Inside Huckleberries — 12/6/06

*Dick Haugen’s non-company e-mail address:

*HBO — to Dick Haugen: Dick, your fans our here would like you to post a non-KXLY e-mail so they can get ahold of you. One wants to give you an “electronic high-five.”

*If you heard all that scanner traffic about the local gendarmes stopping a train on the Rathdrum Prairie, don’t worry. Seems someone reported to the authorities that a train car was trailing a moving train across the prairie. The cops stopped the train and helped reunite it with its maverick car.

*Commenter Mike writes: Here is a letter I wrote way back in March 2006. Here is a letter from Jerry Weaver who happens to be a retired Sheriffs Officer and Court bailiff. And of course your wonderful editorial this weekend. What is it going to take Dave to get rid of these un-ethical individuals that are destroying our community?

*Ken Paulman, former HBO blogmeister and now the SR features editors sends this SOS: “We just got word today that daily syndication of the comic strip “Fox Trot” ceases at the end of the month (the strip will still run on Sundays). The artist, Bill Amend, is scaling back production after drawing the strip for nearly 20 years. That means we need to come up with a replacement. Anyone got any suggestions?”

*For those keeping score at home, Kootenai County has dug its heels in again re: our request for more e-mails from the prosecutor’s office and is challenging us to sue for them. Seems they’re more interested in protecting the back sides of public employees who’ve abused e-mail privileges than they are at getting to the truth.
