Re: “On Bigfoot's Trail

Having grown up in The Big Thicket of SE Texas and spending ALL my spare time as an expert woodsman... I find the most astounding part of the entire Big Foot Phenomenon is the fact that these ,"Experts" who are on the TV shows and go out into the night, are the biggest bunch of wussies I've ever seen. They honestly expect a wild elusive creature to bless them with it's presence as they cower in FEAR behind the simplest of noises and as soon as a Big Footed Thrush Bird snaps a twig... HEAR THAT??? IT'S BIGFOOT!!!! I just KNOW it is... Hahahahaha... Absurdity in it's most theatrical form. If they ever DID see one, they would $&!# and fall right back in it and then run away in fear!

My grandfather told me stories of how the loggers of the 1900 - 1920s, building the railroad trams thru the virgin forests of Texas and the Louisiana border in order to move the logs out, would watch a tall hairy creature stand at a distance, and watch the camp every evening at dinner time as the food was cooking. It would stand with it's arms crossed and watch, curiously, but would run away if the normal routine of the camp was altered to the point of focusing on it or if it was even slightly approached... Some wanted to shoot it as proof, but the majority of men knew what it was and always over ruled... If not for THAT story, from my own grand father.... I would be a scoffer too! But 1900 - 1920 was 100 years ago, and we have destroyed MILLIONS of acres of our forestland and to exist in what we have left for OURSELVES is as rare as seeing an alien from outer space!!!! Whup!!! Chewybacca LIVES!!!

Two cheers for creating spaces where you're likely to find another with a common goal.

Re: “Silent Night on the Western Front

The show is amazing. My wife, daughter, her friend and myself had the pleasure of seeing it the day after Thanksgiving. It's no mystery why they shows are sold out -- the performances by all eleven ensemble members is spot on. It's emotionally moving, and thought provoking.
I would love to see it again at The Bing, but I'm not sure I could handle the intensity of it again. Next year, yes. By then I will be ready again. It's that powerful.
If you haven't seen it -- this Christmas Eve is the 100th anniversary to the DAY that the truce started and the story in the show takes place. Set your plans aside and go.

Re: “Swipe right for love

Most dating sites and apps I have found lack one important thing. You can't really get to know someone's personality through just a picture, then waste your time meeting them, just to find out they don't look like their picture, or their personality isn't really what you like.
Look at the site 2connects.com, because they let you also post videos, no automatic renewals and they do background checks on all that join.
No matter where you join, I will suggest researching which sites have the most complaints. I found the major sites seem to be the worst one's. Good luck and I hope this is helpful.

Re: “Captain Planet

I'm a Spokane Chiefs Fan and we love him. All my kids have had thier pic taken with him and posted them on FB. One of my daughters even recognized him at Silverwood and asked if he was Recyle Man..... Nice guy in or out of character!

Re: “Captain Planet

Lots of folks trying to make their world a better place one bottle at a time, but not by recycling. Sing together now : "I'm shippin' up to Boston ... ."

Re: “Captain Planet

I have never seen him running up and down the stands looking for recyclables. All he does is play on the ice during intermission. He was putting on a show for the Inlander story. And Nancy is right, no one likes him. Sorry but it's true.

Re: “Captain Planet

Wow negative Nancy. Mascots are part of the fun and Recycle Man is fun. It's very clear from watching him that he works hard to perfect stunts and dances in that costume (which can not be easy). I'm pretty sure he's use to both negative and positive responses but I have seen kids at both the ballpark and the arena dress up like him at games so you get off your high horse. At least he's making a difference.

Re: “Captain Planet

Re: “Captain Planet

It's to bad nobody realizes that as far as the Spokane Chiefs fans go nobody can stand him. He is often booed when he is announced and at the very least you sure won't hear anyone clapping. As far as him saying that he doesn't compete with the other mascots I don't know what he does at the Indians games with Otto but it's obvious he competes with Boomer for the fans attention. If he absolutely has to be there I really wish he wouldn't be so public, he can walk around collecting trash or whatever but he needs to stay off the ice and out of the way.

Re: “More than Hair

Great example of the fine young men Coach Baldwin recruits to our community. One of the leaders who recruits fellow players to the Special Olympics Polar Plunge held annually at Liberty Lake.

Re: “About a Boat

Wonderful and touching chronology. I, too, own a 1971 Jolly Roger, and would love to put together a comprehensive design history. I think this might be a good starting point for that. Is there a way I could contact you, for a little guidance?

Re: “Challengers to the Throne

Are you serious? There is no team in the WCC that can beat Gonzaga this year.

Re: “Modern Times

This play was a part of the schedule from the initial announcement - HOUND was cut and this play was scheduled right in this time slot.

Re: “Idiot Detector

The basic premise of Black's humor is that he and his fans are smarter than people who disagree with them. That's not clever, it's tiresome and cliche. Check out Jerrod Carmichael if you appreciate subversive humor. And he's actually funny.

Re: “Swapping Stories

Maybe these folks should have their trysts on a stage. That way they can claim they're martyrs to their art and that their critics are philistines. There are plenty of people who have that attitude towards Spokanites and would agree.

Re: “My Confession

I don't see any slander or intent to hurt her family, but the family may perceive this behavior as harmful. She is opening her mind to the possibilty of another mindset, one which is curious, accepting, and questioning. A mindset that doesn't condemn you for a sin committed 4000 or so years ago, which requires believing that the only way to be spared from hell is to acknowledge that Jesus will save you from this sin you never committed. Maybe you never were born with this sin. Babies all over the world live and die without exposure to Christianity, and I cannot believe they are all burning in hell for eternity.
