Teams needed to run the TC50

It's time for runners to sign up for the 4th annual TC50 Relay Race! The name “TC50” stands for Teen Closet and... 50 miles! The race consists of a 50 mile course, consisting of 10 legs (they are not equal in length).  Spokane area high schools are used as start/finish, water stops and transitions. The focus is on the high schools, because that is the age group most served by Teen Closet.

The race is Saturday, June 14th.  Teams of up to 10 can compete.  All ages and athletic abilities are welcome. The cost is $300 per team up to 10 runners, $200 for high school teams. There is an increase in registration fee if your team signs up after May 31st.

River Park Square opens new public patio

River Park Square opens new public patio

There’s a new place to sip an iced coffee with friends on warm summer day thanks to River Park Square. The shopping mall opened a public patio on Thursday in an effort to meet the need for more gathering spots downtown.


“We really hope that it will activate downtown,” said River Park Square General Manager Bryn West. She came up with the idea for the patio after hearing a speaker at an event talking about how to utilize spaces already available. West thought it would be a great idea to turn the large front entrance of River Park Square in a public patio.

Shuttles provided for Bloomsday Trade Show

Shuttles provided for Bloomsday Trade Show

Due to construction, parking will short in downtown Spokane for the Bloomsday Trade Show on Friday and Saturday. In an effort to reduce parking stress, Bloomsday is providing free shuttles from the Spokane Arena to the Convention Center.


"The expansion of the Convention Center and construction of a new hotel across the street are going to be great additions to Spokane," said Lilac Bloomsday Association President Steven Jones. "But they'll make getting in and out of the area challenging for at least this year."

Gonzaga students excited about NCAA tournament, but plan to cheer from home

Just north of Gonzaga University's campus, three students were tossing a football in the street Monday night. As they did, they talked about what many students will discuss until Friday, the Zags match-up against Oklahoma State.

The three guys wish, instead of playing catch, they could be planning a trip to San Diego to watch it.

"Oklahoma State has one of the best players in the nation in my opinion in Marcus Smart, so that will be a tough match-up for any of our guards," senior Cooper Erlandson said.

Erlandson was lucky enough to watch Gonzaga win the WCC title in Las Vegas. He says many students, like him, are cashed out.

"I'm sure a lot of students would love to get there, it's just a hard deal getting back to classes. Ultimately we wish (Gonzaga) would cancel classes for a couple days," he said.

"It would be great to do it if we could, it was too bad they didn't get matched up here in Spokane." Erik Jarvey said.

The Gonzaga men's basketball team faces a familiar foe Friday in Oklahoma State. They're 5-0 against the Cowboys all time. The most recent win came last season in Oklahoma.
