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.

    Machine House taproom will be E Jefferson neighborhood pub with cask ales and football on the telly
    If you want to do it right - create your own cask ales, "served through beer engines and at cellar temperature" - you're going to have to do it yourself. Georgetown-born Machine House Brewery is building a cozy tap room and soccer pub to showcase its English-style beers amid the growing food and drink scene along E Jefferson because it's a bloody shame to waste great beer.

    Officials unsure how many thousands to expect on Capitol Hill as plan for 2018 Seattle Women's March comes together
    For the thousands hoping to come to Capitol Hill for the January 20th Seattle Women's March, we have two words for you: light rail.
