Spokane

 

"

Spokane (pronunciation: i/spo?'kæn/ spoh-KAN) is a city and the county seat of Spokane County in the state of Washington, in the northwestern United States. It is located on the Spokane River and west of the Rocky Mountain foothills in eastern Washington, 92 miles (148 km) south of the Canadian border, approximately 20 miles (32 km) from the Washington–Idaho border, and 232 miles (373 km) east of Seattle along Interstate 90. The city and wider Inland Northwest region is served by Spokane International Airport, which is situated 5 miles (8.0 km) west of downtown Spokane. According to the 2010 Census, Spokane had a population of 208,916 of people, making it the second largest city in Washington and the 102nd largest city in the United States.

The name of the city is drawn from the Native American tribe known as the Spokane, which means "Children of the Sun" in Salishan. Known as the birthplace of Father's Day, it is officially nicknamed the "Lilac City". David Thompson explored the area with the westward expansion and establishment of the North West Company's Spokane House in 1810. This trading post, was the first long-term European settlement in Washington. Completion of the Northern Pacific Railway in 1881 brought major settlement to the Spokane area, and it was officially incorporated as a city that same year, known at the time as "Spokan [sic] Falls". In the late 19th century, gold and silver were discovered in the Inland Northwest. The local economy has traditionally been based on natural resources, being a center for mining, timber, and agriculture; however, the city's economy has diversified. Spokane hosted the first environmentally themed World's Fair at Expo '74.

Many of the older buildings in the downtown area are in the Romanesque Revival style and many can be attributed to architect Kirtland Kelsey Cutter, who contributed to the rebuilding of the city following the Great Fire of 1889. The city contains Riverfront and Manito parks, the Smithsonian-affiliate Northwest Museum of Arts and Culture, the Davenport Hotel and the Fox and Bing Crosby theaters. The Cathedral of Our Lady Lourdes serves as the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Spokane, and the city is also the center of the Mormon Spokane Washington Temple District. Gonzaga University was established in 1887 by the Society of Jesus, and the private Presbyterian Whitworth University opened three years later in north Spokane. In sports, the Gonzaga Bulldogs collegiate basketball team competes at the Division I level. Professional and semi-professional sports teams include the Spokane Indians in Minor League Baseball, Spokane Shock in arena football, and Spokane Chiefs in junior ice hockey. As of 2010, Spokane's only major daily newspaper, The Spokesman-Review, had a daily circulation of 76,291 and Sunday circulation of 95,939.

The first humans to live in the Spokane area arrived between 12,000 to 8,000 years ago and were hunter-gatherer societies that lived off the plentiful game in the area. The Spokane tribe, after which the city is named (which means "children of the sun" or "sun people" in Salishan),[7] are believed to be either their direct descendants, or descendants of tribes from the Great Plains.[8] When asked by early white explorers, the tribe said their ancestors came from "up North."[8]

Early in the 19th century, the Northwest Fur Company sent two white fur trappers west of the Rocky Mountains to search for fur.[9] The trappers became the first two white men met by the Spokane tribe, who believed them to be Sama, or sacred, and set the trappers up in the Colville River valley for the winter.[10]

Trading post

The explorer-geographer David Thompson, working as head of the North West Company's Columbia Department, becaming the first European to explore the Inland Northwest.[11] Crossing what is now the U.S.–Canadian border from British Columbia, Thompson wanted to expand the North West Company further south in search of furs. After establishing the Kullyspell House and Saleesh House trading posts in what is now Idaho and Montana, Thompson then wanted to expand further west. He sent out trappers, Jacques Raphael Finlay and Finan McDonald to construct a fur trading post on the Spokane River in Washington that would trade with the local Indian tribes.[11] It was established in 1810 at the confluence of the Little Spokane and Spokane, becoming the first enduring European settlement of significance in Washington state.[12] Known as the Spokane House, or simply "Spokane", it was in operation from 1810 to 1826.[7] Operations were run by the British North West Company and later the Hudson's Bay Company, and was the headquarters of the fur trade between the Rocky and Cascade mountains for 16 years. When the latter business absorbed the North West Company in 1821, the major operations at the Spokane House eventually shifted north to Fort Colville, reducing its significance.[13]

After the last campaign of the Yakima Indian War, the Coeur d'Alene War of 1858 was brought to a close by the actions of Col. George Wright, who won decisive victories against a confederation of tribes in engagements at the Battle of Four Lakes and the Battle of Spokane Plains. Hostilities against the natives ceased and this opened the inter-mountain valley of the Pacific Northwest to the safe settlement of white people.[14]

