Spokane mayoral campaign pushes community to question, defend safety of downtown library

Spokane police are called much more often to the STA Plaza and other public locations downtown than the library.

Huckleberries: A challenge to do a good deed and keep it to yourself

Facebook friend Ryan Brodwater has a message for everyone who bounces from one social media fad to the next: “Facebook sure is great at informing people what they care about, for that particular week. (Two weeks ago), it was amazing to see how many people had close, personal relationships with Robin Williams. (Last) week, everyone is suddenly committed to fighting ALS, by pouring water over their heads.” Ryan offers his own challenge, via Facebook: Donate blood. Volunteer for an hour. Clean up a public space. Ryan wants people to do “something random and meaningful that actually benefits others” – and not to post anything about it on social media. Ryan finishes his thought by repeating the words of a mountain-climbing friend: “I don’t need to sign the summit log. I know I was there.”
