The owners of the historic Alki Homestead restaurant plan to sell the eatery to a husband and wife chefs living in the Fauntleroy area.

Co-owner Tom Lin said if the sale goes through, the new owners will take over the restaurant early next year and possibly close it down for remodeling for several months. But, said Lin, the name and the tradition of the Homestead will not change.

"It has been very challenging for me the past few years as I am not a restauranteur," Lin said.

As decisions for the design of the Aurora Bridge suicide-prevention barrier near, committee representatives from neighborhoods around the bridge are still hesitant about the options aimed to deter possible jumpers.

Continuing the discussion of what treatment will be chosen for the top of the barrier, at last week's advisory meeting the committee split the top treatments into cap, pickets, straight finial and tube.

In 2006, a record high of nine people jumped from the Aurora Bridge.

WAYS TO STOP AURORA BRIDGE JUMPERS. Ruling out the cap and tube top treatment designs due to the possible assistance they may give jumpers, the Aurora Bridge Advisory Committee is leaning towards the pickets or straight finials which have the best options for both a physical and visual deterrent on the top of the bridge's future suicide barrier.
