Best of the Local Blogs — 3/6/06

My car knows by heart its way to and past this scene captured by photographer Kerri Thoreson — at the entrance to the Spokane International Airport. It’s easily the Spokane place I visit most.

Always check Betsy Russell’s Eye On Boise blog to see what’s going to be in the paper tomorrow morning here.

*”I’m thankful that Spokane Mayor Dennis Hession and County Prosecuting Attorney Steve Tucker are lawyers,” begins Bill McCrory/Whitecaps in his latest blog entry re: the Spokane firefighter sex flap. “If they didn’t have lawyers in these key elected positions, Spokanites might rely on their own common sense.” Bill gives ‘em heck here.

*JBelle/The ‘Kan EWA pens a think peace re: how a strong will can be both a blessing and a curse in a dyne-oh!-mite reflective piece here.

*If you add 312 and 7000 together, you’ll have the number of posts and blurkers Cis Gors has attracted in the past year as she celebrates the one-year anniversay of her blog, From A Simple Mind, here. Congrats, Cis.

*The Golly Gals take their camera and pen to the Kynrede Cafe on Government Way to review the fare and enjoy the huckleberry dessert here.

*Greg Lee/Idaho Preps reports that Coeur d’Alene High basketballers Cody Smith and Nate Bligh won Inland Empire League honors today here and that the District 1 basketball all-star rosters are set for both boys and girls teams here.

HBO Page-View Numbers: record 177,405 PVs for February; record 9580 PVs for Monday, Feb. 27; record 52882 for week, Feb. 26-March 4.

Meanwhile, Granati and ErinG enjoy a milestone as their 5-year-old enjoys her first birthday party outside the family ones here, Marianne chooses between the Zags and the Oscars here, and CDADave struggles with big questions as his arthritis continues to act up here.
