Re: “No Peaceful Easy Feeling

Wow. Really went out on journalistic limb there, didn't you? I feel the same way about 99% of Harley owners these days. It used to be about blah, blah, blah. But now any idiot with a credit can go buy "cool" and blah, blah, blah. Same with the "dangerous" bands you mentioned. Sure they used to be about blah, blah, blah. Now? There pretty much subjects for hot topic t-shirts in an effort to make their purchasers seem some how in touch with a generation of music that's barely a half a generation newer than the band which you rail against. It's not like any of those bands had any integrity either. And the Lebowski reference? Talk about low hanging fruit. Then again no one cares if you go around hating a band the nobody's ever heard of in print. Don't like it? Don't listen. Still feel like you have to regurgitate a contrived opinion? Do it in the editorial section. Or the comments section, like I did. D. Lee

Re: “Put Kids First

Quality child care is important in many ways, there is TONS of research to back up this very fact. If we want kids to graduate high school, show lower instances of challenging behaviors, have lower arrest rates, fewer drug problems, spend fewer dollars on special education, and break the cycle of poverty- spending money in early learning is where it is at. The environments and interactions children have from birth-5 years old shapes the foundation of the person they will become for the rest of their life. Access to quality child care is what our country needs and will benefit from in so many different ways. Child care is a business, and by supporting early learning, you are also supporting the economy. Funding the Early Start Act is what we need!

Re: “Volume is Back!

Perhaps Volume can lease a portion of land like restoring the Natatorium Park with series of stages for people to see it all in one locale.

Re: “Teacher Skip Day

My understanding is that CVSD did not have a quorum to vote for or against the walkout, so to state that "they declined to join the strike" may imply something not entirely accurate?

Re: “Put Kids First

Once upon a time in a land not so far away, Parents were forced to choose cooperative daycare where one or both Parents gave one day per week to jointly care for their children and those of other co-op members. City, State, and Federal subsidies could then be stretched to provide meals, facilities, and a qualified early education specialist to assist the co-op. We need to focus on sustainability , family bonds and providing economic opportunity to families...welfare alone does nothing to break the cycles of poverty.

Re: “Hierarchy of Needs

I feel like I'm never going to get a handle on my emotions or health as long as I live here due to the constant exposure of second-hand meth like chemicals pouring directly into my kitchen from a vent coming from my neighbors bathroom and kitchen. I've been disabled my entire life and have always went out of my way to NOT consume any chemicals, caffeine, coffee, pop, pills, food dyes, tea, alcohol, fake food, perfumes, spices, acidic foods, potassium, metals, tattoos, tuna, hot temperatures, tap water, mold, antibiotics, .... and more

I've been through very painful invasive medical procedures without any anesthetics or pain relievers because of my physical disability causes a difficult and serious medical condition.

So it angers me MUCH when anyone labels ALL homeless disabled people as druggies or mental illness. The people who have a habit of using chemicals have built up an immunity and I have not. I am extremely sensitive to them. They cause me great harm. One tiny drop of caffeine to me is like 30 cups to the average coffee drinker. I cannot handle any uppers or such.

I think it should be illegal to build apartments where 25% of the air pouring into my room is recycled from my neighbors room. But since they have built the place, it should be law that landlords be required to inform a potential renter of this important risk.

If one person is deathly allergic to peanuts and their neighbor spews peanut dust into the vent air system, it could cause death.

Re: “Is it fair for teachers to attack the legislators' 11.2 percent salary increase?

My daughter has a Masters Degree in Education, with endorsements in mathematics and music. As a new teacher (middle school mathematics), she makes $42K per year -- in Redmond. Same as what teachers make in Eastern Washington. She works longer hours than you can imagine...lesson planning, responding to "helicopter" parents, and meeting the needs of her students. Something is very wrong with this picture. If we want quality education for our kids, then why are we paying teachers such low wages? If she could do it all over again, she would have studied computer science, and made $100K and worked fewer hours. Think about it....

Re: “Spokane sheriff: police militarization a "myth"

Hopefully in his presentation Sheriff Knezovich will provide supporting evidence for his assertion that, "With the results of actions taken by city of Baltimore, actions consistent with the UC Berkeley suggestions, which led to the burning of several buildings and the national guard being called out"; I suspect it was extracted hot and steaming from his posterior.

Sheriff Knezovich also strangely commits a rhetorical unforced error when he uses the term "war" in the context of our ongoing national dialog on police practices, and then acknowledges it as a misuse of the term. His entire response strikes a note of condescension and contempt. I hope Sheriff Knezovich's future interactions with the public are conducted more professionally.

Re: “Put Kids First

I am the owner/director of a child care center in Spokane Valley. We have been involved with Early Achievers for several years. It has made a huge impact on our center, the families that we provide care too, and to our childcare staff. Early Achievers represents the first real improvement to the childcare system in our state. It represents education for providers about quality learning environments and the importance of high quality interactions between children and teachers. It represents support to families so that they can do the best possible job that they can as parents. It represents financial support for childcare providers to improve facilities and to get closer to paying employees a living wage.

I have heard just about every legislator that I have talked with this year say that early learning is the best dollar spent in our state. I am really hoping that they truly understand the importance of the decision they have in front of them and fully fund the Early Start Act.

Re: “Put Kids First

I have worked in the Early Learning field for the past 15 years. Eight years I worked @ the Lake Washington Technical College in Kirkland Wa. Most of the children were the sons and daughters of single mothers, a few single fathers, who were working toward AA or technical degrees. These parents were also working at least part time and many worked full time jobs. They were struggling to provide for their children and improve themselves and the future for their families. The example these parents were setting for their children was not one of underachievement, laziness or any of the stereotypical behaviors listed in the previous comments. I don't doubt that there is abuse of social welfare programs, any more than I doubt that there is abuse of tax loopholes. However in either case the children of the perpetrators are not to blame. The philosophy behind Early Learning is not a process of dumbing down or lowering expectations; but rather what can we as adults do to bring out the highest potential of every child
to become a happy human being capable of contributing to society. Please visit a high quality Early Learning Center and find out for yourself what great work these dedicated professionals do everyday for the future. I believe you will be impressed.

Re: “Put Kids First

Good message Mariah. We need to underscore the ask, however, no matter the polital flavor of one's state representatives. Politicians act because constituents act. I'm contacting mine today.

Re: “Don Draper isn't Mad Men's main character any more. And that's a good thing

I was trying to find something I didn't get in the show and I saw this and it represents every person that gums up media about the show with objectively factitious and facetious articles and posts. I mean facetious very literally, it's almost funny to think people who have watched the show in its entirety think "man, don draper a shithead". I'm not surprised I'm the only person to comment on this. I'm sure everyone who accidentally reads the headline laughs or sits down and jacks off to their penis envy for a character in a story they can't understand or are too dense to try to appreciate it for things a goat could enjoy.
