Michael Koep Author Talk at Library July 22

Local author Michael Koep will talk about his work and sign books in a program in the Community Room Friday, July 22. The doors will open at 6 p.m.
By the age of 12, Koep had written a complex, Tolkienesque fantasy with its own number system, language and runic alphabet. He continues that tradition with his fiction debut.
Koep has been called an Inland Northwest "Renaissance Man.” He is an avid world traveler, educator, accomplished visual artist, and a touring rock musician.
He is a co-founder of a North Idaho fencing consortium, but he is best known as a drummer and lyricist for progressive rock group KITE , as well as the percussionist for the variety power trio The RUB. He is a winner of a Costello Poetry Prize.
He lives in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho with his wife and son.
The mysterious death of a bipolar housewife forces psychologist Loche Newirth to see traces of insanity in the most terrifying place- in himself. All at once his practice is falling apart, his wife is leaving him, his mentor has gone mad and he is accused of murder. When he is called upon by a stuttering and sometimes stoned portrait painter claiming that his art provides a view into the afterlife, Loche discovers just how little he knew about the super-reality of human perception: that there is more to this life than meets the eye.
In part one of The “Newirth Mythology, The Invasion of Heaven,” a mystery unravels through a battle of wits between two psychologists. It is filled with a mind-bending cast of double-crossing characters bent on destroying what was thought to be beyond the reach of human treachery: the hoped for life behind death’s door.
Dr. Newirth must elude supernatural kidnappers and real life police detectives as he learns the harrowing truth about his place in existence. The journey takes him from the mountain lakes of Idaho to Northern Italy to across the astral plane – sometimes at the heels of a swashbuckling, poetry-spouting patient who often speaks in anagrams and claims he’s more than 600 years old.
Copies of the book will be available to purchase for signing and a portion of sales will benefit the Friends of the Library.


Patrons who need accommodation to participate in library programs or services are asked to contact the staff prior to the activity by calling 208-769-2315. For more library information visit cdalibrary.org orlcplibrary.org. The library is a department of the City of Coeur d’Alene and a member of the Cooperative Information Network, cinlibraries.org.

CDA Arts Commission Seeks Artists for Mural Projects


The City of Coeur d'Alene Arts Commission invites artists/artist teams to submit qualifications for consideration for two painted mural projects: 

·         Sherman Square Park located at 315 Sherman Avenue in Downtown Coeur d’Alene

·         Centennial Trail Underpass 

There is no theme for this Call to Artists; allowing for a creative interpretation that will reflect the vibrant beauty of the area.  

This call is open to all artists, designers, or creative individuals residing in the states of Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and Montana, regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, physical or mental disability.

Public art can be a change agent for the community.  It creates and establishes neighborhood and community identity and also enhances the visual landscape and character of the city.  It turns ordinary spaces into community landmarks and promotes community dialogue and, most important, it's accessible to everyone.

Information packets are available at City Hall, 710 E. Mullan Avenue, or online at www.cdaid.org.  Artist proposals are due by 5:00 p.m., August 13, 2016.  To ensure fairness, no extensions or waivers of deadlines will be granted.  Artists with questions are encouraged to contact Sam Taylor, Arts Commission liaison, at staylor@cdaid.org.

Tubbs Hill tree work scheduled for July, August

City of Coeur d’Alene crew will cut down dead and dying trees during July and August in order to help enhance public safety.

The Parks & Recreation Department and Coeur d’Alene Fire Department manage risk trees on Tubbs Hill yearly. Risk trees are those that are dead, dying, or have structural defects and are in close proximity to hiking trails. Due to a root rot disease and drought conditions there has been an increase in the number of dead trees on the hill. Crews will cut some of these dead trees and leave the debris onsite to break down naturally. Additionally, three large dead trees will be removed from the site by a contractor in August.

Dead standing trees have major benefits for wildlife habitat but can cause a public safety threat if they are too close to hiking trails. Tree risk assessments and removals also eliminate some of the most hazardous elements to firefighters while fighting fires on the hill. The Fire Department, Parks & Recreation Department and Idaho Department of Lands have combined resources to identify these trees and will distinguish those not being used as habitat for wildlife. Idaho Fish and Game has been asked for recommendations and local forest insect and disease experts have been consulted in management efforts.

