Huckleberries AM Headlines

*Kootenai County voters reject sales tax for jail expansion/Erica Curless, Spokesman-Review -- A lousy campaign highlighted by continual bashing from the Coeur d'Alene Press and Concerned Businesses of North Idaho -- and the measure still attracted 62%. Wonder what would have happened if the Fiddlers Three at the courthouse had persuaded Mike Kennedy & Co. to handle their publicity?

*Zags' Morrison voted preseason All-American: Junior forward becomes first GU basketball player to receive honor/Steve Bergum, Spokesman-Review -- Will he pull a Turiaf and stay for his senior year, too? Or will the lure of filthy lucre prompt Adam to skip his senior year next year? Inquiring minds want to know.

*McLaughlin, Verner, French win Spokane council seats/Spokesman-Review staff -- No Steve Corker. No Cherie Rodgers. And soon no Jim West. The three-ring circus at Spokane City Hall is about to fold its tent.

*Sandpoint City Council seats switched: Lockwood and Newton winners; Hayes joins Rathdrum council/Rasha Madkour, Spokesman-Review -- Helen Newton, the long-time Sandpoint city clerk, will not be a shrinking violet now that she has a microphone.

*Voters clear out the smoke: Indoor smoking gets overwhelming statewide support, while two medical malpractice initiatives are failing/Richard Roesler, Spokesman-Review -- A bit over the top, but second-hand smoke is annoying.
