Lightning lit up the sky over the Inland Northwest Friday night and lasted well into Saturday morning. When I got into work Saturday morning, we have over 125 pictures sent in to us through email and Facebook, so naturally, I wanted to compile all of those pictures into one slideshow so we can re-live the magnificent storm all over again! Thanks for the photos everyone and enjoy the slideshow!

    SPOKANE, Wash. - A Spokane woman who was run over by a cyclist last month on the Centennial Trail has filed a lawsuit against the man she says didn’t even try to avoid smashing into her. On Sept. 22, 67-year-old Virginia Pearsall was walking near Kendall Yards with her sister when she heard someone behind her yell, “Hot pizza!” "I felt like I got hit by a truck," said Pearsall. "The impact was so great, it was unbelievable."

    WASHINGTON - You know they old saying, "If you love what you do, you'll never work a day in your life."  Some aren't fortunate enough (or brave enough) to live by that motto, but a pup in training to sniff out explosives in the CIA obviously wasn't digging what she was doing, so she's moving on. Hopefully to something she enjoys more.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - The convictions of some Washington residents for growing marijuana near Kettle Falls may soon be erased. That's after federal prosecutors say they shouldn't have spent money on the trial of the so-called Kettle Falls Five. The Spokesman-Review says that decision came more than two years after prosecutors convinced a federal judge they had the authority to try the medical marijuana growers.
