Hot Potatoes — 1/25/07

*Spokane called a great place for kids/Spokesman-Review — Anyone see how the Idaho towns did? Even if Coeur d’Alene/Post Falls isn’t ranked, I’d still prefer to live out here.

*This is just what we don’t need: another classification/Greg Lee, Spokesman-Review — Greg’s right. Send this one back to the drawing board.

*Staying calm helped 2 North Idaho snowmobilers stay alive/Rich Landers, Spokesman-Review — And you thought you were cold when the temperature dropped below zero earlier this month?

*Getting their fill: Kroc Center on-site material better than expected; geotechnicians still examining how much work needs to be done to fill hole/Tom Greene, Coeur d’Alene Press — Another example of how your local urban renewal district is making things happen in this community. ;-)

*Show honors missing man: Moscow city councilman loved the Sirius Idaho Theatre/Shawn Vestal, Spokesman-Review — I feel sorry for the friends and loved ones who have to deal with the uncertainty surrounding the councilman’s disappearance. But this is a very nice gesture.

*Firefighter has record of deadly driving: Man now involved in triple-fatal crash/Jody Lawrence-Turner, Spokesman-Review — Seems the three strikes policy applies to this guy. Three crashes involving fatalities … and he’s kicked off the fire department for good. Still one to go.
