Reports of two pairs of EA-18 Growlers were heard and seen across Eastern Washington and North Idaho. In the five minute span they flew over us, on-the-ground citizens asked the online void, “Did anyone see those jets fly over the South Hill?”
One pair of the aircraft were spotted in Coeur d’Alene around 3:44 p.m. Barely five minutes later, they were spotted in Spokane at 3:48 p.m.
(Updated 2:40 p.m.) - Spokane resident, Thuy-Dzuong Nguyen found some pants draped over a bridge in Riverfront Park. They’re a size 38 and overlook the Clocktower. After a little research, it turns out the pants are designer jeans by Earnest Sewn.
Maybe somebody thought it was a good 65 degree day for a swim. Hopefully the 12 mph wind from the southwest won’t ruin their fancy free pantless outing.
It was a puzzling moment for Jeanne McDermott on just as she was about to enjoy some Tuesday morning toast. Her recently acquired Franz Old-Fashioned white bread from Lake City Center ruined those plans.
She told the Coeur d’Alene Press that she couldn’t believe that the expiration date for the bread said, May 17th, 1955. There it was stamped onto the plastic wrapping in their bold ink.
I spent my Tuesday evening with Cpl. M. Carr as we patrolled south Spokane.We drove through East Sprague to monitor activity, discussed law with other Officers, went to jail and missed a stabbing by two hours.
A corporal is different than a officer. They’re still an officer, but they’re also an assistant team leader for their shift. They collect and photograph evidence. They conduct collision investigations. They stay available for officers when needed.
During the four and a half hours that I rode with Cpl. Carr, we assisted Officers with one incident.
They came to Spokane’s streets in their glittered and painted-blue skin with mermaid-esque fins attached to their legs. They were PETA protesters making a statement in front of the downtown sushi restaurant, Sushi.com.
At first, it was just a swarm of media surrounding the basking fish people as the protest started at Noon. Perhaps it was an excuse to get out of the office, but then nearby residents heard of the protest and rushed their way to Main and Stevens.
Policies in Washington could be changing to allow musicians to drink on stage during performances.
The Seattle PI reported yesterday that representatives from Seattle’s nightlife scene met with the state’s Liquor Control Board to discuss potential changes to guidelines that currently say musicians and entertainers can not drink on stage.
I spent my Thursday evening with Officer J. Willard as we patrolled North Spokane. We encountered a business with regular false alarms, a hit-and-run in an apartment complex and a domestic violence call. We also raced across town to respond to an incident where neighbors said they saw a man running around the West Central neighborhood with a gun. That fizzled to nothing eventually.
It’s not from a movie. It’s in Quincy, Washington. Jake’s Meatsoff of Highway 281 went up in flames Thursday afternoon. The fire was reported around 3 p.m. and was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived. Kyle Foreman, Grant County emergency management, described the fire as difficult due to 10-20 mph winds. Investigators are still determining the cause of the fire.
“Remember those Seven2 crime fighters? Car prowlers beware. I just got a peak of their batmobile-esque entry into the Spokane Interstate Fair demolition derby. The green machine is the brain child of their creative director, Jesse Pierpoint. If you recall from their car prowler pursuit, Pierpoint was the man who was originally wearing flip-flops during the pursuit but eventually threw them off, running barefoot through downtown Spokane.”
