This Week’s 6-page News Section!

posted by on July 26 at 15:31 PM

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.

There’s also Charles Mudede’s Police Beat column (starring the controversial Officer Greg Neubert) and my Counter•Intel column on GOP Rep. Dave Reichert’s religion.

Jonah also files a bunch of blurbs from the neighborhoods about rat-infested apartments and skateparks.

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.

Another in a long series of articles in The Stranger poking fun at those "weird" people about town, eh? Is this some expression of unhealthy self-loathing on the part of staffers at The Stranger? A deep-seated need to maintain the nerd pecking order?

hey, I thought The Stranger was going to follow up on that guy that supposedly went running and everybody spent all weekend looking for him in the woods and then he showed up going 'whut?' with no scratches. We all know he was lying, but I never heard, you know, the REST of the story.

I like how, after they get rid of the roaches, rats, and mice in the section 8 housing, they'll promptly kick everyone out of it and sell the condos at ridiculous prices to people who had no idea about the former inhabitants. Like the people on section 8 are less deserving than those who can buy the stupid overpriced condo?

Bah, I hate condo conversions. They make me live in fear of losing my reasonably-priced apartment.

ECB? Is Erica becoming a chain of yogurt shops, or are you folks just too lazy to type out her name?
