Hecla stakes its claim in Wallace with new office

After an absence of 26 years, Hecla Mining Co. has moved an office back into Wallace. The 119-year-old company had an office in Wallace from about 1917 to 1984, when it moved its corporate office to 6500 N. Mineral Drive in Coeur d’Alene. The main office will remain there, and the Wallace office is at 611 Bank St. Dr. Wayne Jurkovich moved his dental office from there to an empty location next door.

With about 320 employees in North Idaho alone, Hecla also has an office in Vancouver, B.C., and mines of silver and/or gold in the Silver Valley (the Lucky Friday), Alaska, Colorado, Mexico and Venezuela. The name Hecla historically has connections to old mines in Montana and back East and a volcano in Iceland. Hours at the Wallace office are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. weekdays. Visit

Parkwood moves to Riverview Tower

Occupying 2,900 square feet, Parkwood Business Properties has moved into its own five-story Riverview Tower on Northwest Boulevard. The glass building overlooks the Spokane River, Lake Coeur d’Alene and the Village at Riverstone development. The 35-year-old company manages and owns more than a million square feet of office and retail space in the Coeur d’Alene area. Applegate Hospice (more on that next week) now occupies Parkwood’s previous space of 1,600 square feet in the Interlake Medical Building.

The Riverview Tower building has office space available in various sizes and includes underground parking and a common conference facility with an outside deck. Call (208) 667-4086 or visit

This week’s tidbits:

• In reference to the Hecla news above, the freeway exits between Mullan and Wallace primarily are named after previous mines such as the Morning District, Golgonda District and Compressor District.

• Bobby’s Bakery & Coffee Bar south of the 7-Eleven in Hayden has closed.

• The Wildwaters website says the Coeur d’Alene water-fun park is closed for renovations and will open in 2011. But no renovations are going on now. You’d think those would be done during the off-season.

• Thanks to reader John Leonard for pointing out that last week we didn’t run where Pazzo’s Deli will be when it opens in August. It will be at the old Brycie’s Restaurant location on the west side of North Fourth Street between Interstate 90 and Appleway/Best Avenue. Brycie’s moved to Ironwood Drive between Lincoln Way and Northwest Boulevard.

• Two weeks ago the e-mail connection for the new St. Joseph’s Consignment store on Sherman Avenue was listed incorrectly. It’s
