Best garage sale evah

tSB

It is. Believe it. Our homies over at the Service Board are raising money for their very last snowboarding trip of the summer (down to Mt. Hood). If you’ve ever wanted to get some lightly-used snowboarding gear, and support one of the most awesome mentoring programs around at the same time, Saturday’s your day.

The tSB garage sale is going down from 8-4 on the corner of Orcas St. and Rainier Ave in Seattle, just north of Columbia City. For real, it’s a great chance to pick up clutch equipment on the cheap, and you support one of the best groups around.

Be there!

Basquiat

For every time he becomes a cliche there are two or three more where he’s still mind blowing.

Rachael says No New Jail

Every month, the dynamic, smart, and ready-for-action interns at the WA Bus organize ShortBus, the Bus’s all-ages political throwdown. In April, ShortBus attendees not only made superfly Bus shirts (sneak preview right here), but they asked other young people why they support Initiative 100, the No New Jail initiative. What did they say? Well, see for yourself!

Hella News Flash

newsboyPertinent news tidbits, straight from the Bus’s mouth to your ear.

  • Pink slips are in for teachers, 2,922 of them to be exact. No corner of the state is left untouched. Ouch. This is a tough time for education.
  • And deciding who gets laid off is far from simple – students across the state rallied in support of teachers who got their layoff notices. More on this phenomenon to come…
  • In other big changes, Washington is still a very white state… wait, that’s not a change. But communities of color continue to grow, with the largest group, Latinos, making up 10% of the state population, and the majority of two Eastern Washington counties.
  • SEA to SD at 200 miles per hour? On a train? That sounds like fun. Will it happen? (bonus joke for the people who recognize this SNL reference: Look at me Poseidon, I’m on a train!)
  • And finally, if you’re in Ballard or Magnolia, watch out for the bear!!!
