John Q. Public: Here are news items I can remember CDA or North Idaho in the past 30 years that went international -- all negative. Course the AP loves themselves a horrible story, bolsters their ratings. Maybe in the future CDA can be known for a positive story.
- 1. All things AN/Butler.
- 2. Ruby Ridge.
- 3. The Order guy that lived in North Idaho (can't remember the name, I just remember he had red hair).
- 4. The Groen murders.
- 5. Duncan's trial and zaniness that followed.
- 6. KKK snowman
- 7. I think one of the hate crimes in 2011 went viral too.
I think that's it.
DFO: I can remember the Wallenberg Civic Award (for combating racism) presented at New York's City Hall in January 1987 that was covered by the national/international media. I was there. Also, the civil trial that bankrupted the Aryan Nations.
Question: Can you remember stories re: Coeur d'Alene/North Idaho that made national/international news in last 30 years?
