Caldwell: Bonneville power plan creates buzz in industry

Moan as we might, and do, about the windy, wet spring weather, our troubles are small compared with those facing the Bonneville Power Administration. Last June, an unexpected confluence of high winds and high water almost forced Bonneville to pay for power.

Caldwell: AARP has self-interest in health care reform

Republicans are shocked the AARP and its licensed insurance plans stand to benefit from a health care reform bill, and will sacrifice the best interest of its members to make a buck.

Caldwell: Nuclear vision needn’t be clouded

The agonizing struggle of the Japanese to avoid further catastrophe at the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear complex necessarily has many rethinking the rethinking about nuclear energy’s future. Many hoped fission would be a cost-effective alternative to combustion that, no matter how “clean,” produces carbon dioxide, the primary cause of man-made global warming. President Barack Obama, like George W. Bush before him, is prepared to backstop loans for new plants with billions of dollars in federal guarantees.

Caldwell: For minority business suppliers, certification can be road to success

Wheatland Bank earned a profit last quarter, as it has for every quarter since it was founded in Davenport 32 years ago. The holding company, Community Financial Group Inc., raised $3.7 million in mid-summer without any prompting from regulators who have been, let us say, emphatic in the case of other area institutions.

Caldwell: Deficit discussions are truly farcical

Here’s one bottom line on all the foolishness about perpetuating the worst-conceived tax cuts in U.S. history: the transfer of $500 billion more in American wealth to the Chinese. Not to pick on the Chinese, much. Their response to the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize to imprisoned dissident Liu Xiaobo – creation of an alternative Confucius Peace Prize – was a sad farce.

Mayoral candidate had fight in court

Coeur d’Alene mayoral candidate Josh Arnold said his candidacy is not at odds with his views about the constitutional authority of a Kootenai County court where, several months ago, he reportedly got into a scuffle that broke a bailiff’s elbow. Arnold was ordered in March to spend five days in custody for contempt of court after fighting with bailiffs and interrupting Magistrate Judge Robert Caldwell during a hearing, the Coeur d’Alene Press reported.
