Quotes & amp;amp; Notes 

by Inlander Staff


Trouble in Paradise -- The unified front of stiff upper lips emanating from the River Park Square camp over the years is starting to crack. It had to happen. In a legal free-for-all that can accurately be described as fingers pointing in all directions, what made 'em think they could resist that... powerful... urge... to sue people!


Now former mall manager Bob Robideaux's on the filing end of things, and he's taking on the Cowles family, his patron for many a year. It's just like a scene out of Law and Order, when the detectives separate the perps and they start ratting each other out looking to cut a deal with the DA. But while hardcore garage-saga junkies might get their fix over this ironic little turn of events, it's unlikely that the Cowles and Robideaux will be able to split up. That's because at the crucial time when all the deals were done, Robideaux was the Cowles' agent. In the federal case, that means that they are stuck together, for better or worse. This doesn't mean that the divorcees won't try to blame each other for their possible shortcomings as a couple; it only means they'll be unlikely to get anyone to listen.





Drive Hammered, Get Nailed -- The Spokane County Sheriff's Department is part of this appropriately titled program that cracks down on drunk drivers around the holidays. Drunk, stoned, strung out, high and otherwise impaired drivers are the single biggest cause of accidents that end in tragedy. If your blood alcohol level is 0.08 percent or above, you're busted. So don't even think about it: Sheriff Sterk has his troops on the lookout.





Get Out the Paint -- A vigilant reader pointed out that the striping on Spokane streets leaves a lot to the imagination. Louis Sims -- yes, we think he's the same guy who ran for the Valley city council -- sent us four pictures of crosswalks that were never painted, turn-arrows that are basically gone and missing lines all over the place. Considering that several pedestrians have been hit in crosswalks lately, maybe it is time to do something about the lack of stripage.





The Price of One Spokane -- In his latest newsletter, Mayor John Powers says the city has spent $23,812 in cash and another $8,304 in donated staff time toward the project. The Spokane community, on the other hand, has spent $241,000 cash and as in-kind donations on One Spokane. We can't wait to see One Job come out of it.
