In responding to an issue raised by DeePee re: Idaho going back to Mountain Standard/Daylight Time, Lew2nl asks whether we live in North Idaho or northern Idaho. We haven't discussed this issue for awhile, so I'll post it out here with this caveat: The Lewiston Tribune (where I worked from 1982-84) labels the 10 northernmost Idaho counties "northern Idaho." The SR calls the 5 northernmost counties "North Idaho." Politicians from Boise, like Gov. Butch Otter, refers to the Panhandle as "northern Idaho." And I've always called the southern counties "Sufferin' Idaho" because they don't have the beauty of North Idaho.
Question: So what do you call the 5 northernmost Idaho counties?
