Huckleberries: Word of advice brings chocolate-chip reward

Everyone seems related to everyone else in North Idaho. This includes the female jogger that S-R sports scribe Greg Lee and I met near the LCSC/UIdaho branch campus Wednesday. We flagged her down during a noon walk along Coeur d’Alene’s waterfront – to warn her. Greg and I had seen a strange guy hiding in the thick pines a short distance up the trail. We made eye contact with him – and he moved deeper into the trees. The jogger thanked us and turned around.

Huckleberries: Campaign coincidence has Seymour’s number

In spring 2011, there was a minor flap about the post office box number for the Coeur d’Alene School Board campaign supporting candidates Tom Hamilton and Terri Seymour. Inadvertently, the campaign was given the same number as a defunct one that had been used by the Aryan Nations. That caught the attention of some, including The Spokesman-Review. We investigated and found there was no connection between the two groups. Seymour hasn’t let the matter go, however. On Monday, Seymour asked applicant Christa Hazel during public interviews to fill a vacant school board trustee spot whether she’d said Hamilton and Seymour were members of the Aryan Nations.

Huckleberries: Matching views to office sought can be tricky

Let’s play a game. Huckleberries will tell you where candidate John Green stands on issues. And you guess which office he’s seeking. Ready?
