Supply Lines

Hospitals work to reduce waste — and save money — by selling unused inventory
Inside a sealed glass jar, a tiny white heart valve wastes away. The single valve, which looks a little like a pulled tooth with the roots still attached, costs between $5,000 and $8,000, says Murray Walden, president of the Spokane-based company H-Source.

Help Where It's Needed

The newly expanded Providence House of Charity clinic diverts patients from the ER
For years, homeless people staying at the House of Charity shelter in downtown Spokane had few options for medical care. There was a medical clinic in the shelter, but it was only open a couple of days a week.

Helping Heroes Heal

Join the discussion of how the humanities can help veterans coming home from war
As civilians, it can seem impossible to understand the true burdens of what it's like to serve in a war — how it hardens veterans' hearts and clouds their outlook on "normal" life when they finally come home. This emotional, mental and physical toll will be explored in a talk hosted by Humanities Washington, with author and Seattle Central College professor Jeb Wyman sharing his insight on the subject, drawn from hundreds of hours of interviews with veterans of the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Honey Tees

Downriver Golf Course creates a new home for bees
The greens at Downriver Golf Course were sipping on some compost tea this past summer as pumpkins and tomatoes thrived in a nearby organic garden and new wildflowers fed three hives of healthy honeybees. It's all part of head superintendent Mike Greene's plan to make the city-operated golf course a little friendlier for the environment.
