After eleven years as a band, Sleater-Kinney have decided to go on indefinite hiatus. The upcoming summer shows will be our last. As of now, there are no plans for future tours or recordings. We feel lucky to have had the support of many wonderful people over the years. We want to thank everyone who has worked with us, written kind words about us, performed with us, and inspired us.
But mostly we want to extend our gratitude to our amazing fans. You have been a part of our story from the beginning. We could not have made our music without your enthusiasm, passion, and loyalty. It is you who have made the entire journey worthwhile.
With love and thanks,
From the Olympian
OLYMPIA - A proposal to widen a two-lane stretch of a west-side artery has been affirmed, one year after some officials questioned whether it was "too much pavement too soon."
The City Council on Tuesday night approved a $6.6 million plan to add two more vehicle lanes to Harrison Avenue between Yauger Way and Kaiser Road. Left-turn lanes, bike lanes, sidewalks and landscaping are included.
The decision comes amid warnings from traffic engineers and an independent consultant of growing congestion that no traffic signal or roundabout will cure. More cars are on the way, especially with 840 new homes proposed off the corridor and 1,470 in the application stage.
