I am not insane.

People will probably accuse me of being insane because I’m starting my 2012 blog by talking about failures. I can imagine some readers’ reaction. “Don’t you have better things to write about?” Read the full story

BLOG: Santa’s gifts are here to cover our losses

Ho, ho, ho, yes, yes, yes!

I looked back on 2010 to see if our blessings exceeded our losses. Indeed, they did

1. Welcome, Cobalt, our new neighbor

Vulcan building

So Amazon moved out last summer, and we lost a lot of business in the Chinatown/International District.  Cobalt, which provides digital marketing services, has signed in as the new tenant to use up some of the space that Amazon occupied in the Vulcan buildings. Cobalt might not have as big of a crowd as Amazon. But having 800 additional bodies in our community is nothing to sneeze at. Hopefully, Cobalt folks like to dine out as much as the Amazon people did.

Ryu bounces back by running for state rep

Ryu bounces back by running for state rep

Cindy Ryu

On the surface, Cindy Ryu is like most people.

She cares for her family. She gets up early to take her 15-year-old son to school and calls to check in with her two daughters who live in other states. She spends time on her computer checking her schedule and answering e-mails. And occasionally, she has date night with her husband, Cody.

Throw in an acupuncture or chiropractor appointment here and there, and it is easy to assume that Ryu leads the life of an average citizen.

The former Shoreline mayor is working on taking her political career beyond city limits. Ryu is running for Washington state representative for the 32nd legislative district, position 1. Read the full story
