  • St. Alphonsus School reviewed by a parent

    We have been very happy at St.Al's for many years and know many families who feel the same. It is a community of dedicated teachers and staff who care for my child, love their faith, and teach strong academics. This you will find at St. Al's. Some people have an unrealistic expectation of what a school "should" be, and they may be looking for a prestigious or elite private school-- I think this is reflected in the negative views. St. Al's does not desire to fit a mold of what a private education should be. They want to stand out as a religious school with a dedicated priest, religious sisters, faculty and families committed to the spiritual, academic, social and moral development of the students. God Bless St. AL's.

  • St. Alphonsus School reviewed by a parent

    We have been very happy with St. Al s for many years. I know many families who feel the same. This school is a community with teachers and staff who care about my child, love God, are kind, have a passion for teaching and love our Catholic faith. This you will find at St. Al s. I feel some parents have unrealistic expectations about what a school should be and I think this is seen in the negative reviews here. Also, some people simply want a private, elite school, and not a religious one and they come for a different idea about what a school "should" be. St Al s does not desire to fit a mold when it comes to education. They desire to stand out as a religious school, with a dedicated priest, religious sisters, and excellent teachers who care about meeting the the spiritual, academic and social needs of the child, along with the active involvement of the parents, and I believe St, Al s does an excellent job! God Bless St. Al s!

Reuben’s creates ‘Good Hair Day’ brew for Rudy’s

Reuben’s will hold a Good Hair Day launch event at its taproom at 5010 14th Ave NW this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Rudy’s stylists will be on hand starting at noon “to serve up buzzcuts, bang trims and fresh fades” (hopefully while not drinking too much beer.)

    Reuben's creates 'Good Hair Day' brew for Rudy's
    Brewery collaborations are all the rage these days, and Reuben's Brews has a unique one in store: a 25th anniversary beer for Rudy's Barbershop called "Good Hair Day." "While a beer partnership might seem unlikely for a barbershop, we've never been ones to do what's expected and that's how we've stayed fresh," said Danny Segal, director of marketing and brand at Rudy's, which first opened in Capitol Hill back in 1993.

  • St. Alphonsus School reviewed by a parent

    Our family's experience from 2011- 2018 at St Alphonsus was very poor. Despite thinking that it would be different for each child, this school failed to sufficiently prepare our children academically for high school within the public school system despite our involvement, extensive volunteering within the school and teacher engagement. We put a lot into this school (financially and otherwise) and got very little from it. In fact we should have gone elsewhere for middle school. The best part of this school is its size and the fact that changes and decisions can be felt almost immediately within the school body. Unfortunately it also means that bullied kids have little to no support or protection and are easily ostracized. The worst part of our St Alphonsus experience was the bullying from parish protected families and most surprisingly from the last Principal and his support staff.

Pedestrian signal, crosswalk and bus-only lane coming to 15th Ave. NW

This stretch of 15th Ave. NW is becoming home to several apartment complexes, including a new development planned for 51st and 15th.

That busy stretch carries an estimated 50,000 vehicles and 15,000 bus passengers every day, SDOT says. For nearly half a mile — between Market and Leary — there are no crosswalks, which often results in some pedestrians making a mad dash across 15th.