American settlement

Joint American–British occupation of Oregon Country, in effect since the Treaty of 1818, eventually led to the Oregon Boundary Dispute as large influxes of American settlers began arriving by the Oregon Trail. The first American settlers in the present-day city were J.J. Downing and S.R. Scranton, cattle ranchers who squatted and established a claim at Spokane Falls in 1871.[15] Together they built a small sawmill on a claim near the south bank of the Spokane Falls.[15][16] James N. Glover and Jasper Matheney, Oregonians passing through the region in 1873, recognized the value of the Spokane River and its falls for the purpose of water power.[15] They realized the investment potential and bought the claims of 160 acres (0.65 km2) and the sawmill from Downing and Scranton for a total of $4,000.[17] Glover and Matheney knew that the Northern Pacific Railroad Company had received a government charter to build a main line across this northern route.[15] Amid many delays in construction and uncertainty over the completion of the railroad and its exact course, Matheney sold his interest in the claim to Glover.[18][a] Glover confidently held onto his claim and became a successful Spokane business owner, mayor, and later came to be known as the "Father of Spokane."[19]

In 1880, Fort Spokane was established by U.S. Army troops under Lt. Col. Henry Clay Merriam 56 miles (90 km) northwest of Spokane at the junction of the Columbia and Spokane Rivers to protect the construction of the Northern Pacific Railway and secure a place for U.S. settlement.[20] By June 30, 1881, the Northern Pacific Railway reached the city, bringing major European settlement to the area.[21][22] The city of Spokan Falls (the "e" was added in 1883 and "Falls" dropped in 1891) was officially incorporated as a city of about 1,000 residents on November 29, 1881.[23][b] The marketing campaigns of transportation companies with affordable fertile land to sell along their trade routes lured many settlers into the region they dubbed "Spokane Country".[24][25] The city's population ballooned to 19,922 in 1890, and 36,848 in 1900 with the arrival of the railroads.[26] By 1910 the population hit 104,000, and Spokane eclipsed Walla Walla as the commercial center of the Inland Northwest.[27] In time the city came to be known as the "Capital of the Inland Empire" and the heart of a vast tributary region.[28]

The 1883 discovery of gold, silver, and lead in the Coeur d'Alene region of northern Idaho triggered an influx of prospectors. The Inland Empire erupted with numerous mining rushes from 1883 to the late 19th century.[29] Mining and smelting emerged as a major stimulus to Spokane. At the onset of the initial 1883 gold rush in the Coeur d'Alene mining district, Spokane became the outfitter of choice among prospectors due to the area's proximity, lower prices, and convenience of being able to obtain everything "from a horse to a frying pan."[30] It would keep this status for subsequent rushes in the region due to its trade center status and accessibility to railroad infrastructure.[31][b]

Spokane's growth continued unabated until August 4, 1889, when a fire, now known as The Great Fire (not to be confused with the Great Fire of 1910 which happened nearby), began just after 6:00 p.m. and destroyed the city's downtown commercial district.[32] Due to technical problems with a pump station, there was no water pressure in the city when the fire started.[33] In desperate bid to starve the fire, firefighters began razing buildings with dynamite. Eventually winds died down and the fire exhausted of its own accord. As a result of the fire and its aftermath, 32 blocks of Spokane's downtown core were destroyed and one person was killed.[32]

Despite this catastrophe, Spokane continued to grow; the fire set the stage for a dramatic building boom.[26][d] After The Great Fire of 1889 and the rebuilding of the downtown, the city was reincorporated under the present name of "Spokane" in 1891.[23] Just three years after the fire, in 1892, James J. Hill's Great Northern Railway had arrived in the newly created township of Hillyard (annexed by Spokane in 1924)—the chosen site for Hill's rail yards.[34] The railroads in Spokane made it an important rail shipping and transportation hub for the Inland Northwest region because of its location between mining and farming areas (namely the Silver Valley and Palouse).[25][35] After the arrival of the Northern Pacific, the Union Pacific, Great Northern, and Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific railroads, Spokane became one of the most important rail centers in the western U.S.[26][36][28][37]

20th century

 

The expansion and growth of Spokane abruptly stopped in the 1910s and was followed by a period of population decline.[38] Spokane's slowing economy largely contributed to this decline. Control of regional mines and resources became increasingly dominated by national corporations rather than locals, diverting capital outside of Spokane and decreasing growth and investment opportunities in the city.[38]

