Duck’s death shocks golf community

Members of Avondale Golf Course frequently enjoy sightings of the local wildlife, from birds to deer to muskrats. But Dale the duck was special. For years, the black cayuga duck was Avondale’s unofficial mascot, beloved by golfers and staff alike. A group of four people allegedly ran Dale over with a golf cart Friday, killing the duck and devastating the Avondale community who loved it.

Sandy Emerson's Chamber legacy

Summer smoke, fan mail and more

I first met Sandy Emerson in fall 1984, when he managed the Coeur d'Alene Chamber of Commerce from a small building on what is now the northeast corner of The Coeur d'Alene Resort's front lawn. I was fresh off the U-Haul truck from Lewiston, where I had been news editor of the Morning Tribune. I'd swapped that hat to return to reporting. At The Spokesman-Review CDA bureau, I was assigned to cover local government (City Hall and the county courthouse). I dropped by Sandy’s office to get a feel for the town and my new beat. I don't recall much about that visit, other than Sandy was smoking a pipe with sweet-smelling tobacco and viewed me as another in a string of reporters from the "out-of-state newspaper" -- a common put-down of the SR by The Press and allied local leaders during the "Great North Idaho Newspaper War” (1980s-90s).

OPINION: Judge them by their actions, not their words

Members of Idaho’s Congressional delegation would probably not receive any heroism awards for their actions relating to the PACT Act, also known as the “burn pit” bill. When the Act came up for a vote, our Congressional troops flat failed to protect the backs of sick veterans. Representatives Russ Fulcher and Mike Simpson voted against final passage of the bill in the House. Not to be outdone, Senators Mike Crapo and Jim Risch both voted against the legislation on three separate occasions.

Protecting the sanctity of life or violating religious freedom? Idaho faith leaders discuss abortion

With a diverse religious community in the state, groups including the Catholic Church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Jewish community and others hold different perspectives when it comes to abortion.

Everyday physics, and your own particle accelerator

Everyday physics, and your own particle accelerator

The most high-profile physics subfield is high-energy and particle physics, where physicists try to break down atoms to find the smallest possible ingredients that make up everything — by literally ramming stuff together as fast as they can with particle accelerators like the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest in Switzerland. Why does this matter? Breaking things down is how we learned what goes on inside atoms, and how electrons work. That knowledge underpins all modern electronics as well as nuclear technology. Plus, almost every one of us has a particle accelerator at home: a microwave, or an old-style CRT TV — the kind used before LCD became mainstream.
