Gonzaga men set for another tough test from fourth-seeded Dons

You’ve been warned. “Great shooters, and the point guard (Frankie Ferrari) is playing great. Another game just like this,” said Gonzaga coach Mark Few, previewing Monday’s WCC Tournament semifinal date with fourth-seeded San Francisco at 6 p.m. at Orleans Arena.

Surprising Dons entertain No. 5 Gonzaga in San Francisco

Nearly two months into the season, San Francisco is 11-4 – its best 15-game start since 2000 – and Kyle Smith is an early candidate for WCC Coach of the Year as No. 5 Gonzaga (14-0) makes its annual visit to the Hilltop on Thursday.

Capta in’s fond fa r ew ell

When Capt. Kyle Smith of the Salvation Army of Spokane arrived here five years ago, he didn’t know much about Spokane. His Salvation Army career had already taken him from his native New Zealand, through relief work in Rwanda, a five-year stay in Hawaii and inner-city Salvation Army work in Los Angeles. “I honestly didn’t know what to expect about Spokane. I felt like I was being sent away to this little place,” Kyle Smith said. “And then it turned out that Spokane was a great town. I could easily have stayed here longer.”

Carver will build full-sized canoe from spruce trunks for charity

The Salvation Army created quite a log jam on North Division Street and Nora Avenue on May 23.

Scissors, markers, crayons and a box.” Still smiling, the 3-foot-tall Spokane boy headed for the door and slung the pack over his shoulder. “This is big,” he said.

A new place for helping kids, families

The Salvation Army Spokane on Wednesday opened a newly renovated facility on its campus to provide counseling, family visitation and education under one roof. The facility, called the Nurturing Center for Children and Families, will centralize counseling and therapy program services that previously were spread out around the campus.

Sally’s House serves as children’s haven

Three-year-old Kate lived in a dog crate in a meth house in Spokane and walked on hands and knees like an animal. Winston lived in a home with no running water or electricity. He was so dirty it took four changes of bath water to get him clean. Nathan, 8, was almost starved to death by an abusive family.
