It appears we could have a new task for reporters at The Press. With the change in library trustees, the public needs to keep informed about books that these people choose to move or remove from circulation. We w...
POWER OF THE PULPIT: Don’t blame churches
It is unfortunate that we have to blame someone else when we don’t get what we want, but that’s what appears to be happening here. The recent library trustees election revealed the will of the people — the new tr...
DAYTON: Letter got it right
Normally when I see a LTE from Ron Dayton I cringe. Rarely do I agree with him. However, his LTE of May 26 thanking all the vets for their service was outstanding.
BANDUCCI: Should ‘practice what he preaches’
Violence in the workplace is an unacceptable thing in a civilized society. That point was made abundantly clear when NIC Trustee Todd Banducci was assaulted in his office earlier this month. The quick condemnatio...
REGAN: Promoting hoaxes
In his Friday column, KCRCC Chair, Brent Regan performed his same old tired song and dance claiming people are easily manipulated by lies and propaganda, then repeating a litany of fake news he wants you to belie...

SCHOOL LEVIES: ‘Just give them the money’
Why have school levies? If it fails, then they have another one and it passes. Just give them the money instead of wasting our time and money.

CDA STREETS and PARKS: ‘Proud of my hometown’
Quick tip of the hat to the city of Coeur d'Alene Street Department and Parks Department.
'ICE QUEST': Struggle is real
Josa Snow’s “Ice quest” article (Sunday, May 21) correctly portrays the rapidly growing need to accommodate ice sports and recreation programs (e.g., youth/adult hockey, figure skating, public skating sessions, c...
