BITCOIN PROPERTY SALE
COEUR D'ALENE — — It's going to be interesting to see what prime real estate on Lake Coeur d'Alene goes for in the digital currency known as Bitcoin. Hayden resident Alan Golub is selling a package of 660 contiguous acres overlooking Moscow Bay that includes the site of the once proposed and controversial Chateau de Loire development. He is seeking a virtual pile of bitcoins. By David Cole of the Coeur d'Alene Press. SENT: 650 words for weekend use. With AP photos.
BOISE — It all started in 1983 with the purchase of an old tin that once held Campfire brand marshmallows. Pam and Dave Sorensen liked the tin's graphic design. The purchase kicked off a 30-year collecting project that involved buying other tins — for teas, peanut butter — as well as dry goods cases, shop displays and candy racks. By Anna Webb of the Idaho Statesman. SENT: 800 words for weekend use. AP photos pursuing.
MILLICAN, Ore. — The decision was not quite like turning back 250 feet short of the summit of Mount Everest — but I still believe it was the right choice. Exhausted from tromping through 6 to 8 inches of snow on a recent Thursday at Pine Mountain, I decided to return the way I had come just 0.3 miles and 250 vertical feet away from the top of the 6,405-foot Central Oregon peak. By Mark Morical of The Bulletin. SENT: 750 words for use Sunday. With AP photos.