During this time of stagnation there became unrest among the area's unemployed, who became victimized by "job sharks" who swindled men who applied for jobs. Job sharks charged a fee for signing up workers in the logging camps and employment agencies were known to cheat itinerant workers, with bribes sometimes paid to periodically fire entire work crews, generating repetitive fees.[39] It is around this time in Spokane that the first of many nation-wide free speech fights conducted by the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) or "Wobblies" had begun, spread, and garnered national attention.[40] In 1908, the IWW launched a campaign led by James H. Walsh with the slogan "Don't Buy Jobs" in the streets around the Spokane employment agencies.[40] More IWW union members from all over the West soon arrived to participate in what was becoming a publicity venture. Within a few weeks the jails were overflowing from those violating the ordinance prohibiting soapboxing.[40] Among those jailed was feminist labor leader Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, who published an account in the local Industrial Worker of her experiences in a Spokane jail.[41]

After mining declined at the turn of the 20th century, agriculture and logging became the primary influences in the Spokane economy.[42] The population explosion and the building of homes, railroads, and mines in northern Idaho and southern British Columbia fueled the industry.[42] Although overshadowed in importance by the vast timbered areas on the coastal regions west of the Cascades, and burdened with cumbersome, monopolistic rail freight rates and stiff competition, Spokane became a noted leader in the manufacture of doors, sash, blinds, and other planing mill products.[43] The oppressive rail freight rates were much higher in Spokane than the rates in coastal seaport cities such as Seattle and Portland, so much so that merchants in Minneapolis could ship goods first to Seattle and then back to Spokane for less than to ship directly to Spokane, even though the rail line ran through Spokane on the way to the coast.[28][44][e] The 1920s and 1930s saw the similar, but less drastic, slow growth of the prior decade. The Inland Northwest region was heavily dependent on natural resources and extractive goods produced from mines, forests, and farms which experienced a fall in demand.[45] Spokane's situation improved slightly with the start of World War II as aluminum production commenced in Spokane due to the area's cheap electricity produced from regional dams and the increased demand for airplanes.[45]

 

After decades of stagnation and slow growth, Spokane businessmen formed Spokane Unlimited, an organization that sought to revitalize downtown Spokane.[46] A recreation park showcasing the Spokane Falls was the preferred option, and after the successful negotiation to relocate the railroad facilities on Havermale Island, this allowed the proposal of hosting a world's fair to be realized.[47] Spokane hosted the first environmentally themed World's Fair in Expo '74 on May 4, becoming the smallest city yet to host a World's Fair.[48][49] This event transformed Spokane's downtown, removing a century of railroad infrastructure that built the city and reinvented the urban core. After Expo '74, the fairgrounds became the 100-acre (0.40 km2) Riverfront Park.[50] The late 1970s was a period of growth for Spokane.[51]

The success seen in the late 1970s and early 1980s once again was interrupted by another U.S. recession in which silver, timber, and farm prices dropped.[52] The period of decline for the city lasted into the 1990s and was also marked by a loss of many steady family-wage jobs in the manufacturing sector.[53] Although a tough period, Spokane's economy had begun to benefit from economic diversification, being the home to growing companies such as Key Tronic and having research, marketing, and assembly plants for other technology companies helped lessen Spokane's dependency on natural resources.[52]

21st century

Spokane is still trying to make the transition to a more service-oriented economy in the face of a less prominent manufacturing sector.[53] Developing the city's strength in the medical and health sciences fields has been promising, resulting in the expansion of the University District with a medical school branch. Although the city faces challenges such as a scarcity of high-paying jobs, pockets of poverty, areas of high crime, and a sense of doubt regarding aspects of city government, there is an air of optimism for the city's future.[53]

The opening of the River Park Square Mall in 1999 sparked a major downtown rebirth that included the building of the Spokane Arena and expansion of the Spokane Convention Center.[53] Other major projects include the building of the Big Easy concert house (now the Knitting Factory), renovation of the historic Montvale Hotel, the Kirtland Cutter-designed Davenport Hotel (after being vacant for over 20 years), and the Fox Theater (now home to the Spokane Symphony).[54][55] The Kendall Yards development on the west side of downtown Spokane is one of the largest construction projects in the city's history. Directly across the Spokane River from downtown, it will blend residential and retail space with plazas and walking trails.[53]

Spokane became an important rail and shipping center because of its location between mining and farming areas.[35] In the early 1880s, gold and silver were discovered in the Inland Empire; as a regional shipping center, the city furnished supplies to the miners who passed through on their way to mine in the mineral-rich Coeur d'Alene, Colville and Kootenay districts.[107] The area is considered one of the most productive mining districts in North America.[108]

Natural resources have historically been the foundation of Spokane's economy, with the mining, logging, and agriculture industries providing much of the region's economic activity. After mining declined at the turn of the 20th century, agriculture and logging replaced mining as the primary influence in the economic development of Spokane.[42] As with the mining industry, the lumber industry in the city contributed to the economy by the means of outfitting the lumberjacks and millmen working in the hundreds of mills along the railroads, rivers, and lakes of northern Washington and Idaho.[109] Agriculture has always been an important sector to Spokane's economy; the surrounding area, especially to the south, is a productive agricultural region known as the Palouse.[53] This setting supports many vineyards and microbreweries that reside in the Spokane area as well.[110] By the early 20th century Spokane was primarily a commercial center rather than an industrial center.[111]

