Push to save Shriners

Politicians and local business persons are gathering Thursday morning in an effort to convince the Shiners to keep their Spokane hospital open.

It will be bipartisan, with Sen. Maria Cantwell, a Democrat, and Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, a Republican, in front of the hospital building on the lower South Hill. They'll be joined by members of Greater Spokane Inc., which put out a "Save Shriners" announcement Wednesday.

Press conference is 4:30 p.m. Thursday, 5th and Lincoln.
