Veterans Memorial Tribute Program Monday, Jan. 26 at Washington State Veterans Cemetery

A ceremony will be held on Monday, January 26th, to recognize 48 Spokane area veterans who have died and not received the rendering of Military Funeral Honors.

The ceremony will take place at noon at the Washington State Veterans Cemetery in Medical Lake. Honors will include unfurling of the US flag, a rifle volley and the playing of TAPS.

 

The community is invited to attend to pay final respect and honor to these men and women who have sacrificed to provide the American people with freedom. The ceremony will be held in the Committal Shelter which is not heated, so those in attendance should dress accordingly.

 

During Monday’s service, there will be one veteran who had ties to the local area and died alone back East. A local friend has requested adding him to the list and will be here to receive a flag in his honor.

IRS phone scams continue to be a serious threat

Aggressive and threatening phone calls by criminals impersonating IRS agents remain near the top of the annual "Dirty Dozen" list of tax scams for the 2015 filing season, the Internal Revenue Service announced today.

The IRS has seen a surge of these phone scams in recent months as scam artists threaten police arrest, deportation, license revocation and other things. The IRS reminds taxpayers to guard against all sorts of con games that arise during any filing season.

"If someone calls unexpectedly claiming to be from the IRS with aggressive threats if you don't pay immediately, it's a scam artist calling,” said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. "The first IRS contact with taxpayers is usually through the mail. Taxpayers have rights, and this is not how we do business."

Baby sitter charged with murder seeks additional information

A northern Idaho baby sitter charged with first-degree murder in the death of a 2-year-old says the Nez Perce County Prosecutor's office is stonewalling her request for additional information.

The Lewiston Tribune reports in a story on Thursday that 30-year-old Natasha N. Hodges is asking the 2nd District Court to intervene.

Prosecutors say Hodges was watching Rylee Mingo in 2012 when she struck the child in the abdomen, causing internal bleeding. Hodges called 911 when the toddler started having trouble breathing, but Mingo died a short time later at a hospital.

Hodges' attorney says Mingo died of natural causes and is asking for information about Mingo and her sibling's medical history.

The attorney says Mingo died after medical providers failed to diagnose and treat Mingo's condition.
