    Cascades bring American Ultimate Disc League battle - and Portland rivalry - to Capitol Hill
    Lots of interesting things happen at Cal Anderson but Capitol Hill's central park may have found a new symbol of its eccentric charm by means of a professional frisbee team-the city's very first-called the Seattle Cascades.

The Rozellna, however it was spelled, was the site of a tragic and mysterious death

The address here, 1622 Boren Ave., shows the scene’s centerpiece, the Rozellna, on the east side of one of Seattle’s busiest north-south arterials. The Rozellna was often misspelled, appearing in advertisements and newspaper stories as “Rozelna,” “Rozelina,” “Roxelina” and “Roselna.”

This article has 1 other Seattle location (Show)

In recording his “Now” photo, Jean Sherrard took special care (looked both ways) to quickly pose James at Boren’s center stripe and then get the preservationist back to the curb, where she shared some of her research with us.

    The Rozellna, however it was spelled, was the site of a tragic and mysterious death
    The Rozellna apartments were wiped out in the early 1960s by Interstate 5. Twenty years earlier, a 43-year-old woman died after falling through a window on the 11th floor of the Olive Tower onto the Rozellna's roof.

Capitol Hill Pets | At Optimism, vive la Franc!

Franc is a three-year-old French Bulldog who has lived with his friend Michelle Dawahare since he was ten weeks old. Franc is great with people, especially kids, and is super easy going. We met him inside Optimism Brewing where he was being especially sweet. Though he is likely in a celebratory mood following the World Cup, Franc has a sensitive stomach, so if you see him, only give him pets.

‘Pay by plate’ will mean no more parking stickers in Seattle (and you probably still won’t be able to find a spot to park at night on Capitol Hill)

The end of the stickies

    'Pay by plate' will mean no more parking stickers in Seattle (and you probably still won't be able to find a spot to park at night on Capitol Hill)
    Parking on Capitol Hill should be more convenient under a new "pay by plate" system coming to Seattle that will allow people to enter their license plate number to pay for parking rather than print out a sticker and put it on their window.

Connelly: A Saturday surprise: Acting SPD Chief Carmen Best is back in contention

If Jenny Durkan is indeed the "impatient mayor" -- a line she sold to the Seattle Times for its "first 100 days" profile -- she would summon the SDOT's acting director and other city nabobs to Boren and Howell, and give the order: "I want this mess cleaned up. NOW."
