Today's ghastly groaner

The other day I decided to bake a cake, and so I set to work in the kitchen. I discovered that I didn’t have any butter, so I sent my dog to buy some. On the way, he passed a bookstore and, being intrigued by a display in the window, he went in and came home with a dog-eared book of poems. The point of my story is: Never send a literary dog to the grocery store because he’ll get verse before he gets butter.

A FATHER'S FIGHT Part Two: A Family Shattered

In the beginning, more than a decade ago, there was just Doug Bressie, a single dad who owned a Post Falls plumbing business as he raised three children between Post Falls and the family retreat — a log cabin near the small logging town of Emida, 30 miles south of St. Maries. He was in the process of building a house there, with a valley view, not far from Sanders Road.

Don't redial, lettuce worries and kudos

NO REDIAL: When you get a call to your landline and the caller does not leave a message and you don’t recognize the Caller ID of the caller — DON’T push the “auto redial” number. When you do this, you make yourself a “gift” to spam callers and salespeople everywhere. This week, one consumer wrote me a long, involved, very precise email asking how spam callers got her number and why the same number keeps calling her back (usually she’s not home). The reason they keep calling her back is that they have and use Caller ID to determine when they have a “live one” on the line. Without realizing it, they are engaging the spam callers in a game of phone tag. MY ADVICE: Never return spam, or unknown calls — NEVER!

Concerning the Schneidmiller development adding 429 more homes. They claim they did a proper master planning and it isn’t right they should have to pay for the traffic study. Maybe they did, but that was in 1993, 25 years ago. Gee, I wonder what has changed?

The proper  role of  government

The proper role of government

What should be done by government and what should be done by private enterprise? The Founding Fathers wrestled with this question. Our Declaration of Independence articulates that our Rights “are endowed by (our) Creator” and “That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men.” The preamble of The Constitution tells us its purpose is to “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the blessings of Liberty.” These, therefore are the reasons our government should be focused on these tasks.

LITTLE: Experience counts

In this upcoming election, there is only one clear choice for the next governor of Idaho. Brad Little is far and away the most qualified candidate in this race and will provide the leadership Idaho needs moving forward. As a rancher and businessman, Brad understands the proper role of government to allow for economic opportunity and prosperity. He has taken his background in private industry into government to ensure good, strong conservative leadership for the state. As a senator and Lt. Governor, he is the only candidate with both legislative and business experience, which will be key in assuring success as Idaho’s chief executive.

When I was a teenager in 1957 the Governor of Arkansas used the police and even threatened to use his National Guard to stop black students from integrating the segregated schools of his state. President Eisenhower nationalized the entire 10,000 Arkansas National Guard force and moved them out of the state to U.S. military posts to stop any possibility of a standoff with the 101st Airborne troops he sent to protect the black students.

POWER: Doesn't add up

My husband and I went to visit my parents in another state a few weeks ago. Both my husband and I are experienced in maintenance and construction. Before we left the house, we did everything to save electricity and hence, money. The night before we left, we cleaned out our refrigerator. I was once a refrigeration mechanic. We didn’t unplug it but we got rid of every last item of food and then cleansed it with vinegar and baking soda. Then we turned it off. We unplugged the television. We turned off all the heat sources. My husband turned off the water at the box, not at the valve in our house. Then, we drained all our lines. We turned off the hot-water heater (electric). There was nothing else to run electrically except our battery-operated fire detectors.

When he retired and before becoming a State Senator, he formed an organization that helps wounded veterans return to civilian life, go to college and get jobs. He is the only person running for the position of Lt. Governor who has served our country in the military.

The Hauser Lake area qualifies (for now) as one of North Idaho’s most underrated locales.

That’s a nice feeling for most Idahoans.

Climate change a real threat … just ask our military

Les Atchley’s March 23 My Turn piece, “Be cautious about spending trillions on climate change,” raises some interesting points. When I looked into his sources of information, though, they raised some disturbing questions as well. For example, PragerU isn’t an academic institution (even though it sounds like it); it’s a “conservative digital media organization,” according to Wikipedia. And one of its largest donors is the fracking billionaire Wilks brothers. So PragerU is pushing the continued use of fossil fuels and has a financial stake in the matter. Readers should be aware of that bias toward fossil fuels and minimizing action on climate change, especially if it involves reining in fossil fuel interests.

