5:22 p.m., Erin Daniels has responded to a question from Cameraman re: her replacement at Sandpoint High’s Cedar Post: “I’m told Ms. Corinne Flowers, another CP graduate of 1990, and also a former editor of the UI’s Argonaut. She was a student of grandpa’s, too. The tradition goes on …”
2:43 p.m., It’s official. Erin Daniels, the former Sandpoint High Cedar Post adviser, is on the SR staff. Editor Steve Smith introduced her today: “Erin will coordinate our new high school journalism initiative which aims to produce a monthly newspaper for area high school students beginning later this year. It is the old Our Gen on steroids.”
1:59 p.m., “Wow, two references to my dad, Tom Moore, in the last couple days. It’s nice to see an honest and fair elected official get some credit, in a time when virtually all we hear are negative comments. Even though I haven’t lived in the area since I joined the Air Force in 1983 (and since retired), I still have other family there and check your blog a couple times a day to keep up with what’s going on back home” — Don Moore/Calhan, Colorado
1:38 p.m., Quotable Quote re: Julyamsh crowd (via Jesse Tinsley): “About two years ago, on a Saturday night, we had about 970, 980 dancers, in regalia, out there (at Julyamsh). The last time there were that many Indians here, in regalia, was Steptoe’s war. There were about a thousand warriors there, you know” — Cliff SiJohn. BTW, check out Jesse Tinsley’s cool Julyamsh slide show on Video Journal here.
11:07 a.m., In an Editorial Board conversation about the proposed Chateau de Loire subdivision on Beauty Bay, Editor Steve Smith wondered aloud if a moratorium was possible … on awful-sounding French names for Lake Coeur d’Alene developments.
10:08 a.m., “Thanks for the nice note in your blog. Ric loves his job with Lookout Mountain. I’m thrilled with my new position at PHD. It’s a real dream come true for me. I had hoped our work would convince county commissioners of the importance of communicating with the public they serve. Sadly, only Katie was a true believer, and she is on her way out. Commissioners today approved an immediate termination of contract with Taggart & Clarke, Effective Communication. Katie, though, is determined to keep the new County Connections cable TV show going. I wish her all the luck in the world. T&C is going into hibernation. How long that will last is anyone’s guess” — Cynthia Taggart.
