*Trish Gannon, the chief cook and bottle washer of The River Journal, wonders if she's running fast enough on her media treadmill. Translation: She's flirting with the idea of publishing The River Journal weekly rather than every other week. And she wants your input about it here.

*Ex-CDA planner Steve Badraun is staying in Tulsa Okla., for the winter with his son and daughter in law for the winter. He told Huckleberries today: "I am looking at being a management consultant in a large garden center for several years. ... just time to put down a few roots again. I finished 8 months in the twin cities area running a garden center there. My work was completed in the consulting contract."

*Posts Cis: "Annie Love is to pictures. ... what her mother is to words. ... Anyone who has gone to her blog of pictures leaves in awe ... I think they should do a book together." You can view Annie's blog, All You Need Is Love, here. (Note to Self: See if Annie Love wants to become part of North Idaho/Friends blogrolls.)

*Huckleberries hears ... that Gozzer Ranch decided to change its license plates rather than ordering its drivers to change their ways. Translation: the Gozzer fleet has shed those GOZZER 1-9 license plates in favor of generic Kootenai County ones.

*From Daily Briefing Thursday: "A woman called to say thank you - She found blood on her house and learned what happened through Wednesday's Huckleberries entry.

*Marianne Love/Slight Detour is popping buttons this morning because her daughter, Annie Love/All You Need Is Love, won the month's Sandpoint in Pictures competition, sponsored by Sandpoint Online. Annie's shot (above) featured Marianne's horse, Miss Lilly. Brags Marianne: "Whenever the Spokesman-Review wants to call her up to take cute kid and purty scenery pictures, I'll tell her to give you a call."

*Debra Weland is trying to revive hubby Mike's Kootenai Valley Press online news site in Boundary County. In announcing the revival online, she writes: "I would like anyone to email me information on gardening, recipes, anything that interests us all. I will do my best to keep you updated with breaking news, road conditions, school closures. Check it out here.

*Stefany Bales is leaving U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo's CDA office to run Idaho branch of Pac/West Communications (a PR/govt affairs firm based in Wilsonville, Ore.) She tells Huckleberries that she'll be operating out of her home until she finds office space.
