Re: “Psych ward at Sacred Heart retains doctors, agrees to cut bed count by two-thirds

I am glad you have posted a more accurate article about the psych dept at SHMC this time. Yes there are 72 beds but there is also an outpatient child program known as the BEST program. It is exciting that SHMC is adding more support staff to help the doctors. In addition to ARNP's, there will be someone to help with insurance companies too. And in the BEST program, psychologists will be helping more with the behavioral aspects while the doctors concentrate on just the meds. SHMC is also talking more to the staff about how support staff might help in other ways. This is the first time in years that admin is seriously looing at what we need instead of just how to cut more from our program. In the end the patients will get a much better treatment program than there is now.

Re: “Hopeless for Heroin

This story is eerily similar to the one my family is experiencing now, although our story hasn't finished yet. These kids are allowed to come and go as they please from detox centers and check themselves out easily from rehab when in fact their minds are so clouded by the drugs they inject that they should be deemed "insane." Police often don't respond and claim "there are no available patrols." Emergency room facilitators merely nod when the suggestion of an attempted suicide has brought this child to their care and yet they release the kids, even when they can barely walk or talk as they leave the ER. Detox centers are almost impossible to find much less find an open bed for the addict. Rehab facilities are over booked, under staffed and it doesn't matter because these addicts have the choice to stay or not. No funding? THESE ARE OUR CHILDREN! Find the money to help them! One CPS case worker told me this week there is a "new batch of pure heroine hitting the streets" and claimed he had already removed children from 5 families and lost 2 addicts this week alone. This isn't just an epidemic. It's an atrocity that no family should EVER have to suffer. FIND THE FUNDING! Stop letting these addicts decide they simply want to leave. Something needs to change. Quickly.....She was 18 years old and had plenty of life ahead of her. My child is 26 and has plenty of life ahead of her. Hundreds of young adults are out there right now and all of them deserve a chance to the life they deserve. We have to change something.....

Re: “Beware, Be Ready

If you look at the aftermath of Katrina you will see that 99.99% of all democrats will not prepare in the least. They will sit idle and wait for Uncle Foodstamp to send in the military with hot chow and blankets to feed and cloth them. If you prepare, they will attack you and demand you give up your goods and belongings, they have a "right" to a "fair share" after all.

The next quake could be in 400 years or a thousand, they have no earthly way of accurately predicting this event. It is as mysterious as "global warming" and as impossible to predict as it would be to get an accurate forecast TODAY for September 15th.

Prepare all you like, if the power goes off for five days, the democrats will, rob rape, loot and burn whatever is left and no one will come to aid those who planned for their future. That is the way of the democrat, punish planning and success and reward criminality, sloth and ignorance.

Re: “The Trumpenstein Monster

Given the choice of an American who made his billions investing in America and feels compelled to speak his mind while every politician in federal service lines up to sell the nation to foreign invaders, terrorists, dictators and corporations OR a morally bankrupt woman who has filled her pockets with $2 BILLION dollars in bribes and graft as she and her morally bankrupt rapist husband robbed the nation blind, I'll take Trump.

The fact this paper supports a criminal like Hillary Clinton and feels no reason o question any of her scandals, schemes or corruption renders any opinion of it's staff valueless.

Re: “Barred from Help

This is too one-sided to be informative or eye opening. How about an article informing the public about the number of felonies (assaults) committed against Spokane hospital workers or mention the number of people waiting for psychiatric evaluations or competency evaluations in our city? I'm sure that ESH is following the law as much as they can with what monies they are given...

Re: “Barred from Help

Inlander, I am very disappointed in you. You owe it to EVERYONE in Spokane struggling with mental illness and their families to rewrite this piece with your facts in place. It is a hard enough journey without you writing false pieces like this one. Apologize to the mental health community and redo this article, please.

Re: “Who Do You Trust?

Democrats fought to keep slavery.
Democrats got us into WWI.
Democrats got us into WWII.
Democrats got us involved in the Korean war.
Democrats got us in Vietnam and killed 53,000 Americans.
Democrats, including John Kerry and Hillary Clinton supported, encouraged and voted to support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

When the democrats kill American service, leave hostages to rot in Iran or leave our borders open to foreign invaders they like to blame republicans for their failures. The fact is that their policies are policies of failure. The democrats want to destroy America as badly as the people running Iran. Nothing on earth hates like the "religion of peace" or is as intolerant as the "party of tolerance".

Re: “The Trumpenstein Monster

I think trump has seen an opportunity in thus election, and is perfectly positioning himself to great advantage. Since he is self financing, he can stay in right up to the election, after most of the field has dropped out after their diners see the writing on the wall and cut their losses. If we end up at the convention with two potential winners, ans trump as #3 with just enough delegates locked up to keep either of the others from winning, he can demand anything he wants, to throw his votes to one side or the other.

Robert Herold trusts Ayatollah Khamenei more than Republicans. That really says something about Herold.

Re: “Spokane Style

Great article, including the coverage on Ken Brooks. Mr. Brooks' appreciation for the larger context of architecture - including his ideas on improving Spokane's relationship with the river is something few are aware of. Bill Youngs' excellent book "The Fair and the Falls" provides a great quote from Brooks, showing just how far ahead of his time he was: “Look, if you’re going to do something for the City of Spokane, reclaim that river. Get the pollution out of it; get it back to its original state if possible. And it should be the feature of our city.” Were he alive today, am sure Ken would be pleased at our City's progress - and would urge us to keep at it.

Re: “Barred from Help

Not enough money for psychiatrists in the DSHS system. It's impossible to get evaluations done on time or accept patients for admission if there are not enough doctors to see them.

Re: “Spokane Style

I'm a huge fan of Spokane, so please don't take this wrong. I just get so frustrated because it could be so much better. It could be the most awesome city in the Northwest. But there are crappy decisions that bring it down. Like those cheap planters in the opera house. It's beautiful building, but that cheap blue planter brings the whole place down to a meh level.

Re: “Idaho's helmet-free motorcyclists aren't safer, but are part of a growing trend

It is hard to imagine that a "writer" could / would publish something this stupid! 1) Both riders were drunk, 2) neither motorcycle had lights and they were riding at night, 3) both were racing at high speeds while drunk, 4) the helmets that "could" have stopped his head injury is speculative, 5) The CDC says that of the 4,502 MC deaths, 12% were not wearing helmets. That means that 88% of the dead WERE wearing helmets! 6) Many states have repealed their helmet laws because more and more studies are finding that helmet law states have MORE fatalities than non-helmet law states. Good grief, is there no end to the stupidity of people like this that obviously has never been on a motorcycle or to a common sense class? SMH