At the beginning of August, three large dead ponderosa pine trees near the point will be removed for safety purposes. The trees are located so close to the water that the debris cannot be left onsite to break down naturally, since they will end up in the lake. Due to limited access, these trees have to be removed from the water’s edge with a crane and a barge. With support of the Tubbs Hill Foundation, this work will be accomplished making the hill a healthier forest and a safer place for recreation users.

No healthy trees will be removed and many dead trees will be left for wildlife habitat. Ongoing seedling planting efforts of species tolerant of root rot pathogens continue to promote a healthy stand of trees.


While tree work is in progress, there will be temporary trail delays; however there will not be any full trail closures. Please look out for posted signs and personnel that will be will be preventing access into work zones.

Coeur d'Alene Provides Second Update, New Instructions on Garbage Transition

Nearly all Coeur d’Alene garbage customers have received containers from the City’s new service provider, and this is the last week that Waste Management containers will be emptied of trash.
The City of Coeur d'Alene transitioned its garbage hauling service to Coeur d'Alene Garbage July 1. Follow these steps to take to make sure your old Waste Management containers are retrieved.
During the month of July, a team from Waste Management will be working to retrieve WM containers from the approximately 14,000 customers throughout Coeur d’Alene. We want to make this transition as easy as possible, so follow these steps:
  1. Nearly everyone in the City should now have a Coeur d’Alene Garbage toter. If you have not received it, please call (208) 769-2227 if you are a residential customer or (208) 457-1820 if you are a commercial customer. Now that you have your Coeur d’Alene Garbage container, please use only those toters. Do not place garbage in the Waste Management container, unless you have not received the Coeur d’Alene Garbage toter.
  1. On your normal trash pickup day, place ALL cans at the curb the week of July 5 through July 10, even if all containers have trash, or if some have nothing. Either Coeur d’Alene Garbage or Waste Management will empty the containers, pursuant to a deal with the City to ensure service remains uninterrupted. After July 12, place only the Coeur d’Alene Garbage toters at the curb. Place Waste Management’s old containers behind and off the curb to help Coeur d’Alene Garbage efficiently empty the containers that have waste.
  1. Continue to put all containers from both providers out on your normal service day in the fashion described above. Waste Management’s team will eventually get to your segment of the community and will take them away. We estimate the full transition will take approximately one month. We ask that you take the containers off the street after your service pickup each week to help keep streets free of clutter and to assist street sweepers navigating roads.
The City will continue to provide updates through this process. Again, if over the next month you have not received a Coeur d’Alene Garbage Container, residential customers may contact the City at (208) 769-2227. Commercial customers may call Coeur d’Alene Garbage at (208) 457-1820.

If you have any questions regarding this service transition with Waste Management, or about these instructions, please feel free to contact the Waste Management customer service center at (208) 765-4968.

City provides details on 4th of July Road Closures, Traffic Plan


Click the image for a larger view
Downtown Coeur d’Alene and a key freeway interchange will have numerous road closures in order to ensure adequate traffic flow for Independence Day festivities on Monday, July 4.
Click here to see a bigger version of the photo to the left.
The Fourth of July is a major celebration in the Lake City and many visitors and residents will spend their day watching the annual parade and the community funded fireworks show.

In order to prevent major backups on to Interstate 90 after fireworks, the on- and off-ramps at the I-90/Northwest Boulevard Interchange will be closed beginning at 8 p.m. July 4. Motorists will need to use another interchange to get to their final destination, which will help spread traffic flow throughout the community better.

The City’s downtown traffic plan to help motorists leave the area after the fireworks show will be implemented at about 8:45 p.m. Barricades, signage, and flaggers will assist in keeping traffic flowing away from downtown, with the focus being to get motorists to leave downtown either to the north or east. The ability to enter Northwest Boulevard from downtown will be blocked for this reason, and traffic control devices will usher motorists either toward Mullan, Front or Sherman avenues east or north on 1st through 7th streets, excluding 3rd Street, which is generally a one-way heading south.

“We want to ensure that residents and visitors can get to their planned destinations after fireworks as easily as possible, and we ask for patience while they leave the area,” said Deputy City Administrator Sam Taylor. “It will take some time to leave due to the many thousands of people who will attend.”


For full traffic control details, visit this linked PDF.
