Ground broken for new addition at Cd'A Homes


COEUR d'ALENE -- When Patty Duke turned over the ceremonial spade of earth for the new addition at Coeur d'Alene Homes Friday, she performed one other gesture with even more significance, at least to her. She bent down and picked up a small bit of the dry dirt beneath the aged, towering pines of the grounds.

'I was kissing the dirt,' she said afterward. 'It was a message to my mom.'"
