Huckleberries Hears No. 2 …

… That Councilman MikeK has another little mouth to feed. And baby Ronan (pronounced Ro-nen) James makes 7. Ron — who joines Will 13, Nora 11, Maggie 9, Max 6, Quinn 3, and Jack, who turns 2 Jan. 30 — arrived at 8 pounds 5 ounces and 20.5 inchjes long at 3:22 p.m. Saturday. Of consequence, Mike told Huckleberries, Ronan’s head is 14.5 inches in circumference, which made for a long delivery. Mike said he’s trying to increase the population of Demos in North Idaho. But his wife’s independence could undercut his quest. At the swearing in ceremony for new Prosecutor Barry McHugh this morning, Mike told Barry that his large family is a result of two things — old-fashioned Catholicism and whisky. Dead-panned Barry in return: “You should tell your wife to quit drinking.”
