Smile When You Say ‘Corndogs’

Aug. 28, 2014 5:18 p.m. - Updated: 5:36 p.m.

Every time someone mentions “corndogs,” I get hungry. I might have to add “corndogs” to the list of banned words here @Hucksonline — DFO.

Question: Does the mere mention of the word “corndog” make you hungry? If not, what word does?

FishinJay (RE: CEA rains of school district's breakfast) : I generally support the concept of unions and have worked in some great union situations, but this flyer is exactly the kind of thing that makes me hate some unions. This flyer is not pro-employee, it is fiercely anti-management. If management tried to undermine the union's meeting, the union would have a fit, and they would be right. But the union see's nothing wrong with trying to undermine management's completely legitimate desire to hold a meeting to encourage and motivate employees for the school year.

Tom Wielgos (cq) celebrates after entering the one winning bid for the Priest Lake cabin site where he has a home this afternoon. The state of Idaho auctioned off long-leased cabin sites, many with cabins or houses on them, forcing the longtime cabin owners to buy the land under their rural vacation homes. Most lots ranged from $200K to $650K. See story below. (SR photo: Jesse Tinsley)

A woman lays in a puddle of tomato juice during the annual “tomatina” tomato fight fiesta in the village of Bunol, 50 kilometers outside Valencia, Spain, Wednesday, Aug. 27, 2014. The streets of an eastern Spanish town are awash with red pulp as thousands of people pelt each other with tomatoes in the annual “Tomatina” battle that has become a major tourist attraction. At the annual fiesta in Bunol on Wednesday, trucks dumped 125 tons of ripe tomatoes for some 22,000 participants, many from abroad to throw during the hour-long morning festivities.

Arm Cops w/Cameras, Not BearCats

Aug. 28, 2014 3:55 p.m. - Updated: 4:07 p.m.

The Editorial in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News argues that police need to armed themselves with cameras, not more military gear, using the mess in Ferguson, Mo., as an example. Another example may be the controversial shooting of a 2-year-old lab by Coeur d'Alene police this summer. The editorial says in part: “What we find confusing is how many of the nation's police forces are equipped with military-grade equipment and not these relatively inexpensive cameras. All that high-tech equipment, best suited for places like Iraq and Afghanistan, has done little to keep the peace in Ferguson, and likely only increased tensions. Who wouldn't be a little on edge at seeing officers decked out in camouflage and armed with assault rifles? Those armored personnel carriers and other vehicles don't help.” More here.

Question: Do you agree/disagree that local police should arm themselves with cameras instead of military gear?


City To Dedicate Sherman Substation

Aug. 28, 2014 3:40 p.m. - Updated: 3:44 p.m.

The community is invited to an open house and ribbon cutting at the new police substation at 10 a.m. Tuesday. The substation is located at 1424 Sherman Avenue. There will be tours of the facility and city officials, along with representatives of the police and fire departments, will be in attendance. The substation will be “fully functional” and manned by officers and other support staff Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Officers will have access to the substation 24/7 to file reports and conduct other police business. Locating a substation in this district will provide for increased visibility, quicker response times in the south part of town and act as a deterrent to crime, said Interim Chief Ron Clark. “Not only will this provide a visible police presence, the citizens now have a location in that part of the city to contact police,” Clark said/Keith Erickson, Coeur d'Alene Today.

Auction: Locals Snap Up Cabin Sites

Aug. 28, 2014 1:51 p.m. - Updated: 1:53 p.m.

The first dozen-plus Priest Lake cabin sites to be auctioned today all have sold for the appraised value to the existing lessee, with no one else bidding. Each time, when the auctioneer declared, “Sold!,” the crowd, which now includes lots of people standing up in back and along the sides along with hundreds seated in rows, erupted into cheers and applause – and occasionally whistles and shouts, too. The auctioneer noted that the auction is moving along quickly. Slides of the cabin sites, the homes and their views of the lake are being projected on large screens up front during the bidding/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Sounds like a good outcome, after all the fuzz, right?
