The conversation on sexual harassment has been stifled since 1998, when the leader of the National Organization for Women defended a man in executive position who took advantage of women under his authority.

Liz Smith, the syndicated gossip columnist whose mixture of banter, barbs, and bon mots about the glitterati helped her climb the A-list as high as many of the celebrities she covered, died Sunday at the age of 94.

Getting There: About those giant dirt piles…

The dirt piles along many main Spokane corridors come from the city’s massive project to stop sewage from entering the Spokane River, but the work is having an impact on traffic, in ways both good and bad.

Faith and Values: Tolerance, a step toward embrace

It was Spokane Public Radio’s annual thank you event for underwriters and volunteers. Ashbrook usually hosts his show live from Boston, but is on a “Listening to America Tour.” Spokane was his only scheduled stop west of the Mississippi. The blue team panelists were Peter Goldmark, former Washington state commissioner of public lands, and Cody Desautel, natural resource director for the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Indian Reservation. I represented the red team.

Rob Curley: One last ride ’round as county fair winds down
