Buzz Bin 

by Inlander Staff & r & & r & Bring Change & r & You're halfway through the Bloomsday run on Sunday. You're hot and tired. But don't think those dollar bills you stuffed between your shoelaces will do you any good, man. Because near Mukogawa, at the Sans Souci Apartments, the Coke machine in the lobby there won't even accept paper money. (We're pretty sure that dispenser doesn't like runners.) Six-ounce bottles of Dasani, man. Fiddy cents. But bring quarters.





Native Broadcasting & r & Singer/songwriter Jim Boyd of the Colville Tribe has just started a public-affairs show on Thin Air 92.3 KYRS, airing on Mondays at 3 pm. Spokane-area tribal issues, education and national-level Native issues will be among Boyd's discussion topics on "Surrounded by Tribes." Visit kyrs.org.





Just Giving It Away & r & Whitworth alums Kevin and Kerry Parker may be taking Christian charity to an extreme. They're opening a Dutch Bros. Coffee outlet on the corner of Second and Washington, OK? And this weekend, they're giving away every drink on the menu for free, all day long. To repeat: Free drinks! And we're talking all day long: On both Friday and Saturday, the freebies will flow all the way from 5:30 am to 10 pm. Visit www.dutchbros.com.





Man With the Badge & r & In 1876, right after the James-Younger gang raided a bank in Northfield, Minn., James Glispin led the posse that captured the Younger brothers. (Frank and Jesse James got away.) Seven years later, Glispin moved to Spokane Falls, soon becoming the town's first police chief and then advancing to sheriff of Spokane County. He's buried out by the river in a virtually unmarked grave.


To remedy this oversight of a man who contributed much to Spokane's peace of mind -- not to mention calming the good folks who lived 130 years ago in Watonwan County, Minnesota -- a memorial will be held on Thursday, May 11, at 2 pm at Fairmount Memorial Park, 5200 W. Wellesley Ave. Police honor guards and a mounted Border Patrol unit will be in attendance. Call 710-5669.





La Bandera de las Estrellas & r & Now that the president has come out against singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" in Spanish, consider this passage from Kevin Phillips' description in American Dynasty of George W. Bush's first presidential campaign: "When visiting cities like Chicago, Milwaukee or Philadelphia, in pivotal states, [Bush] would drop in at Hispanic festivals and parties, sometimes joining in singing 'The Star-Spangled Banner' in Spanish, sometimes partying with a 'Viva Bush' mariachi band flown in from Texas."


There are four different Spanish versions of "The Star-Spangled Banner" on the State Department's Web site.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
