Huckleberries: What if they threw an election and hardly anyone showed up?

What if they threw an election and hardly anyone showed up? Does it still count? In Kootenai County, only 5.68 percent of the registered voters bothered to go to the polls or cast write-in ballots in the nonpartisan local elections for hospital, school, water, library, and highway district boards Tuesday. In D.F. Oliveria’s Precinct 52, only 26 of 701 (3.71 percent) of the registered voters cast ballots. Oliveria says it’s time to vote by mail in Idaho, too.

Huckleberries: You can be a good person & eat liver

My Tuesday print column begins by discussing liver and onions with Rustlers Roost owner Woody McEvers. Even Woody is surprised by how many orders of liver and onions that he sells. I know that good people can eat liver and onions because my father did. And he was a good guy. I consider the dish horrible.

Huckleberries: You can be a good person and still eat liver and onions

Believe it or not, liver and onions is a popular dish at Rustler's Roost in Hayden. Restaurant owner Woody McEvers says he has customers drop in for the meal on a regular basis. Often, one half of the couple likes liver and onions. And the other doesn’t – and doesn’t want the cooking process to stink up the house. It’s a dish that's hard to beat for $7.50. But many would take a pass on liver and onions, if it was given away free.

Huckleberries: Birthday got no lift from elevator

Violinist Cathyanne Nonini of Coeur d’Alene sang the blues on her 61st birthday at the Mall of America in Bloomington, Minn., when she and her sister got stuck in a disabled elevator.

Huckleberries: Nonini-Whalen campaign trail hits nasty patch

That Facebook post by state Sen. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d’Alene, didn’t stay up long – you know, the one in which he blasted opponent Pat Whalen for picking on Nonini’s wife, Cathyanne. It read: “My opponent took a cheap shot at my wife (Thursday night) at the NIC Candidate Forum – what type of person attacks a wife? Not a reputable or credible person.” At the forum, Whalen raised the fact that he had received a DUI in 2006, according to the Coeur d’Alene Press. That was a shocker. So was his subsequent comment that Cathyanne Nonini was trying to use the old DUI conviction to get Whalen dumped as chairman of the Boys & Girls Club of Kootenai County.
