We met up with Kelly Verschueren, a University of Washington nursing student, near Seattle Central on Broadway. She chose to show us her “Keep Abortion Legal” tattoo that was done by Jeremy Decory at The Aorta Art Collective, above 11th Ave. Kelly says she chose the tattoo “in response to a breakup” while she was working at Planned Parenthood. “I had a boyfriend who asked if I could go a day without talking about abortion. I was like, ‘hmmm, no.’ Two weeks after we broke up, I got it, I’d been thinking about it anyway… It’s really important to me.” Kelly says the ink has brought positive response. “People maybe don’t want to fuck with someone who is ballsy enough to put the word abortion on their arm.”

It’s a bit of a chaotic test. They get dropped almost everywhere — some literally dropped, for real — and by the end of January, the first electric-assist versions will be on the streets of Seattle. With the city allowing the multi-colored “floating” companies to operate during a Wild West trial period, It’s not a question of whether Seattle will continue to have a bike share program, it’s just a question of what the final rules will be.

A smaller than expected but spirited group gathered Saturday outside E Madison’s Planned Parenthood to counter ongoing demonstrations against the women’s health facility. CHS reported on the Seattle Clinic Defense actions that have come amid increasing national rhetoric against reproductive rights — though the organization that the group is trying to defend has officially discouraged counter-protests. Those who use the health services Planned Parenthood provides shouldn’t have to withstand demonstrations from outraged fundamentalists while they’re walking to and from the doctor, one clinic defender who CHS talked to about the efforts said. “Having something to do instead of just getting online has been really empowering for me,” she said.

Tuesday, we found out just how many people love tacos and broke some news about the future of food and drink at 23rd and Union. Today, CHS has good news on a sad part of 23rd and Union’s restaurant past. Five years after an arson fire destroyed its 23rd and Union shop, Med Mix is open again in the Central District.

It’s been a bit since CHS heard from neighborhood historian and preservationist John Fox. He’s moved off the Hill these days but we’ve learned to listen and take a look when he points us at a piece of Capitol Hill history. John wrote to us recently about a planned demolition at 17th Ave and Howell. Designated an official landmark in 2005, the Galbraith House/Seattle Mental Health building only had its exterior protected in the process. But the landmarks board decided recently to allow “no controls” on the building freeing landowner Sound Mental Health to move forward on its plans for the property. Those apparently include demolition — a permit to demolish the structure was issued on January 3rd. Preservationists have objected to the decision but work is already underway. The giant old house completed in 1904 for Seattle merchant James E. Galbraith and designed by the same architect as 15th Ave’s landmarked Gaslight Inn has been undergoing a salvage by Earthwise who have been nice enough to share some pictures.
