It is now officially summer in Coeur d'Alene, which means Paul Bunyan Pak-Out on Northwest Boulevard can expect a high volume of residents and visitors who are in search of tasty, old-fashioned hamburgers and creamy, cold shakes. The iconic 25-foot Paul Bunyan statue has been greeting visitors and towering over his downtown kingdom since 1952. But it's not just the good old lumberjack people know and remember when they eat at the Bunyan. Manager Carla Harris (pictured) has been a familiar face at the restaurant for 31 years, making her a local celebrity. Born and raised in Kellogg, Harris began at the Bunyan when she was only 19. She has trained countless individuals through the years, so many that she can't even estimate. Just about everyone in Coeur d'Alene who has ever eaten at the Bunyan has met Harris or at least been a recipient of her handiwork/Devin Heilman, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
