They should have been wearing lifejackets while reading the S-R

IN THE FIELD -- Some editors like to feature photos of readers showing off their publications while vacationing in exotic places.

But here at The Spokesman-Review, we like to see people reading the paper close to home, and offering news tips at the same time.

In this photo, Kent Larson and his daughter, Ramsey, pore over the paper -- or should that be pour over the news -- during a Centennial Trail cruise near Avista headquarters. 

The news:   The Spokane River is still running a bit high.

The question:  Isn't it illegal to be reading the paper in the Spokane River without wearing a PFD?
