Morning Headlines — 9/8/05

*Loaded trucks headed South: North Idaho officers bringing goods to Katrina victims/Susan Drumheller, Spokesman-Review: One word: Saaalute.

*Northwest Coeur d’Alene is fast growing: Residential and high-density buildings are going/Nils Rosdahl, Spokesman-Review — Gee, just what we need — more housing to attract more residents to demand more services to clog more streets, to jam our waterfront, etc. Mebbe we should jail developers.

*North Idaho officials pass multimillion budgets: Post Falls, CdA, Kootenai County raise budgets in separate meetings/Spokesman-Review — The reason few people speak at budget meetings staged by local government is that they’re seldom heard. The angry property taxpayers on the courthouse steps of Kootenai and Bonner counties are a better indication of what residents feel about budget increase.

*NIC Popcorn Forum begins tonight: Event focuses on efforts to make communities safe from sex offenders/Coeur d’Alene Press — Another worthy Popcorn Forum staged by NIC instructor extraordinaire Tony Stewart.

*Whitworth prof not protected by tenure, jurors conclude: Jury apparently agreed that Tony Mega received ‘more than enough fairness’/John Craig, Spokesman-Review — Sometimes, I wonder if tenured college professors have any idea of what it’s like to work in the real world where you can lose your job any time the company decides to down-size?
