Best of the Local Blogs — 1/4/06

Before HBO formally introduces new blogger Toni Britton/Calico Girls of Sandpoint to you, how about a sample of her poetry, from a cat’s perspective here?

*Cis Gors/From A Simple Mind sounds off about car insurance companies after seeing her rates go up because (drum roll, puh-leez), she and the king of the house scored only 10 of 14 points necessary to have a perfect credit report. If you’re asking what a credit report has to do with car insurance, click here.

*Marianne Love/Slight Detour taught her Sandpoint journalism students to always try to get it right before it appeared in print; so, you can imagine her reaction to the inaccurate news last night when the media was reporting that 12 of 13 miners had survived the W.Va. mine blast here.

*In Video Journal, colleague Jesse Tinsley explains what went into taking that polar bear plunge shot at Lake Coeur d’Alene on New Year’s Day here.

*If you don’t think North Idaho has critical infrastructure, Bill McCrory/Whitecaps sez to think again here.

*You can find out about Mari Meehan and Carolyn Mills, the Grand Old Ladies Living Young (Golly Gals), our newest North Idaho blog, here (Mari) and here (Carolyn or “CJ”).

Also: *Amy/That’s Life, Life Goes On provides tips on how to start from scratch to become an eBay seller here, CDADave/Thin Air explains why blogging isn’t as easy as it looks here, and Stebbijo/Your Choice lists attainable resolutions here.
