To control yourself, let it go

A recent news blurb announced that an unprecedented one-third of Americans are facing debt collectors, implying that our hyper-consuming society is in default. We certainly tend to live beyond our means. We are rarely satisfied, always looking for the next "fix" - be it drug-induced escape, the latest gadget, a newer car, or more calories, coverings, and trappings far in excess of what we require.

Huckleberry tradition

"That is a great smell," I slowly and deliberately whisper to my wife while deeply engulfing my first whiff of huckleberry as we hike to our secret picking patch. I am not sure why I whisper. As most huckleberry pickers know, the safe and sane method of huckleberry picking is to make as much noise as possible to alert the potential bear searching for the same delicious berry I crave.

Decline in civic literacy threatens the Republic

The national celebration of Independence Day, marked by parades, picnics and fireworks, not to mention political speeches long on rhetoric and short on content, was characterized in words displayed on countless banners and floats: "keep our freedom." But that trumpet call seems increasingly meaningless - and unattainable - in light of disturbing studies revealing a lack of knowledge among the citizenry of the civics platform on which our nation was founded, and the tools necessary to preserve constitutional government. America needs a remedy, and fast.

Cholesterol controversy: Part II

What about eating cholesterol making your cholesterol go up? That was debunked clear back in the 1990s, yet it is still perpetuated. According to a report from the Harvard School of Public Health, "The amount of cholesterol in food is not very strongly linked to cholesterol levels in the blood." We now know that blood levels of cholesterol are mostly determined by metabolism - how the body makes, uses and disposes of cholesterol. In fact, cholesterol is so essential, the body makes most of its own. The brain and liver make about 1,500 mg/day, yet the "experts" recommend an upper limit dietary intake of cholesterol at 300mg/day! If the body makes that much of its own, it's obvious that we need a lot. And we do.

Advisers in Iraq put their lives on the line

The United States has sent 300 advisers to Iraq to bolster Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) battling the invading ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) militant group. ISIL is known for its brutal violence directed at Shia Muslims and Christians. The offensive by ISIL has caused many of ISF to flee their posts and allowed ISIL to control of major parts of northern and western Iraq through force or fear. In recent events, ISIL has gained control over Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, and has issued an order for Christians in the 1,600-year-old Christian community to "convert to Islam, leave, or die." Baghdad is their goal, and the group has grown from 3,000 to 20,000 soldiers who impose Sharia law and is rebranded as the "Islamic State." To stem the tide and strengthen ISF to repel the invaders, the aim of advisers is to make the ISF capable of conducting independent counterinsurgency operations, tactically, operationally, and logistically.

Sen. Crapo wants to hear from N. Idaho veterans

The men and women of our Armed Forces face many challenges as they protect our nation. Because of the unique challenges they face and solemn sacrifices they make, Congress must support the needs of service members both on the battlefield and upon their return. The recent exposure of the mistreatment of veterans seeking assistance through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) again underscores the need to improve the delivery of assistance to our nation’s veterans. The scandals prove that the stakes are high: Congress must get VA reform right this time. As I work with my congressional colleagues to address the needs of our nation’s veterans, the policies I advocate must have a meaningful impact on our veterans in Idaho. In an effort to improve my understanding of veterans’ needs, I invite Idahoans to share their VA experiences with me through a brief survey.

He reviewed all the cases of law the class had studied and had found nothing that he felt was appropriate on such an important occasion.

CRISIS: Let's build our own center

Two articles in the Cd’A Press highlighted the fallacy, short-sightedness, deafness, and pure mental laziness of certain Republican politicians. In their ideological pursuit of no spending, they have cost Idaho taxpayers millions more by their no-vote for funding for three mental health crisis centers, leading to the loss of one of those for Kootenai County. Knowledgeable professionals in the law enforcement, judicial, and health communities lobbied their legislators - no, their politicians - to no avail. Several legislators, like Rep. Morse and Sen. Goedde, who did put the interests of all Idahoans first, were voted out of office by a minority of ultra-conservative voters, amply and implicitly aided by those voters of all political stripes who chose to not vote. The likes of Rep. Vito Barbieri are now running for office. If that political contingent of the Republican party is elected, we can look backward to find out exactly what they will do: Vote no on any sensible investment in the state’s educational, health, and infrastructure systems, which are, of course, the foundation of a sound and sustainable economy.

Women's monthly 'feel better' solutions

We've been told that PMS (pre-menstrual syndrome), PMDD (pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder) and other hormonal imbalances are "normal" parts of a woman's cycle. Yet not every woman experiences them. It is said that 80 percent of menstruating women have experienced one or more symptoms commonly associated with menstrual disorders. That's a lot of women! But, WHY is that? Is it "normal" or "common"? I say, common, not normal.

Leaky gut and autoimmune disease

It is well-known that the immune system drives the inflammatory process in disease. Unfortunately, western medicine has very little to offer when it comes to managing or overcoming the autoimmune process. The typical medical approach is to suppress the immune system and inflammation with medications, but the drugs used to accomplish this do not stop the underlying disease process. Autoimmune disease is considered incurable.

