Rob Curley: Look to us for news, not risk to your health

A newspaper gets used to the idea that some people – mostly bad people – are afraid of us. But not our readers. And definitely not this time. We were told about a handful who recently canceled their subscriptions out of fear of this virus. Both the WHO and the CDC say it is safe to receive packages, including newspapers, at your home.

Rob Curley: Following a Spokane bachelorette’s journey

While most people are deathly afraid to speak in public, there aren’t many microphones or large audiences Katherine Morgan isn’t completely at home with. Still, she might seem like the most unlikely person in Spokane to appear on the live, stage-show version of the popular television show, “The Bachelor.” Yet, there she was Sunday night.

Rob Curley: Making hoops history under the Pavilion’s new lights

There are so many examples of Gonzaga’s game-changing moments that many folks can rattle them off with almost no thought. There’s Casey Calvary’s tip-in against Florida in 1999 that launched one of the longest continuous NCAA Tournament streaks in all of college basketball. It almost seems like yesterday, except no current Zags player had been born when Calvary was shattering backboards on national TV.

Rob Curley: Open hearts, wallets – it’s our kind of day

So many days in a row with nicknames: Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Robbi’s Tired Sunday and Cyber Monday. Then there’s today: Giving Tuesday. It might be the one that impacts a community the most. And for the longest. These are the kinds of presents that keep on giving.

A ‘Princess’ day at the mall

Spokane's Ashlee Karras, who holds the title "Miss Spokane", also appears as a princess at various events and public places as part of a business which provides entertainment. She walked around River Park Square in the costume of Elsa, the heroine of the movies "Frozen" and "Frozen 2", greeting children who loved seeing her with the lovable snowman Olaf. Read Editor Rob Curley's column about Spokane's own "princesses" here.

Rob Curley, bellringer

Leave it to S-R Editor Rob Curley to turn his assigned hour as a Salvation Army bellringer into something like a show. He donned his Jack Skellington costume, invited the Salvation Army band to sit in and passed out cookies and hot cocoa in front of The Spokesman-Review building.

Rob Curley: Kindred spirits of community kindness and a transformational kitchen

Christ Kitchen teaches practical job skills to women in poverty. One of the job programs it’s been working for a couple of years to fund aims to teach these women how to become baristas. A special moment, aided by a big grant from Bank of America, allowed that very thing to happen. Spokesman-Review editor Rob Curley explains how it all happened...

Rob Curley: Hearing the candidates one more time before you vote, only this time with a little more discussion and a little less debate

There have been so many dang debates in Spokane this election season that it’s hard to tell whose heads are swimming the most: the candidates’, the voters’ or the journalists’. I can’t remember if it was Steven Tyler or Ayn Rand who said that anything worth doing is worth overdoing, but judging from my phone’s musical library, a solid guess is Aerosmith. Of course, Shakespeare noted it’s possible to have too much of a good thing. Or maybe that was Bon Jovi. It doesn’t really matter.

Rob Curley: Author Tom Mueller, who has Spokane roots, explains America’s ‘Crisis of Conscience’

Sometimes things are just meant to be. Like when you work for seven years researching and writing a book that takes a massive deep dive into the complicated and often misunderstood world of whistleblowers only to have one of the largest and most important whistleblower cases in our country’s history begin at almost exactly the same time your book is to be released. That’s exactly what happened to Tom Mueller.
