TGIF Wild Card — 3.11.11

Terry Harris, of the Kootenai Environmental Alliance, tweets that Post Falls Mayor Clay Larkin is celebrating his 75th birthday today. I first met Clay many moons ago when he was a school trustee running for the Post Falls City Council. I like him from the start. I can't think of anything he has done in his many years as a public servant in the River City that has changed my initial impression ... and quite a few things that have enhanced it. So please join me in a shout-out to the type of elected official that all communities should hope to have. Now, for your Wild Card ...
