Juice your fruit!

Juice your fruit!

MaryJane's Everyday Organic

If you have yet to sip fresh fruit juice first thing in the morning, you don't know what you're missing. The taste of fresh juice is positively brilliant, made even sweeter by the fact that you know exactly what went into your glass. According to recent news reports, testing by the Environmental Law Foundation (www.envirolaw.org) tested nearly 150 common juice and packaged fruit products, and they found that 85 percent contained alarming levels of lead. In some instances, individual servings of juice harbored lead levels substantially above the Food and Drug Administration's daily limit. This is really scary when it comes to kids, who can suffer developmental problems from even minute amounts of lead, but it's not a matter to take lightly no matter your age. The solution is simple (and simply delicious): Take the fruit juice out of the factory and bring it home to your kitchen. Maybe you have a surplus of fruit from the summer's harvest, or maybe you have a favorite local source of organically grown produce. Either way, I'll bet you have something fresh on hand right now that you can squeeze for a superbly refreshing drink. Savor it spur-of-the-moment, or store for later use.

Tourism in North Idaho

The Linotype

Searching for rationality

Awakening Remarks

Webster's Dictionary defines the word "irrational" as "lacking usual or normal mental clarity or coherence." Emotion causes me to be irrational from time to time, and Facebook gives me the unfettered ability to share these lapses in judgment with my entire circle of friends. I took advantage of that ability just the other day over what, even in retrospect, is a legitimate issue. However, as someone pointed out in my comments section, my substance (concern for individual rights) was lost in my presentation (suggesting terrorists to, if they MUST target Americans, please prioritize a certain cabinet member.)

The new CLASS Act

On Elder Care

The Community Living Assistance Services and Supports Act (CLASS Act) is contained in the recently passed federal health care reform law. It establishes a voluntary, government-administered, long-term care service program, whereby individuals who enroll in the program and pay monthly premiums are eligible to receive modest cash payments for their long-term care needs. This program is not intended to pay for the full cost of skilled nursing home care, and the average benefit paid would be approximately $75 per day, to be adjusted upward for inflation. There is no lifetime cap on benefits.

Fall - to feed or not to feed?

The Grass really is Greener

As another season of lawn mowing and maintenance comes to an end, it's time to do some planning for the coming year. One of the most common questions I am asked is, "should I fertilize in the fall?" I love the feel-good commercial that one of the better known fertilizer company is running right now on television. They have a number of homeowners telling the benefits of "the fall feed." I couldn't agree more, especially since most of us don't put as much into our lawns during the year as the folks depicted on the commercial.

We must vote out Walt Minnick, who is not the conservative he represents himself as to the citizens of Idaho. When push comes to shove, Walt Minnick will vote with Pelosi and gang.

As a five-year teacher of special education in Lakeland School District, a student of Idaho's public schools kindergarten through graduate school and a citizen of Idaho for my entire life, I'm sickened by the fact that Idaho has plummeted to 50th in the nation in education spending. Without bringing an actual educator to this office, a true understanding of what education is and should be, will be lost for at least another four years.

In the year 1620, one of my ancestors, Mary Chilton, age 13, arrived at Plymouth aboard the Mayflower. Her father, James, was ill and died on the ship, never being able to set foot on this "new land." Legend has it that Mary was aboard a small boat sent out to survey the area and that at this tender age of 13, was the first white woman to go ashore from the Mayflower. Her mother died a short time later that year. As an orphan, she reportedly lived with the family of Gov. William Braddock and William Winslow. Later she married a Winslow, who came to Plymouth in 1621. She is buried in a cemetery in Boston.

MINNICK: Let's re-hire the best

The election of a public official is often rightly described as a job interview for employment as an elected official. Raul Labrador's recent ad in the North Idaho Business Journal suggests that because the current House Speaker should be fired, Walt Minnick himself must be fired and that we hire Mr. Labrador. When smart employers hire or retain employees, they look to that applicant's skills, work performance and track record. Walt Minnick has been these last two years an honest and very effective employee for the citizens of Idaho. He works hard and smart for Idaho's interests. Walt has been very conservative on fiscal and other issues. He deserves to be rehired for two more years.

