Best of the Local Blogs — 1/5/06

CDA’s Phil Corless (aka Family Phil) has become one of the best bloggers in North Idaho. After taking a break from his blog for the holidays, he has returned this week in style by posting a list of his 2005 “bests,” including favorite kid quote, favorite second best job, and favorite photos. You can treat yourself by clicking here.

*In News Is A Conversation, my Editor Steve Smith responds to criticism from Marianne Love/Slight Detour about the media’s embarrassing bad call on the West Virginia mining disaster here.

*What’s this? CDADave/Thin Air has kept that resolution re: joining a health club? Click here.

*JBelle/Notes from The ‘Kan EWA introduces her to her Chow Nation here and provides a “best of” list from her recent visit to Lac Louise, Canada, here.

*Oops. Missed this one on vacation — Jesse Tinsley/Video Journal provides a narrative for his photography re: the last day of the old IFI/Stimson mill here.

*For good reason, Side Note, over on the west side of the Cascades, enjoys reading the SR blog by Courtney Dunham/All We Never Knew for good reason. It’s frank. Entertaining. And provides insights into how twentysomethings view the world. Today, Courtney discusses “open relationship” and a 27-year-old guy who’s in one but tries to hide as much as he can here.

Also: Bayview Herb announces his ‘un-retirement” here, Cis introduces us to some women who played big roles in Idaho’s past here, and Marianne reminisces with other former Sandpoint High teachers at a funeral for a mutual friend here.
