Ft. Irwin, an Army base near Barstow, provides the scout team for America. Soldiers there are like the second stringers in football who practice as the opposition to get the starters ready for the big game. Soldiers at Ft. Irwin play the aggressors, presumably the Soviet army. "And they usually win because the Russian technique is to put everything you have right up front," said Dave Spencer, a teacher and coach at Silver Valley High School.

Silver is no longer sovereign here in the world's largest silver-producing region. So another Western mining center, following a pattern established in mining areas of Colorado, Arizona and Utah, is prospecting for tourist dollars to survive. This time, though, there's more to overcome than the far-off forces that have driven down the price of silver. For the centerpiece of the fledgling tourism push in north Idaho's Silver Valley, a new aerial gondola--at 3.

Eleanor Gearhart's three sons were not yet alive in 1973, when a malfunctioning smelter spewed hundreds of pounds of lead into the air over Silver Valley. But their mother worries, just the same. The boys, ages 6, 9 and 17, have had their blood tested for lead poisoning. "As of right now, they don't have anything that I know of," their mother says. But that does not allay her fears, or those of other parents.

When the federal government needed lead for bullets and silver for machines during two world wars, the mines of the Silver Valley in northern Idaho ran nonstop. "I'm bringing you a plea from the boys in the service," Capt. John Edwardsen of the War Department said on a visit to nearby Wallace during World War II. "You give them the bullets to fight with, and they'll put them where they need to be."

On an artificial hill formed by a century of mining waste, residents of this depressed town envision a golf course, factories and a future. The federal government is buying into the dream. The Environmental Protection Agency designated the largest single grant of Superfund money in the nation next year for cleaning up the Silver Valley. The goal is to turn the Kellogg area into a place where residents are safe from pollution and where tourists can pull off Interstate 90 to spend money.

Barbara Miller wants the federal government to clean up toxic mining waste in Idaho's Silver Valley, where she lives. For that, she's been vilified by business interests and reviled in the media as "Barbarian Millstone." Her dog has been targeted, and she could even face the loss of her daughter. Northern Idaho's version of Erin Brockovich says many people in the region are in denial that lead-contaminated mine tailings are poisoning residents, particularly children.

Environmental Protection Agency employees assigned to clean up heavy metals contaminating the Silver Valley are being compared to terrorists. A newspaper columnist joked that EPA employees should be shot on sight. Such are the sentiments in this Idaho Panhandle community as the EPA decides Wednesday whether a Superfund site here should be dramatically expanded. Superfund is the agency's list of the nation's most dangerously contaminated areas, which are eligible for federal cleanup.

Like neighbors bickering over dog droppings, politicians in Washington and Idaho are battling over who should clean up decades' worth of mining pollution in the Silver Valley. The pollution, including lead and arsenic, flowed into Idaho's Lake Coeur d'Alene and entered Washington through the Spokane River, traveling all the way to its confluence with the Columbia. All sides agree the river basin should be cleaned up, but they differ on the approach.

When it gets too dirty, Lovon Fausett "mucks out" his pickup. When the veteran Silver Valley miner changes jeans, he puts on a new pair of "diggers." And when he wants to get rid of something, he "gobs" it. After 47 years in hard-rock mining, the industry lingo rolls off the retired drilling contractor's tongue. The words are part of a trade language used by miners across the country, especially in Idaho's Silver Valley.
