companion. Kylee is truly an amazing role model who helped to open doors for me and who taught me so much about the kind of woman I hope to be. I love Kylee so much and I know that she is well on her way to becoming a Spokane institution, just like craftsman houses, the Shriner’s Hospital and talented kids. Of course Kylee always encouraged me to write thank you letters, so thank you for putting out such a high quality magazine—just for me!

FATHER’S DAY Blythe, I just read your Editor’s Letter (Fathers


Michelle A. Ellingsen


Day!, June 2011). That was great. I’m a divorced father of two. When we split up nine years ago we agreed on the kids being with each of us, one week with one parent and one week with the other. They are now 15 and 17. I love them and I have done very much what your father had done with you. I’ve sacrificed my income substantially since the day we divorced so I could always be there for them when they needed me and not be stuck somewhere on the other side of the city when they needed me the most. I appreciate your story Blythe. You have turned out beautiful as my kids are, too. Neither will


be in town this weekend


unfortunately, but we are close. My dad (80) is in Las Vegas and we talk almost every day...He is an amazing father to my two sisters and myself...We, too, are blessed. Thanks again, Blythe, for the story. It made me


think about what’s most important on this earth... Who made us and who we’ve become ourselves!

BELATED PRAISE The April/May issue was amazing! It was


almost as if you had written an entire magazine just for me: My family and I have been working really hard


this year to reduce our carbon footprint, and your stories, A Year of Plenty and Spokane Public Market, will help me on my way. I live in a 1917 craftsman house that my mother is constantly “improving” and she really loved the Rennovations Required story. My Aunt Helen had many surgeries at the Shriners Hospital when she was a child. The Shriners Hospital impacts so many people in the Inland Northwest thank you for fantastic coverage (Spokane’s Shriners Hospital A Legacy of Love and Hope). Patty Duke is so cool and keeping theatre alive in Spokane is really important. Sophie, who played the child Helen Keller, is really an amazing actress and she is my little friend. But my favorite part of the issue was Kylee


Dennevan’s What I Know. As Kylee’s “Teen,” I got to spend one year as her near-constant


(Medication vs. Meditation, June 2011) very good, and hope that in the future you might expand the types of practitioners you mentioned. Our organization, the Spokane Holistic Chamber of Commerce, has many professional members who provide health care services to the community. Our web site lists many excellent practitioners. Again, thanks for making the consumer know of the services in our Spokane community. Sincerely,


Charles Lightwalker President, Spokane Holistic Chamber of Commerce


BIKE DISLIKE I was surprised to read the misinformed segment


by Mr. Vincent Bozzi in the Lilacs and Lemons section of the June 2011 issue of Spokane Coeur d’Alene Living. In his segment he repeats several errors and misconceptions about cyclists and reinforces several misunderstood aspects of both the RCW and the Municipal Code re: bicycle traffic and use of roads and sidewalks. In doing so, he further endangers both cyclists and motorists. I urge you to retract and correct these comments, and to cite the appropriate regulations pertaining to cycling. Many thanks for your consideration of this


important issue.

LILACS & LEMONS We enjoy your magazine. This area is very special


and it’s great to acknowledge it to each other. Now, regarding the Lilacs and Lemons page:


Regarding bikes taking a whole lane. It’s much safer for the bike to be in the middle of the lane. If you’re riding toward the curb, the chances of a car or truck side swiping you while passing is much greater. And it’s against the law to ride on the sidewalks.I agree that it can be annoying when bikes are in the center of the lane, but I try to be thankful that they’re doing their bit toward lessening our air pollution, etc. Thanks again for your hard work and creativity in keeping Spokane Coeur d’Alene Living magazine alive and well.

Corrections: The advertisement for Mario & Son in


the June issue depicts a Gold Award for Best Granite instead of the Silver Award. The Gold Award in 2010 went to RW Gallion Floors. We regret the error.
