  • The visionary gaze

    Eddie Adams' 1968 Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph Murder of a Vietcong by Saigon Police Chief emerged as one of the most unforgettable images of the Vietnam War. The grimace on the prisoner's face, the sinewy arm firing the gun, the reali
  • Letters to the Editor

    I'm sure anyone who watched the Bill Moyers' Coming Clean special on PBS (March 26) was shocked and appalled at the realities of the chemical poisoning that is taking place in this country with full knowledge of the chemical industry, and the complete lac
  • Notes to Mother

    Various species of flora and fauna will not be the only things winding their way through Riverfront Park this Sunday. A procession of words -- descriptive of and inspired by the tangible properties of life on Earth -- takes center stage in th
  • Blind justice

    Donald Manuel Paradis came out from the dark last week to the sweet, sweet light of freedom, after being a wrongfully convicted death row prisoner of 21 years due to the Idaho judicial system's ineptitude and a prosecutor's zealotry. He joi
  • Nature on parade

    A cobra slithering next to a caribou in downtown Spokane might cause a bit of a commotion on any average day, but Earth Day allows for some exceptions. Especially when the caribou are made of cardboard and cloth and the cobra is made of
  • Earth Day Essays & amp;amp; Poetry

    Thanks to Denie Inman's sixth-grade literature class at Cataldo Grade School for contributing these Earth Day essays and poems. And thanks to Foster Walsh's 10th-grade honors English class at Lewis and Clark High School for sending us these Earth Day essa
  • Walker's Woes 04/26/01

    Ever since it became painfully clear that the River Park Square parking garage would struggle mightily -- even teeter on the brink of insolvency -- people have wondered how the garage's reality could lag so far behind the expec
  • Citizen's Critique-Bridget Jones' Diary

    I enjoyed reading Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding -- however, if I am sick in bed with a cold or flu, this is the kind of movie that I would want to watch. It is funny, sexy and most of all, human. Renee Zellweger is a true comedienn

  • Spring renewal

    Daffodils and tulips, fresh-turned earth and green buds, bright mornings and warm sunshine, chirping birds and the soft rhythm of raindrops. Spring awakens our senses to fresh aromas, tastes and colors after winter's deep slumber. It's
  • In Cash we trust

    Who hasn't blues guitarist CASH McCALL performed with over his illustrious, 35-year career? Celine Dion and Michael Bolton probably (nobody wants to get up there with those guys). That's a drastically abbreviated list, but to be honest, t

    Hunting regulation is back before the voters again this fall. Initiative 713 would make it a gross misdemeanor to capture an animal with a steel-jawed leghold trap, neck snare or other body gripping trap. It would als
  • CD Review - Buckcherry

    Crass and obvious rock music from a group of L.A. poseurs more interested in attitude than interesting ideas. You know an album is bad news when you immediately discover that the music inside sounds exactly how you predicted it would by l
