Inside Huckleberries — 1/17/07

*Huckleberries hears that … three prominent North Idaho men are in the running to replace John McHugh as the regional representative on the Idaho Transportation Board: Bonners Ferry Mayor Darrell Kerby, former state senator Dick Compton and former legislator Dean Haagenson.

*For those Time Warner/KAYU sufferers who still haven’t seen the hook-and-ladder TD, OT TD, and statue-of-liberty play that enabled Boise State to beat Oklahoma in the Fiesta Bowl, click here.

*MamaJD: “I used to try really hard to listen to the 6:00 am broadcast of KVNI. Once the local news was read, I would then get up. I would time getting children situated in front of the television with juice and cereal and then run back and jump into bed to listen to Dick Haugen. Now — I don’t care. The break between Dick and Brett (Bowers) was too long. Brett just doesn’t keep me interested and I end up comparing instead of listening. I really was willing to give the new format a try but I am don’t care anymore.”

*Sightem: “I ran into Dick Haugen, who spent more than a decade reporting for work in the wee hours of the morning. Now that he’s exploring other opportunities, there’s no need for getting up at the crack of dark-thirty. I asked if he’s staying up later now. In fact, Monday night he claimed he was up until the wild and crazy hour of 10 p.m. It’s all relative to this night owl” — Kerri Thoreson/Coeur d’Alene Press (“Main Street” column).

*Huckleberries hears that … Dave Walker, a former Coeur d’Alene councilman and downtown Coeur d’Alene booster, is also interested in that Post Falls chamber exec job — along with former KVNI-AM news director Dick Haugen. Former CDA/Post Falls Press reporter Jeff Selle’s name is also in the mix.
