Mon
Ari B. Cofer reads from new book ‘unfold’ @ Elliott Bay Book Co.
Jan 30 @ 2:26 am – Feb 10 @ 7:00 pm

West Seattle poet Ari B. Cofer reads from her second collection unfold alongside fellow poet and collaborator Caitlin Conlon.

unfold is a poetic, aching, and hopeful retelling of realizations made while on the journey to healing from both loss of love and loss of self. Through poetry and short essays, unfold shows that true growth comes from being unafraid to face what’s hidden inside, to be vulnerable, and to be unashamed of what we find when we finally open up.

Ari B. Cofer, author of paper girl and the knives that made her, has curated an engaged audience on social media and has been widely featured. While she enjoys love poems, she hopes to continue her mental-health advocacy by writing on topics like depression, trauma, and recovery.

Caitlin Conlon is a poet and avid reader based out of Upstate New York. She is a graduate of the University at Buffalo, where she graduated magna cum laude with a BA in English and Creative Writing Certificate. While there, she was the recipient of the “Friends of the University Libraries Undergraduate Poetry Prize” and the “Arthur Axlerod Memorial Prize” for Poetry.

The Opportunity to Be Informed, Be Involved and Be Heard!

Where? North Highline Unincorporated Area Council Meeting

When? Thursday, February 2, 2023, at 7 pm

The death of Tyre Nichols, the young father who died as the result of a traffic stop in Memphis, is heartbreaking and points to the importance of police knowing the communities they are sworn to serve and protect.

Deputy Bill Kennamer of the King County Sheriff’s Office is a regular participant in NHUAC meetings because he is an important member of the North Highline community. This month we are going to expand the public safety discussion. Deputy Bill will be joined by:

Undersheriff Jesse Anderson
Precinct 4 Commander Major Mark Konoske
Community Service Officer Nate Hammock

For the past 4 years, KCSO has supported the Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) a/k/a “Let Everyone Advance with Dignity” program in North Highline. At a 2019 NHUAC meeting, then-Major Anderson said: “The bottom line is, we want people to turn their lives around.… It’s a great tool, like many other resources we bring in.”

To update us on LEAD’s work, we will also be joined by Reese Abram and Tanisha Davis-Doss of King County LEAD and Aaron Burkhalter, LEAD Program Manager with the Public Defenders Association.

Knowledge is power: Learn, share, and help make North Highline a healthier community.

Local Roadhouses of Seattle @ Words, Writers, Southwest Stories @ online
Feb 9 @ 6:00 pm

Pete Blecha
AUTHOR – HISTORIAN – RESEARCHER – INDEPENDENT CURATOR

He is also a contributing editor with Washington State’s online encyclopedia, HistoryLink.org; the multiple award-winning author of ten books; Director of the Northwest Music Archives, and a freelance writer. He has been acknowledged as “the premier expert in his chosen field of research” (Seattle weekly).

Pete will be sharing a PowerPoint slide show with many great vintage images of his book, “Local Roadhouses of Seattle” (publisher, American Palate, Aug. 2022).

Blecha’s on-line introduction explains: “Prohibition came early to Washington State – in 1916 – and kicked off an unforgettable era of nightlife. When prohibition went national in 1920, a network of roadside inns, taverns and dancehalls just outside Seattle’s city limits thrived, well into the rockin’ 1950s, providing illicit entertainment for those seeking a good time. Spurred on by early car culture and strict liquor laws, places like the Spanish Castle, The Jungle, and the Black Cat sprang into being. Commonly called roadhouses, many of these remote outposts existed along two newly built and parallel stretches of county highways, far from the prying eyes of city police. Fabled speakeasy operator ‘Doc’ Hamilton founded some of these hideaways.

Join author Peter Blecha as he uncovers the fascinating era of forbidden nightclubs.

Our unsheltered neighbors face tough times living outdoors!

The Westside Interfaith Network (WIN), our donations drive partner, requests clean, wearable Fall/Winter clothes in all sizes, seasonally appropriate for unsheltered men and women. Please only donate casual clothing appropriate for people living outdoors (i.e., no dresses, men’s suits, party clothes, high heels, etc. … please be thoughtful).

Waterproof outwear is a priority but the following items are also welcome: sleeping bags, blankets, pads, tarps and backpacks. Please go through your camping gear and consider donating what you don’t need or use anymore.

Non-perishable food and hygiene items are distributed through WIN’s “Welcome Table,” a weekly Saturday meal for low income and unsheltered folks hosted in White Center. This distribution serves as a stop-gap for many people relying on weekly visits to the food bank.

Hygiene items include toilet paper, deodorant, toothbrush and paste, shampoo and conditioner, razors and shaving cream, baby wipes, adult pull ups and baby diapers.

Basic food staples are a priority, as well as peanut butter, canned proteins, canned fruits and vegetables (pop-tops preferred).

Many thanks to our generous community for supporting our neighbors in need!
