Well? Do you prefer the music of your youth?
BAYVIEW — A woman was arrested for allegedly ransacking her boyfriend’s home and causing damage with two axes early Saturday morning following a Christmas party.
Note to self: hide axes before holiday parties. Also, doesn't this sound like a country western song?
A Spokane Regional Health District proposal is part of the health district’s effort to extend prohibitions on smoking in public places to vaping devices.

COEUR d’ALENE — Kootenai County commissioners are considering a new land use category that creates a new classification for resort lodges, conference centers and guest ranches.

In a letter to the Cda Press, Monte Hillman writes, "I hope the state of Idaho and local cities and counties can cut taxes on many items to lessen the burdens on Idaho residents. One thing I’ve seen in another state I lived in, tax breaks that saved its citizens large amounts of money paid on taxes.

Apparently, the chips are not down, they're up, which isn't necessarily a good thing for Idaho potato farmers as you can read below.
So far this week I've had mashed potatoes, scalloped potatoes and tots.
I've done my part for the industry, have you?
This just in: a man can be a maven.
I didn't know this until I was followed by a guy on Twitter who describes himself as a real estate maven.

Last week's heavy snowfall caused even more trees to topple throughout North Idaho. The windstorm and its aftermath has many of us nervously eyeing our trees, but arborists urge caution before removing more trees.
