Twirl is Closing

We are sorry to report that Twirl Dancewear, 8511 35th Ave NE, is going out of business.  Owner Moire Hale writes,


We thank you for three wonderful years of support- we’ve loved serving this community! Stock up on all your dancewear needs before we close our doors this fall. Sale starts August 17 and will run through September (or while supplies last)

~ Moire & Chuckie Hale, Bodhi & Twirl Staff

Summer hours of operation at Twirl are Monday through Friday, 10 to 5:30, and Saturday 9 to 4.

Vacant Houses

Recently in north Seattle there have been several cases of vacant houses being taken over by squatters. A loophole in occupancy laws makes it extremely difficult to take action on unauthorized entry.  Some squatters have entered foreclosed, vacant homes such as this one on NE 120th Street in Lake City.

City of Seattle regulations require that vacant buildings be secured against entry; however, once entered, it is necessary for neighbors to call 911 within the first few hours that a house has been unlawfully occupied.  Keep an eye on vacant houses in your area, including rentals, which are sometimes entered by squatters during the night.
