Aki Kurose -- The troubled Aki Kurose Middle School is getting a new principal. Also, it looks like the Rainier Valley Post will not be getting answers from the Aki Kurose administration while investigations are underway.
Christian Restoration Center -- Is there still a ton of graffiti on the south-facing brick wall, the one overlooking the parking lot? I don't pass by there every day, so I don't always have the most up-to-date information on the situation there.
The developers told me this week that they've dealt with the graffiti on the back of the building three times, and as of Monday, there was none. And they're strategizing on the best way to deal with graffiti on the front of the building. But they haven't mentioned the side of the building, which is where I was seeing the most prominent problems.
Wedding Reception Locations Around Beacon Hill and Georgetown? -- A reader is looking for a place around Beacon Hill or Georgetown to hold her wedding reception next summer. I've suggested the Georgetown Ballroom. Does anyone else have any other ideas? Sounds like non-traditional venue suggestions, like art and/or industrial spaces, are welcome.
My Excuse for Lazy Blog Posting -- I've whined about all this before, but I might not be posting many photos or much original content over the next couple months. In the next four weeks, I plan to work full-time, attend four showers and three weddings, catch up on months of yardwork on two increasingly weed-choked lots, finish a nursery, and have a baby. (Girl, as yet unnamed.) But I plan to check in regularly and continue to link to other people's posts and newspaper articles, though.
