Re: “It's Spokane vs. Wilmington, N.C., for Best American Riverfront — vote now!

To clarify: The voting ends at 9 a.m. Pacific Time on Monday, Oct. 20. Also, you can vote on every device -- phones, tablets, laptops, desktops... Vote early, vote often!

Re: “It's Spokane vs. Wilmington, N.C., for Best American Riverfront — vote now!

Okay, as someone who has lived in both cities. I was born in Wilmington, N.C. and lived in Spokane from 1983 - 1988 and still have family there, I can say you can't really go wrong with either. However, Wilmington is certainly a river town and is renowned for its historical river front. The Cape Fear is beautiful and the collection of shops, breweries, restaurants, and historical attractions are awesome. I mean George Washington slept there! It is also home to the U.S.S. North Carolina, and one of the most beautiful garden districts around.

But, to be fair, it has been some time since I have lived in Spokane but I can remember there is something special about Bloomsday making its way downtown, grasping the gold ring at the carousel, and the clock tower. And the Spokane falls give the downtown area a certain smell that is clean and pure. I love both and they seem worthy. Love that both are finalists. .

Re: “Regional candidates mingle with workers at annual labor rally

OK, Lulubelle, I accept your challenge! It's Labor UNION. A group of workers who have joined an organization to protect workers rights. And yes, Labor UNION endorsed Larry Haskell knowing his answer regarding 'Right to Work'. Mr. Haskell was honest when he interviewed, as he always is. Mr. Beggs, on the other hand, could not commit to an answer when asked if he supported Collective Bargaining. To many, this means he does not. Mr. Haskell has been a UNION member dating back to 1969 when he joined the UFCW in Seattle at the age of 15. Outside of his 21 years of military service Mr. Haskell has always been a UNION member. Mr. Beggs has never been a UNION member. Mr. Haskell knows and supports UNION. Mr. Beggs knows profiting from victims. And as for 'Right To Work', I would hardly call it "union busting". If a UNION is run with integrity and fairness to all, that UNION can stand on its own and attract members. Are you against a person having 'rights'? Or just 'rights' that you disagree with?

Professor Dolezal I really liked this story you wrote me been a young black man this really hit home for me because i was raised in Georgia so i understand the talk really well my mom and grandma gave me the talk many time and i really think it helped me while i was growing up i really didn't understand everything they were telling me but as i got older i started understanding why its was so important for me to listen to everything i was taught because everything you do as a black my man will always be judged harder then any other race of people i feel like your a black man you have to always ways be on your best behavior because someone is waiting for you to fall.

Re: “Regional candidates mingle with workers at annual labor rally

Interesting that when labor UNIONS support Democrats they are evil incarnate........but when the endorsement goes to Republicans is all sweetness and light. And Lila won't even utter the word union......hey girl, you were at a labor UNION gathering......get any on ya? But on the other hand, I don't understand why labor unions would support Haskell when in the "We Beileve, We Vote" questionnaire he said he was undecided on whether or not he supported the union busting 'right to work' laws.

Re: “Regional candidates mingle with workers at annual labor rally

It's hardly surprising that the Inlander won't accurately report the names of all the candidates endorsed by labor in Spokane. Both Larry Haskell and Tim Fitzgerald received the backing of labor over their opponents and both are Republicans. Beggs even spoke at labor's endorsement meeting and came away empty handed once they heard his agenda.. You have to wonder why that happened. But you won't read about that in the Inlander.

It's also not surprising that the Inlander won't report that when Beggs supporters showed up to the labor rally uninvited, they were shown the door since that candidate wasn't endorsed by labor. You have to wonder why that happened. But you won't read about that in the Inlander.

Re: “Regional candidates mingle with workers at annual labor rally

You conveniently left out the part where Labor is endorsing two Republican candidates. Larry Haskell for Spokane County Prosecutor and Tim Fitzgerald for Spokane County Clerk. You're welcome.

Re: “Share your experience with mental illness

Private businesses keep their doors open and paychecks flowing by feeding off of citizens diagnosed with a mental health issue and using the mental health court to extend LRA's (least restrictive alternative). A huge majority of citizens have no clue, time or resources to understand how these businesses capitalize off citizens dealing with a neurobiologal brain disorder aka mental health disorder.

Re: “Spokane Valley's Ed Pace: STA should ask STA Plaza people about the STA Plaza

You are getting a bit closer to the truth, but not quite there. Also, his name is Ed Pace, not Ed Wade.

Re: “The Pakootas for Congress campaign launches its first TV ad

The old "War on Women" ploy? Has that ever worked in the 5th District with women who weren't voting Democrat already, anyway? And even if it flips some votes to Pakootas, will it be enough of a change to affect the outcome? If Pakootas is down by 20% and might pick up an additional 5% with the ad, what's the point? This feels like he's going through the motions.

Thanks for the heads up, Zelda. The post has been updated to reflect Ed Wade's Hewlett Packard position as "product manager," as stated on his LinkedIn profile. -- Dan Nailen

Ed worked at Hewlett-Packard but he was *not* an executive. Let's keep the embellishment of credentials to a minimum, OK?
