*Larkin foresees big population jump: Sees Post Falls population at 68,000 by 2028/Becky Kramer, Spokesman-Review — Any guesses re: how much open space will be left on the Rathdrum Prairie?

*Construction worker dies in drilling accident: Victim’s identity not released/Keith Kinnaird, Hagadone News Network — Add to this story one from the Seattle accident re: a worker being killed in an industrial shredder, and you realize how dangerous construction/industrial work can be.

*Post Falls OKs new city hall: Higher costs force cutback in planned energy efficiency/Meghann Cuniff, Spokesman-Review — Post Falls’d better break ground before spiraling costs make the new City Hall too prohibitive to build.