 

In Spokane, wood and food processing, printing and publishing, primary metal refining and fabrication, electrical and computer equipment, and transportation equipment are leaders in the manufacturing sector.[112] Gold mining company, Gold Reserve and Fortune 1000 company, Potlatch Corporation, a forest products company that operates as a real estate investment trust, is headquartered in the city proper.[113][114] Mining, forestry, and agribusiness continue to be important elements in the local and regional economy, but Spokane's economy has diversified to include other industries, including the high-tech and biotech sectors.[52] Spokane is trying to reinvent itself into a more service-oriented economy in the face of a less prominent manufacturing sector, particularly as a medical and biotechnology center.[53] Fortune 1000 technology company, Itron is headquartered in the area.[115] Avista Corporation, the holding company of Avista Utilities is the only company in Spokane that has been listed in the Fortune 500 at one time, being ranked 299 on the list in 2002.[116] Other companies with head offices in the Spokane area include technology company Key Tronic, hotelier Red Lion Hotels Corporation, and microcar maker Commuter Cars.[117][118]

The top five employers in Spokane are the State of Washington, Spokane Public Schools, Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children's Hospital, the 92nd Air Refueling Wing, and Spokane County.[119] The largest military facility and employer, the 92d Air Refueling Wing, is stationed at Fairchild Air Force Base near Airway Heights. The leading industries in Spokane for the employed population 16 years and older were educational services, health care, and social assistance, 26.5 percent, retail trade, 12.7 percent, and arts, entertainment, recreation, and accommodation food services, 10.4 percent.[2] As the metropolitan center of the Inland Northwest as well as parts of southern British Columbia and Alberta, Spokane serves as a commercial, manufacturing, transportation, medical, shopping, and entertainment hub.[112][120] In 2010, the Spokane–Spokane Valley MSA had a gross metropolitan product of $19.48 billion dollars.[121]

Economic development in the Spokane area primarily focuses on promoting six industries: manufacturing, aerospace manufacturing, health sciences, information technology, clean technology, and digital media.[122] Innovate Washington, a business incubator seeks to help and develop promising companies for success.[123] Companies have located or relocated to the Spokane area, drawn by the easy access to raw materials and lower operating costs, such as cheap hydroelectric power.[124][125] In an effort to further attract companies, area community and business leaders created the "Terabyte Triangle", a sizable area downtown with high-bandwidth fiber optic infrastructure in many buildings and wireless connectivity.[126]

Scranton, cattle ranchers who squatted and established a claim at Spokane Falls in 1871.[15] Together they built a small sawmill on a claim near the south bank of the Spokane Falls.[15][16] James N. Glover and Jasper Matheney, Oregonians passing through the region in 1873, recognized the value of the Spokane River and its falls for the purpose of water power.[15] They realized the investment potential and bought the claims of 160 acres (0.65 km2) and the sawmill from Downing and Scranton for a total of $4,000.[17] Glover and Matheney knew that the Northern Pacific Railroad Company had received a government charter to build a main line across this northern route.[15] Amid many delays in construction and uncertainty over the completion of the railroad and its exact course, Matheney sold his interest in the claim to Glover.[18][a] Glover confidently held onto his claim and became a successful Spokane business owner, mayor, and later came to be known as the "Father of Spokane."[19]

In 1880, Fort Spokane was established by U.S. Army troops under Lt. Col. Henry Clay Merriam 56 miles (90 km) northwest of Spokane at the junction of the Columbia and Spokane Rivers to protect the construction of the Northern Pacific Railway and secure a place for U.S. settlement.[20] By June 30, 1881, the Northern Pacific Railway reached the city, bringing major European settlement to the area.[21][22] The city of Spokan Falls (the "e" was added in 1883 and "Falls" dropped in 1891) was officially incorporated as a city of about 1,000 residents on November 29, 1881.[23][b] The marketing campaigns of transportation companies with affordable fertile land to sell along their trade routes lured many settlers into the region they dubbed "Spokane Country".[24][25] The city's population ballooned to 19,922 in 1890, and 36,848 in 1900 with the arrival of the railroads.[26] By 1910 the population hit 104,000, and Spokane eclipsed Walla Walla as the commercial center of the Inland Northwest.[27] In time the city came to be known as the "Capital of the Inland Empire" and the heart of a vast tributary region.[28]

