Motley Crue announces Spokane tour stop

Motley Crue announces Spokane tour stop

Bust out your leather jacket, acid wash jeans and stock up on AquaNet, because Motley Crue is coming to town. This is the last tour for the iconic band, and tickets for the Spokane Arena stop go on sale March 1st at 10 am.


Motley Crue announced The Final Tour by signing a formal Cessation of Touring Agreement, so unlike other rock stars and pop divas that have announced retirement tours, the bad boys of rock won’t be returning to the stage when the tour ends. Tickets went on sale for other shows at the end of January and nine shows have already sold out.

Quirky museum goes up for auction

Quirky museum goes up for auction

It's the end of the line for Carr's "One of a kind in the world" Museum, one of Spokane's more quirky attractions that you may have never heard of.

The museum closed its doors after owner Marvin Carr passed away last year and, this weekend, all of the unique treasures from his museum are being auctioned off.

This Saturday is your chance to get your hands on some truly unique items like an alligator-sized warship or an actual alligator. Just about anything you can imagine -- and a few things you likely can't -- will be put on the auction block.

"Everything had a story and for Marvin that was part of the museum and just be able to tell that story and get that across to people how important some of these items were," Carr's close friend Jeff Owens said.

"Wonderful man, huge heart, and we hated to see him go. He was wonderful," Owens said in describing Carr.

Owens is an auctioneer and, naturally, the best person to find new homes for all of Marvin's worldly possessions, including a Tanzanian sculpture made from one solid piece of ebony.

Spokane Public Library extends hours

Spokane Public Library extends hours

This time last year Spokane Public Library thought 2014 would be a grim year. Dwindling funds meant they would likely have to close at least one branch and reduce hours even more. However, a levy passed last February not only ensures all the branches will stay open, but for the first time in eight years the Indian Trail, East Side and Hillyard branches will be open five days a week.


“Budget has been difficult,” said Eva Silverstone, Communications Manager for Spokane Public Library.
