Seattle Press
Archive 1998-2006
This page contains links to a partial archive of the print editions of the Seattle Press 1998-2006. Much of the archive consisted of event announcements and transient events; we have retained a sampling, along with feature articles and editorials, to give a sense of the flavor of the old SP. The online edition did not fully reflect the print edition in early years, and we've omitted page components that contained obsolete links.

In 1998 Tom Herriman rescued the Seattle Press from oblivion and created a community resource in the northern half of the city. For several years his perspective on life in metropolitan Seattle and that of other talented writers and editors was much appreciated by north end neighbors.

By coincidence of driving past the SP office in 1998 and spotting Tom's sign reading "The Death of the Seattle Press has been greatly exaggerated," the Clark Internet team met Tom and offered its services. The result is this website. In cooperation with interim owners we maintained it actively. Since 2006 we've made the content available and offered additional services to the community. Readers are invited to contribute, and businesses and other organizations have a platform to present and discuss the needs of their firms and the city. Clark Internet invites inquiries; we specialize in web services for local businesses and non-profits.
