The arts feed our minds and our hearts | Guest Column

  • Nov 21, 2015 at 9:00AM

Why is the development of a vibrant arts and culture sector such an important element in the progress of the Eastside? It’s a fair question. After all, if you’re willing to sit in traffic, pay a toll and spring for a $20 parking tab, there’s plenty to do in Seattle.

The time has come for the Eastside to grow up | Guest Column

  • Oct 31, 2015 at 10:00AM

The old Sunday morning trope asks, “What’s missing from CH _ _ CH? U R!“ No, it’s not particularly funny (my pastors growing up never were). It does, however, make a quick and important point — any group of people is only as vibrant as the people who participate in it.
