I snapped this photo at Daejeon Park in North Beacon Hill. Look at how beautiful the leaves are. Daejeon Park, featuring a Korean pavilion, is named after one of Seattle’s sister cities, Daejeon, South Korea. You should visit for yourself, as the leaves will soon fall as the cold settles in. (end)

Chef Lisa Nakamura

You would think cooking delicious meals, finding fresh ingredients, and creating inspiring menus are a chef’s duties.

But Chef Lisa Nakamura, owner of Allium on Orcas Island, has a different take on her job.
“Don’t ask me what I do. I bring people to the table,” said Nakamura in a video interview, shown at Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS)’s culinary dinner on Oct. 8 at the Westin Bellevue Hotel. Read the full story

Chelsea Clinton

InterActiveCorp IAC named Chelsea Clinton to its board. The U.S. online media holding company  has offered her $300,000 a year. Obviously, IAC picked her because of her name, not because of what she has done.

“Your mother’s name is nothing!” I told my son, laughing. “It would never find you a job. Dude, you’d better work hard. You are on your own.” (end)

Gary Locke

“Why is Gov. Gary Locke going to China?” asked an editor of a small town newspaper located close to Mt. Rainier, at the Washington National Publishers Association’s convention held at the Everett Holiday Inn last Friday.

“Because he’s been appointed to be the U.S. Ambassador to China.” I replied. Locke was confirmed by the Senate in July.

“I had no idea,” she said.

I don’t mean to stereotype small town folks, but many live in their own world. The head of a small newspaper is frequently a jack of all trades and doesn’t have time to get to know what’s going on in the outside world. Read the full story
