Scooped 'em Again


May 30, I posted the announcement that Waterford Park Was selling the Trailer Park that had been purchased a couple of years ago. I then wrote the story for my column in the Spokesman-Review, which published Thursday, June 7. The News Department at the S/R followed up with a story, but it didn't publish today as expected.

Along comes the Coeur d'Alene Press, after reading my column, wondering if they could get into the action. The Press printed the story today, June 8. Nine days after the story happened. "Way to keep your nose to the ground Guys." Maybe they will start to read my blog now.

The expected listing of the Scenic R.V.Park didn't occur, as Waterford Park had second thoughts. Originally, and mentioned here, the plan was to list both. Activity at the Harborview Marina is still at a standstill, as Fish & Game, Idaho Department of Lands and others, ponder the work needed to mitigate the damage previously caused by sloppy construction practices.

Vista Bay Marina plans to kick start the Summer Sunday June 17, with a Dad's Day Brunch,from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

I need local help discovering interesting people and events for my print column. Anyone that knows of a coming event or occasion should call me with details.

Hey Scoop - I got a picture of the weird rock thingies. Check it out on my blog. Good reporting. I think you should do a column on, play-for-play, all the bar fights. Or the people who are 86'd. I hear there are a lot of repeat offenders. Happy Sunday - T.
