- Civic Light Musicians Jerked Around
- Picture: On March 6th, two dozen people protested at closing night of the Civic Light Opera's show "The Boyfriend" in North Seattle. The theater has been the target of union supporters for refusing to recognize a union of their musicians, who have been on strike since early December. Some theater-goers were obviously disturbed by the protest, and at least one patron left rather than cross the picket. The musicians plan to continue their strike and will picket CLO's next production, "Damn Yankees," scheduled to open on April 22nd.

Support the CRA. No Retreat on Equal Housing Opportunity
- Issue: The Community Reinvestment Act is a little-known piece of Federal legislation with a huge impact. Over the last ten years, it has been responsible for securing over $5 billion in loans for low-income housing projects and other community development projects in Washington State alone. But now it is under attack in Congress, as banks and legislators seek a way to maximize profits even more.
