Issue Correction

We would like to correct two errors in the Jim Knapp obituary in the last issue. Knapp is survived by his brother William, and Joan’s sister’s children; Joan Rivers, Nancy Frischmann, Carrie Bolle, and Peter Ruliffson, and Joan’s grand-niece Melody Reimer. We would also like to credit Steve Griggs for sharing this beautiful obituary with our community.

Office Space Availability

There are currently a number of office spaces available at the Jack Straw Cultural Center’s beautiful University District building, just steps from the new U District light rail station! You would join folks like Sound Theatre Company, KBFG FM, Floating Bridge Press, and others working just upstairs, and have any number of opportunities for interaction with the pals at Jack Straw. Suites 206-210 are contiguous, and may be rented individually or in combination. From small office spaces to large common areas, there’s something for everyone in search of a space to hone their craft.
