An Ode To Graduating (Spec)tator Tots

To the graduating Spectator staff: You have been with me through it all. You guided me when I was a volunteer writer with a healthy fear of the editors I would soon call my friends. As a staff writer you encouraged me to pursue the stories that piqued my curiosity—and sometimes rage. You trusted me […]

Festival Highlights From The Spectator

Just Get Up And Dance Melissa Lin News Editor It seems that Folklife has evolved into one of the most amusing hodgepodges of cultural celebrations in Seattle—or perhaps it is just me who has evolved to see it that way.
