ARIZONA: Obama snubs the rational

Mr. Odell, I read your letter in the Sunday Press about the president and the Arizona Immigration Bill. You really think he cares what you and I think? It took Arizona to pass the bill — the feds wouldn’t touch it —  and he wants these people that the bill is targeting as future votes for himself and his party. I can’t believe there are people out there who don’t see who he really is. He is an organizer and socialist; I would think they mean the same. He wants us under his thumb; he wants us to believe we can’t function without the government. Look at the people who are his advisors. That is scary.

Sholeh Patrick's May 25 column on campaign slogans was excellent. The combination of many not voting and the ones who do being in a sound bite culture is disheartening. On a radio 1080 candidate interview I thought the candidate was going to vocalize being in favor of taking good care of puppies.

ARIZONA: Obama snubs the rational

Mr. Odell, I read your letter in the Sunday Press about the president and the Arizona Immigration Bill. You really think he cares what you and I think? It took Arizona to pass the bill — the feds wouldn't touch it —  and he wants these people that the bill is targeting as future votes for himself and his party. I can't believe there are people out there who don't see who he really is. He is an organizer and socialist; I would think they mean the same. He wants us under his thumb; he wants us to believe we can't function without the government. Look at the people who are his advisors. That is scary.

HOYT: Press did man no justice

I just returned from the funeral of Grant Hoyt. The church in Rathdrum was packed with friends, family and loved ones. In fact, people were standing in the rain outside because there was no room in the church. Grant touched so many lives. He died recently from unknown causes. Alone. I was surprised and disappointed by the Coeur d'Alene Press article about his death. It struck me as short-sighted and hastily written. Who did it serve to elaborate at length about his past?  Rathdrum Chief of Police Kevin Fuhr’s comments were not appropriate for the story. What good did they serve? Why didn't the reporter take two minutes to speak with a family member or friend who could shed a different light — and balance the comments made by the trash-talking police chief? Overall, the article confused and saddened me. Not for me, but for his family. Grant deserved better.

STORM: That was a tornado

I read your front page article concerning some houses in the  Hayden Lake area that were damaged by the abrupt windstorm last week.  I can say that here in Dalton Gardens, I was out after 8:30 p.m., I was putting up some rebuilt metal shelves to store as extra shelf space in my new green house.  I noticed that clouds coming out of the west were particularly fast moving.  It had been real calm as to the wind until those clouds came very swiftly overhead.  Then in a matter of minutes, especially when I went to feed the dogs, the wind had become particularly strong and had a whirling sound in it.  A very fast whirling sound.  I also saw a low hanging giant wedged-shaped cloud over the hills.  It was, by that time to the southeast.  But it wouldn't surprise me that it had come over the Hayden Lake area.  Tornadoes are known to move pretty erratically.  And this definitely looked like and further sounded like a tornado.  The wind was loud enough that even my mother heard it and thought it was "cars traveling in front of the house"  or rain.  And had soon come out to see what was going on.

Human thought has isolated three basic types of irony: There's verbal irony, in which what is said is the opposite of what is meant (think politics). Then there's dramatic irony, in which the audience has information the characters don't (think Wall Street insiders). Finally, there's situational irony, in which the expected outcome doesn't happen (think health care or foreign policy). And isn't it ironic that the same brain that is able to label these ironies is unable to free itself from them?

SAVED: Potential disaster averted

Last Monday evening I sat down to supper and got a piece of meat stuck in my lower throat. I could not get it dislodged so my wife took me to the Spirit Lake Fire Department. We did not want to dial 911 and tie up our emergency services for fear that someone would need them in a life and death situation.

North Idaho man has experience of lifetime at Mt. Rainier

If I live to be 100, I may never see a better day to climb, especially on the fickle Mt. Rainier. I had been looking forward to this weekend for a while - everyone I normally "do stuff with" was out of town, and so I had noted this date on my calendar as a possibility for getting over and doing a "real" mountain. I had had no luck finding a climbing partner, and so, with a little bit of trepidation, I made the 6.5-hour drive toward Rainier on my own, with ever increasing clouds as I got closer.

IB: Police presence wasn't the story

I am surprised and disappointed in your front page article “Stakes rising in IB spat.” Rather than addressing what the concern of the parents are you focused on the police presence. The fact that the police were called by the school shows attempted intimidation by the school administrators. If the protesters had created a reason for oversight of the law I'm sure a citizen would have called.

Rick consistently championed their cause and last Wednesday’s paper announced the county purchased the property for Worley. Candidates haven’t changed, they say anything to get elected. Rick Currie made promises and has kept his promises to the people. Rick takes and values his endless time attending meetings in all the towns and cities in the county. He will not be pressured to vote for the comprehensive plan until it is representative of the best interests of the people of this county. I urge all my friends and the people of this region to keep Rick Currie in the office of commissioner. He is still the right person for us!

The nature of nettles

The nature of nettles

Nature never ceases to amaze me with its boundless ability to feed, soothe and cure us - if only we open our senses to its possibilities. Part of discovering nature's nurturing qualities as contemporary humans is seeking out the lessons learned by those who have blazed trails before us. Over eons, people have fumbled their way through the woods, enduring scrapes, bruises, stomachaches and even death in order to figure out how the vast diversity of wild-growing wonders can actually benefit our existence. A few of these "wonders" would seem pretty unlikely to the first-time observer. Take, for instance, the stinging nettle. If you've ever been unfortunate enough to innocently swipe a bit of bare skin past the leaves or stem of the stinging nettle, you probably came away from the experience with a nasty, burning rash and an even nastier opinion of the plant that "bit" you. The stinging sensation from the chemical irritants on the nettle's needle-like hairs can persist for up to a week - no fun.

The polls will be open Tuesday in St. Maries as voters consider an $850,000 supplemental levy the school district is floating before them.

PIAZZA: Voice for our veterans

I have followed Rich Piazza as County Commissioner on many issues that he has taken on and have found him to be honest and straightforward in his decision making. Because of this, I am endorsing the re-election of Rich for Kootenai County Commsissioner. Rich has always been available to provide guidance and support for issues that I may present to him and, he has also been of great assistance to the veterans in our county. He is a staunch supporter of meeting their needs. Make sure you vote in this election and vote for Rich Piazza.

The 17th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution provides for U.S. senators to be elected directly by the people of the several states, and was ratified in 1913. This amendment served to bring government closer to the people, and closer to democracy. Effectively, this amendment stopped what had been decades of problems with deadlocked state legislatures leaving senate seats unfilled for prolonged periods of time. It stopped real and perceived bribery and corruption that had permeated the senatorial selection process, and the practice of some states sending a different senator to Washington every year.

Mr. Litman, you are right on with your assessment of what's going on in Arizona and California about immigration. I lived in Southern California most of my life. They might have brought cheap labor with them when they arrived but then they got on the state’s dime taking money from any agency they could plus crime went up, and yes, most of the money they made went back to Mexico. They cost California a bundle. Why California is in a mess is just not union pensions, etc., it’s also the illegals.
