The local Girl Scouts CEO declined a $100,000 gift that excluded trans girls and then raised three times that online. We raise our glass of milk to her—after finishing our Thin Mints.

Kevin Hart

Hart, who’s just five foot four, once said that as a kid he made humor his weapon because he was too small to fight. And though he be but little, he is fiercely funny. (­KeyArena, Sept 12)

Autumn Veatch

After surviving a plane crash in the Cascades that killed her step-grandparents and walking for days to find help, she reflected on the value of little things, like cereal. She’s her own Lucky Charm.

Brian Arbogast

The Gates Foundation’s water, sanitation, and hygiene team director will speak at the WateReuse Symposium this September, just in time to prep us for the coming waterpocalypse.

Cecile Hansen

Feds denied the Duwamish recognition for a second and final time, but the tribe’s chairwoman vows to fight on. The city is named after her long-deceased relative, after all.

Dave Matthews

This Labor Day fans of the jam bandleader will once again trek east for DMB’s 50th show at the Gorge. Like a violin solo that won’t stop, though, it seems a lot more than that. (The Gorge, Sept 4–6)
