Q.) Richard Biggs: Do you think that Ebola could become a pandemic that the world would not be able to recover from?

3.) She loves KHQ and she loves the Inland Northwest!

Q.) Paul Pridmore: How many job offers have you turned down over the years? What was the best one? 

A.) Stephanie: Honestly, I've been courted but I wouldn't leave here. My sons father lives here, and my boys need both of their parents. In my mind, moving for more money was never an option. Plus, I love it here!

A.) Stephanie: I'm craving french onion soup from The Onion, Tim

7.) Want to get away? Stephanie knows the perfect spot! 

Q.) Mary Bradley: Hi beautiful. I would like to know how I can win a free vacation? I have never been on one and can't afford one. I really need to get away. Can you help me? Love ya lady

A.) Stephanie: I want a free vacation too Mary Bradley. You can hike Tubbs Hill or take a nature walk. That always feels like a get away. 

8.) She loves saying "Hi" to her fans!

Q.) Preston Bolt: Hi Steph

A.) Stephanie: Hi Preston!

9.) She loves reporting on "good news." So if you have some, be sure to email her for a possible "Keeping Vigil" segment!

Q.) Diamond Augustus Wells: Stay classy Spokane Stephanie! Why does the news always have to be bad news? Can't you do more segments on the good news? If not find some good news. I would be willing to journey about and find good news in Spokane. :)
