Pelicans Roosting At Highway 95 And Cherry Lane In Coeur D’Alene

Even the name is appealing "Pelicans." Combining the features of both previous occupants, Pelicans Restaurant opened last week at Highway 95 and Cherry Lane, in front of Tidyman's, in Coeur d'Alene. The lunch and dinner restaurant combines the barbecue specialty of the Stampede Restaurant, which it was called when it opened several years ago, and the seafood specialties of Monarch Fisheries, its most-recent name.

Dollar Gains Ground On Mark

The dollar rose slightly against the German mark in quiet trading Tuesday on indications that Europe may continue to have lower interest rates than the United States. But the dollar slipped against the yen in part because Japanese corporations were selling foreign assets to help balance their books at the end of the month, which is the close of their fiscal year.

Live-Wire Coach Helps Huskies Get Dance Invite

Before Bob Bender the program was going nowhere, buried in an avalanche of ennui. Who wanted to come to Washington to play basketball? All the years of losing. A drafty, empty old building. The musty certainty of life in the Pac-10's cellar.

Cashman Out As Flyers Coach

Wayne Cashman is out as coach of the slumping Philadelphia Flyers, demoted to an assistant and replaced by Roger Neilson, a hockey nomad if ever there was one. With the team on a 4-8 skid, the Flyers on Monday removed Cashman 61 games into his rookie season - the shortest coaching stint in Flyers' history. "We hope for the best, you know," said injured Flyers star Eric Lindros. "We weren't playing too tough, but at the same time our record wasn't too bad."

Gates Moonlights For Extra Income?

Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates has done pretty well selling software. Now he's taking a swing at selling golf clubs. Gates agreed to make a television commercial for Big Bertha drivers as a favor to maker Ely Callaway, said Microsoft spokesman John Pinette.

Pacers Lose Protest Of Officiating Error

The NBA denied a protest by the Indiana Pacers of a Feb. 20 loss to the Orlando Magic. The Pacers lost the game 93-91 and contended that referees misapplied the rules regarding the correction of officiating errors. With 55.5 seconds left in the third quarter, the officials failed to realize that Orlando's Dan Schayes should have been awarded two free throws when Indiana was called for its second foul in the final 2 minutes of the period.

‘Terabyte Triangle’ Aims For High-Speed Internet Access

Downtown Spokane is getting wired for the future. Last September, the Fernwell Building became the first site in the downtown core to install high-speed Internet access with the goal of attracting software companies as tenants. The plan to make downtown Spokane into a miniature Silicon Valley - labeled the "Terabyte Triangle"- was conceived by Steve Simmons, co-director of the software engineering laboratory at the Spokane Intercollegiate Research and Technology Institute (SIRTI).

St. Louis Goalie Feels Fortunate

Considering what St. Louis Blues goalie Jamie McLennan has gone through, facing 5-on-3s isn't any big deal. McLennan is one of the hottest goaltenders in the NHL these days, stepping in for the injured Grant Fuhr during the team's five-game winning streak. McLennan got his first career shutout on Thursday against Montreal and held Dallas to one goal on Saturday. He has allowed just eight goals during the streak.

Be Aware Of Business Life Cycles

As mere mortals, we are all too familiar with the natural cycle of birth, growth, maturity and expiration. We structure our lives and careers around it. It is difficult to understand, therefore, why so many managers lose sight of the fact that one of their most important responsibilities is accommodating and exploiting the lifecycles of their enterprises. Q. I'm a CEO of a midsize company and I have a hard time getting my managers to understand that, if we don't keep "re-inventing" our business, we are going to be left in the dust by competitors who do it better and faster. Can you give me an example to help make my point?

Cougs Place Fifth

Washington State used an early scoring attack and then fended off a late Cal State Northridge rally to secure a 13-11 victory Sunday at Earl E. Wilson Field in Las Vegas. With the win, the Cougars (7-7) placed fifth in the 18th annual Coors/UNLV Desert Classic. WSU freshman Jason Grove was called upon to make his first collegiate start on the mound. Grove, who had previously started every game in right field, gave up only two earned runs in four innings. Cougar sophomore Les McTavish (1-1) got the win.
