Deep freeze hangs on; Showbox-savers keep on; foster kids sent out-of-state face horrific abuses; Boeing’s involved in an “SST” jet program again.

2/4/19: THE FUNNEST DAY EVER IN SEATTLE
Feb 4th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

A perfect, beautiful (and dangerous) Snow Day; the Bertha tunnel opens and almost nobody notices; a prison food strike in eastern Wash.; Inslee keeps raising campaign cash.

2/4/19: VIA-DONE (THE PENULTIMATE CHAPTER)
Feb 3rd, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Snowpocalypse 2019 coincides with the Bertha Tunnel’s debut; Portland could get bigtime baseball after all; can the Lava Lounge block (and the Montlake Market) be saved?

2/1/19: NO COMMON ‘GROUND’
Jan 31st, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

Howard Schultz’s local campaign kickoff and its discontents; don’t look but the non-Viadoom’s over; facing ‘casual’ racism at Roosevelt HS; can drinking red wine help you lose weight?

1/25/19: A STRIKING ANNIVERSARY
Jan 24th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

It’s 100 years since Seattle’s General Strike; the dreaded Viadoom’s still not here; a big settlement follows an SFD ambulance crash; is the shutdown making airports less safe?

Speakers and marchers call to continue MLK’s fight; orcas aren’t ‘in the pink’; Seattle’s long-threatened ‘Carmageddon’ still isn’t here; Boeing’s new quality-control plan means fewer human inspectors.

CRUISIN’ THE VIADUCT
Jan 13th, 2019 by Clark Humphrey

The city and WSDOT apparently expected a calm, orderly shutdown to the Alaskan Way Viaduct at 10 p.m. Friday night.

What happened instead was a big, popular, slow-speed cruisin’ scene. Thousands came to pay their last respects to the doomed scenic waterfront roadway. There were cars, trucks, at least one semi, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians.

It was after 10:25 when crews finally put up the barricades at the Viaduct’s northern on-ramps. The northbound cruise continued for more than another hour.

The official last civilian vehicle on the Viaduct was a stalled car, that had to be pushed by a cop car.
