Hot Potatoes — 1/30/07

*Bus scare a mistake: “Call Police” alert shakes up early-morning Spokane commute/Amy Cannata, Spokesman-Review — Better safe than sorry, right? But the Spokane Transit System should be careful about its false alarms. (See: “Little Boy Who Cried Wolf”)

*Local students mourn suicides: Coeur d’Alene High student found Thursday, Lake City High student found Sunday/Marc Stewart, Coeur d’Alene Press — With so much to live for …

*Man sues over dock request: Sanders Beach homeowner says city wrong to object, state wrong to reject/Erica Curless, Spokesman-Review — And Jerry Frank’s the guy who wants claimed he was open to some kind of settlement with the city. Seems he has money to burn. Kudos to the Idaho Department of Lands for slam-dunking his dangerous plan to put a boat dock in the middle of a swim area.

*Charter school grows up: Popularity brings new pressures on CdA academy/Meghann M. Cuniff, Spokesman-Review — All the Coeur d’Alene Charter School backers of yesteryear have the right to say: We told you so.

*Capitol Commission mulling underground “wings” compromise between Otter, legislative leaders this morning/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise — Do it right, and damn the costs. The Idaho Legislature and Cowboy Butch could be cramping future Legislatures by cutting too many corners. Dunno much about the plan. But I hope the legislators are looking down the road at future space needs.
