Hot Potatoes (HBO’s Take on Local News) 1/19/07

*Another snow storm on the way this evening, overnight/Spokesman-Review — OK, where’s that clown who was singing a month ago: “Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow”?’

*Idahoans advance on ‘American Idol’/Heather Lalley, Spokesman-Review — Will those of you who can get Fox 28 (no thanks to Time Warner and KAYU-TV) let the rest of us know how this turns out?

*Make Idaho ‘English only’ state, poll says: Residents also cite health insurance, growth as important/Betsy Russell, Spokesman-Review — Much ado about nothing.

*French criticizes Hession’s use of PR firm: Relationship ‘doesn’t pass the sniff test’/Mike Prager, Spokesman-Review — French’s right here. But he has a lot of room to talk. He was involved in that flap three years ago in which got-rocks homeowner Tom Hamilton unilaterally dredged the Spokane River to provide a bigger docking space for his boat.

*Housing 2006: Sales down, prices up: North Idaho real estate market continues to ‘adjust’/Bill Buley, Coeur d’Alene Press — The good news is that you’re house is worth more. The bad news? You can’t sell it.
