With Masterwish, Danny Newcomb, formerly of Goodness and The Rockfords, has scaled new heights as a songwriter and discovered his own singing voice. “For many years,” he says, “for me, playing lead guitar and searching for a melody was singing. Masterwish is the first record where I sing with my real voice on my songs. It’s the record I’ve always had humming in my head.” The Sugarmakers include Eric Eagle on drums, Rick Friel on lead bass, and Annie O’Neill on backup vocals.

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

    7. High Point Market Garden Farm Stand open Wednesdays
      4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden. Every summer, its farm stand offers a weekly chance to buy fresh-grown produce steps from where it’s grown, and the city Department of Neighborhoods sent word that this Wednesday June 24th is opening day. Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

      The announcement adds, “A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound.

Experience group guided and silent meditation practices including a brief introduction to meditation, tips for a successful meditation and a group discussion following the practice. Beginners are welcome!

His crime novel is set in Seattle that provides ‘detailed descriptions as only a real life detective could portray’.

All purchases made by those attending the talk that afternoon and for the following five days will result in a contribution of ten percent of proceeds to the Southwest Seattle Historical Society under Barnes and Noble’s Book Fair program.

      Both Kannas and his wife, Delores, have lived in the Admiral District of West Seattle for 30 years, where he is working on another novel with the same protagonist. He has written for the West Seattle Herald, “View from the Saddle”, a periodic column on bicycling and he also writes poetry.

      “Words, Writers & West Seattle’s” next First Friday Book-Talk is scheduled for Oct. 2nd and will feature West Seattle’s Stephanie Guerra, presenting her young adult series, “Betting Blind” and “Out of Aces”.

      12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden. Every summer, its farm stand offers a weekly chance to buy fresh-grown produce steps from where it’s grown, and the city Department of Neighborhoods sent word that this Wednesday June 24th is opening day. Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

      The announcement adds, “A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound. ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it.” DoN oversees the High Point Market Garden (one of two in the city – the other is at NewHolly) as part of its P-Patch program.

      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.

      Our Community Meditation Gatherings are ideal for just about anyone! You don’t have to be an experienced practitioner to meditate with us.

      Our Community Meditation Gatherings give you an opportunity to learn about meditation, experience a guided group experience and ask questions to deepen your understanding of the practice. Experience group guided and silent meditation practices including a brief introduction to meditation, tips for a successful meditation and a group discussion following the practice. Beginners are welcome!

      We look forward to you joining us for an enlightened hour.

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      Evening Walk with the Owls, Ravens and Other Life Forms at Lincoln Park:

      Stewart shares his exceptional enthusiasm and knowledge of Lincoln’s natural community as we look for the Barred Owls and their signs, and listen and look for Seattle’s first successful nesting pair of Ravens, and their fledgelings, since urbanization pushed this species out many decades ago. The tour also includes any other plant or animal that anyone may want the story of. Adult level programming, but suitable for kids that don’t dominate. Meet at the north parking lot kiosk, across from Rose St. Call or e-mail to reserve a spot: 206 932-7225 (land ) orecostewart@gmail.com If rain is forecast check this website or my outgoing message on my answering machine (206 932-7225) for a possible cancellation due to excessively heavy rain (I won’t cancel for a light sprinkle.)

      Baby Ketten Karaoke starts at 9 pm at Skylark Café & Club. Details on Baby Ketten and songlists here. Free, ages 21+.

      “I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden. Every summer, its farm stand offers a weekly chance to buy fresh-grown produce steps from where it’s grown, and the city Department of Neighborhoods sent word that this Wednesday June 24th is opening day. Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

      The announcement adds, “A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound. ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it.” DoN oversees the High Point Market Garden (one of two in the city – the other is at NewHolly) as part of its P-Patch program.

      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.

      12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      Summary:
      Many elements threaten mankind. War, famine, disease, chemical warfare, catastrophic natural disasters, invaders from other worlds… Each event could potentially wipe out all life on earth or at least completely alter our world as we know it. Which do you think will make its mark? Will it be one? Many combined? And, what happens AFTER? Will man be annihilated or will we survive? Who will survive? How will we live then?

      Will we rebuild our world with robots and cyborgs? Will chemical warfare result in mutant beings? Will there be a mass exodus off the planet? Will we reemerge as a new race of enlightened beings? We will explore many of these things through dance in ‘AFTER – An Apocalypse Story’

      Starring: Anwaar, Candida Goza, Deidra Johnson, Forge Dance Theater, Katana, Maureen O’Donnell, Medea, Somni, Twilight….and featuring our very special out of town guest star, SERA SOLSTICE coming all the way from New York!

      12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      The readings will take place in the Illsley Ball Nordstrom Recital Hall at Benaroya Hall, beginning at 7 PM on September 28. The events are free and open to the public. The young authors will sign copies of the anthology, and a reception will follow, with sweets donated by Cupcake Royale.

      4:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      It’s a mini-farm in the middle of a residential neighborhood – the High Point Market Garden. Every summer, its farm stand offers a weekly chance to buy fresh-grown produce steps from where it’s grown, and the city Department of Neighborhoods sent word that this Wednesday June 24th is opening day. Just-harvested organic produce will be on sale 4 pm-7 pm at the farm stand at 32nd and Juneau (map), every Wednesday from this week through September 30th. EBT cards are accepted and the stand participates in Fresh Bucks, doubling the first $10 spent on the card.

