Sen. Patty Murray is in Spokane this afternoon to makr the celebration of a local company, McKistry Co., with Mayor Mary Verner. They’re whooping it up at 1:30 p.m. at the Great Northern Building, 802 E. Spokane Falls Blvd.
The city’s Father’s Day Centennial Celebration Committee will be planting a tree in honor of Dad’s Day at 2 p.m. at Grant Elementary School, 1300 E. 9th Ave. Why a tree and why Grant? you may ask. Because the person who invented Father’s Day, Sonora Smart Dodd was from Spokane and her son, Jack, went to Grant Elementary and later grew up to be in the U.S. Forest Service. (Bet you thought Father’s Day was invented by Hallmark.)
And just when you think late night television has forgot all about former U.S. Sen. Larry Craig, the Daily Show features him on a segment about the perks one misses when leaving the Senate. John Oliver dying to ask about one aspect of flying back to Idaho, while Craig is talking about another aspect, is pretty funny…and Craig demonstrates he still has his singing voice.
