"The Streak" documentary featuring Pullman HS football ready to debut

"The Streak" documentary featuring Pullman HS football ready to debut

A soon-to-be Senior at Pullman High School is preparing to debut his pet project nearly two years in the making.

Bryan Nakata was a sophomore when a series of e-mails was shared with him, containing journal entries written in 1957 by a former student and football players. The entries detail the days leading up to a football game that would ultimately end one of the longest winning streaks for any team in the country – 35 games stretching from 1953 until October 1957.

Bryan says it's an incredible feat that has been lost in history until now. He was immediately sucked in to the story and became more interested the more he dug.

“I began to find lost stories from our school and town that I knew were important to our history,” he said. “My collection began with one yearbook out of the four years that our school library had, and five or six photos from the Whitman County Historical Society.”

Firework sales blast off this weekend

The Fourth of July is just a week away, and firework sales begin this weekend!

Washington State Fire Marshal Chuck Duffy wants to remind residents to know the local laws before purchasing and discharging fireworks, and to make sure you are only using legal fireworks. This year, 937 licenses were issued for retail firework stands.

A fireworks ban has been in place in the unincorporated areas of Spokane County for 21 years, as well as Spokane, Spokane Valley, Cheney and Liberty Lake.

Fireworks are legal on private property in Airway Heights, Medical Lake and Deer Park.

Bottle rockets, missiles and firecrackers are illegal anywhere in Washington state.

In Coeur d'Alene, non-aerial fireworks are allowed on private property but not in public places like Tubbs Hill or City Park.

If you do find yourself in an area where fireworks are allowed, there are some guidelines you to keep in mind to make sure your family has a safe and fun Fourth.
