Parting Shot: Swinging around

I get dizzy just looking at this photo Duane Rasmussen shot at the Kootenai County Fair.

Are you a “ride” person? If so, what's your favorite Fair or Amusement Park ride?

FHB: Fair Rides a bust

Frum Helen Back on Scene From The Fair on August 23 at 10:42 a.m.

Took the grandkids to the fair on opening day. Kids look forward to the carnival. They may not anymore however. Finally at 2:30, instead of noon, four rides were going. By 5 o’clock there were three more. None of the kiddie rides were going. Hopefully the fair officials don’t let this company come back anymore.

Another berrypicker reports seeing officials examining an “electrical pole” and wonders if there's some kind of electrical problem at the Fairgrounds that caused the rides to be shut down.

Have you been to the Fair yet? Where the rides operational?

DOTC Meets Friends, McCrory @ Fair

Dan of the County: To follow up on the original post, I had several friendly folks including Republicans stop by the D’s booth and visit yesterday. Tom Malzahn was working his booth during the same time and we both went to each other’s “territory” to say hello. I even had Bill McCrory stop and take my picture! Although I did jokingly tell him that I wondered if he should read me my Miranda rights before he took my picture … All in all a good time and good company, I’ll be out there again most of the afternoon and evening.

Question: Do you think the Kootenai County clerk’s race between Democrat DanOTC and Republican Cliff Hayes will be the nastiest one locally?
