    I cannot walk past Rainier Square without thinking about the White-Henry-Stewart Building. What a loss!

    It’s sad that they had to leave us the bare minimum (The Cobb) to remember this massive building project by. The Rainier Tower could have simply rose out of the middle of these buildings.

    I’m fortunate to have one of the best preserved of the Indian chief heads adorning the area just 15 feet from the desk of my ‘office’ in the state convention center.

    Great to see the original location of the Indian Chief statues.
