“My uncle said he used to put big truck tires in his stomach and then put it right on top of the truck,” Richard Simons said.

His father’s work ethic can be traced back to his childhood growing up in Coeur d’Alene. He presented the Coeur d’Alene press – by horse – in the early 1950s.
Richard Simons shows a black-and-white photograph taken by Connie Trembly of her father, a teenager, perhaps 14, sitting on his horse, in the newspaper of the day. Behind him is a large house, presumably a subscriber.
In the days when newspapers relied on children, they were delivered to customers’ doorsteps full of news and advertisements.
John Simons’ route is the best avenue section. Richard Simons doesn’t know how long his father delivered papers or how many subscribers he had, and doesn’t say much about his father’s days as a newspaper carrier, but Richard Simons knows he delivered his papers regularly.

His dedication to being a paper boy meant that in the winter, when John Simons finished his route, his mother had to come out and lift him off his horse—for good reason.

COEUR d’ALENE – Besides being “absolutely blown away” to be named the 2020 Citizen of the Year by the Coeur d’Alene Regional Chamber, Mike Patrick said:

“There are a lot of readers of The Coeur d’Alene Press who will agree that it’s wrong until Hunter Biden gets the scandal on the front page of The Coeur d’Alene Press,” he said as the crowd laughed.
The managing editor of The Coeur d’Alene Press since 2001 received the award Thursday night during the chamber’s annual meeting at The Coeur d’Alene Resort.
“As editor, Mike has been a daily part of our mornings. For the past 19 years, he’s given us a chance to reflect, inspired us to believe, given us laughter, you know April Fool’s jokes, and he tells us the truth about anything,” he said.
Rogers thanked Patrick, “19 years of pushing us to lean in a little bit more. You’re listening to Mike.

He said, “The best thing about Mike Patrick is something his wife says few people know about him: how much he does for others behind the scenes.
“In his position, he gets a lot of inside information about other people, and if he sees a problem that he can do something about, he jumps in with both feet, without letting anyone know. Including the person he’s doing it for.”
Watching the event on Zoom from The Press, Patrick was stunned and humbled by the Citizen of the Year award.
“When I heard Heidi announce my name, I thought maybe it was the worst cry of the year or a mistake,” said Patrick, who is married to columnist Sholay Patrick. “But for all of us after that year, I accept it — gratefully, and admit that I’m totally undeserving of it.”

“I believe the local newspaper is still the glue that holds a community together and reflects the community. The Coeur d’Alene Press has been the voice of this community for 133 years. I think the role of The Press is best reflected as we navigate the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Once in a lifetime Newspapers provided us with information and comfort during these pandemics.
Before coming to The Press, Patrick worked at the Daily Herald in Provo, Utah; Arizona Daily Sun in Flagstaff; and the Daily Record in Lawrenceville, Ill.
The “unrepentant” Chicago Cubs fan is an avid journalist who has won numerous writing awards and public service awards. He has been described as “a reporter who thrives on every high-pressure moment”.
“Forty years of asking who, what, when, where and most importantly: why. and taking heat from both sides. Mike says that an editor knows he’s doing his job: when no one is completely happy with him,” read a description of Patrick.

“Even with everything that happens, I don’t want to be anywhere else but in the Kootenay district,” Pouts said. “So thank you so much for the support. It is important that we continue to be empowered, united, courageous and knowing that failure is not an option.”
Volunteer of the Year (Ed Abbott Award) was presented to Rogers, CEO/Executive Director of the Northwest Council for Computer Education.
“Heidi has been fully involved in everything she’s done with the chamber this year, including championing a membership drive in the midst of the pandemic and finding/recruiting nearly all of the key people to make it a huge success given the frenzy we’re in. Always upbeat and her enthusiasm is contagious,” wrote Rick Rasmussen, who nominated Rogers.

Executive Director Mark Tucker, rising to the challenge of the coronavirus crisis this year and helping in many ways, said, “It really shows what United Way is about and what we’re here for, and what it’s reacting to and responding to. Great needs.”
“Most importantly, it does this in partnership with the rest of our community,” he said. “We knew we couldn’t do what we set out to do alone.”
The Large Business Partner of the Year award went to Goodenai Health, which has been at the forefront of caring for the community, especially this year, with the coronavirus. It was stretched to the limits of its ability, yet Goodenai Health and its staff responded to every call, and will continue to do so.

A crowd of about 350 listens to a speaker during the annual meeting of the Coeur d’Alene Area Economic Development Corporation at The Coeur d’Alene Resort on Wednesday.
Coeur d’Alene Area Economic Development Corp. Gynii Abracosa Gilliam, president and CEO, speaks Wednesday during the organization’s annual meeting at The Coeur d’Alene Resort.

Gilliam reminds himself that the problems that come with development are better than the alternatives: too many houses and apartments, empty offices and storefronts and empty streets: a lack of affordable housing, a shortage of workers and more traffic.
“Events are happening in many cities across America,” Gilliam told about 350 people attending CDAETC’s annual meeting called Jobs Plus at The Coeur d’Alene resort.
“So a few quick reminders. We have a strong economy, a great education system,” Gilliam said. “And we’re great at planning for the future. As I said before, big challenges give us opportunities for change.
CdAEDC is the economic development organization for the Kootenay District. It aims to take care of existing businesses, attract new ones and create jobs.

“During the height of the epidemic, it was our only focus,” according to a CdAEDC brochure, “Building for the Future.”
For business attraction, the focus is on community strength and supporting existing businesses. The brochure said it was important to bring in technology companies, expand health services and develop the biomedical sector.
Gilliam said CdAEDC and its partners are facing several key challenges, such as the 2,700 unfilled positions in Kootenay County.
“Cootenay Health, we feel your pain,” he said, referring to about 600 openings at the hospital. “And we know that if you can’t find nurses in that area, that affects all of us.”