JAIL: Inmate being persecuted

I am currently detained pending trial in the Kootenai County Jail. I am housed in administrative segregation, where an Amish man in the cell next to mine, Earl Groff, is being persecuted because of his religion. He is regularly refused meals, is not allowed to mail letters, and is not allowed access to his attorney because his religion does not allow him to wear a uniform. On April 11th, I witnessed deputies refuse to provide him both lunch and dinner because he refused to don the jail uniform. On April 12th, he was informed that his attorney was there to see him. (He is represented by a Public Defender.) He again refused to wear a uniform, so he was not allowed to visit with the attorney. The Amish religion requires modesty, so he uses the sheet and blanket the jail provided him to keep himself clothed as best he can under the circumstances. He is here pending trial for a misdemeanor charge, but apparently the presumption of innocence means nothing here. When he attempts to mail letters seeking help, he is told he may not access the service cart, where letters are accepted for mailing, unless he wears a jail uniform.

GUNS: Not the problem

With all the tragic events that seem to be occurring much more frequently, many point the finger at guns as being the problem. I would agree guns are the vehicle used in many of these tragic events but they have also used bombs and vehicles to do their damage. There also seems to be an increase in violence towards police and an escalation in the number of suicides. I believe the real culprit for these increases is society and its values, not guns.

They would think they know more than most about things like...the internet and Facebook. They would not even know when they ask stupid questions during hearings.

Smile! That teeth-whitening offer might be a scam

An employee of a local grocery store called me with a story I found hard to believe. It seems that a woman wearing scrubs, the clothing that staffs of doctors and dentists sometimes wear, was wandering around the food store, selling teeth whitening services. The reported offer was to sell an individual a coupon for $60 that would entitle the buyer to a discount of hundreds of dollars on their teeth whitening. The person peddling these coupons, by wearing medical attire, was clearly attempting to give the impression that they themselves were employed in the medical arts. I don’t know that they weren’t, but I have my doubts.

Sheep returned to Owyhees in 1960s now a strong population

Once plentiful when settlers arrived in what would become southwest Idaho, a rapid decline of bighorn sheep in the 1800s resulted in a near-extinct population in the first quarter of the 20th century.

The question of citizenship should rightfully be included in the census. A person should proudly proclaim that he/she is a legal citizen.

Your most important wine dollar

The 2014 Harlan Estate Cabernet will release this month for $1,500 per bottle. A bit later in the spring, Domaine de la Romanée-Conti will arrive. There is little doubt it will touch $2,000 per bottle for the current vintage. Are the wines delicious? You bet. I can say this with certainty for both of them even though I have only experienced one of them during my wine journey. Are they worth that price tag? I’ll leave that up to the collectors who pursue them each year.

Minerals: The foundation of function

The foundation of all life is minerals. Minerals provide a rich substance for the life of plants, which then give us humans, as well as animals, insects and most life forms, life. When the body is “returned to the dust,” what remains are different forms of calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, sodium and silica. But all minerals have intrinsic value in the health of our bodies and our minds.

FULCHER: A servant leader

I encourage you to join me in voting for Russ Fulcher for Congress because he has shown himself to be a servant leader who has our interests at heart. Having served as a leader in the Idaho Senate, Russ has conservative bona fides. For instance, Russ championed the Grocery Tax Credit, returning more than $600 million to Idaho’s working families since implementation. He passed more pro-life legislation than any other legislator in recent Idaho history. On the issue of the Second Amendment, Russ has an A+ rating from the NRA. With regard to the economy, Russ’s international and local real-world business experience and acumen will serve him well in helping Congress facilitate further economic growth.

One thing we can all agree on is that we want our children to have a bright future. One of the most important issues the Idaho Legislature works on every year is how to best build and support a strong educational system that will enable a better future for our children. After a whirlwind three-month legislative session down in Boise, I am pleased to report that there were several critical education-related successes that will benefit our Idaho children for years to come. Overall, the Legislature invested nearly $100 million in new funding for education in Idaho and made some policy improvements in areas such as early literacy instruction and assessment, career-technical education, and college and career advising.

In reply to almost every single letter we have sent to the Congressman, his reply has contained wording to this effect: “I support veterans/national defense and when a bill comes before the House I will give it very serious consideration. …” Everyone is aware that when a bill in the House is reported out of committee and sent to the floor it is generally in its final form. There is little or no further negotiating on that bill.

HAMMURABI: He'd be insulted

I take serious exception to the ridiculous assertion made by Mr. James Crowe in his letter to The Press of April 18. In no way can the Law Codes of Hammurabi be understood as building codes. His codex refers to after the fact of construction, akin to what in today’s culture and language are essentially liability issues, whether or not building codes are in place. Quite to the contrary, building codes focus on prevention, before and during construction.

