Phil Tyler is a level headed, well educated, man that I grew up with...i think the knowledge that he brings to the table can be well received. Spokane has treated me horrible, but as I turn 50, I have no bad feelings. I also have 2 sons growing up in Spokane, and I would like to see them have a fair shake, unlike me...he would be a very positive influence on how Spokane sees people of color.

Re: “Too Smart for School

Keep at it honey, you will achieve your dreams. It is frustrating, I am sure although there are worse things than being too smart for public shool. You may have to go to a private school for the gifted. Keep schooling yourselfC and educate yourself in the things that interest you. I love books too. You will most likely find when you finally get inrolled in college that you already know most of the content anyway. I still learned a lot in group discussions with other students and learned to work as part of a team in a group. College is way different than K-12. Some of the content in some of the classes can be shocking. The only one that I can think of that I took that would not be appropriate for you would be an Ethics class called Art and Censorship. It was a great class, but was shocking for a 50-year-old, so I can see how they may have a couple legitimate concerns with a 12-year-old on campus. Still, I feel that they could accommodate you if they tried hard enough.

Re: “Cause For Alarm

93rdcurrent Unless you provide additional information as to where you live, how does one determine whether this is hearsay or not. The same can be said of the Thomas article. There's lot's of innuendo, and assertions that things are a result of spraying- where is the documented proof?

Re: “Cause For Alarm

It should also be noted that they are not spraying a mountain area or region once in "80 years" but rather spraying many different locations on a mountain every year. There is no break between spraying a region in any year period, at least not around us.

"hostile work environment, disparate treatment and discrimination" all while being promoted to Lt? Come on, man.

Ugh...perfect fit for the perpetually aggrieved.

Will PHIL TYLER be able to heal the deep, deep wound inflicted by liar Rachel Dolezal?

Can he rebuild the burned bridges?

Re: “Too Smart for School

Ironic that narrow minded bureaucrats hinder brilliant students. I guess nurturing isn't in the bag of tricks.

Re: “Too Smart for School

Notice you don't see SFCC saying "We'd love to help you out, let's see how we can make this work". nope. They are wedded to NO just like so many other tiny minds in tiny boxes.

Re: “Cause For Alarm

"If herbicides are used at all, they are used only once in a forest cycle, which is approximately 80 years," says Inland Empire paper like that makes it alright for the folks poisoned in year 80.

Re: “'Bigger To-Do List'

The worst POTUS since Jimmy Carter stumping for the worst governor in WA history....

What I thought was telling was when Barry attempted to go off script and say something spontaneous about Jay; he fumbled and stumbled for words like a freshman boy asking a prom queen for a first date.....Jay smiled. Mostly because he could not think of anything to say. (Too much football without his helmet they say.....)

Both are such empty suits.....together, on stage; not even a the whisper of a shadow of their carefully crafted public personas.

Let's hope America wises up this November and votes these posers and their ilk out once and for all

Re: “Masters of Eminent Domain

Ron, you go. Tired of seeing constituents bullied by a government "of the people, for the people, and by the people" pushing the people that really own the purse strings around in the name of public good. MLK way? Who cares. They screwed that entire road up hoping to get funding from the feds because of "the MLK" name and got egg on their face and now they are backpedaling. That entire road has been messed around in the name of Washington State University and the nursing college there. Heck, they even took one of the historic underground entrances to the worlds fair and turned it into a basement for a private project. Hang in there Ron Brown. Parking lots seem to be a big deal for the city, why would they want to destroy one to put in a road. Don't you pave paradise to put up a parking lot? Finally, great job Mr Fagan for getting off the chair and decidedly checking it out in the flesh. More of the officials voted for need to rule from fact as opposed to from their chair and reports created by special interest groups. See the reality in the program! Someday I am going to start a campaign to rename Spokane Valley to Reality. That way, when people ask me where I live, I can say, not in Spokane. I live in Reality.

Re: “The Last Stand

I love that we have an IMAX in this town – and I mean a real IMAX, not the lie-MAX they are branding in theaters now. And I hope no one tries to convert to 3-D – that truly is a gimmick that hasn't paid off yet. But the digital conversion could keep the IMAX going for another 10-15 years. Now, maybe another location in the park is better, next-door to designated parking, for example. But I absolutely do not get the impulse to trash things. Things from the past only get better with age, even if just for nostalgia factor. And an IMAX for kids can show profound images in profound ways. All cinemas are trying to figure out what is the future – but an IMAX is more likely to succeed to than a multiplex.

Re: “Opening New Doors

Excellent article. With the onset of an increasingly interconnected world, and wherein connection becomes increasingly accessible to people who previously were without it, this is an exciting time for education. It is encouraging to see the various programs at all of Spokane's universities, colleges and English language schools bringing diversity and resources to our community. While one can examine any system of education through various critical lenses, we must appreciate the annual contribution of tens of billions dollars (NAFSA) that international students bring to the US economy; we must applaud the teachers who empower learners by facilitating opportunities to learn another language and culture; and we should recognize the value of the diversity that these students, schools and programs offer us and how that enriches our community for all people.

Re: “Our Republic

This is so heartbreaking my condolences to both families. It's a parents worst nightmare. My brother Ron Webster died with a few other young men in 2003 back then it was meth?.Sence then my family many members have been affected by this epidemic. With this struggle trying to get these young people off is difficult the official's do not make it easy it's a proven fact that drug court is much better less re a fender meaning if convicted of heroin first time you get treatment you finish you are cleared but in this town they refuse they push jail time and felony Which follows these young kids hard for them to get jobs a place to live. A much harder for them to stay clean and put everything behind them. After my son's case the prosecutor who was pushing for drug court commits suicide? In this small town up away it's a booming drug infected place but you all really need to evaluate your officials. How much money does the county get for each felony? By the way when my brother died and his friends all died with in three months. Really?

Re: “Coming to Terms

Follow the trail around forensic analyst Jarrod Carter. There is a relationship somehow between how he got it "wrong" in the first place and how he got it "right" in the second place.
Unfortunately for Jarrod, even if there isn't a smoking gun anywhere in the relationship between the two analyses, he has proven that, at the very least, he is incompetent. If he's on our public payroll, I want him removed from it.

Re: “Our Republic

No community in America is safe from meth, heroin, crack cocaine and prescription opioids. Our country is sick, our priorities are crazy. I wish I had an answer.

Re: “Our Republic

Re: “Opening New Doors

All workers have a potential amazing skill set to add to the community. I am astonished a school is allowed to insinuate burger flippers are less than any other hardworking person. Just shameful. Now i believe the comment about offering the scholarship to get more money,from higher profile international students now. What will happen to the burger flipping refugee who needs english? Or the refugee who is not needed for diversity anymore? It is depressing that this is what this business holds as important. Philanthropic is without profit. I hope students go to other schools in area if they are available.
