‘What can we do for somebody else?’: Spokane lost a beloved musician, writer and friend Thursday, when 37-year-old Isamu Jordan died in his home. Jordan has worked for The Spokesman-Review in some capacity since 1992.

The trip to wedded bliss: After 18 years, two states and one Supreme Court decision, Kat Pinette and Hosanna Lahaie-Lee said their “I do’s.” The Alaska couple joins 74 couples from across the nation who have traveled to Spokane for their weddings.

Spokane 7

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.
