In brief: Kellogg author to speak at library

From Local Reports
 

COEUR D’ALENE – Julie Whitesel Weston, author of “The Good Times Are All Gone Now,” will be at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library, 702 E. Front Ave., on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Weston, who grew up in Kellogg, will share stories of the Kellogg community, told to her over several years, along with her own story. The people, mining history and her adolescence weave together against a background of the Cold War, post-McCarthyism and labor strife.

The free program is offered as part of the Your Place in History Series sponsored by area public libraries, the Molstead Library at North Idaho College, and the Museum of North Idaho. The presentation is funded in part by a grant from the Friends of the Coeur d’Alene Public Library.

Flood ordinance meeting April 13

POST FALLS – The Post Falls Planning and Zoning Commission will hold a public hearing at Post Falls City Hall, 408 Spokane St., on April 13 at 6 p.m. to repeal and replace the City’s Flood Damage Prevention Ordinance.

The city is required to adopt the new study and maps, which will go into effect on May 3, in order to avoid being dropped from the flood insurance program.
