Hot Potatoes — 1/29/07

*Hand in hand: City, skate event partnership ends in a glorious whirl/Jeff Bunch, Spokesman-Review -- Key paragraph: "Spokane is now the only city simultaneously to hold the ticket sales record for Skate America and nationals (154,893 tickets sold)." I know you Coeur d'Alene Firsters hate to admit it, But Spokaloo pulled off a heckuva feat by bringing the national figure skating championships to the region -- and the region responded. Saaalute.

*It's "Idaho Film Day" in the Capitol: "Gilligan Island's" MaryAnn (Dawn Wells) on hand to push for incentives/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise -- I always liked MaryAnn better than Ginger. Mebbe it was a harbinger of future things. We both ended up Idahoans.

*Spokesman-Review carrier's friend beaten, seriously injured, while delivering newspaper this morning/Spokesman-Review -- The creatures of the night add danger to those who put your daily newspaper on your door step.

*Senator tries to stuff tax loophole: Brad Little wants Cabela's to pay its 6 percent, too/Betsy Russell, Spokesman-Review -- So, Cabela's honeymoon is over already?

*An open letter and aching heart: Our loss is North Bend's gain/Coeur d'Alene Press editorial -- The editorial is a bit schmaltzy. But the sentiment is good. The Kraliceks will be missed.
