I have to work tomorrow morning, so I can't go. But I thought at least one of you might be able to give a shout out for the clubs, want to, and not be aware it is happening.

You know, I haven't tried to contact anyone on the city council much less go to a meeting for a simple reason: I don't live there. Personally, I think they're fools if they turn down money from what New Yorkers call bridge and tunnel people.

yeah, I think they are more focused on who actually has the ability to vote for or against them. :|

staxxy, what exactly is the plan? it doesn't really say on here - is it a zoning issue? i'm guessing it's some stupidity that the council has come up with to tell them dang kids to get offa their lawn, but would like more info.

Thank you for your interest in the Neighborhoods & Nightlife Ordinance. Yesterday Councilmember Drago and I presented a proposal that we believe strikes a balance between a vibrant nightlife and safe, livable neighborhoods. To see the proposal, scroll to the bottom of the main page of my website:

The Council, through the Economic Development and Neighborhoods Committee which I chair, has reviewed the issues related to nightlife for three months. We've read hundreds of helpful emails and letters from constituents, received presentations from neighborhood leaders and representatives of the nightlife industry, and heard from directors of each of the City departments that has a role in monitoring nightlife activities, as well as the Washington State Liquor Control Board.

We've also reviewed the Mayor's proposed legislation and compared it to the laws and programs of other major US cities. The Mayor's proposal is tough on clubs regarding violence, as it should be. But it is also overly harsh on clubs, because it could mean that an establishment could lose its license for seemingly arbitrary reasons.

That said, Council and I have heard it loud and clear that neighborhoods need ways to insulate themselves from nightclub noise. In Councilmember Drago's and my proposal, clubs that violate noise standards could be fined as much as $6,000, with the option for the club to spend that money on better noise insulation to avoid future problems.

I encourage you to a look at our proposal. You might also find the stories in the Seattle Times and the Stranger Slog beneficial to help you sort through the complexities of this issue:

The next opportunity for you to voice your opinion in front of Council will be this Monday, June 4, 5:30 p.m. at a Public Comment Meeting at City Hall, Council Chambers, 2nd Floor. You may also make comments at the next Economic Development and Neighborhoods Committee meeting on Thursday, June 7, 9:30 a.m., also in Council Chambers. Or, I welcome your email at The Committee may vote on the proposal on June 21 at its 6pm meeting at University Heights.

Again, thanks for your thoughtful input into this decision-making process. I look forward to your comments on our proposal.

be who you are, communicate any fears you have to him, and if he starts acting weird, tell him to call me. ;)

*hugs* He will need his own space now and then. And he will need to have secrets. Both of those are innate to being a Pisces, but neither of them need to be big deals. Remember that he isn't going to keep anything important as a secret, so you don't have to worry about that. And his getting space isn't about getting away from you at all, it is about him getting some time to refocus his brain. He gets a build up of things, and he needs to do a brain dump now and again to refresh. The only part of him needing space that you should take personally is that he is getting space so he can be more present when he is with you instead of still being distracted by the every day stress crap. :)
