Coeur d’Alene moderates victorious in election

Coeur d’Alene voters passed over a slate of hard-line conservatives and elected moderate or left-leaning candidates for mayor and City Council on Tuesday. Business owner Steve Widmyer will take over as mayor Jan. 7. He easily beat longtime City Hall critic Mary Souza 56 percent to 43 percent.

Huckleberries: Former CdA resident hardly shy about how Hawaii ranks for retirees

Major John Chamness of the Salvation Army emails a business story from Hawaii about that MoneyRates.com study claiming Idaho is a better place to retire than the islands. John has a good idea of what both states are like year round. In June 2012, he transferred to his new post as a divisional commander of Hawaii and the Pacific Islands after guiding the construction and first years of the Coeur d’Alene Kroc Center. He appreciates both places, which rank high in the poll – Idaho at No. 1, Hawaii at No. 3.

The water was high and flowing rapidly.

New York Times travel writer Rachel Levin has officially pinpointed the “middle of nowhere” to be in central Idaho (despite those of you who thought it was in the greater Athol area). According to the Gray Lady reporter, the middle of nowhere is Stanley, Idaho, squeezed between the Salmon River of No Return and the Sawtooth Mountains. In a Wednesday article, Levin writes: “The ‘Entering Stanley, Idaho’ sign seemed more like a friendly warning than a welcome. ‘Population 63,’ it read, as if to say: Congratulations, you’ve made it to the middle of nowhere.
