A major milestone reaches 40 years

It was 40 years ago this week that the Rosdahl family moved from Seattle to Coeur d’Alene. It was a week (month) all the Northwest people alive on May 18, 1980, will remember.

Mount St. Helens in southwest Washington blew ash all over the Inland Northwest, It was so thick that cars were damaged and residents had to stay home. Many jokes were made and articles written about how several babies born nine months later were named Ashley, Helen and Dustin.

I started here at the Coeur d’Alene Press having had many years of journalism experience in Missoula and Seattle and with the Coast Guard in San Francisco and Chicago. When the position opened, I taught journalism at North Idaho College for 26 years, retiring 10 years ago.

Being in North Idaho is fantastic! We love it here, and we’re close to our ties in Montana and Seattle. And thanks to the Coeur d’Alene Press!
