Elevated Art Form

Upcycled art lifts leftovers into the limelight
Where some see trash, others see treasure.


Talk to your town
there are things you want to tell your city, and perhaps you should write it a letter. It could be a love note, or maybe it includes some constructive criticism of how Spokane could do better.

For Your Consideration

Magicians and the graveyard shift
TV | The Doctor is dead. Long live the Doctor.

Native Pride

The 100th Spokane Tribal Labor Day Powwow isn't just a celebration of culture. It's a shared experience
One hundred years ago, the annual Spokane Tribal Labor Day Celebration was engendered as the Wellpinit Fair. It was called such because the idea of a fully fledged "powwow" seemed too loaded at a time when assimilation, not diversity, was the watchword.

Eagles Rising

How Eastern Washington became an unlikely college football powerhouse
Eastern Washington University is a fine educational institution, but prestigious?

The Last Toss

In his senior season, Spokane's own Connor Halliday hopes to get the national respect he deserves
One year ago, Connor Halliday passed for more yards than any other player in Washington State history.

The Warrior Face of American Football

Understanding why guys put on pads and beat the crap out of each other — and why we watch it happen
People who work together will win, whether it be against complex football defenses, or the problems of modern society. — Vince Lombardi

Fighting Words

Two female MMA fighters from Spokane are ready to take on every other woman in the UFC
Two minutes into the first round, Julianna Pena slips her left leg under her opponent's ankle.

The New Vandals

Idaho looks to get out of college football's cellar, and they might have the weapons to do it
Maybe this is the rebuilding year to end the streak of rebuilding years.


There was a solid decade and a half when you could watch a rerun (or two) of The Simpsons on any weeknight. It didn't matter if you moved to a new city or were on vacation across the country, there always seemed to be an episode or two in the hours before prime time.

Gridiron Eats

Football snacks don't have to be lazy
That liquid cheese from a can isn't impressing anyone at your football watch parties.

Clean Slate

A new coach and new players give Whitworth a fresh look this season
For the first time since the fall of 1994, there will be a different Pirates head coach pacing the sidelines of the Pine Bowl.

For Your Consideration

Time travel, a page turner and dancing at home
TV | Time travel, the space-time continuum: it's 2014 and we still can't go back to the past and experience events we wish we could. But in a work of fiction, dropping into a Scottish wormhole is no problem at all.

Imaginary Friends

The very real role that fantasy plays in our everyday lives
It doesn't matter who this man really is. In this world, no one cares that he's a 31-year-old business owner who lives in North Idaho.

Summer Stages

There's still plenty of time to get in on the season's theater boom
As this epically hot summer soldiers on, there's plenty of time to seek shelter from the heat inside the confines of an air-conditioned theater.

Lovers and Madmen

Interplayers and EWU join forces to stage a wonderful performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream
When Theseus, Duke of Athens, waxes philosophical by lumping together "the lunatic, the lover and the poet," he hits on something closer to the heart of A Midsummer Night's Dream than the far more frequently quoted axiom by Lysander that "the course of true love never did run smooth."
