MORNING HEADLINES: Cheap homes, a popular jail and Idaho sucking

Posted on Wed, Jun 1, 2011 at 8:57 AM

Kootenai County homes lose $900 million — For the fourth year in a row, homes in Kootenai County lost value, much like in rest of the nation. The depressed housing prices are reportedly endangering the economic recovery. (SR, WSJ)

Too many inmates — Ah, Memorial Day. What a great time to remember the men and women who died serving our country... and get arrested doing so. After a lengthy three-day weekend with 144 arrests, the Spokane County Jail inmate population reached "emergency" levels. (KXLY)

Idaho the worst — In terms of per pupil spending, Idaho comes in almost dead last. That's 50th place. Only Utah fares worse in the rank of 51 states and the District of Columbia. (SR)