The 1883 discovery of gold, silver, and lead in the Coeur d'Alene region of northern Idaho triggered an influx of prospectors. The Inland Empire erupted with numerous mining rushes from 1883 to the late 19th century.[29] Mining and smelting emerged as a major stimulus to Spokane. At the onset of the initial 1883 gold rush in the Coeur d'Alene mining district, Spokane became the outfitter of choice among prospectors due to the area's proximity, lower prices, and convenience of being able to obtain everything "from a horse to a frying pan."[30] It would keep this status for subsequent rushes in the region due to its trade center status and accessibility to railroad infrastructure.[31][b]

Spokane's growth continued unabated until August 4, 1889, when a fire, now known as The Great Fire (not to be confused with the Great Fire of 1910 which happened nearby), began just after 6:00 p.m. and destroyed the city's downtown commercial district.[32] Due to technical problems with a pump station, there was no water pressure in the city when the fire started.[33] In desperate bid to starve the fire, firefighters began razing buildings with dynamite. Eventually winds died down and the fire exhausted of its own accord. As a result of the fire and its aftermath, 32 blocks of Spokane's downtown core were destroyed and one person was killed.[32]

Despite this catastrophe, Spokane continued to grow; the fire set the stage for a dramatic building boom.[26][d] After The Great Fire of 1889 and the rebuilding of the downtown, the city was reincorporated under the present name of "Spokane" in 1891.[23] Just three years after the fire, in 1892, James J. Hill's Great Northern Railway had arrived in the newly created township of Hillyard (annexed by Spokane in 1924)—the chosen site for Hill's rail yards.[34] The railroads in Spokane made it an important rail shipping and transportation hub for the Inland Northwest region because of its location between mining and farming areas (namely the Silver Valley and Palouse).[25][35] After the arrival of the Northern Pacific, the Union Pacific, Great Northern, and Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific railroads, Spokane became one of the most important rail centers in the western U.S.[26][36][28][37]

20th century

 

The expansion and growth of Spokane abruptly stopped in the 1910s and was followed by a period of population decline.[38] Spokane's slowing economy largely contributed to this decline. Control of regional mines and resources became increasingly dominated by national corporations rather than locals, diverting capital outside of Spokane and decreasing growth and investment opportunities in the city.[38]

During this time of stagnation there became unrest among the area's unemployed, who became victimized by "job sharks" who swindled men who applied for jobs. Job sharks charged a fee for signing up workers in the logging camps and employment agencies were known to cheat itinerant workers, with bribes sometimes paid to periodically fire entire work crews, generating repetitive fees.[39] It is around this time in Spokane that the first of many nation-wide free speech fights conducted by the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) or "Wobblies" had begun, spread, and garnered national attention.[40] In 1908, the IWW launched a campaign led by James H. Walsh with the slogan "Don't Buy Jobs" in the streets around the Spokane employment agencies.[40] More IWW union members from all over the West soon arrived to participate in what was becoming a publicity venture. Within a few weeks the jails were overflowing from those violating the ordinance prohibiting soapboxing.[40] Among those jailed was feminist labor leader Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, who published an account in the local Industrial Worker of her experiences in a Spokane jail.[41]

After mining declined at the turn of the 20th century, agriculture and logging became the primary influences in the Spokane economy.[42] The population explosion and the building of homes, railroads, and mines in northern Idaho and southern British Columbia fueled the industry.[42] Although overshadowed in importance by the vast timbered areas on the coastal regions west of the Cascades, and burdened with cumbersome, monopolistic rail freight rates and stiff competition, Spokane became a noted leader in the manufacture of doors, sash, blinds, and other planing mill products.[43] The oppressive rail freight rates were much higher in Spokane than the rates in coastal seaport cities such as Seattle and Portland, so much so that merchants in Minneapolis could ship goods first to Seattle and then back to Spokane for less than to ship directly to Spokane, even though the rail line ran through Spokane on the way to the coast.[28][44][e] The 1920s and 1930s saw the similar, but less drastic, slow growth of the prior decade. The Inland Northwest region was heavily dependent on natural resources and extractive goods produced from mines, forests, and farms which experienced a fall in demand.[45] Spokane's situation improved slightly with the start of World War II as aluminum production commenced in Spokane due to the area's cheap electricity produced from regional dams and the increased demand for airplanes.[45]

 

After decades of stagnation and slow growth, Spokane businessmen formed Spokane Unlimited, an organization that sought to revitalize downtown Spokane.[46] A recreation park showcasing the Spokane Falls was the preferred option, and after the successful negotiation to relocate the railroad facilities on Havermale Island, this allowed the proposal of hosting a world's fair to be realized.[47] Spokane hosted the first environmentally themed World's Fair in Expo '74 on May 4, becoming the smallest city yet to host a World's Fair.[48][49] This event transformed Spokane's downtown, removing a century of railroad infrastructure that built the city and reinvented the urban core. After Expo '74, the fairgrounds became the 100-acre (0.40 km2) Riverfront Park.[50] The late 1970s was a period of growth for Spokane.[51]

