Two local government officials, Bannock County Commissioner Steve Hadley and Coeur d'Alene City Councilman Mike Kennedy, are sharing their communities' budget challenges with the Associated Taxpayers conference. Kennedy said Coeur d'Alene's budget outlook is a difficult one, but there is one revenue source - income from state liquor sales - that's up. "Being North Idahoans, we do what we do in a crisis - we drank our way through it," he said to laughter. Then he said he tested out the theory last night at Bardenay in Boise, and "it's happening in Ada County too."
