Caldwell staying with Baltimore

Jim Caldwell will remain the Baltimore Ravens’ offensive coordinator next season. Caldwell moved from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator on Dec. 9 after coach John Harbaugh fired Cam Cameron.

Caldwell relishes expanded duties

Don’t expect Jim Caldwell to incorporate the triple-option or a variety of trick plays in his first NFL game as an offensive coordinator. Caldwell grabbed the reins of the Baltimore Ravens’ offense on Monday after head coach John Harbaugh fired Cam Cameron. Caldwell was in his first year as Baltimore’s quarterbacks coach, a job he will retain moving forward.

Caldwell: West Point trained local bankers to survive

The U.S. Military Academy at West Point graduates about 1,000 second lieutenants each year. Although trained to command men and women in combat, many leave the Army when their hitch is up and look for opportunities to use their leadership skills in civilian arenas.

Caldwell: Health insurers should take hint from Blue Shield

If you want to thank anyone for enactment of President Obama’s health care reforms, those anyones would be Blue Shield of California and Anthem Blue Cross. That state’s two biggest health insurance providers announced huge premium increases — 39 percent for Anthem — as debate on the reforms reached its final, fevered pitch last spring. Apparently, they took California’s nickname “Golden State” literally.

Caldwell: Military elevates biofuel’s status

When the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds spun, rolled and shrieked through two days of performances at Andrews Air Force Base a week ago, the demonstration was not just about aeronautic stunts. Two of the six F-16s were burning a 50-50 mix of regular jet fuel and biofuel.

Bank of America recently notified 2,500 customers with mortgage problems they could meet face-to-face with bank representatives who might be able to fast-track modifications that would keep them in their homes. Ethan Churchill threw his away.

Caldwell: Good news, good jobs work well together

April was a good month for Washington’s unemployed: 5,800 of them went back to work. The gain raised the 12-month improvement to 41,500, a good-news story even if those still not drawing a paycheck number more than 300,000. Almost 100,000 of that group are no longer eligible for unemployment benefits.

Editorial page editor Floyd to retire; Caldwell named successor

Doug Floyd, The Spokesman-Review’s longtime editorial page editor, will retire at the end of June, Publisher Stacey Cowles announced this week. At the same time, Cowles announced that Bert Caldwell, a business columnist and reporter for the news organization, will become editorial page editor.

Caldwell: Water disputes need local solutions

Two rivers run through the Rathdrum Prairie and Spokane Valley: one spilling from Lake Coeur d’Alene, one seeping from Pend Oreille, Hayden, Newman and other lakes. Each refreshes the other until all the waters combine downstream from Spokane. All that is left, that is.

Caldwell: All those fingers in the pie left a financial mess

Brian “Duff” Bergquist was not aboard what he calls the Financial Crisis Express, but he was on the platform as the train approached. Now executive-in-residence at Whitworth University, Bergquist was an equities trader in Germany and Great Britain for Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse-First Boston, Morgan Stanley and Lehman Brothers – the locomotives that wrecked the global economy when the express left the tracks in 2008.
