Ecology Department will help fire departments get rid of toxic foam
10/16/2019 8:44pm

Its already responsible for contaminating water in Airway Heights, and now the Washington Department of Ecology is trying to get it out of other fire stations across the state.The state restricted the use of the toxic firefighting foam back in 2018, leaving many fire stations with an extra supply. Thanks to funding provided by the Legislature, the Department of Ecology will be able to help these stations out.RELATED: Airway Heights residents asked to participate in water exposure studyAs a firefighter, responding to danger is part of the everyday job.We already had one line of duty death, said Brian Schaeffer, City of Spokane Fire Chief.However, Schaeffer said this death could have been preventedI can tell you our cancers in the department are on the rise, said Schaeffer.While the exact cause has not yet been determined, firefighters said part of the risk is being exposed to toxic chemicals, including a substance called PFAS.Theyre used in firefighting foams. They make the foams work a lot better and help put out petroleum fires, said Andy Wineke with the Washington State Department of Ecology.There have been a few cases across the state where the chemicals have gotten into peoples water supply, including out in Airway Heights.The state restricted its use in 2018, leaving many fire departments with a supply they dont know how to get rid of. Thats where the Washington Department of Ecology is stepping in.Were going to help them safely get rid of them. Its going to go into incineration, and then they can switch to a non-fluorinated foam, said Wineke.The Department of Ecology plans on taking the foam to a licensed hazardous waste incinerator in Utah, Texas, or Arkansas.Theyre asking fire officials to complete a survey on their website, so that they can get an idea of how much material is out there.

Spokane mayoral candidates debate union support
10/16/2019 7:59pm

Bought and paid for has become a common phrase in Spokanes race for mayor, but now its union support that had one side calling out the other.In a televised debate Tuesday night, Nadine Woodward used some of her time to call out her opponent, Ben Stuckart, for the amount of union support he has.If you look at his top 45 contributors on his Public Disclosure Commission, outside of his family, 30 percent is special interests, unions and people outside the state of Washington, Woodward said.4 News Now checked the numbers to see if that was completely accurate.We found that only one top 45 contribution came from out of state a personal donation from Minnesota.Woodward is correct in terms of how much union support Stuckart has.About 32 percent of his top 45 contributions come from special interest and union groups.So he can say Im bought and paid for by the developers, or the ads can, simply not true hes bought and paid for by the unions, said Woodward.Stuckart was quick to respond about unions.They represent the workers, and Im proud to have the largest union in the city ask me to support because that represents a thousand employees, Stuckart said. We need to improve the environment for our employees.Nine of those contributions came from the west side of the state, along with one from Colbert and three from Spokane.Among those in Spokane The Firefighters Union PAC, the Regional Labor Council, and the United Food and Commercial Workers.But regardless of where they come from, Stuckart says theyre important to have.An employee contacted me from the Solid Waste Department, and they are understaffed right now, Stuckart said. We hired more waste collectors two years ago, and they never got hired. Theyre hurting out there and Im proud to have their support, because we need to take care of our employees.

Deputies arrest man for trespassing, exposing his backside to laundromat employee
10/16/2019 6:14pm

Spokane County Sheriffs deputies arrested a man on Tuesday for trespassing at a Spokane Valley laundromat and exposing his bare backside to an employee who asked him to leave. Deputies initially responded to reports of a homeless man with a weapon at the laundromat in the 9200 block of E. Sprague, a relase said. When they got there, an employee told deputies she found 39-year-old David Buswell sleeping inside the business. She said she recognized Buswell as someone who had trespassed there before. The employee said when she woke Buswell and told him to leave, he picked up a piece of rebar and swung it around, though not at her. When she told Buswell to put the rebar down, the employee said he turned, pulled his pants down, and exposed his bare backside to her before walking away. Deputies found and arrested Buswell a while later. They learned he had an active misdemeanor warrant for disorderly conduct, and that he had been arrested multiple times over the course of 20 years. He was booked into the Spokane County Jail for indecent exposure, criminal trespass 1st degree, and his misdemeanor warrant.

4 for 4: Getting to know Spokane City Council candidate Karen Stratton
10/16/2019 4:50pm

Karen Stratton is a candidate for Spokane City Council in district 3. Stratton is a current member of the council, representing district 3. She previously served as a legislative aide in the Washington State House of Representatives and was an aide to Spokane Mayors Jim West and Mary Verner. Stratton is a graduate of Marycliff High School and earned her bachelors degree from Eastern Washington University. Stratton answered the following four questions for 4 News Now. What is the biggest issue currently facing SpokaneLack of affordable housing and the lack of a homeless shelter solution for this winter. Both of these contribute to the homelessness problems which are complex and require the coordination of a lot of services and groups that provide them.How should the city approach the homeless crisisWe should continue on the path we have already started, with creation of regional shelters with social services and by encouraging the building of affordable housing. The only thing lacking at the moment is an administration willing to put the effort and resources into the problem.What are the potential opportunities of Spokanes growth What challenges need to be addressedThe challenge is the perception in some folks that Spokane is not thriving, fueled in part by the homelessness conversation. Despite all the fear-mongering, Spokane is doing quite well. Major capital projects like Riverfront Park are nearly complete, construction and economic development are up, and more and more young professionals are choosing to stay in Spokane. The irony of all this growth is that a certain portion of our population is becoming displaced by rising home prices, which leads to the perception that, because the homeless population is growing and visible, citizens are unsafe and Spokane is not a good place to live. The opposite is true.What personal accomplishment are you most proud ofIn my five years on the City Council I have stayed true to my promise to citizens of the District 3: I have remained close to the neighborhoods and I have focused on making sure that basic city services are the core of our effort, services as police, fire, garbage pick-up and emergency communications. I have also worked hard to protect the civil service system, which has been under constant attack by an expensive, top-heavy administration that devalues the contributions of rank and file city employees.
