Matter of Opinion

Weekend editorials: Care to comment?

In Coeur d'Alene, a plan is in the works for building a dog park and adjacent improved Humane Society shelter. We think it's a sign that Coeur d'Alene is movin' on up.

(My favorite subtle wordplay of this weekend's edits? "Embarking.")

On the other side of Spokane, railroads are on the cusp of a big step toward reducing truck traffic on our highways. A rail authority has been formed to administer the Palouse River and Coulee City Railroad -- and on Sunday we said they're finally right on track.

We don't see any "finallys" in the Hanford cleanup though -- chronic delays and setbacks have plagued the process of mopping up the nuclear reservation's hazardous waste, and our Sunday editorial refuses to condone inadequate federal funding for only one area related to nuclear energy: cleanup.
