CdA’s political waters calm, as mayor, council go uncontested in November

Despite a history of hard-fought campaigns and an unsuccessful but bitter recall attempt against the mayor and council just five years ago, Coeur d’Alene’s city elections are looking much different this fall: Mayor Steve Widmyer and three city council members all are running unopposed.

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.

Writer refutes ‘boring’ label given to Post Falls

Online reporter Chanse Watson of the Idaho Panhandler didn’t appreciate a website that ranked his hometown of Post Falls as the second-most boring one in Idaho. How can Post Falls be boring? That’s what Chanse wondered last week in a column. After all, he said, it’s near two towns that rank high on national lists of amazing mountain communities – Coeur d’Alene and Sandpoint.

Huckleberries: Potty mouth exchange at council sanitized

New Coeur d’Alene City Clerk Renata McLeod is too proper to insert that nasty exchange between Councilman Steve Adams and City Attorney Mike Gridley in her draft minutes of the council meeting Tuesday – you know, the segment in which Adams tattles that Gridley called him an “ignorant (expletive deleted)” during a five-minute break. Thus, Adams was partly thwarted in his effort to read Gridley’s epithet into the record. At least, Gridley didn’t call Adams a “lying whore,” as a certain Spokane councilman did re: Washington Gov. Jay Inslee. We’re a tad more civil in Coeur d’Alene.

Huckleberries: No gas, no problem on sunny Hayden Lake day

Another week, another lake rescue story from North Idaho, although not as dramatic as the one in which a father and a son capsized their sailboat in high winds on chilly Lake Pend Oreille. In fact, Shirley Thagard could think of no better place to be stranded on her pontoon boat on a sunny day than Hayden Lake. At 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Shirley was on a final tour of the lake when she discovered the gas gauge wasn’t accurate – empty happens before the needle gets to “E.”

Coeur d’Alene voter recall efforts officially fall short

An effort to oust Coeur d’Alene’s mayor and half of its City Council has fallen short. The attempted recall, pushed by voters unhappy with the city’s planned waterfront revamp of McEuen Field, failed to gather enough valid signatures to force an election. Organizers were about 200 to 250 signatures short.