      The announcement adds, “A new feature at the High Point Farm Stand will be the ROAR mobile farm stand that sells produce grown by local farmers across Puget Sound. ROAR, which stands for Roots of All Roads, is focused on connecting community with locally grown produce and sharing new ways to enjoy it.” DoN oversees the High Point Market Garden (one of two in the city – the other is at NewHolly) as part of its P-Patch program.

      Seattle P-Patch Market Gardens is a program of the P-Patch Community Gardening Program in collaboration with the Seattle Housing Authority and P-Patch Trust to support low-income gardeners and neighborhoods. Its mission is to establish safe, healthy communities and economic opportunity through Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) and farm stand enterprises.

      10:00 am – 11:30 am

      PEPS – The Program for Early Parent Support is offering West Seattle Baby Peppers Fall Sessions. Little Peppers will meet for an 11-week session, September 24-December 10, 10-11:30 am at the YMCA – Fauntleroy.

      In a PEPS Group, parents meet (with their babies), share, and learn in sessions facilitated by a trained volunteer. Each meeting includes time for sharing parenting highs and lows, followed by a discussion of a topic related to the joys and challenges of parenting.

      Little Peppers is designed for families with two children ages 3 and under. Group participants meet, share and learn in sessions led by a professional facilitator, who is assisted by a trained
      Wondersitter childcare provider. Each
      meeting includes time for sharing parenting highs and lows, time to focus on the babies’ development and a discussion topic. Babies and children remain in the room with their parents for the entire meeting – which makes for quite a busy and exciting time! The program fee for Little Peppers is $200 for the 11-week session. Financial assistance is available. Register at http://www.peps.org/programs/by-region/west-seattle/little%20peppers.

      MONDAY ARTISTS wants you. We are an established group of watercolorists who meet Monday mornings from 9:30 to noon at the Island View Apts across the street from West Seattle H.S. There is a minimal fee of $5 for the use of the room. First-timers are free. We start with a critique and paint the rest of the time. Beginners and experienced artists are welcome.

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

    7. Kitty Harbor weekend adoption event
      12:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Experience Unconditional LOVE At Our Weekend Adoption Events

      Looking to add some furry love to your family? Then get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Every weekend there are 20 to 40+ Adult cats, teenagers (6+ months), and kittens (8 weeks to 6 months), waiting to meet ‘n’ greet you. And just so you know, kittens under 6 months old must be adopted in pairs unless there is already another cat friendly cat in the household.

      If you love black cats like we do, we always have some of the sweetest black/black & white kittens you will ever meet. Not only are they gorgeous & sleek, but they are lovers! Be sure to ask to meet them.

      Who are we? Kitty Harbor is a non-profit, volunteer-only, rescue, rehabilitation, and adoption facility for homeless and abandoned cats and kittens. Our cats and kittens enter at our facility from several rescue avenues:

      · Transferred from Western Washington shelters when their time has run out

      · From cat rescue groups located in Eastern Washington where the cat/kitten kill rate is anywhere from 70% to 90%

      · From Kitty Harbor’s own rescue work in greater Seattle

      We are open for adoptions every Saturday and Sunday, from noon – 5 pm, through December 20th. Get yourself to Kitty Harbor. Adopt a cat and save nine lives!

      Saturday, October 10 at 7:30 pm at Kenyon Hall, enjoy a performance by Whateverly Brothers and Pint and Dale.

      The Whateverly Brothers are very excited to get to perform again with Pint and Dale at Kenyon Hall, a wonderful place for entertainment of all kinds. Kenyon Hall is famous for their yummy root beer floats and has an amazing 1927 Mighty Wurlitzer, which the manager is fond of playing during intermissions. It has all the actual bells and whistles one of those things should have.

      The Whateverly Brothers offer tight harmonies, Celtic music, lots of known or obscure folk music, rock & roll, sea shanties, and WHATEVER ELSE they can dig out of their multitudinous repertoire. Their obvious pleasure in performing is infectious—You will tap your toes and sing along as the Brothers employ their own special musical style. They are a trio again, yeah!! and entertaining as ever! The members are Dan Roberts, Chris Glanister and now Rob Kneisler, who is, among other things, a masterful guitar player. Their reportoire goes from “Old Man River” to “Yellow Submarine” to “The Irish Rover” to “Leavingof Liverpool”. Their music comes from the four directions. Ya just never know.

      The Bros are honored to share the bill with our friends Pint and Dale. Here is what a couple of reviews say:
      “Pint and Dale are local favorites and international touring artists, known for their Music of the Sea. “William Pint and Felicia Dale rank among North America’s most exciting interpreters of music based in the traditions of the British Isles and France’s unconventional but spine-tingling unique and mesmerizing!”
      Tom Nelligan, Dirty Linen Magazine
      “Drawing on several cultures, Pint and Dale perform traditional and modern music and songs reflecting the immense vitality of those who live and work on the sea. Their music fits into the world of modern folk, rock and popular song, but it’s rich with the myth, narrative, rhythm, rhyme and lyric associated with the days of the tall ships. Their airtight harmonies, solid musical arrangements, and flair for the theatricality of song, make Pint and Dale one of the best duos around.”
      Woods Hole Folk Music Society, Massachusetts