The success seen in the late 1970s and early 1980s once again was interrupted by another U.S. recession in which silver, timber, and farm prices dropped.[52] The period of decline for the city lasted into the 1990s and was also marked by a loss of many steady family-wage jobs in the manufacturing sector.[53] Although a tough period, Spokane's economy had begun to benefit from economic diversification, being the home to growing companies such as Key Tronic and having research, marketing, and assembly plants for other technology companies helped lessen Spokane's dependency on natural resources.[52]

21st century

Spokane is still trying to make the transition to a more service-oriented economy in the face of a less prominent manufacturing sector.[53] Developing the city's strength in the medical and health sciences fields has been promising, resulting in the expansion of the University District with a medical school branch. Although the city faces challenges such as a scarcity of high-paying jobs, pockets of poverty, areas of high crime, and a sense of doubt regarding aspects of city government, there is an air of optimism for the city's future.[53]

The opening of the River Park Square Mall in 1999 sparked a major downtown rebirth that included the building of the Spokane Arena and expansion of the Spokane Convention Center.[53] Other major projects include the building of the Big Easy concert house (now the Knitting Factory), renovation of the historic Montvale Hotel, the Kirtland Cutter-designed Davenport Hotel (after being vacant for over 20 years), and the Fox Theater (now home to the Spokane Symphony).[54][55] The Kendall Yards development on the west side of downtown Spokane is one of the largest construction projects in the city's history. Directly across the Spokane River from downtown, it will blend residential and retail space with plazas and walking trails.[53]

Spokane became an important rail and shipping center because of its location between mining and farming areas.[35] In the early 1880s, gold and silver were discovered in the Inland Empire; as a regional shipping center, the city furnished supplies to the miners who passed through on their way to mine in the mineral-rich Coeur d'Alene, Colville and Kootenay districts.[107] The area is considered one of the most productive mining districts in North America.[108]

Natural resources have historically been the foundation of Spokane's economy, with the mining, logging, and agriculture industries providing much of the region's economic activity. After mining declined at the turn of the 20th century, agriculture and logging replaced mining as the primary influence in the economic development of Spokane.[42] As with the mining industry, the lumber industry in the city contributed to the economy by the means of outfitting the lumberjacks and millmen working in the hundreds of mills along the railroads, rivers, and lakes of northern Washington and Idaho.[109] Agriculture has always been an important sector to Spokane's economy; the surrounding area, especially to the south, is a productive agricultural region known as the Palouse.[53] This setting supports many vineyards and microbreweries that reside in the Spokane area as well.[110] By the early 20th century Spokane was primarily a commercial center rather than an industrial center.[111]

 

In Spokane, wood and food processing, printing and publishing, primary metal refining and fabrication, electrical and computer equipment, and transportation equipment are leaders in the manufacturing sector.[112] Gold mining company, Gold Reserve and Fortune 1000 company, Potlatch Corporation, a forest products company that operates as a real estate investment trust, is headquartered in the city proper.[113][114] Mining, forestry, and agribusiness continue to be important elements in the local and regional economy, but Spokane's economy has diversified to include other industries, including the high-tech and biotech sectors.[52] Spokane is trying to reinvent itself into a more service-oriented economy in the face of a less prominent manufacturing sector, particularly as a medical and biotechnology center.[53] Fortune 1000 technology company, Itron is headquartered in the area.[115] Avista Corporation, the holding company of Avista Utilities is the only company in Spokane that has been listed in the Fortune 500 at one time, being ranked 299 on the list in 2002.[116] Other companies with head offices in the Spokane area include technology company Key Tronic, hotelier Red Lion Hotels Corporation, and microcar maker Commuter Cars.[117][118]

The top five employers in Spokane are the State of Washington, Spokane Public Schools, Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children's Hospital, the 92nd Air Refueling Wing, and Spokane County.[119] The largest military facility and employer, the 92d Air Refueling Wing, is stationed at Fairchild Air Force Base near Airway Heights. The leading industries in Spokane for the employed population 16 years and older were educational services, health care, and social assistance, 26.5 percent, retail trade, 12.7 percent, and arts, entertainment, recreation, and accommodation food services, 10.4 percent.[2] As the metropolitan center of the Inland Northwest as well as parts of southern British Columbia and Alberta, Spokane serves as a commercial, manufacturing, transportation, medical, shopping, and entertainment hub.[112][120] In 2010, the Spokane–Spokane Valley MSA had a gross metropolitan product of $19.48 billion dollars.[121]