Cure for college sticker shock

Families of college-bound students share a common illness: sticker shock. Sure, in-state tuition isn't bad, but add dorm, books, and other costs and parents are looking at a lifestyle change for four to six years. If junior wants out-of-state or private school options, things really start to look scary. Tuition alone at private schools can range from $26,000 per academic year to about $40,000. With one in college and one soon to follow, I'm shaking in my boots.

CHRISTIANS: Be heard on Nov. 2

I have been hearing a lot about Christian voters who are staying at home this election year. How can that be? If, as a Christian, we are unhappy or dismayed at our country as it stands today, we have 545 elected officials in Washington who are there by our permission. In Matthews it says we are the salt of the Earth. Salt is a wonderful ingredient for preserving and flavoring. If we are the salt of the Earth and the salt loses its flavor, there will be groaning throughout the land. And believe me it looks like there is groaning throughout the land. If our officials in Washington are elected by us, then we have only ourselves to blame if things go wrong. This is one of the most critical elections of our times, never has so much been at stake. We, The People (in very large letters) starts the words in the Constitution. It doesn't say, we the government. We, the People elect our officials and when the Christian vote stays home, as in 2006 you can see what happens. Now we are facing a landslide toward Democratic control of the House, Senate and Whitehouse. Without a dissenting vote, whatever laws they favor will easily pass with no opposition except for a few right thinking participants.

I-BEST: No time for entitlement

I read with interest your article in the Post Falls Press about the I-BEST program. I laud North Idaho College for providing the students the opportunity to complete their high school education and receive vocational training simultaneously. However, I was angered and dismayed by the sense of entitlement expressed by the student featured in the article ("I was stressing. I thought I'd have to flip burgers to put myself through college"). Many of my peers and I did flip burgers and did other menial jobs to pay for our educations. The assumption that our education was the responsibility of someone other than ourselves did not exist.

SIMS: Idaho is her business

I seldom write letters to the editor but chose this forum to urge voters to give thoughtful consideration to electing Kathy Sims as our state representative for District 4B on November 2. Kathy Sims, a successful businesswoman for over 41 years through both the good and bad times, is eminently qualified to represent the citizens of Coeur d'Alene and Kootenai County. Kathy Sims, a hard working, common sense, compassionate conservative, is highly respected as a business and political leader in Idaho. Kathy Sims is approachable, down to earth and very sensitive to the concerns and challenges others face. I have often known Kathy Sims to make others the benefactors of her good will while expecting no thanks or recognition in return.

HISSONG: Vote for experience

There are no politics in play for these families.

OLSON: Educators show their support

The single most important factor in the quality of education our Idaho students receive is the teacher in the classroom. Stan Olson is keenly aware of the critical role educators play. His unique combination of education and managerial experience qualify him to successfully fill the role of Idaho State Superintendent of Public Instruction. Just as the CEO of Microsoft is required to have experience with computers so, too, should the State Superintendent have experience in education. In his position as Superintendent of the Boise School District, Dr. Olson has proven he is capable of building consensus among public education stakeholders to ensure student success. As State Superintendent, Stan Olson will bring his collaborative skills to develop, with input from the educational community, a long-range plan designed to keep Idaho students moving forward during these difficult financial times and beyond.

October 25, 2010 5:31 a.m.

LUNA: Model is real-world

The recent KTVB debate between present Idaho Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna and his opponent Stan Olson revealed clear differences in the candidates. Olson appeared a classic elitist academic, while Tom Luna represented the real world businessman in his approach to education. Olson has spent his entire career in academia, whereas Luna was a successful business owner before becoming involved in education at the local, state, and national level.

MARANO: She gets collaboration

I keep hearing that government should be run like a business. I disagree. Government does not have a profit and loss margin. Government is mandated to provide certain services without fail. It seems to me that Government should be run like a non-profit organization. Non-profit organizations utilize strategic plans to reach specific goals with restricted budgets. They don't have a profit margin to cut into when times get tough. They understand that partnerships, efficiency and lack of duplication of services are the only way to survive.

In the closing seconds of the JV football game in Sandpoint a fight broke out on the Sandpoint sidelines when one of our players went out of bounds. Now the part that really shows the class of our school: Our coaches easily kept the players from crossing the field as they wanted to help their fallen player. The players on the field went over and removed all of our players before the coaches could really get there. These actions are not the typical reaction you get from a young man 15-16 years old unless they have been coached and taught discipline and teamwork. Hats off to Coach Troxel and the team he has working for him. I was impressed Thursday night.

