  • The Summer of 1877

    Several generations of Nez Perce American Indians have settled around their elders to listen to stories about their forefathers, and the roles they played in the Nez Perce War back in 1877. They've heard about children clinging to the backs
  • Comedy slam

    It's not stand-up, scripted or subtle. But it is spontaneous, and it's provocatively funny, the new-to-Spokane brand of humor from SpoComedy -- a new competitive improvisational group housed in the old Magic Lantern Theater. SpoComedy's
  • Boy, oh boy!

    It's an often-repeated statistic these days that the video game business is bigger than the film industry. As it turns out, while domestic sales of video games are greater than domestic movie ticket grosses, the video game industry doesn
  • Fuhrman vs. Sterk

    by Ted S. McGregor After a quiet start, the reaction by the Spokane County Sheriff's Department to Mark Fuhrman's Murder in Spokane has been loud and aggressive -- but it has also missed the point. While Sheriff Mark Sterk has been careful to make sure tha
  • Citizen Critique-Moulin Rouge

    I have not paid much attention to the name Baz Luhrmann in the past, but I will now. Moulin Rouge, in my opinion, is one of the best movies ever made. It has singing and dancing -- a great chorus line and costumes, a lov

    COEUR D'ALENE -- Gonzaga University is looking into buying a large piece of land located in Cougar Bay, on the south side of the Spokane River across from North Idaho College. Gonzaga is playing host to a meeting here on Monday, looking
  • Cash savings

    The new electrical buy-back program credits consumers with 5 cents per kilowatt hour (Kwh) saved, above an initial saving of at least 5 percent, compared to the same time last year. It has already paid out $133,681.10 to Washington and
  • CD Review- R.E.M. Reveal

    A fellow R.E.M. fanatic told me he thought the boys (okay, now grown men) from Athens, Ga., resembled a corporation more than a band these days. That's kind of a bummer for anybody who loves R.E.M. as much as I do -- and as much as he used to -- but after l
