  • Honest conversations may be best way to address racism, teens say

Because it’s always going to be a serious thing.” It’s Kids Week here at Q13, when we hear from […]

  • Dating for teens ain’t like it used to be, for better and worse

Social media has expanded their world and their ability to connect. “There’s a whole kind of term called ‘sliding into DMs,’” said Jalen Johnson, a senior at Seattle’s Summit Sierra school.

  • Think teens are consumed by technology? They agree

    Technology is often praised for making life easier and more convenient. When we sat down recently with a panel of teens, they talked about how much easier their lives are thanks to the technology at their fingertips. “If I were to pick any tangible piece of like anything that I would have for the rest of my life, to get me through life, it would be my phone,” said Jalen Johnson, 18, a senior at Seattle’s Summit Sierra school. “It […]

  • Martinez’s ‘amazing’ Mariners journey finds a fitting home in Cooperstown

    SEATTLE — Numbers are the bedrock of any Hall of Fame candidacy. That’s why before and after the announcement last week that Mariners legend Edgar Martinez was elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, his statistics were tossed around often in support. A lifetime .312 batting average and .418 on-base percentage. Two batting titles, seven all-star appearances and five silver slugger awards. But Mariners Chairman Emeritus John Ellis pointed at a different statistic Tuesday as to why the Seattle […]