DOG: Shooting details whitewashed

Wake up and watch a whitewash by cops in the dog shooting. This cop should be fired — no second chance. There isn’t enough paper in the world for this nut case to give a good reason for shooting the dog. I think this cop was trained in Spokane. Shoot first. This will be a big whitewash. Any time a cop fires his gun, it’s a good shoot. What about the woman in Sandpoint who was shot and killed? She had a knife. What happened, did they forget to bring batteries for their stun gun? WHITEWASH.

ISSUES: There's always two sides

Mr. Gressler, I would like to thank you for your service to our country, despite your apparent disillusionment with the conflict in which you served. While I have never served in combat, or for that matter, in the military, I know many people who have, including a number of Vietnam veterans. While my opinions about military issues may hold no water for you, my opinions are shared and validated by most of the combat veterans I know. I’m glad you have received good care through the VA over the years. Many others have been less fortunate. While I do not work for an insurance company, and as imperfect as our healthcare system is, I defy you to find another nation of comparable size that has healthcare as good, or better than, ours.

Sometimes journalists have good intentions, but miss an important part of the story. I believe that happened with Jeff Selle’s story on July 6 about the North Idaho Water Rights adjudication. The part of his story about preventing people from holding water rights as investments sounded good. So did the parts about the Coeur d’Alene Tribe merely protecting the lake and mostly filing “very, very small” claims for wetlands. But did Jeff read the actual language in the claims the government has filed for the tribe? It paints a very, very different picture.

Rising rates on horizon, but how far?

On the heels of the announcement that May was one of the best months in recent history for pending sales of homes comes the Federal Reserve Bank's announcement that Quantitative Easing round three is coming to an end causing fear that interest rates will rise. In fact, interest rates did rise slightly last week - up five one hundredths of a percent. Whether this trend will continue for the short term is hard to say but the uptick in Treasury Bond yields indicates that mortgage rates may have seen the last of their new bottom rates established last month. As of market close on Friday, the yield on Treasury Bonds was up by 0.16 percent from a day earlier. Since mortgage rates are directly affected by these yields, we can anticipate incremental increases to those rates as well.

Powerful stories fill the news reminding us of the magnitude of our need for mental health services locally and nationwide.

The “crisis center legislation” provides for a physical location for individuals to go when they are in crisis due to mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders. Crisis centers decrease the utilization of hospital emergency rooms and jails for this population and may even replace short hospitalizations.

I recently met with a representative of the Post Falls Park & Recreation Department regarding the elimination of the annual boat launch fee at Q’emilin Park (Parks & Rec is now choosing instead to charge each user the full fee each time). When I asked why it was not offered this year, it was stated that it was because they could not guarantee people a parking spot, largely due to the present Avista construction. I then countered that no one has ever had a guaranteed spot, as it has always been first come, first serve. I was then told that the city fields so many complaints from people who think they have purchased a guaranteed spot, that it seemed easier to eliminate the pass than deal with the complaints — which is what this is really about — not having to deal with the public.

Hobby Lobby decision: What it really means

In the past week there have been amazing and hysterical ravings about the Hobby Lobby decision. On these pages we were treated to a cartoon of a big fish, "Corporations," about to bite down on a smaller fish, labeled "Individual Rights." Literary lights like Nancy Pelosi termed the decision "outrageous" because it permitted "corporations to choose which laws to obey." Hillary Clinton theorized "companies will claim religious beliefs and some will be sincere. And we're going to see this valuable service cut out from many many women." The artist and these political figures either did not read the opinion or relied on secondary sources, equally unenlightened, or were, unfortunately, prevaricating.

Sports hernia

Sports hernia does not fit the common definition of a "hernia," where an organ or soft tissue protrudes outside its normal cavity. There is no defect in the abdominal wall or herniation of the abdominal contents with a sports hernia. Injury occurs in the form of tears and weakening in the deep layers of the abdominal wall. Other common terms for a sports hernia include "sportsman's hernia" and "hockey groin."

RULING: On further review…

With regard to the letter from the CEO of Planned Parenthood in Washington, he needs to read the Supreme Court decision about Hobby Lobby. It only concerns 4 out of 20 contraceptives — mostly abortives (morning after pill). They do not believe in abortion as a lot of people in this country also do not. You should ask him how much money he makes every year from our government for terminating lives!

Make a trade

When I was growing up, summer was always a time that we played cards - any type of cards. We played by the pool, at the dock, on the beach, and sprawled out on the porch. Anywhere that we might have a chance to play, we did. My favorite game was gin rummy. Not sure why - maybe it was the strategy or the luck of the draw, or maybe it was because of all the laughter that happened when we played cards. You see, when I play cards it is such fun that at first, I had no idea I was actually learning a skill that would help me all of my life. I was learning how to make a trade.

