    Funds that help keep poor school districts afloat are in danger
      But, for all the community support, they arenâeuro;™t a rich district âeuro;” not like Bellevue or Seattle. Most of Deer Parkâeuro;™s students are poor enough to qualify for free or reduced lunch. But itâeuro;™s low-income districts like Deer Park âeuro;” not Bellevue or Seattle âeuro;” that may lose a crucial funding stream.

    Financial traders get a piece of every pie. Let’s get ours.
      Now a municipal bond is hopelessly quaint in our era of mortgage-backed derivatives, hedge bets against European debt and every other way paper can be packaged, traded and profited from.

      Corey Patnaud is one of the lucky ones. He doesn’t worry about freezing, because he sleeps indoors. He passes his time cleaning the shelter he lives in. He has a caseworker to work with him on

    At three local middle schools, the class of 2017 just got a big boost.
      But these kids will have hundreds of thousands of extra dollars spent on them. They’ll have extra help and extra resources. The extra help will follow them next year and all through high school. They may have their college admission exams, college applications and college visits paid for.

    As the recession reduces education budgets, local churches come bearing manpower and funds.
      Rowan McLean, a 7-year-old in a cartoon vampire shirt at Sheridan Elementary, has been going through some pretty tough times lately. Her parents are divorcing. Sometimes she feels lonely at lunch. She gets in trouble occasionally. But on Tuesdays she sees Kristy, and everything’s all right.

    The president's jobs bill would be a shot in the arm for North Idaho.
      But let’s hope Congress won’t be slow to act on the president’s jobs proposal. September means back to school, back to work, back to normal. Only who knows what “normal” really is anymore? The new normal for Congress appears to be gridlock, or do-nothing, or nothing doing.

    Why budgets never actually get resolved in Congress.
      The S&P called it “brinksmanship.” But really the Republican-led House of Representatives, in concert with their Senate colleagues, are intent on doing nothing more than preventing President Obama from winning a second term.

    WSU connects architects and designers with Spokane's economy. Or at least it used to.
      This “realignment” of WSU’s campuses is caused by cuts of 55 percent to the system’s budget over the last four years and is intended to save $3.2 million per year. The realignment proposals, spelled out by the school’s administration, are designed to deal with a $20 million shortfall in the fiscal-year 2012 budget without laying anyone off.
