MISCmedia MAIL for 3/18/16
Mar 17th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We welcome spring, and the expanded local light rail, with chatter about a way to prove your Northwest-bred-ness on your vehicle; a whistleblower’s blast against Hanford’s waste-treatment project; a resource center for Af-Am entrepreneurs; a new way to keep sea lions from decimating fish stocks; and a plethora of weekend activity choices.

Mar 11th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Our last newsletter before the start of Daylight Savings Time springs ahead with the Legislature’s continuing impasse; a Microsoft-planned “smart city” (really a suburb); the start of Greenwood’s rebuilding; Bieber’s Belltown boo-boo; and a lovely old building that keeps getting moved.

The week’s half over, in case you care. And we care about the Legislature’s “garbage time” moments; Amazon’s first daily TV show (not made here); some of the Northwest’s unsung/unnamed heroines; and Gonzaga’s zillionth-straight conference basketball title.

MISCmedia MAIL for 3/4/16
Mar 4th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

We enter March’s first weekend with an odd proposed compromise to historic-preservation activists; Seattle-saved WWII radio newscasts; the area’s second-most-hiring company (no, not them); sex workers speaking for themselves; how to make Wash. state even more irrelevant in Presidential nominations; and the usual bevy of weekend activities.

MISCmedia MAIl for 3/3/16

For your perusal, we have we have bigger things made of wood than have been made before; an attempt to bring back nuclear power; Portland’s “toxic moss;” Foo Fighters’ non-breakup; and a tragic update to one of the Sonics’ movers.

MISCmedia MAIL for 3/2/16
Mar 1st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Sooper Toosday settled nothing, and neither did the City Council committee vote on saving bike sharing. But we do know that Boeing’s planning a 100th birthday bash; a heroin treatment center’s re-opening; squatters are speaking out in favor of squatting; and one of the guys who “plundered” the Sonics is in big trouble (can you feel the schadenfreude rising?).

MISCmedia MAIl for 3/1/16
Feb 29th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Sooper Toosday finds us blathering about a racketeering suit against Mars Hill Church’s top brass; how to properly describe an alleged adult-woman/teenage-boy relationship; just how hard Russell Wilson’s “Good Man” clothes will be to find; and that ridiculously big container ship.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/29/16

Make the great leap (day) forward with tidbits about yet another music-scene vet needing our help; a big plan to at least bandage the symptoms of homelessness; another bookstore trying to crowdfund its way to survival; and a look forward to the “collapsing new buildings” of tomorrow.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/25/16
Feb 24th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Warm and dry weather’s expected to end today, but MISCmedia MAIL keeps going with lobbyists who want to keep your “biometric” data; the big Alaskan Way midrise project’s off again; another unlikely industry for a female chief executive; Amazon’s going “fashion forward;” and remembering when right-wing kitsch was considered funny.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/24/16
Feb 24th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Our midweek missive covers Clint Dempsey’s achievements; Calvin Johnson’s (the Olympia one, not the Detroit one) fiscal ills; the Brits discovering Pike/Pine’s turmoil; the costs of any expanded water taxi; and the incredible shrinking unbuilt downtown tower.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/23/16
Feb 23rd, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

Sounders FC’s back, and so is MISCmedia MAIL, with nude-dude public art; another police killing and its discontents; arsenic in the air in Portland; and “I Can Haz Sellout.”

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/22/16
Feb 21st, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

A dryer, sunnier week starts off with a homeless camp that refuses to be shut down; Portland’s toxic air; indie bookstores on the rebound; our plastic-trashed oceans; and the second- or third-greatest film ever made in Spokane.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/11/16
Feb 11th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

In Thursday’s e-news: The Malheur siege winds down; the once-threatened Bothell golf course lives; the anti-trans restroom bill dies; the link between Big Pharma and homelessness; a really big cargo ship.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/10/16
Feb 9th, 2016 by Clark Humphrey

It’s Lent, but don’t give up your daily MISCmedia MAIL. Why, today alone we’ve got a plan to stop the Legislature’s pathetic-ness; differing views on the state “affordable” housing tax credit scheme; SPU students challenge white privilege; Amazon’s (alleged) big-big-big cargo plans; and an artwork honoring a Northwest legend.

MISCmedia MAIL for 2/9/16

When you’re the only supermarket operator in a lot of area towns, what famous board game do you use for a seasonal promotion? Also in the news: Seattle’s denser than ever (and some consider that a good thing); the big Costco/American Express divorce; Marshawn Lynch farewells; local Mardi Gras-esque activities.
