  • The woman in the tree

    Imagine living more than two years (738 days, to be exact) in a space that's roughly four by seven feet. You cook, sleep, wash, go to the bathroom, write, read, exist all within this space. You have no power, except what can be gotten fro

  • Another classic vintage

    The sun that warms our tart fall days has helped make this a stellar year for wine-grape production in the sprawling Columbia, Yakima and Walla Walla valleys. The sun-warmed days contrast with crisp, cool autumn nights during the critica

  • The wait is over

    There's only one question the folks who've been waiting not so patiently for this film's release need to have answered. The question isn't whether the film is well made. Chris Columbus (Mrs. Doubtfire, Home Alone) is certainly competent, if a

    Uncommon Women and Others -- This play made me feel old. I remember when it made me feel young: I was in college, and Wendy Wasserstein was just emerging as a promising playwright. It was the '70s, when phones had cords, papers were compo

    Ah well, the Hollywood folks get one shot at doing things right, then go and blow it. Unless you're living and viewing movies in Los Angeles, San Francisco or Washington, D.C., you're just going to have to wait till 2002 to catch the big scre

  • Out of the darkness

    In the metaphorical language of the seasons, the passing of fall into winter is often a time of sharpened awareness. We notice nightfall coming on early, the air is sharp with cold and the scent of dead leaves, and we sense the mysteries of

  • History in the making-again

    The legend of Louis Davenport and his rise to local prominence reads like a frontier fairy tale, a rags-to-riches story of the highest order and a parable illustrating what can be accomplished when grand visions, determination and a stron

  • Citizen critique-Bandits

    Billy Bob Thornton gets a lot of grief -- for being weird, for being married to the much younger Angelina Jolie, for daring to step outside the behavior expected of big Hollywood stars. But maybe people are just jealous. Thornton is a great a

  • Video memories

    Trying to condense the Bamonte's 280-page, meticulously researched Davenport Hotel history into a 54-minute video documentary wasn't easy -- for the book's authors or the video production team of Jim Bolser and Robin Briley. But that's jus

    SPOKANE -- One could call Dennis Hession's seven-vote margin over Dean Lynch razor-thin, but that description doesn't really cut it. It's much thinner. Hession and Lynch are the two candidates for whom voters cast ballots on Nov. 6 i

  • The Davenport Waltz

    At the end of the Spokane's Legendary Davenport Hotel video documentary, a couple in tux and flowing gown float across the ballroom floor of the Isabella Room to the music of a waltz. It's a lovely sight, and one that might have been a co

    It's helping to foster an appreciation for jazz in the Inland Northwest and beyond. It's instructional. And it swings. It's the EWU JAZZ DIALOGUE FESTIVAL 2001, and as you read this it's raging on the Eastern campus in Cheney. Joining mor
