  • About the Peirone Prize

      Earlier this year, I wrote a cover story about my own grandfather, Joe Peirone. It was our family’s story and the story of Peirone Produce, but it seemed to take on a universal quality a lot of

    Emily Paulson can feed 200 people for 15 bucks. So what have you done lately?
      Stylish blonde hair, dangly earrings, form-fitting pedal pushers, precarious heels. One night a week, I’d heard, she tends bar at the Satellite. An upper arm sports a ‘40s-style pin-up girl tattoo. She’s a former Lilac City Roller Girl, too: “One year,” she says proudly, “I won Hematoma of the Year.”

    Two local businesses that dish up a lot more than just a good meal.
      Restaurant owners have enough to worry about. Are the forks clean? Is that fish fresh? Is my staff happy? Am I going to make money this month? It’s a high-stress, high-turnover business. But many restaurants (and other businesses) in Spokane master these details enough to ask the bigger questions, too: Am I supporting my fellow businesses? Am I giving back to my community? Am I making a difference?

    When women have nowhere to go, Women’s Hearth gives them a place to call home
      When she begins her story, Deborah Gibson tells it in such a way that makes it seem like it isn’t her own. She’s stonefaced. Detached. She recalls the time last spring when she realized she couldn’t pay the rent on her north-side home anymore. Her son couldn’t help her.
