The Future of Tolling
Premieres Fri., Jan. 27, at 7 p.m.
Since December 29, 2011, the new SR-520 toll has been taking a toll on many drivers trying to cross Lake Washington. How have traffic patterns changed, and is the state on track to raise the revenue it needs for a replacement bridge? Looking ahead, are Washingtonians willing to accept more tolling across the state for better roads & highways? Don’t miss our discussion with studio guests Craig Stone, Tolls Director for the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT), Mark Hallenbeck, Director of the Washington State Transportation Center, Richard Ford, Chairman of the Washington State Transportation Commission, and Doug MacDonald, former State Transportation Secretary (2001-2007).

CityStream with Nicole Sanchez
Premieres Thurs., Jan. 26, 7 p.m.
This week CityStream visits a local school where students are taking a class about compassion…from a teacher much younger than themselves. The Roots of Empathy program aims to teach kindness and understanding through interaction with a baby, and what the kids are learning will become lessons for life. Then join host Nicole Sanchez at Seattle City Hall, where we’ll learn about a local network of neighborhood news blogs and meet with city officials in preparation for Seattle City Hall’s Open House event this coming Saturday, January 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m..

Hitchens, Havel, and Kim Jong-il Remembered
Premieres Tue., Jan. 31, 8 p.m.
Within the space of four days in December, three public figures died. Obituary page proximity aside, Christopher Hitchens, Kim Jong-il, and Václav Havel had nothing particular in common—except they each lived emphatically larger than life on the global stage. Some local luminaries deliver remembrances/assessments of these men and their cultural impact… although not all will be warmly remembered.

Governing for Racial Equity Conference: Why Race Matters
Premieres Tue., Jan. 31, at 9:30 a.m.
Seattle’s Race and Social Justice Initiative (RSJI) is a citywide effort to realize the vision of racial equity. The Initiative works within Seattle City government and with community leaders to get to the root cause of racial inequity: institutional racism. Government officials and employees from Washington and Oregon recently met to discuss this vital subject, with topics including the best practices to address institutional racism, measuring and assessing racial equity outcomes, applying a racial equity tool to budget and policy decisions, and more.
