The Washington State Employment Security Department says we can expect about 15,000 people to be hired for retail jobs in the holiday shopping season. That's a 1.7 percent increase over last year. And if you'd like to find some of those jobs, go to: https://fortress.wa.gov/esd/worksource/employment.aspx


The Coeur d'Alene Police Department on Monday put out a list of Halloween safety guidelines:

  • Wear light colored clothing; even better, wear something that is retro-reflective. Keep the clothing short enough to prevent tripping.
  • Make sure children can see well through face masks, Avoid wearing masks which can block vision, or use makeup.
  • Trick-or-treat during the daylight. If you must trick-or-treat at night, carry a flashlight. Adults should always accompany young children.
  • Stay within the neighborhood and only visit homes you know or attend community-sponsored events.
  • Travel with a parent, older sibling, or a group of children.
  • Watch for traffic. Cross streets carefully, at corners, never in the middle of the block, especially between parked vehicles.
  • Only give and accept wrapped or packaged candy. Never eat candy before an adult has had a chance to inspect it.
  • Keep costumed children away from pets. The pet may not recognize the child and become frightened.
  • Avoid hard plastic or wood props such as daggers or swords. Substitute with foam rubber, which is soft and flexible.
  • Motorists need to slow down. Try driving five miles-per-hour slower than the posted speed limit. Be extra alert to children crossing the street.
  • Turn your headlights on. Even in daylight, headlights will make your vehicle more visible.


Some parents this Halloween are worried about their children coming into contact with sex offenders in their neighborhood.  To see if there is a registered sex offender living in your neighborhood, go to: www.co.kootenai.id.us/departments/sheriff/ in Kootenai County. In Spokane County go to: scso.spokanesheriff.org/