NELSON: She won't face voters

I have watched with great interest the unpeeling of the Jai Nelson onion, and wondered when she would respond face-to-face with the public's concerns and questions, especially those of us living in a rural community. According to Ms. Nelson herself she apparently has no intention of facing the voters and hides behind lame excuses and the Republican Party protection of support.

COLA: Shame on the nation

An open letter to Our Representatives: So, no COLA adjustment for Social Security recipients again. What are you people thinking? When I wrote to you of my concerns last year about this same issue you told me that well, Congress didn't get one either. Just so you know, there is a difference between not getting a COLA adjustment for someone making a six-figure salary and someone making $650 a month not getting a COLA adjustment.

CHINA: Stories did hit home

Oh, come on now, Patricia Muehlman, lighten up about the China reporting.

Their colorful commentary is very refreshing.

FILM: It has a bright future

It is interesting to note that the United States Department of Labor is projected that wage and salary employment in the motion picture and video industries will grow 14 percent between 2008 and 2018, compared with 11 percent projected growth for wage and salary employment in all industries combined. I have recommended to John Martin and Jay Lee of North Idaho College to add additional classes for film and media. I have suggested to Ron Nilson to inclusion of film and media courses at the proposed Kootenai Technical Education Campus. Film and Media would be excellent to enhance our economic diversity and employment opportunities.

WOLVES: Otter has right idea

Without the public hunt option, which the wolf advocacy will never allow, what choice is there but to "throw our hands up in the air and walk away from the wolf issue" as the lawyer from Earthjustice so conveniently puts it.

RICH: Wealthiest shoulder tax burden

Dear Mr. Cameron, in response to your letter printed Oct. 15, I have to say this; before you go on saying that the "rich people" should start paying their fair share of taxes, and that the "more common man" should get all of the tax breaks, know this; the top 10 percent of wealthiest Americans already pay half of our nation's total tax revenue, and that the lower half of all Americans don't pay any taxes. So, if we are going to reduce our spending, (like we should), then why shouldn't the so-called "rich class" get a tax break? (By the way, I am NOT a rich person.)

Abraham makes us a family

A grassroots movement of citizens from North America, Asia, Africa and Europe has organized what they hope is the first annual Global Oneness Day on Oct 24. They hope to bring people together as "one human family." Their spiritually focused message is that we are all interrelated and interdependent, and that until this commonality is uniformly accepted, wars and other atrocities will continue. Historically speaking, the notion of spiritual "family" isn't far off. While they have their differences, the western world's three major religions are all Abrahamic; Judaism, Christianity and Islam (in historical order) all link their inextricably entwined lineages to Abraham. All are monotheistic, all share Jerusalem as a holy city, all believe God guides through prophets, and all the founding peoples - yes, all - share Semitic origin. Many of the stories are the same in the Old Testament and Qu'uran (the great flood, Isaac's sacrifice, etc.).

Obviously, that did not work out too well this time around as we were blindsided by dirty politics, sleazy campaigning and slander.

WARD: Supporters unfair to Labrador

The Cooks are still beating the drum for the failed candidacy of Vaughn Ward, who was the candidate in search of an original thought. Not only did Mr. Ward plagiarize statements of several conservative politicians on his website, he had the temerity to mimic a 2004 speech of Barack Obama, Mr. Ward does not deny that it is he, shown in this video, only that he blames his now fired speech writer for the message he delivered. To blame Rep. Labrador for Ward's exposure is simplistic. Rumor has it, that Mr. Ward has moved to North Idaho to run against Phil Hart in two years. This video is still being viewed and the comments are current.

EPA: Has a place in Silver Valley

No one who looks at photos from 20 years ago then rides along the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes can deny that things are cleaner and greener. And there is no doubt that sites such as the Interstate Callahan continue to load the South Fork with historic mine waste that is a health hazard.

