Best of the Local Blogs — 1/17/06

After serving in Vietnam, St. Maries resident and retired Marine Corps master sergeant Frank Werner was made the game warden at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, where he learned from local residents to carve the wooden decoys he still uses on waterfowl hunts in northern Idaho. (Another terrific shot by Ralph Bardholdt/Skookum Features and editor of the St. Maries Gazette-Record)

*Mari & CJ, The Golly Gals, visit the Spokane Valley Hooters — and have photos to prove it here.

*Stebbijo/Your Choice has an interesting post today re: words that have been hijacked to mean something else (pot, gay, liberal tipper, etc.), and she wonders if you have some nominees here.

*For as long as he can remember, Bill McCrory/Whitecaps sez the US has been at war with some other country or something. He provides a link to enable you to decide if we’re really at war or only AUMF here.

*MikeK (who unfortunately has been posting less and less since he got that gig at City Hall)/The Idaho Kennedys posts Democrat Minority Leader Wendy Jaquet’s view of the first week of the Idaho Legislature here.

*Marianne Love/Slight Detour laments that she missed her chance to cash in on lakefront property, now that the small Lake Love Begone has receded from her house here.

Also: Erin/Idaho Native wonders when a “newborn” becomes an “infant” here, Granati/Orange Frog sees life as one big playground here, and Bre/To Blog Or Not To Blog is counting down to the Super Bowl here.
