Trump still supports the right of all Americans to own pantomimed guns, even if they're on the terror watch list


My Name is Earle. Her Name is Colvin
Shawn Colvin and Steve Earle are going to be folkin' up Spokane in August.

To Forgive, Divine
• Councilwoman Karen Stratton still feels hurt that David Condon endorsed her opponent in last year's election. Can they put all that stuff behind them to work together

Spokane Valley has a new Police Chief 

• Sadly, it is not Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich in a Groucho Glasses disguise. 


To Protect and Misallocate
• Stellar story by Patrick Erickson of KHQ finds there's still dirt left to dredge up in the Straub case. Former Director of Business Services Carly Cortright, in an interview with Heather Lowe of Human Resources, says that Straub spent seizure money for inappropriate purposes.  (KHQ)

*Puts Pinky Finger To Corner of Lip*
• How much have Spokane's school zone cameras gathered in fines? $1 million dollars. (Spokesman-Review)

How Delightfully Gubernatorial!

• Gov. Jay Inslee and Would-Be-Gov. Bill Bryant will face off in Spokane in August. (Spokesman-Review)

• Trump uses part of his campaign speech to blame the failure of Iraq's reconstruction on soldiers stealing from reconstruction funds. Again. His team later said he meant Iraqi soldiers, not American soldiers, which doesn't make any sense. Either time. (CNN)

Now, Donald Trump is suggesting he is going to join with Hillary Clinton in calling for just that. (Politico)

They'll Send Them With a Big Red Button Labeled "Reset"

• Supposedly, Russia has threatened to release the emails Hillary Clinton had on her private server. (Yahoo)
