Here’s a photo for the Inlander of Terry Horne, whose basement has been inundated with water a couple of times due to the fact that her and her neighbors homes were built on land with a high water table without proper drainage. Horne is hoping that Spokane County can help her and neighbors, who live near Cheney, WA. In this photo, she shows a sump pump that is used to pump water from under her property to the street. https://www.inlander.com/spokane/for-years-theyve-pumped-water-into-the-street-to-keep-their-homes-from-flooding-now-they-want-spokane-countys-help/Content?oid=7870808

SANE Nurses Spokane

Here are photos for the Inlander of Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) nurses Beth Sheeran, RN, and Aleshia King, RN. They are nurses who have specialized training in collecting evidence for rape kits and then serving as expert witnesses. They are trying to put together a centralized group of SANE nurses locally that would make sure that every time someone goes to the hospital for a rape kit, a SANE nurse is available. That is not the case locally right now. https://www.inlander.com/spokane/these-spokane-nurses-want-to-make-sure-every-sexual-assault-victim-has-access-to-specialized-care/Content?oid=7619370
