The Killers, back in Utah
The alt-rock band The Killers started in Las Vegas, but Utah has always claimed them as their own because of lead vocalist Brandon Flowers’ upbringing in Nephi, Utah. That Utah childhood was the inspiration for the songs on the band’s folk-tinged 2021 album “Pressure Machine.” The Killers return to Utah, for a show Tuesday, August 30, at Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City. Johnny Marr, legendary guitarist for The Smiths, is the opening act. Show starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets available at vivintarena.com.
Serving chili, for a good cause
After going virtual for the last couple years because of COVID-19, the Great Salt Lake Chili Affair is back and in person this year, on Wednesday, Aug. 31, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Salt Palace Convention Center, 100 S. West Temple, Salt Lake City. The Road Home has hosted the event since 1986, to support the organization’s programs and services to help people step out of homelessness. For more information, and to buy tickets or sponsorships, go to theroadhome.org.
How strong is ‘The Fortress’?
Real Salt Lake fans like to call their home pitch, Rio Tinto Stadium, as “The Fortress,” an intimidating place for other teams to visit. But the RioT hasn’t been that mighty of late. RSL hasn’t won there since July 17, and since then has tallied two losses and two draws. The team hopes to turn those fortunes around with a rare Wednesday night game on Aug. 31, facing Minnesota United. The game starts at 7:30 p.m. Tickets available at rsl.com.
The Urbanist is excited to announce two more events in our summer series. This Saturday (August 27) we’ll be meeting at Discovery Park at 11am and hiking the Loop Trail, starting the hike from the North parking lot around 11:35am. RSVP for the Discovery Park walking tour.
At 534 acres, Discovery Park is the largest city park in Seattle. The Loop Trail is a great way to take in the spectacular variety the park has to offer, from thick old growth forests to flowery meadows to the scenic Magnolia bluffs overlooking the Salish Sea. The hike is about three miles with some rolling hills, but no major elevation change. The trail is well-kept, but it is not fully accessible for people with disabilities.
The park used to be a military base (Fort Lawton) before it was decommissioned and converted to a park in the 1960s. The fledgling park was the site of one of the most dramatic nonviolent demonstrations in Seattle history when a 1970 Indigenous occupation of part of the fort led to the creation of the Daybreak Star Indian Cultural Center on a northern section of the property.
“Led by Bernie Whitebear (Sin Aikst), Bob Satiacum (Puyallup) and indigenous peoples of Western Washington, 100+ Native Americans and supporters occupied areas of Fort Lawton using a base camp just outside the fence line,” the City of Seattle website notes. “Famous supporters such as Jane Fonda and Black Panther chapter of Seattle helped increase national attention to the cause.”
More recently, activism is leading to an affordable housing complex being added, as the last remaining Fort Lawton Army Reserve compound is being decommissioned and its 34 acres converted to housing and recreational space, including about five acres to be added to Discovery Park. In 2019, the Seattle City Council approved a redevelopment plan to create affordable housing on the site, with at least 235 homes in the works. Magnolia homeowner activists led by Elizabeth Campbell fought the affordable housing and mounted a legal challenge, but they have only succeeded in slowing down the project rather than stopping it. Urbanists and housing advocates rallied in support of the project and opponents have all but exhausted legal avenues.
Urbanist staff will be on hand to answer questions about Discovery Park and related plans, but participants will also be free to mingle and take in the natural beauty during the hike.
Getting there: Metro’s Route 33 bus stops at the North parking lot. We’ll congregate at the picnic table near the bus stop (Illinois Avenue & Texas Way), which is the end of the line, and hit the trail shortly after the Route 33 run scheduled to arrive at 11:35am shows up. Thanks to the protected bike lanes on Gilman Avenue W, biking to Discovery Park is also a great option. If you’re coming from Ballard, it’s also possible to cross the Ballard Locks and take the secret forested path through Kiwanis Memorial Preserve Park, which is accessed from 33rd Avenue W. There isn’t specified bike parking area at the North parking lot, but there are lots of signposts to lock to. If you are taking an app-based bike, be aware more operators cut e-assist and do not their bikes to be parked within Discovery Park boundaries so you may want to park at the edge of the park and walk the rest of the way.
Cowen Park Potluck and Ravenna Park Walk
On Tuesday August 30th, The Urbanist is hosting a potluck picnic at Cowen Park starting at 5:30pm. We’ll have snacks to share, but we encourage folks to bring something to contribute or snack on/sip yourself. This social event is intended to take advantage of summer to get outdoors and enjoy Seattle’s beautiful park system.
