Eye On Boise

Whats-his-name approved

The state Senate was unanimous in confirming three North Idaho appointees to the Lake Pend Oreille/Priest Lake Commission on Wednesday, but Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint, had to set them straight on pronouncing attorney Ford Elsaesser’s name.

Lt. Gov. Jim Risch first said it ee-lasser. Then, the secretary of the Senate said el-sayer. Then, Risch came out with ee-lass-sisser.

Keough gently corrected it just by saying it right - el-sesser. The Senate had no problem with the other two names, Brent Baker and Linda Mitchell.