Going green ... tomatoes

MaryJane's Everyday Organic

Depending on where you live, you've already reeled in your green tomatoes, or you will soon. It's one of those rituals that signal the definitive end of summer, and it can be a sad day if your heart's not in it. But rather than mourn what you've lost, why not celebrate what you're getting? Green tomatoes don't have to collect dust in little newspaper graves just because you can't stomach the thought of frying even one more. Even the best songs get tiresome when overplayed, but green tomatoes are more than capable of learning a new tune.

Variable annuities are good investments - maybe

Annuities have become very popular investments over the last decade after overcoming a reputation as an expensive (high commission) and poor performing investment. Annuities are complex insurance contracts with an insurance company. There are basically two types, variable and fixed, with variable being the most popular. Variable annuity contracts may offer death benefit riders, which can provide a benefit for your heirs, and living benefit riders, which provide guarantees by the insurance company as to how much income you could withdraw from the policy later in a person's life. In the beginning years, fixed annuities were offered by insurance companies with the underlying assets of the insurance company supporting the annuity contract value. These products were profitable for the insurance company and commissions were paid to insurance agents.

Pursuit of profit has replaced morality

The law in the United States of America makes very clear that the responsibility of corporations is to conduct all business operations solely for the benefit of its stockholders. Given that harsh reality, can one rationally expect that the management of any corporation will hold itself accountable to any interest other than stockholders? The purpose of a business corporation is profit and nothing else. The fiduciary responsibility of corporate management logically subsumes any responsibility to interests other than stockholders. The only limits on management in such an environment are those that are imposed by statute. Absent such statutory limitations, management is not just free to pursue profit. Profit is its sole objective. Moral convictions hold little weight in a court of law.

I'm writing in response to the article on Oct. 13, 2010. regarding the hardships for seniors not receiving an increase in Social Security benefits for the second year in a row. Seniors, you are not alone; I'm still working and this will be my second year in a row to not have a wage increase - as well as countless others in this dreadful economy. (Wages here are pathetically low to begin with, but that's another article.) I know first hand - it hurts!

LABRADOR: He's the conservative

Sorting fact from election hype is difficult for even the most discerning voter. Raul Labrador, an attorney and legal immigrant to this country, has a legal practice where he helps clients obtain citizenship in a proper and legal manner. He does not advocate illegal immigration. The fact that part of his law practice is in immigration law is quite obviously a desire to help others achieve the American dream as he and his family did. His vocation should not be used as a reason to vote against him. His voting record in the state legislature is a reason to vote for him.

HART: Hypocrisy is his practice

Over the past couple months, I've been reading and watching the saga surrounding State Representative Phil Hart. He refuses to pay taxes - both federal and state; sits on the Idaho House Taxation committee; accepts a state of Idaho paycheck for his Rep. job; has his expenses of per deim and travel costs reimbursed from the state coffers; and enjoys the fiscal perks of being a state representative. He seems to have no problem putting Idaho state tax money into his wallet but doesn't want to pay any Idaho taxes out of it - like the rest of us have to do. And because he is a state legislator on the Taxation Committee, he is exempted from paying taxes while enjoying the state reimbursement for his representative office that we taxpayers pay for.

JOBS: Let's rebuild the nation

I was just thinking about what might help put our country back into a working, prosperous mode again. Looking back over a 40-year career in the engineering field and having had the opportunity to work on some very large projects for the Aerospace, Petro/Chem, Power and Nuclear industries for both the department of energy and the department of defense. I realized how many people had made the decision to relocate to various locations of the United States to work on these projects. Engineering, construction and all the related disciplines required thousands and thousands of people to accomplish the completion of these projects and operate them. As a result, all the relocated families required homes to live in which usually caused quite a population growth and building boom. The building boom caused a huge impact on manufacturing of building materials. Think of all the things it takes to build a house. Many businesses were built in the area to supply all the items to build these homes.

They see that while they were busy raising family and building businesses or careers and minding their own business, a small core of power brokers had taken their country down a dangerous path, a path that had strayed from the principles and values that Americans hold dear.

There is a collective anguish that occurs whenever we read about a child being attacked. I wept when I read about the 3-year-old girl in St. Maries who was nearly killed by her mother's boyfriend.

Along with the pain comes anger and the wonder about how a family could possibly not know, how people who surround a child fail to come to its aid. I never dreamt that those questions would be asked publicly about my family and that I would find my daughter being censured under the harsh light of media criticism.

