WSU Extension celebrates 100th year

A group of college students pitched in last week to help get a community garden growing for the season in southwest Spokane.

The 18,000-square-foot plot uses the latest techniques in vegetable and berry farming to provide produce to low-income residents in the city.

Their partner is Washington State University Extension, which this week is celebrating its 100th year of providing research and assistance to Spokane and other counties in the state.

EWU celebrates Eagle Week in Cheney, Spokane

EWU celebrates Eagle Week in Cheney, Spokane

This week is Eastern Washington University's Eagle Week in Spokane and Cheney and there are plenty of activities to celebrate, all leading up to the annual Red and White game on Saturday, April 26 at Roos Field.

Head Coach Beau Baldwin says his student athletes are spending the week out in the community talking to high school students and getting fans pumped.

He says the big game Saturday is a chance for the community to see what they have been working for. A chance to finally get out of the weight room and, for the younger Eags, a chance at a big break.

"They're getting some of their first opportunities, especially if they came in as a Freshman last fall. A lot of those times you were red shirting on the scout team, and now you're getting your first opportunity to really compete within our defense. It's always fun to see those guys emerging too during spring practice," said Coach Baldwin.

Gonzaga sues Daiquiri Factory owner for copyright infringement

Gonzaga University has filed suit against Jamie Pendleton, the owner of Spokane Downtown Daiquiri Factory, for using Spike, the Gonzaga Bulldogs mascot, and Gonzaga University's trademarks to promote his business.

A suit was filed Tuesday on behalf of the Corporation of Gonzaga University against Pendleton Enterprises, LLC, Pendleton Broadcasting, Inc. and Jamie Pendleton. The suit claims that Pendleton has been using Gonzaga University's trademarks -- including Spike -- to promote his businesses.

A nine-page addendum to the suit is filled with pictures of a person dressed as Spike, wearing a Gonzaga University sweatshirt with a bulldog head and paws, in various scenes either acting as a DJ for 104.5 JAMZ, standing in front of the establishment, holding a bottle of Fireball liquor inside the bar or holding a glass next to a beverage machine with a stenciled name on its face that reads "Bulldog Lemonade."
