Back to School

Kris Dinnison stepped back to her teen years to become a novelist
A fleeting thought one day, scribbled into a journal: A girl who works in a record store. Yet this eight-word idea, jotted among pages of to-do lists and scattered musings, was meant to be something much bigger.

Love of the Game

A lifelong Spokane Indians fan looks back on his favorite summers
Indians baseball has played a major role in my life since childhood and — calendars be damned — the start of another season always signals the official start of summer in the Stalwick household. Count me among the many local baby boomers who tremble at visions of our 76 Union or Darigold baseball cards of the early 1960s Indians.

For Your Consideration

Support for fire victims, Women's World Cup and a jazzy must-see documentary
CHARITY | Fueled by rapid wind and extreme heat, fire broke out near Wenatchee on Sunday, taking out dozens of homes and city structures in its orange-and-black wake. Hundreds of people have already evacuated the area, and with temperatures set to rise this weekend, the future is uncertain.

"No drop" bike rides and routes to experience this summer
Bicycling doesn't have to be a solitary sport, a lone cyclist on dusty country roads.

In the Spotlight

ESPN is coming to town to let the world know about Hoopfest
We take Hoopfest for granted. For some Inland Northwesterners, it's just something you do.

Trickle Down Toughness: Dad, drink, basketball and the strange courage of an old man

Distilled: A shot of life
When I think of the term "distilled," I think of my grandpa, Herbert, in the hills of Montana during Prohibition, brewing moonshine. Many of my family's most cherished memories, at least for the men, have to do with the often ridiculous and humorous nature of the stories that surrounded drinking, bar fighting and the effects of strange distillery.

The Dream Team

Meet the Spokane squad who will defend their home turf
As the entries for the Hoopfest elite men's field rolled in, they featured some excellent teams, which is what you want at a high-profile event with ESPN looking over your shoulder. Those teams, though, all hailed from places like Chicago or Los Angeles or the other side of the Cascades.

Second Helping

The folks from Manito Tap House go refined with the Blackbird
There's not much that Patrick McPherson hasn't thought about when it comes to his new Blackbird Tavern & Kitchen. Not only are shards of beer bottles mixed in with the concrete of the sink, but the sink itself is shaped like a bottle of beer.

Tasty Connections

Growing community through the Inland Northwest Food Network
When Country Comfort Assisted Living owners Kimberlee and George Ciccone brought hungry, weed-eating goats onto their property, they got an unexpected side benefit: their residents loved the furry critters. This year, the facility wanted to add a garden to the goat-groomed land, but lacked resources.

Some changes in the restaurant scene near Gonzaga

Sea Change

Williams Seafood Market adds options for customers fishing for a quick bite
Mike Offield resisted the idea of adding a restaurant aspect to his seafood-focused market, but his wife kept working on him after he moved Williams Seafood Market & Wines to Spokane from the valley four years ago. His resistance proved futile.

It's Hoppin'!

Accolades abound, baseball gets its own beer and more brewery expansion news
I really hope you didn't wait until June 21 and the official start of summer to begin your summer beer-drinking regimen. But even if you made that ill-advised decision, there are a couple of months to play catch-up, so let's bring you up to speed on the very busy Inland Northwest craft beer industry.

New to the Bridge

Kyoko Sushi in Sandpoint reflects its chef's big personality
Everyone calls him Junior, but when it comes to his cuisine — especially sushi — Gary Lee Solis Jr. doesn't do anything in a small way. Take Kyoko Sushi, for example, which Solis recently opened in Sandpoint's Cedar Street Bridge complex.
