We're playing Becoming Jane for one week beginning Friday, September 21. It's a good choice, a high class dramatic respite and an escape to the stately mansions and rolling meadows of a simpler time. Did Jane Austen have a love life? Was she a nineteenth-century hottie whose steamy love affairs became her novels? We'll never tell.

Still playing through Thursday, Sept 20: Hairspray 2:00 and 7:00; Superbad 4:30


Tuesday evening, there's a second Design Review meeting for a proposed apartment building at the corner of Rainier and 39th, across from SEED. It's currently a car lot, and it's one of those prominent acute corner lots on the historic district's ragged edge.

Here's the notice, and here's the report from the last meeting. There's also an initial review for 4626 MLK Jr. Wy S. Please attend, and keep these pointers in mind.

Full disclosure — I administer many such reviews, and proactive citizen input can be the key to achieving a good design for the neighborhood.


Think globally, bike locally: Seattle Climate Action NOW in Columbia City. Join us September 22 from 9am - 1pm in Columbia City to celebrate! Seattle Climate Action NOW is asking Seattle residents to become part of the solution to global warming by taking action.

Your input here could result in better Columbia City sidewalks. Rob Mohn spells it out.

CC in the blogossiphere

Columbia City kitty craves quality cuisine, clears out to cultivate community connections & causes quandry. Consider: our community comprises a certain cultured cat, this choice chum chow, and these colorful, classy creations. Coincidence? Codswallop. Clearly this captivating cat clicks and consorts with contacts by consulting Columbia Citizens. Case closed.


Wean the Wikli of its spamming ways. Hundreds of neighbors have found their way to the Wikli, mainly because the alerts go to lots of local listservs. The Wikli knows it's got a problem. It wants to kick the spam habit. So it's committed to a twelve-week program… After that, it's cold turkey — Wikli alerts only for those who have asked for them. This is week 5, so you've got seven more weeks to procrastinate. Or you could just opt in now.
