Great posts...it is the most info I have found about Spokane on the net!!! We have been at Ellsworth AFB Rapid City SD for 16 years when they anounced they are closing it! We are considering Fairchild as our next home...May I ask a few questions of you kind people.
1. I have found on city-data.com and msn that there is 173 days of sunshine in spokane, but the spokane tourist site says 263 days...which is it?
2. Just read headlines "Spokane crime rates are soaring.." in tribune...what kind of crime?
3.Is there anywhere for a data entry clerk and a customer service rep to work near Medical lake? Or is all the jobs in Spokane proper?
4.How are the driving conditions in the winter...I've also read Spokane has 110 days a year of fog...is that correct?
5. Is the community happy to have the base in the area... Rapid City is fairly unfriendly to the military. Dont really notice all we do in our volenteering, community service etc...I think they will notice when we are gone.
6.What do grade school teachers starting wage...
Thank you in advance for your help...I truly appreciate it.
