Re: “Calling for Help

Chris Parker called 911 to ask for help, but instead he was given a jail cell, restraints, and a Tazor gun ! It is implied that he deserved to die at the hands of police officers because he owed child support, and had injested some meth. Why didn't these police officers take him immediately to hospital since he was also diabetic and his mind was mentally confused? Couldn't criminal charges wait until his health had stabalized and he had detoxed a little bit? Spokane has a meth problem, but why weren't these cops out there on streets in the community looking for meth and drug DEALERS inside of trying use Chris Parker in some way to get an easy charge so they wouldn't have to do an even bigger job as law enforcers? These cops are the cause of Chris Parkers death both directly and indirectly and it is a shame that they get paid to commit murder!

Re: “Train Tax?

If you can get on the internet to wank, "commonsense" then you can fact check. Oh but you didn't even try.

Coal dust is not good for you to breathe.
http://midwestenergynews.com/2013/02/20/research-finds-additional-harm-from-coal-dust-exposure/

Spokane is not the only community to consider additional restrictions on uncovered loads.


"Crude shipments have skyrocketed from 29,605 cars in 2010 to 493,126 in 2014"

http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-oil-train-explosions-20150313-story.html

It doesn't take a genius "commonsense" to realize that shipping of vastly increased quantities of flammables results in increased accidents, fireballs, spills, and damage.

Bakken crude is more volatile. It can and does go boom.


as an aside, "commonsense" the level of hate for anything related to government threatens us all when wing nuts decide to derail a train to serve their murderous aims.

I hope this never happens. This is another reason for safety and vigilance.


Spokane has way more to lose than any energy company if a fireball burns in the heart of downtown and contaminates our water


http://www.nytimes.com/topic/subject/oil-spills?inline=nyt-classifier

And finally, don't spread lies about respirators and by implicit reasoning, black lung and fibrosis.

Maybe you've never seen anyone struggling to breath with respiratory disease, but I have. It is called suffocating to death.

http://scienceblogs.com/thepumphandle/2011/06/03/why-us-coal-miners-are-still-d/

I'd call you stupid, CS, but your level of ignorance and vitriol requires continued and regular maintenance.

Sad that this is how you've decided to put your "commonsense" to use.

Thank you to everyone who serves to keep CDA natural. I swam in the lake today at Tubbs Hill and it was clean and clear. After visiting Island Park, I am very grateful for the beautiful water we have here.

Re: “Battle from Both Sides

Nancy needs to go home. She has served her time on Spokane City Council without any real distinction.

Mumm needs to finish her term or better yet resign her seat and return to private the sector, forever. She has disgraced herself and her city.

Maybe she can seek a position at a non profit making sure people are in compliance with her legislation dealing with cruelty to Spokane elephants.......

This leaves Josh. Let's hope he can do a good job as a county commissioner or he is out in 4 years.

Re: “Train Tax?

What a Bunch of Progressive Idiots . Next City Council elections can't come soon enough !

Oil Trains are no danger, speed limits through Spokane. Of all the nasty things transported by train, oil is pretty far down the list of worries.

Coal ??? Seriously how stupid are Stuckart and Co or do they actually believe the Environmental Activist drivel they regurgitate. NO where does coal leap from trains into peoples yards, Coal is inert, Coal is harmless to the Spokane river as a matter of fact tons and tons of it were purposely dumped in river to cap heavy metal sediments. Coal dust from trains is such a non issue it is ridiculous the outrageously stupid claims of Environmentalist. It is loaded and sprayed with dust inhibitors, even underground coal miners don't have to wear DUST Masks or respirators.... coal dust is so dangerous.....

Hopefully Spokane voters won't be duped by the morons behind this dumb initiative.

Hillary makes History ?

The way the Democrats ran here unopposed in the primary they could have nominated any women, possibly even one that isn't a crook and a Liar.....

Since they ( DWS DNC ) wouldn't let any serious Dem Primary candidates run against her it was pretty much a Joke Primary.

Re: “If We Voted Today...

The Left didn't seem so upset with Obama's man crush on Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, But Trump gets a pretty benign compliment from Putin and they go into a tithy with crazy absurd accusations.

The emails are pretty bad for the Democrats. Caught in a LIE, in desperation they try and deflect as usual.

Re: “WA attorney general fires back at states challenging federal transgender guidlines

Sorry to pop your bubble, but there have been several instances of males passing as trans using the women's rest room to take pictures or harass young girls and women. Ask Target how well their new policy is working.

Re: “A Broken World

A touching story, but lacking in any concrete ideas as to how to solve the problem. Yes, we need to hear the stories, but we need to move beyond platitudes such as "If you are doing what you can in this broken world to help make sure everyone is treated with basic human dignity and respect, I thank you." What do we do? Where are the ideas that might work?

Re: Blaming Russia - What does him Trump and Putin admiring each other mean?

Seriously are we supposed to be hackled up like a frightened porcupines eyeballing mother Russia like its 1985 and we're still in the Cold War? I'm not ready to go to war in another country. My friends death's are pretty hard to get over and considering the number of Marines I still know in combat units...I'm not sure I want them pulling a Spartan like hold out in the Fulda Gap...because Putin is supposed to be my enemy.

I'm not supposed to be upset about DNC email links. But I am supposed to be upset that Trump and Putin find each other admirable?

I don't know man, I just don't know anymore.

Re: “MIDTOWN, COEUR D'ALENE

I have lived in Midtown cda for 30 years. The appeal was then and is still everything I need in walking distance from my home.

Re: “MIDTOWN, COEUR D'ALENE

Midtown was called Midtown in the 1950s and the area was much smaller than the one described in this article.

Fourth Street was predominantly residential north of Wallace Avenue until Reid Avenue. North of Reid was a small business district with a laundromat, a funeral home, a doughnut shop, a furniture store, a couple of taverns, a drugstore, a hardware store, and a variety store (Midtown Variety at 4th & Boise). Midtown was on 4th Street between Reid and Boise Avenues.

In the 1960s, Safeway moved to a site just north of Midtown and became part of it. Then Midtown Variety moved to 4th & Spokane, a block north of Albertson's (Goodwill now) and people began to refer to the area of Modern Drug and Albertson's on Harrison as being part of Midtown, too.

I'm sure the term Midtown pre-dates the 1950s to whenever the stores started popping up there. ( In the I grew up on Foster Avenue (a block south of Reid), 2 houses east of 4th Street, in the '50s & '60s.)
