In Arizona, citizens in Maricopa County waited for up to five hours because elections officials to cut the number of polling stations across the county from 200 in 2012 to just 60 this year. Protect the right to vote. Tell your State Legislatures to say no to unnecessary voting restrictions.

My dryer stopped heating Saturday night. I placed an online request for appliance repair and was sent emails and texts stating a repair person would arrive between 8:00 AM and noon on Monday. The repair person called shortly before 8:00 AM on Monday and said I was the first stop on his route. He arrived within 15 minutes, diagnosed the problem (thermal unit), quoted me a price, and had it repaired; all within half an hour. I was very pleased by the service, and my 18-year-old dryer has been heating properly and drying just fine ever since.

Great place! I had to salvage a vehicle and called around and got quotes. Not only was the quote from Whitey's the highest I received, but they didn't deduct for towing like the other places did. I definitely would do business with them again.

If you are looking for a good place to take your animals in Spokane, I recommend the North Division Animal Medical Center. I have a cat that seemed to be having some abdominal problems. I was looking for a new place as the last place I went to was so expensive, plus they made me feel bad that I didn't get all their latest treatments and care plans. I actually called another place first that was recommended by a neighbor, but they didn't take walk-ins and were booked for a few days. That place recommended NDAMC. I called them about 7:45 AM and got an 11:00 appointment, but was also encouraged to come in at any time to see if we could get squeezed in. After I made the appointment, I read the reviews here and felt more than a little concerned. However, I decided to go ahead with the initial exam. Dr. Sipert and his technician Chrissy were awesome, as were the front desk staff. I felt like I was treated with respect and the prices were reasonable. They also didn't pressure me to have a bunch of tests taken, but offered quotes on things in priority order. I've been to other places here in Spokane and never felt completely comfortable as a pet owner and often faced sticker shock. When I found out that nothing was urgently wrong with my cat, I decided not to go forward with the tests and take her home for further observation, and my decision was respected. I purchased the flea treatment and got some recommendations for environmental pest treatments that I could buy over the counter. Finally, when I remarked about the good service on Facebook, one of my friends told me this is where she and her parents take their pets, as well as have them boarded. She also had nothing but good to say about this clinic. I'll be returning here whenever I need care for my cats.
