HBO’s Best of the Local Blogs — 3/19/08

Kerri Thoreson/OnLocation North Idaho

The long awaited water features at the I-90 on-ramps at Spokane Street are just weeks away from completion, posts Kerri Thoreson, OnLocation North Idaho. Water will flow over the granite slabs in a three-diminsional welcome to Idaho’s River City. The town’s namesake falls are just a few blocks south of the freeway.

Pecky Cox’s countdown to spring

Just a few days ago, I was downtown Coeur d’Alene and looked at the sawmill and wondered how long it would be until it too turned into more Riverstone like property. Riverstone property once used to be the source of income for this area with a large lumber mill, as well. The headlines yesterday answered my question about the old mill, and the old way of life here in this area. I’ve known many people who have worked in these mills over the years, and now they have had to find a different way to make a living. Personally, I would rather have the mills than the hundreds of condos and all the pavement/concrete that line the riverfront now, making it so you can’t even see the waterway/Live, Love, Laugh, Hope.
