Re: “Bridging the Gap

This article paints a picture very unlike what my experience as a West Central resident has been. Sure I bought a vacant eyesore & have been rehabbing since day 1, I connected some neighbors & we changed some rental habits of a slumlord or two down the block, but location, location, location plus beautiful old homes full of character waiting for those of us with tools & skills were my main reasons to buy here. I love this neighborhood. It is diverse on every level and that is what I craved over the more singular demographic neighborhoods that I was steered into when looking to purchase a home in Spokane. If you want to help out a neighborhood that has been overlooked by the city with the exception of the weeks before Bloomsday comes through maybe you need to stop depicting it as a broke down palace such as the illustration on this weeks' cover does. I am proud to call West Central my home.

Re: “Bridging the Gap

I see this to be a terribly inaccurate report on the "impoverished" side of west central. Our homes do not reflect the description you have written for the most part and the people here put a lot of work into where they live. Also, the people I've met from Kendall yards have been very kind, and I number them as friends. My experiences living here my entire life is not even close to what this article has to say. I walk through Kendall yards all the time with my pit bull and get smiles from people in their porches, and people walking by me, I've had perhaps one encounter that I felt a Kendall yards person was stiffing me.
