Wanted: Progressive Thinkers — Huckleberries

With two legislators from the Post Falls area attacking Coeur d’Alene’s proposed education corridor, I wondered at Huckleberries Online last week whether other River City leaders were so shortsighted. After all, someone must be pulling Rep. Bob Nonini’s chain if he, as chairman of the House Education Committee, is actively lobbying for the DeArmond Mill site to be transformed into yet more condos for the well-heeled rather than expanded higher education chances for the region’s high school graduates, laid-off mill workers and single mothers, among others/D.F. Oliveria, SR Prairie Voice. More here

Other SR Prairie Voice stories today:
*Winning art work testament for girl’s love for brothers/Taryn Hecker
*Post Falls celebrates history/Taryn Hecker
*Lakeland junior Bookstruck dedicated to track/Patty Hutchens
*Bayview developer must tear down cafe, restore site/Taryn Hecker

DFO: A hard copy of the Prairie Voice can be picked up at a number of Post Falls and Coeur d’Alene businesses, which are listed here.
