Cease & Desist


your Wikli-fix: cease and desist

'Tis the season … to cease 'n' desist. Yesterday we heard the latest news in the Cinema's ongoing travails — sounds pretty bleak, but Paul and friends keep fighting for that happy ending. As we head into our darkest season, this Wikli offers a bunch of ways to raise your spirits and a glass, and to jump-start your holidays.

You can post a calendar event — here's how.

Columbia City Community Chorus fall concert

The Columbia City Community Chorus, directed by Kathleen Tracy, presents their Fall Concert, Harboring Each Other. The event will be a benefit for the Refugee Women's Alliance. The multi-generational Chorus will sing a spirited and moving set of songs both original and contemporary, with a few surprises thrown in! The Chorus will be joined by Columbia City musicians Matt Kelly and Joanne Laterjung Kelly. It'll be a good time, for a good cause!

$5 - 20 suggested donation.

Macabee Martial Art

Conditioning is the key to all of our training, weather it be Pai Lum Kung Fu or Commando krav Maga. The body and the mind are linked, and one cannot be healthy without the other. If the body is in bad shape and not taken care of, then the mind cannot be focused or disciplined.

Macabee Martial Arts trains the body aerobically and anaerobically. It trains the muscles to move quickly in order to respond to threats. Along with physical conditioning, Sports Yoga and Chinese stretches are taught to keep the body limber and injury free.

Kung Fu is a Chinese term used to denote a person who has acquired a great amount of skill through training over a long period of time. Macabee Martial Arts aims to train a persons mind, body and spirit to be in harmony with each other as well as his or her environment.

new neighborhood apartment proposals

Tuesday December 14th at 6:30pm, the Department of Planning and Development will hold a public meeting to gather comments and provide feedback about two separate projects in our neighborhood. The meetings are at Northwest African American Museum, 2400 S Massachusetts St, Studio 1.

The first project is at 3701 S Hudson St, a 136-unit apartment building located at the NW corner of the St Gobain site, behind the Columbia Motors building. The design firm is Runberg Architecture Group and the developer is Harbor Properties. This will be this project's second meeting, and this might be the last chance for neighbors and the Design Review Board to weigh in. That session starts at 6:30pm.

The second is for 4484 Martin Luther King Jr Way S, to the north of the Rainier Vista Boys and Girls Club. It's a 52-unit apartment building intended to house low-income residents. SMR Architects is the designer, and Mercy Housing is the developer. This is the first meeting for this project — it was originally scheduled for 11/22, but it got snowed out. The second session starts at 8pm.

Paula's Soaps open house sale

Saturday and Sunday, December 11 & 12th, from 11 to 5, we invite you to join us at 4814 43rd Ave S for our not-so-annual sale. Paula's Soaps is still a thriving enterprise, although part-time now, and creating new and interesting soaps has always been my favorite way to spend a day.

Some years I get well enough organized to host an open house, and some years I don't. This is a good year! I have a great selection — more than 20 different varieties and some lovely new soap dishes to match them. They will all be displayed for your sensory pleasure. Maybe you'll find a perfect little gift for someone special — like yourself!

Winter Solstice Celebration needs you

Calling all those interested in helping plan a 3rd annual Columbia City Solstice Celebration!

There are rumblings of interest in another solstice party. This year we don't have the financial and coordination support from SEEDArts, so if this is going to happen we'll need to get some helping hands to make it work.

A few pieces are in place: we've got two possible locations (the new Cultural Corner or the Southside Commons), I'm willing to put on another lantern-making workshop, and Dan's ready to make a labyrinth again. We've got the poetry stylings of Paul Nelson and his SPLAB compadres, and I'm working on rounding up some singers.
