Inside Huckleberries — 1/26/07

*Pecky Cox/As The Lake Churns sends along a poignant YouTube video, “Children See, Children Do,” here.

*Jerry Jaeger’s secretary just called with details of the memorial service for shoeshiner Kenny Young. The memorial is Wednesday (Jan. 31) at 11 a.m. in Bays 1 and 2 of the Coeur d’Alene Resort. The public is welcome to attend.

*A Berry Picker forwarded this mass e-mailing circulated by attorney Duane Rasmussen: “I thought you might be interested in this legislation being promoted by Idaho State Representative Clark and Idaho State Senator Jorgenson in an attempt to deal with Urban Renewal Districts and Urban Renewal Agencies. Rasmussen then provided links (H0047, to elect the URA board) here and (H0048, to restrict modification of URDs) here.

*Put your hands together for political cartoonist Noah Kroese (Cruz-ah), an HBO regular, who published his first ‘toon today on the SR editorial page — of Spokane Mayor Dennis Hession skating around transparency.

*Vote for Nate: Colleague Meghann Cuniff has a former UOregon friend in the running for a Jay Leno contest. Meghann e-mails: “A guy I know from college was on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno last Friday. The show is doing some ‘Who Wants to Be A Tonight Show Correspondent? You DO!’ contest-thing where they asked viewers to send in their best correspondent video. Nate Jackson, a guy who was at the UO Journalism School the same time as me, made it as one of the top picks. Voting is going on right now. Maybe you can tell your bloggers to check the clip and vote for Nate. He’s the last video on the list, Nate Jackson from Venice Beach. Vote for Nate by clicking here.

*Q&A: Question (from Mike): Is Rick Baughman still on paid leave and have your heard anything in regard to the investigation? Answer: Yes, Baughman’s still on paid leave, collecting his $74,000-plus per year salary and bennies. And there’s nothing new as of Thursday when our Dynamic Duo, Taryn and Erica, last checked.