Idaho has always been home. I was born in Grangeville, and raised in the small central Idaho town Kooskia—where my Dad hunted and fished for our family’s subsistence.  Secret huckleberry patches discovered by my Father during his years of service to the Forest Service still remain closely guarded family secrets. After I graduated from Clearwater Valley High School, I moved to Moscow to attend the U of I where I would earn Bachelor’s degrees in Chemistry and Spanish and meet my husband Brock—another Idaho native from Middleton, ID, suburb of Boise. We moved to Coeur d’ Alene in 2005, and our son Brady was born in 2007. I currently work as a personal trainer at a local gym, and my husband Brock works as a technical recruiter for an Idaho owned small business.

Good advice. We should always be civil, of course, but political opinions can be so hard to understand these days. I suspect it was easier in the time of Honest Abe than it is now with Dishonest Don in the White House. It’s hard to understand, first of all, how this lying, homophobic, narcissistic womanizer ever won an election to any office, much less the presidency. And on the Republican ticket yet? I mean this guy doesn’t exactly exemplify good ol’ GOP family values. Or even liberal values, for that matter. (It gets pretty ugly.) And yet, in a recent poll, 61 percent of Republicans gave Trump thumbs up as a good role model for their children!

That 'Census Bureau' letter does smell kind of fishy

Many consumers in our area have been receiving letters purporting to be from the U.S. Census Bureau. Unfortunately, the letters request that you provide personal information, including your name, full address AND Social Security number. I have called the telephone number listed on these letters and I either get a “fast busy,” indicating that the number is not in service, or a person who represents themselves as an employee of the U.S. Census Bureau who becomes very threatening and belligerent when I balk at giving out my Social Security number. They usually hang up after failing to intimidate the caller into handing over personal information.

All Idaho voters should vote in May 15 primary

The upcoming elections are the most consequential for Idaho in a generation. The Governor’s race, in particular, will affect our state’s future as we work through perennial challenges, such as ensuring our schools and systems of higher education are strong. Idaho’s new governor will also have to lead us through the complex challenges of our day, such as the opioid epidemic, declining school readiness for incoming kindergarteners, and the state’s aging infrastructure. I encourage all Idahoans to get educated about the candidates and vote in the primary election on May 15 when the top candidates for each political party will be selected. This election is the first step in selecting our next governor, and perhaps even more significant than the general election.

More thunderstorms than normal expected this season

April has arrived, and we’ve already had one thunderstorm in the Coeur d’Alene area, which occurred on March 20. Although we do get our share of thunder, lightning, hail and even a rare tornado, the severity of these storms does not compare to the ones seen east of the Rockies, especially in the Great Plains and Midwest’s “Tornado Alley.”

Scammers don't give up easily

One reader got a number of calls purporting to be from his Visa card company. The fake company, and would be scammer, called the cardholder early on a Saturday morning, informing him that a suspicious charge was made to his Visa card from a location in India. He immediately went online and checked his account. There was no such charge.

BILL: Research doesn't matter

First, let me thank the six senators who voted against SB 1313. Studies have shown that, controlling for all other relevant factors, states that have passed “stand your ground” laws have seen an increase in homicide rates (Hoekstra, 2013; Humphreys et al., 2016, among many others).

STUDENTS: Don't undermine them

Tens of thousands of teens across the country are standing up for common sense gun reform. Throughout their childhood, they’ve read of mass shootings in schools, churches, outdoor concerts. They’ve grown up practicing active-shooter drills in their classrooms. Gun violence is the reality they know could invade their lives on any given day.

BROOKS: Column's a keeper

Because of that, when we received a phone call that sounded suspicious, we didn’t call the number we were instructed to call, but called Bill Brooks instead. He very graciously listened to my story and then quickly assured me that this was indeed a scam.

GARBAGE: Build the wall

I have an idea to build President Trump’s wall and clean up the ocean’s garbage. It is estimated the Pacific garbage gyre is 8 trillion tons, the size of Texas and growing. The U.S. Navy has a fleet of mothballed LSTs in the San Francisco Bay Area. The LST’s (Landing Ship Tank) duty is to transport tanks, trucks and equipment and deliver its cargo onto shore. The bow of an LST rotates down to make an access ramp for loading and unloading its cargo.

CODE: There's trouble ahead

The other night I was having dinner with a friend of my son’s. He was in town looking at the possibility of moving to this area, and when I asked what he did, he stated he was a building inspector. I asked what he thought of the recent decision by two of our three county commissioners to rid Kootenai County of building codes in the rural areas. He literally dropped his fork in mid-sentence, and asked me if I was kidding. I assured him I was not and then explained what took place at the public meeting on March 19; he was stunned.

ADVICE: Well said, Marvin

This is in response to Marvin Miller’s letter from March 28. What great, common sense advice you gave your granddaughter when she asked your opinion on financial matters as she prepares to enter the workforce. If more people would take this advice, they would have a more enjoyable and less stressful life. Thanks!