Economic development in the Spokane area primarily focuses on promoting six industries: manufacturing, aerospace manufacturing, health sciences, information technology, clean technology, and digital media.[122] Innovate Washington, a business incubator seeks to help and develop promising companies for success.[123] Companies have located or relocated to the Spokane area, drawn by the easy access to raw materials and lower operating costs, such as cheap hydroelectric power.[124][125] In an effort to further attract companies, area community and business leaders created the "Terabyte Triangle", a sizable area downtown with high-bandwidth fiber optic infrastructure in many buildings and wireless connectivity.[126]

How a Great Plumber Saved the Birthday Party

 

When you�re raising two toddlers, life gets pretty hectic and is full of surprises that seem to occur at the most inopportune times. While they provide me with more joy that they could possibly imagine, they also offer a lot more challenges that I could have dreamed of as well . But all in all, we�ve been able to navigate the issues without too much drama.

 

However, there was one time when I was preparing for a big birthday party for my oldest child, a precocious one who is very affectionate and yet always seems to find trouble . I had spent the entire week cooking and preparing everything for his birthday party to which we�d invited a lot of family members and of course, all his little friends.

 

Bright and early Saturday morning I started decorating the dining room in preparation for the big day . I�d made sure I had enough time to do everything but then I suddenly heard an odd noise coming from the bathroom. I went down the hallway and found water on the floor and my little boy running out of the bathroom and down the hallway .

 

Apparently something had clogged the toilet and it just would not flush, and kept overflowing every time I tried. While mopping up the floor was no problem, I found that I could not unclog the toilet to save my life. I knew I needed help and there was only one place to turn .

 

I called the plumber and hoped that he would be available quickly But as luck would have it he picked up the phone and said he�d leave immediately for our house. I should have realized I could count on him because he�d never let me down before, had a great reputation and did advertise himself as being available in emergencies.

 

20 minutes after my call, the plumber arrived at my front door . He�d brought his tools and as he entered the doorway he assured me he would take care of everything. I was so relieved. He went right to the bathroom and told me to just carry on with setting up for the party . My boys seemed happy to see him too, even if they didn�t quite understand what was going on. They sensed that I was in a much better mood.

 

Fixing the Toilet

 

The plumber got right to work on the toilet and then explained to me afterwards what had happened . Apparently, my little boy had decided to see just how much paper he could stuff down into the toilet before he flushed . The paper got stuck in the drainage pipe about two feet from the toilet and all the water naturally started backing up .

 

The plumber told me that if this should ever happen again I should immediately shut off the water at the valve to stop the water overflowing. He showed me where the valve was right at the base of the toilet and it�s very easy to turn it on and off. I�ll have to remember that next time something like this happens, although I had a pretty long talk with my son so hopefully this will not occur again . The plumber went on to say that once I�ve turned the water off I should try using the plunger to loosen the blockage and hopefully dislodge it so the toilet will flush everything out into the sewer. He said that the water in the toilet bowl should be enough to force the blockage to dislodge. Once the toilet water has passed down the pipe then I could turn the water back on and try flushing it again . If the water in the bowl is passing through easily, then turn the water back on and try a proper flush to see if the blockage has been removed .

 

However, my son was much more thorough in his work so the plumber had to use a snake to free up the blockage . He managed to push the wire into the paper and jar it loose which resulted in it going to the sewer system . Once he finished, he just turned the water back on and the toilet flushed normally.

 

Since it only took him a couple of minutes to free up the blockage, the plumber inspected the rest of the toilet and found that floating arm was not adjusted properly . I did recall that I could hear water running in the bathroom once in a while, but never really looked into it because everything seemed fine. In reality there was something wrong with the toilet.

 

He pointed out to me that the handle with the floating ball needed to be adjusted to prevent the water from running into the tank for no reason. Our water bill had gone up recently, so apparently this was why. So I was very thankful to him that he spotted this problem . He even showed me how to adjust it myself should this ever happens again.

 

The Plumber Saved the Birthday Party

 

I am so thankful to my plumber for saving the day by unclogging the toilet and taking care of another problem within a span of just 15 minutes. He was friendly and nice and the charges were very reasonable. I hate to think of how things would have turned out if he hadn�t been able to get here so quickly! . As it turned out I was ready for the birthday party in plenty of time and not one of our partygoers had any idea of what we had been through earlier in the day.

 

Before that morning I hadn�t given much thought to how important it is to know a good reliable plumber you can call in an emergency, I�m just so thankful I have one that really cares about his clients as well as the quality of his work. I am thankful and relieved that my plumber is one that really cares about his work and will make the time for me and his other clients on days when I�m sure he�d like to be doing something else .

