9/22/21: WHERE’S GEORGE?
Sep 21st, 2021 by Clark Humphrey

Recalling a scandalous 1935 kidnapping case; 30 years of a Seattle ‘alternative’ institution; the city eviction moratorium’s extended until mid-January; no more ‘764-HERO’ (the phone hotline, not the local band).

6/28/21: HOT-OSITY
Jun 28th, 2021 by Clark Humphrey

It’s beyond swelter-y out there, just in time to keep folks home who’d been aching to get out and about at last; other things also happened.

6/11/21: EVERYBODY LOVES OUR TOWN
Jun 10th, 2021 by Clark Humphrey

A big new online encyclopedia of NW hiphop; the Puyallup Fair’s on for this year; several building unions back the Sawant recall drive; (faint) praise for (some) street chaos.

3/10/21: SURPLUSSED
Mar 9th, 2021 by Clark Humphrey

Belltown’s beloved surplus store to become an electric-truck showroom; who is and isn’t in a list of historic WA women; Seattle schools have another in-person start date; Gonzaga basketball has some drama before winning another title.

1/13/21 THE BELLS’ FINAL TOLL
Jan 13th, 2021 by Clark Humphrey

Two Bells demolished three years after it closed; SPOG head Mike Solan refuses to quit; activists claim the FBI had a role in suppressing local summer protests; a post-COVID national recession could make homelessness a whole lot worse.

12/11/20: IT’S (SORTA) CHRISTMAS TIME IN THE CITY
Dec 10th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

A quiet, (very) socially distanced holiday time; COVID cases cancel a UW football game (and maybe the rest of the season); 45 percent of state’s restaurants could fold within a year; new push for NW light rail.

11/25/20: HOW DO YOU MAKE AN ELEPHANT DISAPPEAR?
Nov 24th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Iconic car-wash sign gone; another one-day COVID case record as hospitals fill up; a unionization drive at an Alabama Amazon warehouse; what Thanksgiving means this year (or could).

11/17/20: WHAT A CROC
Nov 16th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

The Crocodile’s hosted its last live show at 2nd Ave but will eventually reopen on 1st; (potentially big) restaurant layoffs follow new state restrictions; Tim Eyman goes on trial; you don’t have to hoard toilet paper (again).

7/28/20: ONLINE TRACKING
Jul 27th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

A virtual Sound-hugging ride on Sounder North; a slightly bigger (but still smaller than last year) transit tax passes the City Council; Sounders exit the MLS tourney; a plan to help save live-music venues needs your support.

7/3/20: A BELL, SILENCED TOO SOON
Jul 2nd, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Remembering the late local rocker Tina Bell; Seattle Police are STILL using pepper spray and flash bangs; WA’s highest one-day record of new COVID cases; a brief thought on dealing with the nation you’ve got.

2/26/20: ON, AND ‘OFF,’ THE WALL
Mar 25th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

Art-ifying boarded up storefronts; one news station balks at re-spreading official lies; the city’s spacing shelter beds further apart; you can now get food and (some) drinks to go from the same places.

3/11/20: GETTIN’ MIGHTY UN-CROWDED
Mar 11th, 2020 by Clark Humphrey

The state may ban all 250-or-more local public gatherings; there’s no WA presidential primary winner yet; Boeing workers split on latest contract offer; at least it’s a great time to take a quiet urban bike ride.

11/20/19: MACH MY WORD
Nov 20th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Supersonic jets (at least prototypes) could fly here again; a Showbox buyout offer (terms undisclosed); a possible Children’s Hospital mold infection case from 2005; parents of special-needs kids are advised to move out of the state.

10/28/19: COMING NORTH, BRINGING CULTURE
Oct 27th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

The new Sea Mar Museum showcases NW Latinx heritage; Sawant gets Council colleagues’ support; ICE is detaining kids in a “secret” southwest WA facility; Microsoft gets that big Pentagon cloud contract instead of Amazon.

9/29/19: JAMS, NOT PRESERVED
Sep 27th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Tula’s Jazz Club shutters; Intiman Theatre might not be saved after all; more new (weird) Amazon Echo/Alexa products are introduced; can we wish away the “tech bro”?
