More information about Final Jeopardy:
A few books and newspaper articles over the years have descriptively referred to the Idaho Panhandle as “the chimney”, as unlike many of the other panhandles (Oklahoma and Florida), Idaho’s juts north, making it look like a chimney. The State Motel in Coeur d’Alene even has a chimney shaped like a map of the state.
