The Eagles are coming back
After their 2015 show at the Spokane Arena (voted best of the year by Inlander readers), the classic rock group will stop in Spokane once again, but this time the band will look a little different. Co-founder Glenn Frey died since 2015, and has been replaced by his son Deacon Frey. Country star Vince Gill is another new addition.

'Everybody Counts'
Spokane is changing the way it counts the number of homeless people. With better data, the city hopes to find better solutions.

Legal weed in jeopardy
The Trump administration is rolling back an Obama-era policy that allowed states to legalize and regulate marijuana. The new policy, announced today by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, lets federal prosectors decide how to enforce the federal law prohibiting the drug. The move comes just days after recreational marijuana shops opened in California.  (Associated Press)
