Diamond Cup Brings Sheriff’s Alert

As the Diamond Cup Hydroplane races near, the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office would like to alert the public to waterways hazards and potential traffic congestion. For the past few days, event organizers have been setting the race course on Lake Coeur d’Alene, near the Silver Beach area. From now through the Labor Day weekend, numerous course buoys and log booms will be moved into the area for the races. Boaters are encouraged to use extreme caution when traversing the area around the course. Additionally, beginning Thursday morning August 29, Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive from Potlatch Hill Rd to just west of Sunnyside Rd will be reduced to one lane of travel with traffic flaggers at each end. Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive will remain one lane through the weekend. The Centennial Trail will also remain open, but will be diverted next to the single lane of vehicular traffic/Lt. Stu Miller, Kootenai County Sheriff's Office. More here.

Question: Do you expect the renewal of the Diamond Cup hydroplane races to go smoothly?

Caution: Red Meat Is Health Hazard

Want to live longer? Trade some of the red meat in your diet for fish, nuts, whole grains, and other healthier protein sources, Harvard researchers say. That's the conclusion of a new study, published this week in the Archives of Internal Medicine, that found that the risk of dying at an early age — from heart disease, cancer, or any other cause—rises in step with red-meat consumption. Eating too much red meat, which is high in saturated fat and cholesterol, has long been seen as unhealthy, especially for the heart. The new study, however, is the first to estimate the effect of swapping out red meat on a person's lifespan/ More here. (AP file photo for illustration purposes)
