MORNING HEADLINES: SARP shot down, Second Avenue delayed

Posted on Wed, Oct 27, 2010 at 8:26 AM

So much for SARP Unsurprisingly, the Spokane Valley City Council voted 5-2 against a progressive planning agenda that aimed to turn the city into, well, a city. They sent the Sprague Appleway Revitalization Plan to the city’s planning commission, which will bring a recommendation back to the council. (KREM) 

Police shooting victim had been suicidal Quentin Dodd, the man killed by police during a domestic abuse call on Sunday, was mentally unstable, according to a report, and had laid down before an approaching train in July. (SR)

“You don’t take a Taser to a knife fight” Spokane County Sheriff's Office Sergeant Robb Sherar says only two in ten deputies carry a Taser on patrol, in part because it’s not enough to stop some threats. (KREM)

Second Avenue won’t be finished until spring Work on the downtown Spokane arterial has been delayed by the discovery of many underground utility lines and vaults. The city says it’ll pave the street to a drivable condition next month, then tear it up again in March or April. (KXLY)
