On Facebook, Syringa Japanese Café & Sushi Bar, in Coeur d’Alene’s Midtown, tells of a disagreement with a customer over a Happy Meal. Seems the cuss-tomer arrived with a Happy Meal from Mickey D’s, for a child in the party, and was told bluntly that the restaurant didn’t allow outside food or drink. Later, the cuss-tomer left a pointed note saying that Syringa was a favorite eatery but s/he wouldn’t be returning.

Huckleberries: Potty mouth exchange at council sanitized

New Coeur d’Alene City Clerk Renata McLeod is too proper to insert that nasty exchange between Councilman Steve Adams and City Attorney Mike Gridley in her draft minutes of the council meeting Tuesday – you know, the segment in which Adams tattles that Gridley called him an “ignorant (expletive deleted)” during a five-minute break. Thus, Adams was partly thwarted in his effort to read Gridley’s epithet into the record. At least, Gridley didn’t call Adams a “lying whore,” as a certain Spokane councilman did re: Washington Gov. Jay Inslee. We’re a tad more civil in Coeur d’Alene.
