A Matter Of Opinion

Sunday’s editorials

On Sunday, we commended those who say now is not the time to ask Spokane County voters to pony up $245 million for a new jail. A time of careful consideration should be given to possible alternatives, such as a collaboration with Kootenai County, which also faces a pricey jail proposal.

Also, the Valley View disaster teaches us that those who live in affected areas must know and take seriously the laws and common-sense guidelines regarding fire safety. We think this is a tragic but important opportunity to educate potential burners.
