Cellist Zuill Bailey kicks off series of free performances for Northwest Bach Festival

 

 

Cellist Zuill Bailey kicked off a series of 6 free Flash-Bach concerts on Wednesday with a noon performance in the Riverpark Square Atrium.

 

These flash performances are organized to make classical music more accessible to various people in different locations.

 

“I think that concerts are one thing. Those are people that know to go, they know the beauty of the music, they prepare themselves to go. But I really feel the need to bring music to people that may not know,” Bailey said. “It's basically bringing music to the people, in any way that I possibly can outside the concert hall.”

Social media abuzz after object streaks across sky

After a large object flew across the Spokane skyline Monday night, residents rushed to social media to question what it was. 

The KXLY 4 News Facebook page was flooded with messages and pictures of users reporting seeing a meteor-like object in the sky. Many people also called the KXLY 4 newsroom, asking what the object could be, while others who saw it described the sight as a bright, slow-moving object with a long tail.

According to SpaceWeather.com the fireballs seen re-entering the Earth's atmosphere were the third stage of a Chinese CZ-4B Long March rocket, which launched the Yaogan Weixing 26 satellite in December.

Owner finds silver lining in burglarized business

One of Spokane's small businesses was burglarized and vandalized this week, but the owners say there's a silver lining at Lucky Detour in Vinegar Flats. A group of people broke into the store and caused about $9,000 worth of damage.

The group smashed a window in the back of the store and destroyed merchandise inside.

Since the attack, owner Celeste Shaw said there has been an outpouring of support from the community, including people offering to help clean up, even leaving flowers outside their door.

Celeste said she's been amazed by the support and is thankful for the people supporting her and local businesses.

"It's amazing to me that someone would do something like this because I think they've really underestimated Spokane," she said. "I think they underestimate the community as a whole that Spokane is intolerant to that, that we're an anti-bullying city, that people join together in a really remarkable camaraderie. And what they did for bad has really done nothing other than create something really amazing. "

Seasonal weight restrictions in effect on Spokane County roads

Seasonal weight restrictions in effect on Spokane County roads

 

Seasonal weight restrictions are in effect on many Spokane County roads and will continue until further notice.

 

Roadway surfaces, and the structures beneath the surface, have become weakened during this winter's cycle of freezing temperatures, followed by warmer temperatures and precipitation. As a result, roads are vulnerable to severe damage and the implementation of weight restrictions reduces the need for increased road maintenance and vehicle repairs later this year. The County said these changes can differ each year. This means that different roads may, or may not, be restricted and the time frame for implementing the restrictions.
