May 16th, 2022 by Clark Humphrey

Ex-Lava Lounge building nears its doom; thousands of gas-station sites need cleaning up; ex-cop who longed for the old days of lynchings gets his job back; more than 60 sexual-abuse claims at the ICE jail in Tacoma.

May 9th, 2022 by Clark Humphrey

Rejected, more elaborate ’62 World’s Fair plans; another big encampment sweep’s pending; Ballard High student wins $3 million settlement in sexual-abuse case; Starbucks union drives seen as models for other workers.

3/24/22: AFTER THE SLIDE
Mar 22nd, 2022 by Clark Humphrey

Remembering the 2014 Oso landslide and its victims; more questions, but not more answers in the China 737 crash; the Broadway and Denny Starbucks will unionize; Seattle Pride declines Amazon’s money.

3/11/22: CLOSING TIME IN FRELARD
Mar 10th, 2022 by Clark Humphrey

Hale’s Brewpub and Palladium to close; Legislative session ends with some big stuff done, some undone; there will be a baseball season after all; state mask mandate ends as Daylight Saving Time begins.

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.

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.
