AP: Tell the story

The Associated Press has outdone itself. Last Sunday they went on and on using 624 words to avoid saying something about anything. I cannot believe there is anyone on the planet who does not know why the Mormon Church wants to change its name to Latter-day Saints. Of course, the reason is because of the church’s history of polygamy.

LETTERS: The story they tell

The give and take in The Press’s LTE section is a perfect example of the tribal thinking that is so common today in the U.S. This is especially vivid if one follows the give and take of the comments, replies and further replies following many of the letters on cdapress.com. The most salient features of those exchanges is the nastiness and name calling and most importantly the absence of facts or the presentation of unsupported, so-called facts.

JORDAN: Articles informative

Thanks for the articles on Democratic Governor hopeful Paulette Jordan. I found them most enlightening. Mr. Day’s and Mr. Waring’s letters protesting the article were not warranted. Any objective reading of the articles could lead to only one conclusion: Paulette Jordan’s qualifications for governor were she would be the first woman and Native American elected as governor of Idaho.

TRUMP: Counting his successes

What about Trump? I opposed him in the primaries because of his past until he was the only Republican left. But he is a changed man morally like Saul of Tarsus, Augustine of Hippo and Jihadist Walid Shoebat, now a Christian pastor. (Incidentally, those in Muslim lands are converting faster than any other group.*) I praise God for Trump.

Back pain: Bulging discs

When most people think of acupuncture, they think of it as a solution to pain or addictions. While that is certainly accurate, acupuncture effectively treats so many more things than that.

Today I’d like to cover a specific type of pain — back pain, and more specifically yet, bulging discs.

Air quality late last week was in the unhealthy category once again with readings above 150. Parts of eastern Washington and North Idaho briefly had air qualities in the “hazardous” category.

What questions should you ask the recruiter during a job interview?

When a recruiter asks you if you have any questions, do you have trouble knowing which questions to ask? First of all, it’s better to save questions about vacation time and benefits for the second or even the third interview. In order to demonstrate your interest in the position, make a good impression and ensure that the job and the company are actually a good fit for you, ask for specifics regarding the nature of the work and the company.

We should all reflect on what it means to be an American and never take for granted the sacrifices that many have bravely made to secure our freedom. When I was 20, I enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps. Serving in the military is not only a sacrifice for the person enlisted but also for the entire family.

It is a bit hard to believe, but we are fast approaching harvest of the 2018 wine grape crop for appellations in the Northern Hemisphere. In just a matter of weeks we will be in the heart of harvest, so it seems like a good time to update news on this year’s crop from around the world. This is the time that is perhaps the most frightening for wine grape growers and winemakers alike. Regardless of what has transpired so far this year, this is when it all gets very serious — when the quality of the grape crop will be determined and decisions become vitally important. From sunburn, to mold and rot. From rain, to fall frosts and smoke. All that mother nature can serve up that could jeopardize the crop is now the focus of everyone in the wine industry.

The National Weather Service and Australia's Bureau Of Meteorology

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been staying in Melbourne, Australia. The food here is quite good and it’s a place that I’ve always wanted to see. I’m in the middle of their winter season in Australia, so it’s been quite chilly. During my stay, I had the opportunity to see and talk with fellow meteorologists at the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. I was fortunately enough to receive a private tour and learned a great deal about the operations of Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology versus the National Weather Service here in the U.S.

Left out in the cold (water)

About three years ago, a consumer, not a member of Kootenai County Electric co-op, bought a super duper brand new water heater from Kootenai Electric Cooperative. Because he was not a member (he lives in the Silver Valley), he had to pay more than members of the co-op pay for the H2O heater. No problem.

In this position, Ruben learned how to handle customers and employees in a courteous, professional manner.

Is America flirting with ethnic cleansing?

It certainly appears that our great country is embarking on a program to deny entry to immigrants of color and to expel many who are already here, even if they entered legally. The program has two components--a publicity effort to besmirch refugees and other immigrants, and wide-ranging governmental actions to reduce the immigrant population. It takes on the look of an ethnic cleansing of this wonderful immigrant nation.

Why am I so tired?

