Local News

View from Madison Park

It’s not every day that Gail makes the Seattle Times. Yesterday was such a day, so I am taking note. And the front page no less!

Well, okay, it was just the front page of the local section. And you had to turn to the continuation inside to find her. But she was there. See for yourself, in the online version. At a party I attended this evening, two people who had taken the trouble to turn the page came up to me to say they read about her.

The article describes our neighborhood’s newly established “snow brigade, complete with drivers and walkers willing to fetch groceries and prescriptions, shovel walks, drive homebound residents to warm shelters and even walk dogs. It’s the only organized neighborhood effort in Seattle, city officials say.”

What does this have to do with Gail? Although she didn’t initiate the brigade, she presides over the Madison Park Community Council (as president, though the article describes her as “chair”), and so the brigade is part of her bailiwick. This led the Seattle Times writer to interview, and quote, her.

Let’s hope the snow brigade sees limited duty this winter.
