The view from "it's better" — The Spokesman-Review's Shawn Vestal interviews Stranger columnist Dan Savage's partner (former Spokane native Terry Miller) about the "It Gets Better" project. Unsurprisingly, being a gay Shadle Park High School student in the 1980s wasn't easy. But (SPOILER) it got better. (SR)

No new jail — In one of the first issues of the year, Center for Justice's Rich Eichstaedt guessed that voters wouldn't pass the bond for a new jail. Voters won't get a chance. Commissioners want to delay the vote to "get it right." (KREM)

Smokeless Smokeless — Starting Thursday, minors won't be able to purchase electronic cigarettes in Spokane, Spokane Valley or Spokane County. (KXLY)

The sound of cricket — India and Pakistan, classically, hate each other. And since India has nuclear weapons, that's concerning. Perhaps, then, hope for a cooling of tension lies in the cricket game between the two countries. Good thing people rooting for opposing sports team don't get angry with each other, right?
