  • The Shaara gift

    How do you write a book for an audience that already knows how it's going to end? It's the kind of question any self-respecting writer of historical fiction needs to consider, and one that has significant ramifications for how the novel is
  • Work Remains On Riverpark Mall 06/21/95

  • Tale as old as time

    I'd heard that the most frightening part of this Disney musical wasn't the beast of the title, but the wolves and ogres in the deep, dark forest. Yet these beasts aren't particularly scary; no need to keep the kids away on their account.
  • News needed 06/21/95

    It's been strange in recent weeks to watch the public debate on the downtown Spokane redevelopment project, especially the mainstream media's lack of coverage on the topic. Most strange has been the fact that the
  • Ready for take-off

  • Loan Denied 08/02/01

  • Open air entertainment

    Here in the Inland Northwest, natural settings are abundant. They surround us, with the Rocky Mountains yielding the sun in the morning, and the more distant Cascades receiving it at night. And on a more controlled level, we surround nat
  • Pun-tastic voyage

    Drawing distantly on the conceits of Fantastic Voyage, that lumbering 1966 science-fiction chestnut, as well as 1987's Innerspace, we once again find ourselves in the innards of man: break us down to the molecular level, and what do we find?

  • From Tibet with love

    Someone asked me to explain Buddhism in a nutshell, and I said, 'Do no non-virtue whatsoever. Practice virtue solely. And completely train your mind.' " Those are the words of Lama Inge, the leader of the Padma Ling Buddhist temple on We
  • Citizen critique-Jurassic Park III

    After seeing this movie, I was very disappointed -- by its reviews! Practically every review for Jurassic Park III that I've seen has been negative. But everything that has been said about it is wrong. It's be
  • Plane speaking

    Inside a nondescript hangar within a maze of similar buildings at Spokane's Felts Field is Addison Pemberton's inner sanctum, his holy of holies, his clubhouse for aviation historians and antique aircraft nuts. Inside, you find all the co
  • Semantics of the deal

    River Park Square parking garage critics, most specifically the "new minority" on the City Council, continue to muddy the issue by failing to draw necessary distinctions. They begin with a lament unfortunately wrapped in more than a small
  • The Spokane sun-god

    Spokane's Felts Field has an illustrious history infused with likewise illustrious characters and aircraft. Among the many aviation firsts connected with the airfield was the flight of the Spokane Sun-God, a 1929 Buhl CA-6 sesqui-plane th

  • Stand and deliver

    When Jakob Dylan and his band THE WALLFLOWERS were recording their second album, Bringing Down the Horse, they weren't thinking about hitting it big. Instead, the goal was far more modest. "When you're a band that's not successful, you're
  • CD review-Lucinda Williams
