Huckleberries: Casting wallet away one thing, but fishing license worth a dive

Taryn Hecker-Thompson, of Twin Lakes, had one of those “D’oh!” moments at Sonic restaurant on Highway 41 recently – you know, those times when you want to slap your head after you mess up, like Homer Simpson does. While waiting for an Orange Cream Slush that was calling her name, Taryn picked up trash in her vehicle, put it in a McDonald’s bag, and tossed it in the garbage – along with the wallet she’d handled to pay for her drink. Taryn noticed the wallet missing the next day and remembered that the trash she’d tossed at Sonic seemed heavy. Taryn wasn’t too worried about losing her driver’s license or Social Security card. Those can be replaced. She was more concerned about tossing her fishing license. You can’t take the North Idaho out of the girl. It ain’t me, babe

Slopes inspire fourth-grader’s storm names

Christening Coeur d’Alene’s first winter storm of the year Abracadabra, after a black-diamond ski run at Schweitzer Mountain Resort, just might tempt Old Man Winter to make it a good one. If so, no one will be happier than Logan Nosworthy, the 9-year-old snowboarder who won a contest to name the storms in Coeur d’Alene this winter. The Bryan Elementary School fourth-grader has been snowboarding since he was 5 and won by picking names from ski runs at regional resorts.

Book drive started for Kinder Center

Bryan Elementary is hosting a book drive for the Coeur d’Alene School District’s new Kinder Center, beginning Monday and continuing through Oct. 30. The Kinder Center is a new school this year and doesn’t have a library. Bryan is asking for donations of new and gently used books for Pre-K, kindergartners, first-graders, and second-graders.
