Coeur d'Alene (pronounced /ˌkɔr dəˈlein/) is the largest city of Kootenai County, Idaho, United States. The city is located about 25 miles east of Spokane, Washington.

The current population of approximately 50,000 is growing at a feverish pace due to the local arts and tourism. Key points of interest are the Coeur d'Alene Resort (which has the longest in-land floating boardwalk), Lake Coeur d'Alene, the Festival of Lights parade, and the Car d'Lane Classic Car parade and show.

The town is nestled in a valley, surrounded by mountains on all sides. It is bordered to the north by Hayden and Dalton Gardens, and Post Falls to the west. To the south, there is Lake Coeur d'Alene, which includes a public beach and waterfront area, as well as a private beach at the bordering North Idaho College.

A lot like big-city building department, but way more restrictive and difficult. Getting a permit through the building department is harder than going to Wal-Mart and not picking up any junk food. The time it takes to get plans through the building department is slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter.
I went to the Coeur d'Alene building department this morning, and then I decided to improve my day by plucking my eyeballs out.

A public school for the insanely smart/nerdy (but not afraid to show it), awesome - sauce students in North Idaho. Generally considered the best school in the world. Students attending can expect approx. 13 hours of homework per night. However, it will all pay off when you get to join the gigantic Charter chess club or Academic Team (which has progressed to nationals, three years in a row).
Stupid kids (who are forced to attend other North Idaho schools cuz they just generally suck at life), look in jealousy at Charter as its shining, godly students ascend to Penn State and MIT.
Suck it bitches.
Wow. That kid is pretty damn smart...he must go to Coeur d'Alene Charter Academy...