Most people think of health as the state of "not being sick." The truth is, even healthy children get sick. Healthy kids can still get colds, earaches, rashes, sore throats, flus, and coughs. Most of these illnesses are self-limiting, meaning they will heal on their own if untreated, and are signs of a strong immune response.

This big girl had a rough time of it. "Fifi," the world's only flying B-29 Superfortress, was a World War II hero, a latecomer who flew crucial missions in the Pacific Theater. As many as 1,000 B-29s at one time bombed Tokyo. These massive bombers - with a longer range of 5,830 miles and bigger bomb load than its predecessors the B-17 and B-24 - dropped the war-ending bombs on Hiroshima (the "Enola Gay") and, three days later, Nagasaki ("Bockscar").

An important tool for elk recovery in the Panhandle

There is an urgent need to change Idaho's wolf trapping regulations so a longer interval is permitted between the checking of a trapper's snares. Presently that interval is 72 hours or three days. It needs to be expanded to 15 days. That one small change to the regulations could increase the efficiency for those trappers who utilize snares in taking wolves which, in turn, is so important in achieving a more favorable balance between wolves and our ungulate herds of elk, moose and deer. Some states have no snare check requirement (Montana and Alaska) and the only Canadian Province requiring one is British Columbia with a 14-day interval.

Enjoyed the column in Tuesday’s Press about the editor meeting Derrek Lee. I, too, am a lifelong Cubs fan growing up in middle Indiana, then living in Chicago for seven years (before lights in Wrigley stadium). My all time favorite player was Adolfo Phillips ... shoulda, coulda, woulda! I’ve never been a fair weather fan for any of my sporting teams due to my love of the Cubs! I met Ferguson Jenkins once and I, too, will never forget it!

VETERANS: How much is too much?

As House and Senate negotiators conference on their respective bills to revamp the Department of Veterans Affairs, many conservatives are taking note of the egregious mandatory spending proposal outlined in the original Senate bill. The call to expand private care benefits for veterans amounts to an entitlement that may very well grow on autopilot into the distant future, running up a tab on U.S. taxpayers that could total more than $50 billion per year.

This one has things like higher utility bills from running the A/C and needing to do extra watering to keep the lawn green and garden going. It's a trade-off, what can I say?

RULING: Blow to American women

On Monday, June 30, the Supreme Court ruled against American women and families — giving bosses the right to discriminate against women and deny their employees access to birth control coverage. This ruling establishes a dangerous new precedent that private, for-profit corporations can interfere with access or refuse to provide legally mandated coverage to basic preventive care for their employees, based on nothing other than the owners’ personal beliefs.

FLAG: Old Glory is upside down

Both my wife and I are honorably discharged United States Navy veterans. We love God, this country, our flag and what it represents, dearly. When a child faces expulsion from school for being honest, and government officials continue to receive our tax dollars for alleged continual lies and deception, we have come to realize our beloved nation has been thrown into a state of distress by our so-called leaders. This Saturday, June 14, is National Flag Day. A day that serves deep within my soul to give honor to the banner I love, and stand to believe represents truth, liberty, and justice. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be moved to do or even say this; on Saturday, June 14, 2014, and for that day only, I will be presenting Old Glory, upside down, as a distress call to my fellow countrymen as to how I understand the current direction of our country, the United States of America, under it’s current ‘leadership’ to be traveling. This will be a somber event for me to perform as I strive to adhere to flag etiquette as much as possible. May God Bless the United States of America, land that I love. On June 15 I will return my United States flag to proper display status. (Sent June 12, 2014.)

What is wrong with me? So often, people come in and say, "I have this symptom. What's wrong? I also have this symptom and this and this - what's wrong?" Typically, they've seen several doctors, or one or two doctors several times, insisting something is wrong, but the doctor says, "You're fine." The tests are negative, therefore, "Nothing is wrong with you." But you know there is. These are symptoms you don't usually have, or have had for a long time, but didn't at some point in your life. It isn't "normal." What is one to do?

Dentistry and pregnancy

Little Lindsey will be our fifth child, so by this point we are pretty used to the routine. But I can still remember a time when this was all new to us, and we had a lot of questions. We were worried that we might inadvertently do something during the pregnancy that could endanger my wife or the new baby. And while I am not qualified to answer most of these questions, there is one area where I feel confident in proclaiming my expertise. Dentistry. What dental work is appropriate, and what isn't during the time of pregnancy? This article will hit on a few of the most questioned areas.

Needless to say, we could make quite a commotion and not on purpose, but since they are all two years apart, that's just the way it was.

The Chardonnay article

Based on domestic sales statistics, the two most purchased and consumed varietal wines are Cabernet and Chardonnay. According to Wine Spectator, an impressive 20 percent of all wine consumed domestically is Chardonnay. No doubt that some of this consumer demand is comfort. Many of us, when out to eat, will start with a wine by the glass, and Chardonnay is the easy order to place. We know what to expect - from most domestic producers, it is straightforward and easy drinking. But that doesn't account for all of the sustained popularity of the grape.
