So many people are tired today. If tiredness is a part of your life it would be wise to investigate the cause and get rid of it. Living with fatigue is just not fun!

Although it is common knowledge that many health issues cause fatigue, we sometimes forget that other things, such as diet and exercise, certain lifestyle activities, as well as medication usage, can be contributing factors.

Much has been written about large, popular groups giving to those in need. The group “The Charity Chicks,” with only 12 members, gave $1,250 to my granddaughter, who although she has just recently returned to her full-time minimum wage job, was still struggling to meet her every day expenses. She was diagnosed with breast cancer just before Christmas three years ago and has endured chemotherapy, radiation, a double mastectomy and double reconstruction, as well as three other surgeries to complete this long journey. There is also a possibility of one more surgery next summer.

Kootenai County, a Christian community

First, I would like to thank Mike Patrick and The Press for giving me the opportunity this past year to highlight some of the many Christian ministries in our community. We have many more to cover this next year! Some might say that Kootenai County is not a “Christian County,” but when you look at the hundreds of churches and independent ministries reaching the poor, addicted, homeless and others in need, we are indeed a Christian community of people.

Christmas weather records

Tuesday is Christmas Day and there’s a good chance we’ll have a fourth year in a row with snow on the ground in North Idaho. As I mentioned last week, according to Cliff’s records, there has never been a white Christmas in Coeur d’Alene for five consecutive years. Based upon the warming of sea-surface temperatures in the south-central Pacific Ocean, it certainly looks like this could be the case for the Christmas of 2019.

Idaho is a state with little population compared to other states, only just over a million people live here.

That means since Idaho began incarceration of offenders, all the way up to the year 2000, only 55,000 people had been convicted and sentenced. This is where the picture gets frightening.

On the edge

UPDATE: Late Tuesday, the city planning commission in Coeur d’Alene denied two requests by the developer of the River’s Edge apartment project. Commission members unanimously denied the developer’s request for a special use permit that would allow the project to move forward with an R-34 designation, a use that allows significantly greater residential density than the regular residential zoning designations within the city. The commission also denied a proposed limited design planned use development. Commission members did, however, approve a zoning change from R-12, a lower density, residential use, to C-17, a mixed-used designation that allows more residential units per acre and some commercial uses. The special use permit and PUD denials were made “without prejudice,” which allows the developer to reapply to the city for the permit and PUD, but not for a year.

BIBLE: The law says…

One fact in the Constitution that is ignored and forgotten is that judges cannot make law — they can only give opinions about law. The executive department enforces law. Three classic examples of presidents ignoring Court opinions are Jefferson (Marbury vs. Madiso), Jackson (Worcester vs. Georgia) and Lincoln (Dred Scott decision).

It’s a huge event that requires months of planning and logistics and generous donors and volunteering by “elves” to wrap the gifts that are taken to the Greyhound Park, pack and carry out boxes of food for holiday meals, etc.

DALTON: Cause for concern

We are also longtime Dalton residents and have attended many council meetings, just as the Sonnens. We do not believe the Streeter property is a unique circumstance, as they stated, since our acreage was also divided decades ago into separate taxable parcels. Our back acreage is undeveloped and has no street frontage; it would be hard to believe the only two such properties in Dalton would both be located on the same street. Chances are more do exist and the Streeter subdivide, if allowed to proceed, would open the door for future legal challenges to anyone wishing to fight an arbitrary date. These challenges would occur at the expense of Dalton residents just as the current one has.

District gets an earful from taxpayer

The front-page headline “School district gets earful from survey” (Monday, Dec. 3, 2018) doesn’t seem appropriate at all. The article begins with “827 local residents made their voices heard …” that is less than 2 percent of Coeur d’Alene’s population, and doesn’t include all the folks that live elsewhere in Kootenai County but are served by the school district. It goes further to state that most respondents were school district employees/family members and parents with children in the school system; 96 percent of them voiced support. What a surprise! That still doesn’t explain the headline: WHERE’S THE EARFUL?

ENTITLED: No, we're not

This special interest group is led by the head of the Republican Party within Kootenai County. This frivolous lawsuit is nothing more than a political stunt attempting to circumnavigate the 364,861 Idahoans who voted for Prop 2. This lawsuit is a shameful waste of taxpayer dollars in an attempt to score political points.

FAITHFUL OBSERVATIONS Man in the Mirror a bright reflection

We have covered a number of ministries that seek to heal broken people and families. These include chaplains in the jails, people running halfway houses for the addicted and broken, others helping women and children in crisis. In every case when we asked about the root causes of these tragedies, it always pointed back to broken families and a reminder that 40 percent of children in our area don’t live with their biological father. We have fathers who have walked away from their families and parents not willing to make the sacrifices necessary for their children.
