SPOT SHRIMP SEASON: In case you missed our mention, that’s what all the fishing boats are out on the bay for – until 3 pm, and then one more day this year, May 13th, 7 am-3 pm.

    Getting onto the ballot is as easy as writing a $1200 check, and all of my fellow District 1 candidates are choosing that path. I am choosing another way. I am getting onto the Seattle City Council ballot by gathering signatures of registered D1 voters.
    This weekend is the Delridge / South Park side of D1!
    Look for me in my Vote for Amanda T-shirt. I will be On the Sidewalk Near the following locations at roughly these times:
    Southwest Library
    10:00 am – 11:30 am
    South Park Library
    12:00 pm – 1:30 pm
    Delridge Library
    2:00 – 3:30 pm
    You Must be registered in West Seattle or South Park to sign for me when you see me. Or if you can’t make it, you can print out a petition, get West Seattle/South Park registered voters to sign and mail it to:
    Amanda 4 District 1
    PO Box 81082
    Seattle, WA 98108

    Does anyone know of a bar here in WS that’ll be playing the fight tonight?

    • WSB May 2, 2015 (1:46 pm)

      That’s come up in every channel and as far as we (and people who’ve been asking around) know, NO. Apparently the fee to show it is something like $4K-$5k.

Sorry, comment time is over.
