Armon Appointed To LCDC Board

The Lake City Development Corporation’s board of commissioners this week welcomed its newest member to the nine-member panel. Mic Armon, a certified financial advisor who served as a North Idaho College trustee for 12 years, was appointed to the volunteer board during the LCDC’s regular monthly meeting on Wednesday. “I’ve always dedicated myself to community service and believe the LCDC has tremendous potential to continue the great impact it is having in Coeur d’Alene,” Armon said. “I look forward to contributing to all the great things the LCDC does.” Armon was appointed to fulfill an existing 5-year commissioner term. He replaces Jim Elder, who served until his untimely death from cancer earlier this year/Keith Erickson, LCDC.

Question: I think Mic's appointment to the LCDC board is a good one. How about you?

Bar Manager Buys Cricket’s

For Jim Elder, it was time to pass the torch. The Fernan Lake Village mayor, volunteer, land donor, business owner, and board member finalized a deal to sell Cricket’s Downtown Bar and Grill on Friday, passing the Sherman Avenue fixture he has owned since 1985 to one-time dishwasher turned bar manager Rico Ciccone. So for Ciccone, 34, that means he has big shoes to fill. He knows that. He won’t change much/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: What do you like best re: the way Cricket's is run now?