Ravenna Park and the neighboring Ravenna Boulevard were designed by the Olmsted brothers as part of a plan to given Seattle a world-class park system. Cowen Park is the adjoining park to the west also integrated into the Olmsted-designed system, with the ravine trail starting at the northern edge of Cowen Park. Stand in the middle of Ravenna ravine and you hardly know you’re in the middle of a bustling city, with a new trove of skyscrapers rising just to the south in the U District, as giant trees provide thick canopy overhead.
After snacking and chatting at Cowen Park, we’ll wander into Ravenna Park to enjoy the Olmsted-designed trail system and get lost in the trees. The Ravenna walk will start at 7pm. The ravine trail is well-maintained gravel and has a steep hill at the start but is accessible to people with disabilities.
Getting there: Cowen Park is well served by transit, including Route 45, 67, and 73. It’s 0.4 miles southeast of Roosevelt Station, making light rail an easy way to get there. There are also good biking options. From the west, protected bike lanes connect to the park via Ravenna Boulevard. The Burke-Gilman trails gets within a few blocks of Ravenna Park, with the ravine trail connecting through to Cowen Park.
Doug Trumm is the executive director of The Urbanist. An Urbanist writer since 2015, he dreams of pedestrianizing streets, blanketing the city in bus lanes, and unleashing a mass timber building spree to end the affordable housing shortage and avert our coming climate catastrophe. He graduated from the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance at the University of Washington. He lives in East Fremont and loves to explore the city on his bike.

UTRCA Receives Funding for Celebrating Natural Connections events (media release: August 16, 2022)
With the support of municipalities and community organizations, the Upper Thames River Conservation Authority (UTRCA) has obtained more than $230,000 in funding support from the Canadian Heritage Celebration and Commemoration Program Reopening Fund. The funds are being used to host a series of free “Celebrating Natural Connections” public events in natural spaces across the Upper Thames River watershed.
“Celebrating Natural Connections will feature 10 public hikes and two virtual hikes, led by community groups and UTRCA environmental education staff,” said Teresa Hollingsworth, UTRCA Community and Corporate Services Manager. “
There will also be activities, displays, and presentations, and a commemorative item will be installed at many locations to recognize the contributions of local front line workers. Local artists and municipalities will be involved, as well as hiking, naturalist, and angler clubs.”
The UTRCA would especially like to invite all those community members that have been instrumental in helping others through the pandemic.
The first event is taking place at Burgess Park in the City of Woodstock on Saturday, August 27, from 10 am to 2 pm. For more information about the upcoming events, please visit: www.thamesriverevents.ca
“We’re thrilled to receive the fund enabling us to host these events in our watershed,” said Hollingsworth. “Throughout the pandemic, we were reminded of the importance of our natural spaces for people’s well-being and we’re honoured to provide programming for the public at these sites. These Celebrating Natural Connections events also let us join our community partners and municipalities in recognizing the efforts of front line workers in the response to COVID-19.”
This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada.

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Black August events in Indianapolis will begin Wednesday. It’s an annual commemoration of Black prisoner resistance movements. Created roughly 40 years ago on the west coast, and is now recognized in cities around the country.
It’s easy to look at some of the Black August events as somewhat controversial. As many of the people highlighted were convicted of crimes. But advocates say there’s often much more to the story.
Black prisoner resistance and rebellion movements go back hundreds of years. And this man — who goes by The King Trill, is doing work to shine a light on ongoing movements.
“I carry myself like a king now because, I didn’t used to carry myself like that,” The King Trill said.
The King Trill lived a total of 14 years incarcerated and looks at his own experience to inspire his work. He is partnering with the Indiana Department of Corrections Watch, a grassroots organization in part focused on prison reform, and prison legal support.
Starting Aug.10, the IDOC Watch will hold a series of Black August events. Which includes panel discussions, and a documentary about the Pendleton 2.
“When we came across these guys and their story, it had such power and magnitude because you hear about people standing up to oppression,” The King Trill said.
In February 1985, John Cole and Christopher Trotter were a few of the men in what’s know now as the Pendleton Correctional facility, to lead a prison riot against guards accused or racism and brutalizing prisoners.
News 8 asked, “What do you say to those people who say that’s the penalty you pay?”
“It’s a tough question, but those guys did stand up and I’m hopeful after the audience sees the documentary and sees these details, they’ll be able to see that wow these guys were put in an incredible incredibly difficult position,” The King Trill said.
Several people were injured and guards were held hostage. Cole and trotter combined received roughly 200 years. They’ve served about 40 years of that, both men are now in their 60s, looking to find freedom.
