North Idaho News

A wonderful place to live

Because I am busy and do not always have the time to reach out to each of my contacts personally as often as I would like I started sending a monthly update in May of 2009 as a way of keeping in touch and to offer helpful information. Here are links to those Newsletters as they appeared at the time. Please note that some of my contact information has changed since the early issues and that using the links in the newsletters will navigate you away from my site. Please enjoy and use these cached pages as reference!

Black Bear are common in North Idaho, last spring we had a mother and her two cubs frequenting our neighborhood. This always results in an all night barking session from our dogs followed by a trip to the dump and a thorough clean up of anything a bear might eat…and they are not picky! Once a bear starts to associate people with food they get more and more bold about raiding trash cans and dog dishes for food, pretty soon they are a pest and well on their way to a bear vs. human conflict of interest they will not win! If you love them, enjoy them from a distance and be diligent in your efforts to keep your trash, bird food, dog food, compost, any and all edibles out of their reach!To learn more about Black Bears check out these web sites: Washington Fish and Game-Living with Wildlife Revelstoke Canada-Bear Aware Idaho Fish... read more
