  • New Name, Still Totally Bogus

    Locals can still call it "Bogus," but the nonprofit ski area above town is tweaking its name.

    The difference is slight: Instead of using the word "resort" in its title, the new name of the hill will be "Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area."

    "It was our choice to call Bogus Basin what it is," said Gretchen Anderson, spokeswoman for the ski and snowboard resort.

    Steve Smith, the editor of the Spokane, Wash. Spokesman-Review, has some ugly work ahead of him. He's been directed by Cowles Media, the company that owns his paper, to lay some staff off.

    Company-wide, the cuts may be as large as 30 people.

    "These cuts will mean a lesser paper," he said in a memo to staff. "Some things we do now, important things, will be eliminated. Our readers will notice."

    "Idaho ranks dead last," Kustra said.
