Writings and observations

On the front pages

news

Former Idaho Senator Larry Craig has been reappearing in public venues a little more lately, in an Idaho state Republican volunteer role, at the Snake River Basin Adjudication closing ceremonies in August, and elsewhere. But the headlines related to his Minneapolis arrests and event departure from national politics stubbornly refuse to go away completely. A clean break with that piece of his past will happen only once the headlines do, which means closing out the financial obligations courts have imposed.

Here’s what public affairs news made the front page of newspapers in the Northwest today, excluding local crime, features and sports stories. (Newspaper names contracted with location)
