Crop circles, streaming services and city council meetings this week
Bill Radke reviews the week's news with Crosscut's Mohammed Kloub, Seattle City Council Insight's Kevin Schofield, and The Stranger's Chase Burns.
It looks like King County will not be opening for phase two on June 1st. But, while the county won't be open, houses of worship will be. This week Governor Inslee announced new guidelines for religious centers. What prompted this change?
Plus, if you've walked in a park recently, you might have noticed something strange. Large crop circles cut into the grass. Why are they there? And while crop circles have appeared in the city, something else has disappeared. The Cinerama is no more. What does this mean for Seattle's art and film scenes?
Additionally, the Seattle City Council is considering a few different legislative actions this week. On Wednesday they held a five and a half hour meeting discussing a proposed bill to limit the removal of unsanctioned homeless encampments. Will it pass?
The council is also considering emergency legislation to give gig workers hazard pay. How likely is it to become law?
Also, while the school year is about to wind down here in Washington, colleges are already trying to decide what to do about next year. Should campuses reopen?
And finally, there's a battle brewing on the internet. A battle of the streaming networks. Which should you choose?
