Longevity Chiropractic leases Post Falls space

Longevity Chiropractic is now leasing space at Kiemle and Hagood Co.'s Cornerstone Center commercial office building in Post Falls.

The 11,000-square-foot building, located at 761 N. Thornton Ave., is now fully occupied. There are seven tenants, said Chris Schreiber, commercial broker with Kiemle and Hagood.

The startup Longevity Chiropractic moved in mid-October and is occupying 1,500 square feet of floor space, Schreiber said.

Merry Maids, a home-cleaning services business, began occupying 1,000 square feet of leased space at Cornerstone Center this month.

Merry Maids, which has about 30 employees, had been operating from Spokane Valley, at 2901 N. Argonne Road. It also had an office in Coeur d'Alene earlier this year at 3909 N. Schreiber Way.

Holly McArthur, a representative of Merry Maids, said the Post Falls location is more centrally located between its customers.

She said the business provides service to customers as far west as Cheney and Medical Lake and as far north as Sandpoint.

Merry Maids is owned by Danny Barnett, she said.

Hilbish receives 2010 medallion award

Hap Hilbish, a real estate agent with Century 21 Beutler and Associates' Coeur d'Alene office, recently received the 2010 medallion award from the Council of Residential Specialists. He was one of nine certified residential specialists (CRS) designees who were honored during the council's awards ceremony last month in New Orleans.

The medallion award recognizes CRS designees who have excelled in their real estate careers and also have volunteered their time and expertise to serve the council and its members.

To be eligible for the award, nominees must have 15 years of continuous membership with the council and tangible volunteer work at the state and local levels.

Hilbish has been an active member of the council since 1995. He has been involved as North Idaho sub-chapter president, Idaho chapter president, and served five years as a regional vice president.

Currently Hilbish is regional vice president and oversees the chapters in Virginia, central Virginia, West Virginia and the Maryland and Washington, D.C., area. He is an associate broker at Century 21 Beutler and Associates and is a member of the Coeur d'Alene Association of Realtors board of directors.

"I believe this recognition by my peers is a highlight of my 35 years of involvement in the Realtor community," Hilbish said.

The council of residential specialist is a nonprofit affiliate of the National Association of Realtors and is comprised of more than 38,000 members.

Activist invited to attend Washington, D.C., forum

Silver Valley community activist Barbara Miller has been invited and will be attending a forum called by President Obama's Council on Environmental Quality at the White House in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday.

On hand will be U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson, National Environmental Justice Director Lisa Garcia as well as other senior officials.

"I'm looking forward to bringing the concerns of affected citizens to the attention of the White House and those who will be in attendance," said Miller, who has worked on cleanup of the Bunker Hill and Coeur d'Alene River Basin superfund site for multiple years.

The Bunker Hill site extends from the Montana-Idaho border and into Washington state. Heavy metal mine waste is spread throughout a designated 1500 square mile site.
