A reporter interviews some of the students who named Bertha, the SR 99 tunneling machine. The students, soon-to-be sixth-graders from Poulsbo Elementary School, were recognized during a public dedication ceremony for the machine on July 20, 2013. Bertha's name - a tribute to former Seattle Mayor Bertha Knight Landes - was chosen in December 2012 as part of a contest for kindergarten through 12th-grade students.
