Guild 45th Closing Credits

When the Guild 45th theater closed suddenly and mysteriously this past Spring, nobody really believed their story of “renovations planned”, and with good reason, it turns out.

A More Inclusive Wallingford Housing Debate?

With Seattle housing conditions in full-on crisis mode, single-family neighborhoods have become a central flashpoint. How do we increase density? How do we respect neighborhood character? This debate is raging in Wallingford as we speak; the deluge of competing red pro-HALA, and orange anti-HALA yard signs make that abundantly clear. With the housing crisis at […]
