Jeff Selle, one of Huckleberries own, is returning to the journalism game, after years of wandering in the public relations wilderness. Jeff will rejoin the Coeur d'Alene Press. I first met Jeff years ago when he was pounding the Post Falls beat for the Press. Good reporter. Many of you know that he's also a superb BBQ cook. Jeff let his Facebook friends know about his transition in a post Tuesday: “I know this may shock a few of you, but before you hear it from someone else, I took a job reporting again at the Coeur d'Alene Press. However, I am going to continue catering and possibly some vending this year. I'm actually pretty excited to jump back into the game, so watch out North Idaho.”
DFO: Please join me in a big salute to our back-to-the-future local journalist.
Bogus. That’s the word Jeff Selle, of Post Falls, uses for that $175 citation issued by a Spokane County health inspector to Riverside High mom Mary Beth Conklin for a fundraising tailgater. Selle? He’s a top regional barbecuer, handling the tongs for Bent BBQ at several North Idaho events, including the third annual St. Vincent de Paul Steak Fry this summer. Specifically, Jeff tells Huckleberries: “In Idaho you can cook a charity fundraiser without having to purchase a permit, at all. And, if you are vending or catering for profit, you only pay $80 for a yearlong permit.” Spokane charges $480 for a permit, whether charitable or not. Again, Jeff: “The fee is supposed to cover the cost of inspection. You can’t tell me it costs $480 to inspect one of these events. It takes all of 15 minutes to check the wash stations, hot-holding and cold-holding system. I know because I have been inspected several times”/DFO, SR Huckleberries. More here.
