The recently remodeled grocery store will revert to its original name -- Admiral Thriftway. "I made a mistake," said co- owner Terry Halverson. "I really didn't think there'd be that much response."

DCLU's correction notice to'the Port states that these changes are consistent with an agreement between the city and the Port called the Duwamish Public Shoreline Access Plan.

The Port needed the street ends so it could sell the prop- erty to companies being nudged off Harbor Island due to the expansion of Terminal 18. DURING THE past year, the Port of Seattle built river-viewing platforms, laid pathways and land- scaped T- 107.
