Spokane Valley People

   The Scoop is first and foremost an enjoyable hobby and exercise. Craig believes that every person has something to teach, something that will add to everyone’s life. Since he first began journalism school at Baylor, Craig has enjoyed gathering the stories of people’s lives.

   Furthermore, God gives people different talents and it is up to us to use and develope those talents the best we can. They say that best way to improve at writing is to write and so The Scoop is a rewarding way to continually keep Craig in training as a writer.

The Scoop started out as a a bi-monthly newsletter that features an interesting Valley person, often the owner of a well known, longstanding business. The eNewsletter went out to nearly 1,000 subscribers and the paper version had a distribution of more than 1200.

We thought the Scoop was a great way to promote our business. It allows us to make new contacts and stay on people’s minds by giving them valuable and interesting content. In addition, the compilation of the stories printed in the Scoop is in a sense a community service. The Scoop archives below are a recorded history of the past and written sketches preserved for the future about life in the Spokane Valley today.

Below is a list and links to all the stories I wrote for the Scoop over the years.
