If you go to the refrigerator for 30 seconds during a commercial break at this year's Super Bowl, you will miss the ad for which Pepsi Cola spent $2.4 million.

They were first grown as a salad crop and vegetable. All parts are edible. Fancy restaurants often feature them on their menus.

Women's sports

The Linotype

In high school, I won an award for an essay I wrote about girls' sports. I don't recall much of it but it dealt in part with girls' basketball rules. In 1956, there were six players on a high school team in Illinois, three forwards (obliged to stay in the forecourt) and three guards (who stayed in the backcourt). Only forwards could shoot which made sense because no one else was near enough to the basket; a shot from half court would have been distinctly unladylike. Mostly, the girls could dribble only twice before they had to pass or shoot.

Picket fence romance

Amid the hubbub of our modern must-do-it-all lifestyles, there is a longing that lingers for simpler schedules and down-home happiness. You know the feeling. It lingers in me, even as I wake each morning to my beloved farm outside my window. I find myself too busy too often, and I end up shirking my instinct to soak up the slower side of life. That's why I like little reminders. A rustic framed picture of a frontier woman here, an old cast-iron kitchen tool there. More than a collection of matching frills for a superfluous show home, my collection of kitschy knickknacks and down-to-earth decor has been harvested over the years of my life by hand and by heart. And while they don't exactly define who I am, they do help me keep in touch with my inner farm girl when the world around me is going a bit bonkers.

Huckleberry recipes

Food for Thought

Let's celebrate the state fruit of Idaho - the huckleberry. These purple pearls of slightly tart sweetness are gifts from God for those lucky enough to pick and enjoy them. You can find true pickers and native Idahoans by using a bit of detective work. First, look for a distinct dark red color stain on the thumb, first and middle finger of a true huckleberry hound's hand for evidence of recent picking. Expert pickers will only show a stain on one hand while rookies might sport two mitts of the red dye. Sadly, I'm a two-handed picker - a disgrace to my family and friends.

Film and media - solution for economic development?

MY TURN

In an economy where manufacturing and service-related jobs and careers are being lost due to businesses closing or outsourcing, the film and media industry can be the solution for economic development and job diversity. The motion picture and television industry is a significant tax revenue generator. In 2008, it generated $15.7 billion in public revenues in the United States. This included $12.9 billion in income taxes at the federal level, including unemployment, Medicare and Social Security, $2 billion in income taxes at the state level, along with sales taxes on goods. The industry is one of the most highly competitive around the world, one of the few that consistently generates a positive balance of trade in practically every country in which it does business.

KTEC: Now is not the time

Now that we have heard the political side of the issue, let's try to get the whole story on this KTEC project. OK, the land was donated. It's not going anywhere. It will still be there five or 10 years from now. Sure, the state is going to fund some expenses like they do for the rest of the schools, but keep in mind that most of the budget goes to wages and benefits. They are talking about half-day classes at KTEC, which means the busses will be running a lot more, consequently more transportation expenses. Remember the Coeur d'Alene school district's multi-million dollar levy a couple of years ago? Where did all of that go? After that passed, the pay and benefits in the school district were cut anyway.

KTEC: Time right for new campus

Over the past several years through my involvement with the Workforce Development Task Force of Kootenai County, local Chambers of Commerce, the regional Workforce Innovations Now project, and my current position at the Coeur d'Alene Department of Labor, I have continuously heard from local business and industry that there is concern our youth are not offered enough opportunities to successfully prepare them for the workforce. Many individuals have stated that some students lack exposure to various careers, lack work-readiness skills, or they just don't understand how to apply their education and therefore become disengaged. Events and programs, such as Hard Hats, Hammers and Hot Dogs, and the School-To-Registered-Apprenticeship Program (STRAP), help with exposure to the manufacturing and construction industries; however, we have an even better opportunity coming up in our community to address those concerns more effectively.

To our surprise and embarrassment we came upon trash that had been left behind rather than carried out. As we started to pick up what trash would fit in the one plastic sack we had with us, our family joined in and helped. This was not exactly what we had in mind in taking them on a scenic hike to enjoy the various views of Lake Coeur d'Alene. The one sack was filled in no time and had we had additional sacks with us, they, too, would have become filled with what others left behind.

Those were the days. I grew up in the Silver Valley and every time I was in Coeur d'Alene I had to have one of these delicious coney islands. Thanks again for helping this "old timer" relive the good old days. I hope you younger people try this recipe; you don't know what you're missing.

GOVERNMENT: Work beats entitlements

I consider myself a common American citizen of modest means never without a job finding a way to meet my obligations. I believe the basis of American economics is a competitive enterprise, not by opportunity which affords a few to make fabulous or unearned fortunes, but because of the encouragement and freedom of choice or action it gives citizens to shape their own lives and plan their own destinies.

CONEYS: Here's the real deal, folks
