Re: “Off to Camp

Who said anything about promoting? I didn't say that, nor am I oblivious to the supposed goal of the article. One of the co-organizers was referenced and given a voice, yet the main person driving the idea behind this whole idea wasn't -- and I find this more important than making sure to name-drop other individuals mentioned in this article.

Re: “Off to Camp

This was one of the coolest things I've done in years! The collective campout pushed my mind and creativity to the max. I learned so many new things that will assist me in my daily and my money on the side non-profit organizations. Thanks to all who helped put this on. I can not wait for next year.

Re: “Small Towns 2015: Of Mountains and Mines

The ores and minerals, the bars, the hill, the folks. Nice article. Kellogg is one of a kind.

Re: “Off to Camp

John Mujica, along with a committee of over a dozen people worked together for months to put this event together. But, the purpose of the article was to promote the camp, not the people who put the camp together. I think Chey did an excellent job accurately portraying the purpose and outcome of Collective Campout.

Re: “Off to Camp

Where's the love for John Mujica? He was pretty damn instrumental for this event...

Re: “Fading Glory

I vote for the original, too. The only change I would suggest is to replace the navy blue with purple. The others are too complex, and the latest appropriates the self-description of the Spokane Tribe, which is disrespectful of their culture. It's good that it has been hidden away.

I'm Sure St Maries would be happy to have you leave Lola Loino if you all ready have not.

Re: “Fading Glory

In order to bring attention to the flags, perhaps the Inlander could run a cover with Sheriff Knezovich standing on them.

Re: “Fading Glory

I vote to restore the original flag! A far, far better design than any of the more recent versions. A sun, and what might have even been an intentional abstraction of the river and the lower falls (white stripe and fan) Lilac color too.

Re: “Small Towns 2015: Small Town, Big Hearts

What an idealized piece of work. It is a horrible small town. There is no education, limited access to jobs and rampant drug problems. What could be a charming small town is instead a cesspool of uncontrolled power and abuse with no outside influence to moderate it.

Re: “Small Towns 2015: Small Town, Big Hearts

I am happy to have called North Idaho home for over 40 years. Moved back to Missouri to care for Elderly Mother. My duties are now finished here in Missouri. Will be looking to make my journey back Home. I do miss all the friends and families that allowed me to be a part of their lives there in St. Marie's, Emida, Plummer, Princeton, and Coeur d'Alene. I worked in the area and in Spokane and have the Cda Tribe . St. Marie's by far has the Best Fireworks of any I have watched. Even better than in Texas or any other big show I have witnessed. The program I remember most is the Pirate show done while I the park. I remember Ed a fellow employee of Safeway being part of the fireworks family in town. A Big a Thanks to All. Jack Buell was Always around to give me advice when I ask him.

Re: “Parallel Parking

This is the stupidest idea in recent memory. Can you imagine the garbage, graffiti and crud that will accumulate in a hobo hotel near the sidewalk? Seriously, if you have so much time in the day that you need a "mini-park' to sit and get baked, maybe you should try "going to work"?

The example pictured has high sides to block the view of on-coming traffic and thus render the two parking spaces in either side all but useless. No trash cans or recycle bins for the "park visitors" to throw their trash and a random wheelchair shoved into the wall, as if to imply the handicapped need to be put in a corner and forgotten.

The chairs and umbrellas further block visibility for walkers and drivers making it a death trap of urban stupidity, thus perfect for socialists. How about instead of a non-profit group called "YES" we start with a for-profit group called SSDSWC or "STOP SITTING IN THE DAMNED SIDEWALKS AND GO TO WORK FOR A CHANGE".

Re: “For Your Consideration

Total Wine & More in the Valley had a good quantity of the Not Your Father's Root Beer last week, as did the Safeway near Sprague and Evergreen.

Re: “Small Towns 2015: More Than a Speed Trap

There are also other fun locally owned places to stop like the Top Notch cafe (amazing burgers) and Events on Main (soup, salad, sandwich, and coffee shop.) We know you will really enjoy the stops you make in Colfax... As long as it's not the kind that sends you of with a ticket ;)

There's the Al Winter windmill from the historical museum in the background! Odessa is where my husband Larry grew up. Great place!

Re: “The Lost Chapter

This is a great story and a wonderful surprise! :D Maybe a lot of people have forgotten "The Spokane Story" exhibit, but I haven't. I grew up in Spokane. I and my family so very much loved Expo '74 and the coming of Riverfront Park afterward. To me those are among my cherished memories of Spokane. I and my parents visited the Spokane Story exhibit several times and dearly loved it! We were very sad that it closed and always did wonder what happened to it. It is amazing to hear that so much of it still exists! I thought it had probably been dismantled and destroyed long, long ago. One of the things I remember about the Spokane story was the large Tesla Coil demonstration that was held on the stage set for awhile towards the end of the exhibits run there. I wonder whatever happened to that coil. It would be cool if it were still around somewhere. It would be amazing if the Spokane story could be resurrected somehow, and be made not just artistically feasible but logistically so now.

Re: “Small Towns 2015: A Place for All Seasons

"the log cabin's stone-and-brick chimney and squared timber walls could tell volumes about 147 years spent watching the land and people around it evolve from a wild, untouched wilderness to today's tame town." What a load of crap!!!! Chewelah was never a wild, untouched wilderness. It was the home of the Chewelah band of Kalispel Indians, was where they had their winter camp, and was on the Flowery Trail trade route from Kettle Falls to the Pend Oreille River. If anything that cabin would have seen the constant traffic from sturgeon nosed canoes and packhorses trading salmon and camas back and forth across the pass.

But I can't wait to check out the new brewery!
