Forecast looks good for Ironman

COEUR d'ALENE - There won't be a repeat of last year's miserable Ironman Coeur d'Alene weather conditions.

Instead of rainy and cold, it's going to be sunny, hot and dry, said climatologist Cliff Harris. The water temperature should be about 60 degrees, while above it should be low-50s in the morning and 80s by mid-day. Just mild winds, maybe 5 mph, are forecast for the morning, so swimmers should be looking at a calm Lake Coeur d'Alene for the 7 a.m. Sunday swim.

"Things are looking up," Harris said Thursday. "We're very fortunate."

Despite the third-wettest spring on record in Coeur d'Alene, the area has enjoyed fairly good weather on weekends for events like Car d'Lane and now, Ironman.

"We probably lucked out in having fairly good weather for all these different events here," he said.

Cd'A police say missing man found


The missing person reported Monday has been located.

Coeur d'Alene Police are no longer searching for George R Clowdus, 29, the department said Thursday.

Clowdus has been last seen by his roommates on Saturday.

Bald Mountain

gondola to start

KETCHUM (AP) - Sun Valley Resort in central Idaho plans to start running its gondola on Bald Mountain on Saturday for the summer tourist season.

The gondola carries passengers 2,000 feet to the resort's Roundhouse restaurant midway up the mountain.

From there, passengers can get on a chair lift to go to the top of the 9,151-foot mountain.

Costs range from $10 for children to $20 for adults. All-day passes add $5.
