Sister didn’t hesitate when need for a kidney arose

The words put a lump in your throat and moisten your eyes, but the touches and glances say so much more. Shayla and Ivy Bush are sitting on their parents’ couch recounting a story that needs all the reassurances they can muster.

Civic’s fundraiser packs in-concert format with top talent

The Spokane Civic Theatre’s annual fundraiser show, “West Side Story,” will be performed in-concert, which means not fully staged. Yet from a strictly musical standpoint, that might be a plus. It means that some of Spokane’s top musical professionals – who can’t always commit to a full-fledged 12-week production schedule – have been able to sign on for this two-show run.

Tigers claim title

It was a huge win against an archrival; a lopsided triumph that merited a loud, boisterous celebration. But Lewis and Clark’s girls soccer team kept the postmatch merriment at Hart Field respectfully restrained following Friday afternoon’s 3-0 victory over perennial Greater Spokane League power Mead – and rightfully so.

Education notes: Rogers to induct alumni into Walk of Fame

Rogers listed among nation’s best schools

Rogers High School has been added to Newsweek’s list of the 1,600 best U.S. high schools. The magazine’s list was released last week but is revised as additional entries are reviewed.

LC’s Hana Alicic is driven to serve – and to succeed

In 1994, when she was 2, Lewis and Clark High School senior Hana Alicic emigrated from Bosnia with her family. Though she doesn’t remember the war and campaign of ethnic cleansing that prompted her family to flee, that background and subsequent visits to Bosnia have given her a deep commitment to tolerance. “When I became old enough to know what caused the war, it made me aware of bigotry,” she said. “I get along with all different types of people. I like diversity. I appreciate people who are a little bit different.”

Thomas, LC, Bezdicek win

Everything was different for Chessey Thomas, except the outcome. The Lewis and Clark High senior won her second consecutive State 4A golf title Wednesday at Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco. All she had to do was put a 2-under-par 70 with her opening-round 68 to hold off Kentwood’s Rui Li by two strokes for the championship.

Spokane teens get on board for angling

The generosity of local anglers who share their sport goes beyond little kids – to the teenagers the little ones soon become. On Wednesday, a group from the Spokane Walleye Club and other sportsmen’s clubs trailered eight boats to West Medical Lake to meet 21 students from Lewis and Clark High School’s outdoor learning class.

Grant instrumental for Lewis and Clark

Sticky valves, dents and old age have plagued Lewis and Clark High School’s band and orchestra as the instruments grow older than the students. But a hard-earned $25,000 grant from Pepsi awarded last week will help replace about a quarter of the much-needed tools.

Former LC Tiger January enjoying life in the WNBA

Briann January was a starter for the first game of her rookie season in the WNBA and on the bench by the third game but the former Lewis and Clark star couldn’t be happier. “I was caught a little off guard when I saw my name on the board for the starters,” January recalled of her professional debut for Indiana on June 6. “Earlier in the day coach (Lin Dunn) came up to me and said, ‘You know you’re starting.’ I thought she was joking.”

LC among 1,500 best U.S. high schools

Getting the business

Amanda Sackett, 17, is often one of the very first students to arrive at Lewis and Clark High School, and she’s just as frequently one of the last to leave. “I guess school really has become my hobby,” Sackett said, smiling. “Some of my friends would say that I spend way too much time here.”
