Jan. 14, 1970 — VETERAN SHOEMAKER
A.R. Rosholt, Rosholt’s Saddlery, comes from a long line of shoemakers and repairmen dating back to Norway. His father, a journeyman shoemaker, came west in 1900, taking a job with Humbird Lumber Co. and homesteading on Gold Creek. In 1923 the elder Rosholt opened a shoe business in Sandpoint, which has been located on Second Ave. since 1925. A.R. Rosholt bought out his father in 1945, and his shoe shop alone has survived out of five in business here then.

Jack Ross reported on deficiencies he found in the environmental health inspection. The building was lacking in student floor area, had poor wiring, ventilation and drinking facilities, substandard lighting, falling plaster and cooking and restroom facilities only in the basement. The faults were basically the same as those in a 1959 inspection.
