    Wheelchair crashes, collapsing drunks, head-sniffers and other aberrations on Spokane's bus system.
      Every once and a while, Leanna Wynecoop’s typically pleasant commute on public transit is punctuated by something odd. Like the other night, when a man reeking of liquor and body odor got on.&ld

    Streets for more people, and a bunch of wilderness.
      Klitzke, who runs the Eastern Washington chapter of Futurewise, a growth-management advocacy group, has helped craft a âeuro;œComplete Streetsâeuro;� law for Spokane. A public hearing for this ordinance will be held next week, and the City Council could vote on it by the end of the year.

    Spokane's mayor green-lights megaloads on city streets. Environmentalists cry foul.
      Oil spokesman Jon Hardin says trucks may only move through the neighborhood between 11 pm and 5 am. So far, about 10 of the 250 loads, which weigh 200,000 pounds and are over 16 feet tall, have come through town, escorted by the Washington State Patrol, Harding says.

    Three passengers say they were kicked off a Spokane bus for discussing bisexuality.
      Nor did Jessica Jahn, 21, and Kaitlyn Bahn, 24, who were with him. They are all transsexuals âeuro;” born one gender but taking hormones to become the other. And they all say they were kicked off the bus in the middle of a South Hill neighborhood, a mile from their bus stop, for discussing bisexuality.

    Is the Spokane Valley City Council rigging its own ballot measure to fail?
      Some blame Spokane County. To combat Sprague’s swelling traffic and clogged intersections, precipitated by the then-overstuffed freeway, the county turned Sprague into a westbound one-way in 2000. In 1999, before the conversion, over 34,000 cars traveled down Sprague, west of Farr Road, every day.

  • A Spokane Trolley?

    Transit officials are lined up behind an electric trolley. Now it's City Hall's turn.
      Proponents hope the trolley would encourage more development downtown. But Chris Cargill, of the nonprofit Washington Policy Center, says there’s no clear evidence trolleys bring growth, but it’s clear they’re expensive. Planners say this one will cost about $36 million.

    Electric car-less Spokane, a forested dispute, bedbugs and tweeting traffic.
      Seattle, and not Spokane, is part of a federally funded project to install electric-car infrastructure in 18 metropolitan areas across the country. The first six were installed this month at Qwest Field and the rest should be finished by the end of the year.

    Perhaps potholes aren’t just another inevitability we have to weather.
      As soon as the snow melted, the full damage became clear: Local streets, blasted with craters, looked positively war-torn. A single pothole on Nevada, according to one report, took out tires on 30 dif

    The railroad fights oversight at an Idaho refueling depot - again.
      Even after it was discovered the new facility had cracks in the concrete fueling platform and bad seals in the underground liners, BNSF continued to refuel trains. It took an Idaho District Court judge to shut down the depot, citing imminent threats to human health and welfare as diesels reached the Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer.

    A new online game tests whether you have the guts to build Spokane's future.

    In one night, Spokane Valley's roadmap was discarded. Where to now?
      The SARP was a roadmap for the next 30 years in Spokane Valley. The plan was to switch a one-mile stretch of the one-way Sprague Avenue to a two-way street, create a downtown in the University City area through zoning regulations and the construction of a city hall, and issue a smattering of aesthetic regulations along the corridor.

    A front-seat view of Spokane's dangerous, sexy side.
      George Thrasher has learned not to ask too many questions. Like when a man slides into the back of his taxicab and rattles off a list of addresses. The instructions are usually the same: Drive to the first location, turn off the cab’s lights and slip into a dark alleyway.
