Best of the Local Blogs — 1/6/06

CDADave provides this vintage photo from 1907 of the docking area in Coeur d’Alene. Also, he has some words to say about taxes after finding a CDA tax receipt from Christmas time 1910 here.

*Betsy Russell/Eye On Boise reports that the Idaho Transportation Dept. has reviewed the bid award for overseeing the massive highway construction project ahead — and once again the Boise-based Washington Group International came out on top here.

*As the father of a second-grader, Family Phil has poignant thoughts about local news that a second-grader has been booted from school indefinitely for saying he had a gun when he didn’t here.

*Mari Meehan/Dogwalk Musings provides a great map (courtesy of the Washington Post) and some thoughts about the Jack Abramoff scandal that has sucked in some of the region’s congressmen here.

*Bill McCrory/Whitecaps provides a link to a memo that will help you decide for yourself if the president had the authority to order wiretaps to fight terrorism here.

*Chris/Digital Fog provides an interesting video post, entitled “The World According to America” here.

Also: Cis empathizes with housing contractors here, Granati recalls time spent in India last year here, and Marianne sez there’s good bread in Clark Fork here.
