On her Idaho Scenic Images Facebook page, Linda Lantzy offers this photo of sun & fog along the Centennial Trail. I’d guess that it was taken on the trail east of Coeur d’Alene. BTW, Linda is now selling calendars & Christmas cards featuring her North Idaho Scenics.

“This young bull moose made short work of the flowers in front of a
Pinewood Drive home in Post Falls on Tuesday evening,” posts Kerri Thoreson/More Main Street. “On Labor Day he
visited the backyard of Cliff and Jeanne Hayes several blocks to the
west for brunch. Since swimming across the Spokane River on Friday and
enjoying the hospitality of the Riverside Harbor neighborhood over the
weekend, he seems to be making himself quite at home.” More here.

“Hi, I’m John Mellencamp.” Yes you are. As many of you know, dear readers, the Lovely Family spent last night in musical heaven when we attended the Bob Dylan/John Mellencamp concert at Greyhound Park in Post Falls. Now, in the interest of full disclosure, your’s truly is not a huge Bob Dylan fan. To me the entry to “Rainy Day Women # 12 and 35” sounds like something out of a bad dream involving a Stephen King novel, a circus clown, a bloody knife and … well, you get the picture. Mellencamp, on the other hand. Him. I. Love/Blogmistress, ilovecda.com. More here (beware: language).

Ah, the personnel policies of KREM-2. At least in the case of Nadine Woodward (pictured), KREM-2 TV she was allowed to give the viewers a bit of notification that she was moving on. However, in the case of Jason Kadah, last week he was there and the today he is gone. I spoke with KREM-2’s staff this morning and confirmed what I suspected since last week. Morning Meteorologist Jason Kadah is gone. No reason is given; just that he will no longer be broadcasting his odd brand of humor mixed with weather in the morning on KREM any longer/David Laird, Community Comment. More here. You can get an idea of Kadah’s offbeat humor with this YouTube video here.

“My dad and I spent most of yesterday planting potato seed in the family garden,” posts Sunny/Bent’s Beer Garden. “We utilized the potato planting tools that were passed down from both of my grandpas. They still work like a charm…..the only problem was that the newly tilled soil still has a lot of sod pieces in it.” More here.
