NEWS: The Rachel Dolezal revelations weren't made by a private investigator, they were made by two Coeur d'Alene Press reporters doing their job.


Back to his roots

Nobody wants to see that

Trump realizing what he's getting into
President Donald Trump talked about healthcare Monday, and the plan to replace the Affordable Care Act, saying, "I have to tell you, it's an unbelievably complex subject. Nobody knew that healthcare could be so complicated."

Bomb threats continue

The bomb threats to Jewish community centers and schools haven't stopped. The Anti-Defamation League says 20 threats were made Monday, and since Jan. 1, there have been 90 incidents in 30 states and one Canadian province, according to the JCCA.
