Bagpipe, drum school attracts students from all walks of life

Judy Morrison first attended the Coeur d’Alene Summer School of Piping and Drumming in 1973, when she was 15. Morrison’s Scottish heritage drew her to the bagpipes, but the evolution of the music kept her interested, she said. Her husband also plays pipes, and her son is a drummer.

Mill site just what NIC, corridor plan needed

There are property deals, and there are property deals. The one that the North Idaho College Foundation finalized this week rises to what Coeur d’Alene Mayor Sandi Bloem characterizes as having legacy proportions. For $10 million, the foundation acquired the 17-acre site of Stimson Lumber Co.’s former DeArmond Mill, which is immediately significant for NIC’s growth needs. But it’s also something of a linchpin for the long-discussed higher education corridor that now seems more of a sure thing, even though it will take years to build out.

Two-year colleges’ enrollment climbs

Enrollment numbers for Inland Northwest community colleges are up as much as 22 percent this summer over a year ago, and numbers for fall are projected to jump up as much as 30 percent. High unemployment rates as well as pricier tuition and capped enrollment at public universities are leading more students to apply to two-year institutions, officials say. People are seeking two-year degrees tied to employment in specific industries. They also are getting their general equivalency diplomas to compete for entry-level jobs, or taking less-expensive credits en route to four-year degrees.

CdA champion closes chapter

When Josephine Webb was on North Idaho College’s board of trustees in the early 1970s, a developer presented a proposal to build condominiums on the property at the head of the Spokane River.

North Idaho College sophomore wrestler Tim McGoldrick had to travel about 2,500 miles to get a second chance and find himself. It’s been well worth it.
