from the P-I: Plucky Columbia City theater fights to survive

"We decided to do a stock offering as a way to restructure the debt," Doyle said. The theater plans to offer 480,000 shares of stock in the theater at $1 a share (purchasable in lots of 100 shares) by Jan. 1. The idea has a proven populist punch; a similar "crowdfunding" approach was used to produce the 2009 film "The Age of Stupid," a well-received feature film with an environmentalist message.

abUSed: The Postville Raid

Join internationally acclaimed film maker Luis Argueta, for a screening and discussion of his new film about immigration justice. The 30-minute film, "abUSed" tells the story of the largest and most brutal immigration raid in our nation's history which happened in Postville, Iowa in 2008. Weaving together personal stories of immigrants and a presentation of the forces fueling migration to the U.S., the movie and discussion will spur us to imagine what creative liberation could look like in this, the country's most diverse zipcode (98118).

Genesee CSO Reduction Project -- public meeting

Seattle Public Utilities is working to improve the health of Lake Washington by reducing combined sewer overflows (CSOs). During heavy rains, stormwater and sewage may overflow into the lake — causing a CSO. Seattle Public Utilities has identified locations for the Genesee CSO reduction projects. We plan construction for 2012-2014 at these locations:

  • The parking lot along Lake Washington Blvd. between 48th Ave S & 49th Ave S (property owned by Seattle Parks & Recreation)
  • The open park space at S Alaska St and 54th Ave S (property owned by Seattle Parks & Recreation), or in right of way at 54th Ave S.

Please attend the public meeting on November 9 to learn more. If you would like to attend this meeting but need an interpreter, please call 826-4767.

Seattle Youth Commission -- youth community meeting

The Seattle Youth Commission is a group of 22 Seattleites aged 13-19 from all over the city who are appointed by the Mayor and City Council to connect youth to their elected officials.

They do this in three main ways:

  1. Hosting Youth Community Meetings throughout the city to hear directly from young people.
  2. Using input from the forums to advise and influence the Mayor and City Council.
  3. Hosting the annual Youth Town Hall, which gives all of Seattle's youth the opportunity to talk directly to their Mayor and City Councilmembers.

There's a Youth Community Meeting coming up at Rainier Community Center from 4-6 pm on Tuesday, November 9th; it'll be a great chance for local teenagers to come out and talk to the Youth Commissioners and let them know what your most important issues are.

Sitting in Circles with Rich White Girls

At times funny, biting and somber Sitting in Circles with Rich White Girls: Memoirs of a Bulimic Black Boy is the groundbreaking and crushingly honest reclamation story of a fat, gay, bulimic, black boy raised by white parents and struggling to find beauty, acceptance and safe spaces — in a world short on all.

With playful humor and sharp observance, Sitting in Circles… takes audiences on an intense and insightful journey, along the way unpacking the mother lode of identity construction and self-preserving mechanisms. Yet, with the performer's greatest gift being the ability to find playfulness in the midst of grief these stories are funnier than they are tragic. Ultimately demonstrating how even the most painful of experiences can be reclaimed, transformed, and accepted for what they are: the building blocks of our unique identities.

Nov. 19th & 20th, Doors 6:30pm Show 7pm. more details here
