Contrast clear in CdA council race

When Ron Edinger began serving on the Coeur d’Alene City Council, Adam Graves had not entered the world. Now the two – the 75-year-old with 40 years of incumbency and the 37-year-old businessman determined to modernize the city – are facing off for council seat 1. The race has been cast both as a battle over the future of McEuen Field and as one of looking to the future rather than being mired in the past. Read more

Huckleberries: Idaho duo tie the knot the rural-fashioned way

The bride was lovely. The groom was nervous. The wedding carriage was spit-shined – a new Kubota tractor upon which bride Libby Stockdale made her grand entrance to her wedding at the Western Pleasure Guest Ranch, 16 miles northeast of Sandpoint.
