On March 2, from 3-5 p.m., musical groups will take the stage at Westminster Congregational United Church of Christ to raise money for Crosswalk, a local shelter for homeless teenagers.

At the annual Jam For Bread fundraiser, Free Whiskey (The Band), Heather Villa & Brian Flick and members of the Spokane Youth Choirs will perform. Gift baskets will be raffled for $1.

Tickets will be sold for a suggested donation of $10 for adults, $8 for students and seniors and $12 for families.

Last year’s concert raised $2,500 for the Crosswalk, which is an emergency shelter and a school-drop out prevention program that focuses on breaking the cycle of youth homelessness in Spokane.

How Journalists Are Not ‘Seeking the Truth and Reporting It’ with UI Homicides

Reporters are supposed to find the news, tease out rumor and innuendo to report facts; but too many reporters covering the story are using rumor as the basics of their stories. Too many are using words like “terrible” and “horrifying” in their work. I’m sorry, but: Duh. Of course the story is, they do not need to state the obvious. Following the memorial service at UI, too many reporters leaped onto the innuendo for their stories. One Spokane TV reporter speculating the crowd was uneasy because, “They did not know if the murderer was right next to them.” Talk about irresponsible reporting, that is a prime example. OK, I get it – the information is slow to come out. The police are protecting what information and leads they have. They absolutely do not want to jeopardize this case when it goes to court.
