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

Cost of living was really a pretty minor issue at this rally. It was mentioned, but much more of the focus was on holding the legislature accountable for not passing a budget to fund basic education in this state. Voters have passed measures on smaller class sizes twice. The legislature is in contempt of court for not passing a budget. At the same time, legislators require more and more standardized testing which takes classroom instruction time away. This COLA thing is a red herring. Focus on the real issues.

The competition for teaching jobs in District 81 is fierce. If teacher pay is too low, there would be no or far fewer applicants. Like it or not, basic economic principles refute the suggestion that their pay is too low. And suggesting that higher pay is an issue for students is shameless.

Re: “Not so fast: Document undermines mayor's case to pay for Davenport Grand cleanup

I'm confused as to how a 2003 property agreement between the city and the PFD can impact a much-later property transfer (the Cloninger property didn't come into the city's hands until 2008 or thereabouts.)

Looks like Walt bought that. With as many attorneys as he has available and the PDC had available not to mention the City of Spokane's attorneys and counsel throughout the private offices, there is no way that Walt should have made it this far without knowing it was his bill.

Condon is just trying to make a great deal a better deal for Walt at the City of Spokane taxpayers expense. Don't be scuzballs.

I've seen Dave twice at the Gorge. Twenty times...that's incredible!

Re: “Rachel Dolezal explains why "Shorty can't breathe either" is problematic

I am Annie's ex sister -in-law, and I can assure you she is NOT racist. We have black family members we love. This about a man who can no longer breathe simply because he died at the hands of others! Please show your support for Annie by supporting her restaurant.

Re: “What to know about the Gorge Amphitheatre summer concert series

Seriously? That is it? Can someone just put Dave Mathews out of his misery. How many times can one person see the same show every summer?
