News This Week’s 6-page News Section!
posted by July 26 at 15:31 PMon
I’m happy to announce that this week’s news section is hot and heavy.
For starters, both mad freelancer Dominic Holden and vet staffer ECB have follow-ups to the stories they wrote last week.
Holden got a copy of the affidavit the Washington State Patrol filed to get their search warrant on the Kent couple they shook down. He finds that the medical marijuana bust was even more egregious than we first reported.
Erica follows up her scoop about Mayor Nickels’s assault on the city’s bike master plan (the Seattle Times copped her story two days later, btw) with news of a bad-ass, smart-ass bike protest in the works for Fremont.
Erica also has a new scoop this week about the City Council’s flip-flop on the nightclub license. Surprise! They’re for it now.
Eli Sanders weighs in on the increasingly testy Democratic primary on the Eastside between Darcy Burner and Rodney Tom.
Jonah Spangenthal-Lee has a goofy story about people who like to dress up and play vampire at the UW on Saturday night. That is: 50 people who like to dress up and play vampire at the UW.
Finally, as a nice companion to ECB’s nightlife piece, we sent Party Crasher, Paul Constant, to all 5 of Mayor Nickels’s “Dangerous Clubs” to find some danger. (Seems like we should have sent him to the post office instead.) Anyway, Constant’s report from the bathroom of the J&M is of particular interest.
