Atlas site: Shore up this key condition

The city of Coeur d’Alene is doing a marvelous job with the acquisition and planning of the Atlas Mill site on the Spokane River. This project had its beginnings back in 2013 when the city decided to purchase the railroad property that runs from Riverstone to Heutter Road. That purchase did more than buy a strip of land: It gave the city great influence over everything that can happen along that portion of the Spokane River.

Sunshine Mine Disaster: A brief history

May 2 will mark the 46th anniversary of the 1972 Sunshine Silver Mine fire in Kellogg, when 91 miners lost their lives — a tragedy which still burns in the hearts of the close-knit Silver Valley and mining communities. According to the Bureau of Mines Final Report, two workers smelled smoke near the electric shop in the main haulage way and shouted a warning at 11:40 a.m. Smoke and carbon monoxide rapidly increased where most of the 173 men in the mine were assigned. Mine supervisors, after attempting to locate the fire, ordered an evacuation at 12:03 p.m.; 80 men escaped and only two were rescued. The remaining 91 men died of carbon monoxide poisoning. None of the survivors reported seeing fire or flames. The Bureau of Mines concluded a probable cause was spontaneous combustion of refuse near scrap timber used for backfill, although damage made it impossible to single out any single cause for the large loss of life.

Forests know no jurisdictional bounds. Insects, fire, and disease spread quickly without a thought to who has authority to stop them. So to be successful, efforts to manage forest health, and its impacts on people and critters, can’t focus on who owns what.

While I have a certain fondness for many films and pop culture of the 1980s and 1990s, I’ve never been much of a video game enthusiast (outside of shooting turtle shells from a go-cart), and the novel regards classic video games as a Holy Grail (at least alongside “Monty Python and the Holy Grail”).

AMERICA: Got to be good

The headline in the Sunday Press boldly proclaimed “Enough is Enough!” in reference to the recent “March For Our Lives” conducted across the country by hundreds of thousands of American “youths.” Of the students who even knew what they were protesting about, it’s interesting that they were protesting the symptom of the problem, instead of the problem itself. That problem is the decay of the moral fiber of this country.

Is your 'contractor' really an employee?

It’s all too common — employers simply deciding a worker is an “independent contractor,” to spare the company added costs of withholding, Social Security and Medicare taxes, insurance eligibilities and other hassles. More often than not, the employers are simply wrong; were the IRS or Idaho Department of Labor to examine the situation, they’d find their “independent contractor” is really an employee under the law, subjecting the employer to unexpected expenses, liabilities, and possible penalties.

What the collapse of Toys R Us can tell us about immigration

Toys R Us, which once was America’s largest toy store, has gone out of business for a number of reasons. Competition from online retailers and massive company debt certainly played a large part. However, the company’s last annual report also attributed its financial troubles to a declining customer base. The company noted that most of its end customers were children and that declining birth rates “could have a material adverse effect on our operating results.” That rings true.

RSVP stands for Retired Senior Volunteer Program. This program is designed to allow those retired seniors who have time on their hands and want to give back to the community to connect to people and organizations that need some volunteer help. Most of the organizations that need volunteer help are non-profits whose budgets are very limited and without this help would have to close their doors. Not all recipients of the volunteers helping hands are non-profits, the local police and sheriff office use many of the volunteers to do desk jobs and other tasks. This help allows the paid officers to do other necessary tasks thus helping local law enforcement budgets.

FEMINISM: And…abortion

The latest feminist attack on men is called “toxic masculinity.” It charges that males are so engrossed in being males that they become violent — witness the Florida shooting. Feminists find a willing audience for their latest emasculation ploy in liberal guilt-ridden, self-flagellating “males” who are only too willing to blame men for anything feminists claim. Curiously, feminists want to be as male as they can: They want to pretend to be soldiers, they want to water down male sports and then claim they get to play too, etc. Actually, the appropriate men’s scientific response to the continuing barrage of anti-man-ism is pfftthh — or something more colorful. For the record, I punched out one guy in high school (in self-defense) and I haven’t killed anyone all day!

ACCIDENTS: Waiting to happen

For those of you unfortunate enough to have to travel on Highway 53 from Washington state line into Rathdrum, then you must have noticed that all trucks are forced to go 30 mph. This means that you will also have to go 30 mph alone with the long line of cars behind the truck. This wisdom is put in place by the Idaho Department of Transportation to preserve the road surface from being damaged by changing temperatures. Apparently, a truck weighing 50,000 pounds going 55 mph will damage the road more than a truck at the same weight going 30 mph.

Orwell is alive and unwell in China

China’s Communist Party Congress recently announced President Xi Jinping’s two five-year terms had been extended. In so doing, the Party is most likely moving toward indefinite term limits for this President. Some commentators have related this situation to the life-long tenure of Mao Zedong and the associated calamities that befell China during Mao’s reign, such as the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution.

