Governor brings Korean delegation, general to Star

Here’s an odd one: Idaho Gov. Butch Otter will welcome General Colin Powell to a dinner at Otter’s ranch Monday in Star, where the governor and First Lady Lori Otter will be hosting participants in the Korea-Pacific U.S. Joint Economic Conference. But neither the governor nor Powell will have any comment or say anything to the public about why a Korean group and the general are coming to Star, Idaho. An Internet search shows that the conference is taking place Monday and Tuesday in Boise, its lead sponsor is J.R. Simplot Co., and it’s the group’s fifth annual gathering.
