tin Theater, starting at 7 p.m.

“The Maury Island Incident” is a 30-minute film that tells the forgotten, tragic story – taken directly from declassified FBI documents – of Harold Dahl’s June 21, 1947 UFO sighting near Maury Island, and the first reported ‘Man In Black’ encounter that happened to him the very next day.

Each screening will be followed by a Q&A session with Filmmakers.

The film – which was shot in Burien (at the Tin Room!), Des Moines, Tukwila and off the shores of Maury Island during the summer of 2013 – had its world premiere at the Big Island Film Festival in May, and its North American premiere at the Seattle International Film Festival. It was awarded the competitive Washington FilmWorks Innovation Lab funding during production.

It has also been accepted to both the Port Townsend and Burbank Film Festivals, where it will screen in September.

Directed/Produced by Scott Schaefer from a script by Writer/Producer Steve Edmiston, it features Seattle-area actors Tony Doupé, Allen Fitzpatrick, John Patrick Lowrie, David S. Hogan and many others. It was Executive Produced by John White, and Produced by Scott and Laura Beth Peterson and Danny House.

Here’s a brief review from noted paranormal/UFO radio host Clyde Lewis:

“The tension in this film is so thick you can cut it with a knife. The Maury Island Incident captures a moment in time long forgotten by most UFO researchers. It also reopens those Cold War feelings that are nothing but a forgotten memory in the post 9/11 era. Bravo!”

Tickets are $10 each – and are available for online purchase by credit/debit card here – and proceeds will benefit local business non-profit organization Discover Burien.

Screenings will be held hourly, starting at 7 p.m. (then again at 8, 9, 10 & 11 p.m.), followed by a Q&A session with filmmakers.

Collectible t-shirts and posters for the film will also be on sale in the lobby.

The Tin Theater is located at 923 SW 152nd Street.
