Dirty Dash registration opens

 

The popular Dirty Dash opened registration today for the 2013 “race” to be held at Riverside State Park on July 13.

Loyalty registration, which runs until Jan. 30, costs only $35. After that the price to sign up steadily rises the closer we get to the event.

“Resolve to make 2013 your dirtiest yet and we guarantee to make that happen for you in one unforgettable morning of feasting on filth, groveling through grime, delighting in dirt, and wallowing in mud rather than self-pity,” a news release from Dirty Dash said.

Prescription Drug Drive

If you have a medicine cabinet full of left over prescription drugs, the Coeur d' Alene Police Department would like you to safely dispose of them.

This Saturday you can hand over your prescription drugs at the Coeur d’Alene Public Library from 10:00am to 12:00pm.

"There are many risks associated with storing prescription drugs that are not part of a current drug therapy," wrote Sgt. Christie Wood with the Coeur d'Alene Police Department

"The prescriptions may be outdated and not effectively treating the symptoms they are intended for. If prescription drugs are being stored and the person they are for is not taking them according to the prescription, it is possible they could be taken by mistake or potentially stolen.
