Why we send our daughters to college

SHELLFISHING — After four years at Western Washington University, my daughter, Hillary, finally got out with a group of West Siders and learned how to dig clams.

These are outdoor life skills you can't learn at home in Spokane.

Next, she needs to find her way onto a boat to land a big salmon.  Ideally, the boat would have an extra seat available for her dad.
