Regarding our upcoming Tribute issue for Mike Wang, Robert Townsend, and Brian Fairbrother. We’ve been touched by the response . To clarify deadlines for those of you emailing about that, we want this to be very nice! These men deserve a beautiful job so we do not want rushed stories. But keep in mind that this is our next print issue, so please get us your text and pics as soon as possible.
Also, while we are deeply moved by the micro-localness of the recent events, and how it has affected many of our readers, we welcome material about other Seattle area bike accident victims, (for instance, we are aware of the friends and family of John Przychodzen, who died in Kirkland this summer after being hit by a car.)
Finally, if you have general pieces about grief or other ideas that might fit into the Memorial theme, just ask. And local businesses (or anybody) wanting to place print ads or compose Memorial tribute boxes, please call or email, as we’re using a different ad rate structure for this issue (sliding scale) so that those who want to get something in print can, without stressing about the cost.
