Update Sept 21st 2011

Manito Tap House has opened on Spokane's South Hill at 3011 S Grand Ave,The pub has been in the works for sometime so i'm glad to see it's finally open.

Brews on Washington has opened on Washington Ave in downtown Spokane.

Although it was announced back in late june it is worth noting that Caterpillar is building a 585,000 square foot building on the West Plains off of Geiger Blvd. and near the Spokane International Airport.The project is huge for Spokane because it means between 100 and 150 new jobs and hopefully shows that Spokane County is business friendly.The construction will start in late summer.

Coldwater Creek,the Sandpoint based women's clothing retailer has closed it call center in Parkerburg,Wv. and moved the employees into it's distribution center located on site,The call center on Hanley Ave. in Coeur d Alene will be the only call center and despite the closure Coldwater Creek will not hire on more people to make up for the missing employees however will increase hours for the CdA employees.

On the same note I have noticed construction work has started back up on the Coldwater Creek's IT building also off of Hanley in CdA.The building had been for lease from NAI Black and I know there was a sale pending according to the website last time I checked,if anyone knows about this fell free to e-mail me at

Red Bowl Asian bowls have opened inside Conoco at I-90 exit 11(Northwest Blvd.) and in the Conoco in Athol at Hwy 95 and Hwy 54.

Thin Air Community Radio on KYRS 89.9 and 92.3 in Spokane will be on the air full power soon(presently they are on a low power signal) on 88.1 once all tower construction is done,although the signal on 92.3 will stay on air but 89.9 will not as it's signal is weak due to a Christian Station in Post Falls on the same channel.

More to come......
