At 2:08 p.m. – On the Case With Paddy Calabrese, PI (Archive from 9/7/07)
Private Investigation is a balance of truth and deceit. At least, that's the way Paddy Calabrese practiced it. In an archive from September 7th, 2007, we get to know an infamous character of Seattle through the life lesson he shared with one young man.

At 2:20 p.m. – Circus School
Jo Montgomery has seen a five–year old boy who's paralyzed from the waist down do a handstand. She's a nurse practitioner. But the little boy's handstand happened at the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts in South Seattle. Jo is the executive director of the school. She takes Jeannie Yandel on a tour of the school.
