SPOKANE, Wash. — Local leaders and organizations are responding to Dr. Bob Lutz’s abrupt departure from the Spokane Regional Health District.Administrative Officer Amelia Clark said Lutz is no longer serving as the county’s health officer, but has repeatedly refused to comment on whether he was terminated or resigned on his own.
During a press conference, Clark and public information officer Kelli Hawkins said they could not comment on the situation, citing “personnel” matters.

The reason behind Lutz’s departure remains unknown, but many people were quick to comment on the situation.
Mayor Nadine Woodward released the following statement:
“Dr. Lutz has faced an extremely tough challenge over an extended time and gave everything he had to the community. Spokane and the state were the first to take the national stage in February. We have been learning about the virus as we go and those long months since have left our region anxious, tired, and frustrated that we are not progressing as fast as everyone had hoped. This is a community health and economic emergency and it takes partnership and community to solve it; we will rally together as Spokane always does. Please continue to put your loved ones, …

This Northern Trust business has lost its luster

this northern trust business has lost its luster

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Northern Trust is worried about COVID’s effects on its business like all other banks, but it has an additional concern most of them don’t. The monied institutional clients Chicago’s largest locally headquartered bank built a costly global platform to serve aren’t paying like they once did for the work, leaving analysts wondering about the value of a Northern linchpin that for decades was an unquestioned triumph.
Northern is one of three banks that dominate the business of holding and processing trillions of assets for the world’s largest institutional investors. The fees Northern is paid for custody and fund administration accounted for 40 percent of the bank’s $3.86 billion in fees last year.
But, in what one analyst dubbed “the world’s worst oligopoly” a few years ago, the fees Northern and its trust-bank peers, Boston-based State Street and New York-based Bank of New York Mellon, are paid for the service aren’t coming close to keeping pace with the growth in the assets the companies are husbanding.
It’s one reason Northern’s stock price is down 27 percent this year despite a relatively small lending operation that makes it less vulnerable to the potential COVID-related collapse of business borrowers than commercial banks. Northern isn’t alone; State …

What COVID-hit businesses need from our leaders now

what covid-hit businesses need from our leaders now

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Let’s start with the things everyone should be able to agree on. First, we all want life to get back to normal—or as close as it can ever be to normal again in a world where COVID-19 exists. Second, we all want the economy to fully recover, and quickly. The third thing—well, unfortunately, this one has become contentious, but it really shouldn’t be: We won’t get Items 1 and 2 on our wish list if we don’t get the virus under control first.
“Under control” doesn’t necessarily mean eradication of COVID-19. Sadly, we’re going to be living with this coronavirus in some form for years to come, and, even if we’re lucky, living with it may require yearly vaccinations or other sorts of remediation measures for some time. No, “under control” in the long run means achieving immunity through mass vaccinations—and until that’s possible, it also means quicker, easier and cheaper testing, well-funded contact tracing efforts that lead to more effective quarantining, plus mask-wearing, social distancing and, difficult as it may be, limits on the kinds of gatherings that fuel the spread of the disease.
This last piece of the puzzle—limits on gatherings—has dealt a body blow …
