by TAMMY MARSHALL & r & & r & Back in School & r & & r & While driving when school is in session, remember to slow down in school zones or prepare for a ticket. Also, watch out for the stop signs on the sides of buses. If you pass when the red lights flash, you'll be committing a crime -- and potentially harming a child. Also, a worship ceremony celebrating the kiddies getting back in class will be on Sept. 7 at 10:30 am at St. Paul's United Methodist Church located on 1620 N. Monroe St. Call: 327-9539. Praise Jesus! They're back in class.

Yes! Statues!

Wander on over to Tubbs Hill in Coeur d'Alene and check out the new bronze statues by Terry Lee. The story about a moose named Mudgy and mouse friend named Millie came to Coeur d'Alene by way of the book by Susan Nipp, which inspired the illustrations by Charles E. Reasoner, which finally inspired the sculptures by Terry Lee. It could be the other way around, but anyway... three artists have created some new characters now happily living on Tubbs Hill. A welcoming ceremony for the characters in book and bronze form will be on Sept. 13 beginning at 11 am. Visit:
