Never too old: Carnival rides, pig races and deep-fried goodies: name something there you don’t like. You couldn’t do it, could you? The Spokane County Interstate Fair rolls into town this weekend, bringing all the usual goodies and more.

Final word: When Spokane 7 went to print this week, Isamu Jordan’s column was already inside. We never suspected it would be his last. Read Jordan’s interview with Minnesota singer-songwriter Ellis.


Casey Traver lends a guiding hand as her daughter, Stephanie, 13, starts a neighborhood ride Thursday in Spokane Valley. Stephanie learned to ride a bike for the first time at a camp in August. They, along with Stephanie’s twin brother, Gabriel, will ride in Sunday morning’s Spokefest.