Korea: Land of the morning calm

Being home to one of the oldest civilizations on earth, the Korean peninsula has been the focus of many conquests. Its nickname, “Land of the Morning Calm” is a poetic translation of the name of the Korean “Joseon” dynasty that ruled the peninsula 1392-1897. Many references are available as to the origin of the moniker, but the nickname was coined by Percival Lowell in his 1885 book “Chosen, the Land of the Morning Calm.”

CARLSON: Ease up on Sali

In Chris Carlson’s column, The Carlson Chronicle, I get the feeling he is still trying to oust Bill Sali who served in Congress 12 years ago. Mr. Carlson refers to Congressman Sali as an obscure little known Legislator who was a disaster as a congressman. Mr. Carlson said that Bill Sali played up his adherence to Christian values and his 100 percent pro-life voting record. It is my understanding that those values are a plus in Idaho.

PARKING: Here's the predicament

City parking enforcement uses GPS to determine where a parked vehicle is located. GPS is only accurate to within 10 feet under the best of conditions. Buildings, etc., can affect that accuracy and the fact that the equipment being used may not be able to hold those tolerances you will find, if the parked car left and then came back, and then parked close to where it was originally parked within the two-hour period, that the monitoring equipment will say that it was never moved. We saw that in an article in the Coeur d’Alene Press that stated a motorist was cited when his vehicle was, in fact, parked the second time on the other side of the street from where it was originally parked.

VIOLENCE: Cut down districts

We would like to see well-trained people protect children in schools in this state from the maybe mentally ill killers with guns, etc. One way to pay for it is to cut the extremely excessive number of public school districts from 115 to no more than one public school district for the 44 counties in this state. Having 115 school districts appears to be extremely high and probably unnecessary for the 44 counties and a state population of 1.6 million, and extremely massive rip off of taxpayers of Idaho.

GUNS: Then and now

We live in a different world from that of our Founding Fathers. Theirs was a time when a gun was normally something you fired once and then stopped to reload. They hadn’t even the technology of the six-shooter. Firing six quick shots in rapid succession would have been advanced firing capability. They didn’t own firearms for recreational shooting; they owned firearms because they were taming and civilizing a harsh new land, and because they lacked the sophisticated police protection of our modern world.

WALKOUT: Just try this

Regarding the school walkout scheduled March 14, I would offer an alternative. In conjunction with Tom Hearn, Lisa May, Dave Eubanks, Bruce Twitchell and Stanley Olson, I suggest a letter could be sent to the parents of all our high school students. The letter would state something to the effect that since the latest national school system ratings place Idaho either 46th or 48th in the nation, we as a school board cannot condone this demonstration and disruption of classes. We, the board, suggest that these students be informed that any such demonstration should be held after the last class for the day or on Saturday.

GUNS: Thinly veiled bigotry

Wow! “Virtue signaling.” All one has to do to let the world know how virtuous you are, whether an individual, or a company, is to select your target group and castigate them. There are 5 million NRA members and millions more gun owners who don’t belong to NRA. They are not criminals of any stripe.

Late in the session, this bill is suspicious

Redistricting and gerrymandering are topics in the news as we approach the 10-year mark for new census data. The U.S. Census numbers affect the number of U.S. House of Representative seats allocated to states; thus redistricting based on those new numbers becomes critically important to the political parties. Idaho’s current, rather exemplary system for redistricting every 10 years is in jeopardy as a new plan is being introduced in the Idaho Senate.

Is everyone OK? He said “I am in Kentucky and I got into a car accident, I have no insurance and they took me to jail and I need some money to get out.” I said “can’t your wife help you?” He said “no, she did not come with me on this trip.” Then I told him, “GOT YOU!

School board tweaks cellphone policy

COEUR d’ALENE — The Coeur d’Alene School Board finalized its policy Monday night prohibiting most students from using cellphones during school hours, but expanded it to allow high schoolers to check their devices between classes. Policy 3265P, governing the district’s “Bring Your Own Device” program requires students in the Coeur d’Alene School District to turn off their personal electronic devices during school hours, and keep them “off their person” such as in a backpack or locker, during class and between classes.

We move the clocks as daylight saving starts on Sunday

On Sunday, March 11, most U.S. and European residents will move their clocks forward one hour. Daylight saving time is the cycle that starts in the second week of March and ends in the first week of November. The main purpose of this time change is to provide more daylight hours. One big reason the clocks are returned to standard time in November is because children would be going to school in the dark as the sun would be rising later in the morning.

AR-15: Seeking NRA help

I recently read a couple of articles about the effect of a bullet from an AR-15 on the human body. It has been described as unusually effective in killing things. The AR-15 uses smaller, lighter bullets and travels at a high speed. It acts like a gouge when fired into human flesh. To quote a medical professional examining a body from the recent MSDHS shooting; “The specific pattern of injury on my computer screen was one I had seen only once before. In a typical handgun injury…a bullet leaves a laceration through an organ like the liver…it appears as a linear, thin, gray bullet track through the organ. As I looked at a CT scan of one of the victims of the MSDHS shooting, the organ looked like an overripe melon smashed by a sledgehammer, with extensive bleeding.”
