On her Facebook wall, Kerri Thoreson posts a photo of her mother, Alice Rankin, on her recent 80th birthday. Alice formerly wrote a gardening column for Huckleberries Online. Her late husband, Ron, of course, was well known for his fight against property taxes and two-term stint as a Kootenai County commissioner. The Rankins and I go way back. During my 9 years as a reporter, Ron provided several tips that led to major stories for me. I've been here so long, in fact, that I remember the fellow whom Ron replaced as head of the Kootenai County Property Owners Association: Rex Morehouse (who lived in Spirit Lake at the time).
