Just in case your geographic location on your vacation keeps you from having access to the area newspapers, I'd like to cite a Daily Bee classic today. It's on page 11 in the sports section. The headline for the 10-12-inch story reads "Cougars looking for first win over Washington Huskies in seven tries."

First line: Think the Apple Cup is a joke?" The story goes on to tell about what's at stake with Saturday's Apple Cup, including the Washington Huskies hope for a victory as "a parting gift for their coach Keith Gilbertson who has resigned." My son, the Newport Miner reporter and sports editor, asked, "Is it just me, or is there something wrong here?"

Good space filler but we wonder how month-old stories get accidentally stuck among the columns of our local blat. Do the folks at Hagaville know that Washington now has a new football coach? Maybe we should tell them.

Hope your vacation is going well.

By the way, you must not have noticed the carefully place item in my poorly updated blog stating that another Hagadone is starting a new newspaper, and he ain't related to Duane. The Sandpoint Reader will hit the streets between Coeur d'Alene and Bonners Ferry next week.

Editors/publishers are Chris DeCleur and Zach Hagadone, both Albertson College graduates. Zach's grandfather owned Sandpoint Furniture for years. Interestingly, enough Zach sold ads for the Daily Bee for a while and decided he needed to go a different direction.

DFO: Great report from the north country of Bonner County. Pleaz tell Zach and Chris to get me a copy of their paper. And, O My Readers, don't forget to check out Marianne Love's blog, Slight Detour, here.
