Urban logging – A row of majestic trees was cut down on Grand Street by city work crews. The trees got too tall and got in the way of power lines. (SR)

Let them eat ice cream – KREM 2 news anchors are scooping free ice cream cones at Ben & Jerry’s Downtown today, in order to benefit Safety Net of Spokane, which helps foster kids. I recommend grabbing a scoop of Tom Sherry Garcia. (KREM)

The Vic Mackey of Airport Cops? – One Spokane woman is filing a lawsuit against a Spokane International Airport officer, claiming he treated her roughly after issuing her a parking citation. (KXLY)

Gasoline king – Frustrated about gas prices? Don’t be. The gas prices in Spokane are some of the lowest in the nation. (KREM)
