The Port is a major social and economic driver in this region as a publicly chartered business enterprise with power to tax, lay fees, and set industrial and recreational rents. Nonetheless, POS continues to operate under most voters’ radar.
It’s not that homelessness is nonexistent. There’s just not a lot – well, practically none – compared to U.S. cities. Still, there’s enough to make the Swiss nervous.
During the border closure, many separated families have staged meetups, talking across the border at the Peace Arch Park in Blaine and at 0 Avenue in Douglas, B.C.
It’s difficult to plumb the true depths of the hazards at Hanford. John Brodeur, an environmental engineer and geologist who worked at Hanford in the 1990s, wrote that the DOE’s leak-detection method is “not only flawed, but designed to avoid finding leaks.”
Crosscut/KCTS must move from its Seattle Center building by the end of 2024. An unexercised purchase agreement would move the media company to First Hill.
I doubt any votes shifted after last night's virtual debate face-off on homelessness between mayoral candidates Lorena Gonzalez and Bruce Harrell.
As the AG took questions, Ferguson was interrupted by a sudden earsplitting roar. A Growler jet passed low overhead. The jet circled south, made a pass over the Naval Outlying Landing Field, just south of Coupeville, and came around again.
When we lack a story or theological world-view that allows us to see ourselves, and our forebears, more clearly and honestly, we tend to fall back on self-justification, pointing to our record of achievement and service.
No one wants to be blamed for harming a cat aleeping in the lane. Drivers really pay attention and watch the road. After four years, I know now all the cats by sight. I have not noticed any missing
The Trudeaus, pere et fils, have won seven of eight national elections they have contested dating back to 1968 (three years before Justin was born). They have shown a ferocity whenever their hold on power was threatened.
A German company that supplies charging posts recently conducted a survey of car buyers and found that at least 30 percent were very skeptical of electric cars. The greatest fear was being stuck somewhere with a car that cannot move.
to be necessary for getting me “the refund to which I was entitled,” I thought “this is nuts . . . this is a scam . . . goodbye.”
The Pope had a long chat with reporters during a return flight from Slovakia to Rome. He was asked about the communion flap in the United States.
Equipped with her trusty pencil (maybe a pen now) she irreverently cartoons everything she spots during her strolls across the city: from vintage fire hydrants (would you believe we have 18,000?) to company logos stamped on the bricks that paved Seattle streets.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is moving to permanently block the proposed Pebble Mine project, which would locate a mile-square copper and gold mine between two of the most productive river watersheds supporting the salmon fishery of Alaska’s Bristol Bay.
The Olympic Tennis Club near Seattle’s Madison and Boren streets (atop First Hill, then a fashionable neighborhood) was founded in 1890, with courts scattered around and early club dances held in a “large riding stable.” It was later named the Seattle Tennis Club and moved to Lake Washington.
Our chef called MID. They informed him that they didn’t handle these issues. He then called the police, four different times throughout the day. They did not come until well after the fourth call, at which time they parked and watched from their car as our staff dealt with the harassment of customers on the patio.
Rumsfeld’s gone and Bush and Cheney have the sense to keep their heads down. But their neocon cheerleaders (Bill Kristol!) have risen from their crypts to pile onto Biden and proclaim that we coulda shoulda woulda won in Afghanistan. It’s a bumper crop of shamelessness.
Like so many things, it strikes me that modern brain science is confirming what traditional and spiritual wisdom have long taught: moderation is wise. Fasting is a necessary complement to feasting. But we’re up against a culture and economy that tell us to indulge, to enjoy, and to feast all the time as we try to fill some deeper emptiness.
The ball is back where it should be - on those holding office now and those we elect in November, to create a workable strategy to reach those goals.
Biden could pull back from his Everythingness to focus on one big goal, such as climate change. In Seattle, that big single goal could be housing.
For me, in-person worship, the worship of a gathered community, falls in the category of “burdens that we should not want to be rid of.”
In addition to providing a detailed critique of the climate science “consensus,” the book offers a fascinating and detailed technical explanation of how climate science actually works -- its limits, possibilities, and what this science really tells us about the future of our planet.
“Vaccines are our ticket to putting this pandemic behind us. So I call on all eligible British Columbians to roll up their sleeves to stop the spread, and help protect themselves, people they love and the community,” said B.C. Premier John Horgan.
A new laws create a new budget office to prepare forecasts, duplicating an office that already exists. In a comic twist, the law says if the council dislikes the economic forecasts, it can ignore them.
The beloved Proms concerts this year invite back audiences and have expanded the stage to accommodate full-size orchestras. Bravo!
Emily’s List – the Emily stands for "Early Money is Like Yeast” -- has a long history here and fair amount on the line.
Afghanistan will be a chaotic mess for years to come, much like France after the Revolution, so patience, partners, and focus will be key.
Mayoral candidate Lorena Gonzalez uses George Petrie’s perfectly legal donation to deliver guilt-by-association. Petrie’s donation to Bruce Harrell’s PAC pales in comparison to the labor PAC that has been running TV spots and sending out dried cherries to boost Gonzalez.
Rendering yourself more efficient — either by implementing various productivity techniques or by driving yourself harder — won’t generally result in the feeling of having ‘enough time,’ because all else being equal, the demands will increase to offset the benefits.