STRAHORN: Case of being second class

This is a vote for Mr. Murphy. Well said! I have used Strahorn Avenue for more than 25 years to get home. What a surprise to find I had been kicked off the street. Why all of a sudden are those of us who live on north Strahorn second class citizens? First it was the speed bumps and now the blockade. However, you have set an interesting precedent. Now anyone who wishes can put speed bumps in front of their homes and can get together with the neighbors and reroute traffic at will. This might present a bit of a challenge for our school bus drivers, but those good folks can roll with the punches anyway.

BELL: Thanks to entire community

Recently I was diagnosed with lobular breast cancer and underwent a total mastectomy. Probably because of my position as president of North Idaho College and because my surgery coincided with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, The Press prominently reported my disease. At first, I was embarrassed by the story - after all, it is unfortunately true that many people have or have had cancers far more insidious than mine. But when I learned that several women, after reading the story, contacted The Press to say that they had scheduled mammograms, I understood the positive nature of the story. I am grateful to The Press for calling people's attention to the disease and what women can do to help themselves. And I thank The Press, too, for the recent editorial expressing wishes for my full recovery.

GOP: Separating fact, not friction

Oh how I love it. The screams, the whining, the outrageously incorrect distortions of the truth that the liberals are issuing in the face of what looks like a coming disastrous (for them) election next month. Lacking any real facts to promote their agenda they resort to these tactics. Jimmy Pappas and Mike Martens are examples with their hilarious attempts to make the Republicans and the conservative TV commentators look like liars. The truth hurts doesn't it guys?

GOP: Balancing the leftist spin

This is in response to comments made by Chad Solsvik in his letter to the editor printed in the Coeur d'Alene Press on Sept. 29. Mr. Solsvik claims to "decode" some "Republican speak," wherein he offers his own translations of certain conservative agendas. Among the items on his list are the Bush tax cuts, which he decodes to mean: "Borrow $700 billion from China to give to billionaires."

STRAHORN: Action makes street safer

This letter is in response to Michael J. Murphy's diatribe of Sept. 29 concerning the recent change on Strahorn Avenue between Miles and Hayden Avenue in Hayden Lake to a one-way street. He likens the residents on this section of Strahorn to "Beverly Hills wannabees." Are you kidding me! This section of Strahorn is narrow, rough and bumpy and was barely safe for two cars to pass by each other.

ACCIDENT: Driver apologizes for mishap

HILL: Case smacks of injustice

POLITICS: Extremes are squeezing middle

I'm getting really tired of the media circus effort to paint the Republicans as the ultra far right when the vast majority are somewhere in the middle. I'm also tired of the far right trying to paint the Democrats as the far left. Any reasonably sane person understands that Obama is a U.S. citizen, a Christian, and didn't try to take our gun rights away.

OBAMA: Won't be fooled again

Like most Americans, I have been shocked by the fact that I was completely ignorant of the background, qualifications and "face" of Barack Obama, elected by the people as our president. I have known that I was 100 percent against the theme that by spending billions of dollars that we didn't have, we could restore the economy, guarantee prosperity and create millions of new jobs. My background and intuitive thinking clearly defied the success of such process.

Saying goodbye too soon

A storyteller by trade, sometimes life presents something that causes words to fail. Such as this past week since learning of the death of my young friend, Sam Mann.Like hundreds of people who knew Sam personally and/or professionally in his career as a personal fitness trainer I've alternated between being really angry at him and in tears with a broken heart. That's the to-be-expected result of a suicide, the emotional debris field that's left in the wake of a decision made from the depths of despair that's hard to comprehend.

It's harvest time for food

Food for Thought

Autumn in North Idaho revives one's soul. Spring and summer days filled with casually planting, weeding, mowing, mulching and trimming finally offer the bounty nurtured from seed six months ago. It's harvest time. Picking tomatoes, zucchini, pumpkins, cucumbers, onions, herbs and peppers on a crisp, dew filled fall morning create the need for an active kitchen in the afternoon. My wife and I spent our day making then freezing tomato soup, baking zucchini bread, drying hot peppers and picking the remaining cucumbers and zucchini as the vines wither from exhaustion.
