Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint, will stay home the first week of the legislative session because her husband, Mike, had a heart attack Friday night. "The good news is he's doing very well, and we were able to get to the hospital in time," she reported this morning. "He's progressing and improving rapidly." Keough expects to remain home this week; she'll monitor the governor's State of the State address and initial JFAC hearings via the Internet and Idaho Public TV, and is staying in close touch with her fellow District 1 representatives and Senate leadership. "The doctor has said that they expect Mike to be back at work in two weeks," she said.