Plumbing How To Fix Videos

 

Linda was trying to soothe her three-year-old son, Max, who was running a fever after having thrown up his breakfast .She held her youngest son Joe to her chest.He was two and fussy, running a small fever.Last night he had thrown up twice, and Linda hadn�t been able to sleep.Her other son Daniel was four, sitting on the floor in front of the television, half watching a colorful and loud show for preschoolers, half of his attention put on banging two plastic Spider-Man toys together.Every few steps Linda would bend at the waist, ducking down a bit to look out of the window behind the couch, and out to the driveway .Linda�s husband had gone in to work early, leaving before the Sun was fully up. Linda of course stayed home to care for the children .She had taken them downstairs, set them both in the living room and turned on the TV, then went to the kitchen to get breakfast together. At first she didn�t notice that the floor was soaking wet. Until she slipped, catching herself on the kitchen cupboard before falling down .The white tiles were soaked with a thin layer of freezing water. She scrambled to find the cause, which was a cracked pipe under the sink, spouting water all over the place .The pipe was slick with water and shining in the soft light squeezing in through the open cabinet. And poured some milk into their sippy cups, setting everything on the coffee table in front of the TV . They were now set so she grabbed the phone to call Ben at work .He was swamped, and annoyed when he took her call.He got even more surly when she told him what had happened. Hang up and call a plumber!� he ordered . They hung up and now Linda knew it was her problem to take care of . She went and sat on the sofa in the living room .They had been arguing over what show to watch, but settled on a cartoon about a young boy who happened to be a pirate.Linda had her phone in her hand and brought up the internet, where she googled plumbers in her area. She called one that looked good and they said they would send a plumber out immediately .So there she was, holding her youngest son, pacing back and forth and waiting for the plumber to arrive.Finally he did, forty minutes after she had called.He drove a large white van, pulled it into the driveway, climbed out and headed for the front door . Linda opened the front door, welcoming him before he was fully out of the van . �Hi, I�m Linda, thank you for coming�, she said as she greeted him on the front porch. �Hi, I�m Joe, glad you called�. .He was in his late thirties, tall and thin, wearing a large tool belt. Linda welcomed him inside, setting Max on the floor next to Stevie, and took Joe to the kitchen .She turned and set her youngest next to his brother, and then led Tim to the kitchen . I mopped up what I could, but the pipe�s broken and still spouting water,� she offered as she opened the cupboard under the sink . �No problem,� he said as he bent and opened the cabinet door.He peered underneath the sink and nodded his head .�I�ll cut off the water, and then I can get this fixed up in no time.� Linda was relieved that it didn�t seem like any big deal to the plumber .She didn�t know how hard it would be to fix the pipe, but it seemed like it wouldn�t be a big deal.Tim turned off the water valve to the pipe, then stood at the sink and turned the faucet on so any water left in it would drain.Then he bent once more and ducked under the sink. He cleared all the cleaning products out from under the sink so he could clearly see the problem, drying the pipe with a rag he pulled out of his toolbox . By now the boys were standing over him eyeing all of his tools .Linda�s two sons stood in the doorway, watching the man work . Joe then grabbed a small tub and putty knife out of the toolbox and went to work . The tub contained epoxy and with the putty knife Joe applied some to the pipe .He used the putty knife to apply some of the epoxy to the pipe.Next he wrapped the area with the crack in rubber, using two clamps to hold it tightly in place.Tim let the epoxy dry, then used water proof tape to wrap the rubber for added protection.He stood from under the sink, went to turn on the water valve, and then tried the faucet in the sink.The water ran from the spigot and down into the drain.Tim bent at his knees and made sure the pipe wasn�t going to leak again. It didn�t. He smiled and turned to see Linda with her sons in the doorway. �You�re good to go�, he said . �It was just a small leak, so there wasn�t any reason to cut the pipe out, the patch should hold just fine .� �Oh you�re a life saver,� Linda said, going to get her purse. When she arrived back in the kitchen she was pleasantly surprised to see that Joe had used her mop and bucket to clean up the mess . �Thank you so much, this really isn�t your job!� she exclaimed . Joe just shrugged his shoulders saying, �I�m happy to help, you have your hands full as it is with the boys .� When Joe was finished and all the cleaning supplies had been replaced under the sink, Linda wrote out a check, and then pulled some cash out of her wallet for his tip . Joe told her that wasn�t at all necessary, but she held firm and he finally accepted the tip, thanking her .He bent and gave a high five to both of the boys, then her left, leaving a very relieved stay at home mom behind him.
