Sandpoint Enjoys Banner Year Of Successes

The year 1997 can be summarized in one word: Sandpoint. Several other schools and athletes shined, but none brighter than Sandpoint. From most recent to last winter, here's a look at the year's highlights:

From Crackers To Pie, A Look At The Best Of ‘97

Amid all the fat-free frozen dinners and funny-flavored fruit drinks, once in a while we serve The Spokesman-Review's reader food panel some pretty decent stuff. And if you look at it over a long enough period - say, the past year - you could actually put together a fairly respectable menu. That's exactly what we've done, coming up with the food panel's "Greatest Hits of 1997" - the top-scoring snack, side dish, main dish, drink and dessert items sampled during the year.

Bette Takes Top Honors For Area Concerts

It's time to pick the top concerts of 1996 in the Inland Northwest, and for me, the task is laughably easy. That's because of Bette Midler. This Opera House show was almost illegally enjoyable. This concert went far beyond music and into full-fledged Broadway spectacle, with heavy doses of comedy, vaudeville and burlesque.

Outback Steakhouse: Come On Over For A Touch Of Down Under

Outback Steakhouse is the first restaurant in Spokane with an Australian attitude. The menu is full of "clever" descriptions like "Our steaks are fair dinkum ... It was one of those choice dishes that Mad Max was so mad about" or "No worries mate. Have a bo-peep at these treats and ava go!"

1994 May Have Been High Tide For Kootenai Home Market

Though the 1995 Kootenai County market finished stronger than some real estate analysts predicted, the rip-roaring '90s appear to be over. For the year, just 4 percent fewer homes changed hands in Kootenai County than in record-breaking 1994, according to numbers from the Coeur d'Alene Multiple Listing Service.
