Re: “Unseen Enforcement

The "Freedom Restoration Project" might be defunct but the director (that's me) is as busy on this issue as ever. See here a video on how easy it is to make your own impersonator car:

And look here to see info on a court case regarding this issue. This case is getting underway in Superior Court in November and the legalities are going to be decided in a way that police can no longer misread.

We're expecting that the impending court decision on the issue will help turn up the heat on the Legislature to get around to fixing this problem and hopefully creating a meaningful enforcement provision for marking requirements as well. The current enforcement provision requiring the offending departments to spank themselves isn't working for some reason.

Re: “Truth Scarier than Fiction

So, North Dakotan boom towns are a combination of Gangs of New York and Robocop, with explosive lightning? And they're going to cause two decades of growth and far less unemployment, and money? Okay, I'm willing to risk it. Likely many Dakotans are also willing to risk it, but feel free to explain to them how you know better Ms. Editorial Writer. By the way, that at the end there was the worst tagline ever. Try a classic: "WHO WILL SURVIVE...AND WHAT WILL BE LEFT OF THEM?"

Father's Day Plaza since Spokane is the original home of Father's Day.

Re: “Inferences Left Hanging

Who Knows Rich Cowan?? Certainly we don't from your article.... But you sure seem to dislike Mr Baumgartner with a passion. Partisan Politics to a fault.....Just wondering what your resume would be like Professor Herold..Do Not see many shining Marks on your Rate My Professors Page at Gonzaga... probably your detractors are all Republican.

Re: “Three possible names for that still-unnamed plaza near City Hall

The Gathering Place seems to me to be the best choice since that is really what it is...

Re: “Three possible names for that still-unnamed plaza near City Hall

'The Gathering Place' with the Salish name underneath gets my vote. Given the proximity to the river and rich history of this location as the fishing grounds for many regional Native Americans. It makes sense. Additionally, King Cole has a bridge in Riverfront Park named after him.

Re: “The Real Me

Michael. Care to comment? I'd say you have a thin skin to go along with an outsized ego. Purely an observation. Based on the record.

Re: “The Real Me

Not gracious Michael. You got some well-deserved criticism. You didn't address any of it. You've taken far too much credit for the work of others, dressed up your resume to a fare-thee-well and are behaving like the GOP heir apparent. Perhaps a tad of humility is in order.

Re: “Prisoners of War

being a neighbor of the Harveys in Stevens County, I lost my home and almost my life over our work providing cannabis therapy to the sick and dying in Eastern Washington because 50 miles from the border is now under FEDERAL CONRTOL and no citizen has any rights within those areas. This is why the DEA is playing such a hard ball game against the good citizens of Washington who happen to love living in the woods and being near nature and choose to grow the " devils cabbage".
The Harveys and Gregs are no different than any other responsible cannabis collective, and they are good neighbors and members of their communities in Kettle Falls and Onion Creek. The reality of the gun charges is simply overwhelming and concrete as far as the Federal Government is concerned.. for when we were raided at our home, the only thing they were looking for was ammunition or any type of firearm.... in fact they kept asking over and over again but knowing the position of our government on firearms we have never allowed them or owned them.
This difficult situation for the Kettle Falls Five will be repeated again and again UNTIL we the good people of America come forward and demand an end to cannabis prohibition and the draconian laws that currently exist that were designed to be used against the minority communities. We have limited public resources, and the lies that allowed generations of persecution of cannabis users and providers to be sent to prison and their lives ruined are no longer being allowed to stand. Only you and I, the voters of this nation can change this law... WE THE PEOPLE must demand our elected officials move beyond the reefer madness craze over the devils cabbage and stop the persecution of the cannabis community. Cannabis use is neither a sin or vice, and to allow these laws to still cause so much pain and suffering is simply wrong and needs to be changed.
How sad for these good people and such a waste of public resources....
Let us keep them in our prayers in this difficult time.

Re: “Epic Fail on Ebola

Predictable commentary that polticizes the issue, and inaccurately at that. The Ebola czar appointed by President Obama is a political hack with no medical training and no background in public health. Neither this article nor the Administration addresses the risk of an outbreak in a reasoned, scientific way.

Re: “Truth Scarier than Fiction

Christianity teaches that people can overcome their faults and shortcomings through their faith. This article recognizes that people have faults and shortcomings but offers no hope or solutions, only blame and criticism. Whatever philosophy or world view it expresses is useless and empty.

Herold's column was autobiographical: Bitter, disingenuous and obsessed with old--40 year old--grudges.

Re: “A "Pro-Woman" Candidate?

Just like every other politically biased story we can read/watch, the entire story is not reported. What else was attached to these bills that would cause someone to vote against the measure? At least list the bill number so we can look them up and make a truly informed decision!

Re: “The New Normal

This is just more of a dumbed down controlled society, how many times does a individual have to reinvent
themselves to find work before the peter principle is reached, by long range labor estimates by 2040
the U.S. unemployment rate will be at least 40%, and this will be to a great extent done by the magical thinking
of technology thanks a lot you tech nerds for screwing up humanity !
