In April, Bertha, the world’s largest boring machine, finally broke through just west of Aurora, completing a 1.7-mile underground journey. However, the tunnel itself won’t be finished until 2019 -- four years from its original 2015 completion date.

  • Revisiting the Park: Making bread (and losing it) on the old delivery route
    The mid-20th Century  was a time for a new business enterprise to start up with little or no overhead, tax free.  It was a green company with few requirements--perhaps a 1927 Issue 45 Cal—it was a cash removal company called a Holdup!
  • Outside City Hall: The bullies Nextdoor
    Nextdoor is an online bulletin board where residents may post anything about their neighborhood:  lost cats and dogs, things they’re giving away or selling, upcoming events — or perhaps a post about criminal activity or something else amiss in their community.
  • A City on a Hill: Je t'aime, Seattle!
    The French have decided they love Seattle, and not just our pastoral fish-throwin’ and whale-watchin’ tourist draws. They love our arts scene.
  • Revisiting the Park: The art of the dance
    We — the almost-legal-agers — often met in one of the three taverns in Madison Park after a hard day’s work.
  • Our once quaint little fishing village, so used to being treated as America's "forgotten corner," has suddenly become the epicenter for defense of American freedom and democracy; the champion of an all-fronts war to pull this nation back from insanity, and forward into a better future.
  • I wholeheartedly support the decision to divest from Wells Fargo by the city council! 
  • Where is global warming when we need it? I do look forward to the first day of spring, balmy weather, and flowers in bloom.
  • This screwed up “world-class city” (or is it “no-class city?”) was lovely and accessible when I enrolled in the University of Washington School of Art in 1949.
  • LETTER: 100 Women Who Care thank neighbors in Madison Park
    On Feb. 1, 100 Women Who Care Greater Seattle met at Pyramid Alehouse and chose the Pink Daisy Project to receive our donation. With Madison Park neighbors' participation, it was our largest donation to date, $4,500. What a fun evening!
  • Over the next year, every Seattle neighborhood, already reeling from the impacts of runaway growth under current zoning, will be asked to accept upzones and still more density.

  • Why are ST3 voters surprised about their car tabs?
     Voters approved ST3 in November. But you wouldn't know it from the deluge of complaints from vehicle owners, now that they've been mailed their first post-ST3  car tab fees.
  • Flat feet to the rescue
    We pre-20-year-olds were just getting into enjoying the summer scene in Madison Park in 1957 — the singles haven of Seattle.  However, the knowledge that the draft was imminent severely dampened our joy.

  • Seattle’s robust economy and strong demand for housing are changing our neighborhoods.
  • So with the national (and global) mood taking such a swift, sudden turn, what will be "on the rise" or "approaching demise?"
  • An Unholy Alliance?: Speak Out Seattle yells
    In order to broaden their appeal, leaders of the Neighborhood Safety Alliance recently formed Speak Out Seattle (SOS), a new coalition of Seattle “residents, business owners and community groups,” to fight legalizing homeless camping, oppose legalized drug-consumption and treatment sites, and demand as many as 300 new police officers by the end of the year.
  • The safety of enemies
    Mayor Murray's dramatic declaration that he will sue the federal government for any information they don't hand over about President Trump's immigration orders sounds good -- but it's the legal equivalent of promising to check out a library book.
  • The Iceman Cometh
    Early Saturday morning, a short 66 years ago, I took the No. 11 bus and found myself standing on the corner of Broadway and Pike, right where the QFC is now.
