MORNING HEADLINES: Sinking, grounding, and expanding

Posted By on Wed, Feb 23, 2011 at 9:08 AM

Breaking convention -- A mere five years after opening the Spokane Convention Center, the Public Facilities District wants to add on a $65 million, 90,000 expansion. But what of C.I. Shenanigans? There won't be a C.I. Shenanigans, after the PFD gets through with it. (SR)

Sinking anchor – Remember TV anchor Debra Wilde? The Washington State Toxicology Lab does. A blood test revealed that the reason her Jeep Cherokee jumped the guardrail, drove down an embankment and ended up in the creek was, in all likelihood, alcohol related. (KREM)

Chopping the chopper – The Spokane Sheriff's helicopter has aided in rescues, searched for criminals, and excited four-year-old boys who spot it in the air for years. But, due to budget trouble, the chopper may soon be grounded. (KXLY)

A no vote on voting – There won't be a public vote on the proposed McEuen field plan in Coeur D'Alene. The Coeur D'Alene city council may kill the plan, or pass it, but they won't let the voters decide either way. (CDAP)

Chicago's hope -- Rahm Emmanuel, Obama's foul-mouthed former chief of staff, has been elected the new mayor of Chicago. But in a notoriously corrupt city, does Emmanuel think he can change how things get done in the Chicago? Will he even try? (Chicago Tribune)
