CRITTERS: Tale of 2 columnists

I’ve got to tell you… It’s A Brand New Day for me when I read Christian Ryan’s Critters of North Idaho column. Quite informative and enlightening especially to hear how the fisher, a close cousin of weasels, strategically outsmarts a porcupine by dancing circles around the porcupine before repeatedly lunging forward, striking the porcupine’s unprotected head. Then it rolls the porcupine over and eats from its belly. Strategic indeed! Now this was an enjoyable read.

Pondering the necessity of bird dogs willing to put up with their owners

I heard a story about a bird dog that couldn’t be trained, and usually ran off flushing pheasants and Huns a quarter-mile away in the wrong direction. One day the dog, an English pointer, sprinted off after scent and its owner sighed, realizing he would get rid of the darned dog as soon as he returned to the ranch. Maybe trade him for a weaner pig, a lame ewe or a one-legged hen.

CRITICISM: Dos and don'ts

Making assumptions on someone’s character from their beliefs is always a mistake if you want a meaningful discussion.

But if you were to guess this critter gets its name because it likes to eat fish, you’d be dead in the water (pardon the pun!).

Sunspot activity is non-existent

One of the indicators that Cliff and I look at when determining long-range forecasts, especially for the winter seasons are sunspots, or storms on the sun. When the sun is going through an active cycle, there will be many sunspots, which can trigger solar flares that can ultimately create disruptions with satellite communications as well as increase the Earth’s temperature. However, when the number of solar storms decrease, then we could see a drop of our planet’s temperature, as was the case in 2007 and 2008.

FEMINISM: One man's view

Lawyer Michael Avenatti claims “she hit me first” to justify his striking a woman. He’s right. If “she” had been “he,” we’d be talking about self defense, but women have somehow acquired the right to assault a man and then whip out the “ya can’t hit a girl” card. For many decades feminists have been shrieking about being treated like equals to men. Men should show their support and respect by doing exactly that — no special rights, no free punches. To do otherwise would be sexist and chauvinistic.

Let's give thanks for the Americans who fought in the Great War

The furor has died down over the President’s failure to attend a ceremony at Belleau Wood on November 10 to honor Americans who fought for us in World War One. But we should know about and never forget those brave souls. The President reportedly blamed his staff for failing to tell him that skipping the ceremony would be a public relations disaster. That’s probably because, like most of us, he did not know the significance of the desperate battle at Belleau Wood.

REQUEST FOR RELEASE OF FUNDS On or about December 4, 2018 Idaho Housing and Finance Association will submit a request to HUD for the release of HOME funds under Title II of the Cranston-Gonzales National Affordable Housing Act, as amended through 1998, to undertake a project known as Post Falls Senior Apartments for the purpose of a new construction 66-unit apartment complex which will provide affordable senior housing. The approximate 6.09 acres project site is vacant land located across E. 3rd Ave. from 3321 E. Park Ridge Loop, Post Falls, ID 83854. FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT Idaho Housing and Finance Association has determined that the project will have no significant impact on the human environment.

HUD's approval of the certification satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA and related laws and authorities, and allows IHFA to use Program funds. OBJECTIONS TO RELEASE OF FUNDS HUD will accept objections to its release of funds and IHFA's certification for a period of fifteen days following the anticipated submission date or its actual receipt of the request (whichever is later) only if they are on one of the following bases: (a) the certification was not executed by the Certifying Officer of the RE (b) the RE has omitted a step or failed to make a decision or finding required by HUD regulations at 24 CFR Part 58; (c) the grant recipient has committed funds or incurred costs not authorized by 24 CFR Part 58 before approval of a release of funds by HUD; or (d) another Federal agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR Part 1504 has submitted a written finding that the project is unsatisfactory from the standpoint of environmental quality. Objections must be prepared and submitted in accordance with the required procedures (24 CFR Part 58) and shall be addressed to HUD at CPD Director, 1220 SW 3rd Ave., Suite 400, Portland, OR 97204-2825.

CRITTERS OF NORTH IDAHO: Appaloosa

Every state has its symbols, and Idaho is no exception. Our state fish is the cutthroat trout. Our state flower is Lewis’ mock-orange. Our state bird? That’s going to be the mountain bluebird. What about our state mammal? That title goes to the Appaloosa horse (Equus ferus caballus). Unlike the normal cast of critters we cover here, the Appaloosa horse is not truly wild, and not native to Idaho. In fact, no modern horses are native to anywhere in the New World, including the famous “wild” mustangs of the American southwest. Thousands of years ago, truly wild horses once roamed the plains of North America alongside mammoths, ground sloths, mastodons and saber-toothed cats. Appaloosas are not the descendants of these Ice Age horses, as they and many other Ice Age animals were sent into extinction by severe climate changes that characterized the end of the Ice Age.

Morning-after election reflections

Voting early, absentee or at the polls on election day ... I’ve always preferred the latter. Having lived in the same precinct for decades, I’m a familiar face on election day, as are many of the returning poll workers each year. This past spring for the primary elections, instead of voting in the morning as is my habit, I voted in the evening on my way to a city council meeting.

Bravo to Steve Cameron for the Nov. 13 piece on Medicaid Expansion.

I anticipate a lot of blowback for Steve especially from those who, to use Steve’s words, think only of ideology. This is thoughtless, inhumane and frankly downright mean-spirited.

Autoimmune: What goes wrong

According to the American Autoimmune and Associated Diseases Association, Inc. there are an estimated 50 million people in the United States who are suffering from autoimmune disorders. This is more than three times the number of Americans diagnosed with cancer, either active or in remission. This probably doesn’t include those not diagnosed or those who’s illness is on the border of degrading to an autoimmune state. That’s a lot of Americans! If you are one of them, or desiring not to become one of them, you need to know what to do to diminish as much as possible, this terrible state of degeneration from occurring.

MIDTERM: Conservatives unite

Probably the most important election in 50 years is coming up on Nov. 6. Conservatives need to get off their posteriors and vote in mass to keep socialists at bay. Our republic depends on conservatives winning the midterm election for our country to stay free of socialists’ control! Socialism is only a tiny fraction away from being classified as Communism!

SOUZA: For state Senate

In these turbulent times, there is no one better suited to represent the 4th District in the Idaho State Senate than Mary Souza. Senator Souza’s background in the medical field, as well as her experience with the state’s budget makes her especially qualified to deal with the impact of Proposition 2, which is expected to pass. Proposition 2 expands Medicaid and can be expected to significantly impact the state’s budget as it has in every other state where such expansions have been implemented.

PROP 2: A provider's view

I have worked as a psychiatric nurse practitioner in the North Idaho community since 1998. It is a well-known but little acknowledged truth that individuals with serious mental health issues are not as likely to work full time or have health insurance. Because of the restrictive requirements for getting Medicaid in this state, a large percentage of my patients over the years have been uninsured.

Because of this, I can say confidently that Dan Gookin is, by far, the best choice for Kootenai County clerk.
