Huckleberries Best of the Northwest

Nez Perce descendant and Interpretive Ranger Kevin Peters of the Nez Perce National Historic Park gave a tour of the museum at the park near Lapwai on Thursday. The park will be one of the attractions to The Summer of Peace Among the Nimiipuu(cq), the Lewis and Clark Bicentennial in Lewiston June 14-17 here. KATHY PLONKA The Spokesman-Review

Eye On Boise: Lively 1st Congressional District debate brings out the barbs here.

1. David Horsey/Seattle PI mulls the secrets behind the … drum roll, puh-leez … “Dick Cheney Code” here.

2. The Washington State Patrol has agreed to pay almost $2 million to nine women who were groped by a state trooper who’d pulled many of them over for drunken-driving arrests here.

3. A mudslide that gushed through a 24-unit condominium at Schweitzer Mountain near Sandpoint on Wednesday might have damaged the structure beyond repair here.

4. Idaho Gov. Dirk Kempthorne, the nominee for U.S. Secretary of the Interior, has moved out of his Statehouse office, and he does not plan to come back for state business here.

5. Luke Trerice, 28, a merry prankster from Olympia, Wash., who encased a friend’s room in aluminum foil, knew it was only a matter of time until he was paid back. He was right. You can find what happened to him in return here.

6. IMHO-NW: Erik Lindbergh/Seattle Times (Lindbergh’s higher calling), Randy Stapilus/Ridenbaugh Press (Tom Luna: The missing years), Joel Connelly/Seattle PI (Vanishing Northwest salmon), Brian Murphy/Idaho Statesman (Stevens rides into retirement again), and John Blanchette/Spokesman-Review (Emtman paid highest compliment).

Online Poll: 44.8% of 1136 respondents to an Idaho Statesman poll say they plan to see “The DaVinci Code.”

*Water’s rising in eastern Washington here.

*4 indicted in ecoterrorist attacks on Vail, Colo., ski resort here.

*Washington state foster parents are the first in the nation to join a labor union here.

Orbusmax Special: Trashed letter may provide clue to motive in one of Seattle’s worst mass murders here.
