Skyline grad uses art to pay it forward
Karan Sunil’s infatuation with art began at an early age, and he’s developed his gifts to the point where one of the most prestigious schools in the country wants him to study there.
Sunil, who graduated from Skyline High School in June, will soon be headed to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he plans to work toward an art production career in film or television.
“I don’t know yet whether that’s animation, whether that’s storyboarding or character design,” he said. “That’s something I’ll have to discover and figure out.”

The King County Prosecutor’s Office announced May 8 it did not find sufficient cause to charge former Seattle Seahawk Leroy Hill with a felony after he was arrested in January on allegations of domestic violence.
Prosecutor’s Office spokesman Dan Donohoe said the case would now be referred to the city prosecutor in Issaquah for a decision on whether there will be a misdemeanor charge filed.
Hill played the past eight seasons with the Seahawks as a linebacker, but is now an unrestricted free agent and remains unsigned.

Prosecutors could charge Leroy Hill for domestic violence-related crimes, after Issaquah police arrested the Seattle Seahawks linebacker for assaulting and imprisoning a woman.
Officers responded to Hill’s Talus home along Cougar Ridge Drive Northwest at about 4 p.m. Jan. 29. Hill’s girlfriend, a 26-year-old Issaquah woman, said he had assaulted her numerous times since about 10:30 a.m. She told police he stood on her head and chest, struck her with a bottle of alcohol and punched her as many as 20 times.
She said Hill, 30, blocked the doorway, did not allow her to leave the home and took her cellphone, court documents state. The woman escaped from the residence when he went to the bathroom.
