They say that when God closes a door, he opens a window. Well, when Jerry Jensen closes a Subway, which is unusual, he opens another - and likely another and another. The owner of six Subways in Coeur d'Alene and Hayden sat inside his newest store on Seventh and Sherman that opened Monday. “Obviously in the summertime we're going to get a ton more traffic, and that's a big thing,” he said. The 1,700-square-foot store is in a prime location to continue drawing big weekday lunch crowds, as well as increasing customer count for dinners and weekends. “I think that really was the driving force behind this,” Jensen said/Bill Buley, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: This is the site of the old Senor Froggy's, right? Is that a good location for a Subway?
Jared Fogle, the man who famously lost weight with exercise and Subway sandwiches, spends about 100 days per year traveling to elementary schools around the country to deliver his message about being healthy. “Since the kids know me from TV, hopefully the message will have a little more meaning to them,” said Fogle, who began gaining excessive weight in third grade. On Wednesday, the 34-year-old spoke at Spokane’s Holmes Elementary School. Story here. (SR photo: Christopher Anderson) And: KHQ video link to interview with Jared here.
Question: Does Subway spokesman Jared Fogle inspire/deflate you?
I thought I was being so good, so healthful. So proud of myself for sticking to my diet plan, even sacrificing yummy Monterey Cheddar bread for a sensible nine-grain wheat and opting for light mayo. Anyway, I’d always thought of tuna as weight-loss-in-a-can, touted by obsessive bodybuilders as a protein-rich miracle food that can help achieve maximum muscle hypertrophy and give you that fetching Lou Ferrigno glow. At least it felt like a step in the right direction away from the Baconator blues. Au contraire, for my research reveals that a juicy Wendy’s Baconator burger weighs in lightly at a mere 830 calories, with 51 grams of fat. A foot-long Subway tuna with cheese and all the fixings and extra banana peppers waddles in at 1,060 calories, with a fat count of 62 grams. 62 grams of fat sounds like a heck of a lot to me, especially when I think of it in raw form, jiggling away like flan on a silver tray in the liposuctionist’s office/OrangeTV, Get Out! North Idaho. More here.
Question: Chicken teriyaki is my favorite Subway sandwich. What’s yours?
