Peanut Gallery (CdA library)

Phil (Corless), I am really quite aware that cars are the mode of transportation. However, no matter how badly we need this library (and in my view, I agree that it is time to upgrade our old facility) we need to be smart about the future. The same could be said for a community center in Coeur d' Alene. The former mayor was so much in a hurry to add a community center to his resume of accomplishments that the plan was full of half truths and inconsistencies. As a result, the voters got discouraged with the whole thing and turned it down. We still are without a much needed community center that could have been up and running many years ago with proper planning and addressing the issues questioned by the residents. It was politics again and everyone lost.
