Re: “Where to get your vinyl for Record Store Day 2015

I can't take the comment down and realized right after I posted it I misinterpreted the words on the page. Sorry everyone.

Re: “Where to get your vinyl for Record Store Day 2015

They were simply saying that business isn't "participating" in the events by having a sidewalk sale or whatever... Not saying don't go there

Re: “Where to get your vinyl for Record Store Day 2015

I don't understand why you would say don't visit a store because it's new? Groove Merchants is a collaboration of many different collectors and they buy used and new records on a weekly basis. I don't care if a record store is open a day, a week, or many years support vinyl.

No disrespect to the other stores mentioned they have been open for many years and are great places to get what you need or special ordered but so is Groove Merchant.

New business need are help not a ooooo pass on them cause they have not been open long enough.

Sorry for speaking my mind but it's how I feel towards this subject.

Enjoy tomorrow everyone

Re: “Spokane Mayor Condon draws first reelection challenger

She'll have the support of a coalition comprised of Wobblies, Luddites and Occupiers. I can hardly wait.

Re: “CAT FRIDAY WEDNESDAY: SHS hosts a baby shower Friday for the tiniest spring arrivals — kittens!

Please help! On April 15, 2015 my kitty who I raised since he was 2 weeks old died in my arms from liver cancer. It's heart breaking but he was in a lot of pain and he's in a better place now. The only way I can think to cope with my sadness is find my kitty reincarnated and in a better body. If anyone knows of a male kitten born on April 15, 2015 please please please help me out. Thank you.

Re: “What to expect from Walt Worthy's new Convention Center Hotel

The building is ugly. It looks more like a prison than a nice hotel. I agree that they should have kept the darker colored facade. The gray/ white just makes it look incomplete, or like it belongs in an industrial setting. Concrete is not attractive. Ugh!

Re: “What it's like to interview nuns in a cloistered monastery

I've written to these Carmelites several times asking for prayers, and always received back handwritten responses that are characterized by a what I can only call wisdom. Deep, deep wisdom that gets right to the heart of the matter, and to my own heart. They’ve given me advice and encouragement that is filled with love. And not a meaningless, cheerleader-y, feel-good-about-yourself love, but a steady regard for me as a fellow human being who is of great worth because God created and redeemed me. Nowadays we often feel like love must include the faults of the other, as if in order to love another with all their faults we must somehow love the faults as well. But these Carmelites instead expressed a loving desire that I overcome my faults. Some of the things they told me were somewhat stern — but with that gentle sternness that comes from love. And it was very much needed.

I consider myself blessed to have had these nuns “in my corner” during some of the most difficult times in my life, even though I’ve never met them and don’t even know their names (they sign their letters simply, “The Carmelites”).

Re: “Washington Policy Center anything but non-partisan on Spokane trolley line

Classic example of Alinsky's rules for radicals, whether intentional or coincidental. Attacking individuals or institutions rather than addressing their arguments. Why does it matter who your opponent is or who funds them if they're right on the issues? It matters because a personal attack can be used to undermine the opponent's credibility with people who are susceptible to demagoguery and flawed logic.

Re: “Washington Policy Center anything but non-partisan on Spokane trolley line

I'm grateful for this piece. I don't agree ideologically with the WPC but believe in robust discussion from all angles. WPC, though, simply doesn't put up a fair fight when they claim to not be advocating a certain position (which they always are), not have a dog in the fight (which they always do) and say they are without ideology (which they clearly are not). Our community deserves truthful disclosure from an organization that has so much influence and weighs in on so many important issues that affect our citizens. Why run from it WPC? Just say you're a conservative/right wing group backed by people who share your values who is conveying positions on issues in our community. In fact, put it in your name: WA Conservative Policy Center. Wear what you are and do proudly. To try to influence people without informing them you have a bias is weak, lame and often damaging.

Re: “Washington Policy Center anything but non-partisan on Spokane trolley line

Mark, this piece is not about the trolley, it is about the Washington Policy Foundation--and how that right-wing think tank misrepresents itself. It seems pretty clear to me.

Re: “Washington Policy Center anything but non-partisan on Spokane trolley line

^Mark, this article is a rebuttal to an attacking article written by The Washington Policy Center about his initial article: http://www.inlander.com/spokane/the-ties-t… .

The electric trolly is a very tiny portion of the levy and that is why many are not giving it much thought. It requires Spokane Citizens to come up with 12 Million dollars(The total costs of the trolly is 80 million but it is mostly paid for by a federal grant) which is a little more then 10% of what the new tax will provide. I personally don't completely support the trolly but because it is rolled into this whole ballot measure, I will be supporting. We need to try something new. I have been wishing for a lightrail system for 20 years and I don't think the politicians in Spokane are ever going to get together to actually make it happen. I am curious if we will ever actually get a north south freeway, that has been over 60 years in the making. Some progress is good, so the trolly could make a difference.

One great thing which is also a curse of Spokane is we feel and act like we are a little town but the reality is that we are a rapidly growing city. I love the smaller town feel but we NEED to start preparing for big city issues. The transportation issues between the north side and south side of Spokane are going to really hurt in the next few decades as the city grows. Unless we magically start driving flying cars, we need a way to make transportation work better in our little town.

Re: “Washington Policy Center anything but non-partisan on Spokane trolley line

Is this a newspaper article or just an opinion piece? I came into it with no context and was immediately confused as to where the author stands. I came out of it seeing it as a one-sided public argument.

Instead of going after a group you don't like you should try to convince your readers why something like an electric trolley would be good for citizens. That's called taking the high road, or not stooping get to their level, or being a good reporter. Take your pick.

Articles like this make it hard for me to take the Inlander as a credible source of news. I've seen too many and I'm tired of it.

Re: “Cop charged with murder in South Carolina raises questions about body cameras

Allow me to translate Sheriff Kenzovich's statements in this article:

The Sheriff is smart enough to know that if HB 1917 passes the restrictions on public disclosure would make it nearly impossible for someone to force public disclosure including the media...so he WOULD NOT have to worry about all the costs associated with indexing, flagging, storage and retrieval, etc. On the other hand if it doesn't pass he knows that the costs would be extensive and would cut the heck out of his budget...so he ain't going to use body cameras like most of the rest of the law enforcement agencies in the State unless HB 1917 passes, and he will let the City PD be the folks who spend all the money on PRRs and litigation, until a decent law is passed.

Good plan Sheriff....let Straub screw it up and at least save us taxpayers some money at the county level!

Re: “Cop charged with murder in South Carolina raises questions about body cameras

HB 1917 is still somewhat alive...but HB 1910 is dead.

The most likely outcome...at this point... for HB 1917 is the "Task Force Only" amendment which puts a body worn camera law down the road for a long time.

If only the Task Force amendment passes it means law enforcement agencies using pilot body camera programs will have to follow the AG's opinion regarding public disclosure of the audio/video...which won't make the media or the public very happy.

Frank Straub and Jon Snyder are more than willing to risk our money on costly litigation to try and make themselves look good because they bought the cameras and all the data storage against advice from people that knew the ramifications of purchasing prior to a law being enacted. HB 1917 is a law enforcement backed bill that not only severely restricts public access to the audio/video but also has a never before in Washington "Wiretap" section.


I hope the public and the media don't get fooled again with another dog and pony show!