Fatigue is probably the number one reason why people seek alternative care. Too often, when they say to their doctor “I am so tired!” the doctor hears “I am depressed” and puts them on antidepressants (most of which have a side effect of fatigue). Other physicians rightfully run a battery of tests, beginning with lab tests to try to find an answer. They are mostly looking for anemia, Vitamin D deficiency, B12 deficiency, or signs of disease. When these tests show “within reference range,” they too are either told they are just depressed, or “there is nothing wrong.”

The elementary teacher listed at $89,000 is actually two teachers with the same last name, according to district officials.

His relentless attack on the media may well incite violence against journalists, and it is beneath the dignity of the Office of the Presidency.

Still miles to go on educators' pay

Progress? Absolutely. However, Idaho cannot afford to rest on its laurels regarding compensation for our professional educators or thinking that we have adequately addressed the causes of our teacher shortage. Recent studies have painted varying pictures of Idaho’s education funding and educator compensation levels, prompting responses from both the State Department of Education and the State Board of Education. Each of these responses highlights improvement, but stops short of addressing some key areas of concern that Idaho officials need to keep in mind.

Six years ago, the government and auto makers agreed that cars made in the 2025 model year should get an average of 54.5 miles per gallon (mpg). The President plans to reduce the mileage standard to 37 miles per gallon. Lowering the mpg target would hit drivers hard in the pocketbook and cause serious harm to the environment.

Neck pain can be disruptive to your life. Cervical spine imbalances and structural changes are quite common in individuals who have been injured from motor vehicle accidents (regardless of the severity of the impact), sports injuries or who perform repetitive work movements. If you are an office worker who sits for 6 to 8 hours daily, then you are at a higher risk of developing nerve compression of the cervical spine. This is mainly due to ergonomic workstations that can cause poor postural habits and lead to excessive stress on the cervical spine.

JUDD JONES: Sprinting for your health

In the early days of my youth, I wasn’t very athletic. One day, I was trying out for football and the coach made a comment to another coach “that kid was pretty fast in sprint drills”, of course the comment was directed toward me. That stuck with me, and the following year I tried out for the track team and became one of the fastest sprinters in my area at the time. Sprinting was my thing, and it became very useful as a physical conditioning tool and outrunning my bigger brother, who at the time was a city police officer. Long story on that last part, suffice to say he never did catch me.

COLUMN: Paints wrong picture

As a retired Los Angeles police officer, I was amazed at the column by Associated Press columnist Paul Newberry that appeared on page one and following of your sports section on Monday, July 30. Newberry seems devoted to a cause that is based on a false narrative, systemic oppression and police brutality in professional sports and, by extension, in American culture. He sounded as if we are still discussing the ’50s. I’ve always wanted to ask someone like him this “difficult” question: If a police officer works in a predominantly black section of town, do you or do you not expect said officer to confront mostly black people? Writers like Newberry maybe should go on a few ride-alongs before coming to any conclusions.

Cd'A schools superintendent: 'We must do better'

We failed. On behalf of Coeur d’Alene Public Schools, I would like to apologize for the circumstances surrounding the district’s mishandling of the vandalism that occurred in early June at Lake City High School. This repugnant act of disregard, disrespect, and spreading of hate language was completely unacceptable, and we continue to investigate it to see if we can find the individual(s) that perpetrated this act and hold them accountable. However, the manner in which we, as a school district, responded to this situation was not up to anyone’s standard, including mine.

However, the census form has not had a citizenship question since 1950.

From there we’d make regular stops walking downtown: Jack Dempsey’s restaurant, where the great boxer occupied a window booth; the small magic shop, where amazing feats were performed at the counter; and finally, Willoughby’s Camera Store. Dad loved cameras and talking photography with the salesmen there before we headed home.

Concepts such as fair trade, environmental sustainability, impact investing, fair wages, and good treatment of workers are becoming inextricably woven into corporate success. This is true especially among Millennials, now old enough to be major players in consumer and corporate cultures.

When working with patients that have chronic pain, it is not always straightforward and can be a time consuming process to determine the main factors contributing to the issue.

Acupuncture is considered “complementary medicine,” “alternative medicine” and “integrative medicine.” Complementary medicine means that it is a good adjunct to traditional, or “conventional” medicine (medicine that uses drugs, surgery and other modalities that we are most familiar with).
