RSPA: Nicknames That Befit INW Towns

I loved Idawa’s post on Bellingham’s nickname “The city of subdued excitement” I wondered what some similar nicknames for our local cities/towns would be:

*Spokane - The city of interesting public/private partnerships
*Coeur D’Alene - The city of a lake with many bays
*Rathdrum - The city of old satanic rumors
*Athol - The city of digestive system allusions
*Seattle - The city of stoic materialism
*Moses Lake - The city of confusing aromas
*Ritzville - The city of interstate highway speed compliance
*Sandpoint - The city where tradition meets innovation for long afternoon naps
*Spirit Lake - The city of semi-rural densities creating chemistry
