See something? Say something — even if nobody wants to hear about it

Washington and Mackey

    See something? Say something - even if nobody wants to hear about it
    With thousands of people set to hit the streets Saturday for the 2018 Seattle Women's March, an experience at this week's MLK Day march provides an example for what to do if you see something that doesn't seem right. See something? Say something - even if the first person you tell doesn't seem to want to hear about it.

What’s next for Seattle’s new era floating bike shares

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.

CHS Pics | On E Madison, a spirited defense of reproductive rights

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.

Capitol Hill landmark-protected Galbraith House readied for demolition

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.

A good time to visit Capitol Hill’s ‘most strange & unique book bunker’ Horizon Books

What if we told you Horizon Books was still alive? We reported the 15th Ave E bookshop’s closure in 2009. Eventually, another book shop would take its place. But Horizon never really went away as it retreated below ground, squirreled away on 10th Ave in the middle of Pike/Pine. Over the summer, it looked like Horizon was about to say goodbye again before it sprang back once more in September.

Pro-choice activists anticipating a crowd to counter conservative protests outside Planned Parenthood

Hundreds are going. Thousands are interested. It’s difficult to know how many will show to counter anti-choice protesters outside the Planned Parenthood’s Capitol Hill Clinic on Saturday, January 13. Officially, Planned Parenthood disapproves of the counter-action by pro-choicers, asking supporters of bodily autonomy to instead channel their activism into more conventional channels, such as donating and tweeting. Organizers of the pro-choice counter-action — called Seattle Clinic Defense — say they must reclaim the spaces outside clinics that anti-choicers have already politicized, and say their goal is not to protest but to shield patients from harassment.

CHS Ink | Elizabeth and Talia’s hands

Just outside of Kaladi Brothers on E Pike, we caught up with Elizabeth Moore Symmeson and Talia Antone who got friendship tattoos from Sara Purr at Rabid Hands in Ballard. With both working with women and children, the decision to get tattooed at a fundraiser donating money to a women’s domestic violence center was an easy one to make. After they got back from Standing Rock, they wanted to get tattoos of hands because Elizabeth slipped out of her zip-ties while on the bus to jail and helped to “scratch itches and move all the hair out of their face” of those who were still tied up.

New regulations threaten short term/long term mix at Capitol Hill’s St. John’s Apartments

A 22-unit Capitol Hill apartment building at Harvard and Pike is affordable to locals, accessible to mostly culturally conscious visitors, and — so far — sustainable as a real estate investment.

Jody Hall’s Goodship edibles gobbled up by pot-focused private equity firm

Capitol Hill entrepreneurs know a little bit about the industries of helping people party — and sometimes relax. So it wasn’t a surprise to see some of the Hill’s captains of industry get involved with the early days of Washington’s nascent retail marijuana economy. But just as the entirety of the West Coast has now legalized retail pot, one of those captains has marked a major entrepreneurial milestone, selling her marijuana edibles brand to a Seattle-based private equity firm.
