North Idaho Fair rolls around but here's a sneak peek at one of the new menu items for 2011. Ekness Catering, a perennial fair favorite food booth, debuted a fried bologna sandwich at Post Falls Days. Nice compliment to their North Idaho Beer Balls. So you can add this to the list of things to try, along with deep fried twinkies & meatballs, elephant ears and the like.

Kootenai County Assessor Mike McDowell and Residential Appraiser Manager Darin Krier (both pictured) took one for the team Tuesday morning, following through with the pledge to shave their heads, mustaches and beard if $1,500 was raised for a good cause. When Gary Logsdon took an early retirement as a residential appraiser due to a medical condition, with months until disability pay kicks in, his friends and co-workers set out to raise some financial cushion for him. McDowell and Krier raised $1,600 and earlier this month, Deputy Assessor Rich Houser raised $1,045 and received a buzz cut.

|In the course of an hour on Monday there was snow, hail, thunder and lightning. Then the sun came out and within minutes the accumulation on the roof melted, sending a stream of rainwater down from the gutters to the rain chain. Only in North Idaho!|

Celebrating the first day of Spring on Sunday, over 500 motorcyclists took their first ride of the year for the annual Frosty Buns Run. The procession made quite a sight on Sherman Avenue just after noon. The group started at Roadhouse Cycles in Post Falls, through Coeur d'Alene to Rathdrum and Athol. A little stinging rain and sleet was described as "invigorating" by a rider. :)
