... that City Attorney Mike Gridley and his teen daughter, Kathryn, will be traveling to Vietnam this week, to bike from Saigon to Hanoi. The trip will last from Thursday until Jan. 4. Nah, Mike didn't serve in Vietnam. He graduated from high school in 1974 and was signed up for the draft when he war ended. For those keeping score at home, Mike biked across country in 2001, from Gig Harbor, Wash., to Bar Harbor, Maine. His daughter joined him for the trip in Coeur d'Alene.
