The Coeur d’Alene tribe is hoping to revive the number of cutthroat trout in Lake Coeur d’Alene, by moving a predator fish to another part of the lake.

So far, the numbers seem to indicate the process is working.

The Coeur d’Alene tribe is in the 3rd year of a program of moving Northern Pike from one section of the lake to another.

One case of mumps in Coeur d’Alene has prompted the school district to notify parents that if the outbreak worsens, unvaccinated students may be sent home.

The single case of mumps that was reported was that of an adult over age 50. That person is no longer contagious, but panhandle health officials worry there will be more. A couple hundred mumps cases have been reported in nearby Spokane.

Slowly - too slowly for the naked eye to discern - Lake Coeur d'Alene is shrinking, dropping below the normal summertime lake-full level. And that puts Avista Utilities in a bind.
