Some Seattle City Council members&nbsp;support&nbsp;a fee increase, but opponents say it’s too late in the game to make changes and risk cooling off growth in one of Seattle’s fastest growing neighborhoods. We talk it over with Councilmember Nick Licata and developer A-P Hurd.</p><p> Wed, 27 Mar 2013 16:00:00 +0000 Producer 10421 at http://kuow.org Should Developers Subsidize Housing In South Lake Union?

In this episode, we tell stories about what happens when people cross borders, risking their lives and their reputations to take a chance on the other side.</p> Tue, 20 Nov 2012 04:00:00 +0000 Producer 3832 at http://kuow.org State Of The Re:Union: The Borderland Of Tucson Canadian Border Agent Shot At Peace Arch Crossing http://kuow.org/post/canadian-border-agent-shot-peace-arch-crossing A Canadian border guard is still recovering after being shot at the Peach Arch crossing north of Blaine, Washington.
