    Shadowland said they’d be open 6 pm to slow. Mentioned it _might_ not happen when I asked last night. No explanation why.

    Thanks, WSB, for yet another year of the hard, endless work of keeping us informed of what’s happening in West Seattle, and sometimes beyond! On one hand, it seems like you’ve been around forever, yet, on the other hand, it’s mind-blowing that it’s been 14 years already! —Mike

      Thanks for all the kind words. Exactly 14 years ago today, I gave notice at my last TV job, so we could see if this could be viable as a full-time business. Our other “aniversary” is the Hanukkah Eve windstorm, when we started moving toward news … next month will be 15 years since that!
